I don't know where you live so it is hard to tell you what is closest to
you, but I live in GA and I try to keep a running list of things that I
need and then when I get to go to Macon, GA, I go to the Washington
Memorial Library, which has a very large genealogy department there and
they are most helpful!!! They have the Military records and pension
records there. This is easiest and quickest for me.
Also why is the government going to charge you to put a marker up for
him??? The Marker is free through the veterans affairs department or
something like that, so unless they are charging you to have somone go
out and put it on the grave, I do not see where the fee comes in. You
can order these markers yourself and put them on the graves yourself if
you are close enough. I ordered one for my husband's ggrandfather and
placed it at the grave and then we had some reenactor friends of ours to
have a Confederate Memorial service for him. It was awesome.
Hope that this helps.
