I absolutely love the George Rose farm, despite my inability to get close enough for a good quality photo :-). Here we see not only the beautiful fieldstone farmhouse and some outbuildings but also the 110TH Pennsylvania monument and the little stone bridge which traverses DeTrobriand Avenue. I’ve always wanted to visit the farm but don’t want to trespass . . . if there’s any (legal) way an average Joe tourist can get close enough for a decent photo without needing express permission, please let me know in the comments!
PVT. THOMAS J. GUNN
Co. G, 18TH Virginia Infantry
Born between 1834/37 --- Died July 03, 1863
Pvt. Gunn enlisted in April 1861. Married to Mary or Martha, he was the father of Laura (age 6 at the battle of Gettysburg) and Elizabeth (age 1, or she may have been born in August 1863). Thomas’s brother died at the battle of Five Forks in 1865, adding another tragedy to the family.
