*(Notes:  "Post Wheeler" was the L. M. Wheeler Post 92 of the Grand Army of the Republic.   The G.A.R. was a fraternal and benevolent organization for Union Civil War veterans, much like the American Legion which was established after World War I.  The Wheeler post was located in Saratoga Springs.  The G.A.R. marked graves of Civil War veterans with a medallion affixed to a metal post, again similar to the later American Legion markers. Unfortunately, these markers are not permanently affixed to the grave and many have been lost, stolen or destroyed since their original installation.
