Tombstone

Benjamin P. Crooker
Arlington Cemetery
Moville, Woodbury County, Iowa
(1820 - May 6, 1891)

Headstones provided for Deceased Union Civil War Veterans: Benj. P. Crooker, Pvt. Co. F., 27th Iowa Inf. Date of Death, May 6, 1891, Cemetery Arlington, Moville, Iowa. (note: the typed index says 1896, but the hand written version looks like 1891.)

His widow filed for a pension in Nov 1891 and was a widow in 1895. So the 1896 date has to be incorrect. But I am seeing the 1896 date in various places including Find a Grave.
