War headstones along with their documentation but also manage to 'capture' Mexican War 
stones when I manage to find them. One that I found is: G. B. List, CO. B., 3rd IND. 
INF., MEX. WAR. He is buried in the Homelake Cemetery, Monte Vista, Rio Grande County, 
COLO. just in case you might want to add that little bit of info to his entry on your 
webpage. Are you aware of any websites where they are documenting the burial places 
of the Mexican War vets? I have found them for the Civil War and the Spanish American 
War vets and they are pretty neat. I have only documented about 8 of them in several 
years of cemetery prowling but would be glad to share if someone had such a webpage.
