This issue of the Marion Record gives the list of the forty-one members of Pollock Post No. 42, the local G.A.R. post. The list includes the veteran’s name and number of the company in which he served. Also listed in this issue is the “Honor Roll of the Dead,” a list of veterans who are buried in Highland Cemetery (now Marion Cemetery). Three of those listed are buried in other cemeteries.
