Alexander M. Asbury – Private, United States Army

My great-great grand uncle is buried at Arlington. Can I get him listed on your site?  His information is as follows:

Enlisted in the 25th Regiment, Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry, Company A at Victory, Wisconsin on August 14, 1862.

Alex died May 25 1865, in Washington, D.C., of disease (from mumps contracted during the march through the swamps of South Carolina).

He is Buried in Arlington National Cemetery, Section 13, Grave 10536, not too far from the famous “Tomb of the Unknowns.”  His headstone inscription reads, “10536,  A. M. Asbury, Wis.”
