    I am doing research on the 25th infantry, and found that one of the soldiers who was “discharged without honor” after an incident (wrongly!) is buried in Lincoln Cemetery. His marker simply says Samuel W. Harley/Co C/25th Inf/NY Vol. He was borne Jan 1868, and died alone at the Penna State Lunatic Hospital on 1-2-1917. During his time in the US Army, he was part of conflicts in the Philippines and the Arizona Territory (then known as Apache Territory). He service in the 25th infantry and the 9th cavalry, died single, and from what I can find, was an excellent soldier. Thought you might want this information. Take care.
