Tombstone Tuesday - Charles Haase in Evergreen Cemetery (The Evergreens Cemetery), Brooklyn, New York

Charles Haase, born about 1838 in Germany, died in Brooklyn 10 January 1891. Married to Barbara Reinhardt. Finding this headstone, which also reads "Private, co. H, unit 33, NJ infantry," was my very first indication that I had a Civil War veteran in my family and was the impetus for one of my most exciting lines of research.
