[Note: My research indicates M. K. was a member of Co. B, 11th Illinois Cavalry and not the 1st Illinois Cavalry as shown on the gravestone. His first name was Melancthon and my records indicate he was born abt 1845 in Pennsylvania, son of Daniel Frank and grandson of Elizabeth (Kuntz) Frank (my GGG-Grandmother) who is also buried in Penn Ridge Cemetery. His brother, Luther G. Frank, was a member of Co. D, 86th Illinois Infantry and was killed in action at the Battle of Peach Tree Creek, GA, on July 19, 1864...submitted by Steve Frank.]
