This is a photo of Dr. Josiah McGee Bland’s headstone from way back in the day. Dr. Bland is the great-great-grandfather of Nedra Harris Turney, through her mother, Katherine D. McJunkins Harris. Nedra’s cousin, Helen Marie McAdams had the photo above.
In the photo below you can see the difference in the cemetery, and how much it has grown, around his grave.
What a difference time makes.
This is a close up of his headstone.
Dr. Bland served in CO E. 4th ARK INF for the CSA.
This is Dr. Josiah McGee Bland.
He was born 19 Jan 1842 and he died on 14 Feb 1891. He is buried in Saratoga Cemetery, in Saratoga, Arkansas.
This is how Dr. Bland is related to Nedra.
