Attached in an image (.jpg) of a marker I recently found on my great grandmother's grave in South Bridgton, Maine. Her name was Rebecca R. Merrill, widow of my great grandfather Stephen Merrill who died of wounds received in the Civil War.The marker was on her grave. If you can tell what it means I will appreciate it.
Hi Tom, I do have W.S.R.C. listed in the Flagholder section of my site, but did not have a photo of a marker until yours came in. I will use yours. I believe WSRC is similar to WRC (Women's Relief Corps) which is explained on the site. It may even be a predecessor of it since this has a date of 1869 and the WRC gives 1883 as its founding date. I am guessing Women's Service Relief Corps. The bulk of my library remains unpacked since my move last year, so I am unable to check my references. Perhaps one of our other guests can answer the question for us.
Woman's Relief Corps
