The West Virginia Archives advised our family there were no records of where
John Henry Fetty was buried and that he was probably buried in a mass grave with thousands of other Civil War Casualties in Cold Harbor, Va.. Navada & Kristin Fetty searched the Cold Harbor Cemetery and found John Henry Fetty's Headstone.
Navada & Kristin Fetty interviewed several Civil War Historians in the Richmond, Virginia area and found records indicating that John Henry Fetty was wounded in one of the skirmishes before the major battle at Cold Harbor and died in a field hospital close to Cold Harbor and was buried in the field next to the hospital. He was later moved to the Cold Harbor Cemetery with others from the hospital graveyard to the Cold Harbor National Cemetery..
