Grave of Asst. Surgeon, Dr. George W. Yoemans Regimental Surgeon of the 23rd Pennsylvania Volunteers and 3rd brigade N.C.P. George was born in Pittsfield, Massachusetts on February 25th 1832. As a young man he attended medical school and had a Practice on Market Street at the Outbreak of the American Civil War. He was mustered in on August 30, 1862 most likely due to the large amount of casulties the 23rd sustained at Fair Oaks in which Dr. Roller needed assistance. He took ill after the Battle of Gettysburg and was discharged on a Surgeons certificate of Disability on March 18, 1863.He died on april 17th 1895 at the age of 63 and is buried at Laurel Hill Cemetery in Philadelphia in Section 18, Lot 171, Grave 1. Laurel Hill Cemetery in Philadelphia is a National Historical Landmark. I highly recommend them to anyone in the Philadelphia region who is considering plots for Loved ones and Family. they have a beautiful Cemetery, well kept and with an excellent Support Group, The Friends of Laurel Hill . They also have excellent Office and Maintnance/Groundskeeping Staff who are always extremely helpful.
