Stan Busken had always heard his family speak well of his maternal great-grandfather, August Emile Feltz. When Busken learned Feltz fought as a Union soldier in the Civil War, it only spurred on his interest.
“Who was he and where is he?” he asked. “Where’s he buried?”
Busken, 64 of Liberty, has spent more than 30 years doing family genealogy research. In that time, he learned a great deal about Feltz, including that his relative was buried at the Fulton State Hospital Cemetery in 1901.
