Headstones for Veterans Database at Ancestry.com

Juliana Smith at Ancestry.com's blog posted a "Tip from the Pros" from me that focused on databases (or books) that have titles that are not completely accurate. This card for a War of 1812 veteran appears in a Civil War database.
It pays to look around and browse, sometimes even if you think you are in the wrong place.
Those interested in the tip can view it on the Ancestry.com blog.
In this case, I think the stone is actually gone now. Fortunately the Greenmound cemetery in Keithsburg is far removed from the Mississippi River.
