John E Black - Private   
I am not so sure this is my relative but he has the same name, is from the same place, and got a headstone at Chartier's Cemetery where he used to live. Even if he's not related, I feel honored to mention him here. None of the books that mention my relative mention the war, so I am not sure about it. There was mention of a John Bowers who died in the Civil War from PA but his wife's name was not the same.
