Victor,

Those headstones must be part of the Ft Mills cemetery.  I looked up all 3 in Ancestry.com and Marcelino Montalbo was buried in the Ft Mills cemetery on 3 March 1930.  I couldn't find a burial listing on the other two.    I think someone should investigate this to find where the bodies are.  Or maybe someone knows about this.  During WW II maybe sometlhing happened to these three and their original burial place.  But Marcedlno has a burial place in Ft Mills cemetery, it is Section West, Site 43.  Couldn't find the other two, but if there are records they should be searched.

Regards,

Tom McGeeney

More Information on the tombstones.  I found burial records for the other two.  All members of the 91st Coast Artillery, PS.  1st Sgt Bautista and Cpl Montalbo were in Battery E, Pvt Gonzales was in Battery B.  Wasn't Battery E stationed on Ft Drum?  I didn't find a location for 1st Sgt Bautista but Cpl Montalbo and Pvt Gonzales were in the West section.  Pvt Gonzales site 34, Cpl Montalbo site 43.  Maybe someone else has some more information on where the bodies are.  A check of the cemetery might turn them up with new tombstones.
