Samuel Davis Agin, who served two tours of duty in the Civil War, was recognized on Saturday, Sept. 29, in the Princeton (New Jersey) Cemetery, after having been buried there for nearly a hundred years in an unmarked grave. His story was brought to light by two distant cousins who discovered their common ancestor, and each other, through online research.
