One of the oldest commemorative markers at the Stoutsburg Cemetery is that of Pvt. William Stives (1760-1839), a Revolutionary War soldier who served with the 3rd New Jersey Regiment as a fifer and wintered with General Washington in Valley Forge. The Stoutsburg Cemetery also has ten documented Civil War Veterans who trained at Camp William Penn and served in the 24th, 41st, 45th, and 12th U.S. Colored Troop Regiments. These soldiers, in particular the 41st and 127th Regiments along with other union forces, helped capture Petersburg and joined in the chase after Lee’s retreating army. At Appomattox Court House five Camp William Penn Regiments (the 8th, 41st, 43rd and 127th) were represented to witness the surrender of Lee’s army to General Grant.
