Please let me know if you find his grave, and if you do can you send me a photo? I found his wife's, Elizabeth's death certificate online, but not his. She is buried in Paris. A while back someone from Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness tried to help but couldn't find anything.
He was listed in the 81st as John Dryde or Driet. The 1890 Vet Census has him saying when he enlisted they got his name wrong because he could not understand English. He was wounded in the neck & arm. I don't know when or where. Stated he was a sailor when he enlisted. He appiled for a pension, but didn't receive one. His widow appiled for one also, and also didn't receive one. Either they thought he was not disabled from his wounds, or there may be some other reason.
Please let me know how you make out. My e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org
