Need help from the GAR

Need help from the GAR

Surnames: McComb
The GAR has a section in the Allegheny Cemetery where veterans of the Civil War are
buried. I believe that one of the solders buried there is my great grand father (John
McComb, Solders Lot, Stone 216). The cemetery has a historical group. I contacted
them and was told that they have information on other burials, but none on the GAR
section. Can anyone tell me how to contact the GAR to find out if they have any
information?
