While a number of people have searched for years for the grave of Raynham Civil War soldier Frederick C. Anderson, a Pawtucket, R.I., man found it in just six months. Anderson was a farmer who received the Medal of Honor after heroically capturing an enemy battle flag and its bearer in 1864.
For years, history buffs were unable to locate his grave, which was believed to be in Somerville. But last week it was uncovered in Dighton, thanks to Charles Mogayzel, an 80-year-old Korean War veteran.
