1) The DOD on his military gravestone is 1910, which is in obvious conflict with the dates on the above death notices; and with the Iowa Death Certificate database.

2) His wife, Catherine 'Kate' (Smith) Ingles Irish, died just a few days after his death. She is also buried in the Brookshier cemetery but apparently has no gravestone. She may be buried next to her 1st husband Benjamin Ingles (also a CW soldier).
