Perhaps he used the other spelling of the surname?
I've seen the name spelled several different ways:
Fenimore, Fennimore & Finmere. I'm sure there are other spellings as well.
On the following URL under the surname Fenimore:
There is a George J. Fenimore who died on the 21st Aug 1906, interred: Sec B, Lot 38, Blk 4, Grave 1, Odd Fellows Cemetery, Burlington, Burlington Co., New Jersey
The note attached to this record reads as follows:
Of Beverly, born in 1834. Civil War Veteran, Private Co.C 112th PA. H.A., enlisted 2/17/1864, discharged 1/29/1865.
The note caught my attention as the 112th holds two numbers. It is Also known as the 2nd Pa. Heavy Artillery &
it was split into another unit which was the 2nd Pa. Provisional Heavy Artillery. My GG-GF Edward Tonkins Shinn
was also in Co. C of this unit, as well as reenlisted on the same day. Until the split when he was moved to Co. H
of the Provisional unit and made a Corporal.
