Looking for info on the family of a Jonathan Boynton who was b. 6-23-1843 in Smyrna. His father was Jonathan Boynton and his mother, Luvan Loomis. Their farm was in the area known as the Bartlett neighborhood. Jonathan enlisted in the 157th NY Vol Inf. He was captured the first day at Gettysburg and spent time as a prisoner of war including Andersonville. I have the copy of a manuscript he wrote about his service and prison life. Any help would be appreciated. Lynne
