After my father was buried in a small cemetery outside Auburn,IL, in 1934, they came to decorate the graves of the vets of this war, and they had his name-Samuel Edward Liedabrand of Sangamon County, IL. The caretaker of the cemetery was a personal friend and told them my dad was not a vet, but they insisted that he had served. Does anyone know how to verify this? Any help will be appreciated.
