Jonathan Kreichbaum - Civil War Drum (Los Angeles)

Dear Kreichbaum/Kreighbaum family researchers, Please be aware that there is a Civil war era drum for sale on Los Angeles Craigs list that claims to be that carried by Jonathan Kreichbaum. The contents of the ad is pasted below. The photos in the ad show this information handwritten on the skin of the drum. I have NO way of knowing whether this is for real or not, but am researching my own ancestry and can only dream of finding such a family treasure if it is indeed for real and wanted to make its existence known to you. Here is the link:
