Re: LOUISIANA Confederate Lookups

In Reply to: LOUISIANA Confederate Lookups by Bill Hines of 18874

I am trying to determine what became of one of my ancestors who disappeared and was never heard from again. His last known destination was New Orleans in 1852. I am wondering if he might have served in the confederate army. He would have been in his sixties at the time of the war but I am trying to search down any possible lead. His name was Michael McKittrick. Here is the information I do know about him. Michael McKittrick was the second child of William McKittrick and Elizabeth Morrow McKittrick. Born 1798 in County Down Ireland. He emigrated to the U.S. and settled in Illinois. He was a trader. He also had a deformed foot. Michael left Troy, Illinois in 1852 on a trip to New Orleans and was never heard from again. Can his name be searched to see if he served in the war? Any other suggestions for finding out what became of him? Please email me.
