In Reply to: STORMS> CIVIL WAR VET> PLAINWELL,MI by Lisa of 542

Hello Lisa,

Maybe I can help you with your J. Storms ancestor. I am doing research on the members of the 13th Michigan Infantry, and just yesterday I was in Gun Plain Township Hall, Plainwell, Allegan County, Michigan, researching burial plots for members of the 13th Michigan in Hillside Cemetery, so I can photograph the headstones. There is a William J. STORMS buried there, although I have not visited his gravesite yet http://ftp.rootsweb.com/pub/usgenweb/mi/allegan/gunplain/cemetery/h42301.txt.

I don't think there was a STORMS in the 18th Michigan http://users.rootsweb.com/~mihillsd/data/military/18thinfantry_l-z.html . Here is a roster of the 13th Michigan, showing William J. STORMS in Company A. http://www.michiganinthewar.org/infantry/13compa.htm

Here is the text about William J. STORMS from the 13th Michigan Infantry:
-------------
Enlisted in Company A, Thirteenth Infantry, as Corporal, October 23, 1861, at Prairieville, for 3 years, age 24. Mustered Januany 17, 1862. Re-enlisted January 18, 1864, at Chattanooga, Tenn. Mustered January 28, 1864. Sick at Chattanooga, Tenn., September 20, 1864. No further record.

----------------------------------------------------------
Where did you get the information he was discharged "on account of Insanity" ?

Lisa, if William is your ancestor, I'll email you a photo of his headstone if you would like. I hope to get that done in about a week.
