I am seeking any males age 6 or older who have either (A) a direct, blood-related ancestor who fought for the Union in the Civil War or (B) a direct, blood-related ancestor whose BROTHER fought for the Union in the Civil War. I am work- ing to form a local chapter of the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War in Vinton County. This organization is chartered by Congress and was formed in in 1881. Wilkes- ville at one time had a chapter of the organization. The purposes are to educate the members and the public on the service and sacrificies of Union soldiers and sailors; preserve Civil War battlefields, monuments, and artifacts; to catalogue and mark graves of Union veterans; to promote patriotism. Ohio currently has 20 chapters with chapters in Middleport, Athens, Chillicothe, etc. Contact: Keith D. Ashley, 34465 Crew Road, Pomeroy, OH 45769-9715 (E: kdashley2@hotmail.com)
