Laura;

Thanks for thinking of me and my "brick wall".

Unfortunately, the James Casner on the 1890 Veterans Census is different from the one on the 1870 OR census.

The one on the 1870 OR Census is my guy, but the one on the 1890 Veterans Census served from OH and had a wife by a different time - I have the papers filed away somewhere.
The one on the 1870 OR census did serve in the Indian Wars.

My feeling is that the spelling of the name morphed into something else (many of the Casner/Carsner names did). I keep hoping he left descendants and eventually one will read one of the messages.

I have been looking for the final resting place of his mother since the late 1980s. Low and behold, I finally.............located it last month and now have some wonderful photos of it. Who knows maybe after 10-15 years of searching for James, he will be found.
