Re: Daniel Graham Civil War Service - Butler Co PA

In Reply to: Daniel Graham Civil War Service - Butler Co PA by Nancy Evans of 1337

There are Civil War records to prove that your Daniel Graham did not die during his service in the Union Army. His service record provides that he entered the war as a private on 21 Sept 1861 and after being wounded was given a disability discharge on 18 Aug 1862. He was discharged as a corporal. There may be other records; most likely a pension was provided in later years.

In this same area of Butler County, PA there were 3 other Daniel Grahams, all married and all fatally wounded during the war. The names of the wives were Amelia, Margaret and Bridget. Is there a possibility that one of them is your relative and not the first mentioned Daniel Graham?
