States: Pennsylvania: Lackawanna
My grandmother used to tell me that she had an Uncle who served in the Civil War and was at Gettysburg. I have never been able to place any of her relatives at Gettysburg, but recently found a record of the enlistment of one 19-year old Henry Kennedy on July 1, 1863, at Carbondale, PA. He was mustered into service on July 3, 1863, at Harrisburg, PA, which is not that far from Gettysburg, which battle was fought July 1-3, 1863. One of my grandmother's uncles was a Henry Kennedy, who was living in Carbondale at the time of the Civil War.
Does anyone else have a Henry Kennedy from Carbondale, PA, who served in the Army during the Civil War in their line? If so, I would like to hear from you for a possible exchange of family information.
