Thank you for filling in yet another gap. We just returned from Illinois, but unfortunately Hardin county was too far away from where we were to make it there this weekend.
BTW- The Civil War site says that John was mustered in May 18, 1864 and out November 5, 1865. According to census records and his obit, that means he was only 15 when he enlisted, but according to his enlistment record, he was 19. I realize that many young men did this, and that both sides were desperate for soldiers, but my modern views towards war finds this astounding! He also went all the way to New Hampshire to enlist at this time.
