  1. I am enjoying reading these posts very much! I love family history. It doesn’t matter to me if it is mine or someone else’s. It is all an adventure to read. 🙂

    I am a bit confused about something you said in your post. You said, “At the end of the war he brought his family to Missouri in 1862.” I am confused because the war ended in 1865. Or, is 1862 when he was discharged from service?

    Have a blessed day!
