Civil War Ancestors

Below is a list of individuals I’m related to who served in the Civil War.  Under each individual is a list of references to blog posts and documents related to that particular soldier.  It’s my hope and intention to add more soldiers and more documents as time goes on.  If you find anyone on this list who is also a relative of yours, I’d love to hear from you.  I’d also love to hear if you have any letters, diaries or documents of any kind related to these soldiers.  You can comment on this page or email me at if you have any comments or questions.

    I am very glad to run into your site. I am Cynthia Crossgrove Owens. My grandmother was Mary Howell Crossgrove, born in Ohio and a desendent of Marie Feree as well. I am wondering if you have ever researched earlier i her life in France for remainder of her lineage? I have no way to know where I fall in the family lines, and am mentioned as as descendent of Jacob Musser.
    I would be happy to stay in contact with you. Respectfully…

      Cynthia, in my family research I came across Mary Audrey Howell Crossgrove, born in Ohio. I also see how she is related to Jacob Musser. However, I do not see her connection to Marie Feree and France. I found information on findagrave for Mary Howell Crossgrove that I assume is your contribution. You also left very sweet remarks with your ancestors and I felt that I should try to connect with you. I didn’t know the best way to do that and in searching I found this comment you left. I thought it was worth a try to see if you knew how or wanted to share information. Thank you.
