Hi Ms Brown, If you are still doing this incredible favor, at your convenience, may I ask you to look for a marriage record too? This marriage should have occurred in the latter part of 1858 or early in 1859 as the only child was born Jan 1860.
The bride is said to be Amanda Elmira [BARKER] b.abt 1845. The groom's last name is ANDERSON and said to be "John G." and if so he was born abt 1834 and killed in the war 1862.
I have not been able to find anything but "circumstantial evidence" of this marriage and that's not much of a legacy to leave to the only child of a Civil War soldier.
My heartfelt thanks if you can do me this favor, Kathye [Payne] Upham
