Hi, I am researching my 3x's ggrandfather, John Harvey Richardson (Richerson--as listed in 1900 Roger Mills County, OK census and on his tombstone in Sayre, OK)I recently found on Ancestry.com a listing for:
Richardson, John H.--CONF--
in Greer County, Oklahoma Territory on the Oklahoma 1890 Veterans Schedule index.
My John Harvey Richardson moved from Mobeetie, Wheeler County, Texas about 1882 and settled on Big Turkey Creek in Old Greer County (according to an Indian Pioneer Interview with his daughter-in-law obtained from the Oklahoma Indian Pioneer History Collection.)He later made the 1892 land run in Cheyenne Country.
I feel that the above listing is for my Confederate John Harvey Richardson (on his tombstone in Sayre-Doxey cemetary is "1861-1865 Deo Vindice--Civil War")My question is:
What information does the Oklahoma 1890 Veteran's schedule contain and where could I research it....would it be microfilmed in the LDS library?I would love to find any information I could about the service in the Civil War of my John Harvey Richardson! Thank you so much for your time! Alison Bigbee
