Hi Davis, You and I are related! Samuel David Bottom was my great, great grandfather. I have a copy of his and Henrietta Gardner's marriage certificate. Samuel came to Baltimore after the war and remarried. I am his great, great granddaughter from his second marriage. I have all the info you could want on him including a picture. I really want to hear more about your grandfather! e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org We really need to get together!
