Dear Gary, How exciting!Which relative is it?My great grandfather, Capt. George Fouratt? or perhaps it was his uncle Col. Enos Fouratt, incidentally my g grandfather was only 2 years younger than Col. Enos Fouratt.You have, probably the same information that I have, in my genealogy book of the Faurot (Fouratt) Family.
Reading his obituary from the New Brunswick Times, July 23, 1888 certainly points to him as your subject & to a very gallent solider.So I am guessing that you are playing his part. It would be very difficult to play the part of a Steamboat Capt. ( hauling troops up & down the rivers) unless he was in a fight.
I will take a look at your site.Thanks for letting me know about this exciting event.I will share it with my sister.Since we have lived in the south most of our lives we do not know any of the current living members of this family.
