Hi John and Evelyn and all on this forum: I'm the same Paula with a different e-mail address. One goes to ivillage, one to erols. Unfortunately, this forum doesn't have the capability to change your own info, so you look like a different person if you change anything. Sorry for the confusion! Much further than I was at this point, but still looking for everyone's parents! I have copies of John's compiled military service records from the Union army. Very interesting, he was "caught behind enemy lines" about 9 months before Independence Lemarr's birth and went AWOL about the time of her birth, Surrendering soon after!
