Hi Ellen, Thanks again for the info. I will send in a request for Daniels Cvil war record. But, you must either be a member of, or have access to a database that I cannot access. I tried searching for Daniel's Civil War record, with no luck. But, armed with the knowledge you gave me about him being in the 34th regiment, I just searched for that regiment and found him. It looks like it will cost $75 to get the record, so I may have to wait a few weeks. Also, the Archibald G. Loomis I posted the query about, had a daughter, Madeleine Seymour Loomis, who wrote several reference books about braille. I have an old picture with Archibald holding Madeleine when she was 9 months old.
