I wonder how to go about inquiring about the Civil War Medal in the state of West Virginia. Would that mean that the person was from the state of West Virginia, or that he was fighting in the state of West Virginia when he received it. I know of two Charles Meddocks who were from the state of Minnesota.One was in the Civil War and never heard of again. My Great Grandfather, Charles Henry Meddock was born November 8, 1842 in Bradford, PA. He married Frances Reynolds October 24, 1867 in Fairbault, Minnesota. Thank You for all help and suggestions.
