Thank you so VERY, VERY much.I did not have the information on Eliza McJunkin, so that's a bonus!
Through which of Tom's children do you descend?
John Robert Mince was my step-grandfather.My aunt on my mother's side married John R. Mince's son, Ralph I. Mince, and my uncle on my mother's side married a daughter of John R. Mince, sister to Ralph.I know it's confusing! So while I'm not blood kin, I am interested in the genealogy for my cousins' sakes.
I appreciate the information on Thomas Wesley Mince's military history.I have a copy of some of the muster rolls where he enlisted and then was missing, and I knew he was at Pea Patch Island as a prisoner.Some day I want to go there and see it.
It's late here (Virginia), and I have to get to bed to get ready for work tomorrow.I'll print what you sent, and I can't thank you enough for replying.
