Thanks Jeff, I just joined the OFL this week . I am really looking forward to doing some addittional research. Warren had actually contacted me some years ago but life had other priorities. Mt sister and I recently came into possesion of what we believe was Martin's family bible. It list all the children an info about Martin serving in the Civil War . We will be glad to share Scans with other Family members . I Live in Richmond in the middle of where Martin served most of his time in war. I am working with the historian for NPS to Find precise Bivouc areas etc. I have also contacted some friends in nebraska and asked that they send mme a rubbing and Digital pic of his headstone.My Dad Robert knew nothing of his extended family. This has all been a treat for him. Keep in touch my email is CHASPOLIN@aol.com Thanks !!!!
