Looking for the descendant of the Scoggin family who has the original letter written by Moses M. Buckner to his wife, Emeline Risinger, during the Civil War.
Would also like to find a copy of the last letter Emeline wrote to Moses in which she told of the birth of their youngest daughter, Moses Marah."Mosie" grew up near Nacogdoches, Texas, and married John Ab Scoggin/Scogin.(Her older sister Mollie married William Scoggin/Scogin.)
I am a descendant of Moses M. Buckner and Emeline Risinger through their younger son, Robert Garrett Buckner.I would be glad to give you a copy of the cover pages in Moses' Bible if you are interested.The letter from Moses was reprinted in the Nacogdoches newspaper about 25 years ago and later in a family history book, but I would very much like to get a photocopy of the original as there were at least two typographical errors in the printed version.
The letter from Emeline was last seen in the 1930s.No one I have talked to could say what became of it.
