Lazzelle had resided in Arkansas City many years.He was an old soldier and his body will be interred in the G.A.R. lot in Riverview
From Jim Goodin:
The Duke's service is for the Indian Wars - not civil war.He and GreatGrandpa
James Williams went to "The Battle of the Washita" to join Custer.A November
snow storm delayed them and they arrived too late.This gave both men service
in the Indian Wars.I have a picture of James in the "Old Soldiers Home" in
Oklahoma City wearing his badge.I bought a replica on Ebay.
GOOGLE :"THE LAZZELL FAMILY, Julia Lazzell, of section 22"
This stunned me when I found it a few months back.Julia says, "when he went,
in 1856, to Kansas," and "and was connected with the Kansas military companies
and saw much service on the plains of the great west, as well as in the Civil War."
And, "He was one of a family of fourteen children, four of whom became soldiers
in the Civil War."These were Tom, Duke, William, and John.As you can see,
they appear to have been a package deal and that is what I am currently working.
In Kansas, there were mostly paramilitary groups with a scattering of "official"
military units who left permanent records.I do not know when Civil War pensions
became available, but Tom never got one.
I am going to see if I can find "someone" connected to the Family who may have
escorted the Boys to Kansas.
