|My interest began years ago when I found a small piece of paper from the War Department - Adjutant Generals Office concerning a JOHN TILSON, in response to an apparent inquiry as to his whereabouts, dated October 4, 1864.The response was that this soldier, JOHN TILSON CO A, 119TH REGIMENT, NY VOLUNTEERS, was missing since July 1863.It wasn't until several years ago I discovered he was my Maternal great, great, great grandfather!!! He did come home!!!|
I've gotten records from Washington, DC for his service and pension, which included a great deal of info on his immediate family.Most of the immediate family are from the New Jersey/New York area.I am searching for the following names:
TILSON,DESANTO,LOW,WHITE,MCKEAN/MCKEON,BROWN, AND REIMER and I'm willing to share.
