Sue, I would have posted this on my previous message, but I think it would have gotten lost due to it's length.
I'm now trying to tidy up on what is known about Hiram Appleton and his folks etc. Do you by any chance know if Hiram was in the civil war? if so, I would appreciate any info you would have.
Also, I read somewhere that Hiram's father was a James A. Appleton and that he was in the Revolutionary War...but the birthdate for James I've found mentioned, says he wasborn near 1790. This would mean he would have been an infant or toddler during the Revolutionary War. is there a James Appleton Sr? George Zay GeoZay@aol.com
