Re: Daniel Benfer in Civil War company k
Could you please provide more information concerning your Daniel Benfer and the facgt that he was a mail carrier and was captured during the civil war?
I have been researching the civil war history of Daniel Benfer and there seems to be some confusion at the National Archives as to Daniel's service.
While the Pennsylvania historical society; Historical Data System,and Bates have Daniel listed as serving as a private in Co. K, 51st PA Infantry, the Archives only has a David Benfer as serving in Co. K, PA Infantry.
Hoping you can help me solve this riddle.
