Sarah or Almira Besemer of Mott's Corner, NY
I collect old documents and have purchased a letter from one sister to another - from Almira to her sister Sarah Besemer. The letter was written in Mott's Corner, NY and is dated July 17, 1864. Almira writes that she is concerned about her boys and also those of Sarah's being involved in the fighting during the Civil War, and hopes they will be safe. She also says that some would say there is no God in this war, but she thinks there is, and that some good will come if it, ultimately.
I am curious as to who these two sisters were, and if anyone has any information to share. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
