    Hi,

    My great great grandfather was in the civil war, but I am more interested in finding information on my husband's g-g-grandfather, Alexander Wilbur. He died in Duvall's Bluff and was buried somewhere there. We would also like to find his grave. His widow, Ann Wilbur, settled in Kansas after he died with her two sons and two daughters. She had also lost two other sons in the war.

    I think Alexander joined in Michigan as a Union soldier.
