I am the GGGrandson of Frank H Foote. He wrote often of the War in the National Tribune in the 1880's. One of his articles captured the attention of Capt. Northrup. As a consequence and over a few years time they were able to return Capt. JH Duncans surrendered sword from the Battle of Ft Gregg to his Brother Capt. RR Duncan in Culpeper Va. Capt. Northrup's Nephew Dr. Ira Livermore ended up with the war diary of Northrup and corresponded with my relative. I am trying to locate the families involved to locate the dairy and any surviving letters from Pvt. Foote. I have some information on Livermores kids but have never traced geneolgy, especially difficult I hear since he had daughters and they went west. Sure could use some help or a connection or advice or somebody I can share the rest of this with to get me started. Thank you.
