Farmer, father of six and grandpa of four, with one on the way. Still reside on the family farm in Northwest Missouri. Have two Union ancestors, a GG Gpa who fought with the 34th Iowa Infty and a G Gpa who fought with the 102nd Ohio Infty, was captured and imprisoned at Cahaba and was one of the survivors of the Sultana disaster. Have several GG Gpas and GG Uncles who fought with the Confederacy, all from Virginia and North Carolina. So far have been unable to identify any family who fought with the famous Missouri Brigades. Have been reading on the War Between the States for many years and only recently found this website. Honestly, the main reason I joined was to reach out to @Booner after I read his introductory post. We appear to share a GGG Gpa.
