Thanks !Time to dig again.
Oh yeah. But another pair of eyes never hurts
You are correct.
The first "red flag" for me ... was that a relative had transcribed and typed the records during the 1970s.
No doubt they ment well, but the same situation happened in my family.
It took us almost 35 years to find the real story (only because of typos and the lack of understanding how the Army issued numbers to various regiments and battalions)
But yes ... another pair of eyes never hurts.
