Family Genealogy
Friday, November 24, 2006
 

I am going to make a change in my approach to my family's history. Up to this point I have concentrated on individual ancestors. Now I think I will ramble on about points of interest (at least what I think are interesting) relating to my ancestors.

The Civil War is always a good place to start. I did not have any direct ancestors (g-grandparents, gg-grandparents, ggg-grandparents, etc.) participate in the Civil War but three of them did have siblings fight in the war, all on the Union side. My gg-grandmother, Beulah Weinhart, had three brothers, whose last name was Fish, fight with Iowa regiments. They all came back alive. My g-grandfather Erick Gunhus had a brother Christian Gunhus fight with a Wisconsin regiment. He died of disease. My ggg-grandmother Mary Burgess Carson Young had two brothers and a brother-in-law fight on the Union side. The two brothers fought with a Indiana regiment. One brother died in battle and the other died of disease. The brother-in-law was a member of a Iowa regiment and he also died of disease days after returning home. The picture shows you the dates that James C. Young and John L. Young (name is given but is for the individual below James C. Young) died in battle.
