    My 2nd great grandfather was William McClellan Gilbert who was a private in Company E, 89th Infantry from Jay County, Indiana. Prior to this he was a farmer and served a full 3 years in the Civil War for the Union Army before being disbanded in August 1965 in Mobile, Alabama. He died in 1911 in Nebraska. I am interested in any pictures of this Company.

      Your great-grandfather may have known Hallet Bryan. I also wish I had some photos from this company. I only have the history that I learned from on-line. Thanks for writing!

    Probably so. Considering the amount of men who died from disease and gunshot wounds, it was astounding my great grandfather survived and lived to 74. Apparently the infantry walked from Indianapolis to Tennessee, Mississippi, Louisiana to fight and back. 20 miles a day. Please contact me if you run across any pictures and I’ll do the same. Thanks.

      Will do, and please remember me if you find any photos.

    After researching my family I am beginning my wife’s side of the family. John Armantrout (proper spelling) was her great-great-grandfather. He married Hannah (no maiden name yet) Armantrout. I have a photo of the two of them from 6 July 1919, and one of his headstone at Grave Hill Cemetery, west of Bryant, Indiana. We also have a large clock he supposedly carried home in a gunny sack from his time in the south, a gift for his soon-to-be bride. The date of the clock would work, but it was manufactured in Boston at a time it would have had to have made it through blockades of the south. I will send any further information I find.

      Thank you. Interesting information.
