My great great Uncle, Horace Hall, Co. E, 1st Vermont Cavalry died on the morning of May 5, 1864 near Craig's Meeting House during the Battle of the Wilderness. Would dearly love to find a photo of him. Any help you can give is welcome.

I am just trying to find out anymore about my relatives-Asa F. Mather, my Great-Grandfather, Warren D. Mather and Emmett Mather, my Great-Great Uncles. All from Vermont and all were in the Civil War. Also, I am trying to find out more about the areas they lived: Fair Haven, Plymouth and Bridgewater VT. Also, any information about Warren Mather's widow, Ellen R. Mather (Nellie). She had an Uncle Johnson according to a letter Warren wrote to Nellie while he was at camp near Berryville VA. Just trying to get a better picture of their lives. Thanks!!

I am descended from Newton Murray Fay of Williston, VT. His two brothers served in Civil War from VT and are in the listings here, although Newton himself was too young to enlist. His brothers were Emerson C. Fay (Colby) who served in the 10th VT INF and died in 1864. He is buried at the Antietam National Cemetery in MD. Another brother, ROBY N. (Nathan) FAY served from Richmond, VT also in the 10th VT INF. He is listed as "whereabouts unknown" but I do have his burial information. He moved to Sacramento, CA with his brother, Newton Murray Fayafter the war, and they resided with each other as long as they both lived in Oakland and Sacramento, CA. Both ROBY N FAY and his brother, Newton Murray FAY are buried in the Masonic Cemetery in Sacramento, CA. Their only sister, Ada FAY was married to EDGAR BARBER (1837-1909)also a veteran from Richmond, VT who is buried at the Riverview Cemetery in Richmond, VT. E BARBER served in the 2nd VT INF.

Love this site. My Great-Great Grandfather was Joseph Robbins. He was the older brother of Anson Robbins. Believe he is related to many of the Robbins from Craftsbury since he was born there also.

Admin reply: Donald, thanks for signing the guestbook. I've sent you an email about the Robbins soldiers from Craftsbury.

I want to thank Tom Boudreau for his contributions to my Great -Uncle, Bryon D Matthews's information. It's interesting that he tented with several men of the Nash family. I'm most likely a distant relation to them on my Mother's family tree. Byron is on my father's side of the family.

THANK YOU! Your site is the best place we've found for accurate, concise compilation of relevant facts on Gen. George Stannard. It is so well put together that we are including the page on Gen. Stannard with our submission to VT Historical Preservation for a roadside marker. Our wording is not from your site, but other gatherings and endless examinations(strict limits on # of characters, words,etc.). Research on Stannard is okay for during War, but lacking before and after. I'm part of General George Stannard House Restoration Committee. We are awaiting Act 250 approval, and submitting Stannard for a Medal of Honor. Please check out our VT in the Civil War Heritage Trail on our web page. Thanks again, you are on inspiration.
