Re: Bennie can you help with this?


Following Henry Thompsons born in Virginia and listed on the Civil War Soldiers and Sailors System database. The records are part of Record Group 24, Records of the Bureau of Naval Personnel, at the National Archives, Washington, D.C.

There is no Henry C. Thompson listed. According to the year of birth (1854) listed on the posted message Henry C. apparently enlisted sometime after the Civil War since he was only 11 years old in 1865. I am not sure whether post Civil War records are located at the National Archives or a Naval repository.
