Re: Footnote - Civil War Collection--Yay! Success!

Thanks so much for the reply, Ron! Guess I may have to "bite the bullet" and order the full packet. Thanks for the tip about putting both numbers on the form. I did check the Widow's Pension info on Footnote.com but no luck--but at least I know there IS info out there.

I have been so excited since discovering that this ancestor served in the CW a few weeks ago. It was entirely by accident since I had listed him as a brother to my grgr grandfather when I was just starting my research in the early 90's and had never looked into him. I have only recently started to venture from my most direct line into researching brothers and sisters of my great grandparents and grgr grandparents. I was quite surprised to see USCT come up in relation to my search as I had no inkling that anyone in my family had ever served in THAT war! My great grandfather (his nephew) was actually named after him and I had wondered why he had Manson as a middle name but never really looked into the connection. (DUH!) Thanks again for your suggestions! :)
