North and South

Since today is Veterans Day, I though I would try to list our Civil War Veterans.  We have family members who fought for the Union and for the Confederate Army.

In addition to direct ancestors, I will also list siblings of direct ancestors as I find them.

(Name, State served from, pension Yes/No, Federal pension if Union or state pension if Confederate.)

Union Army
Leonard D. Hatfield, Iowa, Y, Federal pension
Joel Leffel, Ohio, y-widows pension, Died during war
Gottlieb Weiss, Illinois,
Daniel S. Coddington, Missouri, Y, Federal pension  (5 sons also fought in Civil War)
Andrew McNeil, Indiana, Y-widows pension, Died during war
Levi Taylor Ball, Indiana, Y, Federal Pension
Nathaniel McNeil, Indiana, Y, Federal pension
Henry R. Stewart, Tennessee, Y, Federal pension
Jacob M. Stewart, Tennessee, Y, Federal pension

Confederate Army

Fields Hoff, Texas, Y, Texas pension
Richard Huff, Texas, Y, Texas pension
William Riley Medlin, Tennessee, Y, Tennessee pension

Go to the National Parks Service website, Civil War Soldiers and Sailors System, to find your Civil War Ancestor:

Let us not forget our grandpa, David Miller Leffel, who was hanged during the Civil War in the Great Hanging at Gainesville, Texas 1862.  His crime -- having Union sympathies in Confederate Texas. So, although he did not die while in service, he died as a result of the war.
