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 family members who fought for the Confederate Army. 

In addition to direct ancestors, I will also list siblings of direct ancestors and spouses of siblings. 
I have added the family line the Civil War veteran can be found on if looking at my family tree.  They are listed for each of my great-grandparents lines: Martin, Weiss, Wilson, Hatfield, Baldwin, Stewart, Leffel, Box..  My trees at may have the pension records added for the veteran.

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

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 and not wanting to fight for the Confederates. So, although he did not die while in service, he died as a result of the war.
