Stories

William is listed in the widow's pension records of Fold 3. There you will see proof of service, his marriage record, and multiple papers saying he died of measles. Most of the records though center on his wife and children. Wm. and Caroline had 3 children, Albert , b. 30 August 1860, Ida b. 23 Feb 1862 and later married a Mr. Shyrer, and Rilie Anna or Rileianna b. 13 May 1863. Poor William never saw this baby as he had died before she was born. The pension also shows that the widow Caroline married for a 2nd time to George N. Arterbern in Livingston County, IL on 2 Nov. 1869. They moved to Butler County, Kansas. After George died around 1889, Caroline is able once again to apply for a pension. She died ca 1907.
