Harrisburg District Library Genealogy Librarian Sherry Hinant has identified the Civil War Veterans in a photo that will go on display at the Illinois State Museum along with a Civil War anniversary quilt.
Several people called her and identified their ancestor in the photo, which confirmed the handwritten names on the back of another copy of the photo Robin Ramsey Haney brought her. Haney had the exact same photo, in slightly better condition with handwritten names on the back identifying the men.
Hinant would still like to know the when, where or why regarding the occasion the photo was taken along with information on the Harrisburg Grand Army of the Republic post.
Anyone with that information may contact Hinant at the library at (618) 253-7455 or e-mail email@example.com.
