For those who might be interested SWMBO (my genealogist) continues to add to my Northern ancestors in WBS. Thus far:
- First Sergeant Sanford Erastus Bills – great grandfather – 5th Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry Regiment (the BloodyFifth)
- Private Ira Bills (his brother) 30th Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry Regiment
- Private John Fay (close collateral to the Langs. He came from Ireland with them in 1827) 9th New York Volunteer Cavalry Regiment. He was in the Army of the Potomac Cavalry Corps (Sheridan's command) He was in the massed mounted cavalry flank attacks at 3rd Winchester, Fisher's Hill and Cedar Creek. Oddly, Claude Devereux, the protagonist of STT, (my trilogy of novels) was depicted by me as having been in the charge at Cedar Creek. He was my great grandmother Lizzie Fay's uncle. John Fay was five foot, five inches tall. Perhaps that is why he ended up in the cavalry.
- Several Langs who were contract infantry regiment teamsters with the Army of the Cumberland. They were at Shiloh and ultimately in the March to the Sea. They were all drivers for the same regiment.
