It is such a joy to have meet you through the Cobb County Round Table. You have found information for my daughter, Karen Hinton, and the joy this gave her about her father's family is just marvelous. Also the extra step and taking her to the actual spot where Franklin was wounded--just awesome.

Brad is so helpful and kind, and what a fantastic memory. He found my Great Great Great Uncle that was mortally wounded 5 miles from the home I have lived in for 30 years. I live near Kennesaw Mountain and my Uncle fought for the 125th Ill in the Civil War. He obtained a copy of his diary and his photo. He also took me to the place he was shot and the first two field hospitals he was sent to. Before this, I didn't know I had a relative who served in the war. I am so happy with all of Brad's efforts. Thank you Brad.

Thanks for your email in regards to my ad in Civil War News looking for information about CW soldiers from Elkhart County Indiana. I live 8 miles from Antietam and 6 miles from Harpers Ferry and spend some free time digging up the CW past in this area on approved sites.. I will be back when I have more time. I like your info here - good job!

My husband and I were in Atlanta for Bands of America, in October. Our grandsons school from Grain Valley, Missouri was practicing at Kennesaw high school. We spent the afternoon at Kennesaw Mountain touring the different areas of the civil war battles.
My 1st cousin twice removed Benjamin Webb Baker was in the 3rd division, 1st brigade, 25th Illinois - Colonel Richard H. Nodine. Webb fought in a number of major engagements, including Pea Ridge, Arkansas; perryville, Kentucky (where his brother John was killed); Stone River, Tennessee; Chickamauga, Georgia; and on Sherman's march to Atlanta.
My cousin Benson Bobrick wrote a book titled "Testament", A Soldier's Story Of The Civil War. In the book their are 90 letters written to his mother Sarah Adams Baker (my great aunt), and Webb's grandparents (my 2nd great grandparents John Quincy Adams and Susannah Webb Adams).
Webb's brother John was killed in the battle of Perryville, Kentucky, October 8, 1862. John Baker was burried where he fell but late in the fall of 1862 his remains were returned to Hutton, Illinois and buried in Hurricane cemetery near his hometown of Hutton.
I wish we would have had more time to spend at Kennesaw and the surrounding area but hope to return someday to see more of the area.
