  • David, What relation are you to the Admiral? Are you also related to Shelby? Or to Henry S. Foote (born in Virginia, pre-war Mississippi Senator/Governor, Conf. Rep from Tennessee)? I've often wondered whether Shelby was related to either.. Shelby of course was from Mississippi, while Andrew was from Connecticut, although that doesn't mean anything, as for example my 19th century...

  • I found that to be very frustrating during my family research (which I was doing for an undergraduate course in ethnology and immigation at U of Pittsburgh in 1980) .. I still had several elders around especially on my father's side that knew a lot of family history, but they were unwilling to share it with me or anyone else .. one elderly aunt said "you might not like what you...

  • Charles, you probably have the same regimental history as I do (The Gallant Seventy-Eighth by Ron Gancas), but just in case I looked at the roster withion .. lots of guys with the "Mc" suffix, but no McComas .. I imagine their were lots of men that for whatever reason were not included on the roster (I also looked for possible misspellings, but no luck).. record keeping was likely...

  • Hello Dick and all: Dick, first I would like to thank you once again for publishing two of my articles online a few years ago .. I still refer to them often. I always hoped that I had relatives on both sides, and over the years I found to my great satisfaction that I did. On my mother's side, I had several relatives in the 78th Pennsylvania, probably all cousins .. the surname was...

  • I just found out that Jeff Shaara has a new historical fiction trilogy started, this one apparently taking place in the Western Theatre, as the first volume "Blaze of Glory" is based on Shiloh. It will be released May 29. I pre-ordered it. Should be a good read. Tom Gilbert

  • I just started reading "Shiloh 1862" released last week, by Winston Groom (author of "Forrest Gump") .. pretty good so far .. amazon review stated his style is much like that of Shelby Foote, ie narrative style with some but not too many footnotes. He earlier wrote one on Vicksburg and another on Franklin. Think I may read those too. Tom Gilbert

  • Don, I wrote an article a few years ago on the New Mexico Campaign .. I don't recall that I mentioned anything specifically about the 7th Texas, but if you'd like to take a look, my article is online: https://www.civilwarhome.com/confederatearizona.htm ... also it happens that I am a very distant relation to Richard Montgomery Gano (a cousin removed about a dozen times or more...
