Okay, I don't have enough time as it is and now I'm off on another tangent! It may be a while before the basement rooms get finished. Looking forward to the pictures. I bought two books on the Civil War last year at a garage sale (buck each) that were printed in 1922? Need to get them out. I just had to 'Google"Lt. Col. D.W. Magee and found this: "In February, 1864, the Regiment joined in a reconnoissance [sic], going as far as Buzzard Roost, where it took part in the engagement of that name, losing one killed and seven wounded. Then returned to camp where it stayed until March 6, when marched to Lee's and Gordon's Mills; (here on account of sickness Lieutenant Colonel D. W. Magee resigned, and Major Allen L. Fahnestock was commissioned as Lieutenant Colonel, and Captain J. F. Thomas as Major.) Stayed there till May 3, then marched to Ringgold, where General Sherman was concentrating his grand army for the march upon Atlanta; left Ringgold on the 5th, and arrived at Tunnel Hill the 7th." History of Eighty-Sixth (86th) Illinois Infantry The town of Lancaster they refer to is about 4 miles Northwest of Glasford and today consists of the Lancaster Cemetery and about 5 houses. Lancaster was one of the earliest settlements and as the railroad moved so did the residents with most ending up in Glasford. My Grandparents and other family members are buried there and if I remember correctly one of the oldest headstones is of someone who was born in the 1760's. ps: "Also since Biak is my buddy", that's one of the finest compliments I have received!
