My step great grandmother was made an honorary member of the Washington Artillery. I have the paper signed Augusta GA May 31st 1860 that gives her name as Louisa Maria Martha Washington Krauch. It states her name was received and enrolled on their Books as an Honorary Member of the Corps. It says "You are therefore Exempt from all ordinary Militia duty, for the term of twelve months from the date hereof. It is signed by I.P Girardey, Captain and Joe (I think) C. Kalthoff, Secretary. Could she have been enrolled shortly after her birth? Might her father have been a member of the Artillery? She married my great-grandfather in 1878 or 1879.
I know nothing about her other than she married my great-grandfather after my great-grandmother died after giving birth to my grandfather in 18 78. I think they were probably married in 1878 or early 1879. They lived in the area around Ste. Genevieve, MO. My great grandfather had a grist mill. I don't know if her family had come to MO perhaps after the war but Krauch is a last name that is somewhat common in the St. Francois County area. I haven't checked the census to see if she might be listed for 1870 in Missouri.
I know nothing about the Washington Artillery other than what I read in the post. I can scan and send a PDF of the paper.
