Re: 131st. IL Inf. Yarbrough
Thanks so much!!! I did have some of the information but not all of it. I would gladly pay for documentation. I sent for pension files and civil war records over 20 years ago, and I assumed that John would have been married because of his age. There was very litte in his file. I received the most information on Britton and George. George's file listed him as being born in Stewart CO. TN also. Is it true unless you request a complete file they send you what they think is necessary? I did not ask for a complete file. I have been searching 30 years for records for this family. I have been told that the court house in Stewart CO.TN burned. They moved to Hardin CO. IL where the court house burned TWICE. I have checked every census record that I could. I found them in 1850 under "Zarbourn" in Williamson CO. IL. That took me ten years to find. In 1860 George,John,Britton are no where to be found. Their parents and Larkin are listed in Hardin CO.IL in 1860. I know the information is there somewhere, but I just have to find it. I was searching for a picture of the regiments at google when I found this site. My papers that I sent for are buried (poor filing on my part)somewhere. I did just find where Larkin B. died 23 JAN 1863 at Memphis Army Hospital. So it must be John C. that died at Young's Point LA. Would they have buried him there? Sent for the families to claim the body?
