Lillie was a Pioneer before her time regarding Genealogy. She researched her Family History and stories passed down to generations that she had located Civil War connections to our family and beyond. I so wish she had kept documentations of such to pass down to her children for them to have held to them to keep for us now. But, that information was not documented to pass on to her children and their children.
