Please enter my thrice-great grandfather, William H Chadwick, of the 8th Illinois Cavalry, Company E, on your list. He is buried in the Corning, Nemaha County, Kansas cemetery. I have a picture of him and several of his cohorts at the 50th anniversary celebration of the battle at Gettysburg PA. I downloaded it from the 8thIllinoiscavalry.org site a few years ago but it no longer seems to be available there so I cannot connect my cousin with it. She wants to see the picture. I guess I will have to send her a copy of mine.
Thanks for doing this and for your interest in this Civil War outfit.

I wanted to let you know that on Sunday June 29th, St John UCC will be hosting Pioneer Day on church grounds from 9:30 to 4:00 including cemetery walks. I'm trying to get as many people with ties to the cemetery to attend. Were are digging deeper into the history of all the graves and need help from those tied to it. I can send you a pdf of the event info if you'd like.
I am specifically interested in the Menschings of Palatine, Ernst, my great grandfather bought his farm

RE: Chick Mensching
Your uncle was a hero to many. I knew him when he was retired and suffering from effects of years of mistreatment as WWII POW.
He almost died but recovered. Spoke at church of having to wait on heaven a little longer using Philippians 1:23-24 as his text. I'll never forget. His faith lives on as example to me.

Went to church in Oceanside California with Chick back in 1990-1. He is still an inspiration to me today.
Recently read "Unbroken" about POWs in the Pacific and thought of Chick again. Do you have any account or stories of those days for this American Hero?
