The information was gleemed from the web site "Fold-3", of which I am a paying member. His discharge paper state that he was 18 years old at the time of discharge in Springfield, Illinois. It also states that he was 5'9" with a dark complexion and blue eyes. He was discharged Sept 4, 1865. The document was certified by his company commander, Capt. John Lowells. If you send me your regular email address I will forward you a copy of his discharge. If you look at his picture, he does appear to be of a short stature and lean.

Just came across your information (on the findagrave-site) about the above mentioned private. I´d like to fill in the information which answers the relationship questions you had.
Charles J.F. Evendorff (or in Swedish records: Karl Johan Fredrik IVENDORFF) was born in BOSTON - as you mentioned - on June 24, 1840. His father was Carl Christopher IVENDORFF, who was born Febr 17, 1793 in Bernå province, close to the city of Åbo (Turku) in Finlamd. His mother was Anna Maria LÅNG (the letter "a" with a dot, should be pronounced like the word "fought" when you exclude the first F and the last T - "Lång" means the same as the English word Long. The family returned to Sweden from Boston about 1842 and settled in her hometown i.e Sölvesborg in the province of Blekinge in the south of Sweden. C.C. Ivendorff died here on May 26, 1845. They had met Fredrik Sparrström in Boston and he returned to Sweden with them and later married (1850) the widow Anna Maria Lång. So he thus became the stepfather of Charles J.F. Evendorff. Sometimes around his marriage to Anna Maria Lång ,he started to call himself Sparreström instead of Sparrström. There is an interesting reason for that change but it would take too much time/space to explain. Charles had married Anna Christina Jansson, who was born april 20, 1838 in the village "Lugnås" also located in the Västra Götaland province in Sweden.
Hope the above clarifies the situation somewhat. I have written about the Sparreström Family in my book "Tack, General!" which deals with the life and adventures of the then Captain of 2nd illinois Light Artillery Battery, who became a Brigadier General (under Major General John A. Logan) and was called Carlos J. Stolbrand. The book has 422 pages but in Swedish.
All good wishes

Hi Patrick ... I have checked my Oakwood Cemetery book (published in 2007) and do not find an entry for Mr. Fortenberry. Do you have a way to confirm the cemetery? Or, perhaps the person is in an unmarked grave.
|Karen Garst||Samuel S Garst|
What a great service that you have given by taking photos of these graves. My husband, Ron Garst, is Samuel S. Garst's grandson. We live in Oregon. I have been working on our genealogy for two years and have just found this website.
The Portrait and Biographical Record of Macouplin County Illinois - 1891 has a nice story about Samuel and his wife. It states that he volunteered in 1861 and was in Andersonville prison. On his first two escapes, he was captured but he managed to escape for good on this third attempt. I have a picture of him with members of G. A. R.

|Mike Meyer||RE: PVT Milton B. Dunton|
Photo of Milton Boyd Dunton was received from a cousin in Iowa. Milton was our great-grandfather. There are several other photos of Milton including one from an Omaha newspaper in 1921 that included 4 or 5 other Civil War Vet's. Will post the other photos on Milton's Find-A-Grave soon. Milton was born in Indiana, enlisted in Illinois, married in Indiana in 1870 and homesteaded to Nebraska in 1870, living in Crete, Lincoln, and finally Omaha.
