RE: Simeon DeWitt
Don, I have a copy of Ithaca Daily News, Sat., June 25, 1904, article titled: "REMAINS REMOVED TO THREE GRAVES" The dates are given. Would be glad to send it to you (PDF).

It tells that the body of Simeon DeWitt first rested by Cascadilla in Ithaca. I worked at Cornell University for a number of years in the 60s & 70s at which time I became familiar with Simeon and the Clinton House where he lived and worked. The Historical Society was housed there at that time (believe it still is--I'm in Florida now, so not sure)

Dave Crankshaw
former president of the Cortland County (NY) Genealogical Society and a DeWitt descendant (Simeon's first cousin was my ancestor).

James Ann Lee Dewitt
Would you know if her father was James E. Lee son of Grissom/Polly Lee?

This would be my g-g-g-grandparents.

I am trying to LINK the rest of the siblings

Transfer complete :) Would you like any of the others here at Olde Burial-Jaffrey? I also found some Witts up in Chesterfield, NH at the Center Cemetery.

RE: Dewitt research
The original 27th Mounted Inf started Apr/61 and they disbanded them Oct/61 "because of lack of organization" one doc. I read.. this is the "800" i am looking for. When they disbanded most of the men then joined other Regiments. most of them seem to have gone into the 7th MO Cav. or the 8th and this is what is written on their 27th muster cards. "also see under 7th MO S.M Cav." or 8th I have at least 4 that I can remember off the top of my head that say this..
Thanks again for your help.. I will pull up his muster card again on FOLD3 and make sure his does not say this, some did not but I found them on the other Rosters anyway.

RE: Dewitt research
that is wonderful and yes 2 heads are better than one... all I know about J. D DeWitt is what is on the muster card.. joined in Sedalia, May 25/61
for a 3 mos. term only and was in Co. K as Pvt.

My goal is to try to find all 701 men of the 27th on f-a-g... I am now on the Es... but I do do other things... my g-g-grandfather was Morrison M, Lee and I have the story of the regiment and his family on that name... I truly want to try to locate the general area of where the field hospital was Nov 5, 1861 Sedalia prairie, MO
the date my grampa died. and then place a memorial to the 27th and the 33 men who died of fever, measles etc, in the field hospital and were buried in a mass grave as UNKNOWN soldiers out there on the prairie. any help would be greatly appreciated at my email
