I am collecting information, artifacts, and stories about the members of the 208th Regiment Pennsylvania Volunteers; the 28th Regiment PVI, Company E; the 11th Regiment PVI, Company H; and the 4th Pennsylvania Cavalry, Company A (Civil War). Any and all information will be appreciated.
RE: 208th Pennsylvania Hi Joe, That is the information I written on Brazella from his record. Did we already contact one another? I don't see you on my record of people I have contacted. I will add some of his military record to his webpage for you. There are about 50 pages so I will just add the few that would be specific to him and his family.
208th Pennsylvania Hi Joe, Brazella Foor is my gr gr grandfather. What kind of information are you looking for on the 208Th Pennsylvania. I have his military record. Also could you please transfer his grave to me?
William Smith grave photo Hi there, I was in Pottsville today and looked for this grave to take a photo. Unfortunately, I could not find it. That cemetery is in very bad shape with more than half the stones overturned and many other unreadable. I left the request open - maybe someone else will be able to locate it? Sorry!
memorial # 24884413 Joe, I appreciate your setting up this memorial for Dennis Brislen. Just to add to your info, Dennis Brislen was the son of Timothy Brislen and Mary (Erskine) Brislen. He was born in Carbon County Pennsylvania in 1837. He died on April 1, 1865 in the Battle of Gravelly Run in Gravelly Run, Dinwiddie, Virginia. He was the brother of Mary (Breslin) Shovlin, Bridget Breslin, Robert Breslin and Giles Breslin. I am researching the Breslin family line as part of the Bernard Shovlin family line who lived in Carbon and Schuylkill County Pennsylvania. Bernard was married to Mary Breslin, Dennis' sister. Great job on establishing the memorial, even if Dennis was moved to the Poplar Grove National Cemetery, near where he died. I am also contacting them to offer the information.
