William L. Day
Hello Joy,

My name is Karl Jensen and I do research for the Medal of Honor Historical Society of the United States (MOHHSUS). One of the Society's goals is to find and document for US Government approval lost grave locations of Medal of Honor soldiers and sailors. I see online that your family tree includes a William L. Day from Kentucky. We have a missing William L. Day who served with the 5th US Cavalry and was born approx 1837 in Barren County, Kentucky. Your William L. Day is shown on the 1910 Federal census as being born in 1836 in Kentucky and had served in the "UA" in the column for Civil War service. Our William L. Day enlisted in the 5th US Cavalry in 1865 at the end of the Civil War. He had three enlistments in the 5th US Cav in total.

Do you have any solid documentation that ties your William L. Day to Barren County, KY? Any family documentation of military service that might tie him to the Medal of Honor soldier? Finally do you know when he died and where he is buried? Vina Day is widowed by 1920 so William must have died somewhere between 1910 and 1920.

Thank you for your help.

Best regards, Karl
