Union or Confederate?
Regarding Corp John B. Miller mem #357995017 in Miller Cem, Manistee Co MI, are you sure he served in the 2nd Missouri Light Artillery? That regiment was on the Confedeate side. Records show a John Miller that enlisted in the 2nd Michigan Light Artillery, Battery C in Grand Rapids at the age of 18.

Louis (Louise) Lloyd # 58682628
I read your instructions after sending the edits for Louis. Louis is actually Louise. She married Herbert S. Lloyd on 9-5-1950 in Rapid City, Kalkaska, MI. Her last name was Bennett at the time. I am not sure if Bennett was her maiden name yet, or not. Given their ages at the time, she may have been wed previously. I am related to Herbert Lloyd. My member # is 47353336. Have a good day.
Thank you,
