Col. Robert Bruce Clark
Just curious where you found the picture of Colonel Clark. I have an original hard coer copy of the 13th Regiment as well as the original copy of the regiment's march as written by his wife. If there are other photos you need please let me know.

Edwin F. Spofford
Hello Mike,

I am doing research on the Massachusetts State Police and their early years immediately after the civil war - 1865 to 1875
You posted a photo of Edwin F. Spofford, and I believe that he served for a short period of time 1869 to 1870.
I would like to use the photo you posted of him on Find A Grave

Thank you,

Ron Guilmette

Medal of Honor Recipients
Mike one more question, are you doing this for ONLY Civil War Service? I have photos of Bias, Byas and Byus family members that received Medal of Honor for WW II and would happily share those with you if you are interested?

Email me directly if you want photos

I will in the meantime review my records and if there any family servicemen that received this award and I do NOT happen to have photos of any of them, I will personally contact direct family members and attain photos of them in uniform if possible.

Thanks again

Lt. William Van Buren Bias PHOTO
Mike, where did you obtain this photo for memorial # 104295634?

I ask, as there are persons claiming that this photo is of Lt. William Alexander Byus. Both men were ministers, both men served in the WV 7th Calvary one was in Co B and the Other was in Co D and both men attained the rank of Leiut. So it is very confusing

I just need to know if you have this photo from your family or from a direct family member of Wiliam V B Bias.

I have 2 photos of men in uniform, one is Labeled so I know for sure who that is, but this photo is NOT LABELED and I need to known who it actually is.

I know this is a PAIN, but for historical accuracy I need to know. THANKS!

Noticed the photo on Hubert Dilger. What is the source please? As a member of the Medal of Honor Historical Society of the US, photos are also collected. Possibly you have a few we do not currently possess.

Please e-mail me.
