Jacob Harker
Thanks for all the information you've worked so hard to share. I see there is a son of Jacob and Catherine named Jacob on your post. However, down the list of children there is no mention of him. Do you know anything about him?

I sent you a copy of the compiled service records that I have on file for Otey, to your private email address.

RE: Thomas J. Prosser

I do not have any portraits of Otey. The only ones that I've seen associated with him are the portraits on his FindAGrave memorial page, but those portraits are almost certainly not Otey.... Instead, they appear to be portraits of the Marquis de Lafayette. (The regiment Otey served in did leave Valley Forge as part of Lafayette's Division in May/June of 1778.) One of those portraits can be found on the Wikipedia page for Lafayette as a depiction of the marquis (see,_Marquis_de_Lafayette).

Otey's service records suggest he never rose above the rank of private, so he wouldn't have worn the uniforms depicted in the portraits on the Find A Grave memorial page.

Hi Beverly.

The inscription on Thomas J Prosser's stone reads:

"Thomas J. Prosser
Born Feb. 14, 1869,
Died Aug. 28,1894.
Behold the pilgrim as he lies.
With glory in his view:
To heaven he lifts his longing eyes.
And bids the world adieu."

You and I are indeed related: Otey Prosser was my ggggg-grandfather. I am descended from him through son, Jesse (who appears to have been Otey's eldest). Nice to meet you!

RE: George B. Nail, Co. K, 86th Illinois
Hello Beverly!! Incidentally, my middle name is Beverly, which was a very popular name for boys in the deep south from the 1850's well into the 1920's and 1930's.
As for the picture of George Nail in uniform. Without see yours, I don't know. Would you take a look at George's site when you get a chance and see if it is the same picture? If it is not, I would love to see you add it to his site or if that is not possible, send a scan on to me. Thanks, Baxter

Beverly, I say your note to your uncle George. Is it possible you have or know of pictures of your uncle George or especially any pictures of his father, George B. Nail? I have the young picture of George B. Nail, but would enjoy seeing others of him, even as an older gentleman. Let me know if you can help. Sincerely, Baxter

I was wondering if you would remove the photo of my father that you added to his memorial. I have something else planned.
