Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Southwest Connecticut, and am trying to memorialize and identify local Civil War veterans. Particularly interested in the 17th Regiment, Connecticut Volunteer Infantry.

Thanks to all the members who have helped by creating memorials, providing information, or taking photographs. I especially want to thank members Marsha Mitchell and RobM who have contributed immensely to the project, including documentary research, grave searching, correcting errors and great enthusiasm and more.

Visit the 17th Regiment blog for stories, letters, photos and much else:

RE: Col. Jack Lapham
Thank you Bob. I appreciate you taking the time to photograph Col. Lapham's headstone. My grandfather worked for him at the Flying L Ranch. He was a wonderful man.

RE: Samuel Osborn Woodland Cemetery
I am not sure; I would have entered "about 1820" if that was an option.

Thank you ever so much, I guess there wasn't a marker for Richard, or was it covered up and you could not find it? Any way thanks again for your help. Clytie
