(Baxter would enjoy hearing from anyone, especially descendants of the Bates family, who might be able to help him find pictures of Carrie Belle (Wiley) Bates and her father, Charles Wiley, who served in Co. K of the 86th Illinois from Princeville, Illinois for the benefit of the Princeville Historical Society, who are trying to find pictures of all of their Civil War veterans.)
