Reading:

American - linking with Civil War worked for the Confederates (Grey uniforms) (not Blue) - High up wife or partner of high up Officer - Officer’s wife - woman looks much much the same as now - I (Grant) came across something opposing me (Baillie Kell) came across her in that life - under handed feel - with me where I was, ranking order - What was being being said about me at the time - to do with my promotion. (I was recommend but never made an Officer) Died normal age - Battle plans - I’ve gone against the plans - ranking order - she does like it - them talking about me that way - links to Mississippi area - grassy fields - lands. Period dress ringlets in hair - crinoline dresses - darker hair - face similar.

Wife, children, Important as upper class Officer - short looking auburn beard - 3 Stars (General or Colonel) I am a relative !!! something outspoken I went against the status - Not army - something about him - I knew about the lady - is the other lady’s secret Husband wasn’t loyal - Sarah she was my cousin (wife) I had a soft for her - a better life. I would have given more emotion, love and affection - protective feeling carries over to this life. Husband’s was a player.

So you have come in to her life to protect her, guide her, talented energy - she played piano - music - does not play in this life - Only life with me.

Lot of American in her general lives. Tendency to divert her energy from the family.

Independent - Sarah (name) 13 - 14 pregnant in that life - 2 or 3 children by the time she was 22 - 23. I cared for her - Name - sounds like Sarah Golding - Goulding - Godlin - GODLING or - GODLING - family goes back to Massachusetts - other lives in Cleveland (where is that? near Massachusetts?) (I explain the geography).

Other lives in these places. American Civil War - BIG HOUSE, SERVANTS, classic mansion etc. Classy lady! General I was connected to - like my cousin - was the General’s wife late 1800’s (1861-65) (1867).

Companies in this Regiment with the Counties of Origin

Men often enlisted in a company recruited in the counties where they lived though not always. After many battles, companies might be combined because so many men were killed or wounded. However if you are unsure which company your ancestor was in, try the company recruited in his county first.
