Hi Cuz,
Glad to be here. Been looking forward to it. Time for
the Calais Advertiser Article! Will contact them tomorrow
if "sender" is working.
Ordered your forage cap this morning. Found an outfit in
" Ole Miss " that made the closest match. I ordered the
brass through a friend of mine. I'm excited about this.
This is my first official " authentic uniform research "
project.
Now this is a forage cap - the " high crown " service
cap. I think that it is a great fishing accessory - it
will hold hundreds of flies to begin with. It is also
very deep the round crown was designed to fall forward
so that the brass Unit I.D. could be seen from the
front. If you get hungry on a fishing trip and have
to " forage " at a nearby farm, it will hold a LOT
of stolen eggs or potatoes.
It will have one U.A. device attached - a red and
white streamer tied by Ray Gendreau who lived across
from the mouth of the Snigdom Road, c. 1960. Try it
in Musquash Stream sometime!

Aye,

Wayne

My GGrandfather was Owen O'Neill who entered the war in 1862,
He was "C' company and was wounded in the battle of Boydon Plank Road
1864. His brother Patrick was in "K" company but can't
find anything on him. They were living in Maine but were
Irish and Canadian. Would love to find out more. Where
can I go from here? We have more info on Owen but Patrick has
disappeared and we suspect more of the family joined the
the 1St Maine Hwavy Artillery. Jan

As I indicated previously, my G-grandfather, Benjamin S. Campbell was wounded during the May 19, 1864 action. His cousin, William B. Campbell was wounded same day, lost his right leg. I believe William was Clerk of Courts in Ellsworth sometime later. Did he have a family? I have a little Campbell information to share.
