Tim:

Ancestry.com used to give everyone two weeks free. Monthly memberships were also available. However, I don't think you know enough yet to use the site -- generally, you have to know at least a county and state.

Step one: Talk to every elderly relative you have -- one of them might have a hint or two about where ggggdaddy and his brothers lived.

Step two: Keep asking; someone will have a better idea.

Step three: start with the family name and make yourself a chart of their unit and where it was mustered in.

Step four: Pray you get lucky.
