My great grandfather told my dad that we had a relative in the Civil War. After many hours of looking through Indiana regimental rosters I think I might have found the guy. He would have been 2 months shy of his 17th birthday when he enlisted. The first and last names match plus his middle initial. He also would have been living in the county they guy on the roster listed as his residence. But I saw his and his wife's gravestone and it doesn't mention his service. I'm really wanting to nail this down 100%....where and what can I do to verify that he is or isn't the Civil War ancestor? The guy survived the war and rose to the rank of Sgt.
