|Thanks TD for the links. I have dug up a lot of info on Burton Dimmett. He had two brothers who also enlisted, but they were with the 120th Indiana. Meredith though is a very hard guy to link into my family tree. Burton and Meredith both enlisted on the same day so I'm thinking they had to be related somehow. I'm thinking maybe somewhere in the Civil War records there would be next of kin info? How did the families get notified of their members death? Was it the soldiers in his unit that would have passed the info on to back home? Or did they get an official letter from the regiment?
