My family has a letter written to my great-great grandmother named Susannah McClelland sent to her by a friend or neighbor dated Easter Sunday from Shiloh.  The letter mentions a fellow friend that was wounded at Shiloh. That wounded friend came home, got married and was my great-great grandfather named James McDowell. I would love to find the family of the man who wrote that letter. His name was Neiahmiah Thomas. First name may be spelled incorrectly. How do I find this mans family. All 3 were in the central part of Ohio.  I would also like to donate the letter to a museum with the guarantee that it would never be sold to a private collector, any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
