My wafe just found out, through her cousin, that her Great, Great Uncle fought in the Civil War.
His name was Abram Lapan, and he fought in the 118Th. New York.
He took part in Drury's Bluff, The Bemuda Hundred Campaign, and was at Cold Harbor.
He mustered in at Saranac, New York in August, 1862.
He was in the "Adirondac Regiment."
After Cold harbor, he contracted a "Respiratory Ailment" and died in July, 1864. He was 24 years old.
He is buried in Hampton, Virginia.
The past Memorial Day, her cousin, who lives in Fredericksburg, drove to the cemetery to put flowers on his grave.
To his knowledge, he is the only relative to visit the grave in 149 Years.
