So good to hear you had some luck finding Grand Army of the Republic (GAR) records.
Pam bless your kind soul for telling us. Please help us out here. Would you please tell
us (I think it would be interesting to a lot of folks on the list and for the list
archives) or at least tell me where you found the GAR records? Please, please lead me by
the hand and tell me what to do and whom I should ask. Give me all the details.
Also, please explain in detail the kinds of information found in records the GAR kept. I
don't want to have unrealistic expectations. Thanks in advance (TIA)
If some kind soul (SKS) out there can assist in any way I would really appreciate it.
I have been trying to find anyone that even knew anything about the Cincinnati, Appanoose
Co, Iowa GAR post named for my great-grandfather, 1st Sgt. Company I, 36th Infantry
Regiment Iowa Henry JAQUISS and everyone including GAR websites has/have replied that
there are no known records. That when the post disbanded or the last member died each
post did whatever with their records and that there is no known central depository.
Grand Army of the Republic Cincinnati, Iowa Post # 325 named Jaquiss in honor of Henry
1st Sgt. 36th Iowa Infantry
Department of Iowa: Post Names and Locations (Posts 301-400)
Organized September 26, 1866
Reorganized January 23, 1879
325. Jaquiss Cincinnati
I was hoping there would be records and maybe since the post was named for him even a
Deborah Jaquiss in the suburbs of Washington, DC, USA
snip >>>>>Pam Prine said I just wanted to add to the G.A.R. discussion that
I found a lot of missing dates on my ancestor's G.A.R. record. I had the names of his
children, but not the dates. It was well worth the effort to find the record. Pam
