When I uncovered the information about my Great Grandfather James Lincicum and later put 2 and 2 together and realized that this is who the guy in the picture was, here are the facts;
MEMBER IN UNITED STATES CIVIL WAR FROM 1861-1865 FOR THE STATE OF OHIO.
VOLUNTEER IN THE UNION ARMY
SERVED IN THE 176TH REGIMENT-OHIO INFANTRY, COMPANY K
ORIGINALLY ENROLLED AS "LINCICOME"
ALSO SERVED IN 188TH REGIMENT OF THE OHIO INFANTRY
Well, needless to say, we were all glad to know who this 20 yr old kid was dressed up in uniform.
My Dad's brother's son was also named James, so he is James III. Fun, Huh? Another interesting fact; back in the day when sweethearts sent their guys off to war, they would frequently add a lock of their hair to the back of the picture before it was framed. I'm just itching to look back there, but I would have to break something to get into it.
And now, I would like to introduce you to some of the Grands;
|Abre and Taylor, Amy's girls|
|This is the Joshie Bear, Heather's son and the youngest clown of the group! (yes, there are others)|
Have a wonderful day, everyone and keeping smiling! Judy
