     Barbara Rentenbach writes – I have often wondered if there were some articles in the papers for that time, especially about the Hanlons sending 4 sons. I have the article in the history book about Theophilus’ brothers… in the bio but not much else. If you come across anything or have access to other “news” of these soldiers and veterans, I would love to have it. I have checked the digital shoebox for veteran’s graves and many of these are buried in Jefferson County, Ohio. I have never written for these pension papers. Any additional information on these soldiers and their families would be appreciated. Submitted by: Barbara Rentenbach at Nlyon@aol.com.
