Dick Peer Article on Civil War Monuments

Reminder- This Thursday-- March 24, 2011, the Lindley Presho Historical Society is presenting a program -- Our Civil War Veterans 7 P.M. At the Lindley Town Hall.
Clayton's Steuben County History names 125 men from Lindley who served. Older Lindley names such as : Col.Morgan (Morgan Creek Road), Riffle, Herrick, Gordon ,Lindsley, Mulford, Seelye, Cook -(Cook's Creek-Tannery Creek) , Westcott,Watson (Watson Creek Road),Tremain,Thurber(Thurber Road-Caton) ,Vastbinder,Wheeler, Harrower, Hovey are just a few .

Descendants of some of these men still live in the area. Are you one of them?
I will have a notebook with names and information on many of these men available for reference . Many of these men are buried in the Lindley-Presho and Lawrenceville Cemeteries .

Those attending the meeting are encouraged to share information on their Civil War ancestors.

Also,of interest is the fact that the Corning monument celebrates 100 years in 2011 . Uri Mulford - descendant of our early Mulford family - was one of the men instrumental in dedicating this and the Painted Post monuments.
