Thank you Mr. Martin. I had some of the information, but Major Thompson's reason for
giving up his commission was new to me. I was hoping to find a distant cousin in the ranks, I am also related
Washington Long and Nimrod Frazier. it appears many of the 51st made it through the War.
I still hope a long lost relative will show up, and we could exchange a few family stories.
Thanks again for your assistance.
Fred B. Thompson II
