Re: Capt J Stilwele
Thanks for the information. This must be the man as Green's Cavalry was a major player in the Red River Campaign. The entry in our minutes lists Capt J.L.H.(or A)Stilwele. The entry is in long hand and hard to read. As was the custom at that time many names were spelled as they sounded. The entry goes on to state that the Brothers of our lodge raised $60.00 among themselves to pay for the funeral in true Masonic fashion. I now will try to determine where he is buried so we (the SCV) can care for his grave. Thanks again.
