Looking for a lead to anyone who might have access to the letters Cpt. Weidemeyer CSA of Clinton, Mo.;wrote to his wife who was living in Palestine, Tx.; after being forced to leave Clinton.
He wrote her a letter a day from where ever he might be in action with Cockrells' units all the way to Alabama.
I have 6 of the letters. A box containing over 300 such letters were burned by a family member in Clinton back in 1991. They saved one box containg over 200+ more letters.The relatives name from Clinton that cleaned out the old Weidemeyer family home was named John Robertson. Great-great-great nephew.
Any help would be appreciated.
