To: Tom Elmore, Chris Ferguson, Jim Huffman, George Martin, Alan Pitts, Mitchell Sanders, Jim Taylor, and all others who have tried to help find the final resting place of Lt. William H. Harmon of the 42nd Mississippi. Just wanted to thank all of you for your continued support and help, in finding the burial location of Lt. William H. Harmon. Knowing little about the Civil War and burials, I thought that Lt. Harmon was probably buried at Gettysburg, but now know that isn't most likely the case. I have received continued clues that lead me to believe Lt. William H. Harmon was taken to Richmond after being so badly wounded at Gettysburg, and is most likely buried in
Richmond. I did find record of one W. H. Herman being buried at Oakwood. It's possible that this is the soldier we have all been searching for, but I don't have any proof. I am planning a trip to the National Archives in late January or early February, and would love any suggestions on researching Confederate soldiers. I am going to have Lt. Harmon's records pulled, along with other soldiers with the same or similar names. I still need to call the Sons of Confederate Veterans, and see if they might offer any suggestions, or know of Lt. Harmon's burial location. Again, thank you so much for trying to help Lt. Colonel Fred Harmon find the grave of his brave ancestor.
