A collection of historical and genalogical records
Every now and then, I realise that there are sufficient articles on a topic to require a catalogue, and reorganisation of the layout of my files, which I hope will help researchers find what they are looking for.
Today, I have introduced a new section listing Douglas presentation swords.
Along the way, I often discover new articles on the same topic. One such was about the sword presented to Henry B. Douglass sometime after 1850. He apparently served in the 84th New York Guards, No: 1 Company. The only Henry B. Douglass that I can find in that Regiment served as a private soldier in 1864. Would he have been presented with a sword?
I can find a Henry B. Douglass (US Veteran, born 1845, died 31st March 1917) buried in Bath National Cemetery, Bath, Steuben County, New York.
Can anyone help me identify Henry?
