About one week or so ago I sent for Robert Stephens (husbands great grandfather) Civil War records. I ordered them electronically and they have have the equivalent of the snail mail waiting by the mailbox. My latest message is that they were found (YEAH) and are currently being coping and will be mailed to me soon.
I could not find Robert between 1870(Pittsburgh PA) and 1900 (Pittsburgh PA) I am hoping this may shed some light on where he was living in that time period. Also according to the 1900 Pittsburgh Census he had indicated that this was his second marriage and perhaps I will find who the first wife was and if there were children by the first marriage.
I am waiting for the snail mail now.
