RE: Wrightsville, Ohio
The Wrightsville he came to is a small small town in Adams County, Ohio on the Ohio River, not Pennsylvania. He met my gg grandmother, Catherine Leonard there. Leonards settled in Wrightsville. Family stories say Henry Myers was raised by an aunt in Germany, and she was going to put him in a monestary, so he decided to leave and come to American.

I have added information to the two sites mentioned above. With the info you shared and the info I found, I think we are on the right track. I do not find them listed in the 1860 census either. These are the only sources that have surfaced, but I just don't feel it is enough to definitely add their names and say these sites are for Joseph and James. I will keep searching. Thank you so much for your input; it is appreciated.

Take care.

Thank you so much for the photos of the Lossing markers. I was not sure if Willis was also buried here, now I know he is. I have added his page and requested a photo of his marker as well. I appreciate you taking the time to do this for me. Red

RE: First name?
The source for the entries in this cemetery was "The Prairie Sleeps". I entered it the way it was originally transcribed.

RE: Name spelling?
Dan, The dates and military information on the memorial were taken from a Coles County Genealogical Society cemetery publication.

That publication, and the memorial as it originally appeared gave John's last name as Feezle. I changed the memorial to Feezel, which is the spelling used by this line of the family once they moved to Coles, and then Fayette County.

I do believe that Jacob and John were father and son, and they served at the same time, although different units.

I also have a document that says that Jacob's brother, (my great-great-grandfather) Martin Luther Feezel, served as a Teamster in the Illinois 123rd. That is the only reference I find of him being in the Civil War.

Are we kin, or is your interest military?

Thanks for pointing out my typo and for the military info. I included that in his bio.

I wanted to thank you for searching the Old Pulaski Cemetery trying to find the stone for Eliza Meeks. I will remove the request!

Hi! You asked me to update his death place as Zanesvillle. I have no idea where he died, but it seems an odd place for someone buried here. Could you please give me some sort of documentation for that? I will then be happy to update it for you. Thanks.
