Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm looking for the parents of Henry Aldrich who lost his life in battle at Antietam at Sharpsburg, Washington County, Maryland on September 17, 1862.

Mr. Aldrich entered the service from Bristol, Connecticut where he lived with his wife, Sarah (Peck) Aldrich and their three young children. He was 41 years old and working at the Bristol Clock Company when he enlisted on July 24, 1862. He was mustered into Company K of the 16th Connecticut Infantry on August 24, 1862, and was killed just 24 days later.

Mr. Aldrich is believed to have been born in Worcester, Massachusetts in 1821. He has been mistaken for Henry Alanson Aldrich who died in Worcester County, Massachusetts in 1906.

Henry Aldrich's oldest son, John W. Aldrich also served in the Civil War, and I'm trying to learn who his mother was.

Thank you in advance for any advice or help you may have to offer.

RE: Gladys Mills
I am not sure if they are related to you or Gladus Mills but I also uploaded photos for Gilbert/Janet T. Coates, Mary M. Lockwood, Margaret C./Sarah E./Frank J. Nickels and Helen Coates Houston who were in the same plot.

RE: James J. Shortell
You're very welcome. I see you have requests in for other Shortell family members. I'm hoping to get back to LINC this month and tackle a few more sections. At 175 acres its a bit of challenge to cover. Sincerely, Helen

RE: Thomas Urmston
That's a long way from home to die.

Glad to see you could make out the words on his gravestone better than me.

Thanks again,

RE: Meyer family memorials
No problem. Mary Doerr's name was on the 3rd side (4th side was blank). I added 2 photos for her

RE: John Shortell
You're very welcome for the photos. I believe you have requests in for other Shortell ancestors buried at Long Island National Cemetery. Not sure if you are aware, but LINC covers 175 acres, making it difficult to cover more than two or three sections each visit. I'm tackling requests in the letter sections, from the end of the alphabet forward, but have only finished letters L through Z so far, and that covers 128 requests. I, or one of the other photo volunteers, will get to your other requests eventually I'm sure. I hope you don't mind being patient. Sincerely, Helen
