Private Henry L. Lankton was born about 1844 and died February 5, 1939. See F.A.G. Link. He is a veteran of the civil war serving with Company A, 22nd Regiment Infantry, Conn Vols. We need help connecting him to the wiki family and also finding his enlistment date and muster out date. I have added photos of his gravestone I took to help in his genealogy research.

Thank you
