The goal of this project is to identify my ancestors and near ancestors who participated in the American Civil War...Sub goal is to identify the descendants of James Ebenezer Smith who served during the Civil War. James is a veteran of the American Revolutionary War. James and his wife Ruth Ann Pigott had 6 sons and 1 son in law who served during the War of 1812. James and Ruth also had an unbelievable 116 grand children - 100 Smith, 7 Randolph and 9 Nichols, So far I have identified 19 Smith, 2 Randolph and 1 Nichols grandsons and 1 Smith and 1 Randolph great grandson who served during the Civil War. For a list see the profile of James Ebenezer Smith . Wiki ID < Smith-72645 > I am also interested in American Revolutionary War and War of 1812 family veterans.

Right now this project just has one member, me. I am Dave May.

Here are some of the tasks that I think need to be done. I'll be working on them, and could use your help.

  • The Smith name being probably the most common surname at the time of the Civil War any suggestions to make the task easier would be helpful.
