~ God Bless America ~

     Today is Memorial Day.

     I have ancestors who served our country from the Civil War to the Korean War and a few in between.  The ancestor who I know the least about or actually know nothing about is my maternal, great-great-great-grandfather Samuel C. Braught from Ohio.
     I recently found the pension record for Samuel which listed his wife, Emily as widow.
     Samuel C. Braught died in the Civil War.    R.I.P.
