Gloria Peck My Great Grandfather was MARTIN VAN BUREN PRESTON and served in the Civil War. I have a photo and a photo copy of his Discharge Paper. He lost an eye in the Civil War. I believe he was born in Ohio and Died in South Dakota. He is buried in the Old Soldiers Cemetery in Hot Springs South Dakota. He lived his life in Nebraska and the Yankton So. Dakota areas. He married a Mary Coats...they separated I believe. He had a daughter Sara Carella ... Sara married Lewis Peter Anderson.
I would appreciate anyone who recognizes any of these names would correspond with me.
Thank you
Glory
