Kathleen McCune These are the exact areas the Campbells lived before homesteading in Central Kansas. Very likely the same family. I have read that Missourians were torn even within families with their own allegiance during the Civil War and this was probably that kind of situation.

Kathleen McCune I have tried, however; since he served for the Confederacy the US Gov has no records. However, I can tell you she did not marry until October 15, 1871 when she married Eben Averill from Maine, but who was then serving in 1870 census as a Private, Co. C, 3rd Inf.at the age of 24. They were just a year apart in age and she obviously still liked the military look. He was from a family of clerics/preachers and has a relative who is also an author on staff at Washburn University, Topeka, Kansas. My book ANNE which will be published next year will contain more details.

Kathleen McCune You may be right....on further study I found Lena's middle name different than our family's Lena and Luther is not our Luther.
