Hi, George Schindele was my great grandfather. Adding to his bio, he was captured at Cold Harbor and iimprisoned at Andersonville. His son (also George) was an officer in the Navy during WWI and his grandson John (my father) was on the USS Johnston at the battle off Samar in WWII and spent 52 hours in the Pacific after his ship was sunk before being rescued.

Lt. Thomas Sillyman was my great grandfather. Correction: he died in Ely, Nevada in 1922. Also, he was wounded and captured at Bull Run 2 and eventually paroled at which time he promptly rejoined the 48th.
His middle name was Harrison, probably a tribute to war hero and future president William Harrison.
