Thanks from me too, Susan, Roger & Rob.
Rob, great article that you linked to. That had just about everything I wanted to know, except for one detail.
It is the same question Roger asked back in post #28.

RE: When asked to recall his impression of the young man who served as President Lincoln’s representative recruit, Larner is quoted as saying:

“There lived in our ward the son of a clergyman, who bore the usual reputation given a minister’s son. He was naturally a ne’re do well and it is generally believed he was killed during the Wilderness Campaign.”

"There is no footnote for Larner's quote. And there are no footnotes for the article as a whole. I do not know what is true and what isn't.

Can you give another source for Larner's alleged quote? Thanks."

Maharba, considering some of the strong negative comments you have shared with us regarding Mr. Larner (post #1 & #20), that is an important detail.
And thank you for the compliment about my research abilities, I wish they were as good as you think they are

So when is this "Old Enough To Know Better" supposed to kick in?
