RE: Who is this?
Thanks Roger.

He definitely has Native American features, and I remember Mike's question, so I put two and two together.

This person has no direct connection to Lincoln, but one of his relatives does. Who is he?

Wild guess --> Elliott Herndon (William Herndon's brother)?

RE: Who is this?
Good guess Roger, but that's not it.

The connection was during the Civil War years.

RE: Who is this?
Clue: He and his relative joined the service at the same time.

RE: Who is this?
Are Mary Lincoln's family members involved in the answer?

Was he involved in the capture of Booth?

RE: Who is this?
Roger,
He has no connection to Mary

Mike,
There is a connection to Booth.

RE: Who is this?
Roger was on the right track. It isn't Omar Conger, but rather is Everton Conger's other brother, Seymour B. Conger.

Mike gets a half point for figuring out the question involved Booth.

This is a statue of Abraham Lincoln along with a statue of another man. Who is the other man?

I know this isn't even close, but I'll take a stab in the dark and say Jefferson Davis.
