Buried in Leavenworth National Cem. is a Jacob Staley born ca. 1830, died 2 Jul 1890. Wife was Mary A. He served in Co. E, 48th Regt. Ill. Inf.
I believe he is the Jacob Staley I've been searching for but need more proof.
Where was he born? What happened to his wife Mary? Children's names? Is there an obit for him? Are there any Civil War Pension Papers for him?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
