I read one of your surnames was Meloy. I am trying to trace the ancestry of my husband's family. His great, great grandfather was William M. Meloy, B. 1846, fought in the Civil War and was at the surrender at Appomatix (we have his diary). However, I cannot verify beyond that. I have found a Thomas Meloy who had a son William andthe age fits, that lived in Juniata Co. PA. After the Civil War William returned to Carlisle (Cumberland Co.) PA, about 40 miles from Juniata Co. We know the Meloy's immigrated from northern Ireland.
What info do you have on the Meloy family and could there be any connection? Would appreciate any info you have.
Thanks, libra189 (J. Meloy)
