Searching for more information on Loren Anderson Brooks (b.1825 in Chemung, NY-d.? in Minnesota). He enlisted and served in the 13th Wisconsin Regiment, Company D for three years. He was awarded a soldier's homestead in Renville County, MN for his service. He moved there with his wife, Elizabeth Naomi Thomas (married in 1851).
Any help on these persons would be great. I know that Loren lived in Coldwater, MI before his service in Wisconsin but, do not know when he moved from Michigan.
I am willing to share any information I have with you. Thank you in advance for your help.
