From Ancestry & National Archives: "US Returns from Military Posts, 1806-1916--Report of Commissioned Officers, Present and Absent, accounted for by name." Lt. John W Martin is shown present for duty with Co B. The US Army was actively engaged in the Indian Wars at this time. You may recall that George Armstrong Custer & command were killed by Sitting Bull at the Little Bighorn 25 June 1876. DOES ANYONE CONNECT WITH LT. JOHN W MARTIN???? I'm wondering if Lt. John W Martin is connected with my other recent query on Nettie Elizabeth Martin baptized 20 Dec 1868 Trinity Cathedral-Episcopal Omaha NE?
