My great great grandfather emigrated to America sometime during the Civil War and fought for a "branch" of the Wisconsin Regiment. He chronicled his experiences and those were donated to University of Wisconsin/Madison some time ago.
Does anyone have any additional information on his descendents?

My gg grandfather is John Henry Otto born December 21, 1858 in Wisconson. That is as far back as I have been able to trace on him and that is only because that information was listed in his obituary. He moved from Wisconsin to Richardson County Nebraska prior to 1882. I know this from his wifes history. He married Catherine Ann Christner in Stella Nebraska in 1882. They eventually to Marshall County, Kansas where he died. His obituary didn't say anything about siblings or his parents. Do you think there is possibly a link?

My g-g-grandfather was John Henry Otto and did extensive writing during the civil war. He was with the 21st Wis. Volunteers. Please let me know if this is what you are looking for. His writings are with the state historical society. Please contact me.

Hello Stacey,

I think this is a coincidence, but here goes:

My great-grandfather was named George Henry, and was the son of John Henry Otto. He was born around the time of the civil war in Wisconsin, and had a family of 4 children there. Later he moved east to the New England area, and had a second family. There might be some connection, but I can't imagine what it might be, based on what I now know.

Hi Petra,

Yes, we are cousins and are now in contact, thank you.

Also, I had my great grandfather's name wrong, Henry was my GG grandfather's middle name, not my G grandfather.
