Do You Know Them?

I desire to know the whereabouts of
John Taliaferro, Major Wooldridge, Den-
nis Minor, who was in Co. B, 119 Reg-
iment, which was made up at Camp
Nelson, Kentucky, and was discharged
at Louisville, Ky. Also John Clark,
Walker Clark and Lewis Clark, who
were in the same company and regi-
ment. They belonged to William Jor-
dan in Powhatan County, Va., and we
separated in Richmond. They went to
Powhatan County, Va., their home and
I came to Buckingham county, Va. We
worked at the Salt Works together.

Any information will be thankfully
received by
