    My 3rd Great Grandfather John O Beardsley enlisted with The 50th Wisconsin Infantry Regiment Company G on Mar 8, 1865. I actually have his Civil War Pension file.

    I am researching Captain Myer Asch, 1st NJ Cavalry, who was an Aide-de-camp of General John Pope. He served in the Department of the Northwest when General Pope was sent there in 1862. Capt Asch was there from then until Feb-March 1864 during which time he was also General Pope’s Cief of Cavalry. Do you by chance have any information on Capt Asch?

      That question sounds very familiar, like we have answered it before. The answer is no, we do not have anything on soldiers who served in New Jersey cavalry regiments, even if they were in the Department of the Northwest. Our collections are very localized to our 4-county area. But it is entirely possible that something will appear in a newspaper article in coming months. Our little local newspapers are only indexed for birth, death, and marriage notices of local people, so we won’t know if there is something in a newspaper until we come across it. Have you contacted either the Wisconsin Historical Society or the Minnesota Historical Society? They seem like more likely places to have something.
