Henry A. Clow - Unknown   
I was recently going through some family papers and, coupled with some on-line research, found that my great, great grandfather, Henry A. Clow, at age 19, enlisted in January 4, 1864, and mustered out on July 26, 1865. He married and had two children by his first wife, one of which was my great grandmother on my mother's side. He was a blacksmith and ran a general store in Sumner, MI. I found a newspaper clipping from 1921 that mentioned his 'distinctive service' during the Civil War, but I don't know to what that refers, nor do I know his rank other than I found his name in a roster in the enlisted section.
