Christopher SAMPSON - Private   
Christopher passed while in service with the 5th.

Family lore states that Christopher passed either at Kentucky or Louisiana. I find no record of the 5th being in Kentucky but I do find it was in Louisiana during 1864.

If anyone has more details concerning his date, place, cause of death we would appreciate knowing. I am searching the campaign sites in Louisiana in the hope of finding the cemetery where he is buried and his gravesite.

We would like to visit Louisiana and his grave to make arrangements for headstone repairs if needed.

Christopher is my wife's 4th G-Grandfather.

Thanks much,

Mike Cooper

Seeking information on Gustave Brackelsberg. Our limited oral history says that he served in Sioux Uprising and Civil War. Apparently was wounded some where along the way.

We are interested in finding out where he served, service dates, battles if any, and where and when he was wounded.

Ernst Kunze - Private   
Ernst Kunze mustered in as Private Co. D on March 5th 1862.
Engaged in actions at Abercrombie, Dakota Territory Sept. 3+6/1862, Jackson, Mississippi May 14/1863, Siege of Vicksburg 1863, Richmond, Louisiana June 14/1863.
Ernst immigrated from Germany in 1853 with his wife, one son, and his Father-in-law. After briefly stopping in Wisconsin, the family ended up in Carver County. Ernst was a Carpenter and Farmer by trade. He went on furlough after the Battle of Vicksburg and only made it as far as Odin, Ill. where I believe Cholera finally took his life. He left 4 boys and a grieving wife and his burial as far as I know has never been found. Ernst Kunze is my great-great grandfather.
