New documents added

I was contacted about some documents that I was given by Winfield Mayne of Iowa. Most of them deal with his family that fought in the Civil War. They are about the Battle of Kirksville and the Mississippi Marine Brigade. A couple of the other documents are short and deal with Johann Georg Mehn, his wife, and the Harle, the ship that Johann came in on. These documents can be found under the documents link in the Main family tree.

The reports were written by Winfield so if used please remember to cite who wrote the report.

  1. Thanks for getting all this into digital form and available for all the MEHN offspring to access. All I set out to do was learn more about Lt. Mayne’s death and to identify the missing link who now is known as 1st Lt. Thompson W. McCune. Once I found him, and found his grave in Memphis National Cemetery, I strongly feel that Lt. Mayne is one of several “unknowns” brought in with Lt. McCune from Island 35 at the same time. I also found his descendants not far from here and got a lot of additional details, pictures, details etc. from them. Have a lot more as yet being detailed out so anyone who wants “more to the story” is welcome to get in touch.
