  Cindy Klein: cbreezemom@home.com -- just got some Civil War information about William J York. William is the "brother" that my Andrew Marion York was living with in the several Keokuk, Iowa census. One place states he was born in Ratherfon (hard to read), NC, his middle name is Jefferson, he enlisted Aug 12, 1862 in Richland, Iowa into Company I the 40th Regiment of Iowa Volunteers and was discharged Aug 2, 1865. He died in Mingo, Jasper Co., Iowa on April 14, 1901 due to disease of heart. Other interesting things, Melissa Earl, his wife applied for widow benifits in 1896. She was living in Pendleton, Oregon and stated that she had not heard from him since 1871 when he dissappeared. One of the witness was a John P. Earl, maybe a brother she went to live with. But, there is also another declaration of a widow for pension, this was filed in 1904 by Catherine York, also wife of William Jefferson York. A copy of the marriage certificate was enclosed and shows William J York and Katie Thom married in Des Moines, Iowa on July 9, 1887. In one place in the papers William York indicated that he had divorced Melissa in 1869. William J. York -- There was 1 paper in his pension files that talks of him enlisting in Aug 25, 1847 in Galenia, Il (not far from Iowa) in the 16th Regiment to US Inf, age 24. States he was discharged July 10, 1848.
