During my research at the Fenton Library in Jamestown, NY for my Dodge ancestors I came across info about Reuben and Nathan Thompson. Unfortunately, I did not write down the cite. Following was explanation: "Genealogical data regarding this soldier received August 28, 1985, from a lineal descendant, Mr. Sherwin Chase, of Santa Barbara, California, enables the compiler to report that his first book-account is fully accurate and is now more complete by virtue of the new data he is able to report."
