On This Date in Minnesota History: October 4

October 4, 1864 – “Albert Henry Woolson enrolled to serve one year in the Civil War [on this date]. He was discharged September 27, 1865, at Nashville, Tennessee, as a private of Captain Calvin Reaves’ 1st Regiment of Minnesota Heavy Artillery Volunteers. Woolson was the last survivor of the Grand Army of the Republic and died in Duluth at St. Luke's hospital on August 2, 1956, at age 109. He was buried at Duluth's Park Hill Cemetery with ‘modified complete military funeral’ on August 6, 1956.”




If you are interested in finding out more about your family history in Minnesota, I specialize in researching  genealogical and historical records in Minn. and western Wis., including:
census records,  birth records,  death certificates, obits, grave site photos, ship passenger lists, marriage records and declarations of intent/naturalization records.  I will visit locations to research local history and county records, as well as take photos. Quick turnaround on MNHS records.  Both short searches and family history reports.
