Researching Cheuvront Family Line ~ Aaron Cheuvront and the Civil War

 This month I have decided to concentrate on my Cheuvront family line. The family line began in America with Joseph Cheuvront and the last Cheuvront in my family line was my second great grandmother Alta Cheuvront who married John Coleman in 1866.
 It is believed that Aaron was married three times with Amanda Matilda Grant being wife number 1, Sarah Richards wife number two and that he married for the third time to Matilda Bolin.
In researching I have found that Aaron Charles  fought in the Civil War on the Union side . He was residing in West Virginia and was in the 11th Regiment, West Virginia Infantry Company K and was a private during his time in the military.
Tonight I found at http://www.civilwararchive.com/unionwv.htm,  http://www.wvcivilwar.com/union-regiments/11th-west-virginia-infantry/
Information on the 11th Regiment Infantry the following..
In researching I have found that Aaron Charles  fought in the Civil War on the Union side . He was residing in West Virginia and was in the 11th Regiment, West Virginia Infantry Company K and was a private during his time in the military.
What I am still searching for is when he enlisted and when he was mustered out. These records can be found at the National Archives if I do not find them on the Internet.

I now know of three ancestors who fought in the civil war. Besides Aaron Cheuvront  my great great grandfather John Lockwood and John's brother Frederick Lockwood fought on the union side. Both signed up with Wisconsin Calvary and served about one year.

Happy 4th of July 2013, another year we can celebrate our freedom thanks to those who fought for it so many years ago. 

I am what is known as a mutt. My ancestors came from several areas in Europe. England, Ireland, France, Germany and Scotland.
One of the firsts was the Day line from England, the Zion line from Germany and Cheauvront line from France.
Fighting in the Revolutionary war were the family names of
Daniel Day 14th Nov 1746 to 1830
Joseph Cheuvront  2nd  Feb 1757 to 25 Mar 1832
John Rouse 9th of  Dec 1741 to 19th Jan 1834 Pension Files found

There were probably other family members who fought in this war and I will be busy searching for their information.
