I was doing research on my family tree and discovered that my great-great grandmother, Lucy Fairbanks Milnes, had a brother named Newton who seemed to just disappear when the family moved from Cranston, RI to Paterson, NJ. Their father, William, had died and their mother, Hannah, got remarried to Richard Fairclough. Only Lucy and her brother Oliver went to Paterson.
So I Googled "Newton Fairbanks" and was quite nicely surprised to find his name on your website. My father was a war buff and would have appreciated finding an "uncle" who had died in one of the early battles of the Civil War.
Lucy's future husband, William Milnes, also served in the war, but returned alive to marry her and have 8 children.
Thank you for providing me with some interesting information to add to my tree.

As an update to my previous comment, I am pleased to let you know that Newton P. Fairbanks' name is memorialized on a soldiers and sailors monument (48 ft. tall) in Paterson, NJ. His brother Oliver made sure that both Newton and his stepfather Richard Fairclough would live on in history. Incidentally, Oliver and Richard spent time at Andersonville, GA prison camp where Richard died. Oliver testified against Henry Wirtz, the commanding officer of the prison camp.
