John W. Walker-William H. Earhart-Samuel M. Zent.

Here are three men from Indiana who were in the service of the United States. I tried to find records of them but there were no reports on them in the Official records. There is a little information on, I was going to delete them then decided not to, as I know there were others looking into these names and it would be nice to be able to look into the face of ones ancestor.
Note. All Photos can be enlarged by pushing on them.
