Civil War Ferries.

I had been thinking of doing this page for a very long time, but always held off because there were no first names to go with the surnames. But then I got to thinking that this page could be a help to a lot of people. I know there are families that heard family stories of the family having a ferry but knew very little about it, then there are families who had a ancestor killed or wounded at or near a ferry and would like to know more about were it was and so on.

There are people who are researching different ferries and are always looking for information on them. So in all this page may be a help to a lot of people. Just keep in mind this list is in no kind of order, and was put down as they were found. There were many campaigns in a State and were called by different names and for this reason some ferries will be mention more then once.

Important note. I have thousands of names at this site, when asking about a name from this page or any other pages at this site, please give the ( Title of the page ), for without it I may not be able to help you. My address can be found in my profile.

Silas Mercer Family.

The other day I saw a post asking about Silas Mercer, I have seen the Mercer name before while researching other names, so I looked into it and found the information interesting and thought it would make a good page. I know there is a lot more on Silas and his family and this page is far from being completed, but it will give those looking into this family a good start.

Note. I will only deal with Silas and his family, but for those of you who would like to trace his family back, you will find his family goes back to England to The year of about 1590, the same goes for his wife Dorcas Green, and her family who go back to 1661, Ireland. Now this information can be found quite easily with a little research.

The Job Of The Cashier.

When I first stared this page I thought I know what a cashier was. I like most thought of a person standing behind steel bars or a bird cage in a bank who took or give you money. Then there were the cashiers that worked in restaurants and the Five & dime store, or the many other business were you paid for a service. But there is another kind of cashier, they were the ( Professional Cashier ), These cashiers worked for the War Department, Treasury Department and in the Presidents Office.

Then there were the professional cashiers that worked for big business. These professional cashiers deal in large sums of money or bonds. These cashiers would travel across the state or to other countries to deliver these large sums of money, bonds and bank drafts. The professional cashiers that worked for the United Stares Government were not just hired they were appointment jobs and were appointed by Congress.
