During my weekend antique hunting routine, I
came across a document from your area I think you may have some
interest in, and I would like to know more about. I graduated from
High School at Brockport in 1974 so I'm familiar with the area,
although I found this document in Newberry, South Carolina.
By coincidence one of the names on the document is listed on the
Genesee County NYGenweb site, that of Henry W. Merriman. It appears
as if Henry purchased a substitute to carry out his Civil War military
duties for the sum of $400.00. The person who acted as his substitute
is barely legible on the document, and that is where my interest
I'm hoping that you may be able to identify by some means who took
Henry's place and what became of him during his military duties.
