This group of men served during the Civil War in the Arizona Territory. Their assignment was to establish a military presence in the Arizona Territory to discourage Texas invaders from taking the western territories. Nothing else is known of these men.
Is Downer Street in Oroville, perhaps related to Private. H. P. Downer?
Could it be that the Bloch Funeral Home in Gridley was established by someone in Private Joseph Bloch's family?
Is Private Jno. Cassaday related to the family of the same name in Gridley?
