In honor of Veterans Day I would like to Thank all active duty and veterans of this great country. If it wasn’t for them I wouldn’t be here and able to do what I love.
I would specially like to honor my family. Here is a list of the ones I know were in the military and for the ones I will still discover in my further research.
First off my husband, Steven Robert Evans: USAF,(middle) my son Jake Ross Evans: USAF (right) and my brother: Christopher Allen Warren: USAF (left)
From My side of the family –
Thomas Jefferson Vennum: Union
Alexander Draper: Union 10th Iowa Infantry
Alexander’s brother, Abraham I. Draper: Union 71st Illinois Infantry
Norman Lewis Draper: WW11 534th Anti-Aircraft Artillery
Daniel Richard Lawry: Union 5th Missouri SM CA.
William McElyea: Revolutionary War 10th Regt. North Carolina Capt. Alexander Brevard
William’s brother, Patric was also in the Revolutionary War

William Cloud Mills: Co. D 29th Tennessee Inf. Confederate
William’s brothers were also in the Civil War. Some Confederate and others Union
William Mills: Revolutionary War
Powel Hamilton Sharp: Black Hawk War Reg. 4 Brigade 3 Illinois
Burrell Warren: War 1812 2nd Reg. West Tennessee Volunteer Mounted Gunman
Burrell’s father William Warren was probably in the Revolutionary War since Williams brother Drury was but there’s so many William Warren’s in the Revolutionary War I have been unable to locate my William.
John T. Wheeler: Union Company H. 145 IL US Infantry
Leroy B. Wheeler: WW1
John A. Wheeler: WW11
