ABSHIER, Allen G.-- Union Soldier's medal
Posted by: Sandy Wiser (ID *****9279) Date: March 19, 2003 at 20:27:49

The following West Virginia State Historical websites list hundreds of names of soldiers who have unclaimed Civil War

"In 1866, the state of West Virginia authorized the minting of over 26,000 medals to honor its Union Civil War
soldiers. Today, over 4,000 medals remain unclaimed."

I found the following soldier's name. Perhaps one of his descendants will see this and can make a claim for the medal:

Abshier, Allen; G; 1st Reg Vet Inf Vol
