The George Felty that Farrel Kleem and Dennis Brandt have posted is of great interest to me. I would love to have a copy of the book. Please let me know where to get it. I have some info on both men, George Felty and his friend George W. Flemming. George Felty was my grandmother's mother's father. George W. Flemming is my great uncle and yes, my grandfather's brother. He was the only George W. Flemming in the 87th PA Inf during the civil war from that area. The way the Felty family had to survive was unreal. God Bless them, none of them had it easy back in those days.
If anyone has info to share, I will be glad to share also. Please let me know where I can get a copy of the book on Prowell's History of the 87th Regiment. I want and need to see how much of this all matches up with what I have. My knowledge all comes from my family which I have heard all of my life and I am of a much older age now and remember all of what my parent's and grandparent's have told us all of our lives, plus been doing research since 1980. The Felty family is related to my father's side of the family and the Flemming family are my mother's side of the family. This is really some puzzle to understand but is coming together nicely. Charles W. Flemming was a Colonel in the civil war. I had his discharge in my own hands twice. We no longer have his discharge. I believe it was to be put in the Gettysburg Historical Museum if it is not already there. The Felty's, Riegels and Wagner's are all related. The Flemming's tie into the Wagner line. Hope to hear soon on where I may find the book.
