I am researching the 81st Pa., and the men who served in it. Although I suspected that George and Killian were brothers, I did not know it for certain. George was killed, I believe, at Fredricksburg. He is supposed to be buried in The Mauch Chunk Cemetery in what is now Jim Thorpe, Carbon County, Pa. I could not find any headstone for him. His widow applied for a pension. I believe her name was Margaret.
Killian is buried in the Lehighton Cemetery, also in Carbon County.
I would be very grateful for any other information about these men. I would be interested in copies of any pension records and am willing to pay copying costs and postage.
I would also be very interested in a photo of Killian's waepon. I don't know why he would have a pistol. He may have obtained it at the end of the war. He may have been a teamster in the army, but I still do not believe he would be issued a sidearm. It is very intriguing.
Thank you for any help on these men.
Co. K, 81st PVI
