Thank you for the informaiton..
.I'm still not sure of the connection...but clearly since his medal/ribbon was in the family bible it was of great importance to the family....and this is a start in trying to figure it out
Our family names from that area were Colyer (Makes me wonder if there is some conenction here between Kaylor and Colyer)...my grandmother was Minnie Colyer born in Centre County,( her father was William Colyer, son of Daniel, son of John)
Willam Probert ( he had the barbershop and worked for the railroad and husband of Minnie), his mother who was Elizabeth Frances Harris ( maiden name) Probert (marriage 1) Nash ( or Eash--marriage 2)) Abbott (marriage 3). Her Nash (or Eash) husabnd was Edwin. Her Abbott husband was A.G. ( Allen G.) who also worked for the railroad and was said to have had a livery in Derry. He had a son Charles Abbott, a duaghr Bertha Abbott, and a grandson Joseph Abbott. Both Elizabeth and AG had other children who died ( she 5; he 3).
If any of this connects with what you have please let me know. I have so few things from the family that this piece seem of great importance.
