This sounds very familiar as there are relatives of mine buried at Jefferson Barricks. I know that Edward George Koehne, son of John Frederick Koehne, Jr., is buried there. My g-g-gf, George Henry Koehne, Sr. (b. 4/10/1889) is buried in Coffeyville, KS, so it's not him. I'm not sure about any involvement in the civil war, however. According to George Henry, Sr. The Koehne bos. left Germany because of a revolution. He said that when his father, John Frederick, Sr. was asked to fight in the Civil War, he said in German that he didn't understand! John F. Sr's brother, Theodore C. Koehne, settled in Salisbury, MO & George seems to have been a popular family name so it is highly likely your friend & I are related somehow. Does your friend have pictures he can email?
