Re: Miltimore/McArthur - Limington, Maine

In Reply to: Miltimore/McArthur - Limington, Maine by Graeme C. Miltimore of 70

Hello Mr. Miltimore :

I have stumbled across some curious information about the
Arthur McArthur family of Limington, ME. I am not in any
way related. I found this information in the course of re-
searching Civil War units here in the Sabine Parish, LA

I believe Arthur & Sarah Miltimore McArthur had at least
2 sons. These were William & Arthur.

Arthur McArthur, Jr. was Capt. ( later Maj. ) of Co. A,
6th LA Infantry. He was killed at Winchester, VA on 25
May 1862.

William Miltimore McArthur was probably Capt. ( later Col. ) of Co. I, 8th Maine Infantry.

There is some probability that Wm. M. got wind of his brother's death, came and retrieved the body and took it
somewhere for burial ( possibly Maine -- but doubtful ).

I just wanted to pass this anecdote on to someone up north
who might appreciate a real illustration of what a cruel
affair the Civil War really was !!!

Regards ............ Rocky Wright in Sabine Par., LA.
