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
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.
