Once again, the SHPG on Facebook shows its true colors. Does this qualify under “I hate Yankees” enough for Connie Chastain…to find joy in the death of another human being…even a Yankee? Bill questions my ancestral heritage, but I can assure him that my ancestor, John Farmer was a member of the 60th Illinois Volunteer Infantry and served with honor in the Atlanta Campaign and the March to the Sea and into the Carolinas. He was mustered out just after the Burning of Columbia. John signed up on Feb. 21, 1862 and mustered out in March of 1865 after his enlistment expired and since the war was nearing an end he did not re-enlist. You can easily find his name among the several websites dealing with Illinois regiments during the war.
I find it very troubling that Carl would say such a thing about my ancestor despite the fact I have never made a comment about his direct ancestor(s) before or that Bill would question the accuracy of my genealogy. But I must remember who I am dealing with and be content with the knowledge I have and that they lack.
