I'm already obtaining a copy of the pension records that were generated as a result of John's service. We'll be discussing those records in a future issue of Casefile Clues.
There are still a few unanswered questions though about this John Shores. The only way I've connected him to my family is by using the information on the FindAgrave site. Of course that information needs to be validated as it is compiled information and secondary in nature.
My interest in Shores is that I believe him to be the son of a Mary Rampley Shores of Coshocton County, Ohio. Before I research this John too completely, I need to confirm that the Shores in the cemetery in Marietta, Georgia, actually connects to my family.
