On information from Concerned Citizen, Kim J. Heltemes
Well, I have been "digging again" and came up with some more boys of the 47th. I've attached them. Hope you can get them - if you don't, just let me know. I'll send them individually if needed.

Kim-A Concerned Citizen member Wisconsin SUVCW #8
webmasters note: Kim J. Heltemes, Vince Barker and Jim Waid, members of the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War Camp # 8 (SUVCW) have been very helpful in sending me information (and photos) that they have discovered in Cemeteries in Wisconsin. The organization keeps a database of this information and make it available to all who may be searching for Civil War Ancestors who might have been in military units from that state or soldiers who may be interred there. They are a real blessing to us who are researching Civil War History. They not only discover the information but also honor the soldiers by replacing broken or missing headstones and clearing their gravesites. They all deserve a big thank you from from all of us. Thank You guys!
