    Seeking USCT service records of Henry, John & Squire Massenburg

    Inez Hughes Newbie

      In Fold 3, I found a cross reference card from Abby Banister, my 3rd great grandmother, for the service records of Henry Massenburg.    Her request was received to the WAR Dept R & P Divi on Mar 5, 1890.  How would I go about or what documents would I need to submit in order to get a copy of the documents/letter Abby Banister submitted to them for Henry's service records?


      On Ancestry, I found the Service Records for Henry who joined Company C, 37th U.S. Colored Infantry in Newport News, Virginia.  Abby's maiden name was Massenburg and they both were from Sussex County, VA.  I am looking for a direct connection through the records as to their familial relationship.  Henry I believe had two other brothers that joined the U.S.C.T. with him in Newport News, VA: John and Squire. Thanks In advance for your kind assistance.
