    • Tamara O'Dell wrote asking for information about her "gggrandfather and his family. He was...a captain in the 5th Iowa Calvary (Civil War). My mother says he had a daughter named Emma and sons named Charles and Fred (my ggrandfather). He was called WG. His father was possibly named James or Jim and was born in Ireland. This is all she remembers." Source: <http://genforum.genealogy.com/mcelrea/messages/52.html> [2]
