Civil War:
*LEWIS CRANFORD BLACK (aka Louis C.) Co A Reg  Div Ga 1861-1865  Deceased 12/07/1912
1Charles S. Black, born August 27, 1828 in Skein, Norway, died August 4 1913.  Served in the 15th Wisconsin Infantry, Company G. from November 1861, to
    January 1865.  The 15th joined Sherman in May 1964 for his march to the sea.  I believe that Charles BLACK may have changed his name to BLACK when he
    arrived in America.  Any help on how to find his Norwegian name would be appreciated.
