A Soldier, His Brother, and a House -- the Defendorf Story

Now available on in paperback format -- it is a great addition to your collection if you are history buff for either local history or Civil War letters.

Jacob Defendorf was a 15-year old soldier for the Union side in 1863 during the Civil War.  Some letters he wrote and some he received were found in a Fowlerville house.  They have now been transcribed for this book.  Timeline history and explanation of some things he wrote, as well as ancestry research, is contained in this book.

A Soldier, His Brother, and a House

New book out! "A Soldier, His Brother, and a House" With access to original Civil War letters, I traced heritage from the soldier's home in New York, to his time in Virginia during the Civil War, to his brother's help in becoming a homeopathic surgeon who lived in Fowlerville, Michigan, onto the incredible history of the brother's house and its owners. I transcribed all of the letters to make them easier for the reader but scanned copies of the letters are also in the book. I have a few copies at $25 but will be on in the very near future. If you are interested in the Civil War, this has awesome moments in the life of a soldier.

Thank you to Mike and Jamie Hernden for the opportunity to put this project together!
