George Van Buren Draft Record & Headstone

4 Dec

Below is the 1863 record for George Van Buren signing up for the Union draft during the Civil War. George was not drafted but enlisted and fought in the Tenth Michigan Calvary, a Corporal, Company G, from 27 AUG 1864 to 16 JUN 1865.

George Washington Van Buren was the father of Anna Elizabeth Van Buren Ellison.

You will note the other Van Buren’s on the document. Ebenezer was George’s brother, sons of William Van Buren and Amanda Bradley Van Buren. I am not certain who Henry was, born circa 1830 also in New York. Amanda was born in 1816, making it unlikely that she was Henry’s mother.

They are living in Danby, Michigan at this time.
