I’m the great-great grandson of James Madison Greenlee who was a private in the 15th Missouri Volunteer Infantry between September 20th, 1864 and June 16th, 1865. He was born May 27th, 1839 in Steelville, MO, died June 23rd, 1892 in Potosi, MO, and is buried at St. James Cemetery in Potosi, MO.
He was married on Christmas Day 1861 at Old Mines, MO to Eliza Jane Glore. They had ten children: William Arthur, Elijah Lisbon, Harvey Albert, James Franklin, Rachael Catherine, Eliza Jane, Andrew Rufus, Samuel Waller, Louis Patrick (my great-grandfather), and John Milton.
I don’t have any photos of him or his wife or any diaries, letters, or any personal items at all. I did re-discover his tombstone, however, and I have a photo of that.
