I realize that I am replying to a very old post, but I would love to see the picture of Comfort Ranney and family if it is still available. Also, any information you have on him would be helpful. I find lots of information on his Civil War service with an enlistment date of April, 1862, but also a draft record dated July 1863. Very confusing, and trying to make heads or tails about it.
