A number of Thorp citizens

Classification: Query
Surnames: Tiedemann
I have been going through my grgrgrandfather Christian Tiedemann's Civil War pension file and I have found it to be a micro-history of Thorp, Clark Co. WI in and of itself. Apparently in order to substantiate his claims to ill health, he had to obtain affidavits from people who knew him, so the file includes statements and signatures from numerous neighbours, doctors, notary publics and attorneys, and the receipts from local businesses for his funeral submitted for reimbursement by his daughter after he died.
Local names include:

Thomas S. Steele Jr, Thorp (son-in-law)
John F. Greve, Abbotsford (saloonkeeper & son-in-law)

All following of Thorp:

Geo. B. Parkhill (attorney & notary public)
F. D. Jackey (Physician)
John Melbinger (gravedigger)
M. Wiltgen (undertaker)
W. Wolf (pharmacist?)
Glasshof & Morgan (livery)
Geo. Burke (notary public)
F.O Garrison (Garrison Bros. Real Estate & Banking)
N. R. McCutcheon (Notary public)
W. B. Seldon M.D.
T. O. Mosher (notary public)
Harry Philpott (notary public)
P. McKittrick, M.D.
C.S. Lusk (notary public)

Affidavits:

Hixon M. Mead (brother of daughter-in-law)
Martin Zeaman
Peter Schroeder
James Connor
Daniel S. Francis
H.J. Fessender
W. E. Poppe
F.F. Murphy
H. M. Serbole
M. Deney
Gustav Schmidt
Victor Fellows
J.C. Duffy
A.O. Rhea
Wm. Wagner
R.H. Talford
L.O. Garnson
Tobias Voegeli
Frederick K. Rossman
Martin Liske
Daniel Lindemann
Henry Lindemann
Christopher Burkhardt
Joseph Dallindorfer
Chas. Partridge

Some of these affidavits have personal information and background. I would be happy to share information with other researchers if anyone has an interest in any of these names.
