Thank you so much for the information and the suggestions for further research. I tried to attach the Civil War letters. But Ancestry won’t accept PDF files for attachment to this response. If you would like to send you email address I would be glad to forward them. Several of the letters are complete but I have some pages that don't appear to go together. I have ended my subscription to Ancestry.com for the summer as I spend the summers in the mountains and am away from internet service, so I don’t get to do much work on family history during the summers. Otherwise I would just attach the letter to my tree and you could download them.
I have some information from simple research on-line about Stephen P Gano's military service and the wound he received at the battle of Fair Oaks.
This search has been a complete dead end for me and you have given me some direction. I would very much appreciate copies of the pages you mentioned, even if it is based on speculation.

Posting here may help others with their search but if you would like to contact me directly please feel free to do so.
Thanks again for you help
