Do you have, within your tree, a man named Hiram Howland (b. 8/23/1834 d. 8/2/1896)?
Hiram served in the 106th PA Infantry Co E during the civil war. He migrated to WI and in 1880-1881 married my g. grandmother Alice
Mary Chase. Hiram was a farmer in Chippewa Co, WI. He and Alice had 6 children - 5 raised to adulthood. He is buried in Evergreen Cemetery Menomonie, WI. Other than this I know nothing about him. Do you have a Hiram in your tree - or out of perhaps PA (Philly is where the 106th organized)area? Thanks. Sherrie SellMorencivet@c3net.com
