Does anyone out there have any CDV's, pictures or any other information relative to the Custer 7th Cavalry Band and in particular Private Edmund Burlis. He was my great-grandfather. He was on detached service with the rest of the band at the Powder Reive encampment where they were taking care of the wounded from LBH. Any information would be appreciated.
Burlis, PVT Edmond—b. Klingnau, Switzerland, 19 Mar 1848 – d. St. Louis, MO, 22 Oct 1924. Headquarters: band. Private. Hazel eyes, dark hair, dark complexion; 5’ 6” tall. Remained at Powder River Depot. Presence confirmed on June Returns.
That is all I have. Sorry I cannot be of more help. There is a fellow I know of in England who many have more information. I will contact him and see if he does.
