I have a picture of my ggrandfather William Miles Kennedy, and also a couple of toombstone photos. It says on the following that he deserted and I still have not gotten proof that he did not, but we know he didnt and I guess that is all that matters at this point :)

Do you have Pvt. Kennedy's CMSR (Compiled Military Service Record)? I have seen mistakes before, but his CMSR could shed some light on it. As for photos of the men, they are always welcome, with my thanks.
