Archibald Shotwell

My Great Grandad, Archibald Shotwell was born in London, Ontario and signed up as a replacement for a rich Detroiter named Chittenden. He mustered out of Detroit. He did not muster until January 1865 and saw little if any action with the 24th Michigan Infantry. He was in the honor guard at Lincoln's funeral in Springfield.

After the war he returned to London and lived there until 1880. He then settled across the lake from Sarnia in a city called Au Gres, Michigan. I believe to acquire his veterans land right. His other brothers and Mother came with him. His mom and dad alond with 8 brothers and sisters all lived in Canada during the war.
