and Goshen Hill. Seated on right is Tom Edwards.
From Kate Swaldo of Wainwright:
Before my grandfather, John Haas, began delivering mail in the Goshen area, he had
served in the Civil War. He really wasn’t old enough, but he wanted to serve his country
and so he lied about his age so he could enlist. His two brothers also were serving in
the Civil War. While serving, all three brothers fought together in one battle and sadly,
John’s two brothers were killed.
