Looking for data on Civil War veteran William
Bierbower who served with the 87th Pennsylvania
Volunteer Infantry. The unit mustered in
York in September 1861. I am writing a
history of the regiment and seek firsthand
accounts by the veterans. I am also building
a database of personal data on each soldier
and need your help in that huge task.
William Bierbower (b. Jan 14, 1840; d. Feb 13, 1899)
was a tinsmith from York. I know that in 1889,
he lived in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
