- The History of Fulton Co. IL lists a Thomas A. Brice on p. 742 which could be my Thomas Henry PRICE. He told his grandchildren that he served in the civil war as a drummer boy.
- He was in Fountain Co. Indiana in 1860 census but it is possible that he came to Illinois and enlisted.
- He also told his grandchildren that a congressman in Glenwood, CO was actively trying to get him a pension. He was a member of the GAR in Colorado. I have not tried to get a pension file for him because I do not think he ever received one but would like to find out if any of the lists associated with the 103rd Regiment has him named.
