Mrs. Hendrick's father, Daniel C. Keeslar and his two brothers, were members of the famous 9th N. Y. Heavy Artillery. Daniel first enlisted and served three years, and participated in nearly all of the battles of this county. He reenlisted and was killed in the battle before Petersburg. His brother, Simeon, died from a wound received in the same battle; and Alfred died in the hospital from typhoid fever. In honor of these three brave men the Col. Dutton G. A. R.
