Thomas Franklin Patterson is second from the left in the first
row (Capt. Co. D, 85th Illinois Vols.). Next to him and sporting a long
beard is Stephen Brown, a brother-in-law of Thomas; he was a Lt. in the 25th
Missouri Vols. If you can help identify the other people in this photo,
including the other Civil War veterans, please contact Tom Jones at
