From the donor, Carolyn Johnson:
I have been doing research on my family and have a great grand uncle who served (albeit briefly) as a private in the 120th NY Vols - Jan 4 , 1864 - August 10, 1864. And I have 2 pictures (sepia I believe) that I thought you might like to see. One is my uncle Smith Phillips and the other I believe to be a boyhood neighbor Alexander Temple. They both enlisted on Jan 4, 1864 in Kingston, NY. Alexander Temple survived the war. Smith Phillips is buried under the wrong headstone in Annapolis MD cemetery. I am trying to rectify this error.
My family believes that Smith Phillips is # 1 and Alexander Temple is #2.
