Want to find relatives of Jean Baptiste Turpin. (1844-1927)
From what I have found, he was the longest living veteran of the Civil War from Mahnomen County. He died July 25, 1927. The Son's of the Civil War are planning to honor the last Civil War veteran of each county in Minnesota. Our County Ceremony is planned for July 16, 2022. at the St. Michael Cemetery, Mahnomen. The public is welcome to attend. Several families on ancestry.com have him in their family tree. If interested in attending the ceremony, I will post more later with times
