Some of the most exciting things we know about Dr John G. Munsell are found in three letters he wrote to a friend during the Civil War.

The three letters are now owned by John Angevine who inherited them from his father. John has put considerable time into not only transcribing the content of the letters,  but also putting them and their contents into historical context. This was accomplished by a remarkable amount of sociological, genealogical, Civil War and historical research.

Below he describes his fabulous work:

 

Three Letters Written

By

Dr. John G. Munsell To Mr. Angevine

July 1863 – August 1864

 

    This document contains the images and transcripts of three letters written by John G. Munsell over the period of July 1863 to August 1864. The recipient of all three letters is a "Brother Angevine" that resides in Pataskala, Licking County Ohio. I am unsure which member of the Angevine family this is, but John G. Munsell’s (JGM) would have been contemporaries with Edwin Angevine, b. Dec 1830 in NY; Hiram R. Angevine, b. Jun 1834 Harrison Twp; or Frank Angevine, b. Nov 1841Granville Twp. The letters came into my possession through my father Robert C. Angevine, who received them from the estate of my Aunt, Dorothy Angevine.

    The letters are dated July 6th 1863, Nov 5th 1863, and Aug 2nd 1864. There are no envelopes or other supporting documentation. They are in generally fair condition with folds, creases, yellowing, and minor stains and tears. The writing is still legible, although some parts require a magnifying glass to better discern what is written.
