CUMPSTON Jacob; K; 1st Reg Vet Inf Vols West Virginia Archives  This site gives details of  UNCLAIMED UNION CIVIL WAR MEDALS A-L AT THE WEST VIRGINIA STATE ARCHIVES.

Each soldier is identified by NAME; RANK; COMPANY; REGIMENT OR BATTERY

In order to claim an ancestor’s medal, a claimant must submit his or her line of descent from the veteran along with documentation to support this line of descent. To establish line of descent, claimants must include copies of primary sources, including birth, death, marriage, will, deed, military, census, Bible records, etc. Old letters, diaries, marriage announcements, or obituaries may also prove helpful in verifying a descendant’s claim. Please note that a family chart submitted without further documentation is not sufficient.

Please, can anyone help me claim Jacob?
