At 2pm on 5 April 1859, their familiy took a boat down the Connecticut River and arrived in New York City the following morning.

     On 16 July 1863. George Edgar Weston writes to his father, George Weston, in Pulaski, Michigan. "You can scarcely imagine the joy, which the news of the fall of Vicksbury occasioned in the soldiers today .... it made them feel good.... also, there is a rumor out, that Morgan has been captured up in Indiana. It would be a joke on John if it was so, and it seems as if it ought to be so. We have about 10 to 12,000 of us good Cav, as ever was here, under the Command of Gen. Stanly, the 4th Mich. is here .....Frank has been groaning around with a bile, for a day or two, but it is getting better now, John is tough and hearty, but complains that he has not heard from his father, for a long time, he is detailed down town to guard cattle that we have captured. Frank is asleep in our day tent all doubled up as if he was on a wide bed, and it was all his, and your coresspondant is sitting on the ground in the shade of a mulberry tree writing and thinking of home, and whether they would like to see him there or not, at any rate he would risk it if he could go there.
     How is wheat coming in this year, and how are the crops in general. Tell James, that we are looking for a letter from him everyday, and that we must not calculate that Augusta writes for both of them. Tell the boys I would like to write to them, but I have very little time, and less paper for all such things are left back with the train. Give my love to Mother, Brothers & Sisters and accept a large share for yourself. This from your son E. Weston."4
