Levi Howland

Among Thomas Cation Duncan’s papers, I found this card (calling card size).  It dates from the Civil War.
howlandThe writing:
1st [2nd crossed out] Lieut Howland
Co. E  1st Wis Cav
The photo has been cut out and pasted on this card.

And on the reverse:

Printed:  Mrs. Phoebe Dell. Hayburn.
Written:  L. Howland 2nd Lieut
Co E  1st Wis Cav  three months
since 1st Lieut – Co A  1st Wis
presented to Capt of Co C

T. C. Duncan was in the 1st Wisconsin Cavalry with Lt. Howland.  I do not know who Mrs. Hayburn is.
This is part of my “Lost & Found” series – things that belong to someone else’s family.
