From a tintype
8th MO Infantry (US)
Company F

The following information comes from Mike Alexander, who lives in the state of Washington.
Mike himself is a re-enactor, with the 4th US at Fort Steilacoom WA,
and he likes to keep up with what the 8th Missouri is doing:

The picture at the top of the page is my great-grandfather Joseph Pope.   I believe the photo was originally taken from a tintype.   He mustered into Company D, and was transferred to company B.   Private Joseph Pope was wounded at Shiloh and spent the rest of his time as an orderly in a field hospital.

After the Civil War he moved to Seattle and was a carpenter who built homes.   His daughter May G. Pope married my grandfather Ira Alexander, and my father Kenneth Alexander was their son.

Joseph Pope was born on May 24, 1843, in Cleveland, Ohio.
He married Mary Lou Bolton in Clinton, Missouri, on September 04, 1868.
He was a member of the Stevens Post No. 1 of the G.A.R. in Seattle.
He died on August 29, 1924.
He is buried in the Grand Army of the Republic Cemetery in Seattle.
