Hi, unfortunately I don't have photos of him or any of my family - except for my parents. There are probably family members of Francis M. Durvin still living in the Richmond, VA area - I will try to contact them - but I live in CA and have not had any communication with them. I was able to get his 'Final Statement' from the National Archives - this contains about 8 pages of information on his personal affects and belongings - and a statement that his body was turned over to his brother for burial in Virgina. There was also a notation that his peritonitis had been contracted in the line of duty. I would like to find out more - there are medical records of the period for Ft. Sidney also in the Archives and perhaps in Nebraska - I just haven't been able to get copies as yet. I do have a photo of his headstone (from find-a-grave). If I get any other information (including a photo) I would be happy to provide it to you.
