Civil War Ring Returned-- Part 1

From the April 8, 2013, WFMZ (Pa) News "Civil War ring found in Virginia given to owner's descendant in Berks" by Kevin Fitzsimmons.

John Blue found a Civil War ring using a metal detector in Virginia which had the name Levi Schlegel on it.  He did some research and eventually found a descendant in Reading, Pennsylvania.  Ernest Schlegel is a trustee at the Reading Public Library.

The two met Tuesday at Levi Schlegel's garve and the ring was returned to his family after all these years.

Levi Schlegel was born in 1841 and lived until 1932.

I'll need to find out some more on this story.
