I was doing a search for Ashley Carlisle at Google Books and I found:

Tamerson Binns Collection
Transcript of Carlisle-Binns Genealogy
Tamerson Binns was my grand-aunt and the daughter of Isaac Ashley Carlisle and Sarah Ann "Anna" Camfield.
So I went straight to the Western Michigan University website and found the Tamerson Binns Collection in the Regional History Catalog.
Summary: Typescript of Carlisle-Binns genealogy. Civil War letters from Ashley Carlisle, Michigan 2nd Cavalry to family, 1863-1864. The Reunion, and Extra, May 1889 (a published listing of surviving soldiers, Sparta, MIchigan, incomplete). Ledger and cash book from Binn’s Business Records, Binn’s Magnet Store, Buchanan, Michigan, 1883-1888, 1928-1951. Miscellaneous material relative to Grand Army of the Republic, Buchanan.
It also references "Thirty-four photographs transferred to Photograph Collection."
Holy Cow! Yipee-Yi-Yay!! Whoo-whoo!
I was so excited to find the Civil War letters between Daniel and Hannah Carlisle that I didn't stop to wonder why there were no letters from Ashley!
Now I have to contact the library. I see another trip to Michigan on the horizon.
