The unnamed grandfather of Jonathan and Charlie Barnavelt, and great-grandfather of Lewis Barnavelt, was an American Civil War veteran (The House with a Clock in its Walls, 24).  His name appears on the New Zebedee Civil War Monument (The Figure in the Shadows, 19).


John Bellairs's paternal great-grandfather, James Henry Bellairs (1841-1929), fought in the Civil War[1], and would have been a mere 20 years old when the war began.
