Hilas R. Johnson

 

  He served in the 33rd Regiment, Ohio Infantry, Company F.  He entered service in 1861 when the 33rd was organized in Portsmouth, OH (August-Sept) and mustered out in Louisville, KY July 12, 1865.  I believe they were volunteers and that they were very active in the Civil War in KY, TN, GA (including March to the Sea, siege of Atlanta and Siege of Savannah),Campaign of the Carolinas, NC, VA, Washington DC and then back to KY.    I do not know how much action  my Great-Grandfather saw in this campaign.  He began as a Private and ended as a Sergeant.    I got this information from a Civil War site on the internet --- There was never a word mentioned of his service in the Civil War in our family.  Not one story, no pictures, pieces of clothing, nothing.  I have no doubt that it is him.  This is a very small town and I don't think anyone else  would have that name.  Everything fits.
