BATDORF, John H John Harrison BATDORF
Not on the original list. Civil War Soldiers and Sailors System does not list this soldier in the 120th OH. There was a John MOTTER in the 102nd OH.
I am leaving this soldier, Franklin HARGRAVE, here in case someone else gets the information from the pension card at Footnote.com and comes here looking for Franklin at this site.
Not part of the 120th OVI and removed from list:
Incorrect Pension card for Franklin HARGRAVE: Co A, 120th OH Inf. Widow Rebecca A. HARGRAVE applied for widow's pension on 11 Jun 1914. But it is noted "Declaration: held in Law Division.]
Thanks to Debbie for this research at the National Archives!
