Solon suffered from the effects of heat stroke.  George Saltzman verified in an affidavit that "on or about the 16 of May 1864 at or near Tyler in the State of Texas while marching to Confederate Prison he was affected by Sun stroke."  Jefferson Etling said that Solon had sunstroke and stayed under his rubber blanket near their quarters in the prison for 3 or 4 weeks.  According to another letter, Solon continued to have problems from the sunstroke after the war with attacks of dizziness, nervousness, blindness and severe pain.  His attacks of vertigo could last 3 to 10 days at a time.  His ears were also affected and he was partially hard of hearing, a problem which started at the time of his sun stroke.  [7 May 1889: Dr. Hugh Hart of Wooster examined Solon and said that he was only able to hear the tick of a watch, that should be heard at 24 inches, when it was in contact with his right ear; and only when firmly pressed in the left ear.]

APPALLING DEATH----Coroner Solon Boydston Killed at Orrville
The Fair was over, and hundreds of visitors to Orrville were at the railroad station last Friday evening waiting for trains to take them home.  It was gloomy weather, a cloudy sky and dim lights flickered here and there in the railroad yard.  Along the platform in front of the track thronged the crowd, when about 7:30 o'clock, on the platform of the C., A. & C. line, a scuffle took place between some men, which by those who saw it was supposed to be a fight.
  Just then a shifting engine came slowly along, and two of the men were knocked, thrown or fell in front of the engine, which in an instant was fatally upon them.  No one appeared to know who they were or saw exactly how it was done, and many near by saw nothing of it at all.  The engineer felt by the motion of the machine that something was wrong and promptly stopped.  The crowd rushed forward and found a man lying beside the track badly injured, the wheels having run over both legs.  He was carried to the platform where he told them another man was under the engine.  This was investigated, and on the track, wedged in between the fire box and driving wheels of the engine, was a dead body, crushed, mangled and disfigured beyond recognition.
  The injured man was removed to the Hurd House, where Dr. Grill amputated one of his legs.  He gave his name as John Sweeny, of 79 Seneca street, Cleveland, which is said not to be true.
  In the meantime the dead body, which was supposed to be that of a tramp, was placed in the baggage room at the railroad depot.  For nearly an hour it lay there while persons were looking for the County Coroner, Solon Boydston, to hold an inquest. He could not be found, and Mr. J. W. Stansbury, Mr,. Boydston's partner in the cabinet and undertaking business, had the body removed to their establishment up street.  It was placed in the undertaking room and the door locked.
  Search for Mr. Boydston was resumed.  His unaccountable absence was strange and mysterious, and now some apprehensions and misgivings were felt.  A citizen finally suggested that perhaps it was no tramp that was killed.  Full of forebodings they had Mr. Stansbury unlock the door of the undertaking room, and began an examination of the remains deposited there.  Uncovering the feet, Mr. Stansbury was horrified to recognize his partner's shoes, and in a moment more his watch, masonic pin, officer's badge and other articles, which fully established the fact that the body of Solon Boydston was before them.  The sad news was soon heralded over Orrville, creating a great shock and the saddest sorrow in the community.  D. Y. Landis, undertaker at Wooster, was that night summoned to prepare the body for the grave.
  How he came to his death is not accurately known, whether by murder or accident.  The most reliable account appears to be that during the Fair Mr. Boydston was on the police force.  In line of duty he had that evening gone with other officers to Overton's Tile Factory near the depot to disperse and arrest a lot of tramps who had taken possession in defiance of the owner's protests.  Boydston had captured the man Sweeny and was taking him to the lock up, going by way of the depot, and when in the crowd it is said that Sweeny, recognizing a confederate there, gave him a signal for assistance, and at same time struggled with Boydston to escape; but the officer held to his man and threw him on the platform, when it is said the confederate was seen to strike or push Boydston to escape; but the officer held to his man and threw him on the platform, when it is said the confederate was seen to strike or push Boydston just as the shifting engine was passing, and holding on to Sweeny he fell or was thrown in front of the engine, which in an instant crushed him to death and hurled Sweeney several feet away, injuring him as above stated.  It is reported that the alleged confederate was seen after the tragedy, but soon afterwards disappeared.  Sweeny claims that he did not know him.  Some heavy bruises were found on the back of Mr. Boydston's head, as if from blows, and not wounds inflicted by the engine.
  His age was 49 years, and at time of death he was the Coroner of Wayne county and was the candidate for second term on the Democratic ticket at the coming election.  He was well known throughout the county as a prominent citizen and business man of Orrville, a member of several Benevolent Orders, and a comrade of the Grand Army of the Republic, he having been a Sergeant in Co. A, 120th Regiment O.V.I.   As a man he was much esteemed, and few had more personal friends.  
He leaves a wife and two sons and two daughters, to whom much sympathy is given.  
  The funeral, which took place Monday afternoon, was the largest ever in Orrville.  All business was suspended and the whole community attended in respect for the dead, while many came in from the surrounding country and from other towns.  The offering of flowers was very large.  The officiating ministers were Rev. Delano Jeffries, Rev. D. M. Irvin, Rev. Beck and Rev. Booth.  The burial services were conducted by Wooster Commandery Knights Templar, of which the deceased was a charter member and present also were several Knights from Massillon.  The other organizations attending in a body were the Orrville Cedar Lodge of the Masonic Order, Knights of Pythias, Grand Army Post, Fire Department, Mayor and town officers.  The pall bearers were Sir Knights Geo. W. Barrett, Fred Dysie, Dr. S.P. Grill, of Orrville, E. D. McIntire, T.H. Eiser, of Wooster and J. A. Hackett, of Massillon.

"The 'Fort Wayne' again grounded and stuck fast for sometime.  This was 18 miles above Louisville, at which place we arrived at 5 P.M. and remained there until the next day, Nov 28, at 1 o'clock P.m.  We left Thomas Bucher, a member of our company, there in the hospital.  He had been unwell for two or three days previous.  He was not very bad, but owing to the fact that our boat was so crowded, and that it was impossible to make the sick comfortable, we thought it best to leave him there.  He was very willing to stop off.  We have not heard from him since."

History of Madison County, Iowa  Volume II, Dated 1915

     Joseph Comp is a retired farmer now living in Winterset but is still the owner of valuable property which affords him a generous annual income.  He was born in Wayne County, Ohio, March 12, 1842, while his parents were from Pennsylvania and his grandparents were natives of Germany.  Joseph Comp spent his boyhood days under the parental roof and attended the district schools.  He left home at the age of 21 making his way to Mercer County, Illinois, where he had an older brother living.  There he attended school for one winter, and he also worked at the carpenter's trade with his brother, being thus engaged until October, 1864 when, feeling that his duty to his country was paramount to all else, he enlisted as a member of Company I, Thirty-Sixth Illinois Volunteer Infantry, with which he served until the close of the war.  He was one of the troops recruited to fill out an old regiment and was honorably discharged in October, 1865, being mustered out at New Orleans.  He participated in the Battle of Franklin on the 30th of November, 1864, that of Nashville on the 15th and 16th of December and in various skirmishes.  He escaped without being wounded or taken prisoner and returned to his home with a creditable military record.
     When the war was over Mr. Comp again made his way to Mercer County, Illinois, and once more worked with his brother at the carpenter's trade.  Later he returned to Ohio, where he engaged in cultivating his father's farm until 1869.  He then came to Madison County and purchased 80 acres of wild prairie land in Douglas Township.  With his characteristic energy he begin to develop and improve that property and continuously followed farming for more than 41 years.  He paid $15 per acre for his original purchase, later bought 60 acres for $20 an acre and still later 160 acres at $30 per acre.
     He is today the owner of 300 acres worth $150 per acre.  Year after year he carefully tilled the soil, employing modern farming methods in the improvement of his place.  He was thus engaged until 1910 when he turned the farm over to his sons, and retired from business life, took up his abode in Winterset where he now has leisure for the enjoyment of those things which are to him a matter of interest and recreation.
     On the second of October, 1866, Mr. Comp was united in marriage in Wayne County, Ohio to Miss Savilla Johnston, a native of Wayne County, born November 13, 1843 and to them have been born six children; Ora, who died at the age of 18 years; George William, a resident farmer of Jackson Township; Walter J., who lives upon the home farm; Ira D., also a farmer of this county; Mabel, the wife of Samuel Hoeness, who carries on general farming in Jackson Township; Franklin W., who is also upon the home farm.
     Mr. Comp belongs to Pitzer Post, No. 55, G.A.R., of Winterset and greatly enjoys meeting with his old army comrades and recounting the incidents of military life in the south.  He and his wife are members of the Methodist church and their lives have been lived in accordance with it's teachings.  Mr. Comp has now passed the seventy-third milestone on life's journey and he deserves a rest which has come to him, for it is the merited outcome and reward of persistent, earnest and honorable labor.

Joseph M. Comp was
born at Smithville, Wayne County, Ohio, March 12, 1842 and died at his home in Winterset, September 6, 1919, aged 77 years , 5 months, 24 days.  When the war broke out, he was a strong young man of 22 and on October 8, 1862, he enlisted in Company I, 36th, IIIinois Voluntary Infantry.  Serving honorably until the close of the war, being discharged October 20, 1865.  On October 2, 1866 he was united in marriage to Savilla Johnston, who as a faithful and loving wife came with him to Madison County, Iowa on April 9, 1869, settling the following year on the old homestead known as "Comp's Corner", where for 45 years they labored faithfully together until January 13, 1909, when they removed to their present home in Winterset to spend the remaining days of their lives.  Mr. Comp was the father of six children, five of whom survived; George William, Walter W., Ira D., Frank W., and one daughter Mrs. S.G. Hoeness, all of this vicinity.  One daughter, Ora I. preceded her father in death twenty-eight years ago. Forty-three years ago, he was converted and united with the West Star Methodist Episcopal church, being one of the early supports and stand-bys of that organization, taking an active part in Sunday School and church work, and remaining a faithful and constant member of the  same until his death.  Coming to Iowa at an early age he helped to build up the vicinity where he lived from the primitive stage to a place of home and happiness, enduring the hardships that went with pioneer life.  Five weeks ago, he was stricken down from which he gradually sank day by day, and for some days and the end was hourly expected, yet through the whole time he was a patient and cheerful sufferer.  The deceased was a member of the Pitzer Post and the Evening Star lodges and was held in high esteem by his fellow members.  A kind and loving father, a true friend, a honorable, an upright citizen has passed from this life to the home beyond the skies eternal in the heavens.

Portrait from History of the Lawyers of Wayne County, Ohio, from 1812 to 1900 by Benjamin Douglas, 1900
Page 254
"He possessed an excellent English education, and was one of the most successful school teachers in Wayne county."

History of Wayne County Ohio by Ben Douglass 
Pg 444 "Joseph H. Downing, a native of Belmont county, Ohio, removed with his parents to Wayne county in the autumn of 1826.  The following season the family settled upon a farm in Wayne Township, three miles north-east of Wooster, where the subject of this sketch remained with his parents until their deaths in 1838 and 1839."  [Note:  there was a William Downing in Putlney Twp, Belmont Co OH in 1830 census.]

Page 445 "In 1843 he entered the Canaan Academy, where he profitably devoted two years to the study of Latin, philosophy, mathemetics [sic], etc., his determination to take the full collegiate course only being thwarted by a general failure of health."

"In the year 1848 he commenced the study of law, under the care and direction of Hon. Ezra Dean, of Wooster.  In 1853 he was elected to the Ohio Legislature, and was a member of the House of Representatives during the session of 1854 -- there being but one session during his term.  From the spring of 1854 to 1860 he was engaged in teaching school, and during the latter year he was admitted to the practice of law, by the Supreme Court of the State.  In May of that year he opened an office in Wooster and began practice, forming a partnership with Ben Douglass."

"In August, 1862, he was appointed Captain by the Governor of the State, and commissioned to recruit a company under one of the startling calls, for '300,000 more.'  In seven days precisely from the date of his commission, his company was full and subject to orders.  On the 29th of August, 1862, he took his company to 'Camp Mansfield,' Ohio, and on the 14th of October he was mustered into the United States service, as Captain of Company 'A,' 120th O.V.I."

After the battles of Chickasaw Bayou and Arkansas Post:  "As a consequence of exposure and subjection to the malarial influences which decimated regiments, brigades, and divisions of the army in that locality during the winter of 1862-63, he became prostrated and so seriously diseased as to render him wholly unfit for military duty, whereupon, in the spring of 1863 he was honorably discharged from the service.  He returned home, wasted and emaciated; a mental and physical wreck; a living, breathing skeleton; with an imperfect recognition of his own family and friends, and by physicians and all who saw him,pronounced a hopelessly prostrated and doomed man."  [But he returned to health enough to reenter his profession, although he was bothered by malaria for the rest of his life.]

Private Franks was age 23 when he entered service.  No other information given in the Ohio roster book.

Death:  13 Aug 1912, Noble County
Cemetery: Cosperville Cem, Elkhart, Noble Co IN
There is a photo of his grave at Find a Grave, but it has no indication of military service.  Family Search says that Abram FRANKS born in OH in 1839 married Mariah BUTTERMORE on 1 Jan 1864 in Noble County IN.  It says he died 13 Aug 1912 in Noble County and is buried in Cosperville Cemetery, Elkhart, Noble County, IN.  
He is listed at this site in that cemetery, but no mention of Civil War regiment:
http://gen.nobleco.lib.in.us/Cemeteries/Csprville.htm

I haven't found this soldier in the Pension Index.

The webmaster of a fine site on the Franks family says that the Abraham/Abram FRANKS in her datatbase [and the man identified below] could be the correct person but she has no evidence at this time.  She says that the Abraham below was already in Indiana in 1863, so if he served in the 120th it was for a very short time.  This is probably why there is no other information given in the roster book.

HARGRAVE, Franklin

Incorrect Pension card:  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.]

I am leaving this soldier on the list in case someone else gets the information from the pension card at Footnote.com and comes here looking for Franklin at this site.

Thanks to Debbie for this research at the National Archives!

Franklin L. Hargrave enrolled at Camp Delaware, Delaware Co OH, on 11 Sep 1862 as a Private, in Co A, 121st OVI.  He was discharged 8 Jun 1865 at Washington DC.  He was 5 ft 7.5 inches tall, sandy hair, black eyes, sandy complexion.  He was  a farmer, born 27 Feb 1837 at Davidson Co NC.  After the war he lived at Logan Co OH from 1865 to 1874 and at New Haven, Allen Co IN from 1874 to present.   He was getting a pension of $12 per month.  [1 Mar 1907.]
According to footnote, Hargrave Franklin A served in the 120 OVI, Company A. No numbers on his pension card, just a note that declaration held in law division.  Footnote also has a Hargrave Franklin L that served in the 121 OVI company A
According to Ancestry, Hargrave, Franklin L. served in the 121 OVI, Company A.
(The footnote and ancestry cards are different indexes.  Footnote is an earlier index and wasn't always maintained in the end. This is per National Archive Staff.)
I had alot of help from a member of the archive staff on this one.  They were really interested in the note on the footnote card.  I requested pension files for him under both units.  Only one pension file and that application lists his service as with the 121 OVI.  On advice of the archival staff, I also checked his carded medical records.  All medical care was received as a 121 OVI soldier.  Payments to his widow also noted his service in the 121.  No CMSR for a Hargrave in the 120 OVI.
Conclusion of the archival staff is that the 120 on the footnote index is a typo.  It should have been 121.  No explanation of the different middle initial.   As he was not a soldier of the 120 OVI, I did not gather much data on him.  I did copy a few pages with marriage, kids and death info.  If you want more details on him, let me know.
Now the "declaration held in law division".  This was looked up for me as no one was familiar with the term.  When the gov't suspected fraud with an application, or by the lawyer the application would be sent the the law division.   There were several legal rulings in this file that I haven't seen in others.  His widow had applied for a pension due to the soldier dying from a war injury.  This was not true.  Later lawyer explain it was an error, and not fraud.  She was entitled to the pension due to being a widow and the claim of the soldier dying from a war injury was an error or misunderstanding by the first lawyer.  Eventually it was all sorted out.

W. C. HENRY, M. D., physician and surgeon, Aurora, was born in Wayne County, Ohio, February 1, 1841, and is of Scotch-Irish extraction; his ancestors settled in the United States early in the history of the country.  During his boyhood he attended the public school, where he acquired a knowledge of the usual English branches, including the higher mathematics, and also studied Greek and Latin, besides paying some attention to elementary anatomy, with a view to entering the medical profession.  At the age of twenty-one he left school and enlisted for three years as a private in Company A, One Hundred and Twentieth Ohio Volunteer Infantry.  He was soon promoted to the rank of sergeant, and participated in Grant's campaign against Vicksburg and its approaches, until after the fall of the place in 1863.  While in the army, his health having become impaired, he was sent home on sick leave, at the expiration of which he reported at Indianapolis, and was detailed to hospital duty, in which he was engaged during the remainder of his term of service.  While thus employed he gave special attention to his duties, with the view of making the profession of medicine his vocation in life, and on leaving the service immediately entered the Vermilion Institute at Hayesville, Ohio.  There he pursued a preparatory course for two years, after which he studied medicine with Drs. Baker and Barrett, of Wooster, Ohio.  Subsequently he attended two courses of lectures at the Miami Medical College, Cincinnati, Ohio, where he graduated in 1870.  He first practiced at Tipton, Mo., about eighteen months, and then removed to Aurora, Ind., where he has since been one of the most successful physicians.  His course of study included special instruction on treatment of diseases of the eye and ear, under Dr. E. Williams, and he has since given much attention to this branch of the profession.  During the prevalence of the epidemic in the State in 1874, Dr. Henry contributed a valuable paper on trichinae to local journals, which attracted much attention at the time and was favorably commented on by the profession generally.  Immediately after his graduation in 1870 he married Miss Kate Lindsay, daughter of John F. Lindsay, contractor and builder of Cincinnati, Ohio.  Dr. Henry enjoys the confidence and esteem of the public as a skillful and painstaking physician.  He is an active member of Dearborn County Medical Society and of the Indiana State Medical Society, having been for the past five years secretary of the former body.  He is also city physician of Aurora, surgeon, by appointment, of the eastern division of the Ohio and Mississippi Railroad, and has been for two years member of the city council, in which he takes an active and prominent place.  In politics Dr. Henry is a Democrat.  He is a member of Dearborn Lodge No. 442, F. and A. M.; Aurora Chapter No. 13, and Aurora Commandery No. 17, K. T., also K. of H., in which he is dictator of his lodge.  He is active member and elder in the Presbyterian Church.

Hardesty's Historical and Geographical Encyclopedia [Wayne county Ohio version] page 492 East Union Township section:
"Isaac D. Huntsberger enlisted at Wooster, August 20, 1862, and at Camp Mansfield, October 17th, was mustered into Company A, 120th Ohio Volunteer Infantry.  After serving at Covington, the regiment was hurried forward to Memphis, and down the Mississippi under Sherman to take part in his movement against Vicksburg.  Its first battle was Chickasaw Bayou, next Arkansas Post, where companies A and F led the storming part that swept up to the fort and took it.  Their next service was the inglorious canal digging at Youngs Point, where Mr. Huntsberger was detailed to act as orderly over those assigned from his company.  They also helped to bridge the bayou at Richmond, Louisiana. Thence moved under Grant toward Vicksburg, and at the bombarding of Grand Gulf Mr. Huntsberger was ill, and forced to remain an inactive spectator.  He rejoined his regiment in time for the battle at Thompsons Hill, but continued with the pioneer corps until Vicksburg was reached, helping to clear the obstructions for the planting of the batteries for the battles of Champion Hills, Big Black River Bridge, and for the passage of the army to the siege.  Before Vicksburg, with this corps he was digging trenches, building breastworks and planting guns.  The day the Stars and Stripes floated again over that city, was the anniversary of his birth, and will ever be considered by him the proudest day of his life. With the pioneer corps he went with Grant to Jackson, and was with the regiment when it was transferred to Louisiana, where companies A and F were still singled out for special service against bushwhackers.  When on the Red River expedition, the City Belle was run ashore at Snaggy Point, Mr. Huntsberger was one of the first to jump ashore, May 3, 1864.  He was wounded in the heel, just as he landed, and was made prisoner.  After some hours his wound was dressed, and the next day he was taken to Chaneyville prison, Louisiana, where he was held one and a half months, and saw most of those captured with him die.  He was then paroled, sent to Alexandria [Louisiana], and from there into our lines.  By New Orleans and St. Louis he returned to Columbus, and there he was discharged from the service February 10, 1865.  
Jonas and Catharine (Dill) Huntsberger were parents of Isaac D., who was born in Cumberland county, PA, July 4, 1837.  In East Union township, Wayne county, Ohio, October 19, 1865, he married Elizabeth, daughter of Jacob and Anna (Gans) Kurtz.  She is a native of this township, born January 31, 1841, and their children were born here: Ira K., October 17, 1866; Harvey H., August 7, 1868; Anna E., August 24, 1870; Benjamin D., May 8, 1872; Bertha M., April 13, 1874; Elsie L., June 22, 1877; John W. and William N., August 27, 1879; Fannie G., July 22, 1883.  Farming is Mr. Huntsberger's occupation, and East Union is his postoffice address.  His brother Jonas was in service and drowned at the explosion of the Sultana in the Mississippi river.  His wife's brother, Benjamin F. Kurtz, died in the service, at Milliken's Bend, April 16, 1863."  [See Benjamin Kurtz of this company, below.]

Looking at the census records in 1900 I think sons Ira, John and William went west to Colorado and Kansas.

Captain Isaiah Jones Dead

A Brif [sic] Outline of His Life and Official Career.

  Last Tuesday Sheriff Jones received a letter from the superintendent of the Western Washington hospital at Steilacoom [on coast of Puget Sound in Pierce county WA]  informing him of the death of his father, Captain Isaiah Jones, who was taken there for treatment about five years ago, from Shaw island.
 The death of Captan Jones takes from us a unique and somewhat remarkable character.  Springing from old Virginia stock, he was born in the state of Ohio in 1829, where he grew to manhood, was married and had two children.  About the breaking out of the war, his wife died and he enlisted in an Ohio regiment of volunteers and at once went to the front.  During the seige of Vicksburg he was stricken with the camp disease so prevailent [sic] among the soldiers at that section, and by the order of General Grant, whose notice he had already attracted by his gallantry, he was discharged and sent home, as it was supposed, to die; but sustained by a constitution as strong and unyielding as was his own personal character, he so far recovered as to be able to re-enlist.  This time in a Missouri regiment gotten up in Caldwell county, Missouri, where his parents had located during his absence.  When the companies were organized he was elected captain of Co. "B," I think, which company he commanded till the close of the war, taking an active part in the gurrilla [sic] warfare that was so sanguinary in the southern and southwestern part of that state, as well as several general engagements.  The notorious James and Younger boys, Bill Anderson and Quantrell were the famous leaders of the bands of bushwhackers that roamed over the country leaving a trail of blood from the forks of the Grand river on the north to Arkansas on the south and west into Kansas, celebrating their last raids into the latter state by the burning of Lawrence and murdering of large number if its citizens.  It was with the prisoners here taken that report said immediately afterwards that Cole Younger tested the power of the Springfield rifle by standing a number of men up in a row and seeing how many he could shoot through, killing eight.  This gurrilla warfare was carried on by small bodies of men on both sides, and like the enemy, the federal troops were forced to do much of their marching in the night, lying concealed during the daytime.  In this, Captain Jones was in his element; as fearless and brave as any of the leaders of the marauding bands he was at home around the campfire and shrank from no hardships of danger.  Cole Younger and his band soon tired of facing such a foe and moved south into Arkansas, while Bill Anderson was killed and his command annihilated.  In recognition of his service the governor of Missouri commissioned Captian Jones as lieutenant-colonel.  Disease, however, had fastened upon him and when the war closed he located on a farm, broken in health.  The James and Youngers, as soon as peace came, turned their attention to bank robbing.  This was done in broad daylight by shooting down all who opposed them.  One of the banks in Richmond, Ray county, which joined Caldwell on the south, was thus robbed and several of the citizens, including the deputy sheriff, being killed.  The bank in Gallaton [Gallatin in Daviess County], in the county joining Caldwell on the north, was robbed, or attempted to be robbed, in the same manner, the president and cashier being shot down in cold blood and a retreat effected before the citizens could rally.  This was in 1867.  A reigh of terror existed, every country town was in a fever of excitement and fear and men who sought the office of Sheriff, especially in Caldwell county, joining the home of the James boys, were not so plentiful as they are today.  Of course, Captain Jones was the man for the place.  He was nominated and elected and peace and order was enjoyed during his official career.  Shortly after his election the grand jury found an indictment against a desperate character, and a warrant for his arrest was given the new sheriff.  The man was known to be always armed to the teeth and the Captain's friends advised him to take a posse; but ignoring assistance and wholly unarmed, he hunted up his man, walked directly to him and laying his hand on him told him his errand and arrested him without the least difficulty.  So much for his nerve.
 Although an uneducated man, he was one of the best political speakers in northern Missouri and often met in public discussion with the leading politicians in the state.  As a farmer he had considerable money.  Strictly honest himself, he believed others to be so, sometimes to his detriment.
 His second wife was Miss Etta Stevens, by whom he raised quite a family, all of whom are residents of the Sound; Newton, our present sheriff, Grant and Ernest living in San Juan county; the widow, two youngest children and one married daughter, Mrs. Carl Stewart, residing in Whatcom county.  His eldest daughter is a resident of Oklahoma, and his eldest son is dead.

  For several years he was a resident of this Island, but was a resident of Shaw Island when taken to the hospital, where he died on the ???12th last, at the age of 69? years.  

  "Life's fitful fever over, he sleeps well."

Hardesty's Historical and Geographical Encyclopedia [Wayne county Ohio version] page 495 Franklin Township section:
John R. McKinney--bade adieu to Ohio for nearly three years in the fall of 1862, and entered on the experience of a life in the field and in the enemy's country.  He enlisted at Wooster, 22 August, 1862, and at Camp Mansfield, October 14, 1862, was mustered into Company A, 120th Ohio Volunteer Infantry.  The regiment went to the front in time to take part in the two movements on Vicksburg, that under Sherman, including the battles of Chickasaw Bayou and Arkansas Post, and that under Grant, in which, a part of the 2d brigade, 3d division, 13th army corps, the 120th had its share in the fighting, and won its laurel with the victory.  In all these battles Mr. McKinney participated, and when the regiment was in Louisiana he was engaged in the battle of Richmond, then started with the regiment on the ill-fated Red River Campaign.  He was among the many captured at Snaggy Point, and he was one of the few who, after 13 months in the prison stockade at Camp Ford, Texas, were alive and able to move to the place of exchange.  His suffering in prison was like that elsewhere told in these pages
[see the History section]
; cold, starvation, and a cruel enemy all did their work. The exchange which released him was effected at the mouth of the Red river, and at New Orleans he took transport for St. Louis, from that city came to Columbus, and was there discharged from service, July 8, 1865. He was born in Washington county, Pennsylvania, November 12, 1843, the son of William and Jane (Ray) McKinney. He married in Ashland county, Ohio, June 2, 1870, Anna Christie, who was born in Butler county, Pennsylvania, July 16, 1846, and is the daughter of William and Elizabeth (Hall) Christie.  Their children are four living, one deceased:  William, born September 6, 1871; Fred S., February 1, 1873; Charles H., June 18, 1875; Jennie, August 13, 1878, died October 2, 1880; Laura, October 3, 1881.  Mr. McKinney has a farm in Franklin township and is also engaged in the profession of attorney.  He is a member of Given Post, No 133, G.A.R., at Wooster, and his post office address is Wooster.

Wooster Daily News, Monday, 14 April 1910, page 1:
J.R. McKinney Passes Away
Civil War Veteran Dies at Home on College Avenue on Sunday Afternoon
Another old soldier, a veteran of three years service in the Civil war, over a year of which was spent in a Rebel prison, answered the last roll call Sunday when John R. McKinney died at his home on College avenue, death coming at 8:30 p.m.
  Mr. McKinney has been in poor heath for several years, but up until the present winter he was always able to be around.  Catarrhal jaundice however, gained the upper hand after a long fight, and for several days it was seen that he could not live long.  Mr. McKinney was 65 years of age.
  He was born in
Washington county, PA., November 12, 1844,[the birth year actually seems to be 1843] and came to Wayne county with his parents in his youth.  They settled on a farm in Sugarcreek township. John McKinney enlisted as a private in Judge Downing's company, the 120th Ohio Volunteer Infantry, in August, 1862, and for three years was in the service of his country.  The last thirteen months of this service, he was in a Rebel prison at Camp Ford, Tyler, Texas, he having been taken prisoner at Snaggy Point on Red river at the time of the attack on boat in which the 120th regiment was going to the relief of General Banks.  His term in prison was full of the horrors so often dedcribed, and so impossible to exaggerate.  
  Mr. McKinney took part in all of the engagements of Grant in the opening of the Mississippi and for some months before the fall of Vicksburg he was especially assigned to the Pioneer Corps and therefore was almost constantly in the front.  Comrades speak well of Mr. McKinney as a soldier.  Only eighteen when he enlisted, he was bright and active, brave, and daring and, was always in command of a detail of soldiers.
   After the war he returned to Wayne county and came to Wooster where he read law.  He was elected Justice of the Peace of Wooster township which office he filled with his characteristic effectiveness.  He practiced law in Wooster until the death of his father, who in the meantime had moved to a farm south of the city.  Then he moved on the home farm, and remained there until about ten years ago, when he returned to the city.  During recent years he has been one of the active and prominent members of Given Post, G.A.R., and was Post Commander for one term.  He served as Adjutant of the Post under several Post Commanders, and for many years has been secretary of the regimental organization of the 120th O.V.I., all of which positions, he filled very capably.  Mr. McKinney attended school at the Hayesville Academy [Hayesville is in Ashland county], and there he met
Miss Anna Christy, who afterwards became his wife.  They lived together happily for many years, the wife passing away six years ago. Mr. McKinney was a member of the United Presbyterian church.  He is survived by four children, William McKinney, of Carlin, Nevada; Dr. Fred McKinney of Leetonia, O., Dr. Chas. McKinney, of Pittsburg, and Miss Laura McKinney, at home.  Funeral Tuesday afternoon at 1:30 o'clock, services in charge of Rev. Heron.

Dalton Gazette, Thursday 14 April 1910        [Died 10 Apr 1910]
Another Veteran Gone
J. R. McKinney, a civil war veteran died at his home in Wooster Sunday afternoon. Mr. McKinney was born in Pennsylvania,
moving to what is know as the McDowell farm west of Dalton in 1844, where he resided till 18 years of age.  In August 1862 he enlisted in the 120th O.V.I. for three years.  After the war he took up his residence in Wooster.  During his residence in Sugarcreek township [Wayne county] he taught a term at the West Moscow school.  During his career as a soldier he spent nearly a year in rebel prison.
  Mr. McKinney was a member of the United Presbyterian church.  He is survived by four children, Wm. McKinney of Carlin, Nevada; Dr. Fred McKinney of Leetonia, O.  Dr. Chas. McKinney of Pittsburg, and Miss Laura McKinney at home.
  Funeral was held Tuesday afternoon services in charge of Rev. Heron.

A Note from Jerry A. McAfee <mcafee_clan@hotmail.com>.  Jerry solves the mystery about this soldier's mother left by the bio below :
"
John McQuigg Jr.'s mother was Sarah McAfee.
Commemorative Biographical Record of Wayne County, Ohio
:  Chicago: J.H. Beers & Co. 1889
John McQuigg, one of the well-known
citizens of Wooster Township, was born in Ireland, and in his infancy his parents, John and ____(McAfee) McQuigg, came to America.  They settled in Wayne County, Ohio, and here the father died February 1, 1885, age nearly eighty years.  The mother who was a daughter of William W. and Martha (Ray) McAfee, still lives on the homestead, two daughters, Martha and Mary Ann, living with her.  Of her ten children, nine are living, the most of them in Wayne County.  She is a member of the United Presbyterian Church.  A brother, Robert McAfee, makes his home with her.  Her parents came to America from County Derry, Ireland, in 1838, and settled in Wayne County, Ohio, where the father died in 1858, and the mother in 1862. Mrs. McQuigg is now in her eighty-fourth year, is still hale and hearty, and well preserved for one of her years.  
  John McQuigg, the subject of our sketch, remained with his parents until manhood, assisting in the care of the home farm.  August 16, 1862, he enlisted in Company A, One Hundred and Twentieth Ohio Infantry, and served until the close of the war, being discharged in July, 1865.  He participated in five hard-fought battles, besides numerous skirmishes.  He was at the first attack on Vicksburg, Chickasaw Bluffs, Arkansas Post, passed the following winter at Young's Point, and then again marched to Vicksburg, when the second assault was made; later was at the bombardment of Grand Bluff, Mississippi, at the mouth of the Black River, in the battle of Thompson's Hill, and Champion Hills.  In May, 1863, at Red River, he was captured, and for thirteen months, lacking six days, was a prisoner at
Tyler, Tex.  While there, with his brother-in-law, Mahlon Roch [Rouch], he undertook the manufacture of pipes and combs from the horns of cattle killed for their sustenance. They obtained a good revenue from the sale of these articles to the guards and fellow prisoners, and in addition to its enabling them to purchase provisions from the outsiders, it helped to pass away many dreary hours of exile from home and friends.  After his discharge he returned to the old home in Wooster Township, where he remained until after his marriage, and in the spring of 1874 settled on the farm where he now lives.  He was married June 10, 1873, to Alice Armstrong, who died May 26, 1876, leaving a babe that died a few days later. February 20, 1879, he married Helen Culbertson, daughter of Hugh and Margaret Culbertson.  They have five children, viz.: Hugh, Sadie Florence, James Mahlon, John and an infant.  Mr. and Mrs. McQuigg are members of the United Presbyterian Church; in politics he is a stanch supporter of the principles of the Republican party.

Daily Record, Tuesday 20 Dec 1921, page 1.  Did he die on the 19th?  Some sources say the 17th.

George W. Metzler had thirty-eight months of active war experience, enlisting August 5, 1862, at Wooster, mustering into
Company C, [This seems to be incorrect since he is listed with Company A in the Roster book and is not listed at all in Company C.]  120th Ohio Volunteer Infantry, at Camp Mansfield, October 10, 1862, and sharing the fortunes of the regiment until he was made prisoner, and mustering out at Columbus, Ohio, June 26, 1865.  He took part in the battles of Chickasaw Bayou, Arkansas Post, Thompsons Hill, Champion Hills, Black River Bridge, the assaults on and siege of Vicksburg, and the battle of Jackson.  He suffered at times during the service from sickness caused by drinking bad water, but was with his regiment when it embarked on the Red River expedition, acting as company clerk, to which he had been detailed for several months.  He was on of the unfortunate ones who fell into the hands of the rebels when the steamer run aground at Snaggy Point, and he suffered the horrors of Camp Ford, the Tyler county, Texas, prison pen.  These were elsewhere portrayed in this work.  He was one of the party who set up a lathe, turned themselves arrows, and headed them with old hoop iron, in a desperate determination to escape, which was discovered and stopped before reaching a head.  His brother Samuel was a member of Company C, 16th Ohio Volunteers, from its organization to its disbanding, and was twice wounded, at Chickasaw Bayou and at Jackson.  They were the two youngest sons of the fifteen children of Samuel Metzler, who was a soldier of the 1812 war.  Samuel Metzler married first in 1816, Elizabeth Zinn, who died leaving him a daughter, Mary, born in 1817.  He next married Mary Crone, who died in 1823, leaving him three children: Sarah, born in 1820; Elizabeth, 1821; John, 1822.  In Pennsylvania, in 1824, Samuel Metzler married Elizabeth, daughter of Charles and Catharine (Woods) Forbes, and lineal descendant of General Forbes, who captured Fort Pitt (now Pittsburg), from the French during the French and English war.  The eleven children of this marriage were born:  Ellen, June 6, 1825; William, March 30, 1827; Catharine, January 7, 1829; Amanda, October 2, 1830; Thomas, November 18, 1832; Ann, November 3, 1834; Sarah Jane, March 25, 1837; Samuel, September 22, 1841;
George W., March 14, 1844; Malinda, March 22, 1848; Delilah, born August 8, 1839, deceased.  George W. and Sarah J.[his sister] now live in Kansas, Amanda in Cleveland, Catharine in Missouri, and the others in Wayne county.  This sketch is furnished by Thomas Metzler, a minister of the Church of God, and who, we learn, has been an extensive traveler, and whose lecturing card we append: "Travels around the world.  Twenty-one days among the icebergs of the Southern Hemisphere; also in the North Pole regions.  A visit to South America, Australia, England and Ireland, and nearly all the States of the Union."

W. E. Montgomery

    W. E. Montgomery, aged eighty, a long and well known resident of Macon, died at his home in Macon at 2:30 Monday morning.  Mr. Montgomery became known a few years ago from one end of the country to the other because of his relation of a little war incident that occurred in the Virginia mountains.  He and a few men were ordered to guard a narrow pass during the month of December, 1862.  Living near the picket guard in a log cabin was a young woman and her two little girls.  The father was away fighting for Bob Lee.  The little girls spent much of the time with the Union soldiers.  When Christmas came around, Mr. Montgomery rode over to Headquarters and made a requisition for a lot of blankets, provisions and dainties.  Then he and his comrades played Santa Claus for the little girls of the Confederate soldier.  The story was printed in several of the large papers and soon afterwards Mr. Montgomery received a letter from the granddaughter of the man whose little children the Union soldiers had befriended in winter time.  Mr. Montgomery, whose life was characteristic of the little incident that occurred in the Virginia mountains, was always doing good for others.
    For many years past his wife had been an invalid and he cared for her as tenderly as though she was a child.

C of the 16th OVI and I do find him listed in that company as being a private, age 23 in 1861 which helps somewhat to clear up the age given on the 1880 census.  He entered that company on 22 April 1861 for a term of 3 months and mustered out with the company on 18 Aug 1861.  The 16th OVI were on duty guarding roalroads in West Virginia and then saw some action in that state [Phillippi, Laurel Hill and Carrick's Ford] before returning to Ohio.]

Life Sketch of Capt. Rouch
  Mahlon Rouch was born in Plain township June 2, 1841 and the major part of his useful life was spent in Wayne county.  His father was Jacob Rouch, a farmer, and upon the home farm Capt. Rouch spent his early days.  He attended the neighborhood schools during the winter months.  At the age of nineteen years he entered Witttenberg college at Springfield, where he remained two years.
  On August 16, 1862 Capt. Rouch enlisted as a private in Company A 120th Regiment O.V.I. under Capt. Joseph H. Dowing.  He saw gallant service in the army and won several promotions, rising from private to first lieutenant in rapid order.  The promotion came to him while he was held a prisoner.  He was a prisoner in Camp Ford near Tyler, Texas,
[this was continued on page 4]
for thirteen months.  He received his discharge July 22, 1865, more than three months after the fall of Richmond, April 9, 1865.
Returned Home After the War
A
fter the war Capt. Rouch returned to his home, taught school and conducted a farm for a time.  He then entered the law department of the University of Michigan and was graduated therefrom in the spring of 1868. He was admitted to the practice of law in Ohio and began his practice in Orrville in 1870, remaining there four years. He moved to Wooster in 1874 and opened an office for the practice of law.  In 1896 he formed a partnership with C.M. Yocum.  
  Capt. Rouch continued the practice of law until a few weeks ago when illness prevented him from making his daily trips from his home to his office.  At his office he was always courteous and diligent in whatever task was undertaken.  His was a busy life, filled with the activities of the years as they rolled past into history.  He met situations as they came, often taking a staunch stand upon leading issues with a firmness that knew no deviation.
  Expressions as to the character of Capt. Rouch were numerous today.  As to his character as an upright man, Judge W. E. Weygandt said:
  "I am grieved that we shall not again see Mahlon Rouch upon the streets nor in the court room.  Capt. Rouch was a man of staunch character, of the strictest integrity and above all he was charitable toward those in whom he might see faults.  The legal profession has lost a noble member."
  Many of the civil war veterans, some of whom served with Capt. Rouch, were grieved beyond expression when the news of his death was told them.
  "Capt. Rouch was a noble man, a brave soldier, a Christian gentleman and one who was loved by all comrades." is a summary of what the comrades said about Capt. Rouch.

Death of W. D. Shurtz

At Columbus, Ohio, on November 28 , 1913, occurred the death of William D. Shurtz, a former resident of this city. He had been an invalid for some years with a complication of diseases. He was a carpenter by trade but in recent years was incapacitated for following his work and since the death of his wife in this city on December 26, 1909, he made his home with his sons in Columbus.

Mr. Shurtz was born in New Jersey on February 5, 1845. While yet a small boy his parents moved to Holmes County, Ohio, and there lived until his enlistment for service as a Union Solder. He enlisted on August 14, 1862, with the 120th Ohio Volunteers and was assigned to Co. A. With the decimation of its ranks he was transferred, on November 27, 1864, to Company H, 114th Ohio and again was transferred, on July 24, 1865, to Company F. of the 48th Ohio, and was with this Company mustered out of service at Baltimore on October 14, 1865.

During his military service the regiments with which he was connected passed through 13 engagements. He was on board the "City Belle" when it sank in the Red River on May 31, 1864, and was one of the few men with endurance to save his life by swimming ashore.

In 1878 he was united in marriage to Katherine Kieffer, of Wayne County, Ohio, and shortly afterward they moved to Ada, where they made their home during the life of his good wife.

He leaves three sons: Dr. Espy K. Shurtz, of Waterloo, Indiana, and O. K. and D. D., of Columbus. The remains were brought to Ada and on Monday forenoon Minister Marion J. Bradshaw conducted the funeral service at the Ream chapel and the remains were laid to rest in Woodlawn.

Mr. Shurtz was an honorable man - clean and honest in all his associations and dealing with his fellowmen; he was respected by every person who enjoyed his acquaintance. He was quite and retired in manner. He was a member of the Disciple church and was faithful in all his obligations to his family, the church and state.

A farmer.
For a full year from Oct 1862 while still in Camp Mansfield through Oct 1863, he was disabled from pneumonia and its aftereffects.  These aftereffects also included damage to his heart making him incapapble of active exercise.  Thus he was considered unfit even to be  in the Invalid Corps.
His requested address was Orrville OH.
He was discharged at Mound City, Illinois.

Marriage Certificate  Fulton County probate Court:  Cyrus J. WILFORD married Joanna WATKINS on 9 Nov 1869 in Fulton County OH.  

From the Widow's pension application: The soldier's wife's  name was Joanna WATKINS and they were married 9 November 1869 in Delta, Ohio.  He had not been previously married.  Joanna was the widow of Thomas WATKINS, a farmer in Fulton County, who had died 22 August 1868 in Delta, Fulton Co OH. [Fulton Co Probate Court record: Thomas WATKINS married Joanna DULL on 12 Apr 1866 in Fulton Co OH.]

[female] PERKINS, age 17 OH, parents born England, doing housework.

In Feb. of 1888 when he was examined for his pension his post office address was Delta, Fulton County, OH.  The paper spells his name WILLARD.  In his original invalid pension papers it is clear that he was sick from October of 1862 on, even spending 50 days back at home on furlough to get well.  Upon "returning to rejoin his Regiment at the end of that time, he was put upon a transport at Cairo Ill. to be taken to Memphis Tenn.  The weather was cold and damp and he was compelled to sleep on the upper deck exposed to the same and says he had a relapse and upon reaching Memphis Tenn. was sent to the Overton Hospital where he remained about two weeks suffering and being treated for disease of the lungs and pleurosy.  That he was then sent to the U.S. Hospital at Mound City Ill. and remained until discharged, being treated for the same diseases which have continued to the present time."  

In 1888 acquaintances gave affadavits to verify Cyrus Wilford's lung condition and his being half disabled for the performance of manual labor.  David F. Carr [age 59] and Ephraim Sergeant [age 67] were from Orrville, Wayne County OH.  N.E. Boles [age 49] and Robert Halton [age 72] were from Delta, Fulton County OH.  It is interesting that the family physician who took care of Cyrus after the war in Wayne County was Samuel Wilford who was deceased by 1888.  These papers indicate that Cyrus moved from Wayne County to Fulton County in 1865.
