Who is this John Bair who died in 1890?  Was he a relative of either soldier?  Did someone put the flag holder for the 48th at this man's grave thinking that he was one of the two soldiers listed on this page?  There is evidence that the other two on this page were soldiers in the 120th and the 48th but no proof that this man was in the Civil War in the 48th.

John BAIR, Pvt, Co E 48th OH Inf., enlisted at 22 in 1862.  Private John Bair of the 48th OH died after 1910, so this is not that man.

Connecticut Ave, Kenmore, Summit co OH.  Birth and death dates agree with the stone at the cemetery.  Informant was J. H. BAIR of Kenmore OH.  Gives her name as Uticha Christina BAIR.]

Birth Records from the Wayne Co. Probate Court
John Bair and Christiana [Hanshaw] of Green Township had a child Charles L. born 8 Nov 1871. Then residing in Orrville OH they had Mary Ann 17 Feb 1873, Laura M. 10 Oct 1876 and Clarence H. 15 Sep 1877 (this one was written into the book by hand.)
Wayne County probate  lists Mary Ann's parents as John Bair and Christiana Hanshery
Wayne County probate has this interesting entry.  John Bear and Enicha C. Henshaw were the parents of John W. Bear born 29 Jan 1874.  There is a stone right beside John and Christina's stone at Wooster cemetery that is for John William, son of J.A. and E.C. Bair. He died 2 Sept 1874.  It looks like it says age 2 months 25 days.  Is this the John W. born 29 Jan?  This also gives us another first name for Christina.

History of Richland County, 1908, by A.J. Baughman   pp. 736-737
This history has a biography of the son Allen E. Bell.  It states that Robert W. was born in Troy township on 2 September 1825, his parents coming from PA to OH in 1820.  A year later they moved to Worthington Township on eighty acres of land on section fifteen where they built a log house.  It says that Robert was in Company H 120th OVI and Company E 114th and mustered out in July 1865 at Houston TX. This bio gives his marriage year as 1866.  It says he attended the Presbyterian church and was a Republican.  It gives his death year as 1906 (but the stone looks like 1905).  It says he lived on his farm in Worthington township until his death.
Son Allen, according to this bio was born in Worthington Township on 13 Aug 1867 which is an entirely different date from the one above in Hardesty's.
He was an only child.  Allen married Essie R. Farst on 6 Jan 1892.  They had at least two children, Estella C. and Kenneth L.  He was a newspaperman and postmaster at Butler, Richland County.

Bricker died in California at age 95 (born about 1842) and was buried in Smithville.   He was a medical doctor but the war ruined his health to the point that he could not continue in that profession.  So he taught school at Eberly Academy  in Smithville, was a local correspondent for the Daily Record and the Daily and Weekly Republican, and was mayor of Smithville.]

Andrew was from Green Twp when he entered the war.  [See news article on 120th history page.]  But his home was really Columbiana County OH.

From Gloria Bushong [Gloria was my first contact and helped point me in the right direction]:
   Andrew was born 20 Aug 1834 in Fairfield Twp, Columbiana County OH to David and Barbara (Strickler) BUSHONG. David and Barbara had previously lived in Virginia. 

From Carol Willsey Bell, Bushong Researcher:

Andrew C. was never married.  In 1860 he was living in Columbiana County OH with his parents and four of his siblings. His occupation was listed as teacher.  (This and his age make me think that he was not a student, but rather a teacher with Taylor at the Smithville Academy.)  His siblings were: Katherine (Alice), Elizabeth M., Rebecca, David R., Reuben, Noah, Alpheus A., and Sarah.

This announcement was published in the Salem Republican, 14 Jan 1863: 
"Died, Andrew B Bushong, formerly a resident of Columbiana, and a member of the 120th Ohio Regiment, died at Memphis TN of Typhoid fever on the 28th ult [28 Dec1862]."
Andrew was buried at the Mississippi River Cemetery in Memphis TN. 

Story of Andrew's Brother, Noah Bushong

Andrew had two brothers who also served in the war, Alpheus and Noah (115th OVI). At the time of Andrew's death, Noah got permission to come home to Columbiana county for his funeral.  But upon his return to service,  he was charged with desertion by Captain Isaac N. Campbell, Company K. 

In the Courts Martial 1st Lieut. Albert W. Thompson testified that "he left the Company, to the best of my knowledge, without authority, although the Captain that then had command of the Company allowed some to go home on his own authority.  The prisoner made application to one, stating that his brother of some other Ohio Regiment had been killed in battle and his body was being sent home at that time.  I simply ordered him to the Captain.  He has been absent from the company since then."  Noah testified that, "The only thing that took me away was the death of my brother. I asked the Captain then in command of my Company, for permission to go home and he said that he could not give one permission to go at that time, as there were already too many at home on 'French Leaves'; but said 'that he guessed they would not do much with me if I went.'  I then went home with out leave..." 

There was some question as to whether his not being mustered in yet at the time he went home would release him of guilt in this matter. However he was found guilty and sentenced to one year with ball and chain attached to his left leg performing hard labor. He served his year at Camp Nelson, KY and then returned to the army after an 18 day furlough to go home.  (It's a wonder he would not be afraid to do that!) Years later, however, when applying for a pension he maintained that he had never had a ball and chain at any time during his year of labor.

The following is found on pages 266-67 of Portrait and Biographical Record of Johnson and Pettis Counties, Missouri (Containing Portraits and Biographical Sketches of Prominent and Representative Citizens of the Counties Together with Biographies and Portraits of all the Presidents of the United States)  Chicago:  Chapman Publishing Co. 1895.
 BIGELOW D. BUZZARD has been engaged in agricultural pursuits on section 24, township 45, range 29, Johnson County, for the past quarter of a century.  He is a patriotic citizen, and one greatly interested in the prosperity of the country for which he fought during the War of the Rebellion.  He was born in Holmes County, Ohio, September 29, 1830, and was reared to maturity on his father's farm.  After receiving ordinary educational privileges, and when twenty-two years of age, he went to a boarding- school for a few months, paying for his tuition with money he had earned himself.
[about his parents]
The father of our subject, Daniel Buzzard, was born in Westmoreland County, Pa., July 19, 1790, and served in the War Of 1812, on the lake.  Afterward he settled in Holmes County, Ohio, entering land from the Government, and resided there until 1850, when he sold out, locating near Odella Lake.  In 1853 he went to-Richland County, where he purchased one hundred and thirty-five acres, and thereon spent the remainder of his life.  He never received a pension nor land-warrant, because there had not been proper records of his army service kept, but he bought a couple of land-warrants of a nephew, and located three hundred and twenty acres in Linn County, Iowa.  He was twice married, his first wife being a Miss Nancy Drake, by whom he had fifteen children, all but five of whom lived to manhood and womanhood.  A strong anti-slavery man, he rejoiced at the downfall of the system, and after the organization of the Republican party became one of its supporters.  His death occurred August 16, 1865.
[more about Bigelow Buzzard]
B. D. Buzzard was reared on his father's farm, and continued to work on the place until 1860, with the exception of a few short intervals. [So Bigleow joined the Company out of Richland county.]  November 15, 1860, he wedded Araminda Brown, who was born in Richland County, Ohio, September 16, 1841, being a daughter of Caleb and Elizabeth (Johnston) Brown, natives of Butler County, Pa., and Greene County, Ohio, respectively.  The mother's parents, however, were also from the Keystone State. The Browns and Johnstons were of Scotch and Irish descent, but for many generations had lived in America.  The Buzzard family is of German origin, and our subject's father could speak little English until after he was twelve years of age.

Before his marriage Bigelow Buzzard erected a large house on his father's farm, and both families lived together after that event.  In September, 1862, he enlisted in Company H, One Hundred and Twentieth Ohio Infantry, and took part in the battles of Arkansas Post, Milliken's Bend and the siege of Vicksburg.  May 1, 1863, he was wounded in the right lung and fell prostrate, but as soon as he was able to stand, he was led to the rear, where his wounds were dressed, and for about two months he was in the field hospital.  He came very near death's door, and attributes his recovery partly to the fact that he was kept on a diet of boiled milk, which is nourishing and easily digested.  June 29, 1863, he was taken to Benton Barracks, near St. Louis, and was there honorably discharged on the 17th of the following month.  He went to the front under Captain Phelan, later served under Captain Taylor, and had as his Colonel a Mr. French, from his native county.

Returning home, Mr. Buzzard lived in Richland County, Ohio, until March, 1866, and there four of his children were born.  Moving to Cooper County, Mo., he purchased one hundred and twenty acres, paying the amount required on the spot, and cultivated the farm for two years.  In 1868, selling out, he moved to Johnson County and invested in a tract of one hundred and thirty- five acres.  In 1870 he also sold this tract, buying instead his present home of a quarter-section.  Since then he has added another eighty acres, and thus has a valuable farm, comprising two hundred and forty acres within its boundaries.
The eldest child of Mr. and Mrs. Buzzard, Annie Violet, born July 14, 1861, married George Frary, and died January 7, 1895, leaving four children, one having previously died in infancy.  Ulysses Grant, born June 19, 1864, and a resident of Kingsville Township, is married and has one child.  Jeanette F., born January 7, 1866, is clerking in Salida, Colo.  Martha E., born in Cooper County, Mo., November 29, 1867, died December 18, 1871.  Alice E., a native of this county, born June 16, 1869, married Albert Frary, by whom she has one child, and is a resident of Linn County, Iowa.  The younger children are Gilbert N., born January 31, 1870; Lizzie Pauline, February 11, 1873; Ethel Blanche, September 27, 1874; Minnie L., January 9, 1878; Maude E., March 25, 1880; Guy Ashton, December 5, 1881; Josie Olive, May 22, 1883; and Cora Augusta, August 30, 1886.

Politically Mr. Buzzard is a Republican, with strong prohibition proclivities.  Both he and his wife have been members of the Methodist Episcopal Church for many years, the former having become identified with the same in his early manhood, and the latter having been a member since 1862.  They are worthy people and well entitled to a place among the honored old residents of Johnson County.

Registers of Deaths of Volunteers, 1861-1865:  Thomas CROWNER, Private, Co H 120th OH Inf, died 24 Jul 1863 at Regimental Hospital.  Cause: typho mal fever.

Not on Burial Registers, Military Posts and National Cemeteries, 1862-1960

Not on National Cemetery Interment Control Forms, 1928-1962.

Thomas "Frowner" is buried right next to Jacob Harter, Co B 120th OVI.  Jacob, who died 25 July 1863 , is buried in  grave 10375.  Jacob had been originally buried at Robert Spear's plantation, Warren Co, MS.   Jacob died in a government wagon on the road between Jackson and Black river.  And Thomas Crowner also died on the road from Jackson Miss. to Vicksburg, Miss. So I believe that both had probably been buried at the same place originally.  

Have not found on Pension Index.

Dunlap, Nathan    19 Aug 1862
Nathan, age not given, is listed in the Roster of Ohio Soldiers 1861-66 volume 8, page 264, as a Private.  No comments are given about him.

Mother: Lydia [Anna] FLICKINGER
Birth:  11 Nov 1843 at Lancaster Co PA
Marriage:  Elizabeth BLUE, 11 April 1867, Ashland Co OH
Death:  26 Sep 1924, Ashland OH
Cemetery: Was returned to Wahoo NE for burial in Sunrise Cemetery, Wahoo, Saunders Co, NE.

Pension Index: Nathan DUNLAP, H 120th OH Inf.     Invalid pension for Nathan Dunlap of Company H 120th OVI was applied for in Nebraska....1890 Apr 19, Application 769826, Certificate 901799  Pension Card:  Nathan died 26 Sep 1924 at Wahoo, NE.  [Wahoo was his home, but he died in Ashland Co OH.]

Nathan Dunlap was born in Smithville, Wayne County OH in 1842. [This does not agree with Death record and obit.]  His father was William Dunlap and his mother was Lydia Flickinger.  That would make his age at entering the service as age 19 or 20.  The IGI lists siblings Elizabeth, John, William...and then after Nathan came Delilah.
Family Search, Ohio, Deaths, 1908-1953:  Delilah SWITZER died 21 Dec 1909 at Clinton Twp, Wayne co OH.  Age 65.  Married.  Born 21 Mar 1844 in PA.  Burial Fair View.  Father Wm DUNLAP born PA.  Mother Lydia FLICKINGER, born PA.  

 
According to Carl Frasher, Nathan's mother Lydia died in 1845 and his father, a cooper by trade, then married Delilah Fluck. So even though the Saunders County Directory says that his mother was Delila, she is probably his stepmother.  William and Lydia came to Wayne Co OH in 1840. (William had been born in Washington Co PA and married in Bedford Co PA.)

1850 Census,

[Viewed at Heritage Quest where there was a good clear copy}
1860 Census, Milton Twp, Wayne Co, OH, Dwelling 642, Family 642:  John Fleckinger, age 42 PA, farmer; Rebecca, age 29 OH; Christian A, age 9 OH; David W, age 6 OH; Sarah E, age 5 OH; Rebecca A, age 4 OH; John W, age one OH;  [next page]  unnamed male, 3 months OH; Nathan DUNLAP, age 15 OH, farm hand.

Nathan was living with his uncle John Flickinger.  He is listed as being 15 years old, born in Ohio and is a farm hand.
This information from Dunlap researcher Jean Carpenter:
Nathan lived with his uncle because his father abandoned the children after his first wife died in 1845.  She says that the family has no knowledge of when or where the father married the second wife Delila and they do not know where the father lived after they married.(possibly Mercer co IL)

Nebraska
Researcher
Carl Frasher [cfrasher@impulse.net] also says that Nathan married Elizabeth BLUE in 1867 in Ashland County OH and that a relation researched the Saunders Co Newspapers of 100 years ago and found many references to Nathan, who owned the largest Hotel in Wahoo NE.  Two of Nathan's children, John William and Bert A., died without issue. Son  James Franklin [Frank] had a daughter Lorene May.

Researcher Jean Carpenter [tomjean@voyager.net] says that Nathan came back to Ohio in early September 1924 because he was dying.  He lived with his granddaughter [? see obituary below] named Lorene Gardner (Mrs. John).  Nathan died on 26 Sep 1924 but was taken back to Wahoo NE to be buried in Sunrise Cemetery where his family was buried.  Nathan said that his uncle John Flickinger had told him that his birthday was 11 November 1842.

Jean Carpenter sent me this obituary for Nathan:

  George E. Fetzer was born in Canaan Township, Wayne county, Ohio, August 3, 1838, and died May 18,.1920, aged 81 years, 9 months and 15 days.  He was the eldest son of Barnhart and Catherine Younker Fetzer.  On January 25, 1866 he was united in marriage to Miss Susan Hoff, who survives.  They were married by the Rev.

Ohio Civil War Veterans Grave Registration site lists Peter Fox of Company H 120th OVI buried in Wayne County.
Wayne County Grave Registration book:
Peter Fox of Wayne county was buried in Apple Creek Cemetery #2, Lot #21, Block #2 grave #4.  There is no marker, according to this book but his grave is listed in the Wayne County Burials book.....so the existence of a stone is in question.
Wayne County Burials book lists only this one:
Apple Creek Cemetery, East Union Twp, Wayne co OH
Peter Fox, veteran Civil War, no dates
Catherine wife of Peter died 1891 It says in the book age 37 years, but the Catherine above in the census would have been about 64.  If the age was given on the stone, I could not read it.

The disease continued for weeks and he was treated by Dr. C C Stouffer.  Sept 1864, severe cold at Morganzia Bend which resulted in lung problems.  He then continued to suffer from both diseases.  At Plaquemine, LA, on the Mississippi River in Dec 1863 or Jan 1864 he injured his back while he "and two or three others were unloading a hogshead of sugar, some of the men slipped throwing the greater weight of the hogshead against [him] and he making an extra exertion to save himself strained his back...."  This resulted in kidney trouble.  

[1132] During the five years before Daniel GALLAGHER enlisted he lived at Newville, Richland Co OH and was a carpenter.  For four years after discharge he lived at Independence, Richland Co OH and then at Mansfield.  Has been two thirds to three fourths disabled for active manual labor.

[1202] May 1898: George N Stevens, post office address Mansfield,  wrote a letter saying that the widow needed help of a pension.  He lived about a block from her.  "She has one disabled son, & a sickly feeble daughter is at home with her, and am satified her own healthe is such that she cannot work but little of the time."

[1209 & 1211 & 1214, 1217,1218] Letters about the condition of soldier MERCER, widow's first husband.  

[1230] Sarah and James Mercer had not been married previous to their marriage to each other.

[1251] Daniel Gallagher was detaile to the ambulance corps March 14, 1865 and returned to company 24 July 1865.

[1256] Silas C. Parker:  "I am a member of the Co Soldiers Relief Commission and was compelled to insist that Mr. Gallagher take a relief from our fund which he did reluctantly for a few months prior to his death.  His wife and family now receive assistance monthly from our fund."

[1257] Gallagher's doctor in the last part of his life was George W. Baughman.  Baughman said that it was his opinion that Gallagher died of apoplexy [a stroke].

[1264]  Walter Bradford, member of the Soldiers Relief Commission, wrote about Sarah Gallagher.  "This relief arranges five dollars a month for perhaps ten months in the year and is simply a charity given by the State to widows or soldiers who are in indigent circumstances.  My law firm attends to her affairs and I have personal knowledge of her circumstnces."

[1268] Sarah's son, David E. MERCER, was "killed by the cars July 3rd 1897."  James Mercer was born and raised in Richland Co OH.  He was a carpenter.  He had a brother Joseph who lived out by the Fair grounds.  He had sisters who lived in MO.

[1312]The widow had inherited from her first husband a house at No 136 Second St, Mansfield OH......a small six room house.

[1313]  Sarah took in washing and ironing and house cleaning.

[1320] Robert Bell, "The way I remember is that we were on picket duty at the same time at New Iberia La and I know he was complaining of the rheumatism and wishing he could get home."  [1321....Robert Bell tells about his capture.  See Robert Bell, Company H, 120th OVI]

[1321]Samuel L. Blosier knew Daniel Gallagher from about 1877. "I remember Daniel Gallagher quite well, I knew him from about 1877, he was working at the carpenter business, kind of jobbed around, not working for any particular person or firm.  We were neighbors for two- yes very near three years, from along about 1876, after that time being well acquainted with him saw him about town quite frequently."    "I considered him more of less a cripple, he walked bent over and had that appearance, he was afflicted with rheumatism, or at least that was always his complaint, the old man was afflicted all over, it would be hard to locate it in any particular place, that was his condition from the time I first knew him, of course gradually growing worse, the longer it ran the worse it grew."

[1351, 1352, 1353, 1354] Good summary of "special" pension applications for Daniel Gallagher and widow.  "The death cause cannot therefore be properly claimed as due to soldier's army service."  No special claim could be made on James Mercer's death either.

[1366 and 1367] About James Mercer's children.  Alice's married name was SAYLES.

[1393, 1395] William O. Hissong worked with Daniel Gallagher in carpentry and cabinet work.  Hissong later lived in Furnas county Nebraska.  They worked together in Jackson MI for a short while in 1873.  But Gallagher returned to Mansfield.

[1399] Gallagher worked part of the time in the B & O railroad yards.

[1401]  Affiant, Samuel A. Smith, of Mansfield, Pvt, Co H 120th OH Inf:  About Daniel Gallagher: "And as near as he can remember the Regt left Carrollton La. in October 1863 on the Teche Campaign and it  was generally understood that we were headed for Opeloussas La. but before reaching said point we turned back and finally landed at Plaquemine La. where they went into winter quarters.  and it was while on this march said soldier contracted rheumatism.  That soldier was weak and reduced in flesh when the regt. started on said campaign from the effects of Chronic Diarrhoea which he contracted sometime previous and he could not stand the March and when he became afflicted with rheumatism he was excused from duty. and affiant thinks he was left behind and did not join the regt again until after they were in camp at Paquemine [sic].  Affiant further testifies that said soldier continued to suffer with rheumatism until May 1864 when affiant was taken prisioner [sic] and did not see him again during service." [Bayou Teche Campaign  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bayou_Teche_Campaign.  The 120th OVI was one of the regiments that took part in the Bayou Teche Campaing in Western Louisiana, Oct 3 - Nov 30 1863.

History of Ashland County, Ohio by A. J. Baughman, 1909

Andrew J. Griner

    Andrew J. Griner, who has farm holdings in Jackson township, is now residing in the village of Polk, of which he at present is acting in the executive capacity of mayor, and also previously served in that office for several terms.  He was born in Green township, Wayne county, this state, November 21, 1843, a son of Frederick and Sarah (Kintner) Griner, both of whom came from Dauphin county, Pennsylvania, with their parents in the early pioneer days and were among those who assisted in developing the natural resources of this part of the state, in which they attained to considerable prominence.  The name Griner is one which gained a wide reputation through these parts through the paternal grandfather, Philip G., who for a number of years kept a tavern at Smithville in Wayne county, the inn in those days being far different from the ordinary tavern of today by reason of the fact that they were not simply drinking places but particularly the meeting places of travelers and people throughout the community, who there entered into discussions of public questions, debating those issues upon which depend the public welfare.  The father was an agriculturist, the tract of land he cultivated having been transformed from thick woodland into fertile fields, his son assisting in the work of improvement.
    At the outbreak of the Civil war Andrew J. Griner enlisted, on August 15, 1862, in Company H., One Hundred and Twentieth Ohio Volunteer Infantry, serving throughout the struggle and being honorably discharged on October 16, 1865.  His regiment witnessed much hard service in the army of the Mississippi particularly at the siege of Vicksburg, being present at the surrender.  A. J. Griner participated in six battles with the regiment and for a period of thirty days in the three years was under continuous fire.  However, Mr. Griner was fortunate in that he was never taken prisoner nor seriously wounded, although, as in the case of many others, he returned from the conflict with his health greatly impaired.  Following the war he returned home and for two years assisted his father on the farm, presently removing to Fayette county, Illinois, where he engaged in farming for about one year.  In 1869 he removed to Decatur, Illinois, where for one year he became interested in the grocery business, after which for a period of four years he worked at the carpenter trade.  In the fall of 1872 returning to Wayne county, he managed his father's farm for two years, and then removed to Medina county, where for four years he followed general agricultural pursuits.  Again returning to Wayne county he settled near West Salem, where he followed farming and stock-raising for four years and in 1884 removed to Burbank, Wayne county, where for eight years he plied his craft as a carpenter.  In 1892, Mr. Griner again had recourse to farming, this time near Albion, where he remained until 1894, when he went to Polk, where he devoted his time to agriculture and carpentry until February, 1909, when he was appointed agent for the Cleveland Southwestern & Columbus Railway, the duties of which office he is now performing.
    On January 23, 1863, Mr. Griner wedded Miss Margaret Sands, a daughter of John and Elizabeth (Frank) Sands, her father a prominent clergyman of the Reformed church.  Mrs. Griner entered into rest April 27, 1904.  To this union were born two children:  Grant S. and Lodell G., both of whom reside with their father.
    Mr. Griner is a republican in politics, taking an active interest in the affairs of the party and frequently has been a delegate to county and district conventions.  Being a man of intelligence and highly respected for his administrative ability he was elected as chief executive of Polk in 1900
and served for two terms, covering a period of four years.  In 1906, he was again elected and is still performing the duties of that office.  He belongs to McCarty Post, No. 182, G.A.R., of which several times he has been commander, having also filled various other offices in that organization of which he at the present time is commander.  He is well known throughout Grand Army circles and on a number of occasions has been sent by his post as a delegate to state and national encampments. His religious affiliations are with the Methodist Episcopal church, to which he has belonged for many years and in which also he is an active worker.  Being a musician of considerable ability and at the same time a teacher of vocal and instrumental music he finds recreation by this means and since coming to Polk has been chorister in the Methodist Episcopal church.  Mr. Griner is one of the most enterprising and public-spirited men in the community, always ready to further all movements designed for its betterment particularly favoring good roads and schools, and in him the municipality finds one of its most honorable and excellent citizens.

[Holmes County marriage book:
There is a marriage for a John H. Grubaugh and Majora Shaffer in Holmes county OH on 10 Aug. 1861.] 

John Henry and Marjory Shaffer did  have a son.  He was Andrew Jackson Grubaugh, b.11-22-1861; d.9-7-1938.   As far as I know, this is the only child they had.  Andrew married in Licking County, Ohio, and had a family. 

John Henry, as far as I know, only lived in Richland County before he entered military service.  I have no record what his occupation was before the war.
His wife Marjory Shaffer is a bit of a mystery in my data, I have her birth as 1840, and an unsure death date of about 1866. The verbal history is that she died when son Andrew was about 5 years old - hence the "about 1866" date for her death.

From researcher Don Penrod about this picture: Now for the question of Lewis Hoover's being married or not?  The picture was identified by my grandfather and his sister Alice.  Since neither of them were yet born at the time of Lewis's death (11 Mar 1870) someone else would have had to identify the picture to them, I would suspect either Samuel's sister Sarah or Susan.  Uncle Cleve was raised by the Krofts (Sarah and Henry).  Alice and Walter stayed in close contact with Sarah and Henry, would suppose they were most likely to have identified the picture.  I have re-read the incident on the boiler explosion that killed Lewis.  The article mentions the wives of some of the other fellows, but says nothing about Lewis's wife or family, only that he and his brother David were the sons of Martin Hoover.  In the Hoover/Swagler Cemetery there are no unidentified Hoovers buried there.  Have no idea as to the name or what happened to the woman in the picture.

For facts about Lewis' parents and siblings see his brother, Samuel HOOVER of this same company.
Lewis was single but it leaves us wondering about the picture above. Was he single all his life or not?

Tragic Death of Lewis Hoover
[Note: one rod = 5 yards]
Wooster Republican Thursday March 17, 1870
Awful Explosion of the Saw-Mill Boiler of Messrs. Knupp, Hoover & Shook, in Milton Tp, on Friday last!
Seven Men Killed Instantly!

We are indebted to the politeness of J. S. Paul Esq., of Smithville, for the following facts in relation to the terrible boiler explosion in Milton Township on Friday last.  Mr. Paul went to the scene of destruction and made careful inquiry, and his account will no doubt prove to be substantially correct.  Mr. Paul says:"On last Friday afternoon, at 3 o'clock, the boiler in the saw-mill of Knupp & Co., near Shinersburg, Milton Township, exploded, killing seven men--all who were about the mill.  I visited the scene of the disaster yesterday, and gathered the following facts, which are as near correct as I could obtain them.
"The mill is located about 1 miles southwest of Shinersburg, and only a few rods from the track of the Atlantic & Great Western Railway, and was owned by Jacob Knupp, Martin Hoover and John Shook.  On the day of the accident the mill was run by Jacob Knupp, John Fritz, Lewis Hoover and his brother David.  Mr. Robert McConnell and his son Frank and David shook were at work on a house as carpenters, a few rods west of the mill.  A shower of rain coming up, they took shelter in the mill, when in less than ten minutes the explosion took place, and all were instantly killed, except David Hoover, who lingered about four hours.
"Jacob Knupp was a married man, owned one third interest in the mill, and was 41 years of age;  had been married about two years, and was a very active and influential citizen of Milton Township.  John Fritz was a man in the prime of life, having but one arm, having lost the other some years ago.  He was engineer and fireman and a worthy man.  He leaves a wife and six children.  David Shook was also married, and leaves a wife and three children.  Robt. McConnell was about 45 years of age, and his son about 17.  The two Hoover boys were sons of Martin Hoover, one of the owners of the mill, and sober, industrious young men. 
"The boiler and engine were placed side by side at the west end of the mill, and there is nothing but a hole in the ground to mark the spot where they were placed, both being complete wrecks;  the boiler especially being torn into small pieces, (except one piece, supposed to weigh about five hundred pounds, which was thrown across the railroad, a distance of fifteen rods.  The cylinder of the engine, or part of it, was deposited on some logs twelve rods from the mill.  The dome, weighing several hundred pounds, was landed in adjoining field two hundred yards distant.  The engine and boiler are complete wrecks, but the mill part is very little injured.  The saws are left perfect.  The supposition is that it was not running at the time the explosion occurred, as the log on the carriage was not commenced on, and it is also supposed that the water had become low in the boiler and was replenished too suddenly, which caused the explosion.  The ball which held down the safety-valve, I should judge to weigh about 20 pounds and I was informed that it was a practice with them to prop down the safety valve to raise steam. 
"The men's positions when found were as follows: Lewis Hoover and Jacob Knupp were thrown about six rods east of the mill. Knupp was some bruised, but Hoover had no marks and it is supposed the concussion killed him.  John Fritz, the fireman, was thrown a distance of twenty five rods nearly north of the mill, and had nearly all of his head and arm blown off, and was otherwise mangled.  David Shook was found eight rods southwest of the mill.  Robt. McConnell was whirled across the railroad into a cornfield, some twelve rods south of the mill.  David Hoover and Frank McConnell were thrown from ten to twelve rods in a northwesterly direction.  All had their boots torn from their feet and nearly all their clothing into shreds.  Shook and Fritz were most mangled, and were buried on Saturday, and the others on Sabbath.
"This terrible accident casts a deep gloom over the neighborhood and surrounding country.  All the victims were industrious and respectable citizens, and their families should have every sympathy that can be bestowed upon them."

Samuel Hoover's first wife was Mary Ann Dague, also complications of giving birth (boy) to what would have been their first child.  I was told that her parents took the child to raise.  Have no idea as to his name. [Wayne County Probate Court record:  Samul E. HOOVER married Mary Ann DAUGE on 29 Aug 1867 in Wayne Co OH.]

He married Catherine Steele About 1870 in Rittman.  She was born about 1846 and died in childbirth summer of 1886.  This child is not listed below. 

The children of Samuel Hoover and Catherine Steele:  Catherine was visiting relatives in OH when they met. Their first child Alice was born in OH and one other child that did not live, and some time after that they moved to Centerville Iowa.
1.  Alice C.  Hoover b. 24 Dec 1872 Rittman, Ohio d. 1 Mar 1964 Barberton, Ohio.  Married C. S. (Stoke) Smith
2.  Now this one I don't give too much credit to, but it is listed as a birth to Samuel and Catherine Hoover in the courthouse in Wooster.  Strange name and no one ever talked about her, but here goes:  Snoda Hoover b. 24 Dec 1873 in Wayne County, Milton Twp, Ohio
3.  Walter Hampton Hoover (this one is Don Penrod's grandfather) b. 11 Oct 1877 Centerville, Iowa d. 3 Oct 1948 Wadsworth, Ohio.  Married Dora Lance 7 Apr 1901.
The published Obituary gives a death date of 4 Oct 1948.  He died right at 11:00PM, the family who was present has always used the 3 October date.
4. Eddie Hoover, would assume Edward, b. about 1880 Centerville, Iowa d. about 1880 Centerville, Iowa.
5. John Cleveland Hoover b. 19 Dec 1884 Centerville, Iowa d. 17 January 1961 Pontiac, Michigan.  Married Eleanor Elizabeth Byers.
Calculated from remarks of Uncle Cleve and my Grandfather.   Uncle Cleve was about 2 1/2 years old [<1887>] when the family moved back to Wayne Co., and they talked how his father had to carry him through the deep snow drifts.

Obituary:  Rittman Press  Thursday 2 June 1921
Civil War Veteran Dies
  Samuel Hoover who resided in this section many years ago died in Barberton on Tuesday of last week at the home of a daughter, Mrs. C.S. Smith.  The deceased was a veteran of the Civil War and was more than 77 years of age.
  Funeral services were held Friday in Rittman at the U. B. Church at 10:30 a.m. and were conducted by the pastor.  The burial was made in the Swagler cemetery.
  Samuel Hoover moved from Ohio to Iowa considerably more than a quarter of a century ago.  There his wife died and about 25 years ago he returned to Ohio to make his home.  He has been living recently at the home of his daughter in Barberton.
  Besides the daughter just mentioned he is survived by two sons, Walter Hoover, of Rittman and J.C. Hoover, of Detroit.
  The deceased served in the Union army during the Civil War, 1861 to 1865, and later made his home in this vicinity and then at a still later period moved to the west.

East Union Township
Lemuel Hunter left his home full of health and vigor of young manhood, and gave his life a sacrifice to his country, not 20- years of age at his death.  He enlisted at Apple Creek, in August 1862, and at Camp Mansfield, October 17th, was mustered into Company H, 120th Ohio Volunteer Infantry.  He shared the fortunes of that regiment through its first campaigning under Sherman, and took gallant part in the battles of Chickasaw Bayou and Arkansas Post.  Returning then to the regiment to the Mississippi at Youngs Point, they were sent down to Millikens Bend.  There the life the rebel bullet had spared was taken by a more insidious foe. The unhealthfulness of the locality, and the abominable water they were forced to drink, laid many a brave man low.  Lemuel Hunter was one of these victims.  He became afflicted with chronic diarrhea, was sent to the hospital, and there wasted away until his death, which occurred on the 8th of July, 1863.  Far from home and the mourning parents who had given him to the service of the country he died, and his remains were laid beneath the alien sod, on the banks of the Mississippi, in the old cemetery at Millikens Bend.  He was born in East Union township, where his father still lives [1885], a farmer, the date of his birth December 16, 1843, and Wilson and Mary A. (Salsbury) Hunter his parents.  Another son this patriot couple gave to the service, and of his fate they still remain ignorant.  He served in the same company with his brother, until on the Red River campaign he was sent on a foraging expedition from which he never returned.  Whether he fell by the hand of the lurking bushwhacker, or wasted away with sickness and died among strangers, is unknown.  His name was William Hunter.

History of Mercer County, Ohio & Representative Citizens, 1907, by S.S. Scranton, pp 546 & 551
Eli H. Kelly, residing in section 22, Washington township, owns 150 acres of valuable farm land and is one of the survivors of the Civil War.  He was born March 12, 1839, in Stark County, Ohio, and is a son of David and Catherine (Biler) Kelly, who were the parents of eight children.
    The parents of Eli Kelly moved to Knox county, Ohio, in his infancy where they lived for five years, then lived in Allen county for two years, after which they resided for 11 months in Adams County, Indiana.  They finally located in Liberty Township, Mercer County, in 1851, and it was here that our subject was reared.  His father bought a farm of 80 acres which Eli assisted in clearing and cultivating.  By attending school during the winter he secured an education and after leaving school he taught for three years; also one year after his marriage.  In October, 1882 [should be 1862], he enlisted in the 120th Regiment, Ohio Vol. Inf., and served for 13 months.  He had enlisted for three years but was severely wounded in the battle of Thompson's Hill, May 1, 1863, which prevented any further military service.  He participated in the battles of Chickasaw Bluff and Arkansas Post, in the Army of the Mississippi under General Sherman.  His regiment then went under the command of General Grant, going to Vicksburg, Mississippi, where it did hard labor building a canal, then ran the blockade at Vicksburg, on the Grand Gulf and marched all night to Thompson's Hill, going into battle the next morning without anything to eat.  About 11 o'clock that morning Mr. Kelly was severely wounded in the left hand by a musket ball, which tore part of it away.  He was then sent to the field hospital where he underwent an operation, being later removed to a hospital near Grand Gulf, where rations were cut off and Mr. Kelly had nothing to eat for four days.  He was later moved to a camp near Vicksburg, where he took fever and was moved from camp to camp until June 1st, when he was sent to St. Louis where he lay in the hospital for three months.  After leaving the hospital, he obtained quarters in St. Louis, and after examination was assigned to the Invalid Corps, but was rejected.  He then underwent a medical examination and was finally discharged after 13 months of most trying experiences.
    Mr. Kelly then returned to his home in Washington township, whither his wife had moved in the meantime, and where she owned a farm of 40 acres, which is now the residence property of Mr. Kelly and his family.  He was ill for a long time after returning from the war, but upon his recovery engaged in farming.  He bought 40 acres of land in Liberty township in 1865, which he later sold and bought 80 acres in section 12, Washington township; he has also 20 acres in section 24.  He has cleared the greater part of this land and has left about 30 acres of timber.
    Mr. Kelly was married in 1861 to Cynthia Kannard, a daughter of George Kannard, and they have had seven children, namely:  John, who was educated at the Western Ohio Normal School, at Middlepoint, later taught school three years and is now interested in a stone quarry at Middlepoint -- he has a family of five children; George Albert, who is married and resides on his 40-acre farm in Recovery township;  Rusha, who married Robert McQueen and lives on her father's farm in section 12, Washington township; Viola, who married Michael Konrath and at her death left one child, which lived only a week; WilliamEtta, who married Jacob Clouse, lives in Kansas and has three children; and Estella, who lives at home.  Mr. Kelly is a member of the Grand Army of the Republic and belongs to Washington Grange, P.of H.   [date of the book:  1907]

Page 268 of this same book states that E.H. Kelley was in Company H of the 120th Reg., showing the correct identity for this soldier.

The biography of his son Abraham, in the History of Mercer County, Ohio & Representative Citizens, 1907 
by S. S. Scranton, pp. 279 - 280:
Abraham W. Larue, a well-known and prominent farmer of Washington Township, residing on the homestead in section 5, who with his brother, Isaac Martin Larue, owns 400 acres of land in one body, was born in Butler County, Ohio, July 5, 1849, and is a son of Uriah and Lydia (Neff) Larue.
   Uriah Larue and his wife were both born in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, where they were reared.  They were married in Philadelphia and moved to Butler County, Ohio, where they resided for about five years, in 1854 moving to Mercer County, where Mr. Larue bought a 320-acre timber tract.  They first moved into a log house.  This primitive log structure was destroyed by fire after but a few weeks of occupancy.  It was then in the dead of winter.  They then erected and moved into another log house about one mile east, in the midst of the forest, first having to cut a road to the clearing where the house was built.  Their present fine large home stands near where their first cabin, which was of round logs, was built by them and their neighbors after the fire and before their new hewn-log house was completed.  Mr. and Mrs. Larue were the parents of eight children, Namely:  Abraham W., the subject of this sketch; Elizabeth E., deceased at the age of 18 years; Leah Ann, deceased at the age of 19 years; Uriah B., who died after reaching manhood; Isaac Martin, who is part owner of the home farm; John V., who died in young manhood, while attending school at Valparaiso, Indiana; David F. living half a mile south of the homestead, who has two children living - Nellie and Leslie - and one deceased in infancy - Orrville; and Lydia A., who died aged 10 years.  Mr. Larue was a soldier in the Civil War, enlisting in 1862 and served three years.  He died in 1884.  His widow is still residing on the home place.[1907]
    Abraham W. Larue was reared on his father's farm and spent the most of his boyhood days in assisting his father clear the land.  In young manhood he taught school in the winter seasons for a number of years.  He has never married but has lived all his life on the home farm.  Both he and his brother Isaac are members of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows and of the Patrons of Husbandry.
    Isaac Martin Larue took for his wife Mary Weaver, who was born in Darke County, Ohio, and is a daughter of George and Joan (Slack) Weaver.  They have two children:  Kathleen and Mildred.
__________
The same book as above shows on page 267 in a list of the men of Mercer County in the Civil War that U. LaRue was in Company E of the 48th Reg.  This shows that the man who lived in Mercer County was the soldier of  Company H, 120th OVI. [See the roster information at the top of this section on Uriah .]

Uriah was born 27 May 1819, died 23 Dec 1884 and is buried at State Line Cemetery in Mercer County OH.

e was son of William B. & Juliet (Herron) Miller. His siblings were Mary Francis, John T., James, Howard & Elvira. He was born Jan. 12, 1848, Rochester, Pa. & so enlisted at age 14, which was probably the reason he did so at Independence, Ohio instead of in Beaver Co., Pa. His occupation was blacksmith, glassworker & steamboatman. He died Sept. 17, 1916 in Rochester, Pa. & is buried in Irwin Cemetery there. He married Isabel Pfiffer May 4, 1870 in West Bridgewater, Pa."  [Note: There is an Irvin Cemetery in Rochester, Beaver Co PA.]

In the History of the Lawyers of Wayne County, Ohio, in 1900, Ben Douglas said of James B. as a newborn baby, he was "a speechless, disinterested, semi-concious entity in  swaddling clothes."   Well, he certainly came a long way after that day.

James B. TAYLOR was born in Fredericksburg, Wayne county, OH 24 Aug 1840. His father was James Taylor, a native of Virginia. James, a farmer and lawyer,  died in 1873 at age 72. His mother was Elizabeth CURTIS Taylor. She was also a native of  VA and a Quaker. She died in 1878. They came together to Wayne County in 1825. They had nine children.
James was the youngest. The children listed in the 1850 census were John, Margaret, Benton, Bruce, and James. Bruce was also a veteran of the Civil War, serving in Company E, 169th OVI.
Bruce is buried at Wooster Cemetery Sec 1, Grave 2.  Parents James and Elizabeth are buried at Fredericksburg East Side Cemetery.

James B. went to college in PA, graduating from Westminster College in June 1861. He then organized and opened the Smithville Academy. [See Smithville Community Historical Society]  He changed his plans when he joined the military to fight in the Civil War.  After the war, he studied medicine and then law and ended up with the law as his profession. He was a lawyer for 58 years, practicing part of the time in Orrville and then moving to Wooster. He was a member of the Presbyterian Church in Wooster, a mason and a member of the GAR.

His first wife and the mother of his children was Emilie EMMITT (EMMETT). She was a native of PA and the daughter of John Emmett. She was principal of the schools at Fredericksburg at the time of their marriage. She died 25 Sept 1905. Her grandfather had laid out Emmetsburg PA. In memory of her in 1906 he donated his house on North Market Street to be the city's hospital.

James B. and Emilie had six children. But three of them must have died fairly young. The only names in the articles were:
Rob C. Taylor, who had two children Emilie and James; Harry E. Taylor; and Josephine, who was married to Rev. Fred J. Slagle.

House donated by TaylorJames B. died at age 85 in 1925...he died in Wooster at the Hospital which he had donated to the city. His widow was his second wife, Margaret Jane FIKE Taylor. They are buried at Wooster Cemetery.

In searching for Elias TROYER, I checked the Amish and Amish Mennonite Genealogies by Hugh F. Gingerich and Rachel W. Kreider, Pequea Publishers, Gordonville, PA 17529. In the many Troyer families listed, only one Elias Troyer fit.  But the information was very questionable according to the book, having many question marks beside the names.  This Elias Troyer was born about 1835 in Holmes County OH to Jacob TROYER and  Veronica/Fanny YODER.  No death date was given and no marriage.

This family is missing from the 1850 census book [haven't found it yet], but they were living in Milton Twp Wayne Co OH at the time that Ferdinand's and Jacob's father Francis Vienes (Vienez) died.  His will [Francis Vienez] is dated 2 May 1850 and was probated 2 Sep 1850.  (On microfilm V-4 will book 3, page 370).  The will says he was living in Milton Township.  It does not mention a wife for Francis, so she must have died previously.  The oldest daughter Melanie is mentioned separately as she is to have some certain items of the estate.  The others are to receive equal shares.  The will has Jacob listed as Jacque [The probate records book lists it as Jacob in the guardianship record.]

See photo above that was included.
Cyrus enlisted at Ashland Co OH
 [POW1]Captured at Snaggy Point, LA, 3 May 1864.  Paroled at Red River Landing, LA, 27 May 1865.  
[1505] Widow of Cyrus, Elizabeth Willford,  died at Pomona [Franklin Co], KS on 4 Mar 1912. [This does not agree with tombstone which says 19 May 1915.]
 [1508]Post office return said Elizabeth died 19 May 1915.
[1511 and 1517] Cyrus was pensioned for disease of lungs [bronchitis] and loss of teeth resulting from scurvy.  
 [1523] Wife's maiden name, Elisabeth BRUBAKER.  They married at Richland Co Oh, 8 Mar 1866.  
[1523] Dated 8 May 1875, Declaration of Invalid Soldier for Pension:  Cyrus Willford of Ottawa, Franklin Co KS:  Whilst in said service and in the line of his duty at Snaggy Point, Red River LA on or about May 3rd 1864 he was captured by the enemy and confined in the Rebel Stockade at Tyler Texas until May 27, 1865.  That during his long confinement in said prison owing to barbarous treatment therein received by reason of flagrant exposure to heat, cold and rain, deprivation of food and medical treatment with the wretched sanitary surroundings, his physical system was completely wrecked and never has revived, the effect being a general prostration of the nervous system with affection of the lungs.  His occupation is and has always been that of a farmer.  
[1527]Cyrus gave testimony on 7 June 1889 from Hawthorn, Alachua, Florida:  He was a prisoner of war at the time he was taken sick with the scurvy about October 1864 in the Confederate prison Camp Ford Texas.  There being no surgeon or medicine in the prison he received no treatment except at the hands of his comrade with such herbs as they knew to be of service in the treatment of scurvy.  After my return from prison to our line all the treatment I received was pickled cabbage with plenty of cayenne pepper.
[1529] Places the soldier had resided since discharge:  Ohio, Kansas and Florida.  Was at Loudonville OH to 1 Dec 1868.   Was at Centropolis KS to Feb 25?, 1888.   Includes a list of his doctors.
[1542] Deafness at Memphis TN while on drill by discharge of guns near my head while firing by platoons.  
[1544] But.......Cyrus said that he was treated by the Confederate Surgeon of the Prison Hospital at Camp Ford Texas while a prisoner of war for lung disease and nervous prostration covering a period from July 1864 to May 1865.  Dated 21 Mar 1881 at Centropolis, Franklin Co KS.  
[1545-6] Was in enemy prison for one year and 24 days.  No regimental surgeon was captured and taken to the same prison.
 [1547] Moved from Centropolis KS to Douglas Co KS on 25 Oct 1882? which was just a move of four miles.  Post office then was Globe, Douglas Co KS.  Back to Franklin Co KS 28 Jan 1889 to former residence p.o. Centroplois.  Says he had diarrhea the whole time he was in confederate prison.   In the prison, "During my suffering from May to Dec. 1st 1864 my shelter was a brush shed to keep off the hot sunshine by day and dews by night.  For our bed one government blanket for three of us.  In time of rain this same blanket stretched over a pole made our shelter.  During the summer rain and vermin were the only two things plentiful with the prisoners."  "The first treatment I received by any physician was the Confederate Post Surgeon at Camp Ford Texas.  He treated me for the cough that I contracted while there in the months of November and December.  He gave me medicine for the relief of my cough but received but little benefit there from."
 [1563] Dated 1889.  Joseph MYERS testified for Cyrus.  Myers was the ranking officer of Co H to be at Camp Ford.  He was age 51, resident of Kidder, Caldwell Co MO.  At prisoner of war camp, Camp Ford Texas.  In October 1864 Cyrus took sick while assisting in preparing material for shelter.  He took sick with what I supposed was scurvy.  His nose bled frequently especially from coughing.  His gums became swollen and bled frequently.  His legs were swollen and his skin had a chalky white appearance.  These conditions continued with varying degree until spring.  We had a ring in which we walked for exercise during the winter.  The stronger ones of us assisted the applicant [Cyrus] frequently in taking this exercise.  In the spring about March 1865 we gathered young and tender shoots of such plants as we knew were not poisonous which we cooked into "greens" for him and other sick men. [1593] Henry Brubaker, age 56 of Granger, St. Joseph IN signed a very similar statement pm 15 Kime 1889.]
[1567] 27 men of Co H were captured at Snaggy Point. ....Joe Myers, 1st Sergt, Co H.  
[1565] Dated 3 May 1887, Kidder, Mo.  Joe Myers writes once again to the commissioners of pension.  He seems a bit annoyed. "In reply will say that the original affidavit as sworn to before Jno. P. Platt clerk of court was in my own hand writing.  I am not a physician but I know what I said in relation to his [Cyrus Wilford] contracting a cold, rheumatism and scurvy because I was with him and helped to take care of him during his sickness in the prison camp and until he was discharged along with the rest of us.  In the prison camp there was no way of properly caring for the sick and the applicants  disease being so severe left an impression on my mind not easily removed.
The clerk or officer who reads this may "put this and that together" and see where the "suspicion of mendacity" rests.  Candidate for President Petitions congress for a specific legislation.  President candidate for renomination vetoes that specific legislation, and charges disabled soldiers with mendacity.    Joseph Myers
[1580] Dated 15 June 1889, David Brubaker, age 42 or Willow Springs Twp, Douglas Co KS testified:  I first saw Cyrus Willford after his return from the army about the second week in July 1865.  He was in very delicate health and has been ever since as far as my knowledge.  And I have lived neighbor to him ever since then was? except for 2 years.  I moved to Kansas October 8, 1866 and he moved here Dec 3, 1868 and have lived here ever since until Feb 13 1888 he moved to Florida and he has been unable to do hard labor or in short he is not fit for work except very light work and part of the time was entirely prostrate.  His lungs and throat seemed to be the trouble which the doctors called bronchitis or lung trouble.  I was well acquainted with him before he went to the army and he was stout and hardy as far as I know when he went in the service.  
[1595]Dated 15 Aug 1887, Dr. J C FURBER of Overbrook, Osage Co KS "...I believe it was in 1887, he has removed to Florida, hoping that the wildness of the climate there might be beneficial to his health.'
[1604] Marriage record.  
[1587 and 1584]   John H. Brubaker of Douglas Co KS  and David Brubaker of Willow Springs Twp, Douglas Co KS also testified for Cyrus.  Were these the brothers of wife Elizabeth Brubaker Willford?

[1608]  Dated 19 Mar 1912, Ella Harmon, age 63, of Pomona, Franklin Co KS testified:  That she was well and intimately acquainted with the soldier Cyrus Willford deceased for 55 years, that she has known him from his boyhood up, knew him before his enlistment in the Union Army, during the Civil War.  I also know of my own personal knowledge that said Cyrus Willford was not married prior to his marriage to Elizabeth Brubaker, which marriage occurred March 8th 1866.  I also know of my own personal knowledge, that they came to Kansas in 1868 and have lived near Pomona Kansas during all this time.  And during this time said deceased Cyrus Willford lived with claimant [Elizabeth Willford] as husband and wife up to the time of his death, which occurred on March 4th 1912 at the home of my sister in the City of Ottawa, Kansas, and that he was never divorced from the claimant, would also state that said Cyrus Willford was my first cousin.
[1610]  Dated 30 March 1912, testimony by Catharine Houser [Henry] of North Oak St, Ottawa, Franklin Co KS:  I was well acquainted with the soldier Cyrus Willford for over 60 years, in fact from his childhood up.  I know of my own personal knowledge that said soldier Cyrus Willford was not married prior to his marriage to the claimant, Elizabeth Willford (nee Brubaker) which marriage took place March 8 1866 in Richland County, State of Ohio and they have lived together as husband and wife all this time, up to the time of his death.  He died on March 4, 1912 at my home in Ottawa, Kansas, having come here from his home in Pomona, Kansas to be treated by an Ottowa physician.  I also know of my own personal knowledge that said soldier Cyrus Willford was never divorced from said claimant.  My knowledge of these facts came from having lived near him in the State of Ohio and also in the State of Kansas.  
[1613] Mary R. LOZIER, age 64 near William Burg, Franklin Co KS, Pomona p.o., dated 20 Mar 1912:  testified for Elizabeth as a childhood schoolmate in Ohio and as a friend in Williamburg, Franklin Co KS after coming there in 1869.  
[1615] Pomona Republican, 7 Mar 1912:  Cyrus Willford, for forty-years a resident of Franklin County, died at 11:45 Monday night at the home of J H Houser, 804 North Oak street in Ottawa.  He had been staying at the Houser home.  Death was due to a complication of disease.  Mr. Wilford was born in Wayne County, O., October 30 1842.  He married Elizabeth Brubaker March 8 1866, in Richland County, Ohio, and came to Franklin county in 1868.  Mr Wilford settled on a farm in Appanoose Township and has lived there or in Pomona ever since, except one year which he spent in Florida.  Besides the widow, he is survived by four children, three sisters and a brother.  The children are W W Wilford of Peabody, Kans; Mrs A E Wiles of Stratford, Cal; Mildred Wilford of Kansas City, and Berl E Wilford of Pomona.  D Wilford of Pomona is a brother.  The deceased was a veteran of the Civil War and served in Company H 120 Ohio Infantry.  At one time Mr Wilford was taken prisoner and confined for fourteen months in a Confederate prison at Camp Ford, Texas.  He was a member of the Pomona post of the G. A. R.  The body was brought here Tuesday night and the funeral was held from the Appanoose church to-day.  Burial was in the Appanoose cemetery.  All of the family except the daughter in California were here for the funeral.
[1621]  Eliza J. WILLFORD, age 65 of Appanoose Twp, Franklin Co KS testified 27 mar 1912 but the document does not give her relationship.

1860 Census, [use the copy at Heritage Quest] Green Twp, Wayne Co OH, Dwelling 847, Family 866:  Michael WHITMER/WHITWER, age 46 PA, farmer; Magdalena, age 45 PA; Amos, age 19 OH; Maria, age 17 OH; Susan, age 15 OH; Henry, age 14 OH; Nancy, age 12 OH; Elam, age 10 OH; Magdalena, age 8 OH.

This Witwer family is listed in the IGI.  Henry was born 28 Sep 1845 in Wayne County OH to Michael Witwer and Magdalena Winger who were married in 1840 near Orrville.  Henry's siblings were Amos (1841), Maria (1842),  Susan (1844), Nancy (1847), Elam (1849), Mattie (1852).

Sister Susan married Henry Hartman of Company D 120th OVI.  Henry Hartman's biography verifies that Henry Witwer's parents were Michael and Magdalena (Winger) Witwer.  It also states that Henry Witwer died at the hospital at Benton Barracks, St. Louis, Missouri on the date stated above.  For this reason, I don't know if his body was returned home for burial or not.  The Roster says he was discharged on 24 July.  Apparently he died the day after his discharge and did not make it home.
