Military History of Ohio - Jackson Co. edition


COL. DOVE POST, NO. 301,

Was organized the 12th day of March, 1883.
Captain David Dove, in whose honor G. A. R. Post, No. 301, at Coalton, was named, entered the service at the first call as second lieutenant of Company K, Eighteenth Ohio Volunteer Infantry, three months service. As soon as that company was discharged he recruited a company for the Second West Virginia Cavalry, and was made captain of the same. He was wounded in the service, which wound caused his death in the spring of 1868. His body now rests in what is known as the New Cemetery, near Jackson, Ohio. He was a man self-made under very adverse circumstances, and was well liked by all who knew him. He was assistant assessor of internal revenue for the Eleventh District; resigned on account of failing health, and H. C. Miller was appointed in his stead.
