The forty-seventh annual reunion of the veterans of the 35th O.V.I. was held at Hamilton last Thursday. In this association are most of the veterans in Lebanon and in Warren County.

Meyers delivered the address of welcome, and Judge J. W. O’Neall gave the response. A memorial address was given by James Fitton. Miss Olga E. Herman sang “Tenting Tonight On the Old Camp Grounds” as a solo after which two more addresses were delivered by E. A. Belden and Rev. J. H. Moorehead. Other members gave short talks and the meeting was closed with the singing of “Marching Through Georgia.”

"Our Museum" by Hazel Spencer Phillips
The Western Star, Lebanon, Ohio, Thursday August 5, 1948
[The Warren County Historical Society has a collection of the
"Our Museum" articles published from 18 Sep 1947 to 28 Oct 1948 in a binder at their library - Call #977.176 Phi]

Historians of Warren County have written that Durbin Ward was the first volunteer of his county in the Civil War. When President Lincoln issued his call for Volunteers on Monday morning, April 15, 1861, Durbin Ward, a promising young attorney, was trying a case in the Warren County Court. He immediately drew up a paper pledging those who signed it to the service of his country, signed it, and proceeded with the case. We have often wondered what became of the paper thus signed and who the others were who, in the first fever of patriotism, followed down the list of volunteers.

Recently there has come to us a long paper containing the original roll of Volunteers for the 35th Regiment at Lebanon. Believing this list to be of considerable historic interest and values the names as signed, with penciled notations of rank, is now printed.
Original roll of Volunteers enlisted by Oliver H. Parshall for the 35th Regiment O. V. M. at Lebanon, on Sept. 4th, 1861:

A receipt made out to Mrs. Belle Parshall, his wife, for the sum of $10.00, for the portrait and the frame is signed by Marcus Mote, and may also be seen in our museum.
