      " My great grandfather, Frederick Walters, served in Company H, 13th Regiment of the Ohio Voluntary Cavalry. I have obtained copies of his service records, and pension records, which I shall send later. He was a young private, perhaps 21 years of age. His given name was actually Frederick Walter, but we have seen the “s” added by accident, even by family members. The Army records call him Walters.
      "His records show that he was wounded with a shot to the side and he later claimed a grazing shot to the head, the same day as the fall of Petersburg.
      "One wonders whether there exist any photographs. He appears to have lived in Waverly, where his parents are laid to rest. I surmise that is the region of the other enlistments.

      "Durbin Ward was the first man in the county to sign an enrollment paper for troops in the civil war. When the President's proclamation reached Lebanon, he was trying a case at the court house. He hastily drew up a paper containing something like the following: "We, the undersigned, hereby tender our services to the President of the United States to protect our national flag." He signed it, and proceeded with his case. It was soon signed by Milton B. Graham. Only one or two other names were obtained until after the war meeting at Washington Hall, on the evening of April 16. Gen. Ward went into the army as a private, declining a captaincy. He came out a Brigadier General. He was a Democrat, and a decided opponent of the election of Lincoln, yet, when the national flag was fired upon, he at once offered his services to support an administration whose elevaton to power he had opposed. His example and influence did much to unite all parties in the support of armed measures for the suppression of the rebellion." Beers History of Warren County page 787
      "When the war of the rebellion broke out, he was, as is claimed for him, the first man in his Congressional District to volunteer; declining a captaincy, he enlisted as a private. He was a Major of the 17th Ohio, and took part in the battles of Spring Mills, Corinth, Perryville, Stone River, Hoover's Gap and Chickamauga; at the last-named fight, he was shot through the body, and his left arm was disabled for life, and he carried it in a sling through the Atlanta Campaign. Having passed through the grades of Lieutenant Colonel and Colonel, in November, 1865, he was brevetted Brigadier General, " for gallant and meritorious conduct at the battle of Chickamauga.""

    • 20 April 2011 Patrick Tobias email:
      "I too have been searching for his Ohio records but have also come up empty, all the information I have has come from newspaper articles published after his death. Dominick Welter was born in Echternach, Luxembourg on 8 Nov 1839, he arrived in the United States on 26 May 1851 and settled in Tiffin, Ohio with his brother. On 5 Oct 1855, at just 15 years old he enlisted as a private in the 7th United States Infantry in which he got to see much of the pacific northwest, he deserted 17 May 1857. He was living in San Francisco in 1861 when the war broke out but finding that no soldiers were being recruited from San Francisco he went back home to Tiffin and enlisted. During the war he was known for his courage. After his discharge in 1865 he went back home to Tiffin, he then settled permanently in Chicago in 1870. In 1877 during the Railroad Riots Major Welter was called back into service commanding Company A of the Calvary of the Illinois National Guard, later he was promoted to Colonel and given command of the entire First Calvary Regiment of the Illinois National Guard. Because of his skills as a soldier he was made the first ever Secretary & Chief Inspector of the Chicago Police Department in November of 1882 and ran the department until his death on 8 Jul 1885, he suffered a heart attack while drilling 300 new police recruits, he decided to take a short rest at his sisters home in Tiffin but died a few days after arriving. Nearly 5,000 Soldiers, Policemen & City Officials walked in his funeral procession. He was married twice, had 3 children and is buried in St. Boniface Cemetery in Chicago. I have attached a Sketch of Dominick Welter that came from one of his obituaries as well as a picture of his Tombstone [+ close-up]and a few articles. "

      "Mr. C. P. Wheaton.
      . . . August 11, 1862, he enlisted in the Union Army, serving throughout the war, or until mustered out, July 17, 1865. Under General George H. Thomas he saw much hard fighting in Tennessee and on November 30, 1864, at Franklin, Tennessee, in that fierce struggle, he was severely wounded by being struck in the right shoulder by a minie ball. As he lay fain from the excessive loss of blood, the Confederates charged, and in passing where he lay, one attempted to stick him with his bayonet, but young Wheaton shot him with a pistol and thus saved his own life. That pistol he still possesses, and prized highly. While being hauled from the field to the hospital, twenty miles away, two of the three others in the ambulance died, and he himself was more dead than alive. In about six weeks he was able to return home on a furlough. In the latter part of the war he saw service under General Schofield, in the east. He was a member of three different regiments, viz.: 79th, 146th and 183d O. V. I. Returning from the war, he again took up the active life of a farmer. . . ."

      I have copies of his military records from the National Archives (he’s my 2nd great grandfather) and there are records from the Clinton County Infirmary that he is buried at New Hope cemetery. He died July 4, 1903. I just had his death date inscribed on his headstone. The record was in his pension file.
      By the way, John Nelson (he went by both names throughout all the paperwork and I think the E stands for Eden (his fathers name), but I can't find any documentation to tell me for sure. Anyway, he was shot twice in the chest at the end of the war, in Tennessee, and still had one of the musket balls inside him when he died. He had 3 holes in his chest, one where the other ball came in and out and the other one was never removed from what I make out. He was pretty much an invalid after the war and I can see why.

    • 9 Dec 2010 Michael Ford email:
      "When I visited the Warren County Genealogical Society in Lebanon back in September, I accidently happened upon an entry on page 1277 of the Cemetery Records of Clinton County, Ohio for Eli M Williams. It had a familiar ring to it & sure enough it solved one of the mysteries in my family tree.
      Eli M Williams enlisted in the company band of the 12th Infantry Regiment Indiana on 23 October 1861. At that time the regiment was in Williamston, Virginia (now West Virginia) as far as I can tell. He died on 13 Apr 1862 at Warrenton Junction in Fauquier County, Virginia.
      I have been unable to locate Eli in the 1850 census or to identify his parentage.
      On 8 July 1860 he married Jerusha Jane Ford in Warren County.
      On 9 August 1860 he is shown in the census record as living with his wife in Salem Township on the farm of his wife's parents. His occupation is shown as a carpenter.
      On 5 August 1861 a son, James Houston Williams was born to Eli & Jerusha in Harlan Township. (James Houston died 23 Jun 1896 & is buried in West Woodville Cemetery.)
      Following Eli's death Jerusha did file for pension benefits & a Henry Runyan also apparently filed for benefits for James Houston Williams as a guardian.
      There is a guardianship listed under Court Records in 1871 for Eli Williams which I have not obtained but may explain the role of Henry Runyan.
      Jerusha Jane Ford Williams remarried another Civil War Veteran John S White in Warren County on 11 October 1870 which may be a factor in the guardianship as well."

      "The war spirit was soon aroused throughout the county. The national flag was run up on the court house, and was seen floating from stores, workshops and residences. The whole country was filled with the noise and excitement of military preparation. Three companies from the county were soon raised, commanded respectively by Capt. Rigdon Williams, of Lebanon; Capt. John Kell, of Franklin; and Capt. J. D. Wallace, of Morrow. The sight of real soldiers was new to most of the people, and the marching to camp of a company for the three-months' service made more ado than afterward the departure of a regiment who left their homes for three years or during the war. Capt. Williams' company, on Tuesday, April 23, marched from Lebanon to the railroad, intending to take their departure for Camp Jackson at Columbus. Stores and shops were closed, and the people turned out to bid the soldiers adieu. The procession of soldiers and citizens on the road from Lebanon to Deerfield was nearly a mile in length. At the railroad station, the Captain received a dispatch that Camp Jackson was full, and the company returned to Lebanon and encamped at the fair-grounds. The company was mustered into the service of the United States for three months, at Columbus, on May 5; was re-organized and mustered into service for three years at Camp Dennison on the 19th of June, as Company F, Twelfth Regiment Ohio Volunteer Infantry"

He was wounded in the back in an engagement at Cloyd Mountain, in West Virginia, and he carried the bullet in his body until after the war. He was then appointed clerk in the War Department but wanted the bullet taken out of him, and came to Lebanon to have it removed. The operation was performed in Dr. McCowen’s – now Henry Reed’s – drug store, and proved fatal, for he returned to Washington only to die.”

      Martha divorced George in Licking County on 23 Aug 1856
      Martha married her second cousin, Abram Marple on 13 Jun 1861 but George Wilson remained single until the time of his death.
      A 9 Nov 1866 record from the Adjutant General's Office indicated that George Wilson enrolled on 31 Aug 1861 at Franklin, Ohio in Co. B, 2nd Regt Ohio Volunteers, to serve 3 years or during the war, and was mustered into service as a private on 18 Sep 1861 at Camp Dennison, Ohio. The muster roll of Nov. & Dec. 1862 for Co B, reported that Private George D. Wilson was executed as a spy at Atlanta, Ga. 18 Jun 1862. Other documents in the file refer to service Co C, 21st OVI which was refuted by the Adjutant General's Office.
      John Marple was appointed guardian of Davenport Davis Wilson in Licking County on 15 Nov 1865 and filed for a minors' pension (application #123709) on 19 Mar 1866. Pension Certificate #95898 dated 14 Jun 1867 granted an $8 monthly pension to Davenport Davis Wilson commencing 8 Jun 1867 and ending 11 Nov 1868.
      An undated newspaper clipping in the pension file from the Cincinnati Commercial contains a January 6th message from Governor Charles Anderson to the General Assembly of the State of Ohio, encouraging the recognition of the 7 Ohians who were hung as spys as a result of the Great Locomotive Chase. The seven were named (in 18 Dec 1865 correspondence to the Governor from the office of Provost Marshal in Atlanta) as William Cambell, George D. Wilson, Marion H. Ross, Benj. G. Shadrick, Samuel Slovens, S. Robinson and John Scott that "belonged to the party that was sent out by General O. M. Mitchell. The same party that captured the engine at Big Shanty and endeavored to run through to our lines and were captured near Chattanooga, and afterwards hung at this place. They are only about eighteen inches under ground. If the people of Ohio knew as much about this execution as I have learned since I have been here, they would certainly send for their remains and take them home and bury them at the State Capital, and erect an appropriate monument over their remains."
    • Congressional Medal of Honor - from comments left on Craig Manson's GeniaBlogie.net
      Legislation was passed in 2008 to award George D. Wilson, and Phillip G. Shadrach the Congressional Medal of Honor. It expired in 2010 without President Obama acting on it.

      Pension File for Louisa Woodburn, mother of Jackson Woodburn, Co G, 5th OVC, 19 images
      Jackson Woodburn enlisted on 21 Feb 1865 at Dayton, Ohio, for 1 year and was mustered into Co. G as a Private (recruit) on 25 Feb 1865. Less than 3 months later died of measles on 5 May 1865 at Foster General Hospital in Newbern, North Carolina.
      He was the oldest son of Charles Woodburn and Louisa Jane Strowbridge who were married 25 Aug 1842 in Warren County, Ohio by James Coe, Minister of the Gospel.
      On 26 Dec 1868, Louisa Woodburn, nearly 45 years old, of Red Lion, Ohio, filed a "Mother's Claim for Pension" (Application #169762). James McLane and Alpheus McLane gave depositions in support of her claim. In his deposition (image 16 & image 17) James McLane indicated that the family was a tenant on one of his farms and that the father was "a very intemperate man" and was in the habit of spending a part of his and Jackson's wages for liquor. After Charles Woodburn's death on 18 Dec 1863, Jackson was the only support his mother had. When Jackson went into the service, he sent his mother $250 of his local bounty money. Louisa received $4 per month from the county relief fund from the time of his enlistment to about the close of the war and "was in the county infirmary for some months since the death of her son and has no property, all of her household goods having been destroyed by fire".
      Louisa was awarded a pension of $8 per month commencing 5 May 1865 by Certificate #126808 dated 29 Mar 1869. She was last paid $12 to 4 Mar 1898 and was dropped from the rolls due to her death (no date listed).

      "Col. Thomas Worthington has long lived the life of a recluse on the west side of the Little Miami, in this township. He is a son of Gov. Thomas Worthington, graduated at West Point in 1827, and served in the Mexican War. In 1861 he publish
      ed a work on military tactics. Early in the civil war he raised a company, and was afterwards commissioned Colonel of the 46th Ohio. At the battle of Shiloh he commanded this regiment. Col. Worthington has published a history of the battle of Shiloh, and many pamphlets in which he claims that his regiment was, without notice, transferred from the center to the extreme right of the Union line, far detached from the main army; that its right being suddenly threatened, the 46th, by a prompt change of front, attacked and repelled a superior flanking force, till ordered back about 2 P. M., April 6, thus holding the extreme right of the line long enough to make advancing aid available; that this regiment, being a part of Gen. Sherman's division, that officer obtained credit for this service, to which has been imputed the rescue of the Union army from imminent destruction, and to this service is due Gen. Sherman's past promotion and present position. A few months after the battle of Shiloh, Col. Worthington was tried by a court martial on several charges, one of which was the publication of extracts from his diary, containing false and libelous matter, designed to injure his superior officers, Col. McDowell, Gen. Grant and Gen. Sherman. The result of the trial was his dismissal from the service; but the sentence of the court was afterwards declared null and void by the Judge Advocate General, and he received an honorable discharge from the service. In many pamphlets published by Col. Worthington, he has charged Gen. Grant and Gen. Sherman with falsehood, negligence and mismanagement. Being in reduced circumstances, Congress, recently, notwithstanding his repeated attacks on men who stood high in the confidence of the nation, passed a special act granting him a pension."

The Cincinnati Commercial says he was well known in that city. He could not give any direct information of his friends. His funeral took place on Tuesday afternoon at the Congregational Church; the different ministers of Lebanon officiated. His remains were followed to the grave by a large number of citizens.

He went into the country, seized stock from the enemy, and mounted these companies, which performed services as mounted infantry until the battle of Nashville, in which he commanded his company during the two days' fight, and was again seriously wounded about the close of the battle. After recovering from the wound, he was detailed as a member of the military commission in the department of the Cumberland, and there remained about three months, when he again assumed command of his company, with which be continued until the close of the war, when he returned to Lebanon, which has since been his home."

He was married to Miss Mary Schaeffer, November 22, 1864, and to them were born four children, three daughters and one son. The son, Edwin, alone survives the father.

For many years he was a machinist and millwright in the Harding mill, where he was esteemed as a very skillful workman. He had been in failing health for five years and had not been able to work for four years.
      The funeral was held from his late home on last Friday afternoon and was conducted by Dr. C. D. Wilson. The burial was at Woodhill cemetery, where the services were in charge of American Lodge, K. of P., of which the deceased was a member."
