Even in Genealogy – We Benefit from Helping Others
After a wonderful holiday weekend I’m back to transcribing a local GAR Roster from 1908. I found the Roster in the papers of the Daughters of Union Veterans of the Civil War 1861-1865, Lizabeth A. Turner, Tent 23. I’m a member and have access to this fabulous genealogical info! The GAR held their encampment in Lima, Ohio in 1908. So that’s probably the reason for printing this roster.
Mart Armstrong is the name of the GAR Post and it was No. 202.
So today we’re getting the veteran’s names and regiments as listed on page 2 of the roster:
Conner, George – Co. D 54 OVI
Custar, Jacob – Co. A 151 OVI
Carr, Solomon – Co. E 180 OVI
Clausing, Theodore – Co. K 56 OVI
Clutter, D. W. – Co. G 71 OVI
Clark, Alva – Co. A 49 OVI
Carter, Wm – Co. K 99 OVI
Crum, Henry G. – Co. G 87 OVI
Copeland, George H. – Co. I 34 OVI
Charters, John – Co. F 43 OVI
Conrath, Israel – Co. F 206 Pa Inf
Craig, Jordan S. – Co. E 81 OVI
Dobbins, T. W. – Co. E 180 OVI
Davis, E. F. – Co. F 118 OVI
Davis, J. G. – Co. B 99 OVI
Dilley, Henry – Co. D 52 OVI
Donze, C. F. – Co. A 38 OVI
Davis, Samuel – Co. E 13 OVI
Dunifon, Peter – Co. K 46 OVI
Decker, Francis M. – Co. C 17 OVI
Dickason, John – Co. F 9 O V Cav
Downing, S. D. – Co. L 50 N.Y.V.I.
Dukeman, A – Co. F 125 OVI
Daniels, R. F. – Co. M 10 OVI
Drew, Solomon – Co B 118 OVI
Douglas, Wm – Co. D 180 OVI
Evans, S. D. – Co. F 20 OVI
Edman, Elijah – Co. B 151 OVI
Elliott, Wm. V – Co. K 15 OVI
Francis, Owen – Co. H 57 OVI
Flath, Philip – Co. F 37 OVI
Frushey, Calvin – Co. K 66 ILL.V.I.
Foster, T. E. – Co. C 151 OVI
Fletcher, Samuel M – Co. D 136 Pa. V. I.
Fisher, A. Lewis – Co. E 101 OVI
Furguson, Samuel – Co. F 4 O. V. Cal
Fisher, Chas – Co. I 46 OVI
Faurot, Wm. N. – Co. C 129 OVI
Feeman, Robert – Co. C 102 OVI
Goldsmith, Joseph – Co. A 15 OVI
Garner, Wm. V. – Co. E 81 OVI
Now something cool for me in doing the transcribing is the side notes I scribble down to eventually follow up on. Faurot is a well-known surname of one of this city’s prominent citizens of the late 19th century. So, was William Faurot a brother to Benjamin Faurot? I’ll have to check it out!
I recognize the name John Charter from my work with the 4th OVC. but this John Charters was a veteran of the 43 OVI. I want to do some research and see if he reenlisted with another regiment.
Finally one of my Van Meter’s, George S. was killed during the war serving with the 9th OVC. Could John Dickason, Co. F 9th OVC help me out with my research on George S. Van Meter?
It’s pretty neat how I’m benefiting with new research ideas from doing some transcribing that I hoped would eventually help someone else in their family history research!
