Lenhart Leasure was a cousin of my direct line. We have letters from him throughout the war. One at least one site I have seen him listed as a deserter, not sure of the details behind that, but we have letters from him toward the end of the war with the 16th Illinois Cavalry.

Admin reply: Could you send me the info you have for the website? I would very much appreciate it. Thanks. -- CJD

I am the Great Great Grandson of Abel R. Farnsworth. Abel was in Co."B" of the 78th. He served throughout the war, until the march North towards Bentonville. Upon crossing the Salkahatchie River / Swamp, Abel contracted "Dropsey", or Chronic Diarrhea. He continued with the regiment until just before Bentonville when He was sent to the Hospital in Beaufort N.C, Where He Died on 13 April 1865. I have not been able to find any records of Abel's interment. If anyone knows any information about Abel Farnsworth, I would Very Much Appreciate an E-mail! For some reason, the register of Deaths, lists Abel's name as William. It is possible that He was buried by that name. His Wife Martha may be intered near Him too, as we can not find her grave site Here in Ohio.

I am related to the Samuel McCune-Nancy Hammond family of Bloom Township, Morgan County, Ohio. Thus far I have learned they had two sons in the Civil War, both with the 78th O.V.I. John T McCune was wounded at the Battle of Stone Mountain (Tennessee) on 31 Dec 1862 and died in a Nashville hospital on 245 Jan 1863. His brother William G B McCune died 20 Apr 1865 but I do not know the circumstances.
