My Great-great Grandfather was Sgt. Peter Burton Lupardus, Company G. He and his wife, Joanna Cain, immigrated to Miller Couny, Mo in 1868. Family legend has it that he was injured in a "wagon accident" and received a medical disability discharge in July of 1862.

I'm related to PVT Lemuel Dover, Co. D, 78th OVVI. He was a cooper (barrel maker) from McConnelsville, OH, Morgan County. Served the whole war apparently without a scratch. I have a xerox of the diary of one Wm. Gault, Co F, 78th, I copied at the Ohio Historical Society (microfiche) in Columbus. Very useful for map-tracking the 78th throughout the War. I am currently searching for a copy of "The History of the 78th OVVI From It's Muster-In To It's Muster Out" by Rev. Thomas M. Stevenson, Chaplain of the Regiment. Any help out there?

James Hamilton Mathers, Private in Company H from October 1864 to July 1865 is my ancestor. He is listed in the regimental history with the substitutes and drafted men added to the regiment.

I do not have a lot on this family. He was born in Washington County, Pa in 1829. Moved to Ohio with his parents. Married Charlotte Gardner, raised his family and died (in 1881) in Athens County, Ohio.

He also had at least four brothers that served in Ohio regiments. Alexander and David served in the 75th OVI. Joseph and Mathew served in the 1st OVI.

I'd love to hear any information on this line.

Samuel Fordyce of K company was my g-g-g grandfather. He was born in Pennsylvania on 26 February 1818 and died in Indiana on 13 August 1900. I am named after him. He and my grandmother were very close; but, sadly, I have no stories to share. He is buried in Brown County, Indiana.

My grandfather Ulyston Snyder was a pvt in co.K 78th OVI.My father never really knew his father because he died in 1900 when my dad was only about 3. If anyone has any information about the 78th that would include some information about my grandfather it would be greatly appreciated. my grandfather lived in Noble county around Summerfield.
I would guess that I am in a minority of people that had as close a relative who served in the civil war. I would be happy to hear from anyone sharing this honor.

William Snyder
