More Wms. Co. Men







    Many Civil War soldiers are not found on the lists.  Sometimes by checking the neighboring counties you can locate them. However; we will post the names of those men who may have been missed as they are found by researchers. 

My Williams County ancestor from Springfield Township named Bradford Barber who was a private in Company D, 10th. O.V.C. served out of Camp Cleveland died at Andersonville Prison on Nov 9th. 1864.  He does not show up in the roster on your web page but this is some information that I obtained from the National Archives.  He was listed on a roster that I saw once in the Bryan Library. [Ed note: His name was misspelled Barber, Radford - ck Roll of Honor under Co. E  9th O.V.C]
At age 30 Bradford Barber was 5'-5 1/2" tall, Dark Complexion, Grey eye's, and Dark Hair. He enlisted on Oct. 11, 1862 Camp Cleveland for 3 yr's of service in the Company D. 10th. Regiment of the Ohio Volunteer Cavalry under the command of Colonel Charles C. Smith. He was wounded at Clairburn Ga. during Gen. Kilpatrick Georgia Campain on Aug 24, 1864 with a gun shot in the left forearm. He was taken prisoner while at the Union hospital at Sandtown Ga., then transported to the Andersonville Ga. prison hospital where he died of starvation on Nov. 9th. 1864. He was listed as company cook on payroll records in June 1863, and as teamster on Oct 1863. Absent from service at Louisville KY. April and May 1863 From the medical records report: Wounded in the left fore arm, bone fractured, gun shot wound was at the battle of Red Oak near Claiburn, GA. on August 19, 1864 and transported to hospital at Sandtown, GA., on August 24, 1864 he was taken prisoner and then transported to Andersonville GA. and died of Chronic Diarrhea and Starvation.
His widow Jane (Richard) Barber who resided in Stryker and later married David Franklin Brown. I hope this helps
