Re: [Overmyer_History_and_Genealogy] 72nd Ohio Volunteer Infantry
- Thanks for the great link Mary!
The Rutherford B. Hayes Museum has several images and
transcripts of the Overmyer family in the U.S. Civil
War. Also in our group "Files" links is a large Excel
spreadsheet called "OVERHIST- Military Services.xls"
which contains much data. If you click on the attached
pages, there is a sheet about John & Simeon Overmyer's
Civil War Summaries. Pan down to Simeon's to see a few
notes about the 72nd Ohio.
Also, a friend of mine, T.J. Johnston, wrote the
historical fictional book "The Boys from Kalamazoo"
which also features mention of the 72nd Ohio.
The book is also "on-line" at the Target store
