My ancestor, Elias MILLS B: 1826 D: 1868served honorably and was discharged and came home to Lewisburg,Preble county. Ohio. I have copies of his pension file, that when Julia applied for his pension.
Where he died 3 years later of a "Sore Throat".
He left Julia Ann HEFFNER with way too many children to take care on their farm.
The family was broken up, the farm lost, and Julia Ann had to take in wash and ironing to keep the roof over her head. She died 1913.
Very sad tale as most in those days.
