I am the GGGGranddaughter of S.W. Hardesty. His real name is Sylvester Walker Hardesty born about 1844 in i believe Meigs Township, Muskingum Co., Ohio. He volunteered in 1863 at the age of 18(possibly). He was shot and relieved from further duty in Atlanta, GA, but I don’t know when. He received his honorable discharge on 25 August 1865. He died in Bozeman, MT on 7 July 1918. He grew up a farmer, and went back to farming after the war. He was married to Mary J. King in 1867 and lived in Meigs Township, Ohio. They had five children and I am descended from his oldest son, John A. Hardesty. If anyone has anymore information about him, please let me know.
