78th Family Guestbook

Thank you for posting the regimental poster! My GGG Grandfather Menander Mott served in Company K. Injured in the Atlanta campaign, and died in 1875 after 10 years of living with painful shrapnel wounds from the war.

What's especially exciting is to see other names from our genealogical charts also in Company K: his father-in-law Samuel Fordyce (my GGGG Grandfather), and some Hays and Jeffers. I knew the names, but now I see they were all neighbors. Fascinating!

My great-great grandfather was Samuel Hurrel and served in company F. He was taken prisoner and was incarerated at Andersonville. Upon release, he was on his way home but died of scurvy before he made it home.

My great grandfather Oliver J Boyer was in the 78th Ohio Inf. His granddaughter (my grandmother) came to Seattle in 1923 where the family has pretty much remained - His family today numbers well over 100 no doubt. I have his compass and picture of his wife (Susan Green) and 3 children he carried all thru the war.

Like so many families of Monroe County, Ohio, I have numerous ancestors (from 8 direct bloodlines) that served in the 78th OVI. Any photos, especially those with identifications, are invaluable to me; however, a clearer understanding and view from their perspectives gives me a deeper understanding of what's behind and beyond the photos, letters, and journal entries.

Admin reply: Thanks for the comment. My own 78th OVVI ancestors are also from Monroe County. With eight different bloods that you cite, we might be related! :o

My great-great-great uncle was Henry Cox, who joined Co F in October 1863. Would love to know more detail about him and Co F.
