Jacob Jeffers enlisted in the 100th O.V.I., Co. A, from July 31, 1862 to June 20, 1865. He was born in Harrison County, Ohio, and resided in or near Tontogany, Wood County when he enlisted at age 24. His military records say he enlisted as a musician and held the rank of private. The military records say that he participated in the following battles and skirmishes: Knoxville, Tenn. Rocky Face, Rasacca [sic], Pine Mt., Pumkin [sic] Vine Creek, Kennesaw Mountain, Decatur, and Atlanta, Ga., Columbia, Franklin and Nashville, Tenn., Fort Anderson and Wilmington, N.C. The muster rolls show him present throughout the time of enlistment except in August 1864 when he was sent to a general field hospital near Atlanta. The record does not say why he was sent, but another note in the record says he was on duty in Feb. 1863 as a hospital nurse, so perhaps he performed the same service at the Atlanta hospital. In an affidavit dated May 25, 1895 to the pension department, he complained about pain in the left side lower back caused by carrying a cartridge belt loaded with 40 rounds of cartridges almost continually day and night during the Atlanta campaign from May through August 1864. Also he had corns on the bottoms of his feet caused by the hard forced marches on dry hard roads in hot weather. Soon after the war ended, Jacob moved to Iowa, then Nebraska, then back to Iowa. He died in Altoona, Polk Co., Iowa, on November 21, 1921. If he had letters or diaries of his war experiences, they apparently were lost along the way. Jacob's brother, Marvin, was in the 67th O.V.I., and was killed in the assault on Battery Wagner on July 18, 1863. Jacob's brother-in-law, Ira Ward, was in the 21st O.V.I., and was captured at the end of the fighting at Chickamauga, Ga. He died a year later in the Andersonville prison, about the same time that the 100th was in or near Atlanta.

Thomas Hartshorn was a substitute for Doctor Peck who was a physician in Perrysburg, Ohio. Thomas is buried in Fort Meigs Cemetery in Perrysburg, Ohio. He got sunstroke while on the march and then transferred to the 72nd Battalion Invalid Corps.His ancestor is Rob Adkins see the ancestors page.

Lewis McCrory was born in Wooster Ohio, November 5, 1835. His father Samuel was from Mifflin Co. PA and was married to Hannah Pennypacker. They moved form Pennsylvania in 1836 to Wood Co. Lewis had a very large family, brothers John, Co. H 21st Ohio, James, Jacob, Samuel and Daniel. His sisters were Mary, Elizabeth, Hannah and Liddy Ann. Lewis started his own family by marring Caroline Gorton on February 10, 1856. On June 9 1862, Lewis joined the 100th Ohio, Company A in Portage, Ohio. Lewis’ army life became more of a survival test than day to day combat. He was one of the unfortunates taken at Limestone Station and sent to prison. He was sent to Belle Isle until the massive release of many there. With the threat of losing Richmond most of the prisoners were paroled but some were sent to Andersonville. Lewis arrived there on March 13, 1864 and remained until March 27, 1865. After his release he was sent to Vicksburg to come home. Lewis was aboard the Sultana when it exploded. He held on to the wreckage for nine hours until the ongoing fire caused him to let go. He finally made it to shore and was saved. He was discharged in Columbus May 21, 1865. After the news of the Sultana made its way to Caroline she was grief stricken but when Lewis finally came home the shock of seeing him was terrible and she died seven days later. Together they had four children, George, Silas, Frances, and Lewis. Lewis remarried in 1866 to Julia Taylor and they had four children, Florence, Mary, Delia and Tyrphena. Lewis was a staunch Prohibitionist and was a deacon at the Disciples Church. He is buried in Rudolph-Bethel Cemetery in Wood County, Ohio.
