Birth: Feb. 24, 1824

Death: Oct. 30, 1902
Indiana, USA

Joseph Ax, born Feb. 24, 1824 in OH, was a 40-year-old draftee, assigned to Co. G, 38th Indiana Infantry on Oct. 20, 1864. He was mustered out eight months later on June 29, 1865 in Louisville, KY. Throughout much of his civilian life, Ax labored as a farmer and miner. When he was 28 years old, Joseph married his fiancée Elizabeth M. (1837-1906) in 1852. Together they had the following known children: Ira (b. 1853), Eliza (b. @1856), Mary Fancy (b. @1859), Florence M. (b. @1862), Ida Bell (b. @1867), and Viola Grace (1880-1880).

U.S. Census records reveal that the Ax family seemed to move around a bit in post-war Indiana. In 1870 they lived in Barr Twp., Daviess Co., IN; in 1880: Harmony, Clay Co., IN. Twenty years later, they were listed as residents of Van Buren Twp., Daviess Co., IN. Joseph was approved for a federal veteran's pension on Aug. 15, 1883 (app. #492,704; cert. #434,935 - Indiana). He passed away at age 78 on Oct. 30, 1902. His wife Elizabeth applied for a widow's pension on Nov. 10, 1902 (app. #772,981; cert. #548,488 – Indiana).
