My great-great Uncle.

Uncle Albert enlisted in the Ohio Infantry at Kent, Portage Co., OH, about Jun 9, 1861, as a Sergeant/Private in Co F of the 7th regiment of the Ohio Vols. He was honorably discharged at Louisville, KY the Aug 2, 1865 at the close of the war.

During the war he was admitted to G.H. Fairfax Seminary near Alexandria, VA, Aug 18, 1862, for about 3 months with Erysipelas and returned to duty Jan 1863. He received a slight wound on the left cheek at the battle of Dallas, GA, on May 25, 1864. Entered Gov't Hosp for about five weeks at Chattanooga, TN, Jun 2, 1864 with G. S. flesh wound left thigh, was returned to duty Jun 7, 1864. He was wounded in left leg and right eye by explosion of a shell at Lost Mountain Jun 10, 1864.

He was 5 feet 6 inches tall, light complexion and light hair and blue eyes.
