Birth: 1839
Lorain County
Ohio, USA
Death: Aug. 13, 1862
Lorain County
Ohio, USA

Sam volunteered for civil War army service by enlisting in the 103rd Regiment, Ohio Volunteer Infantry, August 13, 1862, in Lorain County. His name is not in the Official Roster of Ohio Soldiers because he drown while swimming in the Black River between his enlisment and reporting for duty at Camp Cleveland Ohio. He would have served in Company H. His military headstone is in the photo to the
right of the Fields Cemetery sign standing alone, upright, in the photo to the right.
He was never mustered in he has no military service record and should not have been able to get a government headstone. The question is, how did he qualify for it?
Neither he nor any family members appear in the 1850 or 1860 U.S. Census listings for Lorain County Ohio.
