Portion of Regiment's history: "At Utoy creek a portion of the regiment (Cos.

In the charge at Jonesboro the regiment lost out of 360 men, 42 killed and 108 wounded, making a total loss of 150 men. The regiment then marched up through the Carolinas with Sherman, participated in the grand review and was mustered out at Louisville, Ky., July 12, 1865. Hiram was one of the wounded as he mustered out on June 15 1865 at Dennison Hospital, Columbus, Ohio. (Information taken from the Official Roster of the Soldiers of the State of Ohio.)
"...when in response to his country's call he joined the boys in blue by enlisting on the first day of September of 1861 in Company K, 38th Ohio Volunteer Infantry. Here he saw considerable active service, being in a number of important engagements, prominent among them were the battles of Mell Springs, Pittsburgh Landing, Siege of Corinth, Stone River, Chickamauga, Mission Ridge, and all the engagements during raid to the Atlantic up to the Battle of Jonesborough. He was always found faithful in the discharge of his duties, and was honorably discharged on the 5th day of June of I865. He was severely wounded at Jonesborough in the shoulder. After the close of the hostilities he returned to the old home in Ohio, and there remained until 1868, when he emigrated northward to Lenawee county, Michigan, and there resided until 1873, which year witnessed his arrival in Ingham county. Locating here he settled in Leroy township and bought eighty acres of wild timber land. This land he cleared and placed under cultivation, and made all the improvements thereon, erecting good buildings, fences, etc. Here he resided continuously for 31 years or until 1904 when he rented this place and took up residence in Williamston.
In the year of 1865, during the month of October, our subject was united in marriage to a Miss Joella Harrow, a native of Kentucky, but then a resident of Lenawee county, Michigan.
