Welcome to the 105th Ohio Volunteer Infantry Project!

The 105th Ohio Volunteer Infantry (or 105th OVI) was an infantry regiment in the Union Army during the American Civil War. It was organized at Cleveland, Ohio and mustered in for three years service on August 20, 1862 under the command of Colonel Albert S. Hall. The regiment was recruited from five northeastern Ohio counties.

The 105th Ohio Volunteer Infantry Project seeks to memorialize the men who served in this regiment.

The GOALS of this project are to:

1) Research all 1099 soldiers that served in the 105th Ohio Volunteer Infantry, document their families, and tell their stories so they are not forgotten. Current status 829 or 75.43%.
2) Make WikiTree the most complete repository of reference materials of the soldiers who served in the 105th Ohio Volunteer Infantry.

This project is a volunteer effort. You are most welcome if you would like to join,

Here are some of the TASKS that I think need to be done. I'll be working on them, and could use your help. Edit this page and post your name next to the task to show you are working on it!

1) These soldiers need profiles and/or family trees! Can you help create them?

2) Create additional pages.
a) Build a page about the forage train incident. See the “Cleveland Daily Leader’, (Cleveland, Ohio), 30 Jan 1863, page 3
b) Identify a list of reunion books and then, for each one, update soldier profiles for their speeches, performances, committees, attendance, dues paying and death.
c) Design and create a calendar page or pages that could be filled in with the day-by-day activities and events of the regiment.
3) Enrich the pages
Enrich the company roster pages with stats about the company.
Find photos of and artifacts related to these soldiers! I have a Pinterest that has all discovered to date!
Discover and document more family relationships between regiment members on the Family Relations page
Research and document links to resources including diaries, letters, books, newspaper articles, pages and records on the Resources page
Add battles, enlistments, muster ins, captures, releases, wound, resignations, deaths, muster outs, letters, news articles, diary entries, etc., etc., etc. to the calendar page(s) once created.
Transcribe letters on page of William H. Johnson.
Transcribe letter on page of Albert A. Champlin.
Check out and include the sources at ACPL Genealogy Center
Prepare a list of final resting places of the 105th. (Requested by the 105th -Reenactor’s group.) - In progress
For unmarked graves, would the government or the military still place markers? What’s involved?
4) Special research projects.
Chapter 68 (March 13, 1865 – April 9, 1865)
At this time the regiment was about ready to move and the boys were scattered around town. All were ordered to report at once. Sergeant Major Whitmer had been sent over on the opposite side of the square where part of the regiment had been, previously detailed to help extinguish the fire. On his way back he passed General Beard’s headquarters of the 14th corps when two citizens from the opposite side of the street accused the Sergeant of being one who helped steal a barrel of flour. The guard called out “Halt!” When Whitmer replied that he was a member of the 20th army corps, that he had nothing to do with the flour, for some reason unknown to any of us, Whitmer did not stop. The guard again called “Halt!” but he passed on, when the guard raised his gun and fired, the ball entering the back part of his head, passing thru and coming out just back of the forehead. (The guard who shot him was a member of the 105th Ohio regiment, Beard’s brigade, 14th army corps.) The boys of the regiment were so worked up and fearing a riot the Colonel moved the regiment across the river, leaving a detail to take charge of the corpse and give him a decent burial.
Who was this guard from the 105th?
  • Can these miscellaneous Ford’s be connected?
a) Betsey (Ford) Stearns (1809-1845), m. Geauga County
b) Roswell W. Ford, (1808-1828) who shares a gravestone with Levi W. Stearns (1835-1836), in Lake Co., Ohio
c) Ettie Ford in 1870 census of Persis A. (Clarke) Atkin Merrifield (1834-1873) is Ashland Co., Ohio

This is awesome work. Well done and thank you to all involved.

I can't help with the 105th OVI, but have a discovery about family names names in another Ohio Regiment (28th OVI) that might prove worth watching for.

My g'g'grandfather George Michael Schmieg (1839-1902) was, according to both family and official records, a Civil War Veteran with rank of Corporal, Co G, 28th OVI - the 28th Ohio Volunteer Infantry Regiment - NARA Publication: "Index to Compiled Service Records of Volunteer Union Soldiers Who Served in Organizations from The State of Ohio."

I couldn’t find Corporal George Schmieg in the official roster published soon after the end of the “War of Rebellion” - but found a note on alternate entries in the national record of same. Searched again, more thoroughly, while imagining alternate spellings.

Eight Schmiegs are listed as serving in the two forces. By state: Ohio (5), New Jersey (2), District Of Columbia (1). All were infantrymen.

Conrad Schmieg has the sense to have just one entry: he was from DC. Maybe he had a family connection to Ohio - was that where his wife and children would "shelter from the storm"?

John Schmidt was also Henry B Schmieg from New Jersey - all other details I have been able to find align.

All five from Ohio are “our George”: - Schmick, George - Schmieg, George - Schmig, George - Schuck, George - Schuk, George.

Yet none of these appear in the roster, for 28th, as Corporal or Private. Was he transferred to another Company? I will have to look. Or is he the “George Schieck” who enlisted aged 20 on June 13 1861, when “our George” was days short of 22.

I haven't yet added George Michael Schmieg (1839-1902) to my small contribution to WikiTree, because I'd really like a few more sources confirming what I think I know. I'm working my way through some German records now and think I have found him, and if so, his lines in a very small town in Germany back to 1600. If it stacks up, that's well worth adding.

But who would have thought the official records would contain five entries for one person. Did it also happen in the 105th?

Thanks, Frank, for the kind words! This regimental research is truly a labor of love.

I sympathize with your George and his last name variants. When a name is not consistent in the records, it really makes things challenging! But it is rewarding when the pieces fall into place.

Coincidentally I have a Private George W. Shuick or Smiack or Shuack or Shuac and possibly Showke in the 105th Ohio Volunteer Infantry. All I've found for him (so far) is his military and marriage records. I know he died quite young, in 1869 in Oregon, from his pension records, but that is all. The link to him is https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Shuick-1.

There are quite a number of individuals who have first and last names variants, either due to spelling or transcription issues or due to perhaps a personal choice. A few examples are: Private Bacilla Hornstine (https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Hornstine-1) - Basila, Benjamin? Sergeant Wilson Shannon Hultz (https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Hultz-76) - Hulse? Private Robert Alexander Kirk (https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Kirkpatrick-4562) - Kirkpatrick? Corporal George J. Squier (https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Squier-376) - Squiers, Squire, Squier?

Best of luck in your research, Cathryn

I find this page is very impressive!
