Hello, I am searching for relatives of Elliot Bejamin Rozell. He was born in 1822 in Kentucky (Grant Co. I hear).. His parents were Elliot Rozell and Mary Williamson Rozell. He married Harriet Jane Beale on November 12, 1845. Elliot enlisted in the 83rd Regiment, Indiana Volunteers on 8/20/1862 at Versailles, In. He was mustered out of the service in 1862 as a Corporal. In 1863, Elliot died on April 26th at the Marine Hospital in St. Louis, Mo.
Here is our question....Military records indicate that Elliot had died of fever, however, family stories say that he died in a parade when a heavy field cannon exploded. After his death, his widow married his brother Sidney S. Rozell in 1864. Elliot's last name is listed as both ROZELL as well as ROSZELL. Any help would be appreciated! Would love to hear from kinfolk!
