Otto Bardon, of the 102nd Ohio Infantry, is listed as a survivor of the Sultana.
On April 27, 1865, the steamship Sultana exploded on the Mississippi River in what remains the greatest maritime disaster in American. Over 1600 passengers, mostly Union soldiers recently released from Confederate prison camps, were killed either in the explosion, from drowning, or fire.
I am not related to this family, just passing on this information which comes from a webpage called "Sultana Passenger List." The link for the site is listed below.
