I hope you are still online - I am researching Lake Co.,OH Civil War veterans - I have a Thomas Roff who was one of the 1st volunteers for the 7th Ohio Vol. Infantry in April 1861. Company records state he entered the service June 7th, 1861 for 3 yrs. He was wounded in the right leg, by grapeshot during the battle of Dumfries, Va., Dec. 27th, 1862; discharged for wounds at Wash. D.C. March 9th, 1863. Military records at ancestry.com state he was age 31 when he enlisted, which birth year would be about 1830. I just located your message and then checked 1860 census for Lake Co.,OH - whoohooo ROLF, Thomas age 30 b. New York, Melissa age 20 and Lilla age 1 living in Mentor, Lake Co.,OH. Is the CORRECT spelling Roff or Rolf ?
Would you please email me personally, as I research him locally (I live in Lake Co.,OH) I may be able to locate further data. (ruthsprowlsATwindstreamDOTnet)
