Company L
George W. Hall - Private   
This solid Union soldier left no children, but he is remembered kindly by the descendants of his brother, Elijah S. Hall. George W. Hall (from Coal Run OH) enlisted in Company L on Sep. 16, 1861, and left the regiment at the end of the war on July 10, 1865 at Columbus OH. This man rode and fought throughout the war with tenacity, and suffered few injuries. His pension records show that he was wounded at the Battle of Stones River, where his regiment charged Rebel cannons across a field of frozen corn stalks: the cannons blasted his horse and he fell upon his back in the frozen field, gouging his back on the frozen cornstalks at the left side of the base of his neck. He was soon riding and fighting and participated in the Battle of Chickamauga, and later was sent on detached duty as an orderly and accompanied Sherman on his March to the Sea. The 1st Ohio Cavalry was a worthy regiment that deserves to be represented here: although George was not involved in that expedition, a detachment of men from the 1st Ohio Cavalry volunteered to disguise themselves as Rebels and cut deep into the South at the end of the war to intercept the fleeing Confederate President Jefferson Davis. I have a copy of the published history of this regiment by W. L. Curry if anyone wants to know more about their service, or your ancestor was in the regiment. After the war, we know that George W. Hall lived briefly at Deadwood SD by 1877, and it is said that his wife and kids were murdered by Indians. He eventually died on the West Coast.

Company L
Lyman W. Hall - Private   
Lyman W. Hall was a brother of George W. Hall, who served in the same regiment. Lyman W. Hall joined company L on Jan. 18, 1864, having previously served in the 1st Ohio Artillery (where he was discharged after suffering a serious back injury in a horse accident). At least part of his service in the 1st Ohio Cavalry consisted of being a cook for the regiment. His regiment served in the final battles to capture Atlanta, and later made a deep and destructive incursion into Alabama at the beginning of 1865. Lyman was present during all these campaigns, and left the regiment on Sep. 26, 1865 at Nashville TN. He had married an older widow named Elizabeth Cheeseman in Washington County OH, and left no children of his own, dying of diabetes at Harmar OH at age 42 in 1877. He is herein commemorated by the children of his brother Elijah S. Hall, another Union Army veteran.
