SERENDIPITY: I note that in a old 1987 genealogy magazine a researcher had received in error from the Veterans Administration in Cleveland, OH, a copy of the Civil War records for John Schaab, a private who enlisted in Cleveland on 20 Oct 1862 in Co.I, 25th Reg., and transferred to Co. B, 107th Reg;, Ohio Volunteer Infantry. He was discharged 19 Oct 1865 in Charleston, SC. There were over 90 pages or records including service, pension, and medical records.
John was born 17 Nov 1846 and married Rosa Wise on 28 Nov 1867 in Rockport (Cuyahoga Co.), Ohio. They had ten children: Carrie 1869, Rosa 1871, John 1872, Alma 1875, William 1877, Roy 1879, Lydia 1881, Lee 1883, Daisy 1888, and Floyd 1891.
John Schaab died 23 Feb 1926 in Eastlake, Michigan.
Although I am sure the copy of these records she was offering are long gone, it is hoped that this information will provide just the right clue to a researcher who can then obtain his/her own copy. Be sure and request the complete file!.
Using the death date you can also obtain a microfilmed copy of the newspaper (death notice or obiturary) for the two days following death via your reference librarian and the free interlibrary loan program; she has books which tell her which newspapers were in business in particular areas in particular years and where she can obtain a copy for you to view.
You can also order a copy of the death certificate for more information.
