John W Ferguson - Private   
John Ferguson is my great great grandfather. I found out that he was a memeber of this regiment from his pension records. He was given a pension due to injuries he received at Bermuda Hundred. From the application it appears that he fell in a ditch/trench while taking rations to the front. The pension record is consistent with the infomation on the regiment. This regiment was a hundred day regiment. It was only active 100 days. It was to be used mainly as a labor unit for digging ditches and freeing up longer serving units for fighting the army of Nothern Virginia.
His obit is below. John Ferguson and his wife purchased a farm just outside of the town of Mechanicsburg located in Champaign County Ohio. The farm is still in our family today.

From ‘The Morning Telegram’ of Mechanicsburg Friday February 17, 1905

Funeral of J. W. Ferguson

Mr. J. W. Ferguson, one of Mechanicsburg’s oldest and best known residents, died Wednesday evening about nine o’clock, at his home on High Street, at the age of 73 years. Deceased had been in poor health for several months, but a short time ago he contracted a severe cold which resulted in pneumonia. The funeral will he held from the home this afternoon at 1:30 o’clock, Rev. Haines officiating. Interment Maple grove cemetery.

Note: at the bottom of the same newspaper on February 17, 1905
All soldiers of the war of ‘61-’65 are requested to meet at G. A. R. (Grand Army of the Republic) hall at one p. m. today to attend the funeral of J. W. Ferguson - J. C. Culbertson, Com.

Mustered in at Camp Chase, May 6th, 1864, as an Ohio National Guard unit, 867 men, James B.

(From: The Military History of Ohio. by H.H. Hardesty)

However, I have not been able to substantiate the assignment of the 134th to the 2d Bde, 3d Div, 10th Corps, Army of the James. Rosters of units assigned that I've found do not reflect the 134th.

This link lists all the members of the 134th. http://www.itd.nps.gov/cwss/regiments.cfm Henry's name is spelled Crusy on the muster
