142nd Ohio Infantry      
Company C
Robert H. Smith - Private   
Pvt. Smith is not a relative of mine, at least I don't think so. I am making a map of the Bladensburg Cemetery that they never before had. He is buried in that Cemetery and he just needs to be added to the list of men that served in the Civil War. I would very much like to know when he died, and why his grave is here at Bladensburg, what connections?

William Wallace McKay - Private   
I would like to correspond with anyone who might have additional information on the 142nd OVI. My grandfather was one of the soldiers who served in this unit. I have researched this regiment and have written it up but would like to find some additional primary information to include in the history. Any information would be appreciated.
