Family Ties

I am trying to understand why C.M.A. re-enlisted into the Army after being home for eighteen months. One possibility was the fact his two nephews from his brother Ammon had joined the same unit, the 136th Ohio in May of 1864. Possibly from a call for volunteers to shore up the Army of the Potomac around Washington D.C.


Edwin G. Adams was born in this township, December 26, 1841, and was a son of Ammon and Betsey (Converse) Adams. He was the second son of six children, two of whom are living. He was reared on the farm, and educated in the common schools. In May, 1864, he enlisted in Company K, One Hundred and Thirty-sixth Regiment Ohio Volunteer Cavalry, and did duty as a wagoner. After one hundred days of service, he was discharged and returned home. January 26, 1865, he was married to Dilla U., daughter of Frederick and Permilla Parthemore, of Virginia and Pennsylvania. Mrs. Adams was born in Union Township, this county, November 2, 1839. One child was born to Mrs. Adams, viz., Edwin G., born December 15, 1875. Mr. Adams departed this life June 11, 1875. He left at his death, 139 3/4 acres of well-improved mud valuable land, on which his wife resided.
