Hi, Nick--

I was tickled to find this post while searching for the 49th Ohio Volunteer Infantry, Company B.

One of the soldiers who was killed was Calvin Bowersox (not Bonersock). He was the brother of my great-great-grandmother, Margaret Bowersox. I have in my possession a copy of a letter he wrote to his sister just before he was killed at the Battle of Pittsburg Landing (a.k.a. the Battle of Shiloh). If you do a search online for Cal Bowersox, you'll find a link to a letter he wrote to a Texas Ranger, too.

I assume Cal's name was spelled incorrectly by someone in the NARA or the War Department or somewhere, and it probably explains why I can't find much about him in the Civil War records!

Thanks for compiling the information here.
