Thank you all for your generous help. Unfortunately, the
Lewis Wolf in question is not the one I am researching;
HOWEVER, I found out a lot regarding researching Union
soldiers. I am researching for my minister and the Lewis
Wolfe I am trying to locate in the Union Army was 31 when he
immigrated from Germany in 1854 to Brown County, Ohio. A
book published in 1913 with a short biography of Lewis's
stepson states that Lewis Wolf was a soldier in the Union
Army from Ohio. Lewis was still living as of at least 1880.
It would have really been interesting if the Lewis I am
looking for had been with the 53rd. From what I've read it
appears that this Regiment participated in the Battle of
Atlanta and of Jonesboro. MY ancestor, James Seaborn Camp,
was too old to be in the Confederate army and served in the
State Militia instead.
Sherman's troops crossed his land three times during the
Battle of Jonesboro. Wouldn't have been interesting if my
ancestor and my minister's had crossed paths so long ago?
Thank you for helping point me in the right direction. If I
may be of assistance in any of your research in Georgia,
please don't hesitate to ask.
