KNOWLTON posted by William Dale Allen on Thursday, November 27, 1997

First question: Does anyone know which Union Army Militia Regiments recruited in Portage county from 1861 to 1865? We are trying to pin down which of our KNOWLTONs may have served in the Civil War. Second question: We have been unable to determine where our Jared Wright KNOWLTON came from when he migrated to Portage County. He was born in Connecticut, married in Massachusetts, and may have lived in Rensselaer County, New York before Portage County. It might be that he migrated to Ohio with other New England families shortly after the War of 1812, since he was a veteran of that war. Any help would be greatfully appreciated.
