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.
