Regarding the Battle @ Limestone Station, TN and Ohio troops.

Seeking any information on a battle that my great-great g'pa, Dan CARNICOM was in during the Civil War. He was enlisted in Company K of the 100th Regiment Ohio Volunteer Infantry. On September the 1st,1862 he was mustered in by C.O. Howard, Captain 18th Infantry, U.S.A. at Camp Toledo. On the 8th of September, 1963, almost one year to the day after enlisting, Dan was captured, as was his brother and a majority of their comrades at Limestone Station, Tennessee. There is little to no reference about this confrontation anywhere.

Date posted: Sunday, June 1, 1997

I have found my great-great-grandfather goes back to being born in Sandusky, Ohio. His one son, (Clarence MYERS) was born in 1894. So, I am not really sure when his father, George W. MYERS was born in Sandusky, Ohio. My guess is around 1872-1874. This would have made him around 18 years old when he had Clarence. Anyways, I know that George W. MYERS father was named Phillip MYERS. Also, I do know that Clarence MYERS had a possible brother named Harold MYERS, born around August 1900. George W. MYERS married a lady from Flint, Indiana, but do not have a date, but her name was Anna Bodey. If anyone can help me with getting more information on this family, I would certainly appreciate it greatly. Thank you very much.
