    Enlistment in the Ohio National Guard:

    With the close of 1877 the veterans began to drop out on account of expiration of service and the first discharges granted came to Sgt's Kindall and Ingle and Corp. Lewis Ingle and Alonzo L. Marlin January 1878. Throughout this year the majority of the first to enlist were discharged for expiration of term of service and many other for permanent removal beyond the limits of the command. During this year and 1879 the loss was met by many re-enlistments and new enlistments of an excellent class of recruits. Many changes took place and promotions were made. Before the summer encampment, Lt. Carson was lost to the service on account of removal to Licking Co., Ohio, in the election which followed Sgt. Major Gross was elected to fill the vacancy made by Lt. Carson's resignation.

    The following is the roll from 1870-1880.
