U.S.C.T. Soldiers Buried in Ohio

(United States Colored Soldiers in the Civil War)



Dedication Ceremony - Section # 13






  • The website features a map of Ohio linked to region pages. Each region page is further linked to a page for each county.
  • 3050 names are now included in the database, which we believe represents roughly 50% to 80% of all USCT soldiers buried in Ohio. These names were obtained from the Graves Registration Database of the Ohio Adjutant General's Office, which totals about 100,000 names in its entirety.
  • The site has been carefully rechecked, not only when inputting graves registration data into our database, but also during an "editing run" to ensure correctness and accuracy with the cards.
  • About page giving details about the project. Also, thank-you's to the many people and organizations who have either worked on the project directly or been a great help to us in our work.
  • Photo page showing photos from cemeteries in selected counties. Currently, pictures are available from cemeteries in 24 counties.
  • Contact Us page to allow anyone who visits our website to get in contact with us via e-mail, postal service, or phone.
  • Links page linking to other useful Civil War and USCT websites.
  • By summer 2002, we expect to have an alphabetical search function completed. Keep checking our website for updates on this important function, through our Alpha Search page.
