Civil War Draft record

Today of all days (Memorial Day) I was looking through Military Records on and I found a "draft record" for Rily Goins of Licking County, Ohio. The 'draft record" is really a book with a list of names in it. It says that Rily Goins was born in 1836 and he was 27 at the time. It also says "colored" but " born in Germany". Every data point, 27, "colored" and the name Rily, matches the person I have come to know over the years except the "born in Germany" part.

What to make of it?
