Interesting, my 3rd great-grandfather, Peter Allen, fought with the USCT 32nd Reg't Co. K on James Island during the Civil War.
His discharge papers from the CW are quite informative, although from Shelby County, Ohio he enlisted at Waterford, PA, was trained at Camp Penn, discharged in Beaufort, SC. The paper states he was born in Bedford, VA. he was 38 y/o, 6 ft. 1 in. tall was of a Black complexion, Black hair, Black eyes
Peter Allen lists his "home" address as MInster, Auglaze (sp) County, Ohio which was approximately six (6) miles from his farm in Shelby County, Ohio.
