Veterans Formed Groups-- Part 1

From the Dec. 25, 2011, Newark (Oh) Advocate.

I previously wrote about the 76th Ohio Volunteer Infantry (OVI), but there were other veteran organizations in the area.

31st OVI--  had annual reunions at Hebron at least through 1906 when 86 veterans attended.

113th OVI--  had a reunion at the Memorial Building in Newark on September 17, 1897.

3rd OVI--  held reunions to at least 1911.

Just like with our World War II veterans today, they started dying off.
