Alvah Perry  39  (1823 - 1886)  He would be Capt of Co D until 14 Apr 63, when he would be  promoted to Maj for the 90th OH.  Please see the F&S Page for his bio.  It is my understanding that there was no Capt for Co D from 14 Apr 63 until 1 Jan 64, when John M.

Lutz, Noah  20?  (1833? - 1913?)  Mustered in with the company at age 19, which would make him born about 1843, but the burial records at New Olive Branch Cemetery in Fairfield Co, OH show his dates as 1833 - 1913, meaning he would have been about 30 in 1863);  He was discharged on a Surgeon's Certificate on 29 Feb 64

 

 

McDaniel, Jacob H.  19?  (1846? - 1905)  Mustered in with his older brother, Thomas J. McDaniel on 29 Aug 62, however I suspect both boys lied about their ages.  Jacob said he was 18 in 1862, but his birthdate in the cemetery records is  9 May 1846, which mean he would have been 16 when he enlisted;  The 40th Reunion book mentions he was wounded at Chickamauga on 19 Sep 63;  He would be wounded at the Battle of Nashville on 15 Dec 64 and would receive a Surgeon's Discharge from the hospital in Louisville on 13 Jun 65;  He is buried in the Fairview-Ritter Cemetery in Fairfield Co, OH

 

 

McDaniel, Thomas J.  22?  (1844? - 1916)  Like his younger brother in the bio above, he was the son of Samuel and Elizabeth Handshey McDaniel, and also like his brother, I suspect he lied about his age--telling the recruiting officer he was 21 in 1862 would make him born about 1841, but his burial records from the Violet Twp Cemetery in Fairfield Co, OH show his birth year as 1844, making him about 18 when he enlisted;  He mustered out with the company on 13 Jun 65;  He married Eliza J. Bennett and died in 1916

Soliday, Solomon D.  17  (1845 - 1924)  He was born in OH to Jacob and Mary (Deering?  Doering?) Soliday;  Each Census Record, 1850 - 1880, finds him living in Fairfield Co, OH;  Mustered in with the 90th OH, Company D, as a Pvt in Aug 62;  Sol's diary was one of the sources used in writing the book, although none of his diary speaks of Cripple Creek;  An amusing story is related about "Sol" and Sgt. Parsons following the Battle of Chickamauga on p. 186 in the 40th Reunion Book (Basically, Sol wanted a new gun and Sgt. Parsons saw that he got one); Sol was appointed Cpl on 22 Mar 64;  Mustered out with the company in Jul 65;  In 1870, he is an unmarried Farmer in living in Fairfield Co;  He married Mary Jane Archer in 1872;  He filed for an Invalid's Pension in 1890 from IN;  Mary Jane died in Allen Co, IN in 1896;  Around 1899, he moved to Iowa, where he married Alida Archer in Montgomery Co, IA in 1900 (although he was still listed in the 1900 Census for Allen Co, IN where he was a Furniture Salesman);  I cannot establish a definite relationship between Sol's wives--Mary Jane was the daughter of John and Jane Archer, Alida was the daughter of William and Alice Archer;  In 1910, the Solidays are still living in Montgomery Co, Iowa, where Sol is a Carpenter;  The same is true for the 1920 Census;  Sol died in 1924 and was buried in the Evergreen Cemetery in Montgomery Co
