I dedicate these pages to the memory of my Great-grandfather, George Baum, who at the age of 43 joined the 4th OVC in 1862.

If you would like me to locate someone for you that is not yet on this list, please e-mail me: Karin Corbeil -

Please only send requests for information on persons you think were in the 4th OVC. There were two other units also called the "4th Ohio Cavalry". See: Other "4TH's. If you are not sure, go HERE for information on how to find which regiment your ancestor served in. 


If you have any memorabilia, letters or photos relating to the 4th OVC, I would be most grateful in receiving copies to add to this website.
