Tracking Down a Civil War Soldier info
His name was Captain Charles S. Marsh. (Yes, the name is not a coincidence, he's my great-great-great-grandfather).
He served as a Captain in a Ohio Artillery Unit. (My family are all Buckeyes originally).
And that's about all I know about him. I don't now in which unit, in which army, (I am going to guess Army of the Potomac as thats where alot of Ohio Units were) and have no idea in which campaigns he might have fought in or what happened to him.
(Rumor has it: he had children, but that is a unsubstantiated rumor )
Does anyone know where I might be able to find out more information? Perhaps a muster list or something?

Have you tried Ancestry.com yet?
I hate newspapermen. They come into camp and pick up their camp rumors and print them as facts. I regard them as spies, which in truth, they are.

This is a decent site...
I found a Charles J Marsh on there, from an Ohio Artillary regiment, but not a Charles S Marsh
Here is the soldier search, it doesn't give much, but may help
