Can anyone tell me why so many young men enlisted at Ashmore in the 3rd Mo. Calvary? Have four Morris men that I believe to be brothers in Co. H. 3rd Mo. Cal. and they all enlisted at Ashmore. Ambrose D., John W., Malon J.,and William Morris. I have a picture of these four in their uniforms. Know they were born in Ohio and are listed in the 1850 Butler Co. Ohio census with parents and other siblings. John W. was the ggrandfather of my husband. I will share what info I have on this family.
