I'm looking for info concerning my great great grandfather, Jacob Schell. He was born in Miami County, Ohio, in 1831 (different from Jacob Shell also born in Miami County the same year) and died in 1872 in Kansas (I assume the state) a few years after the Civil War, in which he served 3 years in the 29th Indiana Infantry and survived several major battles. His wife's name was Anna, and their children were George Washington (born in Indiana, possibly Plymouth, and changed his name from "Schell" to "Shell" before marrying), Annie, Henry, and James.
