Julius Henry Derek Behme (Click to enlarge)       Julius Henry Derek Behme mustered in to Company K, 67 th Ohio Infantry on Aug. 2, 1862, and mustered-out at Fortress Monroe, Virginia on July 6, 1865. Frederick, his oldest son, mustered-in at the age of 19 on Nov. 7, 1861. He is listed as having died of disease (I believe the measles) at Cumberland, Maryland on March 19, 1862 and is buried in Antietam National Cemetery, in Sec. 1, Row B, Grave 83. Anton mustered-in at the age of 18 on Nov. 18, 1861 as a corporal and transferred to the 30th Company, 2nd Battalion Veteran Reserve Corps on August 21, 1863.
      These military records were sent for by my grandmother Donna Hinds. Copies are available for interested parties by contacting her or myself. As time permits I will transcribe the information listed on the records here. No pension records have been found so far. The text listed in italics was filled in by hand at the completion of the form.
