Gardner D Newcomb. He is my great grand father on my mother's side. Born in Maine, went to Ohio, enlisted in Co. 1, 62nd Regiment Ohio Volunteers, December 1861. Was wounded Fort Wagner S.C., honorably discharged August 24, 1865. I have copies of all of his military commissions as well as a photo of him. If anyone is interested to receive copies, I am happy to send through. His son was George Newcomb of Creston, Iowa. The only pharmacist in town.
