Identified Bible Franklin Wilcox 192nd Ohio Volunteer Infantry


Item No. AR80043 Category


Neat little bible carried by Franklin Wilcox of Peru Township, Ohio. This one is dated 1844. Pencil id written inside the front cover reading “Franklin E. Wilcox Peru Huron Co. Co. A. 192nd Reg Ohio O.V.I” A small piece of notebook paper is tucked inside the bible which is stenciled with his name and county as well as a little inscription reading “This bible gifted from mother & carried while in the service until discharged”. Inside the back cover he has inscribed “Peru, Huron Co. Ohio Franklin E. Wilcox Inlisted Feb 22nd, 1865 Co. A. 192nd Reg O.V.I. Discharged May 15th, 1865”. The regiment would spend their short time in the service performing picket duty along the Shenandoah, Harper’s Ferry and the vicinity of Winchester. The binding is pretty rough on this one but still intact barely. All the pages are intact. Definitely seen a lot of use over the years. Nice little bible with great id.
