Julian B. CONN - Civil War photo

This is a photo of Julian B. CONN (born about 1844 in Ohio), wearing his Civil War uniform. The photo was taken in Cincinnati, Ohio. What happened to him? According to the Civil War Soldiers and Sailors System, he served as a private in Company H of the 34th Regiment of the Ohio Infantry and left as a corporal. Other Conn families went from Huntington County, Indiana to Washington County, Arkansas—how does Julian fit in?

Julian was last seen in the 1860 census in Cincinnati, Hamilton County, Ohio in the household of his parents, John E. Conn (born about 1817 in Ohio) and Mary A. (born about 1821 in Ohio). They were still living in Cincinnati for the 1870 census.

Julian B. Conn had several siblings:

--John E. (born about 1846 in Ohio; died after 1870)

--Caroline or Clara (born about 1849 in Ohio; died after 1870)

--Charles A. (born about 1852 in Ohio; died after 1870)

--Kate (born about 1854 in Ohio; died after 1870)

--Jessie F. (born about 1857 in Ohio; died after 1870)

--Mary E. (born about 1859 in Ohio; died after 1870)

--Joseph E. (born about 1862 in Ohio; died after 1870)

--William (born about 1864 in Ohio; died after 1870)

  1. This photo was found in the small photo album which was in the posession of Rachel Draper Divelbiss b. 1842 d.1920, wife of David Divelbiss, daughter of Albert and Rachel Sparks of Huntington County, Ind. David and Rachel moved their family to Washington County, AR following the Civil War. There is no evidence that JB Conn was ever in Arkansas or indication of his connection to the Draper/Divelbiss family. The photo album's pictures indicate it dates to the Civil War period.
