Frank English was born in Alexandria, Virginia on 10 April 1847. His death certificate lists his mother as Mary Nevins and father as “don’t know.” Frank was mustered into Company B, 1st Ohio Heavy Artillery on 15 May 1863 and mustered out 25 July 1865 at Knoxville, Tennessee. He was living at 262 S. Monroe in Columbus when he died 2 August 1918. He is buried in section 74 of Greenlawn Cemetery.
He received a pension for his Civil War service (application 851128, certificate 612950), and his widow also received a pension (application 1125119, certificate 866832). He is a part of my 1st Ohio Heavy Artillery project on WeRelate.org; his specific page can be found here. If you have any additional information about Frank or any other member of the 1st OHA, please feel free to add it to the site.

I plan to add more tombstones of Civil War veterans as we move closer to the Sesquicentennial next year.
