I was pleased to find one of our ancestors listed among the First Regiment, Company 
C veterans: Isaiah Jervis. You mentioned that any information about the genealogies 
of the soldiers would be appreciated. Here is what I know of Isaiah Jervis.  Isaiah 
Jervis was born about 1824 in Ohio. His father was Thomas Jervis, born in Maryland. 
Isaiah married Rebecca Campbell in 1849 in Carroll County, Indiana. Their children 
were born in Indiana, also. They include Enoch Ward Jervis, Ross Jervis, Mabel Jervis, 
Addie Jervis, Emerson W. Jervis, and Lavina Jervis. Isaiah Jervis died in Indiana.
Enoch Ward Jervis married Malissa Jane Grant in 1884, Carroll County, Indiana. 
The name had also been spelled "Jarvis" on census and marriage records. Thank you 
so much for the information you provided on your website. We didn't even know that 
Isaiah had any military experience!  Source for this information is Rhonda Sheagley
