John Cunningham

by Mike Neeld


John Cunningham, 14 years old, ran away from home in Kentucky (unk. town) to Ohio. Ended up joining the 48th Ohio, Co. A, one of 3 Cunningham's listed in this group. Received a mini ball in leg while at Shiloh battle. Carried with him to his internment at Leesburg Cemetery, Leesburg, Ohio. He is Carol A. Cunningham Neeld's great-great-grandfather (wife of 5th generation funeral director, Mike Neeld, Xenia, Ohio). He was later incorporated in the 183rd Ohio and eventually back into the 48th.
