Asa Wilmoth Olin

Died: 16 Jan 1864 Camp Relief, Washington DC

Asa was the son of Deacon Joseph Mitchel Olin and his line was >Ensign Caleb Olin> Henry Olin> John Olin I.

Asa died serving as a Private in the Union Army in the Civil War. Recently I was teaching a class on using military records to discover biographical data about ancestors and I used Asa as my test case for my students.
