Dear Mr. Sheffield,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We recommend that you review NARA’s African American Heritage website, especially the Archives Resources section, the Subject Portal, and the African American Records: Freedmen's Bureau web pages as well as NARA’s Rediscovering Black History blog and the History Hub response to How do I search for my family’s history?.
We also recommend that you contact the Ohio State Archives, National Afro-American Museum & Cultural Center; African Americans in Ohio, Special Collections - Africana Studies, Knox County Historical Society for information about African Americans from the Civil War through the present. In addition, you may wish to search the Knox County Veterans Services, Knox County Ohio World War II Genealogy and Civil War websites for additional information and/or resources.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
