Dear Mr. Poe,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub.
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the series Carded Medical Records of Volunteer Soldiers in the Mexican and Civil Wars, 1846 - 1865 in the Records of the Adjutant General's Office, 1762 - 1917 (Record Group 94) that may have a file for James A. Poe. The cards are arranged by state, thereunder by numerical designation of organization, and thereunder alphabetically by initial letter of surname. The cards include the name of the soldier; rank; organization; complaint; date of admittance and hospital to which admitted; date returned to duty, deserted, discharged, furloughed, or died; remarks; and reference to the original hospital record. Some of these records have been digitized and are available using the Catalog. For more information about the non-digitized records, please email the National Archives at Washington, DC - Textual Reference (RDT1) at email@example.com.
We also located Regimental and Company Books of the 1st Ohio Cavalry Regiment, which include Morning Reports for Companies F - M, Descriptive Book for Companies H - M, and Order Book for Companies A - D, F - G, and M. The records for Company M may include information regarding James A. Poe. For assistance with these non-digitized records, please email RDT1 at firstname.lastname@example.org.
