    Seeking Civil War enlistment requirements

      My vet (John Hays) was born in OH and by 1860 lived in IL. I'm trying to determine if a record I found belongs to him or another by same name. The record I have shows him part of an OH regiment & his widow, Sarah, filing her application for pension there. Same name as my ancestor's widow, but why would he be part of OH regiment if he had moved to IL? Thanks
