Youngest soldier in the Civil war from Kosciusko county was Thomas L. Hubler, who enlisted as a drummer boy a year after his father, Major Henry Hubler, was called to arms. Hubler was a member of Company E of the 12th Indiana Infantry. He was an uncle of Logan H. Williams, publisher of the Warsaw Times and Union. Hubler lies buried in Oakwood cemetery.

Delving into the records, the WPA workers found that one of the four men who captured Jeff Davis, president of the confederacy, is now buried in the Leesburg cemetery. The man was Preston W. Brown, born on May 6, 1854. Brown died on April 20, 1910. He was a corporal in the 5th Michigan Cavalry.

I suppose that's what they called him in the olden days.
