There was a Solomon Lightcap in Company K, 120th Ohio Infantry. He was on the City Belle when it was sunk on the Red river in Louisiana.The 120th OVI lists no further record but he was erroneously then listed as transferred to the 114th OVI and later 48th Bn OVI. If there was no further record in the 120th OVI they were assumed to be alive when the 120th OVI was disbanded and the names were automatically transferred to the next unit. The City Belle was sunk 3 May 1864 and the 120th OVI was disbanded 27 Nov 1864. Solomon Lightcap was from Holmes County, Ohio and was the son of James Jacob and Elizabeth (Gilbert) Lightcap. No pension was ever filed.
