This web site contains a PARTIAL list of disabled veteran soldiers who were admitted to the Dayton Soldiers Home. This is not, by any means, a complete list. Many of these soldiers are buried in the Dayton National Cemetery.

This information was transcribed from copies of the original Register of Members, 1867-1935, Central Branch, Dayton, Ohio. The entire set of registers containing 76,999 records, and three indexes to the registers have been microfilmed by the National Archives. A complete set of microfilm (55 rolls) is maintained by the genealogist at the Dayton VA Medical Center specifically for the purpose of researching disabled veteran soldiers who may have lived at the Dayton Soldiers Home or may be buried in the Dayton National Cemetery. The Register of Members contains the Military History, Domestic History, and Military Home History for each veteran, including death and burial information if the veteran died while living in the Home.

In addition to the Dayton Soldiers Home registers, cemetery records for the Dayton National Cemetery are also accessible by the genealogist.

If you believe you have an ancestor who may have lived in the Dayton Soldiers Home or may be buried in the Dayton National Cemetery, you can submit a research request to Carolyn Burns, Genealogist at

The information provided about each veteran is set up in six columns:

  • Veteran Soldier (name as it appears on the register)
  • Company (unit information)
  • Enlistment (date of veteran's enlistment)
  • Date of Death (only available if veteran died in the Home)
  • Reg Nbr (number on the page of the register where the veteran's information is located)
