Born in Germany in 1835, Adolph Jost (aka Yost) adopted Cincinnati as his American hometown. He served in Company K of the renowned 4th Ohio Volunteer Cavalry Regiment during the U.S. Civil War from October 10, 1861 to March 25, 1863 when he received a disability discharge. Returning to Cincinnati, Jost was employed as a “bar keeper.” He died on April 20, 1904, his body being cremated. The cremains had been held at Hillside Chapel, 525 West Martin Luther King Drive, unclaimed by relatives, descendants, or anyone else. The 4th Ohio Volunteer Cavalry Descendants Association discovered the cremains’ location and decided that 117 years was long enough for Private Jost to await burial. May 21, 2021 was the date of the burial of the long-forgotten cremains of a local Civil War soldier.
