ENLISTED MEN of BATTERY B WHO WERE AT
CRIPPLE CREEK - Part 2
Leary, William* 38 (1823- 1865) Mustered in 5 Sept 61; He was wounded and captured at Chickamauga on 20 Sept 63; He was held at Andersonville and later exchanged (date?) and died "of disease" on 10 June 65 in Bridgeport, AL; Buried Chattanooga National Cemetery, but there is no record of his burial there
Lee, Alonzo Darwin 21 (1841 - 1908) Mustered in 5 Sept 61; He transferred to Battery K on 6 Apr 64; In 1868, he moved with his family to Michigan
Leonard, William R. 18 (1834 - ) Mustered in 9 Aug 62; Mustered out 25 Jun 65 in Chattanooga, TN; He filed a pension request as an Invalid in 1899 from Colorado; That's the end of what I know for certain, but here is an interesting possibility: There was a William Leonard, born in KY in Dec 1834, a widower who was a Miner in 1900 in (Ready for the irony?) Cripple Creek, Co!; There is a William R. Leonard in the Denver, CO City Directory for several years between 1903 and 1918, but I beleive this man was William Ryan Leonard, born 1854 (or 52) in PA and died in Denver in 1918--no mention of Civil War service in his bio and he would have been too young, anyway); And there is a William R. Leonard who is the Postmaster in Leonard (San Miguel Co.), CO in 1905
Lepper, John 20 (1841 - 1921 ) Born in 1841 in what would become WV; Mustered in 5 Set 61; Vet; Mustered out 22 Jul 65; He filed a petition as an Invalid in 1908 in OH; His widow (Mary J.) filed a pension petition in 1921, also from OH; He died in Hancock Co, OH
Lewhellen, William 23 (1838 - ) Mustered in 10 Aug 61; Transferred to Battery K on 6 Apr 64; His pension record has him listed a Battery E, but I believe this is the right man; He filed as an Invalid in 1892 and his widow (Margaret L.) filed her petition in 1906(?), both from OH
Long, Henry A. 18 (1838 - 1901) Mustered in on 9 Aug 62; Mustered out on 16 Jun 65 in Chattanooga, TN; While the birth year of 1838 doesn't match with his being 18 when he was mustered in, it is the date shown with his burial record; He died on 10 Mar 1901 in Cleveland of strangulation
Luster, George 28 (1833 - 1904) Born in Ohio, he lived most of his in Cuyahoga County; Mustered in 10 Aug 61 as an Artificer; Mustered out 12 Jan 63 as a supernumerary by order of the War Dept (What, exactly, does this mean?); His pension record only lists his service in Battery B of the 1st OH, but his military tombstone indicates he served in Battery B of the 23rd OH Light Artillery; Likewise, his Compiled Service Record only lists the 1st OH; Did he enlist in the 23rd OH LA after he left Cripple Creek?
McCowen, Henry H. 33 (1828 - 1911) Mustered in 5 Sept 61; Vet; Mustered out 22 Jul 65; Invalid pension request filed 1890 from OH; Buried Wood Lawn Cemetery in Cleveland; Cause of death: Old Age; The family spelled the last name McCowan
McFarland, William* 32 (1829 - 1864?) Mustered in with original group on 5 Sept 61; Military records show he died "of disease" on 10 Jan 1864 in Nashville, TN; Yet, there is an Invalid Pension application dated 23 May 1879

Mace, Henry 33 (1828 - 1904) Born on The Isle of Man in Great Britain, he settled in Cuyahoga County, OH circa 1850 and resided there for the rest of his life; Married Harriet Burlingame in Cleveland in 1866; He was an Engineer; The 1890 Veterans' Census incorrectly lists him as having been in the 19th NY LA; Mustered in on 26 Jul 62; Transferred to the Veterans' Reserve Corps on 27 Feb 64; Buried in the Woodland Cemetery, Cleveland
Manning, Peter 21 (1840 - ) Mustered in on 5 Sept 61; Vet; Mustered out on 22 Jul 65; There is a Peter Manning b. <1840> in Ireland living in Ashtabula Co., OH in 1880 with his wife Maria, their children, and his Uncle John Barrett; there is also a Peter Manning b. <1840> in Ireland living in Portage Co., OH in 1870 with his wife, Maria, and their son; Are either of the Peters in the Census records the same Peter who was at Cripple Creek? What became of the 1st OH's Peter Manning after 1865?
Millman, Francis X. (Recklee, Franklin G.) 20 (1843 - 1924) Born in what would become West VA; Mustered in 5 Sep 61; Appointed Cpl 8 Nov 64; Mustered out 8 Jun 65 in Cleveland, OH; His Military records list him as Franklin G. Recklee, but virtually all other documents list him as Frank (Francis) X. Millman; There is never any explanation for why he was listed as Frank Recklee on the Roster; In 1870, he and his wife lived with his parents (Henry and Mary Millman) in Cumberland, Allegheny Co., MD (Frank is listed as a Farmer, his father is a Farmer and Gardener from Hanover); Frank filed his Invalid pension application in 1894 from MD (Recklee is noted as an alias); In the 1880 Census, he is listed as a Gardener in Cumberland, MD; In the 1900 Census for Cumberland, MD, his occupation is Florist; His widow (Sarah A. Millman) filed for his pension in 1924, also from MD; Buried in the Sts Peter and Paul Catholic Cemetery in Cumberland, MD
Mooney, Hugh B. 23 (1838 - ) Mustered in on 1 Oct 61; There was a Hugh Mooney, born circa 1840 in Ireland, who worked as a Mason in Cuyahoga Co, OH in 1870--is this our Hugh?
Morris, Cuyler 18 (1844 - 1869) Born in Huron Co., OH to Myron and Elvira (Blodgett) Morris, he was mustered in on 7 Aug 62; Mustered out on 16 Jun 65 at Chattanooga, TN; He died 20 Sept 1869; (I wish I knew more about this young man with the unusual name! About 100 years later, a man named Cuyler Morris was co-founder of the Morris yacht-building firm--a relative?); Buried in the Grove Street Cemetery in Huron Co
Nagle, George* 21 (1841 - 1864) Mustered in on 11 Aug 62; Died on 8 Oct 64 at Bridgeport, AL hospital, buried at the Chattanooga National Cemetery, with a curious notation in the record book of internments to "switch stones" between George Nagle and the man buried next to him (James W. Cain)
Naylor, William 40 (<1821> - <1883>) Mustered in on 10 Aug 61 as Wagoner; Discharged 18 Apr 63 on surgeon's certificate of disability; Filed for pension as an Invalid in 1878; His widow (Mary A) filed her pension application in Nov 1883

Pease, Royal Edwin Allen 23 (1838 - 1916) Born in Geauga Co., OH to Royal Anson Pomeroy Pease, (so he literally comes from a Royal line!) Mustered in with the original group of recruits for the 1st OH on 5 Sept 61; Vet; Mustered out on 22 Jul 65; After the War, he married Caroline Reinheimer and moved to Sandusky, Erie Co., OH and remained there for the rest of his life; He worked for many years for the Railroad and later as a Laborer; Buried in the Oakland (Sandusky) Cemetery

(listed elsewhere) and Edgar were brothers; Mustered in on 1 Oct 61; Wounded 20 Sept 63 at Chickamauga; He was mustered out with the regiment on 22 Jul 65; Edgar went west and died in California; (Who was Charles D. Peet, aged 40, of Battery B? )
Penfield, Fletcher Starr 18 (1844 -1913) Born in Ohio to Lathrop Penfield: Lathrop, as well as some of his family, had come to Ohio from NY. Lathrop's brother, Gideon, was part of this migration. Gideon's son, Philo, enlisted the day before his cousin, Fletcher (It should be noted that Gideon's son, Lewis, had already been in Battery B for almost a year when his brother and his cousin were mustered in; The same is true for Harlan Penfield (listed elsewhere), who was mustered in the same day as Lewis, who was his second cousin once removed--confused yet?); Fletcher mustered in on 9 Aug 62; Mustered out on 16 Jun 65 at Chattanooga, TN; Worked as a Merchant in 1870 and as a Bank Clerk in 1880; Married Sarah Bassett in 1872; Worked as a Cashier in 1900; Fletcher spent most of his life in Springfield, Clark Co, OH both before and after the War and was buried there in the Ferncliff Cemetery
Penfield, Philo Alanson 18 (1843 -1913) Born in Lorain Co., OH to Gideon Penfield (as mentioned elsewhere, Gideon and Lathrop were brothers, making their sons, Philo and Fletcher, first cousins--and, if you have already read the entries for the other Penfields in Battery B, you will note that Philo is the brother of Lewis R. Penfield who was a Sgt in Battery B); Mustered in on 8 Aug 62; Mustered out on 16 Jun 65 at Chattanooga, TN; Philo returned to Lorain Co. after the War, but by 1880, he and his family had removed to Oceana Co., Mich, where he spent the last few decades of his life
Potter, Thomas Corwin* 20 (1841 - 1863) Mustered in on 5 Sept 61; He was one of the five men voted by his comrades to be placed on the Roll of Honor created by Gen. Rosecrans in Mar 63; Tragically, while fighting at Chickamauga on 20 Sept 63, he had both arms shot off by the premature discharge of a gun--he died the next day (21 Sept 63); Buried in the Chattanooga National Cemetery, his grave listed as Thomas E. Potter
Radder, Charles B. "Carl" 32 (1830 - <1873>) Born in Germany (Mecklenberg, Schwerein); Arrived in America in Jul 53; He married Francisca Bressler in Cuyahoga Co. on 11 Oct 55; He became a naturalized citizen on 28 Mar 59; Mustered in on 13 Aug 62; In June 63 he is included in a Draft Registration with a note that he has been in the service for 13 months (since April 61?) and is "still in service" (home on leave?); His occupation is given as a Laborer or as a Printer; Mustered out on 16 Jun 65 in Chattanooga, TN; Worked as a Laborer in Cleveland in 1860 and as a Painter in 1870; Still in Cleveland City Directory in 1873 (although there are also a Charles H. and a Charles E. listed during the same time frame); Buried in the St. Joseph's Cemetery in Cleveland; His widow (Franziska) filed her pension application in 1873

Recklee, Frank G. -- See Millman, Francis X.

Renouard, Stephen Decatur 28 (1827 - 1872) Born in NY to William H. and Electa (Adams) Renouard (older brother of John W. Renouard of this battery); Military sources suggest he was born in 1833, but family sources give his birthyear as 1827; Mustered in on 5 Sept 61; Vet; Mustered out on 22 Jul 65; Lived the remainder of his life as a Farmer in Penfield, Lorain Co., OH; Married Mrs. Mayette Cornelia (Forbes) Reynolds in 1868 in Medina County, OH; Buried in the Penfield Cemetery; He may have gone by his middle name
Richards, Martin Van Buren 18 (1843 - 1917) Born in OH; Mustered in on 5 Oct 61; Vet; Mustered out on 22 Jul 65; Lived most of his life as a Farmer/Laborer in Darke Co., OH; (Not to be confused with the Martin Van Buren Richards (1840 - 1922) who lived in and served from Wisconsin!); Married Elmira "Ella" Harding in 1888; Martin and Ella are buried in the Palestine (Universalist) Cemetery in Darke Co.
Richmond, Lester Jerome 19 (1842 - 1924) Mustered in on 8 Aug 62; At one point, Lester lay ill in a hospital in Nashville, TN for 3 months. Even if this were after the Battle of Stones River, Lester would have had at least a few weeks at Cripple Creek--and perhaps the whole time, if his hospitalization occurred at some other time during the War; Mustered out on 16 Jun 65 in Chattanooga, TN; After the War (1866), he married Mary A. Dalglish, the daughter of Robert Dalglish. (Was this the same Mary who was the younger sister of fellow-artilleryman Walter Dalglish?); Is he a cousin of the man in the next bio?
Richmond, Lyman Arthur (Some of his military records list him as Lyman B. Richmond) 32 (1829 - 1878) Born in OH, he lived most of his life in Cuyahoga County; Married Emma Ruple in 1853; Mustered in 5 Sept 61; His Compiled Service Record does not tell when he was appointed Cpl, so he may have been Pvt Richmond when he was at Cripple Creek; Vet; Mustered out on 22 Jul 65; Married Susan Lindsay in 1869; He was a Rail Road Man who was working as the Night Depot Master at Toledo's Union Depot on 27 Nov 1878 when he was struck by a "pony engine" and died from his injuries; Is he related to the man above--perhaps a cousin?
Ripperton, John A. 22 (1838 - 1889) Born in Medina Co., OH; Mustered in on 5 Sept 61; Vet; Mustered out on 22 Jul 65; After the War, he settled in Noble Co., IN
Rosborough, James A. 18 (1844 - 1916) Born in Canada; Mustered in on 5 Sept 61; Vet; Mustered out on 22 Jul 65; Is this the same James A. Rosborough who joined the Regular Army after the War? Pension as an Invalid filed in Ariz in 1895; Widow's (Louisa's) pension applied for in Calif in 1916;
Ross, Henry A. C. 19 (1843 - ) Mustered in on 13 Aug 62; Mustered out on 18 May 65; Filed for Pension as an Invalid in 1890 in Mass and his widow (America A. Ross) in 1897 from OH; However there is a Pauper's Statement dated 13 Jan 1900 from the City of Middleborough, Mass to the City of Taunton regarding a destitute couple (Henry A. C. Ross, born ca 1843, and his wife, Emma E. Hathaway) who have recently moved from Taunton to Middleborough--coincidence? This same couple was married in Taunton, Mass on 19 Nov 1891: Henry A. Ross, son of Charles C. and Sarah B. Ross, aged 49, a soliciting agent from Philadelphia, PA, and Emma E. Hathaway, daughter of Hiram F. and Abigail S. Hathaway, aged 37, a housekeeper from Boston; 1900 Census for Boston, MA has Henry C. Ross b. Nov. 42 in New Jersey and Emma E. Ross b. Jan 54 in Mass living as Lodgers--he works as a Collector?, they have been married 9 years, no children; 1910 and 1915 they are living in Rochester, NY; This whole tangent with Emma and paupers, etc. is probably just a wild goose chase!
Sarles, Benjamin H. 18 (1843 - 1878) Mustered in 5 Sept 61; Wounded at Stones River (Was he at Cripple Creek?) Appointed Cpl on 5 Jan 64; Vet; Mustered out 22 Jul 65; Mother's pension application dated 1886 (Lydia A. Sarles); Widow's pension application dated 1891 (Jessie M. Honsinger)--both filed from OH; Burial information from Woodlawn Cemetery, Huron Co., OH states that Benjamin H. Sarles died 22 Apr 1877 "Age 30 y, 11 m, 28 d,; Co B. 1 Reg O.V.I." I have a couple of problems with this inscription: (1) he was not in the Infantry (OVI), although that is close enough; (2) figuring back 30 y, 11 m, 28 d from 22 Apr 77 puts his birthdate on 26 Mar 1846--this would make him only 15 1/2 when he enlisted (a little young, but not unheard of); There is an article in the Clyde Sentinel dated 27 Apr 77 concerning the death of B. H. Sarles in Clyde (Sandusky Co.), OH on 22 Apr 77, but I haven't been able to locate it yet; I would imagine he died as the result of some sort of accident; 1870 Census for Norwalk, Huron Co., OH shows Ben H, 24, b. OH as the son of Henry and Lydia Searles
Sawtell, Levi L.* 45 (1815 - 1864) Married Julietta Dille in 1841 in Cuyahoga Co, OH; He served as a Postmaster in Cuyahoga Co in 1849 and appears on a Tax List for Cuyahoga Co in 1855; Mustered in on 2 Aug 62, he was slightly wounded at the Battle of Stones River, but not seriously enough to cause him to leave his men; However, he was wounded again and died on 24 Feb 64 in Nashville, TN; He is buried in the Nashville National Cemetery
Schmehl, George 21 (1840 - 1890) Born in Hesse Darmstadt; Mustered in 10 Aug 61 as an Artificer; Vet; Mustered out 22 Jul 65; He married Helen Amalia Deuble in 1869 in Cuyahoga Co, OH; In the 1880 Census, he is listed as a Blacksmith; His pension application as an Invalid was filed in 1888 from OH; His widow (Helen A.) filed her application in 1890; His pension information card shows him assigned to Batteries I and M as well as to Battery B; He died in Cleveland in 1890 and is buried there
Seidel, Frank H. 22 (<1838> - 1914) Born in Germany, he came to the US around 1847; Mustered in on 5 Sept 61; Vet; Mustered out on 22 Jul 65; Removed to Iowa in the 1870s; Pension application for Invalid status dated 1890 in Iowa with a note that he died 1 Apr 1914 (Anthon, Woodbury Co., IA)
Sheldon, Addison E. 20 (1842 - 1897) Lived almost all of his life as a Farmer in Lorain Co., OH; Mustered in on 9 Aug 62; Mustered out on 16 Jun 65; His widow (Ella) filed for her widow's pension application in Feb 1897
Shukers, John Andrew 20 (1841 - 1922) Born in OH; He was a Carpenter's Apprentice in 1860; Mustered in 5 Sept 61; Appointed Cpl on 8 Nov 64; Vet; Mustered out 22 Jul 65; Married Sylvia Reynolds in 1865 in OH; Had moved to KS by 1880 where he was a Farmer and died there in Chautauqua Co.
Singer, William H. 18 (1842 - 1926) Born in OH, he lived most of his life in Ashland Co., OH; Mustered in 5 Sept 61; Military records do not record the date when he was appointed Cpl, so he might have still been Pvt Singer at Cripple Creek; Vet; Mustered out 22 Jul 65; Filed for his pension as an Invalid in 1886 (no further pension records); At the time of the 1890 Census, he was living in Ashland Co., OH and was troubled by Piles and Rheumatism; There are a couple of William H. Singers in the same general area and the same general time frame whose burial records indicate they were Union veterans, but do not tell which regiment, so I am making an educated guess that our William was the one married to Olive who is buried in the Old Dutch Church Cemetery in Ashland Co.
Sloan, James Madison 20 (1842 - 1917) There are conflicting dates for his birthyear (1842 on his tombstone, 1843 in family records, 1844 on the 1900 Census); Born and lived the first part of his life in Ashland Co. OH; Mustered in on 5 Sept 61; Vet; Mustered out on 22 Jul 65; Married Sarah Ann "Annie" Stentz in 1866; By 1880, he and his family were living in Marion Co, Iowa; He listed himself as a Carpenter on the Iowa Census; His widow, Annie, filed her pension claim in Iowa; They are buried in Marion Co., IA
Snyder, John 20 (1841 - ) Mustered in 5 Sept 61; Military records do not specify on what date he was appointed Cpl, so he might have still been a Pvt when he was at Cripple Creek; He was one of the five men voted by his comrades to be placed on the Roll of Honor created by Gen. Rosecrans in Mar 63 Vet; Mustered out on 22 Jul 65; His widow, Lizzie, filed for his pension in 1895 from OH; There are so many John Snyders in OH at this time, that it is hard to say which one he is (if he even died in OH); My guess is that he is the John Snyder 1844 - 1881 buried in the Erie St Cemetery in Cleveland (spouse Elizabeth Hattie Snyder), but I can't say for certain; Maybe YOU know which one he was!
Sprinkle, Adam 18 (1844 - 1923) Born in Ashland Co, OH; Mustered in on 5 Sept 61; Vet; Mustered out on 22 Jul 65; Married Sarah J. Biddinger in Ashland Co, OH in 1866; Adam worked as a Carpenter; He died in Richland, OH
Stanfield, William R. (or H.) 29 (1832 - 1894) Born in NY, he was living in Lorain Co., OH by 1850; He was mustered into Battery B as "William R.", but his other records (tombstone, Census, family records) show him as "William H."; Mustered in on 5 Sept 61; Vet; Mustered out on 22 Jul 65; By 1880, he was living in Buffalo (Erie Co.), NY; His widow (Maggie) filed for his pension in 1894 in NY and they are buried in Buffalo
Story, Francis Drake 18 (1843 - 1912?) Served a three-month enlistment in the 19th OH Inf, Co. F (27 Apr - 30 Aug 61); Less than a week later, he was mustered into Battery B on 5 Sept 61; Vet; Mustered out on 22 Jul 65; At the time he files for his pension as an Invalid, he is living in the Disabled Veterans' Home at Ft. Leavenworth, KS. He entered there in and was described at 5' 10" tall, light complected, and single; it further stated that he earned a living as a Carpenter, however on 16 Jul 1866, he was in some sort of accident in which he lost three fingers and the thumb of his left hand--presumably making it difficult for him to earn a living and/or to live independently; He voluntarily left the Veteran' Home in1891, but returned for a few months in 1891-92; The final entry says he transferred to a different Veterans' Home, but it does not say where; At some point, he was married (after he left the Home?), for his widow, Saviah, makes a widow's claim in 1916 under the name Saviah Liston; Had she remarried?; One record on Ancestry shows his death year as 1912, but there is no further information; There is also a record for a Francis Story (no middle initial) who served in Battery L of the 1st OH Light Artillery--is this a relative?
Stroup (Strope), Erastus H. 22 (1839 - 1906) Mustered in on 5 Sept 61; He was with the group that transferred to Battery K on 6 April 64; He was mustered out from Battery K on 15 Sept 64 in Nashville, TN; He filed as an Invalid in 1890 from OH (Erastus H. Strope); 1900 Census he is living at the Ohio State Soldiers' and Sailors' Home in Erie Co., OH and is buried there; 10 Oct 1906 Sandusky, OH obituary also lists him as Erastus H. Strope
Swift, Edwin A. Also known as A. Edward Swift and Adonirum Edwin Swift 28 (<1834> - 1909) Born in NY, his family moved to OH; I am guessing that he is somehow related to Henry Adonirum Swift, who was the third Governor of Minnesota, but I haven't figured out the exact connection yet; Mustered in on 6 Aug 62; Discharged on 10 Nov 64 at Nashville, TN; Invalid petition filed 5 Apr 65 and his widow (Isabell) filed her petition for his pension in 1909 in OH; He is buried in the National Cemetery in Dayton, OH (listed as Adonirum F. Swift) in Plot O - P, C, 4

B of the 19th OH Inf. on 27 Apr 61 as a 3-month enlistment (ending 29 Aug 61); Mustered in with the 1st OH Light Art. on 1 Oct 62; Vet; Mustered out on 22 Jul 65; His widow, Mary E., filed her pension application in 1913 from Missouri; (His headstone gives his date of death as 1912 and his middle initial as H)
Wellsted, John 20 (1841 - 1878) Mustered in on 5 Sept 61--originally in Battery K; Transferred FROM Battery K on 1 Dec 61; Transferred BACK to Battery K on 6 Apr 64; Died of apoplexy on 9 Dec. 1878 in Cleveland; The cemetery record (Erie St. Cemetery in Cleveland) lists his date of death as 11 Dec., but I believe the cemetery records are wrong, due to the fact that the original death notice was published on 11 Dec. in the Cleveland Leader and gave 9 Dec as the date he died; The cemetery also shows the year of his birth as 1840; He was a partner in the (printing?) firm of Johns and Wellsted; His name is variously spelled as Walstead, Wallsted, Welstad, etc. and his middle initial is given as G in the newspaper, as H in the cemetery record, and as C in the 1860 Census; More confusion comes in his place of birth: England or Ohio, depending upon which Census you read
White, Daniel Ford, Jr. 20 (1841 - 1913) Born in NY; Mustered in on 5 Sept 61; Vet; Mustered out on 22 Jul 65; Buried Huron Co., OH--headstone confirms he was in the 1st OH Battery B; However, he may not be related to Alonzo and Theodore White who were also in Battery B--I say this since, according to the Find-A-Grave bio, he had no brothers, and going back a generation to his father's brothers, none of them had sons named Alonzo or Theodore
Wolfe, Jacob 23 (1836 - 1930) Born in Columbiana, OH on 30 Jun 1836 to William and Catherine Wolf (although the 1900 Census says he was born in June 1833); Lived in Ashland Co, OH in 1850 and in Hardin Co, OH as a Laborer in 1860; Mustered in on 5 Sept 61; Captured on 6 August 62 near McMinnville, TN; paroled and returned to the unit by the 9th of August; Transferred to Battery K on 6 April 64; Married Elizabeth Menges in IN in 1866 and lived as a Farmer in Steuben Co, IN for the rest of his life; Invalid Pension filed for in 1886 (?); Note on Pension record says he died 9 Feb 1930 in Angola, IN (Death certificate says 10 Feb)
