COMPANY  B  OFFICERS  at  CRIPPLE  CREEK

>>>Hadlock, Alva  28   (1833 - )  Mustered in on 4 Jun61 as Capt of Co B;  Would be promoted to Maj on 18 Dec 62;  THIS IS A PUZZLEMENT:  Hadlock left as Capt on 18 Dec 62, but Wagener didn't become Capt until 15 Aug 63--WHO WAS CAPT OF CO B FROM DEC 62 UNTIL AUG 63?  (See Main Page for the 1st KY for the rest of Hadlock's bio)

 

 

>>>>Wagener, John B.   <41>   (<1820> - )  Joined for duty 30 Apr 61 in Cincinnati; Served as 1st Sgt from 30 Apr until 4 Jun 61 when mustered in as 2nd Sgt at Elk River, TN on;  Acted (as 1st Sgt?) until mustered in on 17 Jun 61 as 1st Sgt;   Promoted to 2 Lt on 22 Jan 62;  Promoted to 1 Lt on 13 Dec 62;  Would be promoted to Capt on 15 Aug 63;  Even though he was 1 Lt during Co B's stay at Cripple Creek, he was not there, as he was on Detached Service to the Pioneer Corps from 16 Nov 62 until 15 Aug 63;  THIS MEANS THAT CO B WAS WITHOUT A PHYSICAL 1 LT AND WITHOUT A CAPT FROM DEC 62 UNTIL AUG 63!!!  (How can this be?)  [See the note in David Hammond's bio about being paid extra as Camp Commander of Co B];   I do not know how (or even if) John B. was related to Pvt./Cpl John Wagner (no 1) or to  the elder John Wagner of this Company (born about 1818) who died in McMinnville in 1862

(See their bios in the next box on this page)

 

 

Hammond, David  26  (1835 - )  Was mustered in at Manchester, TN on 4 Jun 61 as a Cpl;  Promoted to Sgt on 21 Oct 61;  Promoted to 2 Lt on 13 Dec 62;  A note appears on several of his bi-monthly Muster Roll cards that he was "Entitiled to $10 per month extra as Camp Commander [of Co B] from 19 Dec 62" [whiich was the day after Hadlock was promoted from Capt of Co B to Major of the 1 KY]--this note continues to apear on his cards until 14 Sep 63, when he is "relieved of command" upon Wagener's official promotion to Capt on 14 Aug 63  and Hammond's promotion to 1 Lt on 14 [or 15] Aug 63;  (Clearly, his being "relieved of command" was not an act of punishment, it was merely a signal to the Paymaster that his extra $10 a month would be stopping--I wonder if Hammond felt relieved by not having to serve as acting head of the company, doing the work of Capt and 1 Lt while but a 2 Lt);  Mustered out 18 Jun 64, although there is a note in the records of the army post in Louisville commanded by a JH Hammond that DH Hammond and Jn A Snediker, both of the 1st KY Infantry, enlisted in the US Army in May 64 [I suspect that Hammond came from a military family and he and Snediker from Co C decided to continue to serve in the Army after their 3-year enlistments were up];
