Seth Woodruff Tuley   21  (1842 - 1921)  Born in New Albany, Floyd Co, IN to Preston and Mary Woodruff Tuley;  In 1861, his sister, Priscilla, married Col. Thomas D. Sedgewick;  Mustered in on 1 Apr 62 as a Sgt;  Promoted 2 Lt on 13 Mar 62;  Promoted to 1 Lt on 25 Apr 62;  After the Battle of Stones River, he was appointed Adjutant on the staff of Brig Gen Charles Cruft (making Tuley one of the ones who would inspect the troops at Cripple Creek and causing Cpl McKee to remark in his diary that Tooley [sic] was "a perfect bore"--I suspect Tuley was the unnamed inspector mentioned by Sgt William Busbey who "took names" of the officers who were out of line during another inspection at Cripple Creek;  Tuley would eventually become Capt of Co B on 25 Jul 63;  After the War, he married Nathalie Peters  and settled down as a business man selling insurance;  By 1877, he was facing domestic [marital?] strife and excessive debt and on 7 Jun 77, he disappeared, leading friends, family, and associates to wonder if he were dead;  In 1880, his wife had resorted to turning their home into a boarding house;  Meanwhile, Tuley had quietly gone out West (to Texas and New Mexico) where he took a Civil Service job for the post office;  This job eventually took him to Washington, DC where he was apprehended in Sep 1884 just as his brother was attempting to get the insurance company to finally pay the family's claim for his life insurance;  Amazingly, he was not convicted of any crime and was allowed to keep his post office job--in 1900, he finally assumed his real name over the alias he had used all those years (Philip Nolan, as in the antihero of Edward Everett Hale's novella, The Man Without a Country); Nathalie and their children joined him in Washington where they remained until Nathalie's death in 1911 and his death in 1921;  He was active in the GAR and apparently suffered no repercussions from his escapade
