Cox, Jr., Thomas J.   33   (1828 - )  Mustered in on 5 Jun 61 as Capt of Co I;  By 23 Jul 61, Capt Cox was requesting of Brig Gen Jacob Dolson Cox (a cousin?) to be transferred to a different regiment, stating, "I have no confidence in the ability of Col Guthrie to command a Regt.  He has no system of government, the men do as they please and it is all most [sic] impossible to controll [sic] them or hold them in subjection.  After a march the men are permitted to go where they please before the guard is posted.  Consequently, they have pillaged and destroyed private property until we are and should be disgraced.  I have denounced most emphatically such a course and have been reprimanded for it.  Again, when prisoners are brought in they are left to the tender mercies of the crowd to be abused, insulted, and questioned.  I feel confident that under Col Guthrie I shall ever be dissatisfied--and have no desire to conceal my sentiments."  Capt Cox's request was not answered and it may have been a blessing for all concerned (including Capt Cox) when he was captured near Camp Gauley (Peytona), VA on 12 Sept 61, and taken to Libby Prison in Richmond and later to Tuscaloosa, AL;  His exploits while in prison were described in a book entitled Richmond Prisons, 1861 - 1862 (;  Indeed, they were still memorable enough that in 1912, a fellow inmate of Libby writes to the GAR column in the Philadelphia Inquirer asking if anyone knows the address of Capt Thomas J. Cox;  Exchanged after almost 11 months and sent to Camp Wallace, OH where he was put in Temporary Command of Paroled Forces;  Upon his return to the 1st KY, he was appointed Capt of Co F on 21 Oct 62;  Apparently, he had been granted a leave of absence for the purpose of getting married which was to take place in Aug 62, but due to his imprisonment, he was not able to take his leave;  In Apr 63, he applied for leave to replace the leave he had missed out on, but his request was denied, with the notation " this time officers can only be spared in cases of absolute necessity, by command of Maj Gen Rosecrans";  On 23 Jul 63, he again applied for leave in order to be married and to take care of "business of pecuniary importance", but his request was again denied;  He was sent to Nashville Hospital (sick) from 16 Aug - 7 Sep 63;  On 29 Nov 63, he wrote directly to Gen George Thomas (ignoring the chain of command) concerning his need for a leave of absence, stating, "I cannot send through regular channels an application worded as this is, without giving room for comment and gossip..." and explaining that his bride-to-be's "...old father, now in his dotage, has been endeavoring to get possession of the property left his children by their deceased mother.  Failing in his efforts, he has resorted to the most cruel and unnatural means of revenge, surreptitiously obtaining what he could and driving his children from home..."  He asks the Genl to speak to Capt W. E. Merrill and Capt Hunter Brooke of his staff who would vouch for his character.  It must have worked, since Cox is at last granted his Leave of Absence for 20 days beginning 13 Dec 63;  Lt. Col Alva Hadlock and Col David Enyart of the 1 KY were livid, writing on the Order from Gen Thomas, "Desire to know through what process Capt Thos Cox Jr...obtained leave of absence..." since it "...did not pass through this office, nor was it approved by the Brigade Commander...";  Apparently, permission ultimately came from "G[ordon] Granger, Maj Gen Comdg," and "J[oseph] S[cott] Fullerton, Lieut Col CAAU" who were "Acting in the General's absence";   There is a marriage return for a Thomas Cox who married a Miss F. M. Nichols in Cincinnati on 17 Dec 63, which I believe to be our Capt Cox, but I can find no other information on him;  He is listed on Sick Leave from 4 - 24 Jan 64;  He mustered out 18 Jun 64




Sockwell, Joseph B.  26   (1832 - 1866)  Born in New Jersey, he lived in Switzerland Co, IN for many years prior to the War;  In 1860, he worked as Stewart [sic] on a Steamship  (I wonder if he considered joining the Navy, rather than the Army--perhaps he would one day wish that he had);  Mustered in on 22 Jun 61 as Sgt;  Appointed Sgt Maj for the Regiment on 1 Feb 62;  Promoted from Sgt Maj to 2 Lt of Co F on 7 Apr 62;  Promoted to 1 Lt on 29 Jan 63;  Was Detached to Gen Cruft's Staff as an Acting ACS  (Assistant Commissary of Subsistence) Officer beginning 21 Apr 63;  Requested (and was granted?) a 20-day Leave to visit his aged parents in Jan 64;  Would be dishonorably dismissed from the Service on 18 Apr 64 by Special Field Order #109, due to "gross neglect of his official duties" with regard to the ACS position [Were Commissary items stolen or misappropriated during his tenure in the Office?];  Surname also appears as Lockwell, Soewell;  After his dismissal, he apparently embarked on a cruise [or a seafaring career, perhaps?] which led to his death at sea near Sulawesi, Tengah, Indonesia in 1866



Lawrence, James G.  32  (1829 - 1888)  Mustered in on 5 Jun 61 as Sgt in Co I;  Taken prisoner with several others from the 1 KY near Camp Gauley, VA on 12 Sep 61;  He managed to escape after only a few days and returned to the 1 KY on 29 Sep 61;  He was appointed Acting Sgt for Co I from 15 Jan 62;  Was promoted to 1 Sgt of Co I on 7 Apr 62 after Shiloh;  Promoted from 1 Sgt of Co I to 2 Lt of Co F on 30 (or 29? or 31?) Jan 63;  Given the politics that existed in Co F (the powerplay between Capt Cox and his superiors and the decision of 1 Lt Sockwell to join the staff of the Brigade's Commissary), 2 Lt Lawrence was appointed to be Company Commander beginning on 21 Apr 63 and again on 13 Dec 63--it is unclear exactly when he relinquished Command in either instance);  He is listed as Present Sick in Mar / Apr 64;  He mustered out on 18 Jun 64;  He then enlisted as a Captain in Co I of the 191st OH from 8 Mar 65 until 27 Aug 65;  He never filed for a pension as an Invalid, but his widow, Annie, filed for her pension in 1888 from OH

>>>It would appear that Co F was without a 1 Lt from 1 Dec 62 (the date Albert H. Smith was dishonorably dismissed from that position) until 29 Jan 63, when Joseph B. Sockwell was promoted to fill the position<<<





Baker, Elisha Milton  24   (1837 - 1923)   Born in Columbiana, OH;  Mustered in on 30 Jun 61 as a Pvt at Camp Clay, OH according to the AG's Roll (although the Bi-Monthly Muster Roll cards say he was mustered in 13 Jul 61 at Leon (Kanawha), VA);  Appointed Cpl on 8 Jun 62;  Included with his Fold3 records are two Casualty Sheets for an Edward Baker of 1 KY Co I (?) who was severely wounded in the handat Stones River--there is no Edward Baker in any company of the 1st KY and Elisha Baker was not hurt at Stones River;  Mustered out by telegram on 18 Jun 64; Moved West after the War:  from about 1865 - 1885, he lived in Nebraska as a Farmer and a Laborer; By 1900, he lived in Custer Co, OK, which is where he died in 1923

Mullen, George A.   24  (1837 - 1873)  Mustered in on 8 Jun 61;  Was in hospital for part of the period for Mar / Apr 62;  Note on Nov / Dec 62 Muster Roll says he was "Absent without leave, said to be in Nashville"; Note on the Muster Roll for 31 Oct 62 - 28 Feb 63, "At Convalescent Camp Nashville--a worthless soldier"; This same note appears on the next Muster Roll, dated 10 Apr 63;  Was in Convalescent Camp from 26 Dec 62 until 3 May 63 (so he WAS at Cripple Creek for a few weeks);  Reduced from Cpl at his own request and made a Hospital teward by order of Lt Col Hadlock on 1 Oct 63;  Next Muster Roll said it was by order of Col Enyart on 11 Oct 63;   Mustered out on 18 Jun 64;  I am not certain that our George is the man living in Ward 17 of Cincinnati in 1860--if so, he was born in Ohio and worked as an Engineer;  Buried in the St. John's Irish Cem in Cincinnati

Noe, Alexander "Aleck"   24   (1837 - 1874)  Born in KY, but lived most of his life across the Ohio River in Clark Co, IN;  Mustered in on 8 Jun 61 as a Pvt;  Appointed Cpl on 8 Jul 62;  Captured at Stones River, but quickly exchanged and returned to his Command at Cripple Creek on 8 Jun 63  (Thus, he would not have spent his 26th birthday--2 or 21 May--at Cripple Creek);  Became ill and sent to hospital in Bridgeport, AL from 25 Jan 64 - 21 Apr 64;  Mustered out on 18 Jun 64;  Differing dates on Ancestry (Born 2 or 21 May 37, died 17 Apr 75 or 19 Apr 74);  He was the younger brother of the man in the next bio

Noe, Nathaniel C.  28   (1832 - 1907)  Born in KY, he and his younger brother, Aleck (see the bio above) were children of John M. and Sarah Ann (Camper/Kemper) Noe;  Mustered in on 8 Jun 61 as a Sgt;  Promoted to 1 Sgt on 1 Mar 62; He was ill in Louisville in Sep 62, but not for very long;  Like his brother, he was captured at Stones River, but was exchanged and back with the 1st KY at Camp Cripple Creek on 8 Jun 63; He was present in camp for Mar / Apr 64, but Sick;  Mustered out on 18 Jun 64;  He spent most of his life as a Farmer in Clark Co, IN

Riedel, Adolph  21  (1839 - 1928)  Born in Austria;  Mustered in on 8 Jun 61 as a Pvt;  Appointed Cpl on 8 Jul 62 (although they listed him as Edward Riddle on his Muster Roll cards until Sept / Oct 62!);  He was sick in Nashville from Nov / Dec 62 until Apr 63--first in a hospital and then in a convalescent camp;  Mustered out on 18 Jun 64;  Married a southern lady and lived in Alabama before dying in Osceola Co, FL;  Name is spelled many different ways in the records

Smith, Adam  32   (<1829> - )  Mustered in on 8 Jun 61 as a Cpl;  On 16 Nov 61, Smith was involved in an incident in which several men apparently snuck out of camp during the night, went across the river to Charleston, VA, got drunk, and one of them (Martin Delaney--see last box on this page) was shot and killed (accidentally?  on purpose?)  Smith was subject to a Court Martial, but apparently was not found guilty of murder--he was, however, forced to forfeit one month's pay in Jan 62;  A couple of months later, he was promoted to Sgt on 22 Apr 62 and he never again got into trouble (at least none that was reported in the official records);  Mustered out on 18 Jun 64;  There were so many men named Adam Smith of this approximate age in this general locality, that I have no way to tell which one is ours

1 KY F Fulton.jpg

Bowman, William R.  20  (1841 - 1884)  Born in IN;  Mustered in on 8 Jun 61;  On the April / Aug Muster Roll card is a notation that he was AWOL and that he "Resides near Jeffersonville, IN"--there was no further explanation and he was present for all of his other Muster Roll cards (I suspect some sort of clerical error that was never addressed); Mustered out on 18 Jun 64;  He married Melissa A Sylvester in 1868;  In 1880, he lives with his family in Jeffersonville, Clark Co, IN and works as a Laborer;  Filed for his pension as an Invalid in Jul 84 and his wife, Melissa A., filed for her pension in Nov 84, followed by a petition for a Minor's pension (Nancy A.) in Aug 85;  William is buried in Walnut Ridge Cemetery, Jeffersonville, IN

Camper--yet!

Collins, Cornelius -- I

   suspect he suffered from

   PTSD in addition to the

   listed on his 3 Apr 63

   discharge (the notation

   about his being sent to

   the insane assylum in

   DC in Apr 65 for

   "Apoplexy" has been

   marked through, but not

   the comment on several

   Muster Roll cards that

   he was "perfectly

   Army couldn't find him!)

Keith, Sylvester M. (Cpl) --

   out to be "spurrious"--

   signed by 1 Lt A H Smith f

   from Co I who had been

   dismissed from the

   service in Dec 62--did

   Antonio know his papers

   were fraudulent?  Did Lt

   Smith really sign the

   who forged his name?  

   Oh well, Toney Phillips

   was not at Cripple Creek

   Repoorted AWOL in Sep /

   awaiting medical

   discharge), then he goes

   10 Nov 62 and finally
