Lamme, John F.   32   (1828 - 1908?)  Mustered in on 6 Jun 61 as Cpl in Co C;  Promoted to Sgt (Co C) on 15 Jul 61;  Promoted to 1 Lt (still in Co C) on 22 Jan 62;  Transferred to Co H on 19 Oct 62 as 1 Lt (although one record says he was "in command of the Company" since 1 Sep 62;  Promoted to Capt of Co H (officially) on 21 Dec 62;  On 14 Apr 63, he had arranged to send $500 via express train to his family in Springfield, OH--unfortunately, the train was robbed by Confederate Cavalry and his family faced a sudden financial crisis that was compounded by his wife, Mary Kate, being "very sick" and "not expected to live" --He requested and was granted a Leave of Absence for 15 days on 21 Apr 63  [thankfully, Mary Kate recovered and he was able to arrange their finances for the comfort of her and their two little daughters];  Sent to hospital in Nashville on 16 Aug 63 due to Chronic Diarrhea and granted Sick Leave on 23 Aug 63 for 20 days, due to the same condition;  In Mar (or May?) 64, he was recommended by his superiors Enyart, Hadlock, and Mitchell to serve as Major of one of the new regiments of Colored Troops being organized in Chattanooga--"Capt. Lamme is a good and energetic officer, a strict disciplinarian, and is in ever[y] respect fully qualified to fill the position proposed--He has raised himself from the ranks by his Bravery and good conduct on the fields of Gauley, Shiloh, Corinth, Chaplin Hills and Stone River and we are willing to say he has filled the responsible position of Captain with honor to himself and credit to his Regiment.  We take pleasure in recommending him as a Gentleman, and an Officer of undoubted ability whose services would be a valuable acquisition to the Regiment.  Hoping that this will meet with your approbation and approval.";  He was examined for the position in May 64 and received word (in late Jun 64?) of his appointment as Col of the 178 USCT Regiment (although I am not sure whether he went in first as a Major or a Lt Col and was appointed Col by War's end or if he went in as a Col at the outset)  Mustered out from the 1 KY on 18 Jun 64 and from the 178 USCT on 6 Feb 66;  After the War, he moved to Venango Co, PA with his family (one source I found says he was born in Beaver Co, PA);  He was a Merchant before the War and apparently tried his hand at the Oil Business later in life;  The 1890 Census for Beaver Co, PA lists a John F. Lamme who was a PVT [?] in the 1 KY, who makes reference to having a broken leg during the War, but I don't know when this took place--perhaps in conjunction with his Sick Leave in Aug 63?; Enlisted in 109 USC [should it be the 178 USCT?] Inf Co C; Filed Invalid Pension 1895; [Note: I do not believe the John F. Lamme who died in Tazewell Co, IL in 1903 is OUR John! I believe that our John is the John Lamm1824-1908 who is buried in Butler Co, OH; If so, then he was born in OH and died in Sommerville, Butler co, OH; His wife was Mary K. Macy, whom he married in Butler Co, OH in 1851; He Sold Trees in Clark Co, OH in 1860, was a Farmer in Preble Co, OH in 1870 and 1880, and no ocupation listed in 1900 Butler Co, OH; I will post a photo of this man's headstone]



Fahrenhorst, Christoph Friedrich Wilhelm   21  (1838 - 1883)  Born in Prussia, he came to America around 1848;  Mustered in on 5 Apr 61 as a Pvt, but was promoted to Sgt on 6 Jun 61;  He was apparently wounded quite seriously in the foot during a skirmish near Corinth, MS on 21 May 62, however there is no mention of his being absent (in Hospital or Convalescent Corps during the period from Apr - Aug 62);  Promoted to 1 Lt on 5 Apr 63;  Mustered out on 18 Jun 64  (Who was the 1 Lt of Co H from 21 Dec 62 until 5 Apr 63?);  He applied to AAG Barnes of the Dept of the Missouri for an appointment as an officer on 30 Dec 64--there is no record of his serving after his 3 years in the 1 KY;  He worked as a Porter in CIncinnati in 1860, but spent his life after the War in St. Louis, MO as a Saloon Keeper/Bartender;  He was married in 1871, but I can find no record of his wife's name;  Filed Invalid Pension 1880; He died in St. Louis on 25 Sep 1883 of a Strangulated Inguinal Hernia and is buried in St. Louis



Hoeke, Louis Henry   24  (1837 - 1885)  Born in Baltimore to German immigrants;  Married Catharina Elizabeth "Lizzie" Schweisinger in Cincinnati on 16 Jan 1861; Mustered in on 6 Jun 61 as a Musician and served as the Drum Major/Principal Musician for the Regiment;  Promoted to 2 Lt on 1 Dec 62;  On 5 Feb 63, Sgt William Busbey of Co C mentions in his diary, "...Lou Houke [sic] presented with a splendid, silver fife by Genl [John T.] Smith [of the 31st IN].  Tonight he gives us a tune."  (Busbey would mention Lou Hoeke's musical abilities many decades later in a newspaper column he wrote--here is the link:;  In May 63, while at Cripple Creek, Hoeke requested 48 hours' leave in order to go to Nashville to purchase the proper mouthpieces for their bugles, as well as other musical merchandise to enhance the Regimental Band and Genl Cruft approved the request and passed it up the Chain of Command--it is not known whether his leave was granted, but a subsequent request was made on 20 Jul 63, this one for 15 days to go to Louisville and Cincinnati to purchase "...drums, fifes, etc. for the Regiments of the 1st Brigade."  A cover leter was submitted with his request, asserting,   "...The stock of musical instruments in the Brigade is well nigh exhausted.  We cannot draw any [musical instruments] from the Government, [however, we] have the money to purchase and wish to supply ourselves with good articles.  Lt Hoke [sic] is the only competent man in the Regiment to select what we want.  We therefore ask as an especial favor that he be allowed to go."  and is signed by Lt Col John T. Smith of the 31st IN, Alva Hadlock of the 1 KY, Col Rippey of the 90th OH, and Col Sedgewick of the 2nd KY;  Genl Cruft again gave his approval, adding "The regts of the brigade have several hundred doll[ar]s which they desire to expend in musical instruments for a general field band.  It is desirable that Lt. Hoeke have his leave.";  Unfortunately, the request was returned by Genl Rosecrans on 8 Aug 63, with the note, "...more information is required as to the kind of instruments desired";  Apparently Genl Rosecrans was eventually convinced, since Lt Hoekke is listed as "Absent with Leave" on the Jul/Aug 63 Muster Roll--presumably to purchase band instruments in Louisville and/or Cincinnati;  In Nov 63, he was challenged by a Major Robinson of Cleveland to some sort of musical contest--Hoeke replied that he could not meet the Major in Ohio for the the challenge, but he invited Robinson to come to Chattanooga and engage him there; I don't know if the "play-off" ever took place; Lt Hoeke mustered out on 18 Jun 64 and returned to his wife and children in Cincinnati;  In August 1872, he was charged with the rape of a young woman, Christina Fahner, who was a servant in his house; Hoeke' wife admitted in court that this was the third time such an incident had happened and that she would not live with him again and wanted him prosecuted; the scandal deepened when Hoeke's brother-in-law (Lizzie's brother) offered money ($1700!) to the girl and her guardian to drop the charges; When the guardian refused, Hoeke charged her with being a "medicine-selling woman" since she had sold the Hoeke medicine to cure their child's worms; A decision in the case was to be made on 30 Aug 1872--but I can find no record of what happened to the charge against him, only that the girl, as a minor, could not choose her own guardian [!]; The scandal must not have put a damper on his popularity [was it because he was a policeman?], since all other newpaper reports were complimentary and enthusiastic whenever the Drum Major of the 1st Regiment of the OH National Guard Drum Corps, and his band provided the entertainment at veterans events, picnics for the public, and other occasions--on 19 Jan 82 he was presented with "...a beautiful silver fife, gold mounted and finely chased" by the officers of the 2nd Army Corps, a fife which reportedly cost $1,000 (and $1 in 1882 equals over $23 in current currency!);  He worked at various jobs after the War, including Iron Moulder, Janitor at the Courthouse, and Cincinnati Policeman;  He was buried in the Vine Street Cemetery, but reburied a short time later with great pomp and public acclaim in the Spring Grove Cemetery, Cincinnati, OH; Wife filed for her Pension on 30 Jul 85

Cahill, born about 1831 in Ireland, whose job is listed as Hotel Keeper, so if these are the right Cahills, there might be some sort of family connection--although in 1850, there is only a Joseph Cahill, aged 9 and born in Ireland, living in the household of Patrick and Jane Cahill, but not Frank or FP, so they may NOT have been brothers; Joseph's Widow filed for her Pension 14 Jun 1884

E. Coffee"--was he a medical doctor or a PhD?;  He filed a petition as an Invalid in 1889 from Missouri,  and Sue filed for her Widow's pension in 1891, also from Missouri;  He is buried in Livingston, MO;  His first name is given by other sources as Francis

Colsher, John Nelson   17  (1843 - 1900)  Born in Boone Co, KY on 12 Dec 43 (so he was not yet 18 when he mustered in on 23 Jun 61 as a Pvt);  Wounded in the right hip at Stones River (one Casualty Sheet says "slightly" and one says "severely"--he was in hospital then in Convalescent Camp in Nashville until 10 Apr 63, so it was probably more than "slightly" but not exactly "severe");  Promoted to Cpl on 4 Apr 63 (in absentia?  Or did they wait until he returned to the Company the following week?);  Taken prisoner at Graysville, GA on 10 Sep 63 and sent to Richmond, VA--thankfully, he was paroled fairly quickly 27 Dec 63 and arrived at Camp Chase, OH on 14 Jan 64;  Unfortunately, he was listed as AWOL on 25 Feb 62, but returned to the Army (of his own accord?) on 3 May 64;  He was sent to the Convalescent Camp in Nashville (his second time there) and mustered out on 18 Jun 64 by telegram;  In 1870, he was Working in a Cooper Shop in Lincoln Co, TN;  Married Maggie Hughes in Lynchburg, Moore Co, TN in 1875;  Filed for an Invalid's Pension 1877; 1880 saw him working in Lynchburg as a Store Keeper, but at some point he moved with his wife and children to Colorado;  He died in Victor, Teller Co, CO;  His name appears variously as Colcher, Colshear, Calshear, etc and his middle initial is incorrectly given as M in the AG's Roll; Maggie filed her Widow's Pension in May 1900 from TN

Fry, Josiah Mansfield   21  (1838 - 1909)  Born in Wooster, Wayne Co, OH, but his family had moved to a farm in Peru, IN by 1860;  Mustered in on 6 Jun 61 as a Pvt;  Promoted to Cpl on 23 Dec 62;  Mustered out on 18 Jun 64;  Lived in CIncinnati for the rest of his life after the War;  He filled his petition for an Invalid's pension in 1887;  He reported to the official conducting the 1890 Veterans' Census that he suffered from a Wartime wound in his left leg;  In 1900, he listed his occupation as Grocer;  His widow, America (Coghill) Fry, filed for her Widow's pension in 1909;  He was buried in Cincinnati's Spring Grove Cemetery  

Head, William Joseph  23  (1838 - <1873?>)  Mustered in on 6 Jun 61 as Sgt;  Was absent from Mar/Apr 62 until Nov 62--"sick" at hospital in Nashville--no indication of his illness;  Promoted to Sgt Maj on 1 Mar 63;  He was wounded at Chickamauga on 19/20 Sep 63, but he apparently did not spend any time in hospital;  Mustered out on 18 Jun 64; NOTE: This is NOT the same William Joseph Head who served with the 28 KY Co A, who was born 2 Aug 1839 in Nelson Co, KY, but was married to Annie Bell--he died 5 Jan 1913 in Jeffersonville, IN; Question: Who was William J. Head born circa 1838 in Ireland, who served as a Cpl with the 5 US Vet Vols, Co, H from 2 Apr 64 to 3 Apr 65, because HE died of Phthisis Pulmonalis on 10 Nov 1873 and is bur in Cincinnati's St, Joseph New Cem; I suspect that THIS is our William, but I cannot say for certain

Hyde, Jesse   29  (1832 - 1908)  Born in OH, the son of Samuel Hyde; Went to Linn Co, Oregon in the early 1850s, as he was a member of the 2nd Oregon Militia, Co C in 1855; Mustered in on 6 Jun 61 as Sgt;  Spent some time sick in hospital in Charleston, VA during mid-61--the Clerk did not always indicate whether a man was absent or present, so he may have only been gone a few days;  Was sent on Detached Service as a Recruiting Officer on 23 Dec 63 until the end of April 64;  Mustered out 18 Jun 64;  He married Ethelinda McNorton in Allegheny Co, PA circa 1864; In 1870, he is a Carpenter-Joiner, living with his wife (Ethelinda) and two sons in Greenwood Co, KS;   Filed for an Invalid's Pension in 1877; In 1880, he is a House Joiner in Adams Co, OH; Arrived in Washington State by 1890, according to Find-A-Grave, although the 1900 Census shows the family in Douglass Co, OR; He died of Senile Dementia and Chronic Diarrhea on 30 Nov 1908 in Black Rock, Moxee Co, Wash--occupation given as House Joiner (although Ethelind is erroneously entered as his mother's name); He was buried in Black Rock Cemetery; Ethelinda filed her Widows' Pension 28 Jan 1908 from Washington

Perkins nee Roberts) and he and his second wife spent the rest of their days in the Indiana State Soldiers' Home in Wabash, Tippecanoe Co, IN; He is buried there in Grave 8 in Row O of the Central Section

Bannister, John T.  20  (1841 - 1913)  Born in KY, his father was a Merchant when he was a boy;  Mustered in on 6 Jun 61;  He aparently suffered no wounds or illnesses while in the Army and he was never captured;  Mustered out on 18 Jun 64;  Except for his time in the War, he spent all of his life as a Farmer in Marion Co, KY;  He was married twice and was the father of six chilldren who lived to adulthood;  He was buried in the Ryder Cemetery in (you guessed it!) Marion Co, KY;  Name also spelled Banister

Bayless, John   38  (1823 - 1906)  Born in Staffordshire, England;  Mustered in on 6 Jun 61;  Taken prisoner at Stones River and sent to Richmond, VA 16 Jan 63;  Paroled 3 Feb 63 and sent to Camp Chase, OH;  Was granted a short furlough on 10 Apr 63, but apparently took too long and was arrested as a "Straggler/Deserter" on 22 Apr 63;  Sent from Camp Chase to Murfreesboro on 2 Jun 63--his arrival date in TN is not listed, but he apparently made it to Camp Cripple Creek before the Regiment left on 24 Jun 63;  He was wounded on 19/20 Sep 63 at Chickamauga (gun shot wound to his right shoulder) and was sent to hospital in Nashville but was able to rejoin his Company by the Mar/Apr 64 Muster Roll;  Mustered out on 18 Jun 64;  He lived in Cincinnati after the War with his wife and family and was employed as an Iron Moulder;  In 1883, he was a widower and unable to work, so he entered the Disabled Veterans' Home in Dayton--he was 5' 6" with blue eyes, a fair complexion, and able to read and write;  He died of a Cerbral Hemorrhage in 1906 and was buried in the Dayton National Cemetery in Section N, Row 5, Grave 11;  Name also spelled Bayliss

Connolly, Michael (no middle initial)   28  (1833 - )  Mustered in on 6 Jun 61; Listed as being Absent, Sick in hospital in Murfreesboro during the Mar/Apr 62 Muster Roll, which makes me think he might have become ill or might even have been injured at Shiloh in April;  By May/Jun 62, he is listed as being in hospital at Louisville, where he would remain until 10 Apr 63 when he joins his unit at Cripple Creek;  There is a Casualty Sheet for this Michael saying he was wounded slightly at Corinth on 21 May 62--which does not exlain his hospitalization in Mar/Apr, however, there is also a Casualty Sheet for Michael G. Connolly saying he was wounded slightly at Corinth on 21 May 62;  Were they both wounded at Corinth?  If this Michael's wound was only a slight one, why was he in hospital from Mar/Apr 62 until 10 Apr 63?  (Michael G. Connolly was apparently never sent to hospital for any reason);  Are there any of the Connollys in the 1 KY who were related?  All of them have their names spelled variously as Connolly, Connelly, Connolley, Connely, etc.;  Mustered out on 18 Jun 64; Mother filed for her Pension on 21 Jun 1872; His Pension file also reflects he served in Co F of the 1 KY at one time

Connolly, Michael G.  25   (1836 - )  Originally assigned to Co F, but transferred to Co H on 8 Jul 61--There was a Michael M. Connolly in Co F, so if this Michael were transferred to another Company to avoid confusion, why send him to Co H, since they already had a Michael Connolly (no middle Initial)?  Or did these two Michaels want to be in the same unit because of kinship?  Were either of them related to the Dudley Connolly in Co. H who was discharged on 6 Jan 63 from Louisville with a broken kneecap incurred at the skirmish near Corinth?;  Were any of them related to the Michael M. Connolly in Co. F who was killed at Stones River?  In any case, there is a Casualty Sheet for Michael G. Connelly for being wounded slightly in the arm in the skirmish near Corinth, Mississippi on 21 May 62, however, there are no hospital records for Michael G. Connelly--has he been confused with the Michael (no middle initial) listed above or was this Michael simply not wounded seriously enough to warrant a trip to a hospital?;  Mustered out on 18 Jun 64;  Is he any relation to the other Michael Connolly in the bio above?

Xavier Frick, aged 9, born in Germany; I find no Sebastian Frick(e) in the Pension File, but a Philip Frick filed an Invalid's Pension in 1899 and his card also reflects he served in the War With Spain--is Phillip Frick the same man as Sebastian Frick(e)?

Mack, James   32  (1829 - )  Mustered in on 6 Jun 61;  Sent to hospital in Stevenson, AL on 8 Sep 63 (no details on the reason, but it was apparently serious enough to warrant his being sent to Nashville on 1 Oct 63);  Back with his unit by the Jan/Feb 64 Muster Roll;  Mustered out on 18 Jun 64;  Related to John Mack?

Mack, John   27   (1827 - )  Mustered in on 6 Jun 61;  Mustered out on 15 Jun 64 by telegram--I don't know why;  Related to James Mack?; Invalid Pension filed 1890

Metcalfe born 1839 in KY, lived in Kenton Co, KY, and died there about 1899
