                         COMPANY  I  OFFICERS  at  CRIPPLE  CREEK

1 KY I Kummer.jpg

Hogan, Andrew J.  25   (1836 - 1886? )  Elected 2 Lt as the Company was being organized on 22 Apr 61 and by the time the officers were being mustered in on 5 Jun 61, he had been elected 1 Lt;  Detailed to serve on fortifications at Camp Gauley in Aug 61;  Served as Acting Capt from 12 Sep 61  Promoted to Capt on 22 Jan 62;  Injured severely at Shiloh on 7 Apr 62,  by a gun shot wound in the left hand in which "...the ball entered the metacarpal bones and came out behind the joint of the little finger--the bones of the hand were shattered and the lower end of the radius splintered" causing him to be confined to hospital for four months;  On 25 Aug 62, he was sent to Cincinnati to arrest John Schockmann, a man wanted as a Deserter and a Bounty Jumper from Co I, but Schockmann assaulted Capt Hogan and the charge was added to the rest [Schockman would be executed on 23 Jun 63--the last full day at Cripple Creek]; Hogan was present with his Unit in Sep/Oct 62--the wound had healed, but with "...a good deal of swelling and great tenderness when the hand is hanging down";  He received at least one Leave of Absence during this time (one of them was the journey to arrest Schockmann in Aug 62) and eventually Hogan returned to his Command; Sgt William Busbey of Co H wrote in his diary on 14 Feb 63, "...Lou Snediker and Guthrie give Hogan a burlesque serenade last night...", but I don't know if it was in honor of Frday the 13th, Valentine's Day, or for no reason in particular;  By 19 Aug (or the 9th or the 16th, depending on which notation you rely on), Hogan is in hospital in Nashville--an undated letter from Surgeon John Dickson asserts that Hogan's wound " now superating and shows evidence of necrosis of the bone";  By Sept/Oct 63, he was Commander of the Convalescent Camp, which was followed by a Order by J. C. Peterson on 26 Jan 64 that assigned Hogan as Commander of the 47th Invalid Corps (which would be renamed the 179th Co of the 1st Battalion of the Veterans' Reserve Corps);  Unfortunately, when Hogan was examined for a post as a Commissioned Officer of the VRC on 28 May 64, he was turned down;  So, on 1 Jun 64, Hogan was discharged from the Service upon a Surgeon's certificate of Disability;  He filed for an Invalid's pension in 1867;  When his widow, Josephine, filed for her pension on 24 Apr1886, the notation on his file shows him as a Maj in the 114th USC Inf, as well as the Capt of Co I of the 1 KY


McChesney, William R.  29   (1832 - )  Mustered in from civilian life on 9 Sep 62 as 1 Lt;  Lt McChesney was the first to admit that his appointment was done solely as a favor to Brig Genl Woodruff (a family friend?), and not based on any military experience or skills on McChesney's part;  McChesney was immediately placed on Detached Duty on Genl Woodruff's staff, which meant he was not present in the camp during his tenure as 1 Lt;  When Gen Woodruff resigned and McChesney was obliged to join his Regiment on a daily basis, it became obvious that he did not have the respect of the men, nor did McChesney care for the rigors of camp life--made all the more untenable by a medical condition variously referred to as Urethritis, Gleet, and an Enlarged Prostate;  Consequently, Lt McChesney resigned 17 Feb 63 and his resignation was accepted forthwith


[McKee, William James   19   (1843 - )  Mustered in on 5 Jun 61 as a Pvt;  Promoted to Sgt Maj of Regiment on 16 Sep 62;  Promoted to 1 Lt of Co I on 18 Feb 63;  Was put in command of the Company 15 Aug 63;  On 8 Dec 63, he applied for a Leave of Absence to see his ailing father and, as Col Enyart gave the request his approval, he wrote this comment, "McKee has been a most faithful and active officer.  None better in the Regiment";  He was mustered out with the Regiment on 18 Jun 64--See his Bio on the 1 KY Field & Staff age] 


Note:  James Farran was the 2 Lt of Co I, but had been severely wounded at Stones River, requiring his hospitalization for many months and his eventual transfer to the VRC--a note to this effect appears on the "In Hospital" Section of the Page for Co D of the 1 KY, so I will not repeat the information here  (This way, I won't accidentally count him twice in my statistics) 






Breith, Albert Carl  20   (1842 - 1903)  Born in Bavaria, his family came to America in 1848;  Peter Breith (his father? or maybe his uncle?) was a Grocer in Newport, KY and Albert worked as a Clerk (in his family's grocery?);  Mustered in on 5 Jun 61 as a Pvt;  Appointed Cpl on 19 Apr 62 and promoted to Sgt on 10 Dec 62;  Promoted to 1 Sgt on 30 Jan 63;  Mustered out on 18 Jun 64 and apparently enlisted with Co E of the 53rd KY on 29 Sep 64 as a 2Lt;  He rose to the rank of 1 Lt on 1 Apr 65 and to the rank of Capt on 12 Jul 65;  He mustered out on 15 Sep 65;  Name appears in Army records as Bright as well as Breith;  Apparently his full name at his Christening was Carl Albert Edouard Breith, but he went by Albert C.;  He continued to live in Newport, KY after the War where he married and raised a family and worked as a Clerk, including a job as a Clerk for the Railroad;  He is buried in Newport   


Furman, Thomas B.  36   (1825 - )  Mustered in on 4 Nov 62 as a Pvt;  Appointed Cpl on 10 Dec 62; Wounded slightly in the left breast at Stones River and sent to hospital in Nashville;  Back with Co I in time for the Mar/Apr 63 Muster Roll Card;  In Sep/Oct 63, he had $1.50 deducted by the Provost Marshall for some sort of infraction;   Did not muster out with the rest of the Company, since his three years were not over;  He filed for an Invalid's pension in 1890 from TN, however the Thomas B. Furman living in Grundy Co, TN at the time of the 1890 Veterans' Census was a Private in a NY regiment, so I don't know where he was living


Gill, George F.   23  (1838 - 1903)  Born in Albany, NY;  Mustered in on 5 Jun 61 as a Pvt;  Had to forfeit a month's pay in Jan/Feb 62 after an undisclosed discilinary infraction;  Appointed Cpl on 10 Dec 62;  Wounded slightly in the left hand (an earlier report said the left breast, although he told the admitting officer at the Veterans' Home in Dayton, OH that he suffered a gunshot wound to his left breast) at Stones River--he was also captured (and taken to Richmond?) but was exchanged fairly quickly and was back with his Command at Cripple Creek by 8 Jun 63;  Promoted to Sgt on 10 Jan 63;  Mustered out 18 Jun 64;  He then enlisted in Co D of the 181st OH on 14 Sep 64 and was mustered out on 14 Jul 65;  Lived in Cincinnati after the War;  He was a widower with three grown children when he entered the Veterans' Home in Dayton, OH in 81;  His occupation was Cane Maker (?);  He checked himself out of the Home in 85, but he returned in 92;  He died there of Uremia in 1903 and is buried in the National Cemetery on the grounds in Grave M-24-53  


Hardesty, William H.   20  (1840 - 1886)  Born in KY, his family moved to Kansas City, MO when he was a boy;  In his youth, he did a lot of traveling and held a number of diverse jobs--mining in Denver CO, clerking in his father's store in St. Louis, working in a pharmacy, traveling through the South, and eventually ending up in Cincinnati in 1861, where he was mustered into the 1 KY on 5 Jun 61 as a Pvt;  Appointed Cpl on 14 Sep 61 and  promoted to Sgt on 10 Dec 62;   He was wounded slightly twice (once in the skirmish near Corinth, Mississippi on 21 May 62;  Mustered out 18 Jun 64;  He married Mollie V. Rush in 1869 and they had three sons;  He continued his diverse occupations after the War:  Farmer, Dry Goods Store, Editor and Proprietor of The Indiana Pocket, and Operator of a Railroad Sleeping Car (the "Rip Van Winkle Line") between Louisville and New Orleans;  He filed for his pension as an Invalid in 1881 from MD, but lived mostly in IN and KY in the post-War years;  He died in Mannsville, Taylor Co, KY

Kummer, Michael   21  (1842 - 1907)  Born in Bavaria; Came to America in 1843; Mustered in on 5 Jun 61 as a Pvt;  Appointed Cpl on 11 May 62;  Promoted to Sgt on 1 Mar 63;  Mustered out on 18 Jun 64;  Lived in Cincinnati before and after the War;  Married Magdalena Auschnitz in 1865;  He worked as a Moulder, a Saloon Keeper, and as a Janitor;  He told the interviewer for the 1890 Veterans' Census that he suffered a gun shot wound in the left leg--no record of where it happened;  Name also listed in Army records as Kimmer;  Buried in Walnut Hills Cem


[Lawrence, James G.  32   (1829 - 1888)  Mustered in 5 Jun 61 as Sgt in Co I;  Taken prisoner near Camp Gauley, (W)VA on 12 Sep 61, but managed to escape and returned to Co I on 29 Sep 61;  Served as Acting 1 Sgt beginning on 15 Jan 62;  Transferred to Co F in order to become 2 Lt on 30 Jan 63--See the page for Co F for more information on him]



Murch, Greenleaf   31  (1830 - )  Born in Maine;  In 1851, he was a Machinist in Bangor, ME; Mustered in on 5 Jun 61 as a Cpl;  Promoted to Sgt on 11 May 62;  On 6 Apr 63, he was granted a furlough that lasted for several months to assist his former employer, Miles Greenwood of Cincinnati, who had received a Government contract to build the gunboat, Tippecanoe, as well as the engine of Ericson's Battery--Murch had worked for six years as a Machinist in Greenwood's foundery and he needed a man with Murch's skill to complete the jobs, so Secy of War Stanton gave his permission for Murch to be detached to help Greenwood, although it was stipulated that Murch would not receive his military pay while on this assignment;  Eventually, Murch returned to his Command and was mustered out on 18 Jun 64;  His skills took him all over the country (New York, Ohio, Colorado), before and after the War, usually working as a Machinist;  He apparently never married;  You would think, with a name like Greenleaf Murch, it would be easy to find information on him, but I have yet to find his death date and burial place


Parry, John  20   (1841 -  )  Mustered in on 5 Jun 61;  Promoted from Pvt to Cpl 10 Apr 63; $1.00 deducted Senence Provost Marshall; Reduced to ranks 5 Dec 63;  Mustered out on 18 Jun 64; Name also given as Perry

Tittle who resigned on 18 Oct 62;  Enlisted as a Pvt, but was appointed Cpl on 10 May 61 (before the Company was officially mustered);  Taken prisoner near Camp Gauley, (W)VA on 12 Sep 61 and taken to Libby Prison in Richmond and later to Tuscaloosa, AL;  Paroled 2 Jun 62 from Washington, NC, reported at Camp Chase, OH 18 Jul 62 and sent to Camp Wallace on 31 Oct 62;  Given a 7-day Furlough in Mar 63 and arrived at Camp Cripple Creek in mid-Mar;  Mustered out on 18 Jun 64;  Enlisted in Co C of the US Veteran Volunteers on 4 Apr 65 and served until 10 Apr 66;  Lived in Cincinnati for most of his life, working as a Bricklayer and raising a family;  He died on New Year's Day 1897 of Pneumonia and was buried in Spring Grove Cemetery in Cincinnati   


Van, Tafael "Taffey"  18   (1842 - 1914)  Born 14 Jan in New York to French Canadian parents;  In 1860, his family lived in Cincinnati where his father, John Van, was a Shoemaker and Taffey worked as a Painter;  His father started a family business making stoves and ranges:  "The John Van Range Co (Formerly John Van and Sons) Manufacturer of Van's Patented Wrought-Iron Portable Hotel and Family Ranges and all kinds of Hotel Implements for Culinary purposes"; Enrolled as a Pvt on 5 Jun 61 but mustered in as a Cpl on 5 Jun 61;  Taken prisoner at Graysville, GA on 10 Sep 63;  Returned to his Command on 29 May 64;  Mustered out 18 Jun 64;  He married Mary Ann McKiernan in 1868 and joined the family business making ranges;  By 1870, he had moved to San Francisco, CA where he sold and mounted Van's Portable Ranges;  He moved back to Cincinnati around 1884 and lived there for the rest of his life; According to family sources on, his birth might be 1841 (1842 - 1914 are the dates on the tombstone)  


               OTHER  PERSONNEL   from  Co.  I  at   CRIPPLE   CREEK


Hoffmaster, John  25   (1838 - )  Mustered in on 5 Jun 61 as Wagoner;  Detailed duty as Division Wagonmaster under QM Fee beginning Aug (15th? 25?) 62--however, his name appears as "Present" as often as "Absent" on the Muster Roll Cards from Aug 62 - Dec 63, so I would say he was camped at Cripple Creek with his Unit, but did a lot of traveling within the Division;  Beginning in Dec 63, he was Detailled as Wagonmaster of the Ammunition Train, as per Genl Stanley;  Mustered out on 18 Jun 64;  There is a John Hoffmeister, born in OH about 1837, living as a Clerk with the Blinn Family in Cincinnati (and perhaps married to a woman named Sarah) in 1860, but this is such a common name that it is hard to know if this is our John

Logan, Thomas   18  (1843-  )  Mustered in on 5 Jun 61;  Discharged 3 Oct 61 based on a Surgeon's certificate that he had a "rupture" (hernia?), but he apparently did not wait for all the paperwork to be made out, so his discharge was not valid;  Then during his absence, he enlisted in not one, but TWO other regiments (the 124th OH and the 23rd KY)--I don't know that he was trying to collect a bounty from both regiments as a bonus for enlisting, (a crime called bounty jumping), but he was arrested in Jun 63 and brought back to the 1 KY;  He would have been at Cripple Creek when John Schockmann was executed for the crimes of Desertion and Bounty Jumping (and he had only tried to join TWO regiments at the same time, not THREE the way Logan did);  Apparently, Schockman's execution did not serve to keep men (kids!) like Logan from deserting, since on 6 Sept 63, Thomas Logan once again deserted (from a place called Squirrel Town, TN) and, apparently, was not caught afterward

Morton, Joseph B., Jr.  27  (1834? - 1864?)  Mustered in on 5 Jun 61;  He forfeited one month's pay in the Jan / Feb 62 Muster Roll  (I don't know why);  Left in hospital in Corinth, Miss on 12 Jun;  Mustered out on 18 Jun 64;  This is where the definitive info on Joseph B Morton, Jr. ends;  Ancestry and Find-A-Grave link him with a Joseph Morton who was born in Jan 1834 and died 30 Sep 64 and was buried in the Westwood Baptist Church Cem in Cincinnati;  Here is the problem:  the Joseph B Morton who died 30 Sep 64 was listed in the Andersonville Prison Death Register as J B Morton of the Ring Cav, Co A who died of Febrile Typhus; There are about 4 more Morton men who could be our Joseph, especially since the US Civil War Soldier Records and Profiles contains the notation that the Joseph B Morton of the 1 KY survived the War, so, once again, the Joseph who died in 1864 is not the right man

Parcell, Edward W.   29   (1832 -  1871)  Either born in Ireland or OH;  Mustered in on 5 Ju 61;  Was brought up on charges by Lt. Frank Fee on 25 Nov 61 at Camp Gauley, (W)V, for violating Article 6 of the Articles of War, specifically by getting drunk and "gravely insulting" Lt.

Ryan, Cornelius   34  (1827 - 1902)  Born in Ireland;  Mustered in on 5 Jun 61;  Sent to hospital in Murfreesboro "Sick" on 4 May 63--the illness is not specified, but (while not fatal) it must have been sufficiently debilitating to warrant his being transferred to the Veterans' Relief Corps on 1 Sep 63 (although the final transfer paperwork was dated 12 Jan 64);  He lived in the Greater Cincinnati area (Newport, KY) when he entered the Disabled Veterans' Home in Dayton in 1886;  He was described as being 5' 6" with fair complexion, grey eyes and grey hair;  He worked as a Tailor in civilian life;  He was a widower whose next of kin was his daughter, Bridget Norman in Fairmount (Hamilton Co), OH;  He apparently lost his left ring finger due to a gunshot wound that occurred at Cripple Creek--he says it happened in Jun 63, but it might have happened in May and could even be the reason for his hospitalization on 4 May 63;  He complained of problems with his "resp[iratory] organs and eyes" as well;  He died there on 2 May 1902 from Asthma caused by Chronic Bronchitis;  He is buried in the National Cemetery there in Grave M-20-31
