Becker, John   38  (1822 - 1892)  Mustered in on 3 Jun 61 as Capt of Co K; Captured at Stones River and confined in Atlanta;  Returned to his Command on 17 May 63;  Mustered out 18 Jun 64;  Buried in the Vine St Hill Cemetery in Cincinnati; The burial records of the cemetery show that he died in 3 Apr 1892, not 3 May 1893 as the Military Headstone record indicates--cause of death Chronic Rheumatism; There is no Widow's pension record, which leads me believe he is the John Becker in Cincinnati 1880 who was a Widower who worked as a Policeman, however, there is a peculiarity with this: He appears TWICE in the 1880 Census for Cincinnati--both listings for an address on McMicken Ave, both men are Policemen, born 1822 in Bavaria, but in one listing (dated 21 Jun) he is married to Elizabeth and in the next (dated 5 Jun) he is a Widower who is boarding at a house nearby the first one--the Census instructions say that "all persons...who were living on the 1st day of June" will be included and that people who have "DIED SINCE June 1 1880 will be INCLUDED". There must have been a misunderstanding on the part of the Census taker of the respondent;  (A family source on Find-A-Grave lists his wife as Barbara who lived 1825 - 1877--if this is correct, then Elizabeth might have been a second wife; He is could be the John Becker (wife Barbara and children John, Edward, and Louisa), living in Cincinnati in 1850 who ran a Coffee House; He does appear in the 1890 Veterans' Census in Cincinnati


Harning, George Francis  21  (1840 - 1923)   Mustered in as 1 Sgt on 3 Jun 61;  Promoted to 2 Lt on 7 Jul 61;  Granted a furlough for 25 days beginning 20 Dec 61 (no accompanying paperwork in his file, so I don't know if it was business of some kind, a family emergency, or a medical problem of his);  Promoted to 1 Lt on 22 Jan 62;  He was listed as Commanding the Convalescent Regiment from 26 Dec 62 until Mar/Apr 63, at which time he rejoined Co K  (I find no documentation that he was ill or wounded at this time to warrant his being a patient in the Convalescent Regiment);  Mustered out on 18 Jun 64;  Buried in Spring Grove Cem;  Surname spelled any number of ways:  Homung, Harnung, Horning, etc.



Tilley, Alexander   27  (1834 - )  Mustered in as Sgt on 3 Jun 61;  Promoted to 1 Sgt on 7 Jul 61;  Promoted to 2 Lt on23 Oct 62, although he was not mustered into the position until 6 Dec 62;  Commanded the Company from 31 Dec 62 until 26 Apr 63--Capt Becker had not yet returned from being a POW and 1 Lt Harning was Commanding the Convalescent Regiment in Nashville during this time (On 3 Mar 63, Col Enyart wrote on Tilley's behalf to try to straighten out his pay situation, given the differences in official muster dates with the dates Tilley actually assumed the added responsibilities:  [Tilley]  "...has for a long time been in Command of his Company--and was in battle at Stone River and behaved Gallantly.";  Wounded at Chickamauga, GA on 19 Sep 63;  Detailed as Regimental Adjutant beginning 10 Dec 63;  Mustered out 18 Jun 64;  Name also appears as Tilly;  He might be the Alexander Tilly born in Germany about 1834 living in CIncinnati in 1860, but I don't know







Hermann, Charles   20  (1841 - )  Mustered in on 3 Jun 61 as a Musician and, as part of the Regimental Band, a member of Field and Staff--however, the Regimental Band position in F & S was soon done away with and he became just another Pvt;  Appointed a Cpl on 15 Feb 63;  Served as Company Clerk from Jun - Oct 63;  Mustered out on 18 Jun 64; Also served with the 5 USC Co L; 1 US Art Co K [?]; 18 US Sur and Gen Service Co K; USC Hosp Corps [?]; Not to be confused with the Charles Hermann, aged 24, in Co H; Living St. Louis 1890 Census; Invalid's Pension filed 1896


Hess, John   24   (1837 - )  Mustered in on 3 Jun 61 as a Cpl (although notations on the Muster Roll Cards indicate he was a Pvt to start with and was appointed Cpl either on 10 Jul 61 or 1 Feb 62);  Promoted to Sgt on 23 Oct 62 (AG's Roll erroneously says 63);  Wounded slightly in the left foot at Stones River and sent to Convalescent Camp near Nashville for Jan - Apr 63;  (The Muster Roll Card for 10 Apr shows him Present (with his Company at Cripple Creek) and also at the Convalescent Camp in Nashville--perhaps he was moved to Cripple Creek on that date?);  Mustered out 18 Jun 64

King, Charles F.   20   (1841 - 1910)   Born in Wurttemberg, Germany 4 Jun 1841; Arrived in the USA around 1857; In !860, he was a Caprenter in Cincinnati; Mustered in on 3 Jun 61 as a Cpl;  Promoted to Sgt on 1 Feb 62;  Promoted to 1 Sgt on 7 Dec 62;  Mustered out on 18 Jun 64;  Married Kate Wilhelm about 1867; In 1870, he was a Journeyman Cabinet Maker in Cincinnati; In 1880, he is a Cabinet Maket in Cincinnati; Filed for an Invalid's pension in 1895 from OH; Census 1900--still in Cincinnati; Kate filed for her Widow's Pension in 1910; Pension card says he died 27 Feb 1910; Buried in Walnut Hills Cemetery

Leibrandt, Christian   44   (<1819> - <1869>)  Born Germany; 1850 Census for Cincinnati shows Christian and Charlotta (he is a Cap Maker); Mustered in on 3 Jun 61 as a Pvt;  Taken prisoner while on picket duty on 27 Aug 61 near Camp Gauley, (W)VA--he was taken to New Orleans on 25 Sep 61 and later to Washington (or Salisbury?) NC where he was paroled on 28 May 62, sent to Camp Chase, OH on 2 Jun 62;    Appointed Cpl 15 Feb 63 (I am not sure about this date, since he did not arrive back with his Unit until 25 Mar 63);  Captured at Graysville, GA on 10 Sep 63 and sent to Andersonville Prison Camp--I find a record for someone with his name from 1 KY Co K at Andersonville, but he is not marked Absent on any of the Muster Roll Cards from Sept 63 until Jun 64 when he musters out;  Various spellings including Leligg, Librane, Leibrand, Lybrant;  He apparently enlisted in the 181st OH, Co I (or A) on 29 Sep 64 and mustered out 14 Jul 65, since there is a widow's pension in the name of Charlotte Leibrandt filed in 1869 from OH for his service in the 181st OH (no mention of the 1 KY); Christian is listed in the City Directories through 1869--Am I confusing two different men of similar age and name?  Assuming it is the same man, he died in 1869 in Cincinnati and is buried in the Walnut Hills Cemetery, just as his 1 Sgt listed above

Koelsch, John***   24  (1837 - 1863)  Mustered in on 3 Jun 61 as a Pvt, but was listed as a Deserter on 15 Jul 61--he was found driving a wagon for a different regiment and arrested;  He claimed he lost his unit and fell in with the other unit;  He apparently lost much of the uniform and equippage the Army provided him with and it had to be replaced (at his expense); Capt Becker was not pleased and brought him up on charges, but it is not clear what the disposition was;  He was allowed to rejoin Co K on 21 Oct 61;  He was appointed Wagoner on 1 Jun 62, unfortunately, this may have contributed to his death, in that he was killed in a wagon accident on 25 Apr 63 at Camp Cripple Creek; [Some of the men who wrote about this tragedy alleged that John was drunk whe he fell beneath the wagon and was run over--he lingered a day before he died of internal injuries];(See Calendar for accounts of this tragedy);  I would assume he was buried at Cripple Creek, but I cannot find any record of his being reburied at Stones River National Cemetery or anywhere else; Pension Form filed under Kelsch, with his Mother, Anna, filing on 21 Mar 64 and his Father, Walter, filing separately

Hefter, Raymond  21  (1830 - 1894)  NOTE: Military records show him as being 21 when he enlisted in 1861, making him born in 1840, yet family and other civilian records show him being born in 1830, so I will assume the military was wrong! That being said, here goes: 1860 Census of Cincinnati shows him Born in Germany circa 1830, and working as a Carpenter, married to wife Anna with two children; Family recods show he married Anna Brengman, but do not show his marriage to Magdalen Schneider; Mustered in as a Sgt on 3 Jun 61;  Granted 15 day Furlough on 16 Dec 61; Reduced to the ranks 1 Feb 62; Detached duty as Brigade Wagon Repairer 15 Jul 62, but still Present with his Company; Mustered out on 18 Jun 64; Enlisted in 13 OH Cav Co H; Married Magdalena Schneider in 1871; In 1880, "Rymond and Magdalen Hester" are living in Green Twp, where he is a Farmer; Invalid Pension filed 1889 (Raymond corrupted by Indexer into Rumused!?); 1890 Veterans Census finds him in Green Twp of Hamilton Co, OH; Died 24 Apr 1894 and buried in St. John's Cemetery in Cincinnati Sec 1, Lot 36, Grave 3;Cemetery records show him born 1830, not 1840; Magdalena's Pension filed 10 May 1894; Also lists him as Heffter


Hermansteifer, Charles  35   (1826 - )  Mustered in on 3 Jun 61;  Sick in Nashville on Sep/Oct 62 Muster Roll card; On Convalescent Duty in Nashville until Mar/Apr 63 card; Mustered out on 18 Jun 64; Name also given as Hermansdorfer, Herrmannsdoerfer, etc.; Names like these are SO hard to research!; There is a Charles Hermansdoerfer who married Francisca Stegman in Hamilton Co on 23 Jul 1865--is this our Charles? Likewise, Charles Hermannsdoerfer is listed in the Cincinnati City Directory for 1866 and 1867--he was a Saloon Keeper

Kautz, John  32   (1829 - )  Mustered in on 3 Jun 61;  Mustered out on 18 Jun 64; Not the same as Sgt John D. Kautz in Co D, b.1838; Enlisted in 82 OH Co B; Rosina filed for a Widow's Pension filed 2 Nov 1872
