Andrews, Robert F.  26 (1835 - )  Mustered in on 1 Nov 61; Discharged to Mississippi Marine Brigade 6 Mar 63, served in Capt. Walling's Light Battery of the MMB, Co. A;  born Perry, NY, 5' 4 1/2", light hair and complexion, gray eyes; He and Cpl Edmond Nichols both transferred on the same day to the MMB; The MMB became the 1 Missouri Light Art., Battery E; consequently, Robert became a Private in this new unit;  He was mustered out in Vicksburg as of April 1865 "loss 1 Feb 1865" (?) as per Gen Order # 2 of 1 Jan 65  (Can somebody tell me what this means?); Robert's father, Josiah Andrews, was a conductor on the Underground Railroad

Arndt, Jeremiah 21 (1841 - 1921)  Mustered in on 5 Sep 61;  Wounded 31 Dec 62 at Stones River;  In his book, Our Battery, Orlando P. Cutter lists him as only "slightly wounded" at Stones River, meaning he was able to "continue on duty"; Vet;  Mustered out  22 Jul 65; 

Avery, Robert S.  22  (1841 - 1906)  Mustered in on 11 Aug 61;   Mustered out 16 Jun 65 Chattanooga, TN;  Lived in Cleveland, OH for most of his life;  Worked as lawyer and dabbled in local politics 

Axford, Joseph  25  (1837 - 1911)  He was born in England and came to America when he was a child;  He was mustered in on 5 Sep 61;  He was one of the five men voted by his comrades to be placed on the Roll of Honor created by Gen. Rosecrans in Mar 63;  Like many members of Battery B, he transferred to Battery K on 6 Apr 64; after the War, he was a deputy sheriff in Cleveland

Barnes, John L. 18 (1843 - 1919)  He was mustered in on 5 Sep 61 and mustered out with the rest of the battery on 22 Jul 65;  military life must have agreed with him, because he served in the US Marines from 1866 - 1870; he was living in Arkansas when he died

Bayard, Thomas K.  21  (1840 - 1910)  Thomas was mustered in with the original battery on 5 Sep 61; according to his family, he was the Bugler for the Battery, although he is not listed as Bugler on the official roster;   Like many of the unit, he transferred to Battery K on 6 April 64

 

Beers, John Pitney***  23  (1840 - 1863)  Mustered in 11 Aug. 62;  Died 10 May 1863 at Camp Cripple Creek of typhoid fever (Orlando P. Cutter in Our Battery says he died at noon on Sunday, 11 May, then, in the next paragraph, he says that Sunday was 10 May;  clearly Beers died on Saturday, 10 May); Cutter later says tha Beers' body was escorted outside the camp by members of his detachment and the body sent home;  There is a plot and a military headstone for Beers in the Stones River National Cemetery;  There is also a headstone for him in the family plot in Cuyahoga Co., OH (one of the headstones is probably a cenotaph, since I doubt his remains were divided between the two burial sites)

Binehower, Joseph  20 (1841 - 1922)   He mustered in on 5 Sep 61;  Was one of many who transferred to Battery K  6 Apr 64;  In his later years, he was an insurance agent;  He died of a heart ailment that was exacerbated by an auto accident

Bluin, Jacob   18  (1844 - 1933)  He mustered in on 5 Sep 61 and mustered out 22 Jul 65:  He was considered a "Vet" for re-enlisting after his initial three years were up

Boice (or Boies), Jerome  19  (1842 - 1915)  He was born in New York; Mustered in on 5 Sep 61;  Transferred to Battery K  6 Apr 64

Boon, John  32  (1829 - 1900)  Mustered in on 5 Sept 61;  Captured on 6 Aug 62, near McMinnville, TN, was paroled, and returned to the unit a few days later;  He was one of the five men voted by his comrades to be placed on the Roll of Honor created by Gen. Rosecrans in Mar 63;  Transferred to Battery K on 6 Apr 64;  Lived in Wisconsin during the late 1880s;  At the time of his death in Chicago, he was a widower and he worked as a Plasterer

Bull, Charles H.  (1839 - <after 1890> ) Born 1839 in NY (according to his burial record);  Mustered into Battery B of the 1 OH LA on 18  5 Sep 61;  Transferred to Battery K  6 April 64;  He also served in the 193 OH Inf., Co. I (pension record says J), attaining the rank of Sgt;  He filed for a pension from Colorado in 1890 as an Invalid; He is buried in Denver, Colo. but there is no death date information, only a birthdate

Burnham, David  22  (1840 -  ) Mustered in on 7 Aug 62;  Discharged due to disability on  1 Feb 64

Carter, Francis  26  (1832 - 1898) Mustered in on 5 Sep 61;  Vet;  Mustered out  on  22 Jul 65;  Born in England, Francis and his wife and children moved from Ohio to Iowa at the time of the 1880 Census, but were back in Ohio by 1890 and would remain there until Francis' death in 1898 

Chambers, Hugh  24  (1838 - 1916)  Mustered in on 5 Sept 61;  He was one of several men who transferred to Battery K on  6 Apr 64;  After the War, Hugh was a Farmer in Lorain County, OH

Chapman, William H.  22  (1839 - 1885)  Mustered in on 5 Sept 61 and transferred to Battery K on 6 Apr 64;  He married Sarah Hathaway in 1866 and lived in Cleveland for the rest of his life

Chester, Edwin  30  (1832 - 1907)  He was mustered in on 13 Aug 62 and mustered out on 16 Jun 65 in Chattanooga, TN;  He made his living as a Carpenter;  His only son (Robert) was a soldier in 1900

Cole, Orlando D.*  19  (1843 - 1864)  He was mustered in 11 Aug 62;  he died 8 Mar 64 in  Nashville, TN "of disease";  On her application for his pension, his mother's name is given as Lydia A. Cole;  His father was (I think) Jonathan Cole (listed as Cowle in the 1850 Census for Orange, Cuyahoga Co., OH);  This would make him and and the next man on this list, Samuel B. Cole, brothers--and probably cousins of Sardis Cole

Cole, Samuel B.  21  (1841 - 1934)  Mustered in on 5 Sep 61; Wounded on 19 Sep 63 at Chickamauga; After his return to this battery from the hospital, he transferred to Battery K on 6 Apr 64; Invalid pension filed 1897 from Missouri;  He died and is buried in Bates Co., MO; I believe that he and Orlando D. Cole were brothers and that Sardis Cole was a cousin

Cole, Sardis S.  35  (1826 - 1870)  Mustered in on 5 Sept 61 and mustered out on 22 Jul 65;  Vet;  The National Park Service Index of Civil War Soldiers lists "Samuel S. Cole" as an alternate name for him;  He was probably a cousin of the Cole brothers listed above

 

Coleman, John S.  32  (<1829>- 1883)  Born in Mass, he was living in Barnstable, Mass at the time of the 1860 Census, so I am not sure how he ended up in Ohio at the outbreak of the War; He originally volunteered for a 3-month enlistment from 27 Apr 61 until 13 Aug 61 in the 14th OH Infantry, Co., I;  There seems to be a slight overlap in the dates, since the Roster of Battery B indicates that he was mustered in with them on 10 Aug 61 as an Artificer;  Vet;  Mustered out 22 Jul 65;  He and his family lived in East Cleveland after the War;  His wife (Elizabeth) filed for a widow's pension in 1883

Cutter, Orlando Phelps  37  (1824 - 1884) One of the original group of enlistees to join the Battery on 5 Sept 61, he chose to reenlist and mustered out with the unit on 22 Jul 65; his memoir, Our Battery, is one of the main sources used on the Calendar pages

Dalgleish, Walter W.   21  (1840 - 1924)  He mustered in with the second wave of recruits on 8 Aug 62 and mustered out on 16 Jun 65 at Chattanooga, TN; Walter's father was Robert Dalglish and Walter's younger sister, Mary, may be the Mary A. Dalglish (daughter of Robert) who married Lester J. Richmond of Battery B--perhaps a Wartime romance?;  After the War, Walter relocated to the West Coast, settling in San Bernadino Co., CA;  His War records list him as Walter Dalglish 

 

Day, Joseph A.  18  (1843 - 1934)  He mustered in on 5 Sept 61 and mustered out on 7 Nov 64;  After the War, he worked in the Railway Mail Service for 34 years, living in East Cleveland, OH

Deidrick, Frank  22  (1840 -  1931)  He mustered in on 18 Aug 62 and mustered out on 16 Jun 65 in Chattanooga, TN;  Died 5 Jan 1931 in Elyria, OH

 

Disbrow. James  43  (1816 - 1878)  He mustered in with the original group of recruits, but he transferred to Veteran Reserve Corps on  22 Apr. 64, due, perhaps, to his being twice as old as some of his fellow soldiers

Dodge, Marvin "Mack"  18  (1843 - 1897)  Mustered in on 5 Sept 61; mustered out on 22 Jul 65;  Vet;  Marvin has a plot in two different cemeteries, both in Marion Co., TN (neither set of records has any dates listed and one transcription erroneously states he was in the "L4" rather than the "LA");   His pension file shows him as living in Tennessee for the last years of his life, with his widow's pension being filed in 1897;  A family source on Ancestry.com lists his birthplace as "at sea" to Irish immigrant parents

 

Ebert, Charles F. 19   (<1844> - 1900)  Enlisted 13 Aug 1862;  mustered out 16 June 1865 in Chattanooga, TN;   Married Matilda Harrott in Dec. 1867 in Cuyahoga Co, OH;  Census (1870, 1880, 1890), marriage and pension records list him as "Charles Ebert" and show his place of birth as either Bavaria or Ohio;   Military records show him as "Charles Abbott, alias Charles Ebert";  If he truly was born in Bavaria, he may have spoken with an accent and this may account for the discrepancy in the name;  he worked as a Sign Painter for many years and later as a Foreman and a Vice-President of the Cleveland "Anzeiger" Publishing Company;  the 1894 Cleveland City Directory shows Charles F. Ebert living at 43 Brunswick St  and a newspaper report (18 June 1894, Cleveland Leader) of an attempted burglary has a Charles Ebert of 43 Brunswick Street wrestling the "midnight marauder" to the ground, leading to the intruder's arrest!  Clearly, the bravery shown by Charles during the War had not diminished 30 years later!;  Sadly, an article written after his death (1 Feb. 1900 in the Cleveland Plain Dealer) tells of a Coroner's inquest to determine whether his death by gunshot was a suicide  (the same article tells of his coming from Germany at age 7 with his parents and having been wounded twice at Chickamauga in the 1st Ohio Artillery, also);  A follow-up on the inquest (4 Feb) has the Coroner describe the gunshot injury as a mere flesh wound (most likely from cleaning his gun carelessly) that may have hastened his death by Bright's Disease; It is possible that William Abbott (alias Ebert) was his brother

 

Ebert, William  23  (<1839> - 1890)  Enlisted 13 Aug 62;  mustered out  16 June 65 in Chattanooga, TN; married Eliza Moader in May 1868 in Cuyahoga Co., OH;  Pension records list him as "William Ebert" although military records show him as "William Abbott, alias William Ebert";  It is possible that Charles Abbott (alias Ebert) was his brother

Fast, James Hayes  21  (1840 - 1901)  Born in OH, he lived most of his life in Ashland Co., OH;  Mustered in 5 Sept 61;  Was one of the men captured near McMinnville, TN on 6 Aug 62,  but released and returned to camp a couple of days later;  Was appointed Cpl on 11 Mar 65;  Vet; Mustered out on 22 Jul 65; He worked as a Railroad Engineer upon leaving the service

A,  on 27 Feb 64;  Through the years he held different jobs, including Cook, Saloon Keeper, and Tailor;  He, his wife, and children remained in Cuyahoga County, OH after the War

Grant, John  21  (1840 - 1912)  Mustered in when the battery was formed on 5 Sep 61; Orlando P.

Leonard, William R.  18   (1834 -  )  Mustered in 9 Aug 62;  Mustered out 25 Jun 65 in Chattanooga, TN;  He filed a pension request as an Invalid in 1899 from Colorado;   That's the end of what I know for certain, but here is an interesting possibility:  There was a William Leonard, born in KY in Dec 1834, a widower who was a Miner in 1900 in (Ready for the irony?)  Cripple Creek, Co!;  There is a William R. Leonard in the Denver, CO City Directory for several years between 1903 and 1918, but I beleive this man was William Ryan Leonard, born 1854 (or 52) in PA and died in Denver in 1918--no mention of Civil War service in his bio and he would have been too young, anyway);  And there is a William R. Leonard who is the Postmaster in Leonard (San Miguel Co.), CO in 1905

Lewhellen, William   23  (1838 -  )     Mustered in 10 Aug 61;  Transferred to Battery K on 6 Apr 64;  His pension record has him listed a Battery E, but I believe this is the right man;  He filed as an Invalid in 1892 and his widow (Margaret L.) filed her petition in 1906(?), both from OH

Long, Henry A.   18  (1838 - 1901)   Mustered in on 9 Aug 62;  Mustered out on 16 Jun 65 in Chattanooga, TN;  While the birth year of 1838 doesn't match with his being 18 when he was mustered in, it is the date shown with his burial record;  He died on 10 Mar 1901 in Cleveland of strangulation

 

Luster, George 28  (1833 -  1904)  Born in Ohio, he lived most of his in Cuyahoga County;  Mustered in 10 Aug 61 as an Artificer;  Mustered out 12 Jan 63 as a supernumerary by order of the War Dept  (What, exactly, does this mean?);  His pension record only lists his service in Battery B of the 1st OH, but his military tombstone indicates he served in Battery B of the 23rd OH Light Artillery;  Likewise, his Compiled Service Record only lists the 1st OH;  Did he enlist in the 23rd OH LA after he left Cripple Creek?

McCowen, Henry H.  33  (1828 - 1911)    Mustered in 5 Sept 61;  Vet;   Mustered out 22 Jul 65;  Invalid pension request filed 1890 from OH;  Buried Wood Lawn Cemetery in Cleveland; Cause of death: Old Age;  The family spelled the last name McCowan

Mace, Henry   33  (1828 - 1904)    Born on The Isle of Man in Great Britain, he settled in Cuyahoga County, OH and resided there for the rest of his life;  The 1890 Veterans' Census incorrectly lists him as having been in the 19th NY LA;  Mustered in on 26 Jul 62;  Transferred to the Veterans' Reserve Corps on 27 Feb 64

 

Manning, Peter  21  (1840 - )    Mustered in on 5 Sept 61;  Vet;  Mustered out on 22 Jul 65;  There is a Peter Manning b. <1840> in Ireland living in Ashtabula Co., OH in 1880 with his wife Maria, their children, and his Uncle John Barrett;  there is also a Peter Manning b. <1840> in Ireland living in Portage Co., OH in 1870 with his wife, Maria, and their son;  Are either of the Peters in the Census records the same Peter who was at Cripple Creek?  What became of the 1st OH's Peter Manning after 1865?

Recklee, but virtually all other documents list him as Frank (Francis) X. Millman;  There is never any explanation for why he was listed as Frank Recklee on the Roster;  In 1870, he and his wife lived with his parents (Henry and Mary Millman) in Cumberland, Allegheny Co., MD (Frank is listed as a Farmer, his father is a Farmer and Gardener from Hanover);  Frank filed his Invalid pension application in 1894 from MD  (Recklee is noted as an alias);  In the 1880 Census, he is listed as a Gardener in Cumberland, MD; In the 1900 Census for Cumberland, MD, his occupation is Florist;  His widow (Sarah A. Millman) filed for his pension in 1924, also from MD  

Mooney, Hugh B.  23  (1838 -  )   Mustered in on 1 Oct 61

Nagle, George*   21  (1841 - 1865)    Mustered in on 11 Aug 62;  Died on 8 Oct 65 at Bridgeport, AL hospital, buried at the Chattanooga National Cemetery, with a curious notation in the record book of internments to "switch stones" between George Nagle and the man buried next to him (James W. Cain)

Pease, Royal Edwin Allen  23  (1838 - 1916)    Born in Geauga Co., OH to Royal Anson Pomeroy Pease, (so he literally comes from a Royal line!)  Mustered in with the original group of recruits for the 1st OH on 5 Sept 61;  Vet;  Mustered out on  22 Jul 65;  After the War, he moved to Sandusky, Erie Co., OH and remained there for the rest of his life

Peet, Alden Bradford*  19  (1843 - 1865)    Born in Lorain Co., OH, the son of Homer and Lottie (Kelsey) Peet;  Homer was the brother of Joseph, making Alden the first cousin of brothers Edgar M. and Charles B.  (See below)  Mustered in on 1 Oct 61;   Captured 6  Aug 62 near McMinnville,  TN;  paroled and returned to the unit a couple of days later;  Died on 10 April 65 in hospital at Bridgeport, AL;  Buried in Lorain Co., OH

 

Peet, Edgar Marion  20  (1841 -1906)   Born in OH, the son of Joseph and Elizabeth (Larkin) Peet;  Joseph was a brother of Homer, making Edgar and Alden (above) cousins;  Charles B.

Penfield, Fletcher Starr  18  (1844 -1913)    Born in Ohio to Lathrop Penfield:  Lathrop, as well as some of his family, had come to Ohio from NY.  Lathrop's brother, Gideon, was part of this migration.  Gideon's son, Philo, enlisted the day before his cousin, Fletcher  (It should be noted that Gideon's son, Lewis, had already been in Battery B for almost a year when his brother and his cousin were mustered in;  The same is true for Harlan Penfield (listed elsewhere), who was mustered in the same day as Lewis, who was his second cousin once removed--confused yet?);   Fletcher mustered in on 9 Aug 62;  Mustered out on 16 Jun 65 at Chattanooga, TN;  Fletcher would remain in OH after the War

 

Penfield, Philo Alanson  18  (1843 -1913)    Born in Lorain Co., OH to Gideon Penfield (as mentioned elsewhere, Gideon and Lathrop were brothers, making their sons, Philo and Fletcher, first cousins--and, if you have already read the entries for the other Penfields in Battery B, you will note that Philo is the brother of Lewis R. Penfield who was a Sgt in Battery B);  Mustered in on 8 Aug 62;  Mustered out on 16 Jun 65 at Chattanooga, TN;   Philo returned to Lorain Co. after the War, but by 1880, he and his family had removed to Oceana Co., Mich, where he spent the last few decades of his life 

 

Potter, Thomas  Corwin*  20  (1841 - 1863)    Mustered in on 5 Sept 61; He was one of the five men voted by his comrades to be placed on the Roll of Honor created by Gen. Rosecrans in Mar 63;  Tragically, while fighting at Chickamauga on 20 Sept 63, he had both arms shot off by the premature discharge of a gun--he died the next day (21 Sept 63)

Renouard, Stephen Decatur  28  (<1833> - 1872)  Born in NY to William H. and Electa (Adams) Renouard (older brother of John W. Renouard of this battery);  A family source gives his birthyear as 1827;  Mustered in on 5 Sept 61;  Vet;  Mustered out on  22 Jul 65; Lived the remainder of his life in Penfield, Lorain Co., OH

 

 

 

Richards, Martin Van Buren  18  (1843 - 1917)   Mustered in on 5 Oct 61;  Vet;  Mustered out on 22 Jul 65; Lived most of his life in Darke Co., OH; (Not to be confused with the Martin Van Buren Richards (1840 - 1922) who lived in and served from Wisconsin!) 

 

 

Richmond, Lester Jerome  19  (1842 - 1924)    Mustered in on 8 Aug 62;  At one point, Lester lay ill in a hospital in Nashville, TN for 3 months.  Even if this were after the Battle of Stones River, Lester would have had at least a few weeks at Cripple Creek--and perhaps the whole time, if his hospitalization occurred at some other time during the War;  Mustered out on 16 Jun 65 in Chattanooga, TN;  After the War (1866), he married Mary A. Dalglish, the daughter of Robert Dalglish.  (Was this the same Mary who was the younger sister of fellow-artilleryman Walter Dalglish?)

Richmond, Lyman Arthur (Some of his military records list him as Lyman B. Richmond)   32  (1829 -  1878)  Born in OH, he lived most of his life in Cuyahoga County;  Mustered in 5 Sept 61;  His Compiled Service Record does not tell when he was appointed Cpl, so he may have been Pvt Richmond when he was at Cripple Creek;  Vet;  Mustered out on 22 Jul 65;  He was a Rail Road Man who was working as the Night Depot Master at Toledo's Union Depot on 27 Nov 1878 when he was struck by a "pony engine" and died from his injuries

 

 

 

 

Ripperton, John A.  22  (1838 - 1889)  Born in Medina Co., OH; Mustered in on 5 Sept 61;  Vet;  Mustered out on  22 Jul 65; After the War, he settled in Noble Co., IN

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rosborough, James A.  18  (1844 - 1916)  Born in Canada; Mustered in on 5 Sept 61;  Vet;  Mustered out on  22 Jul 65;  Is this the same James A. Rosborough who joined the Regular Army after the War?  Pension as an Invalid filed in Ariz in 1895; Widow's (Louisa's) pension applied for in Calif in 1916;

 

 

 

 

 

Ross, Henry A. C.  19  (1843 - )  Mustered in on 13 Aug 62;  Mustered out on 18 May 65;  Filed for Pension as an Invalid in 1890 in Mass and his widow (America A. Ross) in 1897 from OH;  However there is a Pauper's Statement dated 13 Jan 1900 from the City of Middleborough, Mass to the City of Taunton regarding a destitute couple (Henry A. C. Ross, born ca 1843, and his wife, Emma E. Hathaway) who have recently moved from Taunton to Middleborough--coincidence?  This same couple was married in Taunton, Mass on 19 Nov 1891: Henry A. Ross, son of Charles C. and Sarah B. Ross, aged 49, a soliciting agent from Philadelphia, PA, and Emma E. Hathaway, daughter of Hiram F. and Abigail S. Hathaway, aged 37, a housekeeper from Boston; 1900 Census for Boston, MA has Henry C. Ross b. Nov. 42 in New Jersey and Emma E. Ross b. Jan 54 in Mass living as Lodgers--he works as a Collector?, they have been married 9 years, no children; 1910 and 1915 they are living in Rochester, NY;  This whole tangent with Emma and paupers, etc. is probably just a wild goose chase!

 

Sarles, Benjamin H.  18  (1843 -  1878)  Mustered in 5 Sept 61;  Wounded at Stones River   (Was he at Cripple Creek?)  Appointed Cpl on 5 Jan 64;  Vet;  Mustered out 22 Jul 65;  Mother's pension application dated 1886 (Lydia A. Sarles);  Widow's pension application dated 1891 (Jessie M. Honsinger)--both filed from OH;  Burial information from Woodlawn Cemetery, Huron Co., OH states that Benjamin H. Sarles died 22 Apr 1877 "Age 30 y, 11 m, 28 d,;  Co B. 1 Reg O.V.I."  I have a couple of problems with this inscription:  (1) he was not in the Infantry (OVI), although that is close enough; (2) figuring back 30 y, 11 m, 28 d from 22 Apr 77 puts his birthdate on 26 Mar 1846--this would make him only 15 1/2 when he enlisted (a little young, but not unheard of);  There is an article in the Clyde Sentinel dated 27 Apr 77 concerning the death of B. H. Sarles in Clyde (Sandusky Co.), OH on 22 Apr 78, but I haven't been able to locate it yet;  I would imagine he died as the result of some sort of accident; 1870 Census for Norwalk, Huron Co., OH shows Ben H, 24, b. OH as the son of Henry and Lydia Searles

 

Sawtell, Levi L.*  45  (1815 - 1864)     Mustered in on 2 Aug 62, he was slightly wounded at the Battle of Stones River, but not seriously enough to cause him to leave his men;  However, he was wounded again and died on 24 Feb 64 in Nashville, TN

 

 

Schmehl, George  21  (1840 - <1890> )  Born in Hesse Darmstadt;  Mustered in 10 Aug 61 as an Artificer;  Vet;  Mustered out 22 Jul 65;  In the 1880 Census, he is listed as a Blacksmith;  His pension application as an Invalid was filed in 1888 from OH;  His widow (Helen A.) filed her application in 1890;  His pension information card shows him assigned to Batteries I and M as well as to Battery B

Seidel, Frank H.  22  (<1838> - 1914)  Born in Germany, he came to the US around 1847; Mustered in on 5 Sept 61;  Vet;  Mustered out on  22 Jul 65;  Removed to Iowa in the 1870s;  Pension application for Invalid status dated 1890 in Iowa with a note that he died 1 Apr 1914 (Anthon, Woodbury Co., IA)

Shukers, John A.  20  (1841 - 1922)  Born in OH; Mustered in 5 Sept 61;  Appointed Cpl on 8 Nov 64;  Vet;  Mustered out 22 Jul 65; Had moved to KS by 1880 and died there in Chautauqua Co.

Singer,  William H.   18  (1842 - 1926)  Born in OH, he lived most of his life in Ashland Co., OH;  Mustered in 5 Sept 61;  Military records do not record the date when he was appointed Cpl, so he might have still been Pvt Singer at Cripple Creek;  Vet;  Mustered out 22 Jul 65;  Filed for his pension as an Invalid in 1886 (no further pension records);  At the time of the 1890 Census, he was living in Ashland Co., OH and was troubled by Piles and Rheumatism;  There are a couple of William H. Singers in the same general area and the same general time frame whose burial records indicate they were Union veterans, but do not tell which regiment, so I am making an educated guess that our William was the one married to Olive who is buried in the Old Dutch Church Cemetery in Ashland Co.

 

 

Sloan, James M.  20  (1842 - 1917)   There are conflicting dates for his birthyear (1842 on his tombstone, 1843 in family records, 1844 on the 1900 Census);  Mustered in on 5 Sept 61;  Vet;  Mustered out on  22 Jul 65;  By 1880, he and his family were living in Iowa;  He listed himself as a Carpenter on the Iowa Census;  His widow, Annie, filed her pension claim in Iowa;  They are buried in Marion Co., IA

Snyder, John  20  (1841 -  )  Mustered in 5 Sept 61;  Military records do not specify on what date he was appointed Cpl, so he might have still been a Pvt when he was at Cripple Creek;  He was one of the five men voted by his comrades to be placed on the Roll of Honor created by Gen. Rosecrans in Mar 63Vet;  Mustered out on 22 Jul 65;  His widow, Lizzie, filed for his pension in 1895 from OH;  There are so many John Snyders in OH at this time, that it is hard to say which one he is (if he even died in OH);  My guess is that he is the John Snyder 1844 - 1881 buried in the Erie St Cemetery in Cleveland (spouse Elizabeth Hattie Snyder), but I can't say for certain;  Maybe YOU know which one he was!

Sprinkle, Adam  18  (1844 - 1923)  Born in Ashland Co., OH;  Mustered in on 5 Sept 61;  Vet;  Mustered out on  22 Jul 65;  Adam worked as a Carpenter;  He died in Richland, OH

 

Stanfield, William R. (or H.)   29  (1832 - 1894)     Born in NY, he was living in Lorain Co., OH by 1850;  He was mustered into Battery B as "William R.", but his other records (tombstone, Census, family records) show him as "William H.";  Mustered in on 5 Sept 61;  Vet;  Mustered out on  22 Jul 65;  By 1880, he was living in Buffalo (Erie Co.), NY;   His widow (Maggie) filed for his pension in 1894 in NY and they are buried in Buffalo

 

 

 

Story, Francis Drake  18  (1843 - 1912?)  Served a three-month enlistment in the 19th OH Inf, Co. F (27 Apr - 30 Aug 61);  Less than a week later, he was mustered into Battery B on 5 Sept 61;  Vet;  Mustered out on  22 Jul 65; At the time he files for his pension as an Invalid, he is living in the Disabled Veterans' Home at Ft. Leavenworth, KS.  He entered there in and was described at  5' 10" tall, light complected, and single;  it further stated that he earned a living as a Carpenter, however on 16 Jul 1866, he was in some sort of accident in which he lost three fingers and the thumb of his left hand--presumably making it difficult for him to earn a living and/or to live independently;  He voluntarily left the Veteran' Home in1891, but returned for a few months in 1891-92;  The final entry says he transferred to a different Veterans' Home, but it does not say where;  At some point, he was married (after he left the Home?), for his widow, Saviah, makes a widow's claim in 1916 under the name Saviah Liston;  Had she remarried?;  One record on Ancestry shows his death year as 1912, but there is no further information;  There is also a record for a Francis Story (no middle initial) who served in Battery L of the 1st OH Light Artillery--is this a relative? 

 

Stroup (Strope), Erastus H.  22  (1839 - 1906)   Mustered in on 5 Sept 61;  He was with the group that transferred to Battery K on  6 April 64;  He was mustered out from Battery K on 15 Sept 64 in Nashville, TN;  He filed as an Invalid in 1890 from OH (Erastus H. Strope); 1900 Census he is living at the Ohio State Soldiers' and Sailors' Home in Erie Co., OH;  10 Oct 1906 Sandusky, OH obituary also lists him as Erastus H. Strope 

Swift, Edwin A. Also known as A. Edward Swift and Adonirum Edwin Swift  28  (<1834> - 1909)  Born in NY, his family moved to OH;  I am guessing that he is somehow related to Henry Adonirum Swift, who was the third Governor of Minnesota, but I haven't figured out the exact connection yet;  Mustered in on 6 Aug 62;  Discharged on 10 Nov 64 at Nashville, TN;  Invalid petition filed 5 Apr 65 and his widow (Isabell) filed her petition for his pension in 1909 in OH;  He is buried in the National Cemetery in Dayton, OH (listed as Adonirum F. Swift) in Plot O - P, C, 4

Twerell, William  33  (1828 - 1866)    Mustered in with the original group of recruits on 5 Sept 61;  Vet;  Mustered out on  22 Jul 65;  Died the following year and is buried in Ashland Co., OH

Tyson, Henry  18  (1843 - 1918)   Originally joined the 7th OH Infantry, Co. A on 22 April 61 as a three-month enlistment, which was over on 22 Aug 61;  He then joined the 1st OH Lt. Artillery, Battery B on 5 Sept 61;  Vet;  Mustered out on 22 Jul 65;  When he filed his application as an Invalid in 1889, he was living in Arizona;   In Jan 92, he entered the Home for Disabled Veterans in Sawtelle, CA where he was listed as single, Protestant, a laborer, 5' 7 1/2", aged 49, with a light complexion, suffering from rheumatism;  he died there on 7 Mar 1918;   (His brother, Lewis Morris Tyson, who is listed elsewhere, was discharged due to disability from Battery B on 7 Jul 62)

 

Valentine, Cyrus B.  29  (1831 - 1901)   Born in NY, he was living in Cuyahoga Co., OH by 1850;  Mustered in to Battery K of 1st OH on 5 Sept 61;  Transferred FROM  Battery K to Battery B on 1 Dec 61;  He was one of the five men voted by his comrades to be placed on the Roll of Honor created by Gen. Rosecrans in Mar 63;  Transferred BACK to Battery K on 6 Apr 64;  Continued to live in Cuyahoga Co. OH until moving to IL in the 1890s

 

Waters, George  19  (1841 - )   Mustered in 5 Sept 61;  Vet;  Mustered out on 22 Jul 65

 

 

 

Webster, James H.  24  (1838 - 1912)    Born in PA;  He originally enlisted with Co. B of the 19th OH Inf. on 27 Apr 61 as a 3-month enlistment (ending 29 Aug 61);  Mustered in with the 1st OH Light Art.  on 1 Oct 62;  Vet;  Mustered out on 22 Jul 65;  His widow, Mary E., filed her pension application in 1913 from Missouri;  (His headstone gives his date of death as 1912 and his middle initial as H)

 

 

Walstead, John  20  (1841 - 1878)   Mustered in on 5 Sept 61--originally in Battery K;  Transferred FROM  Battery K on 1 Dec 61;  Transferred BACK to Battery K on 6 Apr 64;  Died of apoplexy on 9 Dec. 1878 in Cleveland;  The cemetery record (Erie St. Cemetery in Cleveland) lists his date of death as 11 Dec., but I believe the cemetery records are wrong, due to the fact that the original death notice was published on 11 Dec. in the Cleveland Leader and gave 9 Dec as the date he died;  The cemetery also shows the year of his birth as 1840;  He was a partner in the (printing?) firm of Johns and Wellsted;  His name is variously spelled as Wallsted, Welstad, etc. and his middle initial is given as G in the newspaper, as H in the cemetery record, and as C in the 1860 Census;  More confusion comes in his place of birth:  England or Ohio, depending upon which Census you read

White, Daniel Ford, Jr.  20  (1841 - 1913)   Born in NY;  Mustered in on 5 Sept 61;  Vet;  Mustered out on  22 Jul 65;  Buried Huron Co., OH--headstone confirms he was in the 1st OH Battery B;  However, he may not be related to Alonzo and Theodore White who were also in Battery B--I say this since, according to the Find-A-Grave bio, he had no brothers, and going back a generation to his father's brothers, none of them had sons named Alonzo or Theodore

 

 

Wolfe, Jacob   23  (<1838> -  )  Mustered in on 5 Sept 61;  Captured on 6 August 62 near McMinnville, TN;  paroled and returned to the unit by the 9th of August;  Transferred to Battery K on 6 April 64
