Lt Bontecou has become a confirmed drunkard, has lost all interest in his duties, and all respect for himself."; Col Cruft, as he forwarded the letter up the chain of command said, "I trust the resignation will be quietly accepted and Lt Bontecou be permitted to go without further disgrace than is implied in resigning under charges." After his resignation on 6 Aug 63, he enlisted in the 10th OH Light Artillery Independent Battery as a Private and rose to the rank of 2nd Lt; After the War, he married Maria Oven in Lenawee, Mich in 1870 and worked as a Lecturer, Journalist, and Editor; He died in Emmet Co, MI in 1904 and is buried in the Greenwood Cemetery; Obviously a gifted man who struggled with demons--I hope he was able to overcome them and to share his gifts with the world

McCormack, Martin 19 (1842? - 1922?) THIS IS WHAT I KNOW FOR CERTAIN: Mustered in on 3 Jun 61; In Hospital in McMinnville, TN on 24 Aug 63; Convalecent Camp in Bridgeport, AL beginning 25 Jun 64, even though he was mustered out on 19 Jun 64; >>>I am not certain, but I believe the Pension File for my Martin McCormack was incorrectly merged with the record for a man named Martin Carroll; Pension file for Martin McCormick lists an alias: Martin Carroll; Invalid Pension filed in MO on 18 Apr 1897; On the same Pension card, a woman name Ellen Carroll files for a Widow's Pension on 9 Dec 1918 in MO, with the notation that he died 12 Nov 1918 in St, Louis, MO; Case #1: Martin Carroll listed in St. Louis 1890 Census, but no regiment is listed; Martin Carroll buried Calvary Cem St Louis--born unknown, died Nov 1918, aged 77; Martin Carroll's death certificate was for a man aged 77 who was a Stationary Engineer born in Canada to a French Canadian father, Married,[no wife named] who died of General Arteriosclerosis and Bronchopneumonia on 12 Nov 1918--information provided by a City Hospital employee [name illegible]; Martin Carroll and Helen, his wife, lived in St. Louis, where he was a Fireman in a Brewery; In 1900, Martin and Allie Carroll live at the same address as in 1910--he is still a Fireman in a Brewery, he claims to have been born in Canada in Feb 1839, arrived in America in 1840, and married about 1865; In 1880, Martin and Ellen live in St. Louis where he is a Fireman--he was born about 1840 in Canada; Martin Carroll is listed in St. Louis 1870 as a Fireman in a Paper Rolling Mill; In 1860, there is a Martin Carroll, born ca 1840 in Canada, who is a S.B. Hand [another man is a S.B. Cabin Boy] in Cincinnati; US Veterans' Admin Master Index lists Martin/Martin Carroll/McCormick with Military Service born 25 Feb 1839 and Military Date 19 Jun 1864 with Residence listed as St. Louis and Death Date 12 Nov 1918 Case #2: Martin McCormack Ohio, US Soldier Grave Registrations lists Martin McCormack, born in Mass in 1842, Enlisted 12 May 61 and Discharged 19 Jun 64 who died in Cincinnati 2 Feb 1922. buried in Calvary Catholic Cemetery; Grave Registration card shows he was in Co B, 2 KY; THEREFORE, since this record actually links a Martin McCormack to the 2 KY, I will go with the man listed in Case #2 and list the dates 1842 - 1922 as MY Martin
