COMPANY  H  OFFICERS  at  CRIPPLE  CREEK

[Capt James Edward Stacey  32   (1831 - )  Born in England;  He married Mary C. Smith in 1849 in Cleveland, OH and they lived with Mary's parents in 1850;  Mustered in on 13 Jun 61 as Capt of Co H;  Beginning in Jun 62, he was on Detached Duty as part of Gen Nelson's staff and then on Gen Gilbert's staff until May 63;  Was he at Cripple Creek for a few weeks from May - Jun 63?--I doubt it, as he seems to have been in Franklin during this period;  He was dismissed on 15 Jun 63 on a charge of Forgery concerning a pass he signed a superior's name to that would have enabled him to see a Mrs. Carter of Franklin, with whom he admittedly had an "amor of the head and not the heart";  Gen Granger, the officer whose name he forged, stated on 4 Jul 63,  "I consider...Capt Stacey...an object of pity and a fit subject for official clemency& therefore recommend him to mercy--His brains may possibly return to him again & assume their proper place and functions";  He was reinstated on 8 Jul 63;  He was wounded slightly at Chickamauga on the left thumb and the right thigh on 19 Sep 63;  He spent the months of Sept 63 through Mar 64 on medical leave, suffering from Dyssentery, Remittant Fever, Rheumatism, Anemia, and General Deblity (no mentions of his battle wounds);  Questions were being raised against him again for being in Nashville (on medical leave, but not admitted to any hospital) during this time--"Stacey is in Nashville...why is he there, under what orders, what is the nature of his orders," how long before he will be able to return to his duties, etc.;  It can be speculated that he was continuing his "amor"--all of this while having a wife and family in Cleveland, OH; He resigned 15 Mar 64;  I find no record of a divorce or remarriage for him, however, by 1870 he and his wife Lida/Delila are living in Nashville where he lists himself as a Hotel Clerk and in 1880 as a Fruit Dealer;  He files for his pension as an Invalid in 1882 from TN, but when he died on 21 Aug 1886, he and Delila are living in Washington, DC;  Delila files for her Widow's pension on 6 Sep 86, but on 29 Sep 86, his "Con. Widow" [?], Mary, files for a Widow's Pension from NY;  He is buried in Cleveland;  All of this is interesting, but it seems that Capt J. Edward Stacey was never stationed at Cripple Creek, even though he was the subject of gossip and speculation on the part of the men who were there!]

Parkhurst  30  (1833 - 1923)  Born in Chippewa Co, Mich;  Mustered in on 5 Jun 61 as a Cpl;  Promoted to 1 Sgt on 6 Jul 61;  Promoted to 1 Lt on 13 Mar 62 (skipping the rank of 2 Lt);  Would become the Capt of Co G on 9 Jan 64;  After the War he married Hariett Richardson in Mich in 1864 and made his business in Real Estate and Insurance;  He married second in 1912 Mary Hutchins;  He died and was buried in Eaton Co, Mich
