John S. McDowell  44  (1819 - 1887)  Born in VT;  Moved to Vinton Co, OH around 1850;  Married Mahala J. Waltz in Vinton Co, OH in 1855;  In 1860, McDowell was employed as a Shoemaker;  Mustered in as Capt on 7 Aug 62;  During the time he was Capt of Co B, several Sergeants and Corporals were captured and sent to Confederate prisons;  It was found that the captured officers were all reduced to the rank of private because the captain thought it unfair that they should still be earning an officer's pay during their captivity--given the fact that other men were fulfilling the officers' duties back in camp;  The officers had their pay and rank restored after they were released and returned home;  Was Capt McDowell the one who gave the order to bust the men down to ranks?;  Capt McDowell would be promoted to Maj on 11 Aug 64 (but never mustered--why?);  He resigned 1 May 65--was there some connection to the reduction in ranks incident?;  He returned to his family in Vinton Co where he was a Justice of the Peace in 1870;  Moved to CA during the 1870s;  Invalid's Pension filed 1880 from CA;  He died in 1887 in San Francisco--originally buried in Golden Gate Cemetery, eventually reinterred in San Francisco National Cemetery;  Mahala filed for a Widow's Pension in 1888;  She and some of her children were interred in Oakland, CA after the turn of the century

CORPORALS  and  SERGEANTS  of  Co.  B  at  CRIPPLE  CREEK

Ansel, Benjamin P.  19  (1844 - 1906)  Born in Hocking Co, but spent nearly all of his life in Vinton Co;  Mustered in as a Pvt with the company on 27 Aug 62;  Appointed Cpl on 1 Apr 63;  Reduced to Pvt again on 1 May 63 (I do not know why--he was not one of the men "reduced in ranks" due to being a POW);  Was again appointed Cpl on 1 Apr 64;  Mustered out with the company on 13 Jun 65;  When he returned to Vinton Co, he married Mary Ellen Walker in 1866;  For the next 40 years, he worked as a Journeyman Carpenter then as a Farmer, then as a House Carpenter; He died in Vinton Co and was buried in the Oak Grove Cemetery 

 

???Curry, Nathan H.*  30  (1833 - 1863)  Born in Vinton Co, OH to Andrew and Amy (Horton) Curry;  Mustered in as a Sgt;  I do not find a listing of what Pvt Curry's cause of death was, therefore I can't be sure if he died from a sudden event (an accidental GSW or a drowning, for example) or if he died from a wasting illness that kept him hospitalized for weeks or months;  Was he ever at Cripple Creek?  I don't know--what I DO know is that he died on 22 Aug 63 in Louisville, KY and was buried in the Cave Hill Cemetery

???Defigh, Samuel   26  (1837 - 1892)  Born in Vinton Co to Philip and Elizabeth Defigh;  The Defighs were Farmers;  Samuel mustered in as a Cpl on 5 Aug 62;  Discharged on a Surgeon's Certificate of Disability on 15 Mar 63;  I do not know the nature of Samuel's disability, but it is possible he spent at least a couple of weeks at Cripple Creek;  Back in Vinton Co, he continued the family tradition of farming; In 1868, Samuel married Mary Ann Crow;  In 1880, he filed for his Invalid Pension;  That same year, the family relocated to Audrain Co, MO and continued farming; In 1892, he died and was buried in Appleman's Chapel  

Derry, George Lewis  29  (1833 - 1899)  George Derry's parents were Benjamin and Emily Derry;  George's younger brother was John H., an enlisted man in Co B. whose bio appears below;  The family were living in Wilkesville in 1840, in Meigs Co in 1850, and back to Wilkesville in 1860; He mustered in as a Cpl on 9 Aug 62;  Appointed Sgt on 3 Dec 62;  Discharged on a Surgeon's Certificate due to Inflammatory Rheumatism on 19 Jun 63;  He immediately applied for an Invalid's pension, although he managed to perform a certain amount of physical labor, since he earned his living as a Cabinet Maker;  He married Mary Sabina Curtis in 1863 in Meigs Co;  He died and was buried in Wilkesville

 

Devault, Cyrus  34  (1829 - 1899)  Born in VA;  Possibly 3 marriages: Lydia ___ date before 1850, Mary Ott 1853, and Ellen R. McKinney in 1857; In 1860, Cyrus and three other Devaults were Miners in Gold Hill, NB Territory;  Before and after the War, he was engaged in the business of Carriage Maker;  Mustered in as a Cpl on 9 Aug 62;  Mustered out with the company on 13 Jun 65;  Filed for an Invalid's Pension in 1876; Died and is buried in Wilkesville, Vinton Co, OH

Hewitt, Robert  42  (1821 - 1873)  Born in Athens Co, OH to Aaron and Mary (Lowry)  Hewitt; He married Mary Dalton in 1842 in Hocking Co, OH;  Mustered into Co B as a Pvt;  Appointed Cpl on 1 May 63;  Appointed Sgt on 1 Jan 64;  Mustered out with the rest of the company;  His promotions mirror those of James Jones (see bio below);  Spent most of his life as a Farmer in OH;  He and Mary raised 10 children;  He died and is buried in Vinton Co, OH 

Jefferson, Thomas W.[*?]  21 (1841 - 1863? 1890?  1894?)  There is conflicting information on him, however, there are a few things agreed upon by all:   (1) He was mustered into the 90th OH as a Cpl on 11 Aug 62,  (2) There is a Pension Petition for Sarah Jefferson as the mother of Thomas Jefferson of the 90th OH Inf, Co B, that was filed from IL on Aug 9, 1890, and (3) Thomas W. Jefferson was born in OH and was 21 when he enlisted in 1862;  Here are the discrepancies:  (1) The AG's Report shows him Killed in Action at Chickamauga on 20 Sep 63, but there are no records for his death or burial;  (2) There is a family record on Ancestry for a Thomas W. Jefferson who was born in OH in 1841 to Jacob and Sarah Jefferson--they lived in Vinton Co in 1860 and the parents died in Coles Co, IL--and this Thomas W. Jefferson died in Vinton Co on 8 Jul 1894,  (3) The death date in 1894 conflicts with the Pension record being filed in 1890 

Jones, James T. "Jimmy"  30  (1833 - 1917)  Born in Ceredigion, Wales;  Came with his parents, Theophilus and Harriet, and his siblings to America in 1847;  In 1850, the Joneses lived in Gallia, OH;  Jimmy married Louisa Jane Boggs there in 1857;  In 1860, James and Louisa were living in Vinton Co, where he worked as a Day Laborer; Mustered in as a Pvt in Co B on 9 Aug 62;  Like Robert Hewitt, whose bio appears above, he was appointed Cpl on 1 May 63;  Appointed Sgt on 1 Jan 64;  Mustered out with the company;  After the War, he moved his family to Pike Co, OH, where he made a living as a Farmer and a Day Laborer;  In 1890, he filed a Petition for an Invalid's Pension; By 1900, they had established a farm in Wilson Co, KS, later moving to Neosho, KS--where James died in 1917;  He was buried in Green Co, MO 

Jones, James Kimble "Kim"  21 (1841 - 1909)  Born and raised in Vinton Co, OH;  Mustered in as a Pvt on 5 Aug 62;  He was appointed Sgt on 21 Apr 63 (skipping the rank of Cpl);  Would later be promoted to 2 Lt of Co G "to date from 10 Apr 63"--could this be a typo and it should be 10 Apr 64?);  I suspect he was known as Kim Jones to differentiate him from the other Pvt Jones (see the previous man's bio) in Co B, although he might have chosen to be called "Kim" becaue members of his family usually called him by his middle name (Kimble or Kimball--Kim, for short);  He married Mahala Jane Marshall in Worth Co, MO in 1868, and lived the rest of his life there as a Farmer;  J. L. Hatfield, whose bio appears a few paragraphs above this, describes meeting Kim Jones in 1901, being pleased to find that his old friend still had the "snap in the dark eyes, resonant voice, [and] emphatic gesture" that he had when he was a mere twenty-two years old;  He and Mahala had three daughters;  He died and is buried in Grant City, Worth Co, MO

???Kennard, Richard W.*  31  (1832 - 1863)  According to family sources on Ancestry.com, Richard was born in Fairfield Co, OH, the son of John and Sarah (Johnson) Kennard;  He married Margaret E. Sain in 1852; Mustered into the 90th OH as Cpl on 6 Aug 62;  I can't say for certain if he was at Cripple Creek, since Ohio's Civil War service records on Fold3 offer nothing more than a card giving the soldier's name, rank, regiment, and possibly his age. The Register of Deaths of Volunteers identifies his cause of death as a "Cold Abscess of Thigh";  While it is a potentially life-threatening growth, it is apparently something that might have taken weeks to manifest itself;  Consequently, I imagine he was at Cripple Creek for a few weeks before requiring hospitalization--whatever the case, he died 9 May 63 in Covington, KY at the Seminary General Hospital

Miller, Jacob Guy  29  (1834 - 1918)  Born in Beaver Co, PA, his parents were Thomas and Eliza Miller;  Early in his life, his family moved to Wilkesville, Vinton Co, OH and he lived much of his life there;  When he enlisted he was 5' 7.5" tall with auburn hair, blue eyes, and a fair complexion;  His occupation wa a Teacher, although he worked many jobs--clerk in a family dry goods store, partner in a mill, and Farmer;  Mustered in on 9 Aug 62 as a Sgt;  Would be appointed 1 Sgt on 1 Jul 63; Was captured at Chickamauga on 20 Sep 63;  Was one of the officers who was reduced to a Pvt while a POW;  (See the NOTE above);  In later years, he would recount his experiences in captivity, including the time he was so desperately hungry at Libby Prison that he ate the beans from a Confederate guard's plate that had fallen into the dirt;   Mustered out on 25 Jul 65 from York, PA;  He married Eliza Jane Welles in 1865 and had 4 children with her;  Eliza died in 1878, and he married Eliza's sister, Sarah, the following year;  Sarah died in1888;  He married Mary L. Morrison, his third and final wife in 1900, eventually moving from Wilkesville to her hometown in Gallia Co; After she died in 1912, he spent his final years dividing his time between his four children;  He died in Suffolk Co, NY at the home of one of his sons, and was buried there in the Pinelawn Cemetery

Parcels, Willis  23  (1840 - 1913)  Mustered in as Cpl on 6 Aug 62;  Mustered out with the company on 13 Jun 65;  At the time of the printing of the 40th Reunion Book in 1902, he lived in  Marquette, Mich; Filed Invalid's Pension in 1880 and again in 1909;  Widow filed for Pension in 1913;  However, no ther information exists on this man--is Willis Parcels a corruption of another name, such as William Purcell?

 

Towell, John P.  35  (1827? - 1905)  Born in Ireland--dates vary with each source (1827 from his enlistment paper--age 35 in 1862--but Census records vary--1823 - 1835--tombstone says 1819, 1900 Census says Mar 1823, Family source on Wikitree says 18 Feb 1819); Married Bridget E. O'Keefe in Ireland, 1848;  Came to America in 1851; Mustered in as a Cpl;  Appointed Sgt on 26 Dec 63;  Was reduced to Pvt once again on 1 Apr 64, and mustered out with the rest of the company;  Worked at various jobs--Farmer, Common Laborer, and Foreman (which was some sort of political post in town); Died in Vinton Co and was buried there in the St. Sylvester Catholic Church Cemetery

 

 

 

Zeigler, Henry  24  (1839 - 1916)  Born in Muskingum Co, OH, but lived most of his life in Vinton Co and Meigs Co; Mustered in on 6 Aug 62 as Cpl;  Appointed Sgt on 1 May 63;  Mustered out with the rest of the company;  Married Phebe B. Piles in 1867;  Worked mostly as a Farmer;  Filed for Pension as Invalid in 1879 and again in 1907;  Widow's Pension filed in 1916 after his death in Meigs Co

 

 

 

 

OTHER  PERSONNEL   from  Co.  B  at   CRIPPLE   CREEK

Fagan, Robert  35  (1828 - )  Mustered in on 27 Aug 62 as Wagoner;  Mustered out on 13 Jun 65; Unable to find any information beyond this

Redfearn, Harrison E.  19  (1844 - 1896)  Military records list him as Redfern, but tombstone and family records spell it Redfearn;  Born in (Vinton Co?), OH, the son of Austin and Mary Redfearn;  His older brother, James M Redfearn, was medically discharged the first week of Jan 63 (presumably due to injuries incurred in the Battle of Stones River);  I am not certain of the connection (if any) between Harrison Redfearn and Emery Redfern--both families spent time in Vinton Co, so they might be cousins of some degree; Mustered in as Musician on 27 Aug 62;  Would be transferred to VRC on 22 Oct 63; He and his siblings worked on the family farm;  Harrison moved with other family members to Schuyler Co, Missouri after the War;  He married Philena Woods in 1867;  Philena apparently died a few years later;  Harrison moved on to Monroe Co, Wisc, where he married Lillie Chambers in 1882;  Harrison moved his family once more, settling in Coffey Co, KS by 1885;  He made a living a a Farmer and a Carpenter;  He died in Coffey Co, KS and is buried in the Le Roy Cemetery 

 

Wyatt, Joseph*  20  (1843 - 1864)  He was born in OH, one of 9 children in the family of William and Elizabeth (Cozad) Wyatt;  Mustered in on 27 Aug 62 as Musician;  He was one of several members of Co B who was captured on 20 Sep 63 at Chickamauga;  (See NOTE above);  While at Andersonville Prison, he died of Diarrhoea on 31 Aug 64;  Buried in the Andersonville National Cemetery in Grave 7373

NOTE:  Several men in the 90 OH were taken prisoner on 20 Sept 63, during the Battle of Chickamauga.  The AG's Report contains the notation "reduced to ranks" for those in this group who were officers.  Ordinarily, a reduction in ranks (that is, being demoted back to the rank of Private) happened when some sort of disciplinary infraction had occurred.  This resulted in a financial penalty.  A Private made $13 per month; the same was true for a Corporal.  A Sergeant made $17 a month, and a 1 Sergeant $20 a month.  The extra dollars, while considered a paltry amount by modern standards, were significant--not to mention the prestige and the social perks afforded to officers.  I wondered why these men of the 90 OH were penalized in this way--surely it wasn't simply the fact they were captured.  Hundreds of officers in other regiments were taken prisoner during the War without being busted back down to privates.  Why these men?  I would find the answer in the 40th Reunion Book, published in 1902 by H. O. Harden, on pages 223 - 224.

     According to one of these men, Sgt. Jacob G. Miller, the "reduction in ranks" remark was entered into the roll book by order of "the captain of our company".  Miller does not name him, but a review of the records shows that John S. McDowell (whose bio appears above) was the captain of Co B until his promotion to Major in Aug 64.  But, regardless of who issued the order, it was given by someone who felt that an imprisoned officer should not receive an officer's pay while some other man in the company was actually performing the officer's duties during his absence. Miller and the others knew nothing of this until they returned home, after the War's end.  The timeline went something like this:

   20 Sept 63 - Captured by the enemy during the Battle of Chickamauga, followed by being marched through the streets of Atlanta and finally to Richmond, VA 

   1 Oct until late Nov 63 - Libby Prison in Richmond, VA

    Nov 63 until 20 May 64 - Prison Camp in Danville, VA

   20 May 64 until 9 Sep 64 - Prison Camp in Andersonville, GA

   9 Sept 64 until  2 Mar 65 - Movement from Andersonville to Charleston, SC, then to Florence, SC

   2 Mar 65 - Finally the Exchange Process begins with Arrival at Wilmington, NC

   10 Mar 65 - Arrival at Annapolis, MD (Camp Parole) Hospital, and finally to various hospitals in OH before finally being mustered out and returned home

     When the men were finally paid, learning they had been demoted was something of a final slap in the face after surviving the horrors of Libby Prison and Andersonville.  They petitioned the government and finally were restored to their rightful ranks, receiving backpay and official certificates showing their proper ranks.  The men (officers and enlisted) of Company B who were captured at Chickamauga included:

                    Pvt. Lee Ogan                          Cpl. Henry Dozer                             Sgt. James M. McCollem      

                    Pvt. Mark Tinley                       Cpl. W. C. Rose                               Sgt. Jacob G. Miller

                    Pvt. Craven Turner                   Pvt. (Musician) Joseph Wyatt

Boyles, John Henry  22  (1840 - 1873)  Born in Clarion Co, PA, but his family had moved to Vinton Co, OH by 1860, when he married Eva Ann Kriebel (the sister of one of his Company B comrades--David A. Kriebel, whose bio is below);  Mustered into Company B on 8 Aug 62 as a Pvt;  Was appointed Cpl on 1 Apr 64;  Mustered out with the company on 13 Jun 65;  The couple had three children in OH before moving on to Hancock Co, IL about 1870;  He was a Farmer his whole life;  He died in 1873 and was buried in Schuyler Co, IL

Campbell, John  27  (1836 - 1917)  Born in OH;  Married Mary Ann Buckingham in 1859;  Mustered in 27 Aug 62;  Mustered out 13 Jun 65;  Worked as a Farmer in Hocking, Clark, and Ashland Counties, OH;  Entered the Soldier's Home in Dayton, OH in 1897;  At that time, he was 5' 5" with gray hair, blue eyes, and a dark complexion;  He was a Protestant, Married, and Unable to Read and Write;  He was suffering from Defective Hearing, Cardiac Hypertrophy, and Debility of Age;  He remained until 1899, returning home for a few years;  He was readmitted in 1908 and remained until 1913, when he left once again;  He was readmitted once more in 1914 and lived there until he died of Infectious Epithelioma of the Face.  He was reportedly buried in the Woodland Cemetery in Dayton;  There are a couple of curiosities reflected in some of the vital records:  In the 1890 Veteran' Census, Mary Ann is listed as his widow;  Likewise, in the Pension Application Record, it shows he filed for an Invalid's Pension in 1889 and his wife filed for a Widow's Pension in 1908;  Judging by the dates he was admitted to the Disabled Soldiers' Home, I suspect that his health took a turn for the worse and the paperwork was begun, in anticipation of his eminent demise--which did not actually happen until 1917;  (I doubt there was any deception intended by this, and I do not know when Mary Ann actually began receiving her Widow's Pension)                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          Champlin, Orrison  36  (1826 - 1908)  Born in Vinton Co, OH and lived many years of his life here;  He was married first to Sarah Jane Douglass in 1850 or 51;  Mustered in 27 Aug 62;  Mustered out 13 Jun 65;  He was  married second to Ellen Simons in 1865;  In 1880, he and his family were living in Carter Co KY;  He was married for the third and final time to Minerva Gates in 1890, back in Vinton, Co;  He was primarily a Farmer, although he worked as a Teamster in Vinton Co in 1870;  He lived in Hamden Junction, OH when he died and was buried in the Hamden Cemetery

Claypool, John Buckley  20  (1843 - 1908)  Born in either Hocking or Vinton Co, OH;  Mustered in 27 Aug 62;  Mustered out 13 Jun 65;  Married Eliza Jane Garrett in 1865;  He lived in and around Vinton Co, OH for most of his life;  Eliza Jane died in 1889;  In 1890, he reported being totally deaf in his right ear;  The 1900 Census show that he married a woman named Susanah in 1893, but I can find no further info on this marriage--I have a hunch she died in 1900-01;  He married in 1901 Lucy A. Jarvis, who would outlive him by 30 years;  At the time of the printing of the 40th Reunion Book in 1902, he lived in Hamden Junction, OH;  He died and was buried in the Hamden Cemetery in Vinton Co 

Dearth, Samuel  20  (1843 - 1922)  Born in OH to Valentine and Margaret Dearth;  Mustered in with the rest of the Company on 13 Jun 65;  Transferred to the Vet Vol Engineers on 7 Aug 64 and would muster out with them on 30 Jun 65;  Married Margaret Ann Allen in 1872;  Was a Farmer in Vinton Co, OH in 1880 and a Farmer in Ross Co, OH by 1900;  He would remain in Ross Co until his death in 1922 and was buried there in the Mount Pleasant Cemetery

Morrison;  I am not certain how, exactly, this man is related to Cpl Cyrus Devault listed above (Joseph and Cyrus were together working the gold mines in 1860, so I suspect they were cousins, or possibly half-brothers); Joseph died in Vinton Co and was buried there  

Dickerson, George Riley  32  (1831 - 1916)  He was born in Wabash Co, IN; He married Lucinda Winters in 1852 and earned a living as a Wagon Maker in Vinton Co, OH, in 1860; Mustered in as a Pvt on 5 Aug 62;  Would be appointed Sgt on 1 Apr 64 (Did he skip over the rank of Cpl?  Perhaps, the fact that 2 Cpls and 2 Sgts were held in POW camps--See Note, above--the Capt thought he would make a good choice as a Sgt);  Mustered out 3 Jun 65 at Camp Dennison, OH;  the 1870 Census found George and his family living in Mercer Co, where he was a House Carpenter;  He described himself as a Carpenter and Joiner in Adams Co in 1880; In later years, he opted for a less strenuous job as a Notary;  He died in 1916 in Adams Co and was buried there in the Riverside Cemetery 

 

???Doyle, Francis  36  (1827 - ?)  Born in Ireland, he was living in Columbus, OH by 1850, where he worked as a Brickmaker;  That same year, he married Mary Margaret Ream in Columbus;  He joined the 90th OH on 27 Aug 62 and served his adopted country until 11 May 63, when he was Discharged on a Surgeon's Certificate--I do not know the reason for his disability, nor do I know when he was stricken with it (if it was a wound from Stones River, he might have been hospitalized the whole time his company was at Cripple Creek)--He became a Naturalized American Citizen in 1864;  By 1870, he and his family had moved to Perry Co, IL where he worked as a Coal Miner for the next twenty years or so;  There is a record for a Francis Doyle who  died and was buried in Cleveland, OH on 14 Jan 1911, but a look at the newspaper obituary shows it was a Frances Doyle who died!

 

 

Dozer, Henry W.   20  (1843 - 1913)  Born in either Muskingum or Vinton Co OH to John and Margaret Dozer;  By 1850, the Dozers were living in Muskingum Co;  In 1860, they were living in Vinton Co;   Henry mustered in as a Pvt with the company;  Appointed Cpl on 30 Jun 63;  He was one of the men who would be captured at Chickamauga on 19 Sep 63 (See the lengthy NOTE above);  He mustered out with the company on 13 Jun 65;  He married Nellie M. Oyler in 1865;  Nellie apparently died and he married Martha Ellen Manley in 1872;  I cannot locate the Census records for 1870 and 1880, but I suspect he was living in or around Zanesville;  In 1990, he answers the Veterans' Census from Perry Co, but he is back in Zanesville (Muskingum Co) by 1900;  He recounts the harrowing details of his capture and imprisonment during the War in Harden's 40th Reunion Book in 1902;  Through the years, he usually finds work as a Farmer, Carpenter, or a Coal Miner;  He dies in 1913 in Zanesville and is buried there in the Woodlawn Cemetery

Eagan, William  19  (1843 - 1925)  Born in Vinton Co to Barney and Eleanor Eagan;  He lived at home on the family farm until he mustered in with the company;  Transferred to VRC on 15 Mar 65 and mustered out with them;  He returned home and married Hannah Elizabeth Hartman in 1872;  He was a Farmer in Vinton Co until moving his family to Polk Co, Missouri sometime around 1900;  He continued to be a Farmer until he died in 1925;  He was buried in the Fouts Cemetery in Polk Co, MO

Redfern, Emery Fisk  21  (1842 - 1904)  Hailing from Vinton Co, OH, it is possible that the Redferns were related to their Vinton Co neighbors, the Redfearns;  Most sources show him to be the son of Uriah and Jane Redfern;  He mustered into Co B of the 90 OH as a Sgt on 31 Jul 62, but was reduced to a Pvt on 7 Sep 62;  He would be appointed Cpl on 1 Apr 64;  Mustered out with Company B in 65;  He married Martha Ann Nichols and set about being a Farmer;  In 1870, he began to practice medicine (shadowing a trained Physician?), eventually earning a medical degree from the American Eclectic College of Medicine in Cincinnati in 1879;  For the next 20 years, he was a Physician in Perry, Hocking County;  At the time of the printing of the 40th Reunion Book in 1902, he lived in South Perry, OH;  He died two years later and was buried in the Perry Cemetery

Shepherd, George W.   22  (<1840> - 1919?)   Here is what we know for certain:  George W. Shepherd was 22 when he enlisted into the Company B on 27 Aug 62, making his birthyear probably 1840;  He transferred to the VRC on 30 Nov 64 and mustered out on 14 Jul 65 in Cairo, IL;  Beyond this, I can speculate that he was the George Washington Shepherd who was listed in one of Ancestry's Public Family Trees who was born in OH in 1840, married in AK in 1894, and died in AK 1919;  But, for now, I don't know  

 

Shively, John  25  (1837 - 1909)  Born in Muskingum Co, OH; By 1850, he was living in Vinton Co, where he would spend most of the rest of his life as a Farmer; He married Hellen Ramey in Vinton Co, OH on 7 Aug 1862; Mustered in with the company twenty days later, on 27 Aug 62;  Discharged on Surgeon's Certificate on 6 Aug 63;  I don't know why he received a medical discharge, but I have a hunch it was not something that kept him hospitalized the whole time his company was at Cripple Creek; He did not petition for an Invalid's Pension until 1881;  He was buried in the Locust Grove Cemetery 

Shuster, William S.  19  (1844 - 1924)  Born in Morgan Co, OH;  Mustered in 27 Aug 62;  Mustered out 13 Jun 65;  He was described as being 5' 9" tall with a light complexion, blue eyes, and auburn hair;  His occupation was Farmer;  He married Sarah Elizabeth McGee in IL in 1867;  He and his wife were both active in the GAR;  They moved to NE around 1883;  At the time of the printing of the 40th Reunion Book in 1902, he lived in Shickley, NB;  He died and is buried in Nebraska

Smith, James  28  (1835 - 1918)  The information I have on James Smith is sparse:  He mustered in on 27 Aug 62;  He mustered out on 13 Jun 65;  He filed an Invalid's Pension Petition in 87 and he died in Chillicothe, Ross County, OH, in 1918;  One source shows him buried in Greenlawn Cemetery, but I find no record of him actually being there

Steele, Richard  21  (1842 - 1916)  His name also appears as Steel;  He was born in Muskingum Co to Benedict and Sarah Steele;  He mustered in with Company B on 27 Aug 62;  He was "severely wounded" at Chickamauga on 20 Sep 63;  He would eventually be discharged upon a Surgeon's Certificate on 10 Feb 64  (AG's Report erroneously says 63);  Unlike Samuel Steele in the following bio, Richard's injury did NOT leave him unfit for duty;  In fact, he re-enlisted, joining the 65 OH Co E on 24 Sep 64 and mustering out on 6 May 65;  He married Esther (or Hester) V Parrish in 1867 and settled into the life of a Farmer;  He reported suffering from Lung Disease in the 1890 Veterans' Census;  In 2010, he moved to Columbus, where he was a Night Watchman;  He died in 1916 in Columbus, and was buried in Vinton Co's Ebenezer Cemetery;  While Richard and Samuel Steele are both from Muskingum Co, I can find no obvious relation between them

Steele, Samuel Harvey  <30> (<1832> - 1871)  Near the end of his life, he told the Dayton Soldiers' Home that he was born in Muskingum Co, but the first record he appears in is the 1850 Census for Vinton Co, at which time he was living with Nathan and Ruth Steele--he is 16 and listed after much younger children, which makes me think Nathan and Ruth were an uncle and aunt;  Also, his being 16 would make his birthyear 1834;  In 1857, he married Julia Ann Jadwin--sister of Pvt Benjamin Jadwin, whose bio is above; (AND a woman named Priscilla Jane Steele marries Benjamin Jadwin--I don't think she is a sister of Samuel, but SOME sort of relative to him);  Samuel mustered in with Company B on 27 Aug 62;  Like Richard Steele, he was injured on 20 Sep 63 at Chickamauga--Samuel's injury was a GW to his right arm;  He received a discharge on 31 Aug 64, but was still judged able to serve in a limited way, so was transferred to the VRC on 9 Sep 64 and mustered out with them on 8 May 65; He returned home to his wife and two daughters, but was living apart from them in 1870, occupation listed as an "Invalid Soldier";  A few months later, on 8 Nov 70, he was admitted to the Dayton Soldiers' Home; He died there on 7 Feb 71 and was buried in the Dayton National Cemetery in Grave A, 8, 37

 

 

Tinsley, Mark*  41  (1822 - 1864)  The only information I can find  on a Mark Tinsley (or any other variation of the name) prior to his enlistment is a marriage record for Mark Tinsley and Sarah Dickason in Vinton Co in 1858;  The Ancestry.com Civil War Soldier Records and Profiles says he was 22 at enlistment, which places his birthyear around 1819;  He mustered in with the rest of the company on 27 Aug 62;  He was one of those captured at Chickamauga on 20 Sep 63 (See Note above);  He died 16 Aug 64 at Andersonville Prison of Scorbutus and was buried there in Grave 5552 (Although, there IS a grave for a Mark Tinsley--no dates on the stone--in Tinsley Graveyard #3 in Scottsville, Allen Co, KY.  There is a grave for a Sarah Tinsley, as well, but her date of birth is given as 1858--could it have been 1838?  The 1860 Census for Scottsville lists J. M. Tinsley (aged 40, born in TN), S.A. Tinsley (aged 25, also born in TN), and several young Tinsleys;  There is no Pension record for Mark Tinsley;  If the Scottsville Tinsley Family is our Mark, then the gravestone with no dates might be a cenotaph for the man buried at Andersonville

 

 

Turner, Craven S.  44  (1819 - 1909)  Born in Virginia; Marriage record for Craven and Mary Crow in Hocking Co, OH 1843;  (However, info on his Find-A-Grave page shows his wife's name was Mary Jo Oswald--was this a second wife?);  Living in Vinton Co, OH in 1850;  Mustered in with the company;  He was one of the men from Co B who was captured at Chickamauga on 20 Sep 63--See the Note above for more info;  Was later exchanged and mustered out 13 Jun 65 at Camp Harker, TN;  He returned to his family and moved west: in 1870 and 1880 in Neosho Co, KS, in 1900 in Kay Co, OK;  He was a lifelong Farmer;  He died in 1909 back in KS (Crawford Co) and was buried there in the Walnut Cemetery 

Vincent, Alonzo  24  (1839 - 1927)  He was born in Washington Co, OH to Henry and Elizabeth Vincent; By 1860, the family had moved to Lake Co, OH;  On 23 Apr 61, he enlisted in Co K 18 OVI--a 3-month enlistment;  He returned home after mustering out and was stricken with Typhoid Fever;  When he had recovered his health, he mustered into the 90 OH on 7 Aug 62;  He mustered out with the company on 13 Jun 65;  Returned to Vinton Co and worked as a House Carpenter and a Laborer;  He married Nancy Ellen Conn in 1876 and they had two children--a son and a daughter;  They moved to Morgan Co, OH where Alonzo was a Shoemaker; In 1882, they moved to Wapello, Iowa and lived the life of a Farmer until 1910, when he moved his family to Osceola Co, FL; He became paralyzed in 1919 and was an invalid for the last year of his life; He was buried in the Mt. Peace Cemetery in Osceola Co
