Snyder, Daniel S.  27  (1836 - 1909)  Daniel was born in MD;  I haven't found his father's name, but his mother's name was Hannah;  From 1850 (or before) until his death, he lived in Mercer Co, OH;  He was a Farmer;  Mustered in as a Pvt in Co H  on 26 Aug 62;  Would be appointed Comm Sgt  on 23 Aug 64;  Mustered out on 13 Jul 65;  I am not certain, but I believe he was married three times:  Rachel Vian in 1865; Harriet Lytle in 1869;  Harriet died in 1883, and he married Catherine Vance in 1884;  (I assume that Rachel died sometime before 1869);  He died of Heart Disease in 1909 and was buried in the Tomlinson Cemetery in Mercer Co

 

Sowsley, George   25  (1838 - )   Mustered in on 26 Aug 62;  He would transfer to the VVEC on 16 Jul 64;  He would muster out with them on 26 Sep 65 from Nashville

 

 

 

 

Strait, James A.  18  (1842 - 1933)   He was born in OH, to Henry and Catherine Strait/Streight;  (I believe that William Strait in the next bio is actually James' younger brother, although the AG's Report shows him to be older);  He lived in Perry Co, OH for the first 25  years of his life;  Mustered in as a Pvt with Co H on 26 Aug 62;  Appointed as a Cpl on 28 Feb 65;  He mustered out on 13 Jul  65;  He removed to Missouri around 1868 and was living in Lafayette Co, MO in 1870; The following year, he married Flora Ann Allman in Bates Co, MO--they would spend the rest of their lives as Farmers in Bates Co;  In the 1890 Veterans' Census, he reported he had had no Disabilities Incurred in the Army;  In 1930, he told the Census-Taker he was able to read and write;  He also reported he owned no radio set;  He died in 1933 and was buried in the Mulberry Cemetery in Bates Co    

  

Strait, William Hays  18   (1844 - 1829)   The AG's Report has his age as 22, but family records place his birthyear as 1844;  He was born (I am reasonably sure) in Perry Co to Henry and Catherine Strait, making him the brother of James Strait in the bio above;  He lived in Perry Co for the first two decades of his life;  One military record lists him as being in the 31 OH, Co A, from Sep 61 to Sep 62--meaning he would have been 17 when he mustered in with them and would still have a month with the 31st at the time he mustered into the 90th;  So, was this a different William H. Strait who served in the 31st?;  We know for sure that he mustered into the 90th OH  on 26 Aug 62;  He was reportedly wounded in the left hand--at Chickamauga?;  He also reported being captured and taken to Libby Prison for 29 days;  He mustered out on 13 Jul 65.  He is probably the Willaim Strait who married Mary Jane Petty in Perry Co in 1866;  William and Mary J Strait are Farmers in Howard Co, IN in 1870;  By 1880, they are back in Perry Co as Farmers once more;;  He filed a Petition for an Invalid's Pension in 1880;  By 1889, he is living in Butler Co, KS;  A  woman named Mary J. Strait files for a Widows Pension in 1894--is this a record for that other William and  Mary J. Strait?  (This William served in the Cavalry);   In 1900,they are back in Perry Co, still as Farmers;  In 1910, William is a Widower, still living in Perry Co;  In 1920, what I believe to be my William is an Inmate at the IN Asylum for the Insane in Athens, IN--the result of PTSD or alcoholism, perhaps;  Finally, William dies of Arterio-sclerosis (in Perry Co?) and is buried there in the  Ironpoint Cemetery   

 

???Tracy, Abraham   24  (1836 - 1906)  He was born in Baltimore, MD to Lewis and Nancy Tracy;  He lived in Perry Co, OH virtually his whole life;  Married Martha Ann Frazier in Perry Co in 1860;  Mustered in with the 90th OH on 26 Aug 62;  Discharged on 3 Mar 63 on a Surgeon's Certificate from Nashville;  Was he ever at Cripple Creek?  Most Census Reports see him working as a Laborer/Day Laborer, with the exception of 1900, in which he was a Coal Miner;  He died of Pneumonia in 1906 and was buried in the Iliff Cemetery in Perry Co 

 

 

Van Horn, Samuel*  21  (1842 - 1864)  Name occasionally appears as Vanhorn or Vanhorne;  He was born in OH and lived in Perry Co, OH in 1850 and 1860 with a couple named Wilson;  He was not married in the 1860 Census;  Mustered into the 90th OH on 26 Aug 62;  Died 11 Jan 64 in a General Hospital No 3 in Vicksburg, Miss--his cause of death was Chronic Diarrhea;  He is buried in the Vicksburg National Cemetery, but there is some confusion over which grave he rests in--most sources say Grave I - 7571, but his regiment is given as 11 Iowa Co C;  One document makes note of a soldier named Christ Jedman of Co C of the 16th Iowa, who died on 4 Mar 1864 and is buried in Grave I - 7561;   Samuel and Crist may have died 3 months apart, but they are unwittingly linked in death;  There was a Widow's Pension Petition filed by Samuel's widow, named Martha

--I have been unable to find her last name or information on when and  where she and Samuel were married

 

 

Vansickle, James Reuben  21  (1841-1921)  Apparently went by his middle name, since many records refer to him as Reuben or J. Reuben Vansickle;  Born to Stephen and Eliza Vansickle in Perry Co, OH--he lived virtually all of his life as a Farmer in Perry Co; Was he related to Stephen Vansickle in the next bio;  Mustered in and out of the 90th OH with Co H;  Returned home and married Deborah (Debby) A. Wilson in 1866;  He filed for an Invalid's Pension in 1888;  He died in 1921 of Apoplexy and was buried in the Hopewell Cemetery in Perry Co  

???Vansickle, Stephen  25  (1838 - )  Was he related to James Reuben in the previous bio?;  Received a Medical discharge from Nashville on 21 Apr 63;  Was he actually at Cripple Creek?

???Virts, Richard Henry   24  (1839 - 1923)  Name given in AG's Report as Vertz, but family record and tombstone say Virts;  Born in Loudoun Co, VA to Jacob and Pleasant Ann (James) Virts;  In 1860, he is living with another Virts family--perhaps an uncle--along with a Samuel Fry;  Richard, according to his obit, left his native VA "with considerable risk" to avoid serving in the Confederacy and having to take up arms against the Union--I don't know how he came to be in Perry Co, OH;   Mustered into the 90th OH on 26 Aug 62;  Discharged on a Surgeon's Certificate on 10 Feb 63 from Camp Dennison, OH--was he injured at Stones River?  If so, was he ever at Cripple Creek?;  Married Mary Amanda Baker in Muskingum Co, OH in 1864;  He was a Farmer in Perry Co in 1870;  He and Mary and their young family removed to DeWitt Co, IL by 1880, but they eventually settled in Montgomery Co, IN;  He and Mary died there and are buried in the Oak Hill Cemetery in Crawfordsville, IN

 

 

 

 

 

Walker, Robert *  20  (1843 - 1864)   Born in Perry Co, OH to Robert and Patience Walker;  The Walkers were Farmers in Perry Co, OH in 1850 and 1860;  Young Robert mustered into the 90th OH on 26 Aug 62;  He was one of the main sources of information I used to create my website on Cripple Creek;  He was wounded at The Battle of Nashville on 15 Dec 64 and died 17 Dec 1864 in a Nashville Hospital;  He was buried in the Nashville National Cemetery

 

 

Walker, William Henry   21   (1841 - 1923)   He was born in Perry Co, OH to Joseph and Catherine Walker;  He married Mariah Ann Russell in 1862, before being mustered into the 90th OH on 26 Aug 62;  Received a Surgical Discharge 3 Mar 63 from Louisville;  He went from hospital (in Nashville?) to Cripple Creek, then to Louisville;  He returned to Perry Co and worked as a Merchant and as a Shoemaker;  He died in 1923 of Senility and is buried in Somerset, OH in the Holy Trinity Cemetery;  Was he a distant cousin to Robert Walker in the bio above?
