Information at Find a Grave says that the Alexander ANDERSON, is buried at First Methodist Cem, Lewistown, Mifflin Co PA.  We think that the stone was misread.  The date of death should be 1900 and the Regiment should be 120th OVI.  As you can see, the stone is difficult to read.

Pension Card:  Alexander ANDERSON alias John S. FORTNEY, Co D 120th OH Inf.  Invalid filed 23 apr 1888, Application 651637, Certificate 481664, in PA. Widow Annie E. ANDERSON.  Widow applied 13 Apr 1900, Application 717001, Certificate 517726, in PA.    

Thanks to Bryan for staightening me out on the identity of this soldier.  
Alexander enlisted under the name of John S. Fortney by reason of having a difficulty with a girl as stated in his pension records.
 Alexander ANDERSON possibly picked this Wayne County OH man's name because he [Alexander] was working in Wayne County when he joined the 120th.

Excerpts from pension papers sent by Bryan:  

"Alex Anderson and I were raised together in Mifflin Co Pa near McVeytown.  He helped his father on the farm and at the station at Anderson in said Co.  He was a healthy hearty boy when he enlisted, but he had a spell of lung fever when he was 17 years of age.....he fully recovered in about two weeks."  

"My maiden name was Annie E.GRO.  He [Alexander Anderson] took the name John S. Fortney because a girl named Elizabeth Greenawalt swore a child on him and he had it to pay for.  She married Wm Yoder and they live near Anderson , Mifflin Co Pa.  The child Alice married a man named Stainer, Jeff Stainer, I think, and theylive near Anderson, Mifflin Co Pa."

"My husband came home from the army in June or July 1865, and within four weeks thereafter we went to housekeeping at Anderson Station Mifflin Co PA.  We lived there one year and he hauled wood.  From there we moved to within one mile of McVeytown, and we lived there six months.  My husband hauled stone there out of a quarry.  We then moved onto a farm belonging to Wm Wilson, now dead, four miles above McVeyton, and my husband farmed.  After a year we moved on to a farm one mile from Mattawana Station, PA, and farmed there for five years for Mickael Yoder who I think is still living.  We then sold out and my hsuband worked on the railroad as a trackman under Sam Auckerman wo is now dead.  While at this work we lived for 11 months in the fi**t house  ***  **scent? to keeping house in at Anderson Station Pa.  We then moved across the river into Little? Valley, Mifflin Co Pa. (P.O. Strodes? Mill), where we lived 10 or 11 years, and farmed for Lloyd Williams of Baltimore Md.  I don't know whether he is living.  We then moved to Lewistown Junction, a mile from Lewistown, Mifflin Co Pa and farmed there for 2? years for Mrs. Morrison, who is still living.  From Leistown Junction we came to Altoona April 1 1892 and have lived here or in this vicinity ever since, and my husband has been at work in the blacksmith shops of the Pa R.R. Co."

"When my husband came home from the army he came right from prison, was very weak, and was just a shadow...."

Obituary
John T. Clark was born May 25th 1844 and departed this life April 5, 1922 at the age of 77 years, 10 months and ten days.
  He was one of a family of four, two brothers and one sister having preceded him to the better world.  At the age of seventeen years he enlisted in the 120th O.V.I., in which capacity he served until the close of the war in 1865.  He was united in marriage to Miss Ollvan [see name above] Crummel September 7, 1865.  To this union were born five girls and two boys, one daughter dying in infancy, two daughters, Mrs. Frank Billard, and Mrs. John Darr of Wooster have died in recent years.  The mother and wife preceded him in death some four and one half years ago.  Mr. Clark is survived by two sons and two daughters, Mrs. Frank Read of West Salem, Mrs. T.J. Troutman of Orrville; Mr. Lewis Clark and Mr. Perry Clark of Applecreek and the following grand children:  Mr. Charles Read and Mr. Lewis Read of West Salem and Mr. Fred Read of Wooster, Miss Lila Davidson of Massillon, Miss Hazel Davidson of Canal Fulton, Mrs. Ralph Musselman of Wooster, Mr. Lester Davidson, of Applecreek, Miss Maxine Billard of Wooster, Misses Fay and Betla {?}Darr of Wooster and Richard Thomas Clark and Lela May Clark of Applecreek, and one great grand son Kenneth Neal Musselman of Wooster. Mr. Clark took and cared for the one grand son, Lester, since he was six years old.
  Mr. Clark was one of the early members of the M.E. church of which he was a faithful attendant as long as his health would permit.  He was a kind and loving father and a man who had the respect of all who knew him.
Having been in fairly good health, his sudden departure was quite a shock to the community.

James, Janet and their son Andrew are on one stone and there is an older stone for Andrew.

Father James was supposedly in the Mexican War, Army, Co E, 3rd Regiment Ohio Volunteer Infantry [3rd Regiment of Ohio Volunteers, for 12 mouths; June 1846 – June 1847. Colonel Samuel R. Curtis (former 2nd Lieutenant, 7th U.S. Infantry and Adj.

Aged Resident Passes Away
  Mr. Peter Eckard, aged 75 years and seven months, died at his home here Tuesday morning of cancer of the stomach after a lingering illness; the past six weeks however he was confined to the house and his bed.
  Mr. Eckard was an old and well known resident of Dalton and vicinity, coming to Dalton in the early sixties, working at the shoemaking trade.  In 1873 he opened the first exclusive shoe store in Dalton, remaining in business about six years, selling out to A.W.

Since which time he has lived in Dalton.
   Mr. Eckard was a veteran of the Civil War, enlisting from this place Aug. 21, 1862 in Co. D of the 120th Ohio and served throughout the war.  His regiment participated in a number of battles among which was the siege of Vicksburg.  He was taken prisoner by the confederates when the U. S. transport "City Belle" was captured enroute up the Red River May 3, 1864.  Later he was exchanged and transferred to the 114th Ohio. [Note from the webmaster: The Roster book does not record his being captured at Snaggy Point and he is not on the list of prisoners that is available at Camp Ford, Texas, where those prisoners were held.]
  He is survived by a widow, four sons, Harvey, of this place, Elmer, of Haysville, Pa.; Chester, of Sewickly, Pa.; Howard, Glenfield, Pa.; three daughters, Mrs. Harry Dague, of Akron, Mrs. Wm. Wenger, Massillon, and Mrs. Geo Cully of this place.

Hardesty's Historical and Geographical Encyclopedia. [Wayne County Ohio version] published in 1885, page496, Sugar Creek  Twp section:
Thomas Reed Erwin was a boy of seventeen years of age when the first gun of the civil war was fired, and when he passed his 18th birthday he enlisted in the cause of good government; when he was twenty years and twenty -five days old he died in its defense.  He was enrolled in Company D, 120th Ohio Volunteer Infantry, May 15, 1862, at Dalton, Wayne county, and was mustered in at Camp Mansfield in September following.  He was never sick of absent from duty from his enlistment to his death, sharing the hardships his regiment underwent in the campaigns under Sherman and under Grant against Vicksburg, and in the battles of the campaigns in which his regiment participated, including Chickasaw Bayou, Arkansas Post, Thompsons Hill, Raymond, Black River Bridge, the forty-seven day siege of Vicksburg.  Of his action in one of the assaults on Vicksburg he wrote home to his mother, "I fired so rapidly my gun got so hot I had to lay it down and take another."  The last letter received from him by the loving home circle was addressed to a sister, and contained some pictures he had had taken for them all, and of which he said: "Look at them all you please."  This letter dated April 23, 1864, said: "We are going to re-inforce Banks on Red River."  Eleven days after it was written he was on Red river, in the City Belle, when it was disabled off Snaggy Point, and he was shot through the thigh, removed to a shanty near the river, where he bled to death, and was buried with several companions under the alien sod.  This young patriot was born in Sugar Creek township, Wayne county, April 8, 1844, and he left to mourn their loss in his death, a loving father and mother, and four brothers, five sisters.  His father, Cunningham Erwin, was born October 29, 1817, and died June 3, 1874, of liver complaint.  He seemed always to mourn the son he had lost and never was the same after his death.  The mother of Thomas Reed Erwin, for whom this sketch is compiled, was Mary Ann Reed before her marriage, born December 6, 1824.  She lives on the family farm in Sugar Creek township, one married son living with her, and two sons in Baughman township.  Four of her daughters are married, and living in Wayne county, and the youngest is still with her.  Her post office address is Dalton.

John and Elizabeth (France) Gaut are his parents, and he was born in Wayne township, Wayne county, October 26, 1828.  He was first married to Rebecca N. Downing.  She was born in Wooster, July 7, 1828; they were married October 10, 1854, and she died May 24, 1864, having been the mother of two children:  Mary D., born November 8, 1855; Stephen H., born January 6, 1858, died August 27th following.  In Wayne County, March 19, 1866, Benjamin F.

    Hardesty's Historical and Geographical Encyclopedia. [Wayne County Ohio version] published in 1885, page 506, Green Twp section:
    Henry Hartman joined the Union army at Mansfield, Oct 17, 1862, Company D, 120th Ohio Volunteer Infantry, which in service was assigned 1st brigade, 2d division, 13th army corps.  He was a participant in the action of this gallant regiment in the battles of Chickasaw Bayou, and Arkansas Post.  In the latter battle the 120th was the first regiment to enter the rebel fort, and their colors the first to wave over the rebel ramparts.  Owing to the efficient service of the Foster battery, which disabled the rifled cannon which commanded the field, and also that of the gunboat Benton, disabling the cannon commanding the river, this entrance was effected with but small loss of life.  When the fort was in the hands of the Union soldiers, having no other ammunition, they cut the railroad iron which guarded the outside of the fort and shot into the ranks of the foe and it proved a more destructive weapon than the shell.  At this place, Mr. Hartman narrowly escaped with his life.  A minieball struck just in front of where he lay, scattering dirt all over him, and filling his eyes with mud.  After this engagement he was next on the field at Youngs Point, and later, engaged in shelling the forts about Grand Gulf.  In the rear of Vicksburg, the regiment was twice employed in charging the works, and the second time some of the men succeeded in gaining the breastworks.  A part of the time the Wisconsin regiment that had the eagle "Old Abe" was with them in the charge. [
    Eau Claire Eagles Company C 8th regiment of Wisconsin]  After the fall of Vicksburg, Mr. Hartman was sent to take part in the advance on Jackson, Mississippi.  At this place he became quite sick, and was sent to the hospital at New Orleans.  He rejoined the regiment before the Red River expedition, and was taken prisoner at Snaggy Point, and with many of his company, and a large number of prisoners from many different States, he endured the dreadful hardships of Camp Ford, Texas.  The dreadful privations and inhumane cruelty practiced upon these brave men, are fully recounted in another part  of this Encyclopedia.  The ingenuity displayed by some of the men was truly wonderful.  With only two axes, the winter quarters of this entire company were constructed.  One of the men made a lathe, and from clay found within the borders of the prison, made different articles of pottery.  Another formed a "gigsaw" from an old hoop skirt and began the manufacture of combs.  Another engaged in making sweet potato pies, which were sold to the Confederates.  As they had neither sugar or salt, and were limited in all their resources, it is hard to imagine how these pies were made.   These prisoners were dismissed at the close of the war, reached Ohio, and received their discharge from the government at Columbus, July 7, 1865.  The length of Mr. Hartman's army life was two years, eight months and twenty days.  He is the son of Michael and Catharine (Christman) Hartman, and was born October 16, 1841.  At Mt. Eaton, Ohio, September 1, 1871, Susan Witwer became his wife.  She was the daughter of Michael and Magdalena (Winger) Witwer, and was born April 16, 1844.  One son has been given Mr. and Mrs. Hartman, DeGlenn, born August 9, 1874.  A brother of Mrs. Hartman, Henry Witwer, was a member of Company H, 120th Ohio Volunteer Infantry, and died in the hospital at Benton Barracks, St. Louis, Missouri, July 25, 1863.  Mr. Hartman is engaged as a dry goods merchant at Orrville, Ohio.

Elijah Garrison Keister -- was one of Wayne county's volunteers to the 120th Ohio Infantry, mustering into Company D of that regiment at Camp Mansfield, October 17, 1862.  He served in the ranks until after the battles of Chickasaw Bayou and Arkansas Post, and on return to the Mississippi, at Youngs Point, he was detailed teamster, in which capacity he served till the regiment reported at New Orleans, previous to the Red River campaign.  Through the advance on Vicksburg and its siege he was hauling munitions, mail, and provisions, and was busy  and efficient in keeping his company supplied with these necessities.  While the army lay at Millikens Bend he was detailed transport to the boats, then was ordered on the boat with wagon and six mules, and taken one hundred and fifty miles up the river to James Landing, where he helped to load several thousand bales of cotton.  At Yazoo river he helped to load a pontoon bridge under heavy fire from the enemy.  On the capture of the City Belle, at Snaggy Point, Mr. Keister was one of the unfortunates.  He jumped ashore, and taking in the situation, started to run, throwing his gun and cartridge box into the river first.  But he was captured, and sent via Alexandria to Shreveport, where he was lodged in the jail for a time, then marched to Camp Ford, Texas, where for thirteen months he never had enough to eat a single day, and was subjected to the other privations we have elsewhere described.
[See the history page on this site.] He has in his possession still a specimen of the roughly ground meal furnished them for food.  After he was discharged he marched to Shreveport, went by boat to New Orleans, thence by St. Louis and Cincinnati to Columbus, where he was discharged from the service July 9, 1865.  He was born in Salt Creek township, Wayne county August 22, 1834, son of Adam and Barbara (Shuman) Keister, and was married in East Union township, October 2, 1856.  His wife is Sarah, daughter of Joseph and Harriet (Thompson) Martin, born in Salt Creek township, February 18, 1839.  They have an only son, Joseph Martin [KEISTER]. born December 21, 1858, living at home.  Mrs. Keister lost two brothers in the service, Joseph, supposed to have been killed by Indians in the West; Elias D. belonged to Co. E, 169th O.N.G., died at Fort Ethan Allen, July 3, 1864.  Farming is Mr. Keister's occupation, and his postoffice address is Wooster.

I have been unsuccessful in finding Charles in earlier census records.  There is one with the right age, born in OH who is a soldier in the US Army in Santa Fe, Santa Fe Co, New Mexico in 1880 Census, Dwelling 611, Family 675.  His parents were born in OH. He is single, age 35.  But he has the middle initial E.  

So what is with his age in the following census record and death record?  We know that he could not have been born in those years.  Because of the Pension card, we can tell that the 1910 Census is probably the correct man.

Registers of Deaths of Volunteers, 1861-1865:  James McCLANE, Corporal, Co D 120th OH Inf, died 23 May at Regimental Hospital.  Cause: gun shot wound.   Regimental Surgeon, Byron Stanton.  [I am wondering if some of these registrations came from reports given later to the Surgeon and which he recorded while in camp at other places.  Other reports, for example Marcus M Spiegel, were done the same way.  Spiegle was reported to have died at Wilson's Plantation in Louisiana in his pension papers and near Alexandria LA in the Ohio Roster, but his Register of Death record, also signed by Stanton, said he died at Kingston GA.  Kingston GA is probably where Stanton was when he registered Spiegle's death, but Spiegle wasn't there.  Sergt Joseph SEIBERT, Co C, actually was killed near Snaggy Point LA, but Stanton registered his death as happening near Kingston GA.] So, because some wounded from Snaggy Point were taken to Cheneyville for treatment, I believe that is where James McClain actually died.  And those men were eventually buried at Alexandria.

Swiggett was a captain in Co B, 36th IA.  He had the following bio in his book.  In the book he told the story of his time in the Civil War which included his escape from Camp Ford, Texas, along with Captain Benjamin Miller of Co D 120th OVI and Captain Joseph Rummel of Co B 120th OVI.]

Page 236:
"Captain B. F. Miller.   B. F. Miller was born in Mount Pleasant, Westmoreland county, Pennsylvania, on October 2, 1832, of native parents, but of English and Scotch descent, his father being Benjamin Miller, and his mother's maiden name being Martha Hemphill.  His business was farming until four years before the war, when he went west, spending two years of the four in the Rocky Mountains.
  "Coming east again, he enlisted at Wooster, Ohio, in Company D of the 120th Ohio Infantry, and served as private, sergeant, first lieutenant and captain.  He was captured on May 3, 1864, at Shaggy [sic] Point, on the Red River, in Louisiana, and was imprisoned at Camp Ford, Texas, except during the attempt to escape, until exchanged on June 1, 1865.  He as mustered out at Columbus, Ohio, on June 30, 1865.  
  "On September 26, 1865, he married Julia A., sister of L. S. Baumgardner, of Toledo, Ohio, and farmed in that State until about three years ago, when rheumatic afflictions caused his cessation of active work.  He then moved to Wooster, Ohio, where he now lives with his family, having but one child, a daughter.  It is unnecessary to say more of Captain Miller, as he is mentioned frequently elsewhere [in the book].  His photograph is inserted opposite page 167." 
See Photo.  

In the same book, about the end of their journey of escape, Swiggett wrote:  

Page 173: "....we walked right into a picket post of nine men, or, rather, right into plain view of them, they being fifty yards distant."  [That was the beginning of the end of their journey.]
Page 176: "After our hosts had finished their supper we started for Arkadelphia [in Arkansas]......"   "This was our twenty-first night out since leaving the stockade, and we were not 275 miles from Tyler, Texas, and fifty miles from Little Rock-----'so near and yet so far.' "  [They were eventually discovered to be Federals after a valiant effort to lie their way out of it,  and were made prisoners. They were then taken down to Washington, AR, then to Magnolia AR, and then to Shreveport, LA.  They were kept at Four Miles Springs for six weeks.  Page 207: Swiggett was then sent back to Tyler, Texas, but Rummel was not sent with him because he was ill.  Swiggett does not mention Miller at this point.]

CAPTAIN BENJAMIN F. MILLER BIO: Commemorative Biographical Record Wayne and Holmes Ohio Beers 1889 p 536 - 537 
Captain Benjamin F. Miller, son of Benjamin and Martha (Hemphill) Miller, natives of Pennsylvania, was born October 2, 1832, at Mount Pleasant, Westmoreland Co., Penn. John Miller, the grandfather of Benjamin F., came to Wayne County, Ohio, about 1825, and located in Wayne Township, where he was engaged in farming. He died there in 1846. Benjamin Miller, father of Benjamin F., and the eldest of John's family, was born in Juniata County, Penn., in 1799. He remained with his parents until eighteen years of age, when he went to Westmoreland County, Penn., and here he met the lady whom he married. After this event they first located at Stewart's Station in the same county. In 1846 they came to Wayne County, and took up their residence in Wayne Township for about one year, when they purchased a farm in Chester Township, same county. In 1863 they retired from the farm, and moved into Wooster, where they spent the remainder of their lives. Mr. Miller was an active member of the Whig, and afterward of the Republican, party, and filled several township offices in Chester Township. They died in 1880 and 1879, respectively, prominent members of the Associate Reformed Church. They reared a family of nine children, all of whom are living except Margaret, who married John Cherry, and died in Iowa. Those living are Elizabeth, wife of David B. Funk, of Wooster, Ohio; Nancy, wife of John Long, also of Wooster; John, in Chester Township; Sarah Ann, wife of Thomas Van Sweergin, of Congress Township, Wayne County; Mary, a maiden lady, also in Wooster; Benjamin F., our subject; Derinda, a maiden lady, in Wooster, and Lucinda, wife of Alex Postleweight, in Orrville.

The subject of this sketch came to Wayne County with his parents in 1846, and was reared on the farm, receiving his education at the township schools. In 1848 he proceeded overland to the rocky Mountains and California, spending four years in that section. In August, 1862, he enlisted in company D, One Hundred and Twentieth Ohio Volunteer Infantry, and was promoted to fifth sergeant, then to first lieutenant, and finally to captain of his company. He was captured at Snaggy Point, La., on the Red River steamer "Belle, " and confined at Camp Ford, near Tyler, in Northeast Texas, for thirteen months. He and some fellow prisoners escaped in December, and reached the northern lines in March, having traveled between 600 and 700 miles. He then served his country until his honorable discharge at Columbus, Ohio, June 30, 1865. After the close of the war Capt. Miller returned to farming and lumbering, and in 1874 he purchased his present farm. September 28, 1865, he married Miss Julia A. Baumgardner, daughter of Peter Baumgardner, of Wayne Township, and they have one child, Ora Eveline, living at home. Capt. Miller votes the Republican ticket, and although living in a Democratic township has held various offices, having served as school director for twelve years. He is a member of Givens Post, No. 133, G. A. R., of Wooster, and is a prominent member of the Wooster Presbyterian Church, having served as one of its trustees for six years.

This is a closeup of the stone by which is the GAR flag holder for Valentine.  It looks to me like the stone is for Noah MOFFITT, Died Nov 1850.  This could be his brother.

From the great great grand niece of Valentine MOFFITT, Fahye Graber:
Fahye agrees that the tombstone next to the GAR holder has the name Noah MOFFITT.  Valentine had both a brother and an uncle named Noah.  
Valentines nephew, Nathan, son of William, served in Co. I   76th OVI. 
So two of his brothers were Noah and William.
Valentine had four/five sons who served in the Civil War.

Letter written to Mrs. Henry Jennings, sister of James Patrick, Co D, 120th OVI.  The letter was written by Capt. G. P. Emrich.

"Arkansas Post, on the Arkansas River, 50 miles above its mouth, on board the steamer Jess. K. Bell, Jan. 12, 1863.
Dear Madam - It is under a deep sense of feeling that the present circumstances are such as compel me to record upon this sheet which was enclosed with yours dated the 27th ult., and this day received; also containing a postage stamp and envelope to carry back and be the winding sheet of the intelligence of the lamented death of your dear brother, James Patrick.  He died this day at half-past 6 o'clock P. M., about two hours after the receipt of your letter.  His disease was pronounced by his physician Typhoid fever and measles.  I had him furnished with the best medical treatment that circumstances would admit, and also well attended by nurses.  I had furnished him with a good bed in a state room, in the cabin of the boat.  He having become insensible before the receipt of your letter, consequently it could not be recognized by him.  I therefore took upon myself to open and read your kind favor.  And I feel sorry to record in answer the sad intelligence of the death of a dear brother.  but his is the course of nature, and the Lord's will be done.  I sympathize with you in this affliction, hoping you may bear it with a Christian spirit, and that your prayers may ascend to heaven in behalf of the balance of the company and officers, of which your brother was a worthy member, two of which have already gone before him.  
   "We expect to proceed to-morrow and place his remains beneath the sod, on the right bank of the Arkansas River, called the Arkansas Post, along side of three of the brave boys of the 120th regiment, already buried there, having fallen in the battle here yesterday, of which you have no account yet.  We had a very successful battle with the enemy at this place yesterday.  We took their fortifications, and a large amount of commissary stores, several hundred head of horses and mules, and between 5000 and 6000 prisoners, with all their arms, ammunition, &c.  If it were possible, I would be glad to send the remains of your brother to your parents, but it cannot be done now, but we will mark his grave in a conspicuous manner, so that it may be found hereafter.  The particulars of our battle yesterday, I cannot give at this time, as I am very busy, and surrounded with confusion.  We had three killed in the 120th.  Serene Wells, of Wooster, is among the killed.  But one, of our company was wounded, slightly in the ankle.  Our loss in killed, is small, perhaps will not exceed 25, while that of the enemy is over one hundred.  You will hear the particulars more fully hereafter.  Accompanied herewith, I send a package to you, containing the scrap-book, likenesses, pocket-book purse with one dime of money in it, a number of letters, pan knife, &c, belonging to James, hoping all will reach you in safety.  I hope to hear from you as soon as you receive this.  Direct to Memphis, Tenn., to follow regiment. - You will please immediately hand this note to the parents of James Patrick.
Your humble servant, G. P. Emrich, Captain, 120th Regiment O.V.I."

Hardesty's Historical and Geographical Encyclopedia. [Wayne County Ohio version] published in 1885, page 500, Chester Twp section:
William Henry Piper was 20 years of age when he offered his services to his country, and nine months later he sealed his devotion with his life.  He enlisted at Mansfield, Richland county, September, 1862, and on the 17th of October following he was enrolled a member of Company D, 120th Ohio Volunteer Infantry.  The regiment was hurried into service, and assigned to the 3d brigade, 9th division, 13th army corps, in the left wing of the Army of the Tennessee, under General Sherman.  It saw a long and brilliant series of engagements, but Mr. Piper's share included only the battles of Chickasaw Bayou and Arkansas Post.  In these he participated with the courage of a veteran soldier.  In the vigor of his young manhood he was one of those early stricken by the scourge of camp life, chronic diarrhea, by which he was unfitted for service.  He was ordered home, but entered the hospital at St. Louis, in the spring of 1863, hoping to gain some strength there.  Growing steadily worse, and longing to die at home, and with his kindred, he resumed his journey northward, reached his native State, and died at Columbus, on the 28th of June, 1863.  Jacob and Catherine (Thomas) Piper were his parents, and he was born in July, 1842.  His father is now a farmer near New Pittsburg, and for him this sketch has been prepared.

History of Wayne County Ohio, published in 1910 by B.E. Bowen and Co.
CAPT. WESLEY WELLS SPEAR. What greater badge of honor could be stowed upon a man than to allude to him as one of the "boys in blue," who readily sacrificed the pleasures of home and business opportunities to do what he could in saving the honor of the old flag? One of this brave number is Capt. Wesley W. Spear, an interesting and deserving citizen of Wooster, Wayne county, who was born in that city December 28,1835, the son of William Spear, who was born near Shippingberg, Pennsylvania, in 1803, and who came to Wayne county about 1827. He was a cabinetmaker by trade, and he located in Wooster where he established a shop and led a very active life here until his death, in 1890, at the advanced age of eighty-seven years. He was an honest, hardworking and highly respected man. He married Malinda Wells a native of York county, Pennsylvania. Her father conducted a whip factory at Wellsville, that county, and the town derived its name from the family. Mrs. Spear was born in 1808 and died the same year as her husband, 1890--in fact only four days after her husband passed away. To them seven children were born, four of whom lived to maturity, Wesley W., of this review, being a twin brother of William Fletcher, who died about five years ago, Caroline Spear, and Olive, widow of Rev. James Mendenhall, both of whom reside in Arkansas, are the other children. Captain Spear has always made Wooster his home, although he has traveled from the Atlantic to the Pacific. On August 6, 1862, he enlisted in Company D, One Hundred and Twentieth Regiment Ohio Volunteer Infantry, and very faithfully served for a period of three years. He was mustered in at Camp Mansfield, Ohio, as a private, and he proved to be a very capable soldier from the first, having been commissioned a second lieutenant and a few days later was made first lieutenant. He had a varied and interesting experience during the service, taking part in many battles and engagements, among them being the battle of Chickasaw Bayou, Arkansas Post, Thompson's Hill, Champion's Hill and the siege of Vicksburg, under General Sherman. He was wounded at Jackson, Mississippi, July 12, 1863, having been shot in the right groin with a minie ball. This brought him home on a furlough, but, recovering, he later rejoined his regiment in western Louisiana, where the brigade was divided and Mr. Spear was stationed on Colonel Shelton's staff, doing staff duty that winter at Peackamon, Louisiana. Again in active service, he was with his company going up Red river when the boat which was transporting them was fired on and captured, their colonel and about one-half of the company killed or captured. This necessitated consolidation with the One Hundred and fourteenth Ohio Regiment, and Mr. Spear was made captain and given command of Company H, of that regiment. As captain of that company he was in the siege of Fort Blakeley at Mobile, also Spanish Fort there. Near the close of the war Captain Spear was transferred to the Forty-eighth Regiment, Ohio Volunteers, and after a very eventful career he was mustered out of service at Houston, Texas, October 17, 1865, after which he returned to Wooster, and, with his father, engaged in the cabinetmaking and undertaking business. After the war his eyesight began to fail gradually, and in 1885 he became totally blind, and he has since lived in quiet retirement from the world. Captain Spear was married in 1858 [incorrect] to Anna M. Watt, who was born in north Ireland and came to Philadelphia when five years of age with her father, who went into the produce business there, later removing to Wooster, Ohio, and continued the same line of business here for several years. Of the seven children born to the Captain and wife, only two survive, namely: Charles Wesley Spear, of Northampton, Massachusetts, and Jesse Watt Spear, a conductor on the Pennsylvania railroad at Crestline, Ohio. Captain Spear lives on West Liberty street in the home he purchased in 1867. He belongs to the Grand Army of the Republic, being a charter member of Given Post. Notwithstanding his affliction, Captain Spear is a cheerful, genial and interesting man to talk to, who enjoys life, conscious of the fact that he has performed his duty well and greater rewards await him than his fellow-men have ever bestowed. A man of good health, of snowy hair and beard, he is a picturesque character and is greatly admired by all who know him.

Capt. Spear A Resident Here Over 84 Years
 The death Tuesday afternoon of Capt. Wesley W. Spear at the family home on West Liberty street removed from the city's activity one of the oldest business men in Wayne county.  Mr. Spear was born in Wooster, spent his life here, was an active business man for many years and enjoyed the quiet of a retired life for a few years before his death.
 For many years Mr. Spear conducted a furniture store on West Liberty street and was one of the city's funeral directors.  He conducted his business in the rooms now occupied by Bevington and Halteman.
 Mr. Spear was born December 28, 1835, and died November 30, 1920, having reached the age of 84 years, 11 months and 2 days.  His last illness was of two weeks duration.  He suffered a slight stroke of paralysis and failed rapidly until his spirit took flight from earthly troubles and sorrow.  He was a son of William Spear.  In August 1862 he enlisted in Company D 120th regiment O.V.I. and before the close of the war had risen to the rank of captain.  After the war Capt. Spear's eyesight began to fail and in 1885 he became totally blind, being compelled to give up active business.
Capt. Spear was married in 1858 to Anna M. Watt.  Of the seven children born to the union only one, Charles W. Spear of Northampton, Mass., survives.  Mrs. Spear died November 18, 1918 and one son Jesse Spear died recently.  Capt.

Death of John Straher

The following letter from Capt. Emrich to Mrs. Straher, conveys the sad intelligence of her husband’s death.

        Headquarter Army of Mississippi,}

        Feb. 14, 1863 }

        Mrs. Sarah Straher – Dear Madame:  It is under a deep sense of feeling I am thus compelled to convey to you the sad and painful intelligence of the death of your husband, John Straher.  I this day received official notice from St. Louis, Mo., that he died on the 4th inst. of musket shot wound in the ankle.  His wound was not considered dangerous when he was taken off the field.  But thus it is – man is like the grass that is cut down and wilted in an hour.  I can deeply sympathize with you in your deep and sore bereavement, hoping that you may bear up under it with a Christian spirit, yielding submissively to Him that holds us as it were in the palms of his hand and doeth all things well.  He was a faithful, honest and true soldier, and laid down his life honorably in the defense of his country.  Thus we have lost another true patriot and good and faithful citizen and neighbor, and our company of which he was a member deeply lament his loss.

        He was wounded at the battle of Arkansas Post, on the 11th of January 1863.  The next day he was put on board a steamboat along with many others that were wounded in the same battle, and started up the river.  I never was informed where they taken him nor heard from him until I received official notice from the St. Louis Hospital of his death, which took me very much by surprise. I mentioned it in two of my letters I wrote after it happened.  Whether they were received or not I do not know.  I must close, hoping this may reach and find you well. Yours truly,

        G. P. Emrick

Sudden Death of John Winkler
The sudden death of John Winkler, of Overton, Tuesday morning caused universal sadness among neighbors and acquaintances of the aged war veteran.
  Mr. Winkler, whose health had not been of the best in recent years, was not thought to be in a serious condition at the time of death.  He had arisen as usual to start the fire in the stoves Tuesday morning.
  After performing his duties he sat down in a rocking chair and when Mrs. Winkler came into the room, she noticed that her husband was rubbing his hands, yet thought nothing of it, as it was his custom.
  The wife remarked something about the nice morning and Mr. Winkler responded in the affirmative.  Immediately his head dropped to one side and Mrs. Winkler ran to him chaffing his hands and face, but to no avail.  He made one gasp and passed away.  Mr. Winkler was aged about 70 years, and besides the wife, one daughter and three sons survive to mourn the departure of a good father and husband.
  They are Thomas Winkler, Canaan; William Winkler, Canal Dover; Charles at home, and Mrs. Effie Hartman, northwest of Wooster.
  Mr. Winkler was a member of Co. D, 120th Regiment, O.V.I., and enlisted in Wooster where he is widely known.

Extra information gathered for a WINKLER researcher:
1850 Census
----- page 582
Fanny Winkler, age 70, born in VA....$5000 in land value  [This would be Jacob's mother.  If George below is Fanny's son, then Fanny's age here is wrong.  He is almost 60.  Ages on census records were often wrong.]
Mary  J., age 18, born in OH  [Look at the 1846 will for the father Lawrence....he included Mary Jane Winkler daughter of James Winkler.]
---------page 582
Enoch Winkler, age 30,  a farmer, born in OH [This is the right age to be Jacob's brother.];  Rachel, age 33, born PA;  Josiah, 10, OH;  Fanny J., 8, OH;  Mary, 7, OH;  John, 5, OH

On the previous census page, page 581, for Wayne Township, Wayne co OH is George. [His age here coincides closely with the age given above by Ralph Brighton at WorldConnect.] George Winkler, age 59, born NC, a farmer with $3000 in land;  Robert L, age 18, Oh;  Elizabeth, 16, OH;  Joseph, 13, OH;  Mary, 11, OH;  George, 9, OH;  Thomas, 7, OH

------------------
I believe that Lawrence Winkler and wife Fanny were the grandparents of John Wesley Winkler.  From Probate records in Wooster a Lawrence Winkler was living in Wayne Twp at the time of his death.  His wife's name was Fanny.  His property was the NorthWest Quarter of section 18 township 16 Range 13 in Wayne Twp.  and it contained 182 acres more or less.  Besides his wife, included in the will were Maryjane Winkler daughter of James Winkler, daughters Rebecca, Liddy and Ediann; sons John, George, James, Jacob, and Enoch.  The will was written in 1846.

Of the sons mentioned in Lawrence's will, the ones I didn't find a possible 1850 census record for were John and James.  I will have to try to find in Wooster who the girls married.  Wonder what happened to John and James.  They could be in that 1850 census and was just missing from the records at Ancestry or perhaps they died between 1846 and 1850, or moved away.  George was not in the index, and I found him by accident...luckily.  If the name is spelled wrong in the index there is no easy way to find it.  I can check the book census index at the library.

Hardesty's Historical and Geographical Encyclopedia. [Wayne County Ohio version] published in 1885, page 492, Salt Creek Twp section:
 "Eugene Wisard enlisted in Salt Creek Township, Wayne county, on August 6, 1862, and at Camp Mansfield, on October 10, 1862, he was mustered into Company D, 120th Ohio Volunteer Infantry.  He had volunteered his services for three years, but fate ordained that he should never take the field.  Detailed as teamster, he accompanied the regiment across to Covington from Cincinnati, and while in the performance of duty there his team became frightened and ran away, and he was thrown down a thirty-five feet embankment.  He was picked up insensible and borne to a hospital, where examination revealed that he had broken the left knee, smashing the knee cap, and his entire left side was severely bruised.  Many months of suffering in hospital ensued, at Covington, then at Memphis, then at Cairo, Illinois, from which hospital he received discharge from service on February 5, 1863.  He is a member of E.M. Mast Post, No. 305, G.A.R.  He was born in Canton Berne, Switzerland, February 22, 1830, the son of David and Mary A. (Emeline) Wisard, and his father was fifteen years quartermaster in the Swiss army. Louis, brother of Eugene, served over thirteen years in the 5th United States Light Artillery, and died at Fortress Monroe, July 14, 1866, after a lingering illness.  He bore the reputation of being the finest bugler in the United States army, as well as a faithful soldier.  In Wayne county, January 29, 1856, Eugene Wisard married Margaret J. Reed, who was born in Lancaster county, Pennsylvania, the daughter of Robert and Sarah (Wilson) Reed.  Farming is Mr. Wisard's occupation, and his postoffice address is Fredericksburg, Wayne county, Ohio."

Wooster Weekly Republican, 21 Feb 1894 page 3  [died 18 Feb 1894]
"GENE" WISSARD KILLED - Deadly Quarrel Over Causes Not Clear - Clubbed by the Negro with whom he had Disputed
Special to the Wooster Republican
Fredericksburg, O. Feb 19
Eugene Wissard, a farmer, residing between this place and Maysville, died last evening from the effect of a blow on the head with a club in the hands of a negro.  The men boarded at Mrs. Beiner's and it is said had a dispute last Wednesday evening over cards, when Wisard reached for a gun and the negro struck him on the head with a club, fracturing Wissard's skull.  Wissard lay unconscious for two days.  He was greatly improved Saturday but took worse Sunday and died about 9 o'clock Sunday night.
  The negro was in the employ of Robert Russell, contractor on the Baltimore & Ohio, taking care of mules.  Wissard was a widower, aged about 50 years.  He was a man greatly addicted to drink, but a man of very peacable [sic] disposition.  He was nearly killed in Wooster a few years ago by being struck by a locomotive on the Pittsburg Ft. Wayne & Chicago Railroad.
  Additional Particulars --  From a resident of Fredericksburg who was in Wooster Monday afternoon, The Republican learns that the man who struck Eugene Wissard left for parts unknown Saturday night.  His real name was not ascertained as he was only known about the village by the name of "Henry," but his last name is supposed to be Lewis.  He is quite tall, very dark, and has a heavy moustache.  The claim was made by those who are familiar with the affair that the negro acted in self defense.
   Wissard and the negro had been away and came to Mrs. Biener's very drunk and at the supper table got into a quarrel, when Wissard started for a gun;  whereupon the negro struck him on the head with a piece of stovewood.  When Wissard fell he fell backward out of the kitchen door, striking on the back of his head and during his delirium complained more of the pain in the back of his head than where the negro struck him.  Dr. D. P. Shie, of Fredericksburg, was called and gave the injured man attention;  and it is said he did not think his injuries would prove fatal.  No effort was made by the township authorities to take the colored man into custody nor did they think it necessary to summon Coroner Huntsberger to hold an inquest, although the propriety of doing so was suggested to them.  

 Death record:  Eugene WISARD died 18 Feb 1894 at Salt Creek, Wayne Co OH.  Age 62 born 1832 France.  Widowed.  Ohio-EASy, film 579409, v 2 p 80.
