Death Date 

Paper mentioned that mother had no letters received from the soldier.  She signed Mary Jane Anderson.

An affidavit by D. M. Cook, age 68, of PO Mansfield, Richland Co OH, stated that the soldier was never married and left no widow or children.  

An affidavit by Mary E. Eyerly, age 45 yrs, PO Mansfield OH.   She said that the family was very poor and was supported principally by William.  And after William's death they had a hard time getting along.  "I had known them to make whole meals with nothing but corn bread.  The claimant only had one vessel to cook in."  About the father, "James Anderson was sick in 1863 with a cancer in his face and always after he was unable to do much work on account of that trouble and his general broken down health."  

Affidavit of Robert Bell, age 69, PO Lexington, Richland Co OH and Jacob Guise, age 72, PO Mansfield, OH.  15 Feb 1990.
"That we knew claimant and her family in 1863 and ever since.  In 1863 claimants husband was about 47 or 48 years of age, occupation was a blacksmith.  At that time he was afflicted with a cancer on his face which rendered him unfit for work.  Often he had to quit work on account of said trouble and of his general health being broken down.  Would judge that in 1863 he was disabled more than one half the time."
"During that year would judge his income from all sources did not exceed one hundred and twenty-five dollars and since 1887 he has been unable to earn anything on account of being unable to do any work."
"Their children [at] home always helped them.  The girls worked out of doors like boys and all have done the best they could."
 Affidavit of Ella Au, age 57, PO Mansfield OH.  "James Andersons health continued bad and became so bad that he gave up his shop and quit blacksmithing.  He never after 1863 was able to support his family himself."

Affidavit of Jacob Guise, age 71, PO Mansfield OH.  There were five children in the family besides the soldier.

Page 113:  "On the 29th my command had the advance, and struck the enemy near ---- Church, in force behind barricades.  The infantry was pushed forward, and Major Young was formed on their right, with orders to charge the enemy in flank, or take any advantage the enemy might give him.  One piece of artillery was placed on the left of the infantry, with the Second Kentucky as support.  The enemy was quickly dislodged.  At this place fell one of the noblest young spirits of our army, Lieut. Henry Crooks, ordnance officer on my staff, fell pierced through the head by the 'swift messenger of death.' He was a young man of great promise, of fine talents, great energy, and correct habits, a model soldier, a thorough gentleman, and a man of unflinching and uncompromising integrity.  He fell in the discharge of his duty, the soldier's death.  'Death loves a shining mark,' says the poet, and seldom has the 'unerring shaft' reached a nobler heart."

Cemetery:  Springfield, MO............Joseph and Rachel might be buried at Dodson Cem, Mentor, Greene Co MO, but I am not sure because the dates don't quite match.  Also, there isn't any indication on the grave marker of military service.  Greene county and Christian County where they lived are right next to each other.

"engaged in cutting cordwood, digging wells and performing other arduous labor immediately previous to his enlistment."  [Note: GROSVENOR was from Richland Co OH before and during the War.]
[2353-4] Christopher AU, Captain, Co I 120th, testified in a letter: In the of 1863, "...being encamped about five or six weeks on very low, wet marshy ground, That the country was so low and the ground covered with water so generally, that the Regt had to be moved some three of four times in order to get the troops out of the water on dry land.  And at the time the Regt was encamped as above described, it was a great deal of sickness in the Regt.  That two-thirds of the Regt were at some times unable to perform duty, and that so many being sick, affiant is unable to remember many of the particulars in the case of any of the men who were sick.  He would therefore say, that he remembers distinctly, of the fact, that said Wm Henry contracted diarrhea and cough while in the service, and suffered from the same to such an extent, as to render him unfit for duty, and caused him to become quite feeble and emaciated but cannot remember just how long his illness continued but thinks he was left in convalescent camp at Milikens bend when the Regt moved forward to attack Vicksburg.  
[2360] Widow was age 33 in Feb 1867.  So she was born ca 1834.
[2363] Dr. H. O. MACK was the attending physician at the birth of daughter Sarah HENRY on 19 Aug 1861.  He appeared in Richland Co OH to testify.  Dated 13 Feb 1867.  
[2364] Marriage Cert.  
[2332-5]Thomas J. HILL, of Co I, 120th OVI, testified: "that the said Wm Henry remained healthy, up to the Spring of 1863 at about which time the said Wm Henry was attacked with diarrhea and at the same time contracted a severe cold which settled on his lungs and produced a very severe cough, which continued for the space of three or four months to affiants personal knowledge.  At the time said Wm Henry contracted said disease of the lungs, or consumption, the Regt. was stationed at Young's Point, La. where it remained during several months.  Said Wm Henry was a member of the same Company to which affiant belonged and being an acquaintance and from the same town in which the affiant had resided, affiant felt it his duty to take charge of him and attend to his wants as far as possible, during his illness and that affiant did so take charge of said Henry, and waited on him, and watched over him, day after day and night after night during his illness of several months.  Affiant is of the opinion that the hard marching and exposure thru which said Henry had passed just previous to his illness, was the cause of said illness.  That said Henry was regular and temperate in his habits, and did not, in the opinion of the affiant, produce said disease or injure himself in any manner by recklessness or unnecessary exposure.  Affiant last saw said Henry in convalescent camp at Youngs Pt. at which place he was left when the Regt. moved forward to attack Vicksburg and he at that time was very much reduced, and presented the most haggard appearance and was so weak and feeble from the ravages of disease that he was scarcely able to walk."

J. Hill almost daily during the above mentioned latter period of time:  that for the past 5 or 6 years, he, the said T. J. Hill, has suffered and is now suffering from general disability; in particular, from a numbness, or partial paralysis of his right side and right limbs, which in a large measure prevents the use of that side and those limbs and rending action with them slow painful and difficult; that he the said T. J. Hill, in consequence of said general debility, and the particular condition of right side and limbs above mentioned is unable to do more than one half the work at his trade that a workman, in sound physical condition could ordinarily do and that, with much more physical pain, effort and exhaustion, than an able bodied man would suffer in performing twice the amount of work.  His kind of work being 'piece work,' he can earn only in proportion to what he can do."
[2781-2]Robert S. BRADY, age 33, of Delaware testifies:  Brady worked with Hill for Riddle and ?Groff cigar making business.  Mentions scurvy as one of Hill's afflictions.  HILL ceased to work in the cigar business in August 1890.

___________
The History of Richland County Ohio from 1808 to 1908 V. II by A.J. Baughman contains a biography of Philip's brother, Peter, on pages 800 to 804.  The copy I used appeared to have had a picture page that had been cut out of the book.
The bio says that the "paternal grandfather, David Kuhn, was born near Wurtemberg , Germany, and emigrated to America in 1754, locating on a farm in Franklin county, Pennsylvania, this tract of land having remained in the Kuhn family to the present time.[1908]  The father of our subject [subject = Peter],
Samuel Kuhn, was born on his father's farm in Franklin county, Pennsylvania, October 7, 1807.  He was married in the Keystone state to Miss Julia Ann Reymer, who was born april 10, 1812.......they came to Richland county on the 1st of June, 1833.  They established their home on a farm in Plymouth township, located midway between the villages of Shelby and Plymouth.  They made the journey to Richland county by wagon, the party also including his [Samuel's] brother John and his family, the brothers having married sisters. The two families make their home on that tract of land for eight years.  When they arrived here they had no plow and drove to Mansfield, a distance of twelve miles, but could secure none and on their return stopped at the home of a farmer, who sold them a plow for twelve dollars.  They endured many hardships and privations on account of the unsettled condition of the country and bore their full share in the development and progress that was here carried on. 
    The maternal grandfather of our subject [subject = Peter KUHN], Philip Reymer, was born near Wurtemberg, Germany, and was left an orphan at the age of twelve years.  He then emigrated to America, his passage being paid upon arrival by a man in New Jersey, with whom he made his home.  He received ill treatment and one day while in the field threshing rye a recruiting officer of the Continental army passed and asked Mr. Reymer to become a member of the army.  He was at that time only fifteen years of age, but becoming identified with the Continental army served in the Revolutionary war for seven years.  His wife bore the maiden name of Ellen Statler and their family numbered three sons and five daughters.  Mr. Reymer died in Franklin county, Pennsylvania.
   
The family of Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Kuhn numbered ten children, as follows:  Louisa, the wife of John G. Hartman, of Jackson township:  Ellen, the deceased wife of J.W. Huffman, also of this township;  Philip, who served in the Civil war as a member of Company I, One Hundred and Twentieth Ohio Volunteer Infantry and is now deceased [book dated 1908]; Sarah, the wife of Joseph Cairns, of Jackson township; Harriet, who died at the age of two years; Peter, of this review; Elijah, of Shelby; George and Samuel, who died in infancy; and Reymer, who makes his home in Cleveland."  [Brother Peter served in Co B, 121st OVI.]

Quote from THE MANSFIELD HERALD:  06 March 1884, Vol. 34, No. 16, which tells the story of a group of Mansfield men who went to California in 1849 to look for gold:  "In the order we first named them is William McIlvaine.  Now, he is Captain McIlvaine, as tall, rugged and hearty now as then, as genial and generous now as then;  the same eager and interested searcher for truth and news now as then -- older, it is true, by the sum of all the intervening years.  More experienced than then, for he made a second trip to the Pacific Coast, and when treason threatened the flag, he stood at the front in defense of liberty and law and the starry banner of beauty."

J
ames Manley, of Springfield, Clark Co OH gave description of the attack on the steamer at Snaggy Point, LA. in the pension papers of his comrade Benjamin PAYNE:  ... 2nd day of May 1864.  On that day our Regt was on the Ohio Belle going up the Red River on the Banks Expedition.  There were 25 of us up on the Hurricane Deck as pickets.  We did not think there was anything there but guerillas in the woods, but the first thing we knew they opened on us with cannon and then the Infantry fired into us.  Claimant [PAYNE] jumped off of the boat into the water and as he fell struck the side of the boat.  I ran down the stairway and there were a couple of Kentucky soldiers swam with a line and pulled the boat to the shore and 154 of us got away.  The rebs were on the other side of the river and they captured the balance of the Regt and burned the boat.  Our party took to the woods and marched 20 miles and we went into a cotton field and stayed all night.  The next day we went to the River and went to Alexandria.  It was about 4 weeks after that before Payne joined us.  He and one or two more men lay in a swamp awhile.  ???? first gun boat that came along they got on it.  When he came to us he was all stiffened up and kind of limped when he walked and he was that way when I left the Regt in Oct or Nov 1864.  I just saw him as he was on the way to be mustered out and I never saw him again until about 4 years ago.  He was near? lame than he was in the army and he complained of rheumatism.... in ?? places.  He might have struck the lower deck when he jumped but he ?arrived to jump in the river.

Page 1003-1004:  William B. Millikin was living in Ontario in 1908.  He was born in Allen Co OH, 2 Dec 1837.  Father, Daniel MILLIKIN.  Mother Minerva BOWERS.  Siblings: William B., Hannah, Anna, Jerry, and Malissa.  Step mothers were Sarah MUSSER and Rachel Van METER.  Rachel and Daniel's father had two children Daniel Perry and Thomas B.  William was a teacher and farm worker before the war.  He enlisted at Mansfield.  
 Page 1004 "In the spring of 1864 Mr. Millikin, then a commissioned officer, was sent down the river in charge of a company of men to build a mile of dyke.  This work he successfully accomplished and the experience which he there acquired in the line of construction has been of marked benefit to him in his later years. ..... Aft completing the dyke Mr. Millikin took part in the Red River campaign.  While a part of the command was down the river on the steamboat City Bell, about forty miles below Alexandria, they were attacked by General Taylor and the vessel was captured, the troops being made prisoners of war.  Mr. Millikin was among this number.  The prisoners were taken to Alexandria and hence marched overand, a distance of one hundred and ten miles, to Camp Ford near Tyler, Texas, where Mr. Millikin was incarcerated from Maty 23, 1864, until May 27, 1865,when the war was ended, and he was set free, being released on that date at the mouth of the Red river, and for the first time learned of the surrender of Lee, and the assassination of President Lincoln -- events which had occurred in the middle of April, but no news thereof had been allowed to reach the Union soldiers.  Mr. Millikin did not compain of his one year's incarceration, for he said that the conditions at Tyler were far superior to those at Andersonvile, or Libby: that they had plenty of good [page 1005] water and a reasonable allowance of corn, which was ground just as nature left it --husk, cob and kernel--and then converted into food.  While in prison Mr. Milliken was engaged most of the time making coffins.  On one occasion he was in possession of a three bladed knife which he had in some manner concealed from the guards.  This he sold for twelve dollars in gold, while engaged upon negotiations whereby he could secure a better knife for ten dollars.  The soldiers used many devices wherewith to while away the time, but the hours doubtless at times seemed very long when, in forced inactivity, they awaited the result of the efforts of their brother soldiers on the battlefield."

Included in pension papers for William RICHEY [See below] of this same company, was a letter of testimony for Richey written by J. H. MORTON of Galion, Crawford Co OH.  Dated 2 July 1886.
Mr. W. F. RICHIE was a comrade in the 120 Reg. Co I, the same that I was in and we were intimate friends.  He was then a stout hearty young man and seemed to be in perfect health and a good soldier and he is as worthy of a pension as I am or any other soldier.  And if he don't get it soon it will never do him any good.  He is unable to do anything and [has] a large family of small children.  But to the evidence you are after covers much time and space.  I kept a diary from Aug 1862 to May 1864 up to the time I was wounded and I shall make the statement as short as possible.  While we lay at Chickasaw Bluffs in 1862 he was afflicted with yellow jaundice and diarrhea.  And he would never report [sick] as long as he could get around and by not reporting [he] was on duty when called.  Then at Arkansas Post Jan 1863 did not report and was in the fight when I knew he ought to of been in the hospital.  And there he caught a bad cold that settled on his lungs.  But still kept in the ranks by not reporting until we were at Champion Hills he was absent from the ranks for a short time.  He frequently reported for a few days at a time.  Then we were sent to New River Landing and I remember his being brought in from picket insensible caused by a combination of the above named complaints which produced general debility.  Then we was sent up Red River and about the first of May 1864 our Reg 120th OVI was all ?ent? to peaces [pieces] and our regimental papers were all destroyed by the enemy.  I was ?and? crippled for life and from that time until the close of the war I have no personal knowledge of Mr. Richie.  I signed a statement once before but did not realize what was required of me.  I get to see him occasionally and in my judgment he is badly used up in the service of his country and he is legally entitled to a pension and if it ever does him any good it must come soon.  I could say much more but time and space is to great for me to do more.  Yours in spirit and truth, from J. H. Morton co I, 120th Reg OVI

Pension papers sent by Debbie Ferdetta:
[2734 & 2752 Thomas Hill's files] William W. NEWTON was the minor child of Oren W. Newton and Johanna.  That second file says that the pension was rejected because the soldier, Oren, had disease of the lungs at the time he enlisted.  He was discharged 29 Nov 1862 and died 31 July 1869.  Oren and Joannah may have been married 16 Mar 1866.
[2753 Thomas Hill's file] Family Bible was examined.  Willliam Warren was born 12 July 1868.
[2756] Dated 27 Dec 1898.  Affiants Hannah MOLES, age 60, and Nathan MOLES, age 59, of Massilon, Stark Co OH:  "That they were both well and personally acquainted with both Johannah Hill and Oren W. Newton for several years prior to their marriage, March 16", 1866, and from their acquaintance with them know that neither of them were married prior to that marriage, although the said Johannah did live for a number of years with one Thomas J. Hill and passed as his wife.  They were not legally married, however and just before the war broke out they separated and each went his and her own way.  Her maiden name was Johanna Jones.  After they [Johanna and Newton] were married they lived in various places, and of that marriage there was born only one child, William W. Newton, who was born in July 1868.  At the time of the death of Oren W. Newton they lived in the City of Massillon, Ohio. He died the last of July 1869, and was buried in the cemetery at that city.  He died of consumption.  He had suffered from lung trouble ever since he had come from the army.  To affiants knowledge, he did not have the appearance of having any such troubles before his enlistment.  Affiants have known the claimant, William W. Newton, all his life and know that he is the only child of that marriage and that he is still living."
[2757
Thomas Hill's files] Orrin N. NEWTON married Johanna JONES, 16 Mar 1866 at the parsonage of Trinity Episcopal Church in Toledo, Lucas Co, OH.
[2759
Thomas Hill's files] Oren W. Newton, age 45 yrs, died July 1869 and was buried Lot one, Sec 2, Massillon Cem.  
[2766-7] Dated 2 Jan 1899, in Delaware county, Joanna testified:  "That no public record exists of any marriage or divorce of herself and Thomas J. Hill prior to her marriage to the said soldier [Oren Newton], and that no ceremony of marriage did in fact take place.  That when she was quite young, about the year 1847, she and Thomas J. Hill mutually promised each other that they would live together, and in accordance with that promise, and relying upon the statement of Thomas J. Hill, and she knowing no better, they did live together until about the time the war broke out, when they mutually agreed to separate, and did separate, each going his or her own way.  That she did not live with the said Thomas J. Hill again until she was legally married to him on the 12" day of January, 1875.  That when she made her application, she did not disclose to her attorney any of the above facts, nor did she disclose to him any of the above facts until after she received the Call of date of Nov. 9", sent herewith, and that after telling him all, she determined to lay all the facts before the Pension Department, in order that no fraud might be perpetrated, for none has ever been intended.
   That she is unable to comply with the requirements of No. 7, for the reason that her son, she said William W. Newton, was born in Cleveland, Ohio, and that there is no Public Record of his birth that she has any knowledge of.  that there is no church record of baptism.  That she does not know the name of the attending physician, other than her husband who was a physician, nor the female attendants.  and that the only record of his birth is the record made in her Family Bible, which is as follows, - "William Warren [NEWTON] was born 1868 on the 12" day of July," which record was made soon after his birth. "
 
[2769] Dated 12 Apr 1898 Joanna was rejected for pension under NEWTON because "claimant was not the legal widow of soldier, being the wife of Thomas J. Hill by a previous marriage at common law during all of her cohabitation with soldier.  Also rejec5ted on the ground that soldiers fatal disease of lungs existed at enlistment."
[2812] Certificate of Disability for Discharge:  Owen W. NEWTON was born in Vermont.  At his enlistment at age 28, he was 6 ft 1.5 inches tall, with sandy complexion and hair and black eyes.  He was a cigar maker.  Unfit for duty because of phthisis pulmonatis [tuberculosis].

Headstone Application paper:  Benjamin PAYNE, enlisted 22 Feb 1864, discharged 7 May 1866, Pvt, Co C 48th Battalion, OH Veterans Inf.  Age at death 36.  Died 11 Jan 1896.  Greenlawn Cem, Portsmouth, OH.  Applicant: Robert N. LEWIS, 2244 Vinton Ave, Portsmouth OH.  Signed by him 2 June 1962.  Address of consignee [cemetery??] 1654 3rd st Portsmouth, OH.  The cemetery's address is 55 Mary Ann St......so I don't know hat this consignee address is.  

Kay has provided this portion of Barret Payne's will freeing the slave Mary and their children:

"I do set free my mulatto woman named Polly and her four last children, Ben, Joe, Ellen, and Fleming with a desire that my Executors shall provide a safe transportation for them in some free state (knowing that according to the present laws of Virginia they cannot remain free in this state) at the expense of my estate, also to pay them the sum of $100 at their place of destination for their present support."

Barret died in 1853.  

It is interesting that it looks like Ellen, Joe and Fleming came to Ohio before their father died in 1853.  And it seems that their mother, May, was with them.  

[See Joseph Payne in National Archives pension file notes below.  Joseph PAYNE and Mansfield PETERS both testified as to Benjamin's marriage.  It is believed that May Payne in this 1850 census is their mother Mary Polly.]

---------------------------------
Widow's Pension papers www.fold3.com:  
After the death of John POOL, Sarah had what turned out to be a seemingly sad life, being taken advantage of by a couple of disreputable types.  

Husband John POOL
John POOL, I 120th OH Inf.  Widow, Sarah L POOL, filed 1863 Mar 17.  Sarah L. LOGAN, maiden name.  John died at Young's Point near Vicksburg, 25 Feb 1863 from diarrhea and typhoid fever.  John POOL and Sarah Lavina LOGAN married 1 Jun 1843 in Richland Co OH.   She and POOL were married 5 miles west of Mansfield OH in Richland Co, Springfield Twp. Her father's name was William LOGAN.  Neither had been married before.  They had gone to school together at Quail Trap School House.

Husband Samuel LINDSAY
 It seems Sarah was later married to LINDSAY from whom she was divorced.  She had married Samuel LINDSEY in Richland Co OH on 24 July 1866, and from whom she was divorced [Indianapolis, Marion Co IN, 6 July 1885]. LINDSEY was a conductor or brakeman when they married.   She moved to Brightwood just at the edge of Indianapolis IN.  He moved also but was away selling books much of the time.  He also was a drinker.   LINDSAY claimed to have been in the army 3 yrs and 3 months. After their divorce he remarried and continued to live somewhere in Indiana. He had a sister Emeline who married George BENDER whose p o address was Poplar, OH near Upper Sandusky OH.  Another document said that LINDSAY had been a traveling preacher who was a "Free Love" sort of person.  

Husband William T. WADE  [The packet also includes his invalid pension applications.]
Sarah LINDSAY married again to William T. WADE at Indianapolis, Marion Co IN on 19 Jan 1893. William WADE had twice previously been married, both having died, or so Sarah thought.  Sarah and WADE were married in Indianapolis IN at the Grace Methodist Church.  Sarah was working at a boarding house where WADE lived.  WADE had an arm taken off while living there. They had known each other 5 or 6 weeks before marrying. WADE had 5 children all married, but she couldn't name them in the documents.  Sarah admited that, a year before WADE died, that she learned about the living former first wife.  She said that he denied it. She had no money and nowhere else to go so she stayed with him. That first wife was named Nancy.  Nancy had a brother named Esquire M. HEADY.  His second wife died at Greensburg, IN and Sarah thought that wife was buried near Brightwood, possibly in Odd Fellow's cemetery.  That second wife was Mary E. WADE, buried at South Park Cemetery, Greensburg IN, born Ripley Co IN, 30 July 1857, died 13 Oct 1890, age 33 y, 2 m, 13 dys. [See other dates for this second wife at
Find a Grave.  Her maiden name was SWAZEY.]     WADE had a half brother named Beverly C. WADE of Brightwood and he may have been the person who told her about the living wife of WADE.  There were no minor heirs for William WADE, but he did have 5 children with his first wife.  His brother, Beverly WADE, testified that his half brother's living wife was Nancy HEADY [maiden name] and she lived in Spence Co IN.  He said that WADE told him that he didn't think it was necessary to tell Sarah that he had a first wife who was still living.  It turned out that WADE had been sent to the penitentiary for five years. Thinking that she was free, his first wife married STEPHENS.  At the time that Sarah was trying to get the widow's pension, Nancy STEPHENS was living with her and WADE's daughter, Mrs. J. R. HURST, in Newtonville.  Nancy had been under the impression that when WADE went to the penitentiary that it was the same as a divorce, so she never sought a divorce.  WADE went to prison in KY for stealing a horse in Ohio Co KY.  He went to prison on 26 Nov 1872 for a five year sentence but was pardoned 18 Sep 1874.  "He was 52 years of age when admitted; that he had received a common education; he measured when stripped 5 feet 9.5 inches in height and weighed 152 pounds; complexion fair, gray eyes, dark hair; scar on his right shoulder - one scar on left arm, and one scare on the breast."  This was not the only time that WADE ended up in jail.  

WADE had been in Co C, 4th Ind Vols. ??Mexican War. [Enlisted 28 May 1847 and discharged 20 July 1848.]   WADE enlisted about 28 May 1847 for term of the war.  Honorably discharged at Madison IN on  20 July 1848 having served 13 months and 22 days.  WADE at the time of his enlistment was 20 yrs old, 5 ft 9 inches tall, light complexion, black eyes and dark hair, a farmer.      
WADE was also in Co G, 1st Reg Kansas Cav [Civil War], and 4th Regiment, IN [Mexican War].  In another document WADE said he was in Co F, 136th IN volunteers and not in any other IN regiment in the Civil War. He mustered into that company on 20 May 1864 and out on 5 Sep 1864,  He had also been in the 1st Missouri Cavalry from about 1 Aug 1861 until fall of that year when he transferred to the 1st Kansas.

Sarah said in 1895 that she had to provide constant care for WADE.  WADE died 1 May 1901 at Indianapolis IN.  Sarah said WADE died of  a broken down constitution and paralysis, but did not have consumption as was stated previously.  He would shake and tremble.    [Find a Grave:  William T. WADE, burial 1 May 1901 at Crown Hill Cem, Indianapolis, Marion Co IN, Sec 9 lot 851.  Sarah WADE is not listed there at FG.]

On 11 Jun 1901 Sarah L WADE applied for pension, resident of Indianapolis IN as widow of William T WADE who served as Pvt in the 4th Regiment of the Indiana Foot Volunteers under Capt M. L. PAYNE.  

On 29 Nov 1902 a letter was written saying that one of WADE's other wives was not dead, but still living and there had been no divorce; so Sarah withdrew her pension request for WADE's service. The living former wife may have been named Martha or Nancy.   So Sarah tried to get her pension with John POOL reinstated.    She never had any children.

In Dec 1902 Sarah WADE was in the Soldiers Home, La Fayette, Tippecanoe Co IN.

Sarah's only relative was Wm H. LOGAN of Lexington, Richland Co OH in May of 1904.  Pension agent at Indianapolis was notified to drop Sarah from pension because she died 24 Mar 1906.  Sarah was born 1 Feb 1823, which she couldn't prove because "the family bible was sold at a public sale."   [Note: William H. Logan was living in Troy, Richland Co OH in 1900 census, wife Barbry.  He was born Dec 1832 in OH.  He might have been Sarah's brother who had been married in 1855.  Ohio Death records:  William Hamton LOGAN died at Lexington, Richland Co OH on 24 Dec 1912.  Married.  Born 22 Dec 1832 in OH, farmer.  Age 80 yrs, 2 dys.  Father William LOGAN born PA.  Mother Mary PATTERSON born PA.  Burial Lexington.  Informant J. H. WILES of Lexington, O.]

[Note; Aaron M BROWN, MD, was an assistant surgeon with the 22nd OVI.]|
[2545]Dated 2 July 1886.  Included in pension papers for William RICHEY [See below] of this same company, was a letter of testimony for Richey written by J. H. MORTON of Galion, Crawford Co OH.
Mr. W. F. RICHIE was a comrade in the 120 Reg. Co I, the same that I was in and we were intimate friends.  He was then a stout hearty young man and seemed to be in perfect health and a good soldier and he is as worthy of a pension as I am or any other soldier.  And if he don't get it soon it will never do him any good.  He is unable to do anything and [has] a large family of small children.  But to the evidence you are after covers much time and space.  I kept a diary from Aug 1862 to May 1864 up to the time I was wounded and I shall make the statement as short as possible.  While we lay at Chickasaw Bluffs in 1862 he was afflicted with yellow jaundice and diarrhea.  And he would never report [sick] as long as he could get around and by not reporting [he] was on duty when called.  Then at Arkansas Post Jan 1863 did not report and was in the fight when I knew he ought to of been in the hospital.  And there he caught a bad cold that settled on his lungs.  But still kept in the ranks by not reporting until we were at Champion Hills he was absent from the ranks for a short time.  He frequently reported for a few days at a time.  Then we were sent to New River Landing and I remember his being brought in from picket insensible caused by a combination of the above named complaints which produced general debility.  Then we was sent up Red River and about the first of May 1864 our Reg 120th OVI was all ?ent? to peaces [pieces] and our regimental papers were all destroyed by the enemy.  I was ?and? crippled for life and from that time until the close of the war I have no personal knowledge of Mr. Richie.  I signed a statement once before but did not realize what was required of me.  I get to see him occasionally and in my judgment he is badly used up in the service of his country and he is legally entitled to a pension and if it ever does him any good it must come soon.  I could say much more but time and space is to great for me to do more.  Yours in spirit and truth, from J. H. Morton co I, 120th Reg OVI  
[2549] Similar testimony by W. B. MILLIKIN, age 48, of Ontario, Springfield Twp, Richland Co OH.
[2551] Dated 5 Sep 1887.  Lieut. W. B. Millikin wrote that Richey was offered a discharge at different times at St. Louis Hospital and was offered a discharge by General Austerhouse.  He wrote that no doctors thought when he was taken from the hospital at Youngs Point  and onto a hospital boat that he would ever get well.
[2563]  Dated 16 Aug 1886, letter from Alfred WILSON:  The the Hon Commissioner of Pensions.  Sir   This is to certify that I, Alfred Wilson, a Private of Co I 120th OVI was well acquainted with W. F. Richey in the winter of 1862.  He was taken sick with yellow jaundice and diarrhea at Chickasaw Bluffs Miss.  Afterwards took part in the Battle of Arkansas Post 63 when not well.  From exposure there, took cold that settled on his lungs.  Done but little duty till May 63.  Remained with the Regt. till March 65 doing duty when able.  Complaining of his lungs a great deal of the time.  Was then sent to Hospital 2 or 3 weeks at Fort Gains, Ala.  Then returned to Regt at Mobile Ala.   And remained with it to Oct 14 1865.  Said W. F. Richey was a good soldier and a good citizen, sober and industrious, needy with a large family to support.  Not been able to work.  Ought to have had a pension long ago.  Yours respectfully, Alfred Wilson, P.O. address Crestline, OH.

[2572] Letter by Richey dated 20 Sep 1887:  In the fall of 1872 I went to Buffalo New York and remained until the spring, 1st May 1874.  While there I was under the care of Dr. G. E.

 [2575] Affidavit of A. C. BIEN of Cincinnati, Hamilton Co OH:  I lived in the same neighborhood with W. F. Richey during the years 1878, 1879, 1880 A.D.  My residence was within two (2) squares of his and I saw and conversed with him from two to three times a week on an average during the years 1878 and 1879.  I was on friendly terms with him during that period.
The said W. F. Richey was afflicted with chronic diarrhea and hemorage of the lungs during all the time of my acquaintanceship with him.  During a large part of 1878 and 1879 he was disabled from work.  And during a greater part of 1880 he was so bad from the effects of sickness that he was confined to his bed.  
I am able to tell what his disease was from statements he made to me at the time and from his appearance and acts.  He appeared thin and pale and haggard and was continually coughing.  In 1878, he was sickly, frequently prevented from working.  In 1879 he was growing worse.  In 1880 he was confined more to his bed.

Oddly enough, as I was researching a soldier today who was buried at Chalmette LA, I realized from the fact that this other soldier died also at Marine Hospital in New Orleans, LA, that William Roddy might have his final resting place at Chalmette Cemetery.  [Chalmette National Cemetery, St, Bernard Parish, LA     E. BEBELL, section 48, grave 3743, died 4 Oct 1863  Chalmette National Cemetery, Union Database:  BEBBELL, E., sec 48, grave 3743, pvt Co K 120 OH Inf, died 4 Oct 1863, moved from Cypress Grove, LA.]  This other soldier was first buried at Cypress Grove LA and then reburied at Chalmette.  Chalmette is in St. Bernard Parish, Louisiana.  There are a number of the soldiers from the 120th buried there.  However, Wm Roddy is not listed.  I am thinking that he is buried there as an "unknown."  This is the list that I searched: http://www.civilwarhome.com/chalmla.htm

Written from Carrollton LA, 1 Sep 1863
Sir
It is with regret that I am compelled to inform you of the death of your brother William Roddey who died at the marine Hospital Aug 30th. He was taken sick while on the march from Black River Miss. to Jackson and was sent back to Black River when we came back to Vicksberg.  He again joined us and was in a fair way of getting well.  I then tried to have him sent home on sick furlough with Wm Henny and James Coleman but failed and we were ordered to bring all our sick with us when we came down here and on arriving here we were put under marching orders and were ordered to send our sick to the hospital.  He was taken there Aug 25th but soon after arriving there he gave up and said that he must die.  He sent for the chaplain and was baptised.  He was first taken sick with fever and got better and then the diarrhea set in which soon became chronic and cut short the life of one who was loved by all who knew him.  He was always while in health at his post and was in all the battles that the Regt was in except Jackson and there was only prevented by sickness.  I herewith send you a certificate which will enable you or his father to draw his back pay and bounty which is due him.  I also intend to send to you some of his effects the first opportunity I have which I think will present itself in a day or two as there is a couple young men of the Regt expects to go home on sick furlough in a day or two while at Port Hudson.  He had the bad luck one night while asleep to have his pants stole with all the money he had and little trinkets.  I will send all that I can get the boys to take and dispose of the rest to the best advantage I can.  The things I will send in a carpet sack of my own to my wife and she will deliver them over to you on their arrival there.  In conclusion I would say that all was done that could be done during his sickness to supply his wants and especially while in the hospital.  I was told that they watched over and attended him almost with mothers care.  Though fair and esteemed was the flower with us, it now blooms (we have hope) with more radiance in the eternal world.
Capt. C. Au
P.S.
I have started Wm Roddy's things, everything he had except his blanket and boots which were too heavy to send.  If they get through safe, you will get them of Mrs. L. J. Au.

From David Wallace   [See also James below.]

James Wallace is my great grandfather and Charles Wallace is my great great uncle.  I can confirm your 1860 census information on both of the boys.  The area they were living in north of Mansfield , OH (Shenandoah), was settled by members of their father’s family (Wallace family from near Pittsburgh ).  Their family had moved to Indiana (Columbia City, Whitley County) by the time of the 1850 census, but something happened in the intervening years and their parents and sister are not to be found on any 1860 or subsequent census roll, and the boys are back in Richland County (I haven’t confirmed it, but suspect that Elizabeth Cline may be their maternal grandmother – their mother’s information is sparse). 

The 1880 and 1900 census information is correct (he had actually moved all the way out to Los Angeles after the war, but then settled in the Denver area).  Charles died in Denver on September 10, 1917, and is buried in Crown Hill Cemetery .  He was a member of the Grand Army of the Republic.  Charles was captured during the Red River Campaign while on the transport City Belle.  He was sent to the Confederate prison camp, Camp Ford (we know he could write as he signed the prison roster).

Your census information for James Wallace is correct.  James wasn’t captured at Snaggy Point (he was part of the group that made it to the opposite shore), which is how he ended up in the 114th OVI, and was mustered out in Texas as part of the 48th OVVI.  James died on September 17, 1925.  Your burial information is correct.  James was also a member of the Grand Army of the Republic, reaching the position of Junior Vice Commander within his Post.

In true Scottish naming tradition, James' first son is named Charles, and Charles' first son is named James.

Family Search:  Joseph WINEMILLER was born in 1841 Montgomery Township, Ashland County OH. His parents were Jacob and Barbary [ROWLAND] WINNEMILLER.  That birth year would correspond to his age at entering the service.

Louis and State of Missouri.  Claimant [Yochim] was at that time greatly troubled and suffering from, which seemed to me chronic diorreah at the same time being afflicted with weak and sore eyes.  And by reason of said disabilities he was not able at certain times to do any work and in which condition he was in during the whole of my acquaintance with him which was in 1874.  And which disabilities were not due to any vicious habits on the part of said claimant for he was a man of good habits.  
[2051] Same man Christian Hohmann, but this time he was from Gumbo, MO.
[2074] Very bad eyes, dated 15 Sep 1900
[2076]  Bad eyes were result of sunstroke in 1864.
