CAUSE OF DEATH/NOTES: 

ADDENDA - Excert from the Mason Genealogy, by Mary E. Mason, 1911 (pg. 237) Letter & map from Cap. Mason to Mrs. Mason, dated Shiloh, Sunday evening, April 27, 1862. ----- "I presume Mrs. Porterfield and Both [should be spelled Booth] and friends are nearly crazy with their loss. I truly sympathize with them and hope no more of my boys will have to be sacrificed upon the alter of liberty. But God himself only knows what is in store for us. Some of my boys are very sick. I have two quite sick. Corporals Dougherty and Clindinst; each with camp fever. I hope they will get along. My boys had rather die fighting the enemy than to died with disease****We are expecting another bout with the enemy again soon, but I do not think it probable that we in our broken condition will be in advance. There are now many Regiments in our advance. The pickets are having frequent bouts with the enemy's pickets.*****

N. B. -- We were ordered to go out Sunday morning and from upon the dotted line touching the old field. We formed and marched down the Corinth road to the bridge. Co. B. was then ordered out as skirmishers and I deployed as far as double dotted line. Before getting my men fairly deployed the enemy were in rouse we were ordered to fall back this side of creek points G. B. and O. (G. B., George Booth was killed) from this position we, Co. B. engaged them and the Reg. marked 77th O. fell back and formed at that point and son engaged them. Co. B. fought every inch of the ground, from new line to gully, without any running, let people say what they will, and too under a galling fire of shot, shell, grape and musketry before getting up to the gully. Many of my boys were wounded on this very ground. Wendlan and Davis, I think of now. A battery of 4 guns answered the enemy's fire and we were ordered to form in head of gully and sustain the battery which we did. Our 40 rounds were expended and we got more and we have not run yet. The enemy crossed the creek three times and was repulsed each time. The flag bearer was killed at F. They then broke and their left wing filed up the new road, giving us a fire which compelled us to retire to a line represented thus '''''. their regt. wing filed up the ravine and flanked our left, compelled us again to retire it being now past eleven oclock; having engaged the enemy from 6 A. M. and at the time our relative position to the enemy was this: [diagram of map shows the REBELS on the east, west, & south. The 77th OVI in the middle facing south - sketch of the map not shown here in this database] The small line the fragment of the 77th Reg. Again we fell back some distance and supported Batterys the balance of the day. Thus ended our Sunday fight. When receiving the order N. B. the enemy was already formed as shown nearly a mile this side with Battery within 300 yards of our tents. I was on picket the night before and some of Sunday. 2. P. M. saw heavy force of cavalry scouring the woods from our right to left. My boys were fired on about 12 Saturday noon. We at 2 A. M. Saturday morning plainly heard the enemy beating their drums on the road to Corinth all of which was duly reported and no notice taken of it, it being considered an absurdity that we would be attacked by the rebels, but you may be assured that the men of my company had but little sleep that night. Nevertheless as a body the Union troops were surprised. We fought well, but as of yet, have not received the credit due us. Some body has murder on their hands. But the outright cold blooded thing is to come yet within the facts and plans of Tuesdays fight is made out." [End of letter in book]

He was 56 years old when his last child (Tillie; my grandmother) was born. Transcript of Obituary from a Parkersburgh, WV. paper:

REGIMENT, COMPANY & RANK:  148th, Co. H 

DATE & PLACE OF DEATH:  1864  Washington 

CAUSE OF DEATH/NOTES:  Taken sick at City Point.  Died in hospital after discharged from regiment.

ADDENDA -  TRUMAN, Haze (Hayes Truman) - Belpre Twp.  His name should be HAYES TRUMAN. He is often mistakenly listed as Truman Haze because of an error by C. E. Dickinson in his "History of Belpre, Ohio," 1920. He transposed the first and last names and changed the spelling.  Hayes Truman was the first husband of my great grandmother's sister, Catherine Sanders "Kit" Clark Truman of Belpre Township.  Hayes contracted tuberculosis during the war and died in 1864 in Washington D. C. and is buried in Arlington National Cemetery. The Trumans' three-year-old son, Frank, also died in 1864 of scarlet fever, and another son, William Austin Truman, died at the age of 24 in 1884. Aunt Kit remarried, moved to Illinois and had a second family. Jacob Clark of Belpre Township, killed at Cross Keys, Virginia, was Kit's brother. A lot of tragedy for one woman to bear. Happily, her two daughters from the second marriage lived to ripe old ages, including one who passed the 100-year mark. -- Submitted by Shelby Ruch

ADDENDA - Excert from the Mason Genealogy, by Mary E. Mason, 1911 (pg. 237) Letter & map from Cap. Mason to Mrs. Mason, dated Shiloh, Sunday evening, April 27, 1862. ----- "I presume Mrs. Porterfield and Both [should be spelled Booth] and friends are nearly crazy with their loss. I truly sympathize with them and hope no more of my boys will have to be sacrificed upon the alter of liberty. But God himself only knows what is in store for us. Some of my boys are very sick. I have two quite sick. Corporals Dougherty and Clindinst; each with camp fever. I hope they will get along. My boys had rather die fighting the enemy than to died with disease****We are expecting another bout with the enemy again soon, but I do not think it probable that we in our broken condition will be in advance. There are now many Regiments in our advance. The pickets are having frequent bouts with the enemy's pickets.*****

N. B. -- We were ordered to go out Sunday morning and from upon the dotted line touching the old field. We formed and marched down the Corinth road to the bridge. Co. B. was then ordered out as skirmishers and I deployed as far as double dotted line. Before getting my men fairly deployed the enemy were in rouse we were ordered to fall back this side of creek points G. B. and O. (G. B., George Booth was killed) from this position we, Co. B. engaged them and the Reg. marked 77th O. fell back and formed at that point and son engaged them. Co. B. fought every inch of the ground, from new line to gully, without any running, let people say what they will, and too under a galling fire of shot, shell, grape and musketry before getting up to the gully. Many of my boys were wounded on this very ground. Wendlan and Davis, I think of now. A battery of 4 guns answered the enemy's fire and we were ordered to form in head of gully and sustain the battery which we did. Our 40 rounds were expended and we got more and we have not run yet. The enemy crossed the creek three times and was repulsed each time. The flag bearer was killed at F. They then broke and their left wing filed up the new road, giving us a fire which compelled us to retire to a line represented thus '''''. their regt. wing filed up the ravine and flanked our left, compelled us again to retire it being now past eleven oclock; having engaged the enemy from 6 A. M. and at the time our relative position to the enemy was this: [diagram of map shows the REBELS on the east, west, & south. The 77th OVI in the middle facing south - sketch of the map not shown here in this database] The small line the fragment of the 77th Reg. Again we fell back some distance and supported Batterys the balance of the day. Thus ended our Sunday fight. When receiving the order N. B. the enemy was already formed as shown nearly a mile this side with Battery within 300 yards of our tents. I was on picket the night before and some of Sunday. 2. P. M. saw heavy force of cavalry scouring the woods from our right to left. My boys were fired on about 12 Saturday noon. We at 2 A. M. Saturday morning plainly heard the enemy beating their drums on the road to Corinth all of which was duly reported and no notice taken of it, it being considered an absurdity that we would be attacked by the rebels, but you may be assured that the men of my company had but little sleep that night. Nevertheless as a body the Union troops were surprised. We fought well, but as of yet, have not received the credit due us. Some body has murder on their hands. But the outright cold blooded thing is to come yet within the facts and plans of Tuesdays fight is made out." [End of letter in book]

NAME:  Murphy, William

REGIMENT, COMPANY & RANK:  6th Kentucky Cavalry   Private

DATE & PLACE OF DEATH:  1863

CAUSE OF DEATH/NOTES:  Shot through the head

ADDENDA - MURPHY, William  (Fairfield Twp.)  This name was very hard to do research on in trying to determine WHERE he died. According to Williams' History of Wash. Co., Ohio, he enlisted in 1861 as a Private, and was with the 6th Kentucky Cavalry, died 1863, shot through the head.  According to the information provided by the National Park Service, Civil War Soldiers & Sailors System, there were 2 William Murphy's that was in 2 different 6th Kentucky Calvaries.  One was Union, the other Confederate.  When doing a search on him in the American Civil War Database, the only William Murphy that inlisted in 1861, and killed in 1863 gives this info: William Murphy:  Enlistment Date July 27, 1861;  Side Served: Union;  Service Record: Promoted to Full Corporal (Acting Color Corporal). Enlisted as a Corporal on July 27, 1861.  Enlisted in Co. I, 5th Infantry Reg. Kentucky on Sept. 9, 1861.  Killed on Nov. 25, 1863 in Missionary Ridge, TN.  There were no William Murphy's in 6th Kentucky Cavalry on the Confederate side that was killed in the Civil War. This same William Murphy is buried Section C, Site 1153 at the Chattanooga National Cem. in Chattanooga, TN.  The date of death and rank matches the one in the Civil War Database, but is listed as "Infantry" not Cavalry. (Dept. of Veterans Affairs National Cemetery Administration)  I am not sure that this is the same one from Fairfield Twp., but this is the closest match to the William Murphy from Wash. Co., Ohio that I could find.

Excert from the Mason Genealogy, by Mary E. Mason, 1911 (pg. 237) Letter & map from Cap. Mason to Mrs. Mason, dated Shiloh, Sunday evening, April 27, 1862. ----- "I presume Mrs. Porterfield and Both [should be spelled Booth] and friends are nearly crazy with their loss. I truly sympathize with them and hope no more of my boys will have to be sacrificed upon the alter of liberty. But God himself only knows what is in store for us. Some of my boys are very sick. I have two quite sick. Corporals Dougherty and Clindinst; each with camp fever. I hope they will get along. My boys had rather die fighting the enemy than to died with disease****We are expecting another bout with the enemy again soon, but I do not think it probable that we in our broken condition will be in advance. There are now many Regiments in our advance. The pickets are having frequent bouts with the enemy's pickets.*****

N. B. -- We were ordered to go out Sunday morning and from upon the dotted line touching the old field. We formed and marched down the Corinth road to the bridge. Co. B. was then ordered out as skirmishers and I deployed as far as double dotted line. Before getting my men fairly deployed the enemy were in rouse we were ordered to fall back this side of creek points G. B. and O. (G. B., George Booth was killed) from this position we, Co. B. engaged them and the Reg. marked 77th O. fell back and formed at that point and son engaged them. Co. B. fought every inch of the ground, from new line to gully, without any running, let people say what they will, and too under a galling fire of shot, shell, grape and musketry before getting up to the gully. Many of my boys were wounded on this very ground. Wendlan and Davis, I think of now. A battery of 4 guns answered the enemy's fire and we were ordered to form in head of gully and sustain the battery which we did. Our 40 rounds were expended and we got more and we have not run yet. The enemy crossed the creek three times and was repulsed each time. The flag bearer was killed at F.

ADDENDA - Excert from the Mason Genealogy, by Mary E. Mason, 1911 (pg. 237) Letter & map from Cap.

I truly sympathize with them and hope no more of my boys will have to be sacrificed upon the alter of liberty. But God himself only knows what is in store for us. Some of my boys are very sick. I have two quite sick. Corporals Dougherty and Clindinst; each with camp fever. I hope they will get along. My boys had rather die fighting the enemy than to died with disease****We are expecting another bout with the enemy again soon, but I do not think it probable that we in our broken condition will be in advance. There are now many Regiments in our advance. The pickets are having frequent bouts with the enemy's pickets.*****

N. B. -- We were ordered to go out Sunday morning and from upon the dotted line touching the old field. We formed and marched down the Corinth road to the bridge. Co. B. was then ordered out as skirmishers and I deployed as far as double dotted line. Before getting my men fairly deployed the enemy were in rouse we were ordered to fall back this side of creek points G. B. and O. (G. B., George Booth was killed) from this position we, Co. B. engaged them and the Reg. marked 77th O. fell back and formed at that point and son engaged them. Co. B. fought every inch of the ground, from new line to gully, without any running, let people say what they will, and too under a galling fire of shot, shell, grape and musketry before getting up to the gully. Many of my boys were wounded on this very ground. Wendlan and Davis, I think of now. A battery of 4 guns answered the enemy's fire and we were ordered to form in head of gully and sustain the battery which we did. Our 40 rounds were expended and we got more and we have not run yet. The enemy crossed the creek three times and was repulsed each time. The flag bearer was killed at F.

The 77th OVI in the middle facing south - sketch of the map not shown here in this database] The small line the fragment of the 77th Reg. Again we fell back some distance and supported Batterys the balance of the day. Thus ended our Sunday fight. When receiving the order N. B. the enemy was already formed as shown nearly a mile this side with Battery within 300 yards of our tents. I was on picket the night before and some of Sunday. 2. P. M. saw heavy force of cavalry scouring the woods from our right to left. My boys were fired on about 12 Saturday noon. We at 2 A. M. Saturday morning plainly heard the enemy beating their drums on the road to Corinth all of which was duly reported and no notice taken of it, it being considered an absurdity that we would be attacked by the rebels, but you may be assured that the men of my company had but little sleep that night. Nevertheless as a body the Union troops were surprised. We fought well, but as of yet, have not received the credit due us. Some body has murder on their hands. But the outright cold blooded thing is to come yet within the facts and plans of Tuesdays fight is made out." [End of letter in book]

NAME:  Scott, Howard

REGIMENT, COMPANY & RANK:  77th, Co. G   Private

DATE & PLACE OF DEATH:  Sept. 1, 1864

CAUSE OF DEATH/NOTES:

ADDENDA - SCOTT, Howard  (Ludlow Twp.)  Williams History states that at the age of 16 yrs. he enlisted on Feb. 6, 1864 as a Private in 77th regiment, Co. G, served seven mos., died Sept. 1, 1864.

     According to the Civil War Database there are 2 Howard SCOTT's enlisted as a Private on Feb. 16, 1864 at 18 yrs. old. 

     #1. Also states that on Jan. 17, 1865 he was transfered from company G to company E. Died Co. E, 77th Infantry Regiment Ohio on Sept. 1, 1864 in Tyler, TX. Was a POW. Service Record: Absent.

     #2. Also states that he was a POW on April 25, 1864 at Mark's Mills, AR. Transfered on Jan. 17, 1865 from Co. G to E Battn.  This one does not state anything about his death.

      He is also listed on the scioto.org website in Co. E 77th OVI (contributed by Carl Eash), gives this info:  Scott Howard, Private enlisted at 18 yrs. on Feb. 16, 1864 for 3 years.  He was transferred from Company G. Jan. 17, 1865;  absent, prisoner of war, died Sept. 1, 1864 in Rebel Prison at Tyler, TX.  

NOTE.....The transfer could have been in the process BEFORE word reached his commander that he had died.   I wonder if anyone that transcribed this information from the 'orginial' copy that is included in the 4 databases above ever caught this error??  The only possible answer to this is a possiblilty that the War Dept. didn't get word on his death until after the transfer.  I question this because of the time span from Sept. 1, '64 to Jan. 17, '65. (Almost 4 1/2 mos.)  They must have known he was a POW...Why would they do a transfer?
