I have located a picture of Artemus C. Cross who was enlisted with Company F sharpshooters. Mustered in on
9/20/62 and died at the Battle of Wilderness on 5/5/64.
He was my great grandmother's half brother (same father, different mother) It is a tin type and would like to reproduce it to be put on the website, if possible. Not sure how to do that???

Thanks to anyone who can give me advice.

Admin reply: Nancy,

Can you scan it, or take a picture of it?

If so, email it to me, tomledoux.civilwar@gmail.com, and I'll post it to the website.

Thanks!!

Not my first visit and as earlier thanks to all contributors for an excellent site. Lots here both for history students and genealogy buffs. Through your updates I now know a) where my ancestor is buried and b) that he lacks a headstone. I am working with Veterans Services and the Cemetery office to correct this. Put a star on your chart for a good deed accomplished.

There is a Dennis Chase in my family tree. I want to determine if he is the one who served in Company C of the 2nd Vermont Infantry. A Civil War burial record that I can see at ancestry.com lists a Dennis E. Chase. I can also see a June 1863 document that is a list of persons who are subject to do military duty. This document lists a Dennis B. Chase, age 22, with a residence of Windham as "in U.S. Service" under a column headed "Former Military Service." The Dennis Chase in my tree is the son of Arunah and Roxana Chase. I do not have a middle initial. The Dennis Chase of my research is the only one I can find in the 1850 and 1860 U.S. census records for Vermont. Should a soldier who died in 1861 be listed in that 1863 document? How can I determine the parents or some other relative of the Dennis who died in 1861? I understand that enlistment papers should be helpful, but do not know if it is possible to see such records. Thank you for any help you can offer.

Admin reply: Hi Mary,

Dennis Chase appears to be the son of Arunah and Roxana. In his service record, he lists his place of birth as Jamaica, even though he enlisted from the neighboring town of Windham. Arunah and Roxana and a Charles the right age, are listed in the 1850 Census for Jamaica.

He died of disease (pericarditis - an inflammation of the pericardium (the fibrous sac surrounding the heart) in the Union Hotel General Hospital, Georgetown, DC.

His enlistment record shows simply Dennis Chase, but his death record shows him as Dennis E. Chase.

Since there was no other Dennis Chase in the service, the July 1863 registration of men eligible for the draft listing him as in the service is interesting - making me wonder how they collected the names for that listing, since obviously he had been dead for nearly two years, which should make researchers take pause and not a man listed if he died up to 2 years earlier in the service!

I'll forward you by email a couple documents, including the death register.

Regards,

Admin reply: Paula, thanks for the kind words on the site.

Status report - got birth certificates for you, your mom, grandmother, great-grandfather, and death certificate for John C. Wells, which takes care of proving you being a descendant of John.

Talked to the Wolcott Cemetery Board chairman, Harvey Reed, and he sees no problem, but wants to check with the other members of the board tomorrow, then if okay with them, will look for a spot for the marker. They use Clegg's Memorials in Morrisville for installing their stones, so we'll talk to them tomorrow.

Looking good so far!

Tom
:)

I have been researching my ancestors for years and have located them all in the Rutland area after coming over from Ireland.. Many of the original family are buried in the St Bridget's cemetery in Rutland. One of the Monahan's is John J Monahan whom I just discovered may be the one enlisted in the 1st USSS. He is buried in St Bridget's and the time frame fits .My family lived on Franklin st in Rutland. He would be my great Uncle I believe and according to your website has a biography written and in the Vermont archives. I would love to verify if he is my relation especially since I am a huge Civil war buff and didn't know that I may have relatives who actually fought. Thanks

Admin reply: Robert,

Don't know if this will help, but his death certificate says:

John James Monahan died 10/18/1910 (age 69/7/12), in Fanny Allen Hospital, Colchester, of cancer of the stomach. He was a lawyer, born in Vermont, son of Thomas and Mary McCarty Monahan, both born in Ireland.
