Urial Rich Reynolds:
The VA has Uriah, corrected to Usiah, Rich Reynolds on his interment form. I'm working with them to clean up their records. His marker only reads U R Reynolds, and he is buried in Loudon Park National Cemetery in Baltimore, MD - Plot A 1509.

The VA also has his date of death wrong, he died of phthisis at Camden Street Hospital on 1 Jan 1863 (though it may have been 31 Dec 1862).

fyi:
Joseph Hodge, Co. H, 1st. Vermont Calvary, is buried in grave no. 12300, Andersonville National Cemetery.

He lies alongside Private Lowell E. Hartshorn, Co. A, 56th Massachusetts Veteran Volunteers.

Sad to see that Vermont does not have a significant monument at Andersonville.

Please refer to the "Hartshorn Memorial" at the Walpole Historical Commission web site

My great great Uncle, Horace Hall, Co. E, 1st Vermont Cavalry died on the morning of May 5, 1864 near Craig's Meeting House during the Battle of the Wilderness. Would dearly love to find a photo of him. Any help you can give is welcome.

I am just trying to find out anymore about my relatives-Asa F. Mather, my Great-Grandfather, Warren D. Mather and Emmett Mather, my Great-Great Uncles. All from Vermont and all were in the Civil War. Also, I am trying to find out more about the areas they lived: Fair Haven, Plymouth and Bridgewater VT. Also, any information about Warren Mather's widow, Ellen R. Mather (Nellie). She had an Uncle Johnson according to a letter Warren wrote to Nellie while he was at camp near Berryville VA. Just trying to get a better picture of their lives. Thanks!!

I am descended from Newton Murray Fay of Williston, VT. His two brothers served in Civil War from VT and are in the listings here, although Newton himself was too young to enlist. His brothers were Emerson C. Fay (Colby) who served in the 10th VT INF and died in 1864. He is buried at the Antietam National Cemetery in MD. Another brother, ROBY N. (Nathan) FAY served from Richmond, VT also in the 10th VT INF. He is listed as "whereabouts unknown" but I do have his burial information. He moved to Sacramento, CA with his brother, Newton Murray Fayafter the war, and they resided with each other as long as they both lived in Oakland and Sacramento, CA. Both ROBY N FAY and his brother, Newton Murray FAY are buried in the Masonic Cemetery in Sacramento, CA. Their only sister, Ada FAY was married to EDGAR BARBER (1837-1909)also a veteran from Richmond, VT who is buried at the Riverview Cemetery in Richmond, VT. E BARBER served in the 2nd VT INF.

Love this site. My Great-Great Grandfather was Joseph Robbins. He was the older brother of Anson Robbins. Believe he is related to many of the Robbins from Craftsbury since he was born there also.

Admin reply: Donald, thanks for signing the guestbook. I've sent you an email about the Robbins soldiers from Craftsbury.
