From: Abington Mass
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.

I have been unable to find any battles that correspond with Sherrod Brown's (Co. F, VT 1st Sharpshooter Brigade) injury that sent him to Washington , D.C. Ironically I live less than a half mile from the Falmouth encampment and recently found he was there also.
Sherrod's brother Wycliffe Brown (Co. C 9th Infantry) was apparently killed in action at Point of Rocks VA. I know of no such place, and can not find any information on this action.
Admin reply: Richard, I'll do some checking on Sherrod, but Wickliffe died of disease (pneumonia) at Point of Rocks Hospital. Clara Barton served there during the seige of Petersburg. It is at adjacent to R. Garland Dodd Park, 201 Enon Church Road, in Chester, VA.
Contact the Chesterfield Historical Society of Virginia P.O. Box 40,10201 Ironbridge Road, Chesterfield, VA 23832, phone: 804-796-7121 for exact location of the hospital - they are in the middle of a fund-raising campaign to restore the hospital.

the auction is at Duane Merrill of vermont coming up the end of this month. They don't think it is important but the info on it is amazing. They haven't listed it separatly so I assume it will go in a batch. you can look them up by googleing aution vermont duane merrill. I wrote them and asked for it back so I could donate it, but haven't heard from them and since I have already signed a contract they may auction it off even for hardly for anything. Let me know what happens. I think it is important and sent some copies to the vermont museum, and they said it covered 4 cemetaries in woodstock area. it is a large sheet so I could only focus on parts of it and don't have a copy. I got it from a family member who's father was a licenced antique dealer in taftsville vt. in the 1920's. His last name was kelly. thanks s.K.

On May 3 in Strafford we are placing a stone in the family plot in the Evergreen Cemetery in South Strafford issued by the Department of Defense for Pvt. George Roberts , Company D, 3rd Regiment of the Vermont Infantry who was killed in action on May 5 in the battle of the Wilderness and was buried in a mass grave on the battle field and for whom there has previously been no memorial marker. I am working on an article for this weeks Herald of Randolph on the battle. While I have the names of four Strafford men killed at this battle, I would be interested if anyone knew how many soldiers died in this battle from other towns such as Randolph, Tunbridge, Chelsea, Bethel, Royalton, Sharon , Brookfield , Braintree and other area towns covered by the Herald of Randolph. Any help would be appreciated.
Admin reply: John, sent you an email with the information.

My great great grandfather was Elbridge Aurelius Stockwell. He served in Company E, wounded May 12, 1864. I am intending to tour The Wilderness and Spotsylvania May 7 and 8, which will be approximately 150 after his wounds took him out of service. Thankfully he lived. Family legend has it that his wounded shoulder bore quite a scar and limited use of one arm. He settled in Claremont, New Hampshire after the war, raised a family and lived a good life until 1919.
Thank you for all of your work on this site!

My mother's maiden name is Stannard and we are an old, multi-generational VT family. Her father was Henry Stannard. They lived in So.Dorset, VT. Reading of Gen. Stannard's courage and bravery what an honor if there was a relationship. May well be owing to the size of the population at that time. Great web site.!
