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.!

My wifes 2 Great Grandfather was Patrick H. Mumford. He served with the 7th VT Infantry, his brother Thomas served with the 2nd VT Co. G. Thomas was wounded at the Battle of the Wilderness on 5/5/64, and is listed as deserting 12/1/64 but was later mustered out. Did his wound keep him from keeping up with his unit on their way to Petersberg in Dec 1864? I have not found any information as to the extent of his wound or where he was wounded. Does anyone know where I can obtain this information. By the way, this is the best site I have come accross whle researching other Units from other states.

We have been searching for a George G. Purdy, born in Manchester, Vt., about 1830, who moved to Iowa and married a Mary E. White in Scott County, Iowa, in 1857. I find a Civil War draft registration record for him residing in Hickory Grove, Iowa, age 34, born in Vermont about 1829. Querist is searching for his parents. Purdy was a big name in early Manchester but we cannot pin down who his parents were.

Two years ago I visited a museum in FL and saw a framed document which is the original discharge paper (signed) for Elias Edison Cox of Vermond. He was in the 7th VT Infantry. Enlisted 12/17/1861, and discharged 3/14/1866.
I have a picture of it if anyone is interested. The quality is not very good as I was using a flash. If anyone is interested I will go back and see if it's still there and I will try and get a better picture.

I am interested in men who joined the band of the 2nd. why did the band only serve for 6 months?
Admin reply: Chris,
Just about every regiment that was fielded early in the war had a band, and Congress abolished them citing the extreme number of non-combatants. Bands were still allowed at the brigade level and higher. With 30 to 50 members in each band, that meant about 450 musicians in a division, which was also a greater expense than support just combat troops.
