RE: E. Baker
Hi Janet,
Edwin Albert Baker is listed in the "England and Wales Census, 1851" which lists his mother as Emily.

He immigrated with his family to the US in June 1852.

He is also listed in the "New York, State Census, 1855" which also lists his mother as Emily.

He's also listed in the 1860 US Census where he was in Illinois with his brother, Jesse.

Edwin enlisted in 1862 with Company A of the 65th Illinois Infantry and while serving, was admitted to the hospital on 4 October 1864, and died on 8 October 1864 of dysentery in General Hospital, Atlanta, GA and was buried in the Marietta Cemetery. He was a Private.

Looking at the records, including death date and place, and burial place, this must be the headstone of Edwin Baker. There are no other E. Bakers buried in that cemetery with a death date of October 1864.

I hope this is sufficient information for you to do the update. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you!

RE: Peter Stoffel
Thank you for sending this. So great to be able to link Peter to his parents. All of the dates and names agree with what I have found. Wonderful to be able to honor a Vet and still say "thank you" for your service to someone who's been gone so long. So touching and sad to read about his personal effects --- almost puts one there at the scene. Thank you for all that you do.

I just re-read your caption note for JMF's memorial at Chattanooga National Cemetery where you say that you don't believe that the evidence to his identity is conclusive since the soldier before and after him died at Ringgold, GA. The soldier 2 after him died at CHICKAMAUGA, as did John. He was reinterred from a battlefield burial. His brother, George W. Ferree also fought with the 59th OVI, carried John off the battlefield, and probably buried him. JMF died the same day as MY great great uncle, John Marsh Ferree, in the same battle, and was reinterred at Chattanooga. MANY soldiers had battlefield burials and were reinterred, as was John. I know from an obituary of another of John's brothers, William Goldtrap FERREE, that brother George carried John off the battlefield.

Could you please delete the HEADSTONE photo for my great great uncle, John Marsh Ferree (JMF) buried at Chattanooga National Cemetery. My husband and I were just at the Cemetery, and placed an American flag on John's grave. I would like to place that photo on his memorial, but there are already 5 photos, and that is the maximum. His memorial # is 90646158.
P.S. I provided the cemetery office with documentation to prove that this is indeed John Marsh Ferree. My data will be reviewed by their historian. I am hoping that their future records will revise "JMF" to John Marsh FERREE.

RE: William Edwardses
Thanks for your reply. I have found so many instances of soldiers with the same name getting trails switched, but none as close to identical as this one!
As for you photo (E&G). If you are one of the Few and the Proud, THANK YOU; I am your biggest fan!

1850 Marion Co KY census has Andrew Tharp/Thorp at age 20, 1860 census age 30. He and brother Huston both died in the war.

RE: Jacob Baldridge
I sent her a note so I hope she responds. Has to be the same guy. The Cherry Fork marker must be a cenotaph.

Hi Janet - Thank you for finding out more about these soldiers. Every now and then I get on a tear about them. My great-grandfather (father's side) and three of his brothers served in the 70th O.V.I. so that is my interest. From the Bio, which I copied in full from Thompson's Historical Collections of Adams County Ohio, Vol II pg. 187, I would guess that he was taken to a hospital or at least a field hospital but I can't say for certain. Maybe the only way to find out would be to get his full service record from the National Archives.

On a side note, my 2nd great grandfather on my mother's side served as a surgeon in the 52nd Georgia and was at Vicksburg. He was later stationed at a permanent hospital near Augusta, Georgia. I've long thought it interesting that my ancestors serving on opposite sides often found them selves on the same battlefield.

I think I have at least one unknown at Marietta. Joseph Tener, a brother of my great-grandfather on my father's side. Find A Grave Memorial# 77218226

Thank you, Gail

RE: Hezekiah Peterson 120606472
Hezekiah's mother applied and received a Mother's Pension and I have copied documents from Fold3. Hezekiah was a cordwainer...i.e. shoemaker. It appears three of the boys in that family were shoemakers. Thanks for linking him to his parents.
