Being the largest cemetery in the Napa area, Tulocay Cemetery is the final resting place for many residents of Napa and vicinity who served in the American Civil War.  Over 200 individuals have been identified to date.  The cemetery is located at 411 Coombsville Road in Napa, and is still active.

The following list is essentially an online notebook of information I have gathered about the Civil War veterans buried at Tulocay.  Many of the entries have only been tentatively researched.  Obituaries need to be gathered, and service records need to be researched and confirmed.  This is very much a work in progress, so come back often to see what's new!

Oliver Miller Adams
(1837 - 1906)
Rank: Private

Biography (Memorial and Biographical History of Northern California.  1891):
   O. M. ADAMS has for the past twenty-five years been a resident of California, and for the past five years an occupant of the ranch two and a half miles from Napa, on the Sonoma road, where he has an orchard of twenty-five acres and a vineyard of fifty acres.  In the orchard are French and English prunes, two acres; peaches, tow acres; apples, two acres; and the remainder in Bartlett and Winter Nelis pear; while the vineyard comprises mostly Golden Chasselas and Zinfandel grapes.
   Mr. Adams was born in New Hampshire, in 1837, and in his youth completed a course at Amherst (Massachusetts) College, where he engaged in teaching for about four years in the public schools.  Next he was engaged in the wholesale coal trade for price, Morris & Co.  In 1862 he enlisted in the Chicago Mercantile Battery, with which he served under Sherman at the battle of Arkansas Post, in a severe skirmish on Black River, and in four other sharp engagements before arriving at Champion Hills.  In the noted engagement at the latter point he suffered a bullet would in the leg, which required two years to be healed.  About four months after receiving this wound he was discharged for disability.  As soon as it was possible, he went to work, taking the position of Chief Clerk for the First Commissary at Chicago for about two years.  He then came to California, by the Panama route, arriving in San Francisco in 1866.  First he engaged in mining for two years, in both Nevada and California; next he was a teacher in Oakland College, -- an institution afterward purchased by the State and converted into the preparatory department of the State University.  After a service there of nearly four years, he was for eleven years principal of the high school at Sacramento.  In 1884 he purchased his present home of 160 acres.  Mr. Adams is a member of the Masonic order of Sacramento Commandery, No. 2, K. T., and of the Chapter; and he holds demits, as his lodges are too distant for his attendance.  His parents were O. M. and Fannie (Stearns) Adams, natives and residents of New Hampshire.

Notes:   According to the CDI, he died 20 February 1906 in Napa County at the age of 71.
   He appears in the Great Register of Voters for Napa County as a resident of the Veterans Home in 1904, age 70.

Military Information:  Union.  He enlisted at Chicago, Cook County, Illinois, on 6 August 1862 and was mustered into the Chicago Mercantile Light Artillery at Camp Douglas, Illinois, as a Private on 29 August 1862.  He was described at the time of enlistment as age 26, residence Chicago, native of New Hampshire, height 5'10", hair light, eyes light, complexion light, occupation clerk.  He was discharged for disability on 29 August 1863.
   Oliver M. Adams applied for and received a veteran's disability pension on 4 September 1863 (application no. 32055, cert. no. 56808.  Service on the pension death index card was noted as rank Private, "Cooley's Indpt Batty Ill. L. A."

Obituary from the Napa Daily Journal newspaper, 17 March 1933, p. 2, col. 1:
P. D. ARQUETT PASSES AWAY AT SON'S HOME
-----
Deceased Was Last Member of G.A.R. Post at Home Town of Walnut, Ill.
-----
   Death claimed P. D. Arquett, father of E. M. Arquett, and well known resident of this city, at the home of his son early yesterday morning.  He had been suffering from illness since Sunday.
   Deceased was 90 years of age, and death resulted from infirmities of old age.  He had enjoyed excellent health up to the time of his last illness.
   He was a native of Port Clinton, Ohio, and was a resident of Walnut, Ill. for 53 years, where he operated a barber shop.  His wife, Mrs. Ellen Arquett, died there in 1919, and three years later he disposed of his business there and came to Napa to reside with his son, who is construction superintendent of the Napa district of the Pacific Gas and Electric company.
   Arquett was a veteran of the Civil War, the last surviving member of the G.A.R. post in his former home city of Illinois, and his father fought in the Indian War in Northern Ohio when that region was still a wilderness.
   During the Civil War, deceased served in Co. E [Co. A] of the 32nd Ohio Volunteers.  For over 50 years he was a member of Walnut Lodge No. 722, Free and Accepted Masons.  The local Masonic lodge will officiate at the services, to be held this afternoon at two o'clock at the Webber parlors.
   E. M. Arquett was the only child born to deceased and his wife.  There are four grandchildren, Mrs. Ross Hurd of Napa, Mrs. Margaret Grumbling and Mrs. Pearl Gear of Tacoma, Wash., and Mrs. Lorena Calvert of Everett, Wash.; and three great grandchildren.

Burial Notice from the Napa Daily Journal newspaper, 18 March 1933, p. 8, col. 5:

-----
   Officers of Yount Lodge of Masons conducted the funeral services of P. D. Arquett, which were held at the Webber parlors yesterday afternoon.
   Deceased was the father of E. M. Arquett of this city and was a veteran of the Civil War.  He had lived here since 1922.
   Interment was made in Tulocay cemetery, with the following acting as pallbearers:  Thomas Shurtleff, Allan Long, John Pederson, Judge Percy S. King, Charles Trower and George Anderson.

A, 32 Ohio Inf., enlisted 15 November 1863, discharged 18 July 1865.  Length of service: 1 year, 8 months, 3 days.  His obituary notes that he served in Company E, but this appears to be an error.

SUDDENLY FELL DEAD
-----
C. G. Bates Expired in the Arms of His Wife on Thursday Evening.
-----
   C. G. Bates, a contractor and the builder of this city for many years, but of late retired from business, passed away suddenly at the home of Mrs. M. McGreer, at 28 Calistoga avenue, shortly before 8 o'clock on Thursday evening.
   He had apparently been in his usual health during the day, on Thursday, but, after the evening meal, complained of indigestion.  However, he attached no importance to his indisposition, and later in the evening he and his wife went to the Baptist Bazaar at Knapp Hall.  Here he again complained of illness, and finally concluded to go home.  On their way up Calistoga avenue, they stopped in at the home of Mrs. McGreer, who was a close friend of the family.  Soon Mr. Bates went out on the porch, saying that he was feeling worse.  Mrs. Bates followed him, and he told her he thought he was going to faint.  The next instant he fell back in her arms and expired.  Dr. Bulson was immediately summoned, but when he arrived Mr. Bates was past help.
   Deceased was born in Poughkeepsie, New York, in 1837.  When quite a young man he removed to Illinois.  He was married in Rock Island, Ill., 46 years ago.  In 1885 he came to Los Angeles, and after remaining there for three years, he removed to Napa, where he has been a successful contractor and builder until about two years ago, when he retired from business.
   Mr. Bates had a long and honorable military career during the Civil War, having participated in many of the fiercest battles of that great struggle.  He was a member of Kit Carson Post, G.A.R., Napa, and of Napa Grange, Patrons of Husbandry.
   On Friday afternoon at 1:30 o'clock Coroner Brownlee and a jury held an inquest over the remains.  A verdict was rendered stating the cause of death to be myocarditis, a form of heart trouble.
   The funeral will be held at the undertaking parlors of D. C. Treadway & Co. on Sunday, November 9th at 2:30 p.m., under the auspices of Kit Carson Post No. 74, G.A.R.  The comrades of Napa Post No. 192, are also invited to be present.

Rank:  1st Lieutenant

Obituary (Napa Daily Journal newspaper, 15 June 1926, pg. 1, col. 2):
DEATH CLAIMS E. D. BEARD, BELOVED CITIZEN OF NAPA
-----
   E. D. Beard, a leader during the past two score years in the life of this community, both in private life and in business, was taken by death yesterday morning at eleven o'clock at the family residence, corner Seminary and Second Streets.  He had reached the advanced age of four score and three years.
   Mr. Beard was first taken ill several weeks ago, and succeeded in fighting off serious illness until about two weeks ago, when it became apparent he was a critically sick man.
   News of the passing of this beloved citizen spread about the city yesterday, and expressions of stunned regret were to be heard on every hand – all indicative of the regard and esteem in which he was held by the people of this community.
   Edward Derrel Beard was born in Alabama in 1844.  He grew to young manhood there and served in the Confederate Army during the Civil War, holding a captain's commission at the end of the war.  On January 30, 1867, he was married in Keachi, Louisiana, to Rebecca Inez Coggin.  The following year he and his wife came to California and to Napa.  Here Mr. Beard enggaed [engaged] in the mercantile business with the Peter Van Bever firm.  The firm changed to that of Van Bever & Thompson.  Later Mr. Beard decame [sic - became] a partner and the firm was known as Thompson & Beard.  Then as the years passed it became Thompson, Beard & Sons, and finally Winship Beard Co., as at present.  Mr. Beard was President of Winship Beard Co. at the time of his death.
   Some forty years ago Mr. Beard organized the Napa Building & Loan Association and had been at the head of it ever since.  He was re-elected President at their annual meeting held just recently.
   Mr. Beard was ever active in civic work.  He was a leader in every progressive movement started for the welfare of the community.  He was a member of the old Board of Trade and was ever identified with the Chamber of Commrece [sic].  His connection with the Napa Rotary Club was always that of an eager worker and enthusiastic booster.  As a fraternal man he was a member of Yount Lodge, F. & A.M., and of Napa Lodge, B.P.O.E.
   Ever a most industrious business man, Mr. Beard, however, was also a keen sportsman and his leisure hours were often spent along with streams and in the hills with his rod and his gun.
   He was a man of strictest integrity; of highest ideals.  He was ever courteous; he was ever generous; he was ever kindly.  One of the last of his generation, he was unusually vigorous for a man of his advanced years.  In his death Napa has lost one of her most valued citizens.
   His beloved wife and helpmeet preceded him to the other side about ten years ago.  They were the parents of five children, four of whom are living as follows:  J. E. Beard, Mrs. Inez Wentworth and D. L. Beard (now in Europe) of Napa; and Mrs. Minnie Raymond of Berkeley.  There are these grandchildren:  J. E. Beard, Jr., Stoner Beard, Crowell Beard, of Napa; Don Wentworth of Napa and Will Wentworth of Burwood, La.; Derrel E. Beard of Portland, Ore.; Miss Bertha Beard of Manila; and Arthur Beard, a student at Berkeley; and Ned Raymond and Edna Raymond, of Berkeley.
   Two great-grandchildren are also left:  Theda Marion Wentworth of Burwood, La., and Derrel Beard III of Portland.
   The funerla [sic] will be held from the family residence at 1:30 o'clock this afternoon and will be under Masonic auspices.

SORROWING FRIENDS ATTEND SERVICES FOR LATE E. D. BEARD
-----
   With his six grandsons acting as pallbearers and with the services under the charge of the officers of Yount Lodge of Masons, the funeral of the late E. D. Beard was held yesterday afternoon from the family residence with a large number of sorrowing relatives and friends in attendance.
  The services were, at the request of Mr. Beard, held outside on the spacious lawn, beneath the trees which surround the family residence; rendering a atmosphere of simplicity in accordance with a wish expressed some ten years ago by the deceased in making known his desires when it should be his time to pass from this life.
   It was at the request of Mr. Beard that the Yount lodge be in charge of the services, he having for over thirty years past been treasurer of the lodge and a great admirer of the work of the Masonic fraternity.
   Officers of Yount lodge conducting the services were:
   Harry Johnston, acting worshipful master.
   Earl Retzer, senior warden.
   H. A. Harrold, junior warden.
   W. T. Smith, chaplain.
   E. L. Bickford, treasurer.
   Thomas Townsend, senior deacon.
   Herbert R. Coleman, junior deacon.
   Ben C. Corlett, senior steward.
   Hector McLean, junior steward.
   Clarence D. Clark, secretary.
   Fred Jordan, tyler.
   Pallbearers were:  Ned Raymond, Arthur Beard, Don Wentworth, James Beard, Jr., Stoner Beard and Crowell Beard.
   After the services the remains were taken to D. C. Treadway and Company to Oakland for cremation.

Notes:  Native of Lowndes County, Alabama, born in 30 September 1844.  He was the son of Edward Derrel Beard (1804-1844) and Caroline Videau Rembert (1814-1844).  He married Rebecca Inez Scogin on 31 January 1867 in Keachie, Louisiana, and by her had the following children:  James Edgar, Inez Rebecca, Derrel Leonard, Percival Sherwood, and Minnie Mearle.  Source:  Harper and Allied Families of Perry County, AL (Rootsweb, posted by Shirley Gail Sova).  The parents died in a Typhoid epidemic shortly after Edward was born.
    Edward D. Beard died in Napa on 14 June 1927 at the age of 82, and was buried in Tulocay Cemetery on 15 June 1927.

Military Information:  Confederate.  He appears to have closely followed his older brother, James Hamilton Beard, through the war.  Edward D. Beard enlisted in Company D of the 1st Special Battalion (Rightor's) Louisiana Infantry, on 20 April 1861, at Camp Edwards, near Delhi, Louisiana.  The Captain of the company was his brother, James H. (who was one of the company organizers).  The unit was also known as the Shreveport Grays.  They were mustered into Confederate service on 31 May 1861.  Edward was described at the time of enlistment as age 17, born in Wilcox Parish, Alabama, height 5' 9", light complexion, gray eyes, dark hair, occupation clerk.  James was promoted to Major in August 1861, and Edward appears on the returns as his orderly soon thereafter.  Edward was discharged as a Private for disability in May 1862.
   Again following his brother, Edward enlisted as a Private in Company D of the 11th Louisiana Battalion Infantry on 20 September 1862 at Mansfield, Desoto Parish, Louisiana.  He was soon assigned to service as private orderly to the Major (again as an aide to his brother, Major James H. Beard, who was on the regimental staff).  The 11th Louisiana Battalion Infantry was consolidated on 3 November 1863 -- along with the Crescent Regiment Louisiana Infantry and 16th Battalion Louisiana Infantry -- to form the Louisiana Crescent Infantry.  Edward was first assigned to Company B as a Private, and was later promoted to 1st Lieutenant in Company D same regiment.  He signed the Oath of Allegiance at Shreveport, Louisiana, on 12 June 1865, residence noted as Shreveport.
   James Hamilton Beard was promoted to Colonel of the Consolidated Crescent regiment.  He was struck by a minie ball at the Battle of Mansfield on 8 April 1864, and died from his wounds.  It is said that James' brother (presumably Edward) removed the body from the battlefield and brought him home in a borrowed wagon for burial.  Kate Beard Chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy (UDC) in Desoto Parish is named for James' widow, Katherine Hoyle (Tomkies) Beard, who remained dedicated to the Confederate cause in the years following her husband's death.  Col. James Hamilton Beard Camp #1856, Sons of Confederate Veterans, was also established in Desoto Parish to honor Beard.

Obituary (Napa Daily Journal newspaper, 8 March 1910, pg. 8, col. 2):
FALLS IN RIVER
-----
Aged Veteran Loses Way and Goes Over Bank to His Death.
-----
   Aged James Boyce, a veteran of the Civil War, a man of kindly disposition and temperate habits, met a tragic death on Saturday night by drowning in the Napa river.  The body was discovered at about 4:30 o'clock Sunday afternoon after a long search by the local officers.
   Mr. Boyce had attended the Colonial social held by the Ladies of the G.A.R. Saturday night in Lucas' Hall.  He departed at about nine o'clock for his home at 13 Bush street, in East Napa.  When he did not reach his home by midnight his aged wife became alarmed and notified the officers.  A search was made for him at the time but without result.
   Sunday some marks were discovered on the steep river bank near the cream of tartar works site which indicated that some one had fallen into the water, his head apparently striking near the edge of the stream.  Geo. Cavagnaro and Louis Franchi in one boat and F. Heater in another, dragged the river with grappling hooks during the afternoon and about 4:30 o'clock found the body.  It was about 6 feet from the spot on the bank where the man's head had apparently struck when he fell into the water.
   Coroner W. S. Brownlee and Constable Secord took charge of the remains and an inquest was held on the body at 7:30 o'clock in the evening at Treadway's parlors.
   The testimony taken at the Inquest showed that the aged soldier had lost his way on account of a street lamp not being lighted on that night and had stumbled into the river.
   Boyce was a native of New Jersey and fought in the Civil War in the 32nd Wisconsin Infantry Regiment.  He had celebrated his 83rd birthday last December.  He resided in Contra Costa county in California for some time and two years ago moved to Napa, purchasing the house and lot at 130 Cross street.  Later he bought two houses and lots on Bush street, his father-in-law [son-in-law?], S. D. Radford, taking the place on Cross street.  Mrs. Radford is his only child living.  Mrs. Boyce is 70 years of age and the couple were to have celebrated their golden wedding anniversary next month.
   The deceased was a member of Napa Post, G.A.R.
   The funeral will be held this afternoon at two o'clock from the undertaking parlors of D. C. Treadway & Co. on Brown street.

   The burial service was conducted according to the ritual of the Grand Army by Chaplain Braisted [sic - Brasted] of Napa Post.  Kindly words from the ladies of the circle quieted the sorrowing widow of the aged soldier, while tender hands bore him on his way to his last resting place in the soil of the country he had fought for.
   The scene was an impressive one.  Each member of the Post bore on his breast the distinguishing badge of the Grand Army, while the wreath was borne on their hats.  The coffin was fittingly draped in the American flag.
  The pallbearers were Comrades Mason, Hoover, Clark, Wiles, Standiford and Jackson.
   The members of Napa Post feel grateful for the many kind offices rendered, and especially to those who were tireless in their efforts to recover the body.

   On May 19, William Brandt would have been 95 years old.  It was only a year ago, his birthday anniversary in 1936, that he granted an interview at his home and told of meeting Lincoln on the battlefield during an interval between main engagements.  He was lavish in his praise of Lincoln.  Mr. Brandt at the time was preparing to attend a party to be given for him by the Woman's Relief Corps, Grand Army of the Republic.  He had been appointed "father" of the Relief Corps a short time before, as their last surviving G.A.R. comrade.  The other three or four had passed away, one by one, in the preceding two years.
FAMILIAR FIGURE.
   William Brandt was a genial, friendly sort of a person.  Until the last two years, he was a frequent caller in stores, newspaper offices, and business houses down tow.  But of late, his health had been failing and the old gentleman confined himself to his home, enjoying now and then a glimpse of his son's garden and the neighbors who passed by the front steps.
   The aged Civil War veteran was born in Medford [Bedford], Pennsylvania on May 19, 1842.  He enlisted in the Union artillery as a boy of 18 and served through the entire Civil War.  He was on the battle field at Gettysburg and nearly every other main engagement.
BATTLEFIELD TO FARM
   He came to California in 1884 and settled on a farm near Sebastopol, Sonoma County.  He lived there until coming to Napa 20 years ago with his wife, Martha Ellen Brandt, who died here in 1923.  He will be buried next to his wife's body in Tulocay cemetery.
   A son, Arthur Brandt, with whom the aged soldier spent the last 20 years of his life, and a granddaughter, Ruby Gravier of Covello, Mendocino County, survive.
   Funeral services will be held at 2 o'clock Monday at the Treadway Chapel.

Alvin Lorenzo Bryan
(1847 - 1900)
Rank:  Private

Obituary (The Napa Daily Journal newspaper, 1 December 1900, pg. 3, col. 2.):
DEATH OF A. L. BRYAN.
-----
The Well Known Manufacturer Breathes His Last at Adams Springs.
-----
   Alvin L. Bryan, the well known shoe manufacturer, died about half-past four o'clock Friday morning at Adams Springs.  As stated in Thursday's Journal, Mrs. Bryan and Dr. Hennessey were summoned to the Springs Wednesday.  They attended him until he died.  The remains were brought to Napa Friday afternoon.
   Mr. Bryan was born in Sumner county, Illinois, October 29, 1847.  At the age of fifteen he enlisted in the Union army under General John A. Logan, and served until the end of the war.  Later he located in St. Louis and engaged in the shoe manufacturing business, and contributed largely in making that city one of the great shoe manufacturing centers of the United States.
   In 1887 he came to Napa and purchased the property west of town, upon which he built his beautiful home and named it "Chula Vista."
   He founded the A. L. Bryan Shoe Company, one of the leading jobbing and manufacturing concerns on the coast, which has its factory at Petaluma and jobbing house in San Francisco, and remained at the head of the business until his death.  He was in poor health for many years, but applied himself closely to business, and there is no doubt that this close application to the details of business hastened his death.  He realized this, and a few weeks ago told friends in Napa that he intended to dispose of his business interests and retire from active work, but that  resolution was made too late.
   He was a man of great business activity and ability, a public spirited citizen, and one whose death will cause sincere regret among his acquaintances.  He was a member of Golden Gate Commandery, K. T., of San Francisco, and of Tuscan Lodge, F. & A.M., and of Ransom Post, G.A.R., of St. Louis.
   He leaves a widow and two small children.
   The funeral will be held Sunday from his late residence west of town at 12:30, and at 1:30 services will be conducted at the Masonic Temple under the auspices of the Masons.

William Bunce
(1818 - 1892)
Rank:  Civilian?

Biography from Gregory's History of Solano and Napa Counties, California, 1912 (excerpt from the biography of Harry Nevins Bunce):
   His father, William Bunce, a native of Owego, N.Y., came to California in September of 1852 via the Nicaragua route and secured employment as a bookkeeper in San Francisco.  As early as 1854 he bought a tract of raw land three miles south of Napa and in 1856, having meantime married, he brought his young wife to the ranch.  However, the frontier environment of that day did not prove congenial and he returned to the more cosmopolitan surroundings of San Francisco in 1859, after which he continued as a bookkeeper for twenty-one years.  Returning to Napa county at the expiration of that time, he bought a ranch at Coombsville and settled upon the same, remaining there until he retired from ranching and disposed of the land by sale.  Next he bought ten acres on Lincoln avenue, Napa, and engaged in horticultural pursuits, developing the tract into a model fruit farm and remaining there until his death, December 25, 1892, at the age of seventy-four years.

Lewis A. Craig
(c.1844 - 1884)
Rank:  Landsman

Obituary from the Napa County Reporter newspaper, 11 July 1884, p.4, col. 4:
Death of Louis Craig.
-----
   Louis Craig, better known to the citizens of Napa as "Johnny behind the Rock," an appellation which he gave himself, died at the Napa Hotel on Saturday last.  He had been suffering with consumption for some time, which disease was the result of a cold contracted several months ago by jumping in the river to save a boy from drowning.  Craig served through the late civil war in the United States Navy and acquired the habit of drinking, which he often indulged in to excess.  He was a kind hearted, genial man, and only an enemy to himself.  It is said that he was most respectably connected, his relations being residents of Washington, D.C.  His funeral took place from the Napa Hotel.

Notes:   Native of Washington, D.C., born circa 1844.  He may be the same person as Lewis A. Craig who appears in the 1850 census in Washington, D.C., son of John H. and Mary E. Craig.  Lewis' siblings were Margaret Ann, William P., and John H. Craig.  Lewis was noted as being born in George Town.
   Lewis Craig and his siblings Margaret, John and Edmund were enumerated in the 1860 census in Washington, D.C., in the household of a tinner named James Kelly.  Lewis was listed as age 15, born in D.C.
   Louis Craig was enumerated in the 1880 U.S. census for Napa City.  He was living in a hotel operated by Carson Jacobsen on Third Street in Napa.  He was listed as age 36, occupation laborer, born in Washington, D.C. (as were his parents).
   Lewis A. Craig appeared in the 1880 Great Register of Voters for Napa County.  He was listed as a resident of Napa, age 36, born in the District of Columbia, occupation laborer.
   He died in Napa on 5 July 1884, and was buried at Tulocay Cemetery in Block 82, Lot 6, on 6 July 1884.

Military Information:  Union.  Reportedly served in the U.S. Navy through the Civil War.  Civil War naval service is extremely difficult to research, but there is a trail of Navy records that matches him closely.  Details are provided below:
   Lewis A. Craig, Landsman aboard the U.S.S. Octorara, was treated in the U.S. Naval Hospital in New Orleans for enteritis on 13 April 1864.  The Octorara was part of the West Gulf Blockading Squadron at that time.  Lewis A. Craig appears in the 4 March 1865 Rendezvous Report for Washington on the U.S.S. Currituck (serving since 18 March 1865).
   Lewis A. Craig enlisted for Naval service at Baltimore on 4 April 1862 for a 3-year term of general service.  He was rated as 1st C. Boy.  His place of birth was noted as Washington, D.C.  He was described as age 18, occupation none, eyes hazel, hair light, complexion fair, height 5' 6".
   Lewis A. Craig re-enlisted for Naval service at Washington, D.C., on 1 March 1865 for 3 years of general service.  He was noted as a Landsman, having served in the Navy for 2 years and 8 months.  His residence was noted as Highmarket, 20th Congressional District, place of birth Washington, D.C.  He was described as age 21, occupation tin smith, eyes gray, hair dark, complexion dark, height 5' 7", noted as "per order of Department."
   Lewis A. Craig enlisted in the Signal Service (predecessor to the National Weather Service) on 14 September 1870 at Fort Whipple, Virginia.  He was described as age 26, born in Washington, D.C., occupation farmer, eyes hazel, hair brown, complexion dark, height 5' 8-1/2".  He was noted as deserted 12 March 1871.  The U.S. Army Signal Service was created in 1870 (an offshoot of the Army Signal Corps of the Civil War.  Craig would have been one of the first to enlist.  Fort Whipple (later named Fort Myer) was the official Signal Corps school.
   He is noted on the late Carl Lionberger's list of Civil War veterans buried in Tulocay Cemetery.

Henry Crow
(c.1848 - 1904)
Rank:  (Civilian Attendant to Brigadier General)

Obituary (Napa Daily Journal newspaper, 12 August 1904, pg. 3, col. 2):
AGED SERVANT DIES.
-----
Henry Crow, Faithful Servitor of General Miller for Years, Passed Away Thursday.
-----
   Henry Crow, an aged negro who for many years was a faithful servant of the late General Miller, passed away at about 6 o'clock Thursday morning at his room in the European Hotel on East First street.
   His remains were found in bed about 8:30 o'clock Thursday morning by Conrad Benz, who had gone to see why Crow did not appear for work at the usual hour at the Gilt Edge Saloon.  Death was probably due to heart disease and exhaustion, as there was no evidence of his having taken any overdose of medicine or drug.
   Crow was about 66 years of age.  He found employment with General Miller at an early age, and went with him through the Civil War.  He assisted the General from the battlefield and attended to his injuries when General Miller was wounded.  He came to California and Napa valley with the General about 1869, 35 years ago.
   Mr. Crow was employed on the Miller place up to about ten years ago, when he came to Napa and has lived here since that time.  He has a cousin in Woodland, but no other relatives in this vicinity.
   Crow was last seen alive about 9:30 o'clock Wednesday evening at the Gilt Edge, as he was about to go to his room, and seemed to be then in his usual health.
   The funeral will be held to-morrow afternoon at 2 o'clock from Kyser's undertaking parlors.
-----
   An inquest on the remains was held 7:30 o'clock Thursday evening by Coroner R. M. Kyser at Kyser's undertaking parlors.  Testimony was given by E. J. Smith, C. D. Newton, B. Errington, Frank Mogford and Coroner Kyser in regard to the circumstances of the death of Crow.  It went to show that death was probably due to heart failure, as deceased had complained on Monday of pains in his side, and of difficulty of breathing when he would lie down.  The jury rendered a verdict that Crow was a native of Missouri, aged 66 years; that he came to his death from natural causes.

Notes:   Native of Missouri, born about 1848.  He was a employee of the John Franklin Miller family for most of his life.  General Miller moved to Napa shortly after the Civil War, and over a period of years acquired several tracts of the old Rancho Yajome north of Napa.  Henry Crow was a caretaker on General Miller's estate, known as La Vergne (named for the Civil War battle in Tennessee in which Miller fought).  The centerpiece of the estate was the mansion, built in the 1870's, that is now the clubhouse of Silverado Resort.
   Although John F. Miller is listed in Napa Township, Napa County, in the 1870 census, Crow and the other employees of the General are not.
   Henry Crow was enumerated in the 1880 census in East Napa Township, Napa County, as a hired man under the household of John F. Miller.  He was listed as single, age 30, black, born in Missouri, parents born in U.S., occupation coachman.
  He died in Napa on 11 August 1904, and was buried at Tulocay Cemetery on 13 August 1904 in Block 95, Lot 12, Grave #5. (Plot page 291).

Military Information:  Union (civilian aide to General John Franklin Miller).  His obituary notes that he "went with" the General through the Civil War.  General Miller served as a Colonel in the 29th Indiana Infantry from August 1861 until January 1864, followed by service as a Brigadier General in the U.S. Volunteers until he resigned in September 1865.  Henry Crow was presumably with him through the entire war.  The General was wounded in the neck at the Battle of Stones River (December 1862) and was again wounded -- losing an eye -- in June 1863 at Liberty Gap, Tennessee.  Henry Crow's obituary notes that he assisted the General from the battlefield and attended to his injuries during the war.

Biography in Memorial and Biographical History of California published in 1891:
DR. LEONARD F. DOZIER, first assistant physician of the Napa State Asylum for the Insane, has been a resident of California for the past twenty years, during fourteen of which he has held his present position.  Born in Williamsburg County, South Carolina, on his father's plantation, on the Great Pedee River, he received his primary education under private teachers at home, and graduated in 1856, at the South Carolina Military Academy at Charleston.  Graduating at the Oglethorpe Medical College at Savannah, Georgia, in 1859, he practiced medicine in that city for one year, meanwhile occupying the chair of Materia Medica in the college.  He then removed to Burke County, Georgia, where he continued in the practice of his profession until he entered the Confederate service as a private soldier in May, 1862.  After serving in that capacity for a few months, he was appointed to the Adjutancy of the Twenty-first Regiment of South Carolina Infantry, C.S.A.  He served as Adjutant of his regiment until after the siege of Battery Wagner, on Morris Island, Charleston Harbor, which was, at first, garrisoned exclusively by his regiment.  In resisting the landing of the enemy, during the first day of attack, he was seriously wounded in the right chest.  Being confined through the long siege of sixty days, in the fort of Battery Wagner, his wound developed a very severe case of pneumonia.  His health remained so much impaired that the surgeon advised his giving up the active exposure of the line for a position in the medical service, and he secured an appointment as surgeon, and was ordered to General Longstreet's command.  He joined Longstreet at Knoxville, and was with his corps during all his campaigns in Virginia from May, 1864, to the surrender at Appomattox in April, 1865.  Immediately after the surrender he returned to his native place, but a short residence there under the changed conditions of the country determined him to emigrate to California, where he arrived in march, 1868.  He commenced practice in Rio Vista, on the banks of the Sacramento River, in Solano County, where he developed a good practice and established a drug store, both of which he carried on successfully for seven years.  In April, 1865 [sic], he removed to Napa, and was soon afterward appointed to the position he now holds.
   He was married in may, 1859, to Miss Agness Bona, of New Orleans.  They had five children, two of whom survive; Dr. W. E. Dozier, of Susanville, Lassen County, and Thomas B. Dozier, of the firm of Wiley & Dozier, attorneys at law, Redding, California.  She died soon after their arrival in California.  In 1874 he married Miss Mary Dudley, a native of Marlborough County, South Carolina.  They have had three children, of whom only one is now living, John Dudley Dozier, now attending the Oak Mound School in Napa.  Dr. Dozier is a member of the Masonic Order, Rio Vista Lodge, and of the California State Medical Society.

Obituary (Napa Daily Journal newspaper, 10 March 1917, pg. 5, col. 2):
DR. DOZIER IS DEAD
-----
PASSED AWAY FRIDAY AT THE HOME OF HIS SON IN SAN FRANCISCO.
-----
Was Identified With Staff of Napa State Hospital When It Was First Completed and Filled Position Many Years.
-----
   News reached Napa, Friday, of the death of Dr. Leonard Frank Dozier, at the home of his son, Thomas B. Dozier, in San Francisco at 3 o'clock p.m. Friday.  He had been failing for some time, but his demise was primarily the result of the infirmities of his advanced years.
   He was born in South Carolina and was 86 years old the 13th of last September.  He came to California when a young man.  He became associated with the medical staff of the Napa State Hospital immediately after its completion in the early '70's, and there remained until about 16 years ago, when he removed to Anderson, Shasta county.  Of late, he has made his home alternately with his sons in Haywards, Cal., and San Francisco.
   Dr. Dozier formed a large circle of friends during his residence in Napa, to whom his genial traits and sterling character endeared him greatly.
   His wife passed away a number of years ago, and was also highly thought of here.  His surviving children are Attorney Thomas B. Dozier of San Francisco, Dr. Irwin Dozier of Susanville, Cal., and Dudley Dozier of Haywards.  There are also several grandchildren.
   Funeral services will be conducted at Cypress Lawn Cemetery, San Francisco, at 2 o'clock Monday afternoon.

Notes:   Native of Williamsburg County, South Carolina, born 13 September 1830.
   Leonard F. Dozier died in San Francisco on 9 March 1917 at the age of 80 (source:  CDI).  A family marker in Tulocay Cemetery (near the intersection of Circle Drive and Acacia Lane) memorializes Leonard and his wife Mary Dudley Dozier (1837-1903), however, Leonard's obituary indicates he may have been buried at Cypress Lawn Cemetery in Colma.  If this is the case, then the monument is a cenotaph.

FOUND DEAD.
-----
Aged Dennis Dunn Passed Away Alone In His Hovel Home.
-----
   Dennis Dunn, and aged laborer, who had resided in this city for many years, was found dead in his shanty home on Green street, between Vallejo and Jackson, near the Fruit Dryer, by Officer Charles F. Otterson about 7 o'clock Tuesday evening.
   Several other men who occupy another part of the shanty became alarmed, as they had not seen or heard anything of Dunn since early Tuesday morning.  They summoned Officer Otterson, who found all the doors bolted.  After calling loudly for several minutes, and receiving no response, the officer broke in a door and found the aged man lying on the floor cold in death.
   Coroner C. C. Treadway was at once notified, and the remains removed to D. C. Treadway & Co's undertaking parlors.
   The old fellow had been a somewhat familiar character in this city for years, by reason of his filthy appearance and miserly habits.
   Indications point to death from heart disease, and from the position of the body when found, it would seem that he was seated in a chair in the middle of the floor when the inevitable overtook him.
   He was an old soldier, having served through the Civil War as a private in Troop D, Fifth Regiment of the United States Cavalry.  He received a pension of $30 a quarter.
   His home was nothing short of a hovel.
   Deceased was a native of Ireland, aged about 70 years.
   He owned several large lots in the vicinity of where he lived, and is reported to have been well-to-do.  As far as known he has no living relatives, although it was reported on Tuesday evening that a daughter resided in San Francisco.
   Coroner Treadway will hold an inquest to-day (Wednesday).  An autopsy will also be performed by Dr. R. F. Taylor.

DEATH CALLS AGED CITIZEN
-----
C. F. EATON ANSWERS FINAL SUMMONS ON FRIDAY FORENOON.
-----
Came to Napa Forty-Seven Years Ago, After Varied Experience in Mining Camps and in Civil War.
-----
   Charles Frederick Eaton, a widely known and esteemed citizen of Napa for forty-seven years, passed away at the family residence in the southern part of town, at 9:50 o'clock Friday forenoon.
   Two weeks ago last Monday Mr. Eaton was stricken with paralysis, while visiting the Exposition at San Francisco.  Since then he has been confined to his home, gradually growing weaker day by day.  At 2 o'clock Friday morning he took a sudden turn for the worse, and failed rapidly until he passed out of this life.  Mr. Eaton's wife preceded him to the other world Dec. 17, 1914.
   Deceased was born in Quebec, Canada, and would have been 80 years and six months old if he had lived until to-day.
   In 1860 he came to Nevada City, California, where he engaged in mining, leaving there for Virginia City, Nevada, in 1862.  Arriving at this big mining center, after an exciting trip on foot through huge snowbanks, he went to work as head carpenter in the Ophir mine, having charge of the underground timbering.  He next participated in the Civil War as a soldier in the Union army, returning to California after his enlistment had expired.
   He next took up hydraulic mining, but fortune was against him in this occupation, and he was obliged to leave it, considerably to the bad financially.  However, he was undaunted by the experience, and went to Grass Valley, where he obtained lucrative employment at mill work.  Here, aided by his good and energetic wife, he accumulated enough to liquidate his debts and put him again in easy circumstances.  Afterward prospecting with good success, he finally came to Napa, where he has ever since made his home.
   Mr. Eaton was a man whose kindly and sterling traits won him many friends, who will greatly regret his demise.  The sympathy of the community, will go out to the sorrowing members of the family in their bereavement.  They are, Byron Eaton of Monticello and Bert C. Eaton and Mrs. Belle Thompson of Napa.  There is also a grandson, Mervyn Eaton.
   Mr. Eaton was a devout and active member of the Seventh Day Adventist Church, and his funeral will be conducted from that church on Sunday morning at 10:30 o'clock.

Horton, in Lancaster, Wisconsin, and settled in Lacrosse, of the same State, being connected with the Lacrosse Republican from that date to 1869, when he came to California, settling in Napa City in August, 1870.  September 28, 1881, Mr. Francis was appointed Postmaster of Napa City.  He has three children:  Mildred, the eldest, being seven years of age; Ethel, five; and George H., three.

Biography (History of Solano and Napa Counties, California, 1912):
GEORGE MILTON FRANCIS.
    Among the men who have ever stood for the upbuilding of Napa county is G. M. Francis, the pioneer newspaper man of the city of that name.  He was born in Pontiac, Mich., May 28, 1844, into the family of Sylvester and Mary Ann (Gregory) Francis, the former having been born in Pittsfield, Mass., October 12, 1805, and the latter a native of Williamstown, that same state, born February 2, 1808.  Besides George M. there were three sons and one daughter in the household, he being the youngest.  When he was a lad of four years his father died and he found a home with an uncle at Troy Corners, Mich., after he was seven until he was thirteen.  His schooling was obtained at the district school a mile away from home and this he attended when he could be spared from the work about the farm.
   At the above mentioned age George M. Francis joined his two brothers, James and Jesse, in Potosi, Wis., spending the winter with them and attending grammar school at that place.  In 1859 he became an apprentice in the office of the Grant County (Wis.) Herald, remaining until August of 1862, when he enlisted and thus surrendered plans he had made for a year's schooling at Lancaster Institute.  He served in the army until the close of the war, being with Sherman in his march through Georgia -- from Atlanta to the Sea -- and on through the Carolinas up to the surrender of General Johnson near Raleigh in 1865.  He was on detail at Columbus, Ky., at General Asboth's, afterwards Gen. A. J. Smith's headquarters; also on detail as inspector's clerk at General Mower's headquarters after the taking of Atlanta; was mustered out at Washington and was present at the Grand Review of Sherman's army in that city in 1865.
   Returning to civil life Mr. Francis started the Butler County Argus at Butler Center, Iowa, in 1865.  This did not prove a paying venture and at the end of six months he sold out and went back to Wisconsin, secured employment with the La Crosse Republican and was later made foreman of the job office of that establishment.  In 1869 he came to California and made his home in San Francisco until 1870, since which time he has been a resident of Napa and one of the public-spirited and progressive men of the city and county.  Upon locating in this city he purchased a working interest in the Napa Register, a very small weekly paper.  Shortly thereafter he bought a half interest and has since been connected with it and has built up a paying business and for many years has published the Register as a daily newspaper.
   Mr. Francis is a Republican and has taken a very active part in local politics.  He was appointed postmaster of Napa by President Arthur in 1881 and served in that capacity until 1885, when a Democratic president was elected and he resigned.  He was again commissioned postmaster by President McKinley on March 9, 1894, and was continued in that office during the administrations of McKinley, Roosevelt and Taft up to January, 1910, when his resignation was accepted and the man he recommended was appointed his successor.  Mr. Francis was appointed a trustee of the Napa State Asylum by Governor Waterman on March 11, 1889, reappointed four years later by Governor Markham, resigning the position when Governor Budd was elected.  He was elected a presidential elector in 1896, when McKinley was the Republican nominee, and as messenger carried California's vote to Washington and now holds the receipt of Vice-President Stevenson for said certified vote under the date of January 2, 1897.
   In 1904 Mr. Francis purchased the lot on which the Register building now stands and later erected the building which serves as the Register's home at a cost of $9,000.  He has always been loyal to the "Boys in Blue" and holds membership in and was the first commander of Kit Carson Post No. 74, G.A.R., organized in Napa in 1885.  He is a member of the Presbyterian church of Napa.
   In Lancaster, Wis., June 16, 1866, occurred the marriage of G. M. Francis and Miss Eliza, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George Horton, and of this union three children have been born:  Mrs. Mildred Benjamin and Mrs. Ethel Rohner of San Francisco, and George H. Francis of Napa, who is his father's business associate.

NAPA MOURNS DEATH OF G. M. FRANCIS.
OLDEST CALIFORNIA EDITOR SUCCUMBS AT SON'S HOME AFTER PNEUMONIA ATTACK
-----
Was 87 Years of Age and for 60 Years Was Editor Here; Funeral Rites Will Be Held On Monday From Local Funeral Parlors; Known All Over State
-----
   Sixty years of newspaper work and community building and an active life of 87 years was closed yesterday for George M. Francis, editor of the Napa Register, who passed away at 10:30 o'clock in the forenoon at the home of his devoted son, George H. Francis, on First street, with whom he had resided since the death of his wife in 1920.
   He was 87 years of age and had he lived until May 28th of this year he would have celebrated another birthday anniversary.
   No one in any community has ever been held in greater esteem and more genuinely admired than was this veteran newspaper editor, the dean of all his contemporaries in California, by whom he was held in highest regard.
   After having enjoyed splendid health throughout his life, Mr. Francis, in January of 1930, suffered his first serious illness, which came in the form of a sudden stroke of paralysis, followed by pneumonia, which, for a time, made his condition most critical.  He bravely outfought the dread disease and slowly recovered to the extent that he was able to be out of doors and greet his friends of the business and social world.
   About two weeks ago he became slightly ill, the illness culminating in a second attack of pneumonia and once again he was engaged in a courageous fight against that disease, but this time to be the loser -- his many years and constitution weakened from his previous illness proving too great odds for even his sturdy spirit to overcome, and he peacefully passed from this life at the hour noted above.
BORN IN MICHIGAN
   Deceased was born in Pontiac, Michigan, May 28, 1844, into the family of Sylvester and Mary Ann (Gregory) Francis, the former having been born in Pittsfield, Mass., and the latter a native of Williamstown, Mass.  He was directly descended from an old Colonial family founded by Robert Francis, who first settled at Wethersfield, Conn., in 1685.
   Besides George M., there were three sons and one daughter in his father's household, he being the youngest.  When he was a lad of four years, his father died and he found a home with an uncle at Troy Corners, Mich., up until he was thirteen years of age.  His schooling was obtained at the district school a mile away from home, and this he attended when he could be spared from the work about the farm.
WITH THE BOYS IN BLUE
   At the age of thirteen the young lad joined his brothers, James and Jessie, at Potosi, Wis., spending the winter with them and attending the grammar school at that place.  In 1859, he became an apprentice in the office of the Grant County Herald, remaining there until August of 1862, when he enlisted in Co. C, (the color company) Twenty-fifth Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry.  He had just been made foreman of the printing office when he enlisted and thus surrendered plans he had made for a year's schooling at Lancaster Institute.  He served in the army until the close of the war, being with Sherman in his march through Georgia -- from Atlanta to the sea -- and on through the Carolinas up to the surrender of General Johnson near Raleigh in 1865.  He was on detail at Columbus, Ky., at General Asboth's, afterwards General A. J. Smith's headquarters; also on detail as inspector's clerk at General Mower's headquarters after the taking of Atlanta; was mustered out at Washington, D.C., and was present at the grand review of Sherman's army in that city in 1865.
TO CALIFORNIA IN 1869
   Returning to civil life, Mr. Francis started the Butler County Argus at Butler Center, Iowa, in 1865.  This did not prove a paying venture, and at the end of six months he sold out and went back to Wisconsin, secured employment with the LaCrosse Republican, and was later made foreman of the job department of that establishment.  In 1866, at Lancaster, Wis., he married Miss Eliza Horton, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George Horton.  In 1869 Mr. Francis, inspired by the previous departure of his brothers for the Golden West, left for California and he and his wife settled in San Francisco, where he followed his trade as a printer.  In 1870, driven out to seek employment because of a printer's strike, Mr. Francis came to the Napa valley and here established his home and reared his family.
   He bought a half interest in The Napa Register, at that time a small weekly newspaper.  Shortly thereafter he acquired full ownership, later established The Napa Daily Register.
LEADER IN POLITICS
   Mr. Francis, a staunch Republican, took a leading part in political campaigns and local politics.  He was appointed postmaster by President Arthur in 1881 and served in that capacity until 1885, when a Democratic president was elected and he resigned.  He was again commissioned postmaster in Napa by President McKinley on March 9, 1897, and remained in that office during the administrations of McKinley, Roosevelt and Taft, up to January, 1910, when his resignation was accepted and the man he recommended was appointed in his place.  Mr. Francis was appointed a trustee of Napa State Hospital by Governor Waterman on March 11, 1889, and was reappointed four years later by Governor Markham, resigning the position when Governor Budd was elected.  He served for another term as a member of the board of directors of the Napa State Hospital during the administration of Governor Stephens.  One of the handsome buildings at the hospital is named "Francis Building" in his honor.  He was elected a presidential elector in 1896, when McKinley was the Republican nominee, and as messenger, carried California's vote to Washington, receiving a receipt therefore from Vice President Stevenson under date of January 2, 1897.
COMMUNITY BUILDER
   Ever active in church work, he had been identified both on the official boards and otherwise with the Presbyterian Church in this city for over a half century.
   He was an active member of Kit Carson Post, G.A.R., being a charter member and assisting in its organization many years ago.  He also was one of the four surviving members which several years ago surrendered the post's charter.  There is now but one member of the old Kit Carson left -- J. D. Smith, who resides on Eggleston street in this city.
   Mr. Francis served for many terms as a director of the Napa Chamber of Commerce and of Napa County Chapter of the American Red Cross.
   He was for many years a member of the California Press Association, serving for several terms as its president.
ENJOYS RETIREMENT
   During the latter years of his life he traveled extensively, enjoying trips throughout the state, to Honolulu and to Europe with his daughters.
   Ten years ago Mr. Francis' beloved wife was taken by death; and about three years ago another deep sorrow came to him when his second daughter, Mrs. Ethel Rohner, was summoned.
   He is survived by his son and business associate, George H. Francis of Napa; by his eldest daughter, Mrs. Raymond Benjamin of Washington, D.C., and by a grand-daughter, Miss Barbara Benjamin of Washington, D.C.
   The remains are at the Webber funeral parlors.  Funeral services will be held at the Webber parlors at 2 o'clock Monday afternoon, Rev. Josiah Daniel of the Presbyterian Church officiating.

PIONEER HAS PASSED AWAY
-----
E. S. GRIDLEY, RESIDENT OF NAPA FOR FORTY-FIVE YEARS IS DEAD
-----
   Erwin S. Gridley, a resident of Napa for the past 45 years, passed away at his home, 32 Adrian street, in this city, on Sunday morning at 9 o'clock, after a few days' confinement to his bed.  He had, however, been in a precarious state of health for over a year.
   Mr. Gridley was born in Kalamo, Mich., October 24, 1845, and grew to manhood on the farm of his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Gridley.  He began his education in the public schools at Kalamo, completing it with a course in Albion college.
   When Civil War broke his attempts to enlist were for some time futile on account of his small stature, but in October, 1863, he was accepted as a volunteer soldier in Company G, Eleventh Michigan Cavalry, serving in Kentucky, Tennessee and West Virginia, and later with the Eighth Veteran Reserve Corps, which was guarding prisoners at Chicago.  He witnessed the passage of the remains of President Lincoln through Chicago, on their way to Springfield, Illinois, where they were interred.  After being mustered out of the Army, in October, 1865, Mr. Gridley returned home and worked on the farm awhile, afterward engaging in mercantile pursuits in Kalamo.  Here he served as Deputy County Recorder, Notary Public and Postmaster.
   In 1870, he came to Napa, where up to 1877 he followed contract painting.  At that time a staging on which he was at work gave way with him, and he sustained injuries which prevented his working longer at that business.
   In 1878 he served as City Clerk and Treasurer for the term of one year.  He was next elected Justice of the Peace, serving two years, after which he was Deputy County Clerk for five years.
   He was commissioned a notary public by Governor Bartlett.
   In 1889, Mr. Gridley was appointed government storekeeper in Napa, which position he held four years, when a change of administration displaced him.  He then worked in an attorney's office, and as Assistant Journal Clerk and as Journal Clerk in the Assembly.
   In 1898 he was again made government gauger and storekeeper in Napa, and for years afterward efficiently performed the duties pertaining to the position.
   Besides his widow, he is survived by two sons, Joseph of Napa and Frank of San Francisco, and by four grandchildren.
   There is also a sister, Mrs. Chas. Burshard, who lives in San Francisco.
   Mr. Gridley was a member of Kit Carson Post, G.A.R., and of the Ancient Order of United Workmen.
   He was a popular tenor singer, and for thirty-five years sang in the choir of the Presbyterian Church.
   The funeral will take place this (Tuesday) afternoon, at 2 o'clock, from the Presbyterian church.

(1838 - ????)
Rank:  First Sergeant

Biography (History of Napa and Lake Counties, California.  1881):
   GRITMAN, CHARLES R.  Son of Samuel and Harriet R. Potter Gritman, was born in Providence, Rhode Island, December 10, 1838.  when he was quite young his parents moved to New York City, and there Charles received his primary education, and afterwards attended Yale College, graduating at the age of twenty-one.  He then was tendered and accepted the position of secretary of the Burlock Manufacturing Company, and came to Chicago in the interest of that company.  In 1865 he changed  his business and became a partner in the firm of J. A. & H. F. Griswel & Co., dealers in coffees, spices and fancy groceries, in which firm he remained until 1873.  Mr. Gritman then spent two years in Wyoming Territory, and in 1875 came to this coast and accepted a clerkship in the Bank of Napa, a position he held until January 1, 1881, and on that date he succeeded Mr. W. C. Watson, as cashier of said bank, a position he now holds with credit to himself, and with satisfaction alike to the officers of that institution and the general public.  The subject of this sketch was united in marriage July 22, 1869, to Miss Ella C. Head, a resident of New Haven, Oswego County, New York, where she was born July 15, 1841.

Biography (Memorial and Biographical History of Northern California.  1891):
   CHARLES R. GRITMAN, cashier of the Bank of Napa, has been a citizen of that place since 1876.  He was born in Providence, Rhode Island, December 10, 1838.  Attending the local schools and academy in his native place he entered Yale College in 1861, but soon enlisted in the Twenty-third Connecticut.  He remained with this regiment during its term of service, when he was employed for some time in Washington in various positions under the Government.  Engaging in business in Chicago, in 1865, his firm was so crippled by the great fire that they retired a year later, and Mr. Gritman removed to Evanton, Wyoming Territory.  After several years' connection in business there he decided to come to California, and settled in Napa, where he has since resided, and is will readily be seen is one of the most active and enterprising citizens.  He is also the treasurer of the Napa Building and Loan Association, which has been of great assistance in the erection of a large number of houses for its members.  This association is also extending its operations to the building of houses on the ranches in the vicinity.
   Mr. Gritman was married July 22, 1869, to Miss Ellen C. Head, of New Haven, Oswego County, New York.  He is a member of the Masonic order, Yount Lodge, of Napa Chapter, and of Golden Gate Commandery, Knights Templar, of Napa Lodge, No. 18. I.O.O.F., of the Knights of Honor, and of the American Order of United Workmen.  He is the Grand Senior Warden of the Grand Lodge of California, F. & A.M., and filled for several years the position of chairman of the committee on finance of the Grand Lodge previous to being elected Grand Senior Warden.

Obituary (Napa Daily Journal newspaper, 19 July 1927, headline):
Luther T. Hayman Taken By Death
Prominent Business Man Succumbs
-----
   Following an illness which at first startled the entire community and then saddened it as news of its seriousness became known, Luther T. Hayman, a pioneer and a prominent resident of Napa, was taken by death at his home, 554 Randolph street, at eight o'clock yesterday morning.
   A resident of Napa since 1882 his honesty and integrity built for him a circle of admiring and loving friends, who, through his long sickness have endeavored to make his suffering easier and to give every encouragement toward his recovery.
   Mr. Hayman has been in failing health for several years and his weakened condition as a result left him unable to cope with the ravages of a recent and more serious attack.  His immediate family had been informed of the seriousness of his illness and doubtless Mr. Hayman, too, knew of it.  But his cheerfulness was with him to the end and he passed away quietly and peacefully with his family surrounding his bedside.
   Luther T. Hayman came to California across the plains with ox teams carrying freight to Salt Lake City, incidentally driving a band of cattle to the far-away western point.  In Utah more cattle were bought and the enlarged herd was driven on to Garden City, Nevada.  There some months were spent in disposing of cattle before California, his final destination, was reached in the Fall of 1868; settled in Colusa County and there engaged in farming.    October 3, 1872, he was united in marriage to Miss Sarah L. Stone, and in 1883, with his wife and little daughter, Lulu, came to Napa to establish his home.  Here the angel of death sometime after bereft him of his loved companion, and some years later, viz: July 4, 1897, he married Mrs. Eva Stewart Hall, who subsequently shared with him the joys and sorrows common to human kind, to minister to him as only a good and loving wife can during the illness of his later days.
   To be with him and at his bedside through all the hours he was shut in by illness his wife and daughter, Lulu, were ever present to make effective the family doctor's prescription and bring rays of sunshine into otherwise dreary hours.  He was in a semi-conscious state during the last moments of his life, but at all times able to recognize the dear ones about him.
   The funeral will be held from Webber's Parlors Wednesday at on o'clock.
   No flowers.
   Interment in Tulocay Cemetery private.

Dashiell.  The father was a merchant at Moore's Hill, Dearborn County, Indiana, settling there in 1838.  A biography of the father appears in the "History of Dearborn and Ohio Counties, Indiana," published in 1885.
   L. T. "Hamon" was enumerated in the 1860 census in Sparta Township, Dearborn County, Indiana, under the household of his father J. W. [Jesse W.] and mother F. C.

Military Information:  Union.  Luther T.

Haymond who served in the same regiment.  Several  key dates seem to coincide between these two.  To add to the confusion, Luther had a brother named Thomas L. Hayman, who served in the 26th Indiana Infantry.  Thomas died while in service at New Orleans on 15 September 1863.
   Luther was commissioned as 2nd Lieutenant into Field & Staff of the 9th Missouri State Militia Cavalry at "Jeff City" on 20 July 1862.  His first duty was as 2nd Lieutenant and Battalion Adjutant until 29 July 1862.  On 30 July 1862, he was promoted to 1st Lieutenant and Regimental Adjutant.  His name appears frequently in the regimental reports of the 9th Missouri S. M. Cav., especially in 1863 when he served for a time as Acting Assistant Adjutant General for the North Eastern District of Missouri.  He was mustered out "by reason of being supernumerary by muster" (age 21) on 13 July 1865.  His Missouri service record file is large (95 pages).  A brother, Lieut. Thomas L. Hayman, was also serving in Missouri while Luther was there.  Thomas served in Company K, 26th Indiana Infantry.
   Luther T. Hayman applied for and received a veteran's disability pension in California on 6 December 1905 (application no. 1343012, cert. no. 1118606).  His wife Eva applied for a widow's benefit on 17 August 1927 (application no. 1588840, cert. no. A-12-28-27).  Service on the pension index card is noted as "A 18 Ind. Inf." and "Adjutant Mo. S. Mil. Cav."  The pension death index card notes that he died in Napa, Calif., on 18 July 1927.
   He appears in the 1886 register for the Department of California, G.A.R., as Quartermaster, Kit Carson Post, No. 74, in Napa.  His qualifying service was noted 9th Missouri S. M. Cavalry.

Samuel Emery Holden
(1845 - 1900)
Rank: Private
Biography (History of Napa and Lake Counties, California, 1881):
   HOLDEN, SAMUEL E.  Of the firm of B. F. Sawyer & Co., Napa, was born in Concord, New Hampshire, February 3, 1845.  His father, Benjamin F. Holden, was for many years engaged in woolen manufacturing at that place, and was founder of the firm of R. F. and D. Holden, afterwards incorporated, and now doing business under the name of "The Concord Manufacturing Company."  Mr. S. E. Holden still retains an interest in this company, and is also a partner with his brother, B. F. Holden, Jr., in the firm of Holden & Co., woolen manufacturers of Bristol, New Hampshire.  In early life most of his vacation from school, and spare time, were spent working in the factory, by which he gained familiarity with machinery, habits of industry, and an acquaintance with wool.  He prepared for college at the New Hampshire Conference Seminary at Tilton, New Hampshire, where he was attending school at the breaking out of the Rebellion.  In September, 1862, he enlisted in the 16th Regiment, New Hampshire Volunteers, and served one year in the army under General N. P. Banks, during his Louisiana campaign.  Returning from the army he completed his preparatory course, and in 1865 entered Wesleyan University, Middletown, Connecticut, where he graduated in 1869.  Returning to Concord he at once entered the law office of Minot & Mugridge, where he remained for three years, and in 1872 was admitted to the bar of Grafton County, New Hampshire.  He formed a law partnership in Bristol, New Hampshire, with Hon. S. K. Mason, under the name of Mason & Holden, which continued until 1875, when he came to Napa.  A charter had been obtained for the Bristol Savings Bank; Mr. Mason was made president, and Mr. Holden, treasurer, which position he also held at the time of his coming to California.  The bank, without any capital, in a little town of two thousand inhabitants, in the space of three years accumulated deposits to the amount of $60,000.  In 1869 Mr. Holden married Mary E. Taylor, daughter of J. S. Taylor, Esq., of Sanbornton, New Hampshire.  One child, Hattie M., died in infancy.  In 1875 the failing health of his wife induced him to bring her to this State, but, as is often the case, the change was made too late to be of any benefit, and she died in Napa two months after leaving New Hampshire.  On his arrival in Napa he became a book-keeper for B. F. Sawyer & Co., and was also interested with them in the purchase of fleece wool.  On their reorganization, April 1, 1880, he became a member of the company.  He has devoted himself entirely to business during his stay in this State, and only allowed the claims of one institution, the Napa Collegiate Institute, to divide his attention.  He is at present a member of its Executive Board and president of its Board of Trustees.  January 8, 1879, he married Anna Smyth, daughter of Hon. Robert Smyth of Mount Vernon, Iowa, a pioneer preceptress of Napa Collegiate Institute.  They have one child, Robert, born May 13, 1880.

Biography (Memorial and Biographical History of Northern California, Illustrated. 1891):
   SAMUEL E. HOLDEN, one of the most  promising and enterprising of the business men of Napa County, where he has resided for the past fifteen years, was born at West Concord, New Hampshire, February 3, 1845.  He was educated in the public schools of that town and at the Wesleyan University, of Middletown, Connecticut, graduating at that institution in 1869.  In September, 1862, at the age of seventeen years, Mr. Holden enlisted in the Sixteenth Regiment of New Hampshire Volunteers, which served in the Department of the Gulf, under General N. P. Banks, during the first Red River campaign, and also at the siege of Port Hudson.  This regiment was sent up the Atchafalaya River from the Teche country, and took possession of Fort Burton, at the junction of the Atchafalaya with the canal, which was the means of supply, from the Attakapas country and Texas, of the Confederate force at Port Hudson.  This cut off the Rebel supplies from the west, while Banks invested them closely on the east.  But while occupying this position the Mississippi and its tributaries were very high, and the Rebels cut off the levees and flooded the whole country, thus creating a malaria which nearly annihilated the regiment.  It is said that they lost as many men from malaria contracted in those Louisiana swamps as any other New Hampshire regiment lost in the same length of time from battles and disease combined.
   Mr. Holden is a member of Kit Carson Post, No. 74, of Napa.  His father, Benjamin F. Holden, was for many years engaged in woolen manufacture at Concord, New Hampshire, and founder of the firm of B. F. & D. Holden, afterward incorporated, and now doing business under the name of the Concord Manufacturing Company.  Mr. S. E. Holden still retains an interest and a directorship in this company.  In early life most of his spare time and his vacations from school were spent in the factory, where he not only acquired a habit of industry, but also gained a valuable acquaintance with wool and the machinery for its manufacture.
   After his graduation in 1868, Mr. Holden studied law for three years with Minot, Tappan & Mugridge, of Concord, New Hampshire, and was admitted to the Grafton County Bar in 1872.  He formed a partnership with Hon. S. K. Mason, of Bristol, New Hampshire.  During his residence in Bristol, a charter was obtained for the Bristol Savings Bank, and Mr. Mason was elected President, and Mr. Holden Treasurer.  This bank, without capital stock, and in a small town of 2,000 inhabitants, in the course of three years accumulated deposits to the amount of $60,000.  He held this position until he left the State.  In 1869 he was married to Miss Mary E. Taylor, daughter of J. S. Taylor of Sanbornton, new Hampshire.  They had one child, Hattie M., who died in infancy.  In 1875 the failing health of his wife determined him to bring her to this State, but the change was too late to be of any benefit, and she died at Napa two months after leaving her New Hampshire home.  In 1879 he was married to Miss Anna Smythe, daughter of Hon. Robert Smythe, of Mt. Vernon, Iowa.  They have three children, Robert Smythe, Harold  Emery and Philip Sawyer.  They lost one daughter, Grace E., who died in 1887, at the age of four years.  Mr. Holden is a member and steward of the Methodist Episcopal Church; also a member of the Masonic order, Napa Lodge, and of Gold Gate Commandery, Knights Templar, of San Francisco.  Mr. Holden's first business connection subsequent to his arrival in Napa was as book-keeper for, and later as a member of the firm of B. F. Sawyer & Co., now the Sawyer Tanning Company, of which he is president and one of the directors.  He was actively interested in the organization and establishment of the Napa City Water Company, and is its president.  His early familiarity with the manufacture of woolen goods doubtless explains his interest in the Napa Woolen Mill, and it fits him especially for the presidency of that corporation; and finally, as a member of the board of trustees of Napa College, he has acted as its president since the death of Judge Chancellor Hartson.

Biography (History of Solano and Napa Counties, California.  1912):
   A native of Concord, N.H., born February 3, 1845, Samuel E. Holden received his education in the select schools of his home city and spent most of his vacations working in a factory, by which he gained familiarity with factory life and an acquaintance with the wool industry.  He prepared for college at the New Hampshire Conference Seminary at Tilton, which he was attending at the breaking out of the Civil war.  In September, 1862, hearing the call of his country, he laid aside his books and put off his school garb for the soldier's rifle and the "army blue," tramping, sleeping fighting, under the Stars and Stripes, an enlisted soldier in the Sixteenth New Hampshire Volunteers, in which he served one year under Gen. N. P. Banks during his Louisiana campaign.  After "muster out" he resumed his preparatory course and in 1865 entered Wesleyan University, Middletown, Conn., from which he graduated in 1869.  Returning to Concord he took up the study of law in the office of Minott & Mugridge, where he remained three years, in 1872 being admitted to practice in Grafton county, N.H.  He formed a partnership at Bristol, N.H., with Hon. S. K. Mason, under the name of Mason & Holden, continuing this association until he came to California in 1875, at that time locating in Napa.  While a resident of Bristol he was treasurer of the Bristol Savings Bank and helped make it a success.
   Mr. Holden came to Napa and became bookkeeper for B. F. Sawyer & Co., and was also interested with them in buying fleece wool.  On the reorganization of the company, April 1, 1880, he became a member of the same and devoted himself entirely to the development of the business.  He served as president of the Sawyer Tanning Company and of the Napa Woolen Mill, was a director of the Bank of Napa and chairman of its finance committee.  He was largely interested in and helped organize the Norton Tanning Company of South San Francisco, and was a director in the Concord Manufacturing Company of Concord, N.H.  He was president of the board of directors of Napa College and did much for the welfare of that institution.  As a trustee of the University of the Pacific, now College of the Pacific at San Jose, he was not wanting in interest in its success.  He was also a prominent and useful member of the Lay Association of the California Conference, and was one of the incorporators of the Relief Association organized in the interest of the Conference Claimants.  He also served in the broader Christian interest as a director of the state Y.M.C.A.  It was, however, in the local church at Napa where his faithful services were probably of the greatest worth.  For twenty-four years he was a member of the official board, serving as trustee, steward and district steward.  For many years he was teacher of the young men's class in the Sunday school.  Twice he was elected a member of the city council of Napa and no more faithful, capable, upright servant ever sat on its board.  His fellow townsmen speak of him with great respect and tell of his interest in all that was for the city's welfare.  In business circles he always had the welfare of his employees and their families at heart and during the stress of hard times, some years ago, stood financially under business concerns that were run at a continuous loss.  He was a Mason of the Knights Templar degree and also an active member of the Grand Army of the Republic.
   In 1869, the year of his graduation, Mr. Holden was married to Miss Mary E. Taylor of Sanbornton, N.H.  She accompanied him to California in 1875 and passed away in Napa on May 4 of that year.  In 1879 Mr. Holden was married to Miss Anna Smyth of Mount Vernon, Iowa.  Robert S. Holden, who graduated from Wesleyan University in 1902, is employed in the Bank of Napa; Harold E., who graduated from the University of California in 1906, is connected with the Norton Tanning Company of South San Francisco; and Philip S. is also in San Francisco.  One daughter, Gracie, died in early childhood.  Mrs. Holden is a graduate of Cornell College, Mount Vernon, Iowa, and came to California in December of 1876 as preceptress to Napa College.  She and his three sons survive him.  Mr. Holden was a Christian man who held to the principles of his faith with a quiet, firm persistency.  He ever evidenced a genuine faith, and consistent life, and a piety in the home, the church, and the world.  He died December 31, 1900, at Altruria, Sonoma county.

-----
S. E. Holden Passes Away at Dr. Burke's Sanitarium at Altruria.
-----
   S. E. Holden died at 3:30 Monday afternoon, after a long illness from heart disease, at Dr. Burke's Sanitarium at Altruria, Sonoma county.  By his death Napa loses a substantial, public-spirited and progressive citizen, one who, beside attending to the multifarious duties of his immense private business devoted much time to public affairs.  As a member of the City Council, of the Board of Trustees of Napa College, of the Board of Trade, and in other capacities he rendered valuable service to the community and he also stood high in the councils of the Methodist Church.  For about two years he has been unable, owing to failing health, to apply himself to business.  His death is a severe loss to the community.
   Samuel E. Holden was born in Concord, N.H., February 3, 1845.  He served one year in the 16th New Hampshire Volunteers under General N. P. Banks during the Civil War.  In 1872 he was admitted to the bar, and practiced law until he came to Napa in 1875.  At the same time he also held the office of Treasurer of the Bristol Savings Bank.  On his arrival in Napa he became bookkeeper for B. F. Sawyer & Co., and on the re-organization of the company in 1880 he became President of the corporation, which office he held at the time of his death.  He was also President of the Napa Woolen Mill.
   Mr. Holden was twice married.  His first wife died shortly after their arrival in Napa in 1875, and in 1879 he married Miss Anna Smyth, who survives him.  He also leaves three sons – Robert, who is at school at Middleton, Conn., Harold and Philip.
   Mr. Holden's remains will be brought to Napa to-day, and the funeral will be held to-morrow (Wednesday) afternoon at 1 o'clock from the M. E. Church.

Biography (Memorial and Biographical History of Northern California, Illustrated. 1891):
   A. J. HULL, attorney at law, has resided in California and in Napa since 1874.  Born in Johnson County, Indiana, in 1846, he was kept busy clearing up his father's and other farms by contract from the time he could set fire to a brush heap or carry the lunch to the older workers.  There were no public schools in the section till 1853; the family was large and it required the united efforts of the twelve children and the parents to wrest a livelihood from the most unbroken country up to the fifties.  In 1857 the family removed to Illinois, where he lived until he enlisted as a private soldier in Battery H, Second Illinois Light Artillery at the age of fifteen years.  His command served under General Grant until after the fall of Island No. 10, and were then transferred to the Army of the Tennessee, Fourteenth Army Corps, until after the occupation of Atlanta.  The battery was again transferred  to the Twentieth Corps and was with General Thomas during the campaign against Hood, and remained with that army until the close of the war.  He was mustered out with his command August 7, 1865, at Springfield, Illinois, at that time still in his nineteenth year, after serving almost four years, have re-enlisted as a veteran, March 4, 1864.  Mr. Hull had three brothers and one brother-in-law in the service.
   While in the army Mr. Hull had spent all his leisure moments in study, beginning with the primary branches, and finally becoming proficient in mathematics, geography, and history.  He had the good fortune during his term of service to have a comrade who was a graduate of one of the Philadelphia Colleges, and who took an interest in and guided him in his studies, and stimulated him continually to further advancement.  Immediately on his discharge Mr. Hull engaged in farm work for the purpose of continuing his education, and during a six months' course he paid for his own tuition by taking charge of the higher classes in mathematics.  After this course he passed an examination and received a certificate as a teacher, but it being the spring season and no schools open he returned to farm work until the fall.  Then he passed a second examination, and taught his first school in a district adjoining the one where he grew up.  Removing to Illinois he entered the Salem Methodist College, and by alternately studying and teaching school, or, failing to get a school, by labor at any work to be had, -- splitting rails, digging wells, working on the railroad, etc., -- he managed to acquire a liberal education, finally graduating in the law department of the Iowa State University in 1873, and was thereupon admitted to the bar of the courts of that State.  He then returned to Illinois, and by working and teaching school accumulated money enough to pay up all his indebtedness, and bring him to California.  He taught school in Napa County for a time and then commenced the practice of the law in which he has since continued.  He was for some time in partnership with Judge Crouch, now Superior Judge, later with R. Burwell, and then for two years with Judge Ham; but for the past three years he has been alone in business.  His parents were Andrew P. and Jane (McGuire) Hull, his father being of English and his mother of Irish descent.  He was married in 1874 to Miss Lottie J. Waite, of Shoreham, Vermont.  They had three children:  Lottie M., Pliny R. and Junie W.  Mrs. Hull, his first wife, having died, he was again married, September 7, 1889, to Miss May E. Stockley, a native of California.

MAJOR JOHNSON PASSES AWAY
THE WELL-KNOWN FORMER CALISTOGAITE DIES AT HIS SON'S IN COLUSA
-----
Death Due to a Stroke of Paralysis Received Only a Few Weeks Previous
-----
   The editor of the Calistogian received a telegram from C. F. Johnson of Colusa on Tuesday evening which read:  "Father received your letter he passed away at 2 o'clock today."
   Major G. W. Johnson left Oakland just a week prior to his death for Colusa, the home of his son, Charles, in virtually helpless condition.  A few days previous, he suffered a stroke of paralysis, and while everything possible was done for him he gradually grew worse until death relieved him of his sufferings.
   Major Johnson was for many years a resident of Calistoga and was one of the town's leading citizens.  Something like thirty years ago he conducted the Hot Springs hotel, then the property of Samuel Brannan, and later the Cosmopolitan hotel.  He made a success of both adventures and then engaged in the real estate business.  In this line he was particularly successful, and acquiring considerable of a competence moved to San Francisco and bought a home in the Richmond district.  After the death of Mrs. Johnson he took up his residence in the Occidental hotel.  After the earthquake he made his home in Oakland and later in San Jose, where he remained until a few months ago, when he placed himself under the care of a physician in Oakland.
   George Washington Johnson was a native of Indiana and aged 76 years.  He was a man of pleasing address, courteous and of more than ordinary ability.  He was a veteran of the civil war and he and Mrs. Johnson were the leading organizers of Governor Morton post of the Grand Army and Governor Morton corps of the Relief corps of this place.  He was also a member of the commandery of Loyal Legion [MOLLUS] of San Francisco, composed of officers in the army.  In 1886 he was a delegate from the county to the Republican state conventions that nominated Swift for governor, but he, with the other delegates from this county, worked hard for the nomination of Hartson of Napa.
   The deceased leaves a son, C. E. Johnson of Colusa.  His other son, G. W. F. Johnson, and a daughter, Mrs. J. A. Kettlewell, have preceded him to the grave.

DEATH OF MAJOR JOHNSON
-----
   Major G. W. Johnson, a Civil War veteran, formerly a well known resident of Calistoga, died at the home of his son, C. E. Johnson, at Colusa, Tuesday afternoon.  Deceased was a native of Indiana, aged 75 years.  He was the father of the late G. W. F. Johnson.

Biography (History of Napa and Lake Counties, California, 1881):

   JOHNSON, GEORGE W.  Son of Edward C. and Jane Hooker Johnson, was born in Marion County, Indiana, December 2, 1832.  He resided in his birthplace until he was twenty years of age, and received his education at the seminary of Indianapolis.  He afterward learned the printer's trade, in the Indiana Sentinel office.  He then bought the old Police Gazette of Indianapolis, and moved it to Bloomfield, Iowa, and there published a paper under the title of the Western Gazette, and issued the first copy June 1, 1852.  He continued in this enterprise for one year, and sold out and engaged in the hotel business, buying out the old American Hotel, located in the above place, and remained in this business until 1857.  He also, in connection with the hotel, run a stage line from Bloomfield, Davis County, to Appanoose County, Iowa.  In 1857 he moved back to his birthplace and engaged in general trade, keeping store in the old Bates House, of Indianapolis, and there remained for two years, when he once more returned to Bloomfield, Iowa, and bought a farm, and continued in agricultural pursuits until the breaking out of the war.  He then served in the State militia for about two months; and August 13, 1861, he enlisted in the 3d Iowa Cavalry, being elected Sergeant-Major of the regiment; and then, for meritorious and gallant conduct at the battle of Pea Ridge, March 6, 7 and 8, 1862, he received from Governor Kirkwood, of Iowa, through the recommendation of General Sigel, his commission as First Lieutenant of Co. "M," 3d Regiment; and May 3, 1864, he received his commission from Governor Stone as Captain of his company.  He took part in all the engagements and vicissitudes that his regiment participated in.  At the close of the war Captain Johnson, through the recommendation of General Winslow, for valuable services on the march and at the battles of Selma, Alabama, and Macon, Georgia, was promoted to Brevet-Major of his regiment.  Major Johnson was the first Federal officer that took possession of Hot Springs, Arkansas.  From this point he went to Little Rock, where the regiment re-enlisted for three years; and they at that time, on account of having served three years, were granted a furlough for thirty days.  At the expiration of that time they reassembled at Camp Rankin, at Keokuk, Iowa, and went down the river to St. Louis.  At the latter place Major Johnson was appointed inspector of cavalry horses, and transferred to Indianapolis, and remained there one month, inspecting horses for Sherman's cavalry.  From there he joined his regiment at St. Louis, and proceeded to Memphis, Tennessee.  He left Memphis December 23, 1864, and went to Louisville to join an expedition that was fitting out under General Wilson, to go up the Columbia River to Gravelly Springs, and they had some severe engagements on their route.  When peace was declared, he was appointed as citizen commissary of the State of Georgia, with headquarters at Atlanta, arriving there May 6, 1865, where it was his duty to issue rations to the destitute poor of the State.  This important position he held for three months.  At the end of that time he was ordered to Davenport, Iowa, where, August 19, 1865, after a meritorious and honorable career as a soldier, he was discharged.  During his long term of service, Major Johnson was only once wounded.  He at once returned to Bloomfield, Iowa, and immediately sold his ranch and moved to Corvallis, Oregon, and engaged in the hotel business.  Remaining there only a short time, he moved to Portland, and from thence to Calistoga, and became proprietor of the Cosmopolitan Hotel of that place, and run this hotel for three years.  He then took charge of the famous Calistoga Hot Springs Hotel, and afterward sold it for the Sacramento Bank to Colonel Tichenor.  He then moved to his present beautiful place of twenty acres situated in the town of Calistoga, and is enjoying the remembrances of a well-spent life.  The subject of this sketch was married to Miss Mary E. Kittleman, who was born in Indianapolis February 1, 1833.  By this union they have three children:  Geo. F., born April 12, 1853; Charles E., born February 8, 1856, and Annie L., born September 22, 1865.

William Wallace "Wall" Kennedy
(1833 - 1900)
Rank:  Private
Excerpts from Gleanings, Vol. 4, Number 5, published by the Napa County Historical Society in November 1995:
[page 3, Civil War service]
   With Annie and a month-old daughter safely removed to Brownsville, Nebraska, Wall joined a pro-Union militia company out of Buchanan County that participated in the Battle of Wilson's Creek, just south of Springfield, Missouri on August 10, 1861.  The hastily-gathered Union troops were given a sound thrashing.  Among the estimated 223 Union soldiers who were wounded, Wall Kennedy took a Confederate rifle ball through the right thigh.
   Kennedy recuperated in Nebraska but was galvanized back to the blue-clad ranks by the brief capture of Independence, Missouri on August 11, 1862 by the freebooting Confederate guerillas led by William Clark Quantrill.  Within days of the raid, Wall was deployed to the Thirty-Fifth Missouri Volunteer Infantry Regiment.
   He served for nine months and was among the Union troops under General Ulysses S. Grant that fought across Mississippi in April and May 1860, cutting the Confederate forces in half.  The Union Army's drive stalled before the Mississippi River port of Vicksburg and the city was under siege until it fell on July 4, 1863.  Early in the siege Wall was wounded in the head and shoulder.
   His combat injuries knocked him out of the rest of the Civil War.  Upon recovering, he got his discharge, rejoined his wife and daughter in Nebraska, and, in 1864, migrated west for the last time.
[page 11, a tall tale about Vicksburg]
   Proud of his service to the Union in the Civil War, Wall was an active member of Napa's Kit Carson Post of the Grand Army of the Republic.  When General Grant's forces pulled up before Vicksburg, as has been mentioned, the Union troops encountered stiff resistance and were unable to immediately take the city.  Wall said that General Grant was gravely depressed over the impasse and seemed ready to give up the fight.
   "Grant called the Army together to announce the retreat," Kennedy declared.  "But when he was just ready to make the announcement with tears streaming down his face into his beard, the General saw a ray of hope.  'Is Wall Kennedy still with the Army?' he called out.  "Yes, General,' I answered, stepping out from the ranks.  'Well then, let the battle go on!' Grant cried, recovering his composure."
  Due to the actual head wound that he suffered at Vicksburg, Wall gradually lost sight in his left eye.  Yet he blithely insisted that his other was a 'telescopic' eye and just as good as half a dozen ordinary peepers.

Obituary from the Napa Daily Journal newspaper, 8 July 1900, page 3, col. 2:
LIFE'S JOURNEY ENDS.
-----
and Prisoners' Guard William Wallace Kennedy Succumbs to Disease.
-----
   Wall Kennedy is no more.  For twenty-one years he served this city faithfully and efficiently as Prisoners' Guard, cleaning and building streets and gutters, flushing the sewers, and doing whatever else came to is hand as chief of the chain gang.
   The community will miss Wall, not alone on account of his well performed official duties, but also because of his unique personality.  "Old Desperate's" stories have served to enliven many a gathering, have set "Laughter holding both his sides" on many an occasion, and his quaint philosophy has pointed many a moral and adorned many a tale.
   Though the charm of his stories consisted largely in his own inimitable manner of relating them and many of them bore a local flavor, there were some that found their way into the prints of other communities, even as far distant as the Atlantic coast, and one, the story of driving a swarm of bees across the plains, was published in the London Times and in one of the Paris papers.
   Though he walked in an humble sphere, he sought and attained the noblest object of his life, that of affording happiness to others.  In his family circle he was the personification of gentleness.  Among his acquaintances – and they were numberless – he was good nature and kindness itself.
   He took a personal pride in the appearance of the streets of the city, and they are a handsome monument to his industry and ingenuity.  Even in the delirium of his last illness his thoughts were upon his loved labor.
   He always took a lively interest in the welfare, spiritual as well as physical, of the prisoners in the county jail, and was their friend, confidante and adviser.  He was a firm believer in the efficiency of moral 'suasion and had no faith in the doctrine of total depravity.  He sought the good traits in every character, and his confidence was seldom misplaced.
   He was a part of the town.  He filled a niche in the community that must hereafter be vacant.  He was everybody's friend, from the youngest to the oldest.  In the line of duty he thought only of the public weal[th].  His personal comfort or welfare was not considered.  It was this fact that caused his death.  "Greater love hath no man than that he lay down his life for his friends."
   William Wallace Kennedy was born in Indiana, December 10th, 1833.  In 1846 he went as a teamster to Santa Fe.  He then settled in Buchanan county, Mo., where he remained with his brother on a farm for one year.  In the spring of 1849 he returned to Indiana and purchased cattle and an outfit and came across the plains to California, arriving in September.  He mined for six years at Spanish Ravine in El Dorado county, and in 1857 came to Napa county, and worked for the late Dwight Spencer for two years.  In 1859 he returned to Indiana and a few months later went to Missouri and purchased a farm.  In August, 1862, he enlisted in the 35th Missouri Volunteer Infantry, and served nine months.  At the battle of Springfield he was wounded, on account of which disability he received his discharge from the service.  In 1864 he returned to California.  His first wife, who was a sister of the late John Hogan, died in 1879.  Their children are Mrs. Burt Switzer, Mrs. Chas. Harren, Andrew and Albert.
   He afterward married Mrs. Dennison, who survives him.  He also leaves several grandchildren and a stepdaughter, in whom he took a kind and fatherly interest.
   The funeral will be held at 4 o'clock this afternoon from the family residence on Stockton street.

GOLDEN WEDDING
-----
Mr. and Mrs. E. H. King Celebrated Fiftieth Anniversary of Their Marriage, on Friday
-----
   Rev. and Mrs. Ensign H. King, a worthy and much-loved couple who have resided in this community for 43 years, celebrated the fiftieth anniversary of their wedding at their home on Oak street, this city, on Friday.
   There was a family reunion and dinner at the noon hour, at the family home, at which there were present the children and several of the grandchildren of the aged couple.
   During the afternoon an informal reception was held, at which the golden wedding celebrants were kept busy receiving the congratulations and best wishes of the hosts of friends who called.
   Mr. King served as Adjutant of the Fifteenth Ohio Infantry during the Civil War, and was born January 28, 1838.  He was the son of Maurice B. King and Matilda R. King.
   Mrs. King was the daughter of Lyman M. Wilson and Mary C. Rissler, and was born February 26, 1845.  Mr. and Mrs. King were married at Osceola, Iowa, March 27, 1864, while Adjutant King was on furlough.  Rev. H. B. Heacock performed the ceremony.  Mr. Heacock is now in San Francisco and expected to be present on this happy occasion, but illness prevented, so he sent a beautifully worded letter of congratulation.
   The children of Mr. and Mrs. King are Percival S. King of Napa, Lyman M. King of Pasadena, Rev. George C. King of Pasadena, and Mrs. Mary King Harris, of Napa, all of whom were in attendance except Mrs. Harris, who was unable to be present on account of illness.
   There are twelve grandchildren.
   In the evening Mr. and Mrs. King were tendered a reception in the lecture room of the M. E. Church by the members, they having been connected with that denomination all their lives.  A programme befitting the occasion had been arranged by the pastor, Rev. C. A. Richardson.
   The first number was a solo by that favorite contralto singer, Miss Jessie Corlett, which was encored.
   Rev. Richard Wylie, in his usual happy way, voiced the good wishes and congratulations of those present, his talk touching both the humorous and the pathetic.
   Mr. L. J. Norton followed, on behalf of the Official Board of the church, and spoke well and feelingly of Mr. and Mrs. King's work in the church.
   Miss Janet Maclay recited "That Old Sweetheart of Mine," by James Whitcomb Riley, the wizard of American poesy.  She did it so well that the audience insisted on hearing her again, and she gratified them with another poem by the same author.
  Mrs. Laura Sargent, of New York, enchanted everybody with her beautiful ...

COMMUNITY MOURNS GOOD MAN
-----
REV. E. H. KING PASSED AWAY AT HOME THURSDAY MORNING.
-----
Demise Followed Attack of Pneumonia – Deceased Had Been Resident of Napa County for 37 Years – Widely Beloved.
-----
   A good, kindly, broad-minded man passed out of this community's life at 10:30 o'clock Thursday morning, when Rev. E. H. King, a resident of Napa county for the past 37 years, breathed his last at his home on Oak street.  His many friends here will sadly miss his presence among them.  Like a shock of corn fully ripe, he was ready to go and was able to look back on a long life well spent.  So he "wrapped the drapery of his couch around him and lay down to pleasant dreams."
   Mr. King was seized by the grip a week ago Wednesday, which last Sunday developed into pneumonia.  Owing to his advanced years, he was unable to withstand the inroads of the disease, and answered the last call at the hour noted above.  He displayed great fortitude and patience during the entire period of his illness.
   Mr. King was a native of Pennsylvania and was 80 years old last January.  He came to California in 1874, and as a Methodist preacher, filled appointments at Auburn, Dutch Flat and other places.  In 1881 he came to Napa county, and first filled the pulpit at St. Helena for some time, afterward going to Sonoma and Vallejo.  About 30 years ago he retired from the ministry.  From 1892 to 1897, he occupied the position of Secretary of the Napa State Hospital.  Afterward he took up the business of insurance in Napa, in which he was engaged up to the time of his last illness.
   At the time of the beginning of the Civil War, Mr. King was a student at Cornell University.  He answered his country's call and joined the Union army in 1861, continuing in the service until he was honorably discharged in 1865.  He was several times promoted for gallantry in action, going from the ranks to the position of Adjutant.  During that time he was ordained as a minister, and for some time filled the position of chaplain.  He took part in many battles of the great struggle, and always bore himself with bravery.
   Besides his widow, deceased is survived by three sons, Hon. Percy S. King, Lyman M. King and Rev. Geo. C. King, the two latter now in service in France, and by a daughter, Mrs. Mary M. Harris, of Napa.  There are also 12 grandchildren and one great-grandchild.
   Mr. King was a member of Kit Carson Post. G.A.R. and for many years served as its Chaplain.
   The funeral will take place from the Methodist Church to-morrow (Saturday) afternoon, at 2:30 o'clock.

Funeral of J. P. Martin
-----
   Ed. Journal – The comrades of the G.A.R. and W.R.C., numbering 71 and 49, respectively, met in D. S. Kyser's undertaking parlors at 2 p.m. Sunday, to pay their last tribute of respect to their departed comrade, John P. Martin.
   The services held were according to the ritual of the G.A.R., and were conducted by Commander Woods and Chaplain Braisted [sic].
   Comrade Martin was certainly endowed with a full measure of the cardinal virtues of the G.A.R., viz: Charity, Fraternity and Loyalty, and was not much lacking in the details of the minor ones.
   The wealth of beautiful flowers that surrounded the bier on which the deceased comrade reposed, showed the esteem in which the late comrade and his mourning wife, Antoinette Martin, were held.
  Not the least impressive of the ceremonies was the improvised singing of "Nearer, My God, to Thee," and other beautiful hymns.  The choir was led by Mrs. Maud Easterly.
   John P. Martin was born in Burdette, New York State, April 26, 1844.  When but 17 years old he enlisted in the Union army and was severely wounded at the second battle of Bull Run, being obliged to use crutches for two years.
   Mr. Martin came to California in 1870, and had resided in Napa county since 1901.  The body of Mr. Martin was sent to San Francisco early Monday morning, where it will be cremated.
   "Fold him in his country's stars,
Roll the drum and fire the volley.
What to him are all our cares?
What? But death be mocking folly.
Lay him low, lay him low,
In the clover or the snow.
What care he?  He cannot know,
Lay him low."
T. J. D.   Napa, April 20, 1914.

Notes:   Native of Burdette, New York, born 26 April 1844.  John reportedly moved to California about 1870
   He married Antoinette Levetag circa 1892, and probably moved to the Napa Valley about that time.  His wife owned property north of Calistoga (adjoining my own residence - D.A.E.), purchased in 1891.  Antoinette and John sold the property jointly in 1909, and took up residence in Napa around 1901.
   John P. Martin was enumerated in the 1900 census in Hot Springs Township (Calistoga), Napa County, living on his ranch north of town.  His neighbors, Charles W. Lane, Thomas F. Veale and Daniel M. Bentley were also Civil War veterans.  John was listed as married (8 years), age 56, born April 1844 in New York, parents both born in New York, occupation farmer.  His household included his wife Antoinette, born February 1856 in Germany (immigrated 1869, no children).
   John P. Martin was enumerated in the 1910 census in Napa (Ward 4), Napa County, living on East First Street.  He was listed as married (first marriage, 18 years), age 65, born in New York (as were his parents), occupation (illegible).
    John died in Napa on 16 April 1914, and was buried in the G.A.R. Plot (Lot 26, Block 82), Tulocay Cemetery, Napa.  The CDI notes that John P. Martin died in Napa County on 16 April 1914 at the age of 69.

Military information:  Union.  John P. Martin enlisted as a Private at Elmira, New York, on 20 July 1862, and was mustered into Company E of the 107th New York Infantry on 22 July 1862.  His obituary states that he fought in the second battle of Bull Run (Aug. 28 to 30, 1862), and that he was severely wounded.  About that time, a note appears in his service record that he deserted (probably wounded and unable to report for duty).  He was listed as sick on hospital on 15 September 1862.  The first battle in which the 107th fought was at Antietam (September 17th), so John may have been on detached duty at the time he sustained his wounds.  His obituary notes that he was disabled and on crutches for two years.  On 15 February 1864, he was mustered into Company C of the 8th New York Light Artillery regiment.
   John P. Martin applied for and received a veteran's disability benefit in California (application no. 77716, cert. no. 190036), dated 15 July 1865.  Service noted on the pension index card was:  "C 8 N.Y. H.A." and "E 107 N.Y. Inf."
   John P. Martin was a member of Calistoga's Gov. Morton Post, No. 41, in the late 1890's where he served as Sr. Vice-Commander in 1895, Post Commander in 1896, and Post Surgeon in 1898 and 1899.  He was also a member of Napa Post, No. 192, where he also reportedly served as Post Commander.  His name appears on the memorial obelisk in the G.A.R. section of Tulocay Cemetery.
   He is noted in the late Carl Lionberger's list of Civil War veterans buried in Tulocay Cemetery.

   Alice Lea, daughter of James Henry and Ellen (Campbell) Lea, was born February 26, 1845, in Alton, Illinois, and died October 28, 1883, in Atchison, Kansas.
   James Henry Lea was born December 19, 1808, in Philadelphia, Pa., and died June 4, 1890, in Atchison, Kansas.
   Ellen (Campbell) Lea was born February 26, 1820, in Shippenburg, Pa., and died March 25, 1874, in Atchison, Kansas.
   William Hathaway McNeil and Mary G. Sherwood were married July 15, 1886, at St. Joseph, Missouri.
   Mary G. Sherwood, daughter of William Marshall and Charlotte C. (Hall) Sherwood, was born April 18, 1854, in Wilmington, North Carolina.

Notes:   Native of Schuylerville (near Saratoga), New York, born 10 February 1842.  He was the son of James McNeil (1812 - 1886) and Susan Bowen Hathaway (1817 - 1854).  In a passport application, dated 26 February 1900, William was physically described as follows:  Age 58, height 6' 1/2", forehead high, eyes hazel, nose medium, mouth with mustache, chin oval, hair black with gray, complexion light, face oval.  A carte-de-visite photograph of him wearing his infantry uniform exists.
   According to the 1907 biography (a portion of which is transcribed above), William's father, James McNeil, arrived in San Francisco on 10 October 1849 aboard the bark Sir Walter Scott from New York.  William's mother, Susan Bowen Hathaway McNeil arrived in San Francisco on 10 October 1852, having journeyed with William and his sister Anna aboard the ship John Quincy Adams from New York.  Susan died in Napa on 31 October 1854.  William's sister Anna died 31 December 1862.
   William's whereabouts in California in 1860 are uncertain.  His father James, step-mother Ellen, and sister, Annie, were enumerated in Sacramento (North Ward) that year.
   Wm. McNeil was enumerated in the 1870 census in San Francisco (7th Ward), under the household of his father, James McNeil.  William was listed as age 29, born in New York, occupation miner.  James was listed as age 48, born in New York, occupation clerk in warehouse, personal estate valued at $1,000.  Also in the household was Ellen McNeil, age 39, native of Vermont (William's step-mother).
  William moved to Kansas in the 1870's and settled for a time in Atchison, Atchison County.
  According to his 1907 biography, William married Alice Lea (daughter of James H. and Ellen Lea) in Atchison on 19 February 1879.  The two were enumerated in the 1880 census in the City of Atchison (2nd Ward), Atchison County, Kansas.  William H. McNeil was listed as married, age 38, born in New York, father born in New York, mother born in Massachusetts, occupation Coal Dealer.  Alice McNeil was listed as married, age 33, born in Illinois, parents both born in Pennsylvania.  William's father, Jas. McNeil, was still living in San Francisco in 1880, listed as age 58, native of Scotland, occupation "empl. savingsbank."  His household included his wife Ellen (William's step-mother), age 44, native of Vermont, as well as four boarders and two servants.
   Alice (Lea) McNeil died in Atchison on 28 October 1882 (according to the biography).  William remarried about four years later.  His second wife was Mary G. Sherwood, daughter of William M. and Charlotte (Hall) Sherwood.  They married at St. Joseph, Missouri, on 15 July 1886.
  William appears to have returned to California shortly after the marriage, probably to handle the affairs of his father who had died in April of that year.  William joined Lincoln Post, No. 1, G.A.R., in San Francisco, and was listed as a member of the post in the 1886 roster, living at 2211 Van Ness Avenue.  In 1888, he was still living in San Francisco, and had risen in G.A.R. circles to the rank of Special Aide-de-Camp in the Department of California.  In a passport application dated 26 February 1900, William H. McNeil declared that his permanent residence was San Francisco.  By 1907, he had returned to St. Joseph, Missouri, where he and his wife Mary lived the remainder of their lives.
   William H. McNeil was enumerated in the 1910 census in the City of St. Joseph (Ward 2), Washington Township, Buchanan County, Missouri, living on N. 19th Street.  He was listed as married (24 years), age 69, born in New York, father born in New York, mother born in Massachusetts, occupation retired.  His household included his wife Mary S. (age 55, born in NC, father born in VT, mother born in CT).  Also living in the household were William H. Dyer (age 59, born in MO), Dyer's wife Ella S. (age 48, born in MO), Martin K. Sherwood (Mary McNeil's brother, age 64, born in NC), and a servant named Edna Mathias.  Ella Dyer was a sister to Mary McNeil.  According to her 1928 death certificate, she was the daughter of Willis [William?] M. Sherwood and Charlotte C. Hall.
  William McNeil was enumerated in the 1920 census still living in St. Joseph, Missouri.  He and his wife Mary were living in a subhousehold under the household of William Dyer (age 69, born in ME), located on North Nineteenth Street.  William McNeil was listed as married, age 75, born in New York, father born in New York, mother born in Massachusetts, occupation none.  Mary was listed as age 60, born in South Carolina, father born in Vermont, mother born in New York.  Mary's brothers, David Sherwood (age 60) and M. K. Sherwood (age 72), were living in the same household.
   According to his veterans pension index card, William H. McNeil died 24 August 1920 in St. Joseph, Missouri.  His widow applied for a benefit on 21 September 1920.  His death certificate notes the cause of death as paralysis agitans [Parkinson's disease], complicated by acute Bright's disease.  His remains were handled by Ashland Cemetery in St. Joseph.
   Judging from the death certificates, it appears that both William H. McNeil and his second wife Mary are buried at Ashland Cemetery in St. Joseph, Missouri.  Cemetery transcriptions for Ashland Cemetery confirm that William and Mary McNeil are indeed buried there.  At Tulocay Cemetery, and inscription on the family monument reads:  "WILLIAM | H. McNEIL | Calif. 100 - 2nd | Mass. Cav. | 1842-1920"  The monument (an obelisk) memorializes William's father, mother, step-mother, sister and half-brother.  The inscription relating to William is most likely a cenotaph.

Military information:  Union.  Member of the "California 100," which was a celebrated company of California men who joined the 2nd Massachusetts Cavalry.  "William H. McNeil" enlisted as a Private on 4 November 1862 at the age of 21, and was mustered into Co. A of the 2nd Massachusetts Cavalry on 10 December 1862.  His residence at the time of enlistment was San Francisco.  He was promoted to Corporal during his term of service.  He was discharged on 26 June 1865, per General Order #326, dated 23 June 1865.
  McNeil (like Charles P. Briggs, listed above) was one of 40 signatories in a post-war letter to the Adjutant General of the State California, dated 20 July 1865, which accompanied two flags returned by the California 100 to California.  The flags are still preserved in Sacramento.
  W. H. McNeil was listed as a member of San Francisco's Lincoln Post, No. 1, G.A.R. in the Register of the Department of California for 1886.  His service was noted as Co. A, 2 Mass. Cav., and his residence was listed as 2211 Van Ness Avenue.
   William H. McNeil applied for and received a veteran's disability pension on 2 July 1892 (application no. 1119326, cert. no. 850617).  His wife applied for a widow's benefit on 21 September 1920 (application no. 1163635, cert. no. 904445).  Service on the pension death index card was noted as Corporal, Co. A, 2 Mass. Cav.  The index card notes that McNeil died 24 August 1920 in St. Joseph, Mo.

Obituary from the Napa Daily Journal newspaper, 8 November 1903, page 3, col. 2:
DEATH OF COLONEL PEASE
He Served With Distinction During the Civil War, Rising from the Grade of Private.
-----
   After several months of intense suffering, Col. Henry Pease passed peacefully away Saturday, just before noon, at his home on Franklin street.
   Col. Pease was born in Springfield, Mass., and was 72 years of age.  When the Civil War broke out he was in business in Chicago, and was First Sergeant of the Chicago Light Guard, commanded by Capt. Geo. B. McClellan, who was afterward General in Chief of the Army.  In May, 1861, he enlisted as a private in Co. E, 23rd Ill. Vol. Inf.  When the regiment left Chicago, June 15th, 1861, he was Second Lieutenant.  Within sixty days he was Captain.
   Major General J. C. Fremont was in command of the Department of Missouri and was authorized by the President to commission such officers as he might think competent in command.  When the 23rd reached Jefferson City General Fremont commissioned Captain Pease Colonel of Volunteer Infantry and assigned him to organize men then assembled at the capital.
   On the arrival of General J. C. Davis, who took command, he assigned Col. Pease to duty on his staff, and he served with him through the Missouri campaign that ended at Pea Ridge in March, 1862.
   The command was then ordered south to Buell's army, arriving at Shiloh in time to participate in the second day's fighting.  They were also engaged at Corinth and Iuka, made the memorable march to Louisville and back to Nashville, and participated in all the engagements in which the army of the Cumberland was engaged, ending at Stone River.
   After this engagement General D. S. Stanley, commanding the cavalry corps of the army, made a personal request of Governor Andy Johnson, backed by the endorsement of Generals Rosecrans, Thomas, Sheridan, McDowell, McCook and Davis, to make Col. Pease Colonel of the Second Tennessee Cavalry, but politics overcame their efforts and he was ordered by the War Department to Virginia.  There he served with General B. F. Kelly until mustered out for disability, after nearly four years' continuous service.
   Colonel Pease came to Napa about eighteen years ago and engaged in the real estate and insurance business.  He was at one time manager of the Palace Hotel in Napa.  For several years past, and until sickness incapacitated him, he was Health Officer of the City of Napa.
   Col. Pease was a gentleman of the old school, dignified, courteous, honorable.  He faced death unflinchingly on the battlefield, and as his last days approached accepted the inevitable with fortitude, his only sorrow being the thought of separation from his devoted wife.
   The funeral will be held Monday morning at 10:30 from St. Mary's Church.

Notes:   Native of Springfield, Massachusetts, born March 1829.
  Henry Pease was enumerated in the 1900 U.S. census in Napa, Napa County (enumeration district 95) as head of household in a rented house.  He was listed as married (12 years), age 71, born March 1829 in Massachusetts, parents both born in Massachusetts, occupation not stated.  His household included his wife Ruth A.

   Col. Pease died on 7 November 1903, and is buried in the G.A.R Plot (Lot 27, Block 82), Tulocay Cemetery, Napa.  The cremains of Ruth Pease -- his wife -- are buried next to him.  His headstone reads "COL. H. PEASE | DIED | NOV. 7, 1903. | AGED | 68 YEARS."

   Deceased was a veteran of the Civil War.  He enlisted in Company I, 25th Massachusetts Regiment of Infantry, at Worcester, on September 28th, 1861, and was discharged on October 20th, 1864, his term of three years of enlistment having expired.  When mustered out he had attained the rank of corporal.  Mr. Peck served under General Burnside and saw service in the Virginias and Carolinas.
   On his trip East last Fall he attended the 50th annual reunion and encampment of the Grand Army of the Republic, held in Washington, D.C., the latter part of September, and was among the "boys in blue" who participated in the great parade that passed in review before President Woodrow Wilson on September 27th, 1915.

W. F. PECK DEAD.
-----
The Popular Proprietor of the Palace Hotel Dies Suddenly of Heart Disease.
-----
   It is our painful duty to record this morning the death of W. F. Peck, the popular proprietor of the Palace Hotel in East Napa, which sad event occurred at about half-past nine o'clock last night.
   Heart disease, with which he had long been a sufferer, was the cause of death.
   Monday night he closed the hotel at ten minutes past 12 o'clock, and retired to his room.  Mr. Wm. Travis, who retired at the same hour, says that at that time Mr. Peck appeared in excellent health and was as jovial as usual.
   Tuesday morning Mr. Peck came down stairs, but complained of not being well, and soon returned to his bed.  Dr. Hadfield was called, and found the patient suffering with nervous prostration, and a threatened attack of pneumonia complicating the heart trouble.  His condition gradually grew worse, and death finally followed at about 9:30 in the evening.
   Mr. Peck came to Napa about two years and a half ago, and took charge of the Palace Hotel.  He proved a genial landlord and made the Palace one of the most popular hostelries in this section of the State, and by his honorable, upright and straightforward business methods won the friendship and esteem of all who had business relations with him.  He was a good man for Napa, and his demise will be sincerely regretted by all who knew him.

Rank:  1st Lieutenant

Obituary from the Napa Daily Register newspaper, 8 June 1876, p. 3, col. 3:
   We are pained to announce the death of Frank B. Rosslewin, (of the dental firm of Rosslewin & Vanderlip) at his residence in this city, at 8 o'clock this morning.  The disease that terminated his life was consumption, of which he has been a patient sufferer for several months.  Mr. Rosslewin was a native of Ireland, though he has lived in this country from childhood, coming to New York State when a boy and living there for a number of years.  From New York State he removed to Indiana and came from the latter State to California eight years ago, living for the first four years in Suisun and the last four years in this city, in both of which places he practiced his profession of dentistry.  During the war of the rebellion he served his country faithfully and well as Captain in the 85th Indiana Volunteer Infantry, and was with Sherman in his famous march from Atlanta to the sea.  Mr. Rosslewin dies at the age of 39 years, and leaves a devoted wife with three children; also five sisters (three in Chicago and two in Elkhart, Ind.,) and three brothers (two in Rochester, N.Y., and one in Fort Wayne, Ind.)
   Deceased was a consistent Christian, a member of the Presbyterian Church, and passed away fully resigned to his Maker's will, ever conscious of his condition, and ever expressing his confidence in the glorious promises of his risen Saviour.  His transition was a peaceful one, and consciousness was spared him to the last.
   In the death of Dr. Rosslewin, Napa loses an upright and useful citizen, and the societies of which he was a member have sustained a loss they will keen[l]y feel.
   The funeral services will take place to-morrow (Friday June 9th,) at 1 1/2 o'clock p.m., from the Presbyterian church in this city.

Post-funeral notice from the Napa Daily Register newspaper, 10 June 1876, p. 3, col. 2):

   According to A Standard History of Elkhart County, Indiana, vol. 2 (published 1916), Francis B. Rosslewin (Senior) "established the family home at Rochester, New York, where he remained until 1857, when he came with his family to Elkhart County, Indiana, where both he and his wife passed the remainder of their lives."
   In 1860, Francis was enumerated as "Frank Roslwin" in Elhart, Elkhart County, Indiana, under the household of a plow maker named Bethuel Rowell.  He was listed as age 24, born in Ireland, no profession indicated.
  Francis married Mary Jane Vanderlip in Elkhart County on 23 April 1868.  She was born 17 January 1846 in Wethersfield Springs, New York, and was the daughter of George Rodney Vanderlip and Mary Wiley (source:  The Vanderlip, Van Derlip, Vander Lippe Family in America, 1914).
   By 1870, the Francis and Mary Rosslewin had moved to California.  They were enumerated in the 1870 census in Suisun City, Solano County, where Francis was working as a dentist.  He was listed as "Francis Rosslion," age 33, born in Ireland, personal estate valued at $500.  The household included Mary J. (age 22, keeping house), and a daughter Mary (age 1, born in California).
    Francis died 8 June 1876 at the age of 39, and was buried at Tulocay Cemetery on 9 June 1876.  The grave is marked with a family headstone.  Mary Jane reportedly moved to Santa Ana with other relatives after the death of her husband.

Military information:  Union.  "Francis B. Roslewin" enlisted on 28 July 1862, and was mustered as a Sergeant into Company E of the 74th Indiana Infantry.  His residence at the time of enlistment was Elkhart, Indiana.  He was promoted to 2nd Lieutenant of 8 March 1863 and to 1st Lieutenant (not mustered) on 1 May 1865.  He was mustered out at Washington, D.C., on 9 June 1865.
   Francis B. Rosslewin's wife applied for and received a widow's pension benefit on 11 November 1897 (application no. 254183, cert. no. 285057).  Rosslewin appears to have not personally applied for a disability pension.  Service on the pension death index card was noted as 2 Lt., Co. E, 74 Ind. Inf.
   He is noted in his obituary and the late Carl Lionberger's list of Civil War veterans buried in Tulocay Cemetery, identified as a Captain in the 85th Indiana Infantry.  This rank and regimental affiliation appears to be an error.

Old Soldier Drinks Carbolic Acid In This City and Dies.
-----
   Some time late Saturday afternoon Louis Siebecker, a veteran, ended his life in a room in the German House on Brown street by drinking a large quantity of carbolic acid.
   Shortly before six o'clock the man was found dead in his room by an employe of the place.  He was still warm, and according to Dr. A. J. Kahn, who examined the dead man soon after he was discovered, Siebecker could not have been dead more than an hour.
   The despondent old soldier, no doubt, sat on the edge of the bed, and after consuming fully half of a good-sized vial of the deadly acid, replaced the bottle on the near-by table.  He then toppled over backwards on the bed, and when found his legs were dangling on the floor.
   His face was quite badly burned.
   On the table was also found a large bottle of wood alcohol, an empty brandy bottle, a drained half-pint whiskey flask and a full bottle of Jamaica ginger.
   No note or word of any kind to indicate the motive of the dead man's shuffling off could be found.
   Five or six dollars and some pension and discharge papers were found in the dead man's pockets.
   Siebecker was a native of Germany, aged 77 years, and served during the Civil War as a private in Co. F of the 143rd New York Infantry.
   He was admitted to the Veterans' Home more than seven years ago, and discharged therefrom at his own request on Monday last.
   The deceased had been in town for several days and engaged his room at the German House on Friday evening.

CHARLES SMITH.
   Charles Smith, well known in this community as "Colonel" Smith, died Saturday night at his home in Coombsville, from a complication of diseases.  He was a native of Hereford, Eng., and 73 years of age.  He leaves two daughters in Chicago, Mrs. Jewell and Mrs. Jennie Robinson, and a son.  He served in the Union Army during the war and was once wounded in an engagement with the Indians in Minnesota.  Before coming to Napa he was a member of Geo. H. Thomas Post, G.A.R., and of the Veteran Guard of San Francisco.  He was at one time chef of the Palmer House, Chicago, and later held the same position in the Palace Hotel in San Francisco.  He designed the interior arrangement and superintended the first trip of the first dining car built by George H. Pullman.
   Colonel Smith was a gentleman of the old school, gentle, courtly and cordial, and was well liked by all who knew him.  He was especially the friend of young people, and his house was always open and his table ready for his young friends.
   He was alone when he died, but his death was apparently painless.  A neighbor found him Sunday morning lying on the lounge in his sitting room, where he had evidently lain down to rest after writing a letter to one of his daughters.  The letter lay unsealed on the table, and beside it, with the oil all burned out, was the lamp by the light of which he had been writing.  He had been in poor health for some time, having suffered a stroke of paralysis, and was quite feeble.
   The funeral was held Tuesday afternoon from St. Mary's Church, of which he was one of the vestry.
   Rev. W. B. Thorn officiated, and the regular vested choir sang "In the Hour of Trial," "Come Ye Disconsolate" and "De Profundis."  The pall bearers were Chas. and Jos. Levinson, W. C. Keig, L. T. Merwin, J. F. Kelly and T. D. Derry.

Notes:   Native of Hereford, England, born about 1826.
    He died 23 December 1899 at his home in the Coombsville District, Napa.  The funeral was held at St. Mary's Church in Napa on 26 December, with burial presumably at Tulocay Cemetery.

Former Napan Served in Volunteers' Regiment Until Badly Wounded

   NAPA, April 18. (Special to the Press Democrat). -- William O. Smith, 84, whose fondest recollections of the civil war days were the handclasps and words of encouragement given him by President Abraham Lincoln while he lay grievously wounded in a Washington hospital after the battle of Petersburg was buried here today.  Smith, Grand Army man and a former newspaperman, died this week at the Veterans Home at Yountville.
   Born in Germany, Smith came to the United States as a child of three in 1861, when the civil war broke out, he was a member of Co. B, 38th Wisconsin Volunteers, with which he served until the battle of Petersburg, June 17, 1864, where he was badly wounded.

   Smith came to Napa in 1874 and engaged in the dry goods business for several years.  When he retired from active business in 1914 he had for some time been connected with a San Francisco newspaper.
  In his younger days he was active in the affairs of the Grand Army, and was one of the leaders in Kit Carson Post of Napa, which recently lapsed because death had removed so many of the members.  He was also a member of the Masonic order.  Five children survive him.

DEATH CAME QUICKLY.
-----
Jos. D. Smythe Expired Saturday Afternoon in the Bank of Napa.
-----
   Joseph D. Smythe, a well known local capitalist, expired suddenly Saturday afternoon in the Bank of Napa.  He went to the Bank shortly before three o'clock, shook hands with President Chapman and Cashier Brown and exchanged a few pleasantries with Jesse Bowen.
   While standing in front of the counter he suddenly became dizzy.  Mr. Brown reached across the counter and caught him as he was about to fall, and Mr. Chapman lead him to a chair.
   He revived in a few minutes and said that he had had an attack of that nature last Tuesday.  He talked for a few minutes and then fainted again.
   Drs. Chapman and Towle soon arrived, but he expired within a few moments.  The remains were removed to Kyser's undertaking rooms.
   Deceased was a native of Londonderry, Ireland, and 72 years of age.  He was unmarried, and left no relatives in America.  He had some collateral relatives in Ireland, however.  He resided in Napa for a good many years, living by himself.  He was a stockholder and Director of the Bank of Napa, and was reputed to be quite wealthy.
   He had been in poor health for several weeks, had expected to die suddenly, and had left directions with Henry Brown as to the disposition of his affairs.
   An inquest will be held at 10 o'clock this morning and the funeral will be held to-morrow afternoon at 2 o'clock, probably from the Presbyterian Church.

Geo. Tool Killed When Train Struck His Automobile.
-----
   Geo. W. Tool, a well known resident of Salvador District, was almost instantly killed Monday morning at about 8:10 o'clock near Union Station.  He was hurled from the automobile in which he was riding by the electric engine of the work train on the electric line.
   Mr. Tool was coming down the lane from his place on the way to Napa, and the electric work train, with Geo. Rice conductor and A. Manuel motorman, was coming along on its way up the valley.  Mr. Tool did not see the train until he was almost on the track, it is believed, as there are buildings which would obstruct his view south of the lane.  The "pig" struck a rear wheel of the auto, throwing Mr. Tool out of the machine, and hurling his head against a post under the platform used at times for holding milk.
   Mr. Tool was picked up by members of the train crew, but lived but a few moments after the accident occurred.
   Herbert Morley and D. M. Hobson were working in the Fisher Packing House, only a few feet from the crossing, when the accident occurred, and their attention was attracted by the crash of the collision.  They both say that a whistle was blown as the electric train approached the crossing.
   Dr. O. T. Schulze was summoned, but by the time that he arrived at Union Station Mr. Tool had passed away.
   He found that the latter had his skull crushed in, and that death was due to a fracture of the skull.
   The Coroner's jury rendered a verdict of death from accident; exonerating the employes of the work train from blame for the death; and recommended that warning bells be installed at all important crossings by the railroad company.
   Mr. Tool was 72 years of age, and was a native of Indiana.  He had resided with his brother, S. M. Tool, at their place north of Napa, for over 25 years.  They had been largely interested in raising and packing fruit for many years.
   The deceased was well known throughout the county.

Notes:  Native of Indiana, born May 1838.
   George W. Tool was enumerated in the 1900 census in Salvador Precinct, Napa, Napa County, CA, living in the household of his brother Sylvanus M. Tool.  George was listed as a widower, age 62, born May 1838 in Indiana, father born in Georgia, mother born in Kentucky, occupation orchardist.
    A George W. Tool died in Napa County on 10 October 1910 at the age of 72.  He is buried at Tulocay Cemetery.

Military information:  Union.  He enlisted as a Private on 27 November 1861 at the age of 21, and was mustered into Company E of the 15th Iowa Infantry on 1 December 1861.  His residence at the time of enlistment was noted as Keosauqua, Iowa.  On 1 March 1862 he transferred into Company C of the 17th Iowa Infantry, where he remained until being discharged for promotion on 18 July 1863.  During his time with the 17th Iowa, he was promoted twice -- to 2nd Sergeant on 4 July 1862, and to 1st Sergeant on 10 December 1862.  On 18 July 1863 he was commissioned as Captain of Company C of the 50th U.S. Colored Troops Infantry (originally called Company C of the 12th Louisiana Colored Infantry, African Descent).
   His name appears on the African American Civil War Memorial as "George W. Tool."  The plaque number is C-63.  Commissioned officers in the U.S. Colored Troops (USCT) were white, and their names appear with the names of their comrades on the memorial.

John Lint Tuthill
(1834 - 1868)
Rank:  1st Lieutenant

Obituary (The Napa Register weekly newspaper, Saturday, October 17, 1868 (pg. 2, col. 5):
DIED.
   Died of consumption, at St. Helena, in this county, on Saturday, October 10th, 1868, John L. Tuthill, aged about 33.
   Mr. Tuthill was a native of the State of Illinois.  He was a member of the legal profession.  On the breaking out of the rebellion he volunteered with a regiment formed in the Southern part of Illinois, and soon afterward was commissioned as Lieutenant, and served until the close of the war.  Exposure during the war doubtless hastened the development of the illness with which he died.  He came to this country about three years ago in the hope of restoration to health.  His conduct and manner were such as to make him many warm friends, who now mourn his loss.  He died calmly, in the pleasing hope of a happy future.

Biography from The history of the descendants of Elder John Strong of Northampton, Mass., by Benjamin Woodbridge Dwight, 1871:
    JOHN LINT TUTHILL b. March 14, 1834, at Vergennes, Ill.:  for 2 years at McKendree Coll., Ill.: a lawyer at Murfreesboro, Ill.  He enlisted at the beginning of the late war in the U.S.A. as a private in the 18th Ill., Regt. Vol. Inf., and was soon promoted to the command of his company:  was in the battles of Belmont, Fort Henry, and Fort Donaldson:  was detailed with his company on "the Queen of the West," one of the Mississippi ram fleet, and was in command when she ran by the batteries at Vicksburgh, and was publicly commended for his personal bravery.  He was afterwards put in command of "The Indianola," another of the ram fleet, to open up the Mississippi and Red rivers for the passage of transports which he gallantly achieved.  He was on the Indianola when she was captured, after having been disabled in action.  Last to leave the boat he saved his life only by floating in the night on a cotton bale some seven miles in the Red River when he was picked up faint and feeble by a gunboat.  He was afterwards put in command of "The Switzerland."  He saw much severe service from first to last, which induced the disease, consumption, of which he died.  He went in 1866, at the expiration of his term of service to California for his health, where this noble patriot died as truly for his country, as if falling in the smoke of battle, at St. Helena, Cal., Oct. 10, 1868.  He was a member of the Episcopal church.

A biography presented by D. Enderlin at Tulocay Cemetery on 13 June 2009, researched by D. Enderlin and C. Eddy:
    John Lint Tuthill was born March 14, 1834, at the Mississippi River town of Vergennes (VER-jenz), in Jackson County, southern Illinois.  The Tuthills lived in a part of town known as "Tuthill's Prairie," named in their honor as early settlers on the wild prairie soil in that area.  John was the third of six children born to Daniel Braley Tuthill and Sally Strong.  The town of Vergennes received its name from John's mother, who named the place in honor of her childhood home in Vermont.  In addition to his five siblings, John had three half-siblings by his mother's first marriage.
    After attending McKendree College at Lebanon, Illinois, John became a lawyer and went into practice in Murphysboro, Jackson County, Illinois.  He was living at Murphysboro when the Civil War broke out, and like his younger brothers, he was quick to join the Union cause in the war.  He enlisted at Anna, Illinois, on May 28, 1861, for a term of three years, and was mustered into Company K of the 18th Illinois Infantry on the same date.  He was described as age 28, height 5' 4", hair dark, eyes dark, complexion dark, single, occupation lawyer.
    John was promoted to sergeant on January 1, 1862, and participated shortly thereafter with his company in the attack on the Confederate river stronghold of Fort Henry, Tennessee.  After the Union victory at Fort Henry, John marched with the company on to Fort Donelson, Tennessee, where in February of 1862 the Union forces were once again victorious.  From there, John's company marched on, participating in the Battle of Shiloh in April 1862 (the bloodiest battle of the Civil War up until that time) and then the Siege of Corinth, Mississippi in May 1862.  John was promoted to the rank of 2nd Lieutenant two months after the Siege of Corinth (July 8, 1862).
    About the time that John received his promotion, efforts were afoot in the Union Army to create a specialized unit to counteract Confederate naval and guerilla forces that were causing havoc with shipping along the Mississippi River system.  Using a technology borrowed from ancient war ships in the Mediterranean, the army created a fleet of ships that were capable of disabling or sinking enemy river boats by ramming them.  This became known as the Mississippi Ram Fleet.
    The U.S. Navy was critical of this idea, and refused to be involved with it.  For this reason, the Army manned this new fleet of vessels with their own men, borrowed from various infantry regiments.  Among the outfits detailed to the Ram Fleet was Company K, of the 18th Illinois Infantry… the same company that John had joined.  Company K was detailed to the Ram Fleet on December 11, 1862, serving aboard the sidewheel ram steamer USS Queen of the West.  John Tuthill was promoted to 1st Lieutenant on December 10, 1862.  It was aboard this vessel that John Tuthill served with such gallantry that it earned him a place in Civil War history.  Near Fort Taylor (a.k.a., Fort DeRussy) on the Black River, the Queen's steam pipes took a direct hit, crippling the vessel and forcing her to run aground.  Most of the officers – having heard that the Confederates intended to hang them if captured – abandoned ship, joined by twenty soldiers.  Thirteen soldiers and seven crew members – including the wounded ship's captain – remained on board.  After being rescued by a waiting vessel (the De Soto) downstream, Lieutenant Tuthill and Third Master Duncan bravely volunteered to return to the crippled Queen to aid in the rescue of the remaining crew.  Tuthill assisted with the evacuation until the last possible moment.  As Confederate troops began to board her, he escaped from the Queen by floating downstream on a cotton bale in the cold dark night.
    Tuthill's actions on board the Queen of the West were commended by the commanding officer of the Ram Fleet, Colonel Charles Rivers Ellet.  In his report dated February 21, 1863, to Bigadier-General Alfred W. Ellet, the colonel recommended Tuthill for promotion "for bravery and efficiency" on the Queen.
    Tuthill and the survivors of the Queen were for a brief time assigned to the ironclad river monitor USS Indianola until sometime before this ship was also captured. He next served aboard the USS Switzerland.  He and the members of Company K were permanently detached to the Mississippi Marine Brigade (which included the Ram Fleet), per special order No. 69, War Department, on 11 February 1863.
    Years of exposure to the humid conditions and muddy waters of the Mississippi River backwaters – together with close-quarters contact with other army members – made disease a common occurrence aboard the ships of the Ram Fleet.  Many men contracted diseases that either cut their lives short or plagued them the rest of their lives.  Tuthill was no exception.  He contracted tuberculosis (consumption, as it was called back then).  Although he was able to complete his three years of service, being mustered out on May 28, 1864, his health was already in decline by that time he was discharged.
    Seeking a cure for his ailments, Tuthill came to the Napa Valley in California in 1866.  It is quite likely that he came to the Napa Valley on the invitation of his older sister, Ellen Louisa (Tuthill) Gross.  She and her husband, Alexander Pecks Gross, had also moved to Napa in 1866, later settling in Vallejo with their family of five children.  John chose to live in St. Helena, where he settled down to enjoy as best he could the final years of his life.  John died on Saturday, October 10, 1868, at St. Helena "calmly, in the pleasing hope of a happy future."  He was buried here at Tulocay Cemetery by his sister, who honored his memory with this epitaph.

Notes:  Native of the Mississippi River town of Vergennes, Jackson County, Illinois, born 14 March 1834.  The Tuthills lived in a part of town known as "Tuthill's Prairie," named in honor of their family who settled on the wild prairie soil in that area.  John was the third of six children born to Daniel Bradley Tuthill and Sally Strong.  The town of Vergennes received its name from John's mother, who named the place in honor of her childhood home in Vermont.  In addition to his five siblings, John had three half-siblings by his mother's first marriage.
   "John Lent Tuthill" appears in the 1850 census in the Northern District of Jackson County, Illinois, under the household of his father, Daniel B. Tuthill.  John was listed as single, age 16, born in Illinois, occupation farmer, attended school in the last year.
   He died of tuberculosis (consumption) near St. Helena, Napa County, on 10 October 1868, and was buried at Tulocay Cemetery in Tier B, row 0, Lot 19. 

Military information:  Union.  Note:  The 1871 biography presented above contains many errors regarding Tuthill's military service.  He enlisted at Anna, Illinois on 28 May 1861 for three years, and was mustered in on the same date as a Corporal in Company K, 18th Illinois Infantry.  He was described at enlistment as a resident of Murphysboro, Jackson County, Illinois, age 28, height 5' 4", hair dark, eyes dark, complexion dark, single, occupation lawyer.  He was soon promoted to Sergeant on 1 January 1862, to 2nd Lieutenant on 8 July 1862, and to 1st Lieutenant on 10 December 1862.
  Tuthills' biography notes that he participated in the operations at Belmont (MO, Jan. 16-21, 1862), Fort Henry (TN, Feb. 2-8, 1862), Fort Donelson (TN, Feb. 12-16, 1861).  Although not mentioned in the biography, his company would also have been at the Battle of Shiloh (TN, Apr. 6-7, 1862) and at the Siege of Corinth (MS, Apr. 29-May 30, 1862).  Company K was detached from the regiment to serve in the Mississippi Ram Fleet (later called the Mississippi Marine Brigade) on 11 December 1862.  Tuthill served the remainder of his three years in the ram fleet.  He was mustered out on 28 May 1864.
   Tuthill served aboard the steam rams USS Queen of the West, USS Indianola, and USS Switzerland.

José Manuel Salvador Vallejo
(1813 - 1876)
Rank:  Major

Notes:   Born 3 March 1813.  He and his brother, General Mariano G. Vallejo, were captured at Sonoma during the Bear Flag Rebellion in June 1846, and spent two months in prison at Sutter's Fort.  Wife was Maria Luz, born 18 May 1813, died 18 May 1890.
  He died at his brother's home in Sonoma on 18 February 1876, and is buried at Tulocay Cemetery.

Military information:  Union.  He enlisted on 9 February 1863 at San Francisco, and was commissioned a Major (Field & Staff) in the 1st  Battalion, California Native Cavalry.  Headquarters was at Drum Barracks.  Frustrated by menial assignments given to his men at Drum Barracks (namely, ditch digging), he resigned on 28 February 1865.
   It was thought at the time this battalion formed that native Californians -- being excellent at horsemanship -- would make a skilled cavalry unit.  For this reason, the War Department authorized the creation of four companies to constitute the California Native Battalion.  Vallejo accepted the commission as Major after General Pico of Los Angeles declined for health reasons.  According to the California State Military Museum, Vallejo was not officially mustered in as Major until 13 August 1864.
  As a side note, an Edward Bale (probably Eduardo Guadalupe Bale, son of Dr. Edward Turner Bale of Rancho Carne Humana in the upper Napa Valley) became Captain of Company D of this Batallion after Vallejo had resigned.
   Salvador Vallejo appears in Carl Lionberger's list of Civil War burials at Tulocay Cemetery.

S. R. Bell, Milwaukee, Wis.
   Dear Sir and Comrade -- Your letter of invitation to attend the fifth annual meeting
of the 28th Wis. Vol. Infantry was duly received, and it is with feelings of regret, I assure you, that I write of my inability to attend the reunion now upon you.  These opportunities of meeting with our old comrades are becoming fewer with the passing years, and death is diminishing our numbers year by year; hence, I regret the more that I am unable to meet with you, for I assure you it would give me the greatest pleasure imaginable to meet my old comrades of the 28th once more and shake them by the hand, and, as you say, "let us stand closer together as our ranks grow thin," and close up and keep up our friendly meetings until we are called upon one by one to answer to the final roll call.  Kindly extend to each comrade my fraternal regards and assure them that whenever I can I will be in attendance at their reunions.  I shall think of you all, and hope and pray you will have a glorious time.
   What are the dues for next year?  As soon as I hear from you, will forward you the same.  Yours, very respectfully,
H. WEAVER, Co. C.

Napa, Cal., June 26, 1903.
S. R. Bell, Milwaukee, Wis:
   Dear Comrade: -- Your circular letter was received in due time apprising me of your reunion on the 30th of June.  Am sorry I can't be with you but the distance is so far and my health is poor, I shall have to forego the pleasure of being with you.  There is nothing that would give me so much pleasure as to meet with old Comrades once more.  It may be so I can meet with you next year, if not will have to content myself in reading the proceedings of your meetings, which always interest me very much.  Give my kindest regards to all the boys and hope you will have a good time, and live to have many more reunions.  Enclosed I hand you $1.00 for dues.  Be sure and send me a proceedings of meeting.  God bless you all.  Good bye.
H. WEAVER.

Napa, Cal., July 25, 1904.
Mr. S. R. Bell, Milwaukee, Wis.
   Your card of the 14th at hand, a reminder of my neglect to send in my anual dues.  Yes, I want to keep in touch with my old Comrades of the 28th as long as any of them are left.  There is nothing that would have given me more joy than to have been with you at your reunion at Pewaukee but it was impossible for me to be there.  Hope you had a grand good time.  How often I think of my old Comrades, and when we marched together over forty years ago, we were then young and full of life, and now we are old and scattered all over the country.  It gives me great pleasure to hear from any of them, so don't forget to send me a copy of the proceedings so I can see who was there, and who has been mustered out, as some of us are answering to the last roll call every year.  My sincere kind wishes to all my Comrades.
Yours truly in F., C. and L.,
H. WEAVER.

Napa, Calif., June 27, 1910.
Dear Comrade Bell, Milwaukee, Wis.
   Dear Sir: -- Your circular letter received, advising me of your twenty-eighth reunion of the 28th Wisconsin Infantry, on the twenty-eighth, and your kind invitation to come home and attend the same, but owing to the great distance and poor health, and other circumstances that I can't prevent, will make it impossible for me to do so.  I will enclose you one dollar to pay my dues.  Hope you all have a grand good time and enjoy yourselves.  It would be the greatest pleasure of my life to be with you to-morrow and give you all a shake all around.  I send my kindest regards to you all.  I am
Your old Comrade,
H. WEAVER.

Napa, Cal., July 4, 1913.
Comrade S. R. Bell, Milwaukee, Wis.
   Your circular letter of June 9 at hand, and regret to report to you that I can't be [with]  you at your reunion on the 9th, the great distance and poor health being my excuse.  I will send you one dollar to pay dues.  I wish you all a good time and a good attendance.  I have not forgotten fifty years ago to-day.  I was sharpshooting at Helena, Ark.  My kindest regards to all.
Fraternally yours,

OTHERS DETERMINED NOT TO BE VETERANS OF THE CIVIL WAR
The late Carl Lionberger did a tremendous job of compiling the names of proven and suspected Civil War veterans buried in California, and I have used the names of those on his lists in this compilation.  Not all of the names he compiled have proven to be Civil War veterans, however.  Those named below fall into this category.  Because the research has been done, I feel that it is worth presenting the results of the research for public benefit.

   William M. Boggs, a respected pioneer of Napa, passed away Friday afternoon at Bakersfield, where he had been visiting his son, Wm. S. Boggs.  Word of his demise came to Napa Saturday morning in a telegram to Harry Palmer.
   Mr. Boggs had been in failing health for several months past, so his demise was not unexpected.  He was a native of Missouri, and 85 years of age.
   He leaves to mourn his demise a sister, Mrs. Sophia Palmer of Napa; three sons, Wm. S. Boggs of Bakersfield, Jefferson Boggs of Mendocino county, and Angus W. Boggs of Lake county.
   Wm. M. Boggs was a son of Governor L. W. Boggs of Missouri, who came to California with his family in 1846.  Much of the early history of Napa and Sonoma is identified with the activities of L. W. Boggs, who died in 1860.  W. M. Boggs was present at the raising of the Bear Flag at Sonoma, along with several other Napa county pioneers who have passed away.
   The remains will be brought to Napa to-day, and the funeral will be held at 2:30 o'clock Monday afternoon from Kyser's undertaking parlors.

Notes:   Born 21 October 1826 at Six Mile Settlement, near Fort Osage, Jackson County, Missouri.  He was the son of Lilburn William Boggs and Panthea Grant Boone (granddaughter of Daniel Boone).
   William M. Boggs died 22 April 1911 at San Joaquin Hospital in Bakersfield, Kern County, California, at the age of 84, and was buried at Tulocay Cemetery.  Cause of death was "dropsy."  His headstone reads "WILLIAM M. | BOGGS | 1826 - 1911".

Military Information:  Mexican War veteran, not Civil War.  He was not marked as a Civil War veteran in the 1910 census (others on the same census page are identified as such).
   According to Menefee's Historical and Descriptive Sketchbook of Napa, Sonoma, Lake and Mendocino, 1873, "He served three months in the Mexican war on this coast as a non-commissioned officer in a battalion of mounted riflemen recruited by himself and A.F. Grayson. The battalion was attached to the command of Lieutenant Maddox of the Marine Corps under Commodore Stockton, and was honorably discharged at Monterey."
   He is noted on the late Carl Lionberger's list of Civil War veterans buried in Tulocay Cemetery.  Remarks:  8629 ?

HOME FLORIST SUMMONED BY ANGEL OF DEATH

F. C. Bormann Stricken Ill Yesterday Dies Within a Few Hours Afterwards
-----
   Stricken ill as he was leaving the Veterans' Home grounds for Napa yesterday afternoon shortly after 1 o'clock, Fred H. Bormann, twenty-five years chief florist at the Institution was taken to his home on the reservation and despite the efforts of attending physicians died about 5 o'clock last evening.  Apparently in the best of health yesterday his sudden illness and death came as a severe shock to his devoted wife and children and to his countless friends throughout the valley where he has resided for many years.
   Mr. Bormann was born in Germany 78 years ago and came into California as a young man.  Educated in the florist art and considered a most capable man he was appointed to the position of chief florist at the Veterans' Home twenty-five years ago and held the position until death.  Much of the beautification of the home grounds is the result of Mr. Bormann's efforts.
   Deceased is survived by his wife, Mary Bormann, and the following children:  Fred C. Bormann of Napa; E. C. Bormann of the Veterans' Home where he is chief engineer; R. C. Bormann of San Francisco; Mrs. Paul Grange of San Francisco and Miss Emma Bormann of San Francisco.  Six grand-children also survive.
   The remains have been brought to the Pinkham & Webber parlors and announcement of plans for the funeral will be made later.
