Soldier's Notes

Sergeant George Washington Mohney was from Clearfield, Pennsylvania. He was born February 22, 1840, enlisted December 12, 1861, and was mustered out July 14, 1865.

Private John H. Mace, Co. C, left his home in Virginia to join the regiment on December 12, 1864 in Scranton as he was determined to fight for the Union. He fought in the Breakthrough Battle at Petersburg on April 2, 1865 where he was wounded, but participated in the Sixth Corp pursuit of Lee to the surrender of the Army of Northern Virginia at Appomattox. Private Mace was mustered out at Washington, D.C. on July 14, 1865.

Alexander Duncan enlisted at a sergeant in the regiment, was captured at the Battle of Winchester and later paroled in Richmond. He was listed as AWOL with his company and spent months getting back in the Army’s good graces. He was given a commission of lieutenant in the US Army 45th Colored Infantry, company C, but had to resign and hire a “waiter” as his mother was ill and had no one to care for her. Alexander Duncan was a school teacher and because he was literate he moved up quickly in all his endeavors. You can see his beautiful handwriting when you view the Labette Country Census as he was the local census enumerator. He moved to Kansas after the War, served as a state legislator, and held other public positions in Labette County, Kansas as well as being founder of the Labette County Historical Society.

Private Hugh Frail, Company E, was captured at the Wilderness on 5 May 1864 and was a prisoner at Andersonville until he was marched to Camp Lawton in October of 1864. He was released on 20 November 1864 (due to health), paroled on 21 November 1864, admitted to the hospital on 4 December 1864, then transfered to US General Hospital Satterlee in West Philadelphia on 31 January 1865. He was mustered out of the 67th Pennsylvania on 14 June 1865 by AG order dated 4 May 1865.

Corporal Albert G. Schall, Company H, had three brothers who served in other regiments during the American Civil War: Absalom Schall in the 11th Pennsylvania, buried in Lawrence, Kansas; William Braden Schall in the 11th Illinois Cavalry, buried in Hutchinson, Kansas; and Andrew Jackson Schall, 57th Pennsylvania, who was killed at Fair Oaks. Andrew Jackson and Albert have a common gravestone and are buried in Unity Cemetery, Latrobe, Pennsylvania.

William Keller said he was 20 years old when he enlisted, but was actually only 15 years old as his birthday was Dec 25, 1846. He was captured on June 15, 1863 along with almost the entire regiment during the 2nd Battle of Winchester. William was imprisoned for short time in Richmond, and then sent to Camp Parole, Maryland, and lated paroled. He, along with most of the veterans in the regiment, reenlisted in early spring of 1864, earning them a furlough that caused them to miss some of the most terrible battles of Grant's Overland Campaign. In December of 1864 he was demoted to private, but promoted back to 1st sergeant in March 1865 and 2nd lieutenant sometime thereafter. In the official report for the battle of Sailor’s Creek, he was commended by name.

Private John Hayes, Company C, served from 1862 to 1865, was shot in the leg, and received $4 per month pension. He died in Austin, Potter County, Pennsylvania in 1907.

Private Hugh B. Kinter of Indiana, Pennsylvania joined Company B on 12 March 1862 in Philadelphia. He was taken prisoner near Berryville, Virginia, held at Richmond, then paroled at City Point. He contracted smallpox and was hospitalized in Kalorama Hospital in Washington, D.C., where he died on 5 Feb 1864 and buried in Arlington National Cemetery in site 9644.
