Can you identify the SHATTUCK in this Civil War photo?

Can you identify the SHATTUCK in this Civil War photo?

Surnames: Shattuck
I recently received a photo of L---- M. B. Shattuck in his Civil War uniform.

I cannot be sure of the letters following the "L" in his given name. His middle initials of "M" and "B", and his last name, are quite clear. Also that he was in Co. A 14 Mass.

I have searched all our databases but cannot find anyone who fits. Also spent quite a bit of time searching for him on the Internet.

Perhaps he was known by one of his other given names, or one of you has access to military records of his unit.

The photo can be viewed, front and back here:

At the web site http://www.massachusettscivilwar.com/default.asp
I found that the 14th Mass. Vol. Inf. became the 1st Mass. Regiment Heavy Artillary. In that Regiment listed a Milton B. Shattuck. There is also a 3rd Mass Reb. Heavy Art. that lists the same soldier, along with a Nathianiel Shattuck. That is as close as I could come. Not unusual for people to go by middle name and not use first name. Hard to say.

Thanks Peter. I think that is our man.

Thanks to Chuck Shattuck's suggestion that L---- was probably an abbreviation for Lieutenant, Milton B. Shattuck fits just right. Perhaps someone can confirm that who knows Civil War uniforms.

Still can't find him in any of our databases though. The search goes on.

=================================

Thanks Pamela.

Quite possible that he is our William Milton Badger Shattuck born 18 Mar 1829 in Andover, Essex Cty., Mass who can be viewed here:

Right year, and right county, where several generations of his family had lived.

Perhaps he dropped the William as being over used, or for some other reason.

He descends from Joseph Shattuck, born about 1707, whose ancestry is uncertain according to Lemuel Shattuck on pages 104 & 105.

The only information we have on him is a one line printout on page 356 of Lemuel Shattuck's "Memorials of The Descendants of William Shattuck". giving his date of birth, and date of marriage to Almira Sampson.

Plus another source for his birth. "Vital Records of Andover Massachusetts, Vol.I-Births; Vol.II-Marriages and Deaths; Topsfield Historical Society, Topsfield, Mass., 1912; p.332."

Can anybody add anything that might show this is the same person?

Hi Robert,

There is also a Milton Shattuck, age 19, born in NH, on the 1850 census Saratoga Springs, Saratoga County, NY; occ: RR overseer.

On one of Milton B. Shattuck's enlistments, the first one, on 5 July 1861 he calls himself a track repairer. On the 2nd enlistment on 20 Oct 1863 he calls himself a shoemaker.

Do you have an apparent match for the Milton, age 19, born NH?
Pamela
=================================

Lemuel Shattuck, on page 337, has a Henry Milton Shattuck born in Brookline, NH, 8 Oct 1831. But he died of consumption 3 Apr 1852. As did at least four of his siblings between 1848 and 1853. I wonder if he was the RR overseer.

I found 5 entries for Milton A. Shattuck in the civil war records at Ancestry.com.
I suppose he could have enlisted as a private in 1861, when a track repairer, and discharged at a Sergeant.
Then, perhaps, he re enlisted as a Lieutenant in 1863, when a shoe repairer.

Surnames: SHATTUCK SAMPSON MANSUR
Here are the notes we have for the father of William Milton Badger Shattuck, Samuel, which indicate S was killed in the Civil War.

-----------------------------
The following data was obtained by the family of Charles Henry Shattuck III from the US Government Civil War records:
Samuel Shattuck applied for civil war pension (box# 32977 certificate# 120335 application# 141896) on 6-13-1866 stating that he had been married to Hannah Mansur of Pelham. (Hannah had a sister, Clarrisa Hovey. At the time of this application Clarrisa was living in Salem County, Rockingham, N. H.)
Samuel and Hannah were married 7-4-1819 by Rev. Joseph Snelling in Pelham, N. H. Samuel was of Andover. Samuel stated Hannah died 9-16-1847.
Samuel was made lame some years before by a compound fracture of the ankle and would always be obliged to use a crutch. Samuel made his mark, therefore, it is probable he was illiterate.
Samuel was applying based on his son's death during the civil war. He states his son, William enrolled 1-2-1864 as a Vet. Vol. at Newport News, Va. as a private in Company J 23rd regiment Mass. Volunteers and was killed in the trenches at Petersburg, Va. 7-21-1864 and that William left neither widow nor children. Captain Story was William's Captain. Since he was enrolled as a Vet. Vol., it is probably safe to say he had been enlisted before 1-2-1864.
Joseph B. F. Osgood of Salem, Mass. was Samuel's attorney.

------------------------

Shattuck Memorials Vol. I, page 356 only says:
"5. William M. B., b. Mar. 10, 1829; m. July 4, 1852, Almira Sampson."
They can be seen in our database here:

http://worldconnect.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&...

I wonder if he had dropped the William from his name, and if there are other Civil War records that would confirm this?

Here are our notes for William Milton Badger Shattuck 1829-1864, son of Samuel Shattuck and Hannah Mansor:
http://worldconnect.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&...

-------------------------
Samuel was applying based on his son's death during the civil war. He states his son, William enrolled 1-2-1864 as a Vet. Vol. at Newport News, Va. as a private in Company J 23rd regiment Mass.

Vol., it is probably safe to say he had been enlisted before 1-2-1864.
Joseph B. F. Osgood of Salem, Mass. was Samuel's attorney.

This is likely to be the Milton B. Shattuck 21, a Shoemaker, found in the household of James P. Jewell/Jewett 23, also a Shoemaker, for the 1850 census of Ipswich, Essex, MA.
