This morning I read your post on Ancestry.com about John Marlow. I have an ancestor, John James Marlow, who was born around 1820 from County Tyrone. He came to the US and married Bridget Brady, also from Ireland, on Nov 25, 1845 at Saint Joseph’s Church, Washington Place and 6th Ave, NY City. A few months later they moved to New Haven where he joined the 9th US Infantry and left for the Mexican War to fight at Chapultapec and Marino del ray. Bridget went with him acting as a nurse. In 1861 he joined the 9th Regiment Connecticut Volunteers ( CT’s Irish regiment ) and left New Haven and Bridget with five children, the youngest being one month old. He died in the July heat opposite Vicksburg of malaria as the Ninth was assigned along with four other regiments to dig “Williams Canal” designed to reroute the Mississippi River and leave the guns at Vicksburg unimportant militarily. He is believed to have been reburied after the war in an unmarked grave in the Vicksburg National Cemetery as one of 17,000 Union soldiers. His name is also included on a plaque on the Ninth Regiment Monument dedicated at Bayview Park, New Haven in August 1903 as well as on the Soldiers and Sailors Monument dedicated atop East Rock in New Haven in June of 1887. The Marlow family and descendants are numerous.
