I am currently writing a book about the 14th Ky Infantry Regiment and I am
seeking information about members of this unit, such as letters,
diaries,pension records,photos, memoirs, burial site
information,ANYTHING...I'll be more than happy to share information on an
ancestor whenever available!
Does anyone know about a cemetery on top of a hill ca. one mile north of
Paintsville, near the Big Sandy River? Garfield camped with his brigade at
the foot of this hill after the Battle of Middle Creek and the casualties
of the battle were buried there as well as the soldiers that died of
disease while at Paintsville (January 13 - February 10, 1862). Would also
love to hear any Civil War related stories from the Paintsville/Johnson
County area. Any information would be deeply appreciated!!! Thanks!

Sincerely,

Marlitta H. Perkins

This is great Marlitta! I have 6 or 7 grandpappy's in that regiment. Please advise me how I can help.

On searching for the Union Encampment and cemetery near Paintsville, I will ask around and will inform my 'cousins'.
The double hairpin NE of Paintsville would have had great military advantage. As I assume that lookouts could see both up and down the river for great distances from one point. The center of the first hairpin in the river is Thealka. (but I am not sure about the mileage from Paintsville) This area has been heavily mined (if my memory serves me correctly) The center of the second hairpin, actualy a large pennisula (yet narrow-land wise) would have also been
a great place for an encampment, because of its massive 'level' area at its point(part of which now is the golf course). At any rate the reference to about 'one mile north of Paintsville', must be via the river, as the Big Sandy is east of Paintsville (as apposed to land travel)

My great grandfather’s uncle was Pvt. Hiram Jude. He was born 1844 in Lawrence County, Kentucky, the son of John Frederick (alias Jude), Sr., and Martha "Patsy" Boner aka Boney aka Beneney. He was listed on the Report of the Adjutant General of the State of Kentucky as a private, serving the Union during the Civil War. On Aug. 29, 1863 at age 19, he was mustered in Co. H, 14 Reg’t Kentucky Inf., at Louisa, KY by Lieut. J. C. Henderson. He volunteered on March 12, 1863 in Louisa for a period of 3 years. On the company muster roll for July and August, 1864 he was absent and was missing in action Aug. 22, 1864. According to a memorandum from prisoner of war records, this was due to being captured at Atlanta, GA on August 9, 1864. He was paroled at Savannah River, GA on Nov. 20, 1864. Muster was completed Dec. 24, 1864. Muster roll shows he was mustered out of Co. H on January 31, 1865 and also shows "recruit enlisted since the original organization, turned over to Commanding Officer of Post at Louisa, KY Jan 30, 1865". He was transferred to Company "C," Batt’n 14th Kentucky Veteran Volunteer Infantry. Private was mustered out of Co. C, Batt’n 14 Kentucky Inf., on Sept. 15, 1865 by Captain Thos. V. Marcum showing "recruit died of fever at Louisa, KY June 21, 1865." This information was obtained from General Reference Branch (NNRG-P), National Archives and Records Administration, 7th and Pennsylvania Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20408.

Hi Phyllis,
These are the men that I found on the rolls of the 14th KY with the surnames that you have specified.
I have given their names as noted on the rolls, with their respective company.
If some (or all :-) ) of the men are your ancestors I will be more than happy to provide you with any additional information as I have it in my files for each man.
You also might want to browse my 14th KY website, which has a fantastic photogallery and includes a picture of Chilton Osborn, and the 1890 Veterans Census (in progress). The URL :
http://www.geocities.com/Pentagon/Quarters/1365

William H. Williamson, Co.C
Henry Perry, Co.D
Benjamin F. Perry, Co.F

This is great, Mary! Thanks for asking around in the Paintsville area for the possible spot of Garfield's camp and the cemetery. I make frequent trips to the Eastern Kentucky area and I will check the places out that you have told me about.
Wow! You had that many grandfathers serving in the 14th KY ? Wonderful!
First of all I would need their names and a short biography on them, if possible. I'd like to include every soldier and may it be just some vitals, but hopefully more.
If you have their military and/or pension records that would help, too!
Pictures would be fantastic or letters/diaries, that sort of thing. Unfortunately, these items are usually hard to come by.Just let me know what you have and we'll go from there..:-)
I also have created a website for the 14th KY. You might want to check it out.The URL is:
http://www.geocities.com/Pentagon/Quarters/1365

I am adding the 1890 Veterans Census on-line right now, plus there are lots of other interesting things about the regiment, including a dynamite photo gallery.
I think you'll like it!
Thanks for answering my query!!

I have checked my 14th KY roster for Stephen James Caudill and don't have his name listed.
It appears nevertheless, that a Stephen Caudill from Johnson County served as a private in Co. C, 45th KY Mounted Infantry.
You might want to check with the KY Adjutant General's Office in Frankfort and ask for any available information on him.There's only a small nominal fee (for photo copies)for this service, if at all.
The information you'll receive may tell you if it is one and the same person as your grandfather.
Good luck !!

Old family stories say that my ggrandfather Stephen James Caudill b. 1844 (in Johnson County), served in the civil war. I have not been able to verify. Stephen's father was Matthew James Caudill b. 1820 (in Perry County).
Stephen married Jincly (or Qincy) Fairchild b. 1842. Their first child was born in 1866 (James). They had nine children including my grandfather, George Washington Caudill b. 1883. I would be interested in any info to verify service in the civil war.
I would also be interested in your book when it is completed. Please keep my email address and let me know when it is available. Thanks!
