My great great grandfather was Elbridge Aurelius Stockwell. He served in Company E, wounded May 12, 1864. I am intending to tour The Wilderness and Spotsylvania May 7 and 8, which will be approximately 150 after his wounds took him out of service. Thankfully he lived. Family legend has it that his wounded shoulder bore quite a scar and limited use of one arm. He settled in Claremont, New Hampshire after the war, raised a family and lived a good life until 1919.
Thank you for all of your work on this site!

My mother's maiden name is Stannard and we are an old, multi-generational VT family. Her father was Henry Stannard. They lived in So.Dorset, VT. Reading of Gen. Stannard's courage and bravery what an honor if there was a relationship. May well be owing to the size of the population at that time. Great web site.!

My wifes 2 Great Grandfather was Patrick H. Mumford. He served with the 7th VT Infantry, his brother Thomas served with the 2nd VT Co. G. Thomas was wounded at the Battle of the Wilderness on 5/5/64, and is listed as deserting 12/1/64 but was later mustered out. Did his wound keep him from keeping up with his unit on their way to Petersberg in Dec 1864? I have not found any information as to the extent of his wound or where he was wounded. Does anyone know where I can obtain this information. By the way, this is the best site I have come accross whle researching other Units from other states.

We have been searching for a George G. Purdy, born in Manchester, Vt., about 1830, who moved to Iowa and married a Mary E. White in Scott County, Iowa, in 1857. I find a Civil War draft registration record for him residing in Hickory Grove, Iowa, age 34, born in Vermont about 1829. Querist is searching for his parents. Purdy was a big name in early Manchester but we cannot pin down who his parents were.

Two years ago I visited a museum in FL and saw a framed document which is the original discharge paper (signed) for Elias Edison Cox of Vermond. He was in the 7th VT Infantry. Enlisted 12/17/1861, and discharged 3/14/1866.

I have a picture of it if anyone is interested. The quality is not very good as I was using a flash. If anyone is interested I will go back and see if it's still there and I will try and get a better picture.
