Notes

In my research of Freeman Mason, a recruit for my town of Charlotte, VT, I find that his sister Phydula Mason had married Isaac Clark in Barre, VT, on August 8, 1858. Isaac's service is correct as you note; his birth was in Melbourne, Estrie Region, Quebec, Canada. I found in the U.S. Registers of Deaths of Volunteers, Vermont volume, A-Z, that Isaac Clark was wounded by gunshot in action at Cold Harbor as you note, but further states that he died at Lincoln Hospital in Washington, DC on June 24, 1864. He is buried in Arlington National Cemetery, Find-a-Grave memorial #34839029. His widow Phydula remarried to Nathan D. Burroughs on June 17, 1869 and the pension was continued for two minor children, Henry Herbert Clark (born June 19, 1860), and Charles I. Clark (born May 1, 1862) until their age of majority.
