I received a copy of Civil War service for Samuel M. STUTSMAN today from
NARA. Samuel was son of John Stutsman listed on the 1860 Census for Jackson
Twp, Boone Co., IN. Jamestown Post Office.
This census lists John Stutsman 55, Ann 47, Hannah Remington nee Stutsman 27, Samuel
Stutsman 15, James Stutsman 10, Nicholas Stutsman 7, Allice Remington 6,
Joseph Remington 4 and John Remington 1.
Service in Capain Wilson's Co. (C), 2 N.E. Regiment Missouri Home Guard
When: July 15, 1861
Discharged: August 15, 1861
Period allowed: 1 month
Amount due and to be paid: $15.46
Paid: September 14, 1864
Does anyone know what the "M" stood for in Samuel M.? Would anyone know why
the length of service was so short? Perhaps they found out he was only ~15
years old. Was a draft in effect for the Civil War?
Samuel M. Stutsman md Harriett Thompson nee Lint in 1868, widow of Ulysses T.
Thompson, a Civil War casualty. The 1870 census for Benton Twp., Daviess Co.,
Mo lists Samuel STITZMAN 25, Harriet 29, Nancy J Thompson (dau of Ulysses
T.)7, and John 1.
The 1880 census for Benton Twp, Daviess Co, MO lists Harriet Stutsman 40, John 11, Emily 9, Hattie 7, Mattie May 5 and Viola 1. This means Samuel could have died 1878-80 or otherwise gone missing. I am missing information for these children.
Nancy J Thompson, Samuel's stepdaughter married John S Remington (her first cousin by marriage) abt
1884. She was first married to James Burns in 1878 and had son Charles Burns.
Were any COB organizations located near any of these places in MO? Were any
of these families still associated with the Brehren or one of it's branches at this time?
