The following information contributed by: Roger Tryon, Laurel NE. EdwrdTryn@aol.com
Son of Oliver Ankeny. Born 11/8/1843 in WI. Charles was wounded in the Battle of Arkansas Post in January 1863, but went on to participate in the Siege of Vicksburg in July of that year. He was discharged for disability after serving 15 months.

Charles moved to Cedar County, NE, with his father in 1871, and later moved to the new town of Laurel. His last job was school custodian. On January 22, 1907, "Uncle Charlie," as he was affectionately known, dropped dead while shoveling cobs into the basement of the school house on Cedar Street. Charles Ankeny was the first Civil War vet buried in the Laurel cemetery.

NOTE: His name is listed as Charles A. ANKNEY in the Civil War archives with an alternate spelling of ANKENEY.



ANKENY Oliver Ruby
UNION GAR Marker on Grave
b. December 30, 1816 d. 2/7/1872 Buried: Laurel NE

The following information contributed by: Roger Tryon, Laurel NE. EdwrdTryn@aol.com
Oliver moved to Illinois with his parents at age two. Although listed on the Memorial Day program as a veteran of the Civil War, family tradition and a note in the Laurel Advocate of June 1, 1916, states that Ankeny fought in the Black Hawk War of 1932. He would have been about 15 years old at the time.

The Black Hawk War resulted from a dispute between the early settlers of Illinois, and Chief Black Hawk's tribe. Among the soldiers who fought in this was were two future presidents: Zachary Taylor and Abraham Lincoln.

Ankeny came to Cedar County, NE, with his sons in 1871 and homesteaded 5 miles northeast of the present site of Laurel. He died of tuberculosis in 1872, and was buried on the farm. Ankeny's remains were later moved to the Laurel cemetery. He is the oldest veteran buried in the Laurel cemetery. NOTE: The star on Ankeny's grave was furnished by the Randolph GAR. Ankeny could not have been a member of this organization as he died more than a decade before Randolph was founded.

CRAIG Calvin C. / Caven
UNION CO. D, 20th IA INFANTRY
Born: 1847 PA Died: 12/7/1926 Buried: Laurel NE

The following information contributed by: Roger Tryon, Laurel NE. EdwrdTryn@aol.com
CALVIN C. CRAIG was born in Pennsylvania in 1847. He moved to Davenport, IA, as a child. He enlisted in Co. D of the 20th Iowa Infantry and served for 2 years and 11 months. At the time of his enlistment, Craig couldn’t have been more than 16 years old.

The 20th Iowa was organized at Clinton, Iowa, in August 1862. In early September the men were loaded on steamboats and sent to St. Louis. From St. Louis they marched into Arkansas where they went into combat in the Battle of Prairie Grove (west of Fayetteville near the Oklahoma line). Like many other regiments, the 20th took part in the Siege of Vicksburg. After Vicksburg the regiment continued south into Texas and then east to Mobile where they were involved in the last battle of the Civil War at Fort Blakely.

Mr. and Mrs. Craig moved to a farm south of Laurel in the spring of 1898. They retired from farming in 1919 and moved into town. “Daddy” Craig, as he was affectionately known, died on December 7, 1926. (NOTE: His first name is Calvin not Cavin.)

The following information contributed by: Roger Tryon, Laurel NE. EdwrdTryn@aol.com
Derby moved to Laurel around 1909.
The 2nd Iowa was involved in many battles but one in particular is worthy of mention. While serving under Col. Phil Sheridan near Booneville, Mississippi (located north of Tupelo MS), in July 1862, an 800-man brigade made up of the 2nd Iowa and the 2nd Michigan cavalries was nearly surrounded by 5,000 Confederates. Sheridan sent a detachment of the 2nd Iowa to make a saber charge on the Confederate rear while his remaining forces attacked from the front. The much larger Rebel army was routed. As a result of this battle, Col. Phil Sheridan was promoted to Brigadier General.

DOBBIN James
UNION CO. C, 91st IL INFANTRY Enlisted: 9/8/1862
Born: 1838 Died: February 1914 Buried: Laurel NE

The following information contributed by: Roger Tryon, Laurel NE. EdwrdTryn@aol.com
When Admiral David Farragut ordered his fleet into Mobile Bay in August 1864, he is quoted as saying: “Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead.” Farragut took out two forts near the mouth of the bay but was unable to breach the defenses of two other forts guarding the city of Mobile. That campaign was put off until the spring of 1865.
Dobbin’s unit, the 91st Illinois, participated in the siege and capture of these two forts. The Spanish Fort fell on April 8, 1865. The next day 16,000 Union troops overran 4,000 Rebels holding Fort Blakeley. It has long been accepted that the Civil War ended with Lee’s surrender at Appomattox Courthouse on April 9, 1865. But the fighting at Fort Blakley lasted six hours after Lee’s surrender.
James Dobbin came to Wayne NE, in 1886, where he operated a dry goods business. His son John Dobbin came to Laurel in 1904, and clerked in Hoile & Ware’s Store. He was working for J.H. Coburn in 1912, when he contracted typhoid fever and died at the age of 27. James Dobbin died in February 1914, and was buried next to his son in the Laurel cemetery.

The 9th Iowa was mustered into service at Dubuque in September 1861. The regiment was loaded onto steamboats and transported to St. Louis. The men spent most of the winter guarding railroad lines in Missouri. Their first real battle was at Pea Ridge, Arkansas (located northeast of Bentonville, Arkansas, near the Missouri border), on March 7-8, 1862. Pea Ridge was one of the pivotal battles of the Civil War and is often credited with keeping Missouri in the Union. The 9th Iowa also took part in the Battle of Arkansas Post, the Siege of Vicksburg, and the Battle of Atlanta. Eby moved to Laurel in 1898 and purchased M.T. Woodruff’s Fruit Store. Following the death of his wife in 1909, Eby lived with a daughter in Emerson until his death on March 20, 1913.

UNION CO. H, 22nd IA INFANTRY
Born: March 5, 1832 Pelham, Hillsboro Co, NH (per obit) Died: January 29, 1916 Buried: Daily Branch Cemetery, Martinsburg, Dixon Co., NE

Married to Catherine Simmons on May 7, 1866 at Marengo IA. Horace and Catherine had 10 children: Edward, Minnie, Harry, Hattie, Gertrude, David, Bert, Ray, Vernon, and Joy.

The following information contributed by: Roger Tryon, Laurel NE. EdwrdTryn@aol.com
Henry moved to Cedar Rapids, IA, in 1854. Five years later he traveled to California in a covered wagon but returned to Iowa when the Civil War began. Grosvenor participated in the Battles of Port Gibson, Champion Hill, Black River Bridge, and Vicksburg, all in Mississippi; Fisher’s Hill and Cedar Creek, both in Virginia. Although overshadowed by the Battle of Gettysburg which occurred about the same time, the fall of Vicksburg split the Confederacy and had a far greater strategic impact than Gettysburg.

Grosvenor came to Sioux City in 1871 and traveled by boat to the town of Ionia, Dixon County, NE. He homesteaded near Daily in Dixon Co., where he remained until moving to Laurel, Cedar Co., NE, in 1908.

GUIN / GWIN Noah C.
UNION CO. F&G, 142nd OH INFANTRY; CO. F 65th OH Rank: Private Enlisted: Nov. 2, 1861 Discharged: Nov. 10, 1862
Born: 1837 Died: December 18, 1921 Grand Island, NE (www.suvcwdb.org) Buried: Laurel NE

The following information contributed by: Roger Tryon, Laurel NE. EdwrdTryn@aol.com
Noah was living in Holmes County, OH, when the war broke out. Civil War records place him in Co. D of the 15th Ohio Infantry and also in Co. F of the 65th Ohio Infantry. The 15th and the 65th both were organized at Mansfield, Ohio, and seem to have been sent to the same places.

During the three years Gwin was in the service, the 15th and 65th were in some of the bloodiest battles of the Civil War including Shiloh TN (approximately 100 miles east of Memphis, TN), Chickamauga GA (located just south of Chattanooga), and Chattanooga TN. With more than 34,000 killed and wounded on both sides, Chickamauga ranks behind Gettysburg as the second costliest battle of the Civil War.

Mr. and Mrs. Gwin came to Laurel, NE, in 1894, and started a jewelry store on the south side of Main Street. At the time of his retirement in 1913, Gwin was drawing a Civil War pension of $17 a month. He died at the Soldier’s and Sailor’s Home near Grand Island on December 6, 1921.

He enrolled at Dakota City, October 20,th 1862 in Company I of the second Regiment of Nebraska Cavalry and served in line of duty at Fort Randall in the Territory of Dakota, during the civil War.

The following information contributed by: Roger Tryon, Laurel NE. EdwrdTryn@aol.com
GUSTAV A. KOCH, or “Adolph” Koch as he was generally known, was born in Germany in 1839. He came to the United States in 1856 and settled in Illinois. Koch’s obituary states that he was a member of Co. I of the 31st Illinois Infantry, but Civil war records do not list him as a member of that unit. An Adolph “Cook” is listed, however, as a member of Co. I of the 33rd Illinois.

Company I was organized in Pike County, Ill., where Mr. Koch lived at the time. Organized by Charles Hovey, President of the Normal University of Bloomington, the 33rd was dubbed the “Teachers’ Regiment.” Many, but not all, of the volunteers were teachers or students in area schools. The 33rd was derided as the “Brain Regiment” and some people joked that members of this outfit wouldn’t obey an order unless the grammar and spelling were correct. Another joke was that anyone discharged from the 33rd for mental incapacity became a commissioned officer in another regiment.

The 33rd participated in the Siege of Vicksburg and several battles leading up it. After Vicksburg, the 33rd was assigned to garrison and guard duty in Louisiana. Like other volunteer regiments, the men enlisted for a three-year tour. When their time was up, some of the members reenlisted in the 33rd Veterans Regiment and went on to fight at Fort Blakely. The ones who did not, presumably including Koch, were sent north in charge of Confederate prisoners.

Adolph Koch moved to Cedar County around 1893 and lived near Coleridge. He moved to Laurel, NE, in 1919 where he died on December 22, 1923.

SOURCE: SS Phillip and James Catholic Church 1904-2000, c. 2000:
     In 1870, Moses Deming, sheriff, was called to clear up the mystery of a bachelor on Brookey’s Bottom called Henry Locke. Deming tracked the half-white, half-negro killer to Sioux City, but lost him. Eleven months later the Sheriff went to Omaha to bring back MacBeth. In Yankton they wanted to lynch him before the sheriff could get him back to Cedar Co. He got to St. Helena on a Sunday morning and couldn’t find the county judge so lined the people up on both sides of the street to vote whether he was guilty or not. They voted to hang him.
     A year later the community and sheriff realized a man called McBeath using the name of Jameson left the steamer Penniah, got off the boat a little above Yankton and came across the country, stopping to spend the night at the Locke cabin. Locke entertained him. The following morning the two were walking. Locke was carrying an axe to cut some wood in the timber. Locke was killed when Jameson took the axe from him. The only plunder he got from Locke was an old watch and $1.50 in money.
     Henry Locke has the distinction of being the 1st man murdered in Cedar County. He was a brother to civil war veteran Charles W.R. Locke.

The following information contributed by: Roger Tryon, Laurel NE. EdwrdTryn@aol.com
Henry came to America shortly before the Civil War began. Nat'l Park Service Civil War Soldiers database indicates Massow was a private in Company C of the 18th Missouri Infantry. If this information is accurate, Massow most likely would have been in the battle of Shiloh, Tennessee, on April 6-7, 1862. With more than 23,000 killed and wounded on both sides Shiloh was one of the ten bloodiest battles of the Civil War.

Mr. and Mrs. Massow came to Laurel in 1901. Following the death of his wife in 1903, Massow lived with his daughter, Mrs. August Michels, on a farm south of Laurel.

     Sheriff Asbra, the next sheriff after M. Deming, had a man called John that worked for him. John abused the horsed they used and John was let go. John became angry and decided to do revenge on the sheriff, burning 240 tons of hay that belonged to the sheriff. Chris Schaller went to Capt. Phillips and told him where John was at. John fired at both Phillips and Schaller as they tracked him. John climbed in a window in the Marx home and called to Deputy Sheriff Phillips that he would surrender if Phillips would come in the house. John hid under the bed with a revolver. Phillips entered the house with a lantern and a pistol. John fired on him as soon as he entered the room, two missed their mark but the third one hit him in the side going right along his spine.
     Phillips fired and missed John but tussled with him even though he was dangerously injured until Billy Trouten came to his assistance. John was removed to Sheriff Asbra’s office tied to two boards and hung shortly after.
     Phillip’s recovery was doubtful, all the care and medical assistance that was possible was given to him. He was an old soldier and settler and highly respected. Many visitors stopped at his home in St. James. They had hung the wrong man for Henry Locke’s murder and didn’t know this until the next year. Phillips died in 1875, around May.
