Lewis ASH

Lewis Ash enlisted in the NH 7th Infantry Company "D" on 11/06/1861.  He listed his place of residence as Deerfield, NH.  He was originally from St. Hyacinthe, Quebec, Canada before coming to Vermont first. I'm not sure how he got or why he was in Deerfield, NH.  He was in for 3years until  Dec. 1863.  He reenlisted 2/29/1864 in Manchester, Hillsborough Co.  Mustered in 3/21/1864 Hilton Head, SC.  He deserted on 5/18/1864 while on furlough in NH.  I have not been able to prove it and am trying to research it, but I believe he deserted because this was the time of his first wife's death. During his three years of service, he was a cook in the company kitchen and he also did extra duty as a boatman.  I have his military and
pension records from the National Archives in Washington, DC. The only documents that seem to be missing are his enlistment papers from 1861.  I do have his reenlistment papers from 1864.  I was wondering if the state of NH would have records for his enlistment in 1861 and if so, how would I go about obtaining them?  I am also interested in knowing if a picture was ever taken of him?  I'm not sure if cooks and boatman would get their pictures taken.

After the war he moved back to Vermont and lived in Burke, VT and met my gg grandmother, Kathleen (Kate) Gero.  They married in 1870 and they had their first of seven children in 1871.  He died 1/22/1890 in Bloomfield, VT and is buried in Island Pond, VT. in the old Catholic Cemetery there.  I do not know if he is entitled to a military marker since he deserted, but he did serve three years previous to that. His gravestone is broken and his name is eroded somewhat, the death date is very clear. (Source: Karen Cate)

CHARLES PAGE

Charles Page, born Abt. 1820 in Strafford, New Hampshire; died 15 October 1864 in Fortress Monroe, City Point, Virginia.   He married  LUCY C. TILTON 11 April 1843 in Epping, New Hampshire.
Charles enlisted Aug. 8, 1862. He served in Co. E , 2nd NH Volunteer Infantry.
Charles is described in his Military Record as 5'8'', light complexion, blue eyed with dark hair. When he was mustered in, he rec'd $13 in advance. Records state he was not paid again until 1863. He is on the Co. muster roll from Sept. '62. He was absent sick during April '63. In Jan/Feb of '64, he enjoyed a 21 day furlough. Charles was also reported as dying Nov. 12 , 1864 in Philadelphia. The 2nd NH Vol. Infantry was organized in 1861 and fought at first Bull Run. Charles enlisted in Aug. of 1862 for 3 years. In the period of his service, the regiment fought at 2nd Bull Run , but Charles was probably not there. Charles is listed on the State Disbursement list from Sept. 1 , 1862 to April 1 , 1863 , his family  receiving $84 .
On Dec. 11, at Fredericksburg, the 2nd was luckily engaged guarding a bridge crossing and engaged in skirmishing instead of Burnside's frontal assaults. Furloughed back to NH in Feb. '63, in May they were on the March to Gettysburg. In Sickles' Corp , Humphrey's Division, they would fight in the Peach Orchard on July 2. After several hours of waiting under fire, rebels under Kershaw and Semmes began pressing a battery (Battery B NJ w/Martin Donohue, another ancestor) the 2nd was supporting. The 2nd charged, with the 3rd Maine and 68th Penn. in support, then gave ground grudgingly to the numerically superior rebels. Taking 354 officers and men into battle, the 2nd lost 193, with 47 KIA or dying from their wounds. In " New England Vital Records from the Exeter News Letter" by Scott Lee Chipman, 1859-1865, a letter from Charles, "written on the battlefield" is quoted giving the local casualties . After Gettysburg, the 2nd became prison guards on the Chesapeake until April of '64. They were then attached to Butler's Army of the James until the end of May, then rejoined the Army of the Potomac for the slaughter of Cold Harbor, losing 16 killed and about 60 wounded. They then took part in the siege of Petersburg, with it's disease and death , before returning to the Bermuda Hundred area. (Regimental movements from Martin Haynes' book, "History of the 2nd Regt. New Hampshire Volunteers")
Somewhere in this time, Charles would sicken and die of disease on Oct. 15, 1864 at Fortress Monroe in Va. Regt. muster rolls report him absent sick for Sept. and Oct . Records would call it "the lung disease", "camp fever", and "Phthisis Pulmonalis". Charles is buried in the National Cemetery in Hampton, Virginia. He is #3112 and lies in row 3, section E, grave 30 The 2nd also fought at : Chancellorsville (May 3 '63); Loudon Valley (July 20);Brandy Station (Aug. 1); York Co. (April 7 '64) ; Petersburg (May 8); Swift's Creek (May 9); Drewry's Bluff (May 14 & 16); Cold Harbor (June 1-9); Petersburg (June -Aug).
