Who Was Samuel Shoop? (Part 3 of 3).

Posted By on July 12, 2011

This is the final part of the three part series entitled “Who Was Samuel Shoop?”  In this post, the remaining Samuel Shoop‘s will be noted.  Much of the information is from the Pennsylvania Veterans’ Card File which is from the Pennsylvania Archives.  It is not know if this last post includes all the possible Samuel Shoop‘s.  The ones that are readily apparent from the Soundex records are given here.

——————————

SAMUEL SHOOP (unknown birth – unknown death).  Enrolled in Sanno Independent Infantry Company, enrolled and mustered in 15 September 1862 at Harrisburg.  He was discharged on 24 September1862.  His age at enrollment is recorded as “not shown.”  This is likely a person who should be included in the Civil War Research Project and may be same person as the Samuel F. Shoop who served in the 1864 Sanno Independent Cavalry.

——————————

SAMUEL SHOOP (born about 1841 – death date unknown).  enrolled in the 130th Pennsylvania Infantry, Company H, at Halifax, Dauphin County, 9 August 1862, at age 21.   He was mustered in as a Private in Harrisburg on 12 August 1862.  He was mustered out on 21 May 1863, at Harrisburg.  This is a strong candidate for inclusion in the Civil War Research Project.  Originally, this Samuel Shoop was connected with the Samuel Shoop from Jackson and Jefferson Townships who lost his leg while serving in the 200th Pennsylvania Infantry, but there is no record in the pension file for that Samuel Shoop to indicate service in the 130th Pennsylvania Infantry.  The Samuel Shoop of the 130th Pennsylvania Infantry is being researched by historian and author Dennis W. Brandt and any information that could be helpful to him can be sent to him directlyClick to contact.

SAMUEL R. SHUPE [aka SHOUPE] (born about November 1831 – died about 1904).  He first served in the 4th Pennsylvania Infantry, Company B, as a Private, enrolling and mustering in on 20 April 1861 at Harrisburg.  One record indicates the muster location was in Montgomery County.  He was mustered out on 27 July 1861.  He also served in the 13th Pennsylvania Cavalry, Company H, recruited at Philadelphia, and mustered in 14 August 1862.  He was discharged on a Surgeon’s Certificate on 18 May 1865.  This Samuel married Isabella (?).  He died in Montgomery County and is buried at St. James Perkiomen Church Cemetery, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.  It appears from preliminary information that there is no connection with the Lykens Valley area.

SAMUEL SHOUP (born about 1844 – died 18 September 1864).  Enrolled in the 16th Pennsylvania Cavalry, Company B, as a Private on 16 September at Fayette County, Pennsylvania.  Mustered in at Harrisburg on 24 September 1862.  His age at enrollment was 18.  At some point in his service he was transferred to Company A.  On 17 June 1864 he was captured in action and taken to Andersonville, Georgia, where he died as a Prisoner of War on 18 September 1864.  He is buried in Andersonville National Cemetery, Grave #9138.

SAMUEL SHOOP (born about 1843 – died 19 August 1864).  Enrolled in the 103rd Pennsylvania Infantry, Company K, as a Private, in Kittanning, Pennsylvania, on 1 February 1862.  He mustered in on 22 February 1862, at Camp Orr, Pennsylvania.  His personal information is in the records, namely that he was from Armstrong County, was 19 years old at enrollment, 5 foot 4 inches tall, brown hair, light complexion, blue eyes, and occupation of farmer.  Samuel re-enlisted in this regiment on 20 April 1864 at Plymouth, North Carolina, and was shortly thereafter captured and taken to Andersonville, Georgia.  He died as a Prisoner of War on 19 August 1864 and is buried in Andersonville National Cemetery, Grave #6205.
