Additions to Veterans’ List – F

Posted By on May 23, 2013

Veterans of the Civil War identified as having some connection to the Lykens Valley area and included in the Civil War Research Project was last updated 19 April 2012.  In a series of posts continuing intermittently until concluding in mid-June, a brief sketch of each of the new names added since then will be presented.  Note that in a few cases, the persons are not veterans, but have been identified with some Civil War event or are related to a Civil War veteran.  At the conclusion of the listing of these added names, the Veterans list will be updated with the new names, re-alphabetized, and presented in a new format which includes the Project File Number for each individual.

Additional information is sought on each of the individuals in the Veterans’ List.  Comments can be added to the blog post or information can be sent by e-mail.  Of particular interest are stories, pictures, military records, pension information, and genealogies.

Abbreviations:  CW#Civil War Research Project File Number.  MI = Mustered In.  MO = Mustered Out.  NARA = National Archives and Records Administration Microfilm Series and Roll Number.  POW = Prisoner of War.  AKA = Also Known As.  Months are abbreviated with the standard 3-letter abbreviation.

    I’m researching a John Fuller who was in the 50th Pennsylvania Infantry, and for whom you have an entry (WC#F111). I have a little to add. His wife was Sarah, and John and Sarah are both buried in the Sunshine Cemetery in Boulder, Colorado. He died in 1905. I will take a picture of his grave marker, to send you.
    Can you tell me if he fought in the battle of Gettysburg? I see that the 50th Pennsylvania Infantry was at Gettysburg, and he enrolled in September of 1861, so the timing would match.
    Thank you very much,
    Haydee
