  1. I have copies of letters that Preston Kiser wrote home from Nashville, TN before he died there.And he mentions several of the men in this unit. also William Lonberger was his brother-in-law. Preston’s wife Catherine Lonberger Kiser was my ggg-great aunt. I would be glad to share what letters I have or all his letters can be found at the IN State Archives.

    • Nikki Needham-Price Says:

      I’d love to read these letters and get an idea of what my great great uncle Peter Needham, and my great great grandfather, Salathiel Henderson Needham went through on a daily basis

  2. Scott Lewellen Says:

    Horace C. Seely was my great-grandfather, and Solomon was his brother. How do I find out the type of wound(s) suffered, because he re-enlisted later in the war as a musician – makes me think the wounds prevented further infantry duties. Where in Indiana might one visit to learn more about him?

    • 40thindiana Says:

      Scott, Horace received a severe wound to his right forearm at Stones River. His name appears at the end of the Stones River After Action Report. His name was listed in the report as Seeley. I have changed that so you can use the site search. Solomon was wounded at Kennesaw Mt., Ga. The best source for Horace would be his pension records from the National Archives.

  3. Scott Lewellen (great-grandson) Says:

    Thank you so much for this information. I will look at the National Archives. Interestingly, while wounded at Stones River at New Years, he was not discharged and sent home til August. Too severe to travel or a minor wound that festered??? Solomon died July 27, 1864 – Kennesaw Mt was fought June 27 – either he died a month later or his death date is wrong. Horace reenlisted on March 27, 1864 with the Indiana 11th Regiment Volunteers and was appointed as a ‘principal musician’ (result of wound perhaps). He ended up with Sheridan in the Shenandoah Campaign in late ’64. I have a diary of his from early 1865. I have documented much of his travels with the 40th and the 11th, and would love to forward it to someone who might be interested, and to have it checked for additions, subtractions, and corrections. Thanks again!

    • 40thindiana Says:

      Scott, I would love any information you have collected and willing to share. The story of Horace is very interesting, waht a journey he had. From what I am finding, Solomon lay wounded for a month before he passed.The regimental roster says he died 7/27/64. The Indiana Digital Collection is giving the same death date and the notation “Wounded at Kenesaw Mt., GA., June 27, 1864. Died of wounds July 27, 1864.” The digital record is from the soldier’s information card held by the state. You can find the digital records here:http://www.indianadigitalarchives.org/TitleInfo.aspx?TID=77

      It was not uncommon for a soldier to lay wounded for a month or more before passing from a wound. I’m glad you are enjoying the blog.

        To Scott from Scott!

        Am reading the After Action Report as I write, and will update my several page chronicle. I will send the whole updated version to you soon. Very interesting about Company G’s commander Blake being intoxicated and arrested during the battle. Thanks for the further info on Solomon. Imagine fighting side by side with your brother . . .

        Thanks so much!! I may need a trip to Indiana and Stones River Battlefield. I live in western New York State.

        Scott

      • 40thindiana Says:

        Thank You Scott, look forward to the information. Here in Montgomery County is the final resting place for Capt. Kirkpatrick of company G. He was killed leading the company at Kennesaw.

        Scott

      • Scott and Brenda Lewellen Says:

        Scott.

        See attached what I have put together regarding Horace Seely and the 40th. I would gladly accept corrections and additions should you have them. Still much to learn. Thanks!

        Scott

  4. what day was he killed? My great great grand father was killed there too.

  5. Very interesting to read. I have an image of “Billy Harrington” Co.G at a Post 42 re-Union wearing the Rich Mountain ribbon, Lebanon, Indiana. Glad he was identified on the image, so many are not. I’m wondering what the population was in West Point back in 1861, if the population has grown to 250 in 2012? They must have sent all of their young men into the War?

    • 40thindiana Says:

      It’s great you have that image! I’m not sure of the population of West Point, you would have to check the 1860 census. Iwould almost bet it is close to what it is now. Those young men were ready for an adventure!

  6. Billy or Wm Harrington is an ancestor of mine…he’s another great great grandfather of mine…could you e-mail a copy of the picture to me, please? It would mean so much to me,

  7. George A Lowther Says:

    I am the great great grandson of Salethial Needham and I am willing to go to the National Cemetery in Marietta to look for and graves that might be there. Looked for Salethial’s but was un able to find it. Some 3000 are unmarked as when the bodies were dug up for reburial the casket were marked with the names they knew, with caulk and the rains came and washed a lot of names away. But I live 7 miles away so let me know if you need any pictures. Company G 40th was on the Mud Creek Line approaching Kennesaw on the day Salethial was killed. There is a Lowe’s Home Improvement store located in that area now. A lot of shopping and Kennesaw Mountain is in the background.

    George A Lowther

    • Nikki Needham-Price Says:

      George, you mean that if I want to go down to mourn our ggreat grandfather that I will be in a Lowe’s parking lot?? I thought they had made the graves hallowed ground!! I still wish we had his remains up here and not just some damn stone.

  8. 40thindiana Says:

    Thank You George. Any 40th Indiana grave pictures would be great. Sorry for the slow response, I have been in Florida. I have been to the park before, it is ashamed that the positions of the 40th are pretty much gone. Was not aware of the story behind why there are so many unmarked graves. Thank You.

    Scott
