Privates

'But who among the private soldiers is named? Have the dead been mentioned except in numbers? Have the cripples been referred to except in the aggregate? Yet it was the rank and file that stood the shock of battle and that gave blow for blow. It was the columns of soldiers that charged the enemy or stood like a rock against fierce assaults. Does history do more with the name of the private soldier than bundle it up with a thousand others and call the combination a regiment?' -- Captain W. J. Patterson, 62d Pennsylvania Infantry Regiment"

Montgomery Cooke

Wounded at Gettysburg, 2 July 1863. Absent, in hospital at muster out.

Civil War Veterans' Card File, 1861-1866: Age at Enrollment: 18; Occupation: Farmer; Residence: Allegheny County; Hair: Light; Eyes: Blue; Complexion: Light; Height: 5'3 1/2" Remarks: Pr. to Musc. (date unknown). (Wounded at Gettysburg 7-2-63 in Hospital at M.O. Bates). Rolls show name as Cook.

Died in 6 January 1921, according to Proceedings of the 56th Annual Encampment of the Department of Pennsylvania Grand Army of the Republic (Altoona, 1922). Buried in Union Dale Cemetery, Pittsburgh.

Harvey L. Coonce
[or Koontz]

Died before first battle, 9 December 1861. Buried in Military Asylum Cemetery, D.C.

Civil War Veterans' Card File, 1861-1866 [under Coonce, Harvey]: Age at Enrollment: 21; Occupation: Farmer; Residence: Venango County; Hair: Fair; Eyes: Dark; Complexion: Dark; Height: 5'11"

Bates lists surname as Coonce, but Koontz appears to be the more common spelling. H. and H. S. Koontz are listed in the History of Washington County. Even if residence was listed as Venango County in the CWVCF, the 1860 Census has no listing for anyone named Coonce. However, Harvey Koontz is included in the files for Canton Township in Washington County. His occupation was Day Labor, his age 25, and his race was Mulatto. He was living with Rachel McCoslin, a 58 year old farmer, who was also a mulatto. Harvey was born in Pennsylvania; and I think Rachel was born in Virginia.

Henry Coonce
[or Koontz]

Discharged 19 December 1861

Civil War Veterans' Card File, 1861-1866: Age at Enrollment: 43; Occupation: Farmer; Residence: Mercer County; Hair: Fair; Eyes: Blue; Complexion: Dark; Height: 5'7 3/4"

Likely the H. or H. S. Koontz listed in the History of Washington County, even if residence was listed as Mercer County.

It seems likely that Harvey and Henry were related, but I can't find a connection. Their ages are a generation apart. If both had Washington County connections, each listed a different residence when mustering in. Of the many variations on the name Koontz/Coonce [from Coons to Kuhn], I can't find any Henry in the 1860 census that matches closely with the age and occupation of Henry Coonce/Koontz of Company K, in any county in Pennsylvania, or in Maryland, Virginia, or Ohio.

Not found in Bates.

According to stories handed down in the family, John, a head taller than his older brother, lied about his age to join the regiment to fight with his brother, Corporal William Friesell. Both served at Gettysburg. Both were covered in mud during a battle, and William found John and carried him back to get his wounds treated. Both survived without injury. John lost a hand in a railroad accident after the war.

Thanks to George Friesell for alerting me to Friesell's presence in the regiment.

Appears to have committed a minor offense in the spring of 1863, based on the notation in his military record: "$15.93 to be stopped by court martial and loss of accoutrements in arrest."

Returned to the Pittsburgh area after the war and married Margaret (Mary) Schmidt in 1866. Fortunately she was a Catholic -- fortunate since Jacob's father William included this item in his will: "I further order decree and impose on my son, Jacob Martin, to marry a Catholic wife and is to live in accordance with said church as I teached him, and, if not, he is to receive no part or portion of my property but such sum or sums as I received from him whilst in the army and one dollar as a bequest to be paid him by my daughter Julyanne at any time after my decease." Jacob and and his wife had 13 children, 4 sons and 9 daughters. After the war, Jacob's occupations varied. According to different census records, he was a horse dealer, a butcher, and driver. He was active in the Republican party. He applied for an invalid pension on 19 March 19 1915, and died on 23 April 1918, during the flu epidemic. Jacob is buried in St. Boniface Catholic Cemetery, Ross Township.

John Winters

The record is confused. May have enrolled in either Company E or Company K, neither or both. John Winters is also listed among the unassigned soldiers. There is no record of him serving in Company K, other than note in 155th P.V. roster. John Winters transferred to Company B, 155th P. V., 3 July 1864. Transferred to Company E, 191st P. V., 2 June 1865. Although his name was transferred, I am not sure he was present. Bates lists Winters in Company E with note as "Not on muster-out roll." Bates lists Winters among Unassigned Soldiers with note "Transferred to Company B, 155th regiment P. V., 3 July 1864."

According to the CWVCF, two days after John Winters enrolled as a private in Company E in Meadville, Pa. [29 March 1864], John Winters enrolled as a private in Company H of the 4th Pennsylvania Cavalry [31 March 1864]. Both men were listed as aged 23. No addtional personal information is listed for the cavalry volunteer. He was captured 10 December 1864 and confined at Salisbury, N. C. It appears Winters enrolled in the 62d, changed his mind and served in the cavalry, instead, creating records that were never cleared up.

Cyrus Workman

Mustered in at Monongahela City. Died 1 August 1862 of wound recieved at Gaines Mill, Va., 27 June 1862.

Civil War Veterans' Card File, 1861-1866: Age at Enrollment: 28; Occupation: Miner; Residence: Monongahela City, Pa.; Hair: Dark; Eyes: Blue; Complexion: Fair; Height: 5'7" Remarks: (Died 8-1-62 wounds received at Gaines Mill, Va. 6-27-62. Bates).

Workman is also listed in History of Washington County, Pennsylvania (1926). He enlisted at the same time as Lewis Workman, who was probably a relative, but not a brother.

According to the 1860 Census for Monongahela City, he was a Pennsylvania born miner, 30 years of age, and living with his wife Jane and two children. The 1850 Census lists a 19 year old [L?]yrus Workman living in Elizabeth Township, Allegheny County, with Samule Workman (a younger brother?), and a family named Hartner. No occupation was listed for either Workman, but many other men on the same page were coal diggers.

Lewis Workman
portrait of John Lewis Cribbs

Mustered in at Monongahela City. Wounded at Gettysburg. Mustered out with company, 13 July 1864.

Civil War Veterans' Card File, 1861-1866: Age at Enrollment: 21; Occupation: Miner; Residence: Monongahela City, Pa.; Hair: Dark; Eyes: Brown; Complexion: Fair; Height: 5'5" Remarks: (Wounded at Gettysburg. 7-2-63. Bates).

Lewis Workman was born in 1843 in Fayette Co., Pa., to Lewis and Sarah Workman. According to the 1850 Census the family was residing in Monongahela, Pa. Lewis, Sr., was a glass teaser, and two of his sons were glass blowers. Lewis, the son, is listed as 13 years old.

A tintype of Workman in a zouave uniform suggests that before the war he was a member Tower Zouaves in Monongahela, Pa., where he lived in 1860. He enlisted at the same time as Cyrus Workman, who was probably a relative, but not a brother.

He may have been a glass blower before the war, but his occupation on the CWVCF was miner, and he worked as a coal miner after the war. He married his first wife, Caroline, in 1866, and they lived in Forward Township, Allegheny Co., near Monongahela. They had four daughters. Lewis married Mary A. in 1891 after Caroline's death around 1888-89. In July 1900, Lewis died of blood poisoning (cause unknown) at age 57. He was living in Monessen, Rostraver Township, Westmoreland Co., at the time of his death. His widow Mary filed for his veterans' benefits in August 1900.

Lewis Workman is buried in the GAR section of the Monongahela Cemetery, Monongahela, PA.

Thanks to Sue Wert for the tintype of her great great grandfather (through his daughter Margaret) and to Sue and Lindsay Wilson, a Workman family researcher, for the additional personal informationa about Lewis Workman.
