Name: James O. ChamplinRank: Sergeant Company: A
Sgt. Champlin, my great-great grandfather, was wounded at Shiloh and was missing in action at Corinth. His body was not identified and is presumed to be buried in an 'Unknown' grave at Corinth National Cemetery.

The following is a deposition given by an infantry officer in support of a pension application for Champlin's orphaned children. This oath was given at the Office of the Clerk of the Circuit, on January 15, 1864. The original was penned in longhand and has been transcribed exactly as written.


State of Wisconsin
County of Green Lake

George Graves having duly sworn upon his oath says that he is 2nd Lieutenant of Co. A. 16th Regt. Of Wisconsin Volunteers, and was with said Company at the Battle of Pittsburgh Landing, fought on the 6th & 7th days of April 1862, and the Battle of Corinth fought on the 3rd day of October of the same year. Deponent further says that he was personally acquainted with James O. Champlin one of the sergeants of said Company; that the said James O. volunteered at the City of Berlin at the time of the organization of said Company; they then fought with the said Company at the said Battle of Pittsburgh Landing and also at the Battle of Corinth whereas this deponent verily believes he was killed by the enemy. Deponent further says that the reasons why he believes that the said James O. was killed at the Battle of Corinth as aforesaid are the following.

On the day of the battle said Co. A. was detached from the Regiment and marched out towards the enemy to support skirmishers; that while thus detached they were attacked by a large force of the enemy and driven back; that while said attack was made by the rebels the said James O. was in his place in said Company; that the said Co. was lying down when attacked, the said James O. with them, that the place where they were lying was swept by a terrific crossfire by the rebel troops but a short distance from them; that the Co. was forced to retire and when they did so the said James O. was missing and has not to the knowledge of this deponent, not to the knowledge of any one of the Co. so far as this deponent can ascertain been seen or heard of since that time. That at the time of said attack one of the members of said Co. was taken prisoner and remained with the rebels a prisoner for two or three months; that said soldier stated to this affiant that said James O. was not taken prisoner as then believed. That the killed after the battle were buried by negroes.

Deponent further says that the said James O. was a faithful and brave soldier and a true patriot; that he fought bravely at the Battle of Pittsburgh Landing, was wounded and sent home until he should recover from his wounds; after his recovery returned to his regiment and discharged his duties promptly and efficiently; that he knows as well as he can know such a fact that the said James O. did not desert, and that he has no doubt that he was killed in battle as above stated.


I corresponded with the Wisconsin Veterans Museum regarding the type of rifle issued to the 16th Wisconsin in 1861. I was told that they received the Dresden Rifle Musket. This firearm was manufactured in Liege, Belgium, and sold in Dresden, Germany, hence the name. The rifle was .58 caliber, 53-inches long, and weighed about 9-pounds.

Name: William . ScrantonRank: Private Company: B
My gg grandfather, William Scranton,joined the 16th Inf in Feb. 1864. At the time, he lived in Springwater with his wife Jane [Coats] and 4 small children. I have searched for years for his burial site. All we have ever heard is he was buried in the South. His NARA medical card shows he died July 8, 1865 of typhoid in Brown USA Hospital in Louisville. His widows pension file shows date of death as July 24. The Wisconsin Red and Blue books have him mustered out July 11, with no discharge furnished. ?? Considering he died at the end of the war in a hospital, there must be a record of what they did with him. Any help appreciated. Thanks, Ken

Frederick died July 21, 1864 during the Siege of Atlanta,GA. In a letter home to brother Charles on July 25, 1864 Jacob wrote 'It's very hard to report to you that Frederick is no more. He was killed on the morning of July 21st in a charge on the field....shot in the right breast and he died in five minutes from the time he was hit. We gained the rebel work but with the loss of many brave men....Give my respects to father,mother,and the rest. Tell them to look at Fredericks death as lightly as possible. He died for his country and he now rests in peace.' He was 17 when he died.
