'Deposition A

Case of Rufus K Ward, No. 487626



On this Thirtenth day of November, 1889, at Grassy Creek. County of Hawkins State of Tennessee, before me D D Luke, a Special Examiner of the Pension Office, personally appeared Rufus K Ward, who, being by me first duly sworn to answer truly all interrogatories propounded to him during this Special Examination of aforesaid pension claim, deposes and says: My age 63 years (?part) farmer P.O. Van Hill Hawkins Co Tenn. I am the identical Rufus K Ward who served in Co A 1st Tenn Cavalry and who is now claiming pension for Rheumatism contracted in the service and in line of duty. I am also troubled with pulpulation of the heart which I am told is caused by Rheumatism, but I have based my claim on Rheumatism (?simply). I enlisted the 15th day of Nov 61 in Green Co Tenn with Capt David Fry and on the 17th day of Dec 61 I was captured by the rebels in the edge of Green Co, I was taken with fifteen others. I was kept on fatigue duty by the rebals until the 27th night of Aug 62. I escaped from them that night and swam the tennessee river between Chattanooga and Harrison, and made my way through the mountains until i got back to Chimny Top Mountain in Hawkins Co Tenn. Then I enlisted squad of men and made my way to Camp Dennison Ohio with my men. We went afoot until we got to Lexington Ky. and there I got transportation to (?Covington) Ky and there the Col met me. I had telegraphed him from Lexington. I had about a hundred men by time I got through to Lexington. It was about the 15th of October, or a few

days thereabout when I got to the command. I was offered a Captaincy but I said I didn’t want it, that I preferred to serve as private and the men then went to other companies. I returned with Co A of said regiment until I was discharged the 19th of June 65

at Nashville Tenn. I served as private all the time. I never served in

any other organization, military or naval except as I said doing fa-

tigue duty with the rebel while a prisoner. I was in Co K 29 Tenn

Confederate Infy. Samuel Powel was Colonel. On the 12th day of (? January) 63 I went on a recruiting tour from Louisville Ky into the mountainous part of Ky, returning to the regiment about

the first of (???) 63. The Commander of the post gave me (? The mision/Permission). I don’t now remember the number of men I

enlisted, but quite a number- my recruiting papers and the (? Descriptive) roll of men enlisted are on file at Washington. I was absent from the command only after that when down with rheumatism. I contracted rheumatism in June or July 63 either in Tenn or Ala. I don’t remember the place. The rheumatism was in leggs and feet and all over the body. I was not able to walk. I never had rheumatism before in my life I never knew what is was before I have rheumatism. I was a sound healthy man at date of my enlistment and when I found my command at (?Covington) Ky.

Sometime in June 64 I suffered so with rheumatism that I was

(????) traveling and I was (? Taken) (? on my) (? home) with the command but I did no duty. I mean by (?traveling) that I was not able to walk on account of my suffering from rheumatism. In Dec 64 at the time of the Nashville fight and when my company left Nashville to go to (?waterlou) I was not able to go with it and I was left at Nashville and (???) Brooks left a man in charge of me. William (? Simpson) left with me. (? Now dead.) in a few days I got on a train and came to Tyners station Tenn and lay there sick until the 7th day of April 1865. I was at a (?????) (?home.) Michael Hensly was in the same Co with me, and I remained at his (?home) Tyner Station and his wife took care of me. The soldiers who were guarding the place fixed up a cot and placed me on it and sent me to Knoxville Tenn where my wife took care of me. I remained there till some time in May when I was sent to Nashville to be mustard out. I was then only able to stand on crutches. I could

not walk a step without them. I came home to Hawkins Co where

I (?lived) previous to my enlistment. I had to use crutches

about 18 months after my return. I have been obliged to use a

cane ever since in walking. I took no (????????) in the army and never was in a hospital. I have treated myself since the service, never taken any medicine from a physician. From 65 to 70 I was not able to do any work, much of the time I was not able to get around except on crutches. From 70 to 80 I did some work but I never have been able to do any work without suffering great pain from rheumatism. In march 72 I moved to Miss. in Pontotic Co and hired hands and ran a cotton farm there. I remained there four years then moved to Whitfield Co GA and remained there about six years. My P.O. in Missippi was Sherman (Stu???.) Jesse

(???) on where (????) I lived knows me in Miss. In GA Samuel Prince and Samuel Dover P.O. Tunnel Hill Whitfield Co. I then came back to Hawkins Co and have been here since. Comrads who will know of my disabilities in the army are, Arthur Arnold, william Bleckley, Blevins Gap, (??) Joseph (????) Sneedville

Hancock Co, Simeon Collins, near to (????.) I don’t care to present in the examination of my claim. I have understood your questions and my answers are correctly written.
