Name: George OvingtonRank: Private Company: I
Please can you add my relative to your database ? He should be added to the 6th Regiment West Virginia Infantry. Also please can you help me to understand certain features of George's records. I am a complete beginner and live in England. George is my GGfather and was born in England in 1817.

On his records he seems to have spent several spells in hospital - most notably in USA General Hospital in Cumberland, Maryland. The word 'loss' is mentioned so does this mean he lost a limb or does it have another meaning ? I think George survived the actual conflict but must have died before 1871 as his widow returned to the UK with 5 children in tow. She remarried in the UK in 1872.

I have only just found George so I am fascinated to learn more - I just need some help !

With kindest regards,

Anne Marie Ainsley from England.

Seeking information about John Arthur. I am his great-great grandson. I knew both of his sons in their elder years, but little of John is known. I do know that he moved to Pittsburgh after the war. I also believe that he had brothers who were in the Confederate Army.

Name: Elijah D. GoughRank: Private Company: L

Elijah D. Goff (sic) enrolled in the 173rd Militia in Preston County under J.H. Shafer in Company D on June 23, 1863 at Rowlesburg. However, the record did not record a period of service and under comments indicated 'enlisted in cavalry for a period of six months.' His military records indicate he enlisted into Co. L, 6th Regiment WV Infantry on June 24, 1863. I cannot explain this discrepancy and suspect he was able to switch from the militia to the Volunteer Army. Perhaps he visited the wrong recruiter on the first day! This was only two months after Confederate General 'Grumble: Jones had threatened Preston County in April and it was especially frightening for families living along the B&O in Newburg where Elijah, his wife and children were living.
For the first year after the marriage of Elijah and Martha Ellen Warthen, they lived within a mile of Evansville for a year. Then they moved to the Orr farm and then to Newburg where they lived near the B&O. They were listed in the 1860 census of Preston County. It was while Elijah was working in the coal mines near Scotch Hill (close to Newburg) that he joined the militia and then the army. Elijah enlisted Co. L of the 6th WV Infantry in the rank of musician and he served first at Parkersburg as a fifer for the company. At the time they had 3 children: Martin Luther (b. Oct 16, 1860), Arbell Delilah (b. Sep 1, 1861), and Charles Oliver Gough (b. Feb 10, 1863).
Within a few months of enlistment, Elijah was transferred to Rowlesburg. Ellen moved her family to Rowlesburg to be near him, but shortly thereafter his company was transferred to New Creek. It was there that Elijah was among those men who were captured and taken to prison in Richmond, VA on Nov 28, 1864. He was paroled at Aikens'Landing, SC on Feb 17, 1865 and given 30 days furlough starting March 3, 1865.
When Elijah returned from prison, either his wife moved near the hospital in Grafton or had been living there because, instead of being admitted to the hospital, he lived at home where the hospital steward brought medication to him. Elijah had scorbutus with a running sore on his back the size of a man's hand. Even after 30 days of treatment, it did not heal properly. Nevertheless,he returned to his regiment in late April 1865. He was unable to carry out his assignments, but was mustered out with his regiment on June 10, 1865.
Ellen stated that Elijah started with 'head trouble' while on leave in March and gradually deteriorated over the next few years. After the war, they had more children including Francis Asbury (b. May 17, 1866), William Thomas (b. Oct 17, 1867), Ulysses Grant (b. April 18, 1869), John Wesley (b. July 15, 1870) and Mary Alice Gough (b. Feb 10, 1872). Elijah attempted to support his family by working at a quarry, but couldn't do the job. Then he went to work at the B&O shops in Grafton as a helper to the molders and again couldn't handle his assignments. He gradually became worse, threatened to kill Ellen and complained there was a conspiracy against him. He was finally admitted to the WV Hospital for Insane at Weston on Jan 8, 1872.
The 1880 census of Taylor Co. revealed that Ellen Gough attempted to support her family by washing railroad cars. There was very little change in Elijah and in 1901 he was still in the hospital. Unfortunately, he never recovered and died there on Sept 17, 1905.
Janet's note: He received a pension for his war service. It stated that he never recovered from his treatment in prison.
