Company Unknown
Benjamin D. Averill - Sergeant   
Benjamin Averill was my grandmother's grandfather. She knew him well as a youngster and has told me what a wonderful man he was. He was promoted to Sergeant sometime after Petersburg's charge, which he lived through. He was shot once but ive yet to find out during which battle. After the war in the 1890's, he continued to serve Maine as a member of the state legislature. All of which I have confirmed. Still a mystery is the family swearing he fought in gettysburg, which means he would have had to have been in a different unit at that time; possible, but I've found no proof in either direction of his wherabouts during that part of the war. I hope my information helps with your site and hope to find some more answers myself I can update you with. Great site.. keep up the good work. Adam S. Boyington

Company K
Israel P. Benner - Private   
Israel was part of the 1st Regiment Heavy Artillery of Maine Volunteers. This regiment was first organized as the 18th Infantry Regiment. Israel mustered into service June 30, 1863. Israel was wounded June 18th in the charge on the enemy works at Petersburg, Virginia. He died at City Point Hospital (8 miles northeast of Petersburg) June 24/25, 1864. He was 17 years old. (At the time of the 1850 census he was 2 years of age).

Found the following at the City Point National Cemetery Site: http://www.cwc.lsu.edu/projects/dbases/nccitypt.htm

NAME RANK DATE OF DEATH
BENNER, I.P. PVT JUN 24/5 1864 ME 1ST ARTY E DIVISION SEC GRAVE 1157

The Regimental Records for the First Maine Heavy Artillery are online
at http://www.cwoodcock.com/firstmaine/ and found the following:

''Israel P Benner, Company K, First Maine Heavy Artillery. Mustered in June 30, 1863 from Edmunds, Maine, 18 years old and single. Died June 25, 1864 of wounds received June 18, 1864 (Petersburg)''

The above information confirms all previous information acquired. However, the 1850 Census shows Israel was two years of age; the 1860 census shows him as 13; therefore, in 1863 he was 16 years of age. It''s obvious young men didn''t need to prove their age before enlisting. Have visited his grave at City Point.

Information I''ve found shows the hospital was called ''City Point'' however, a monument at the cemetery calls the hospital ''Point of Rocks.''
