Warren G. Hazeltine (Haseltine) - Private   
Warren Hazeltine (Haseltine) was killed at the battle of Weldon Railroad in Aug. 1864. A very old note in his own haversack says he was discovered dead on the battle field by a George Wentroth of Warren's own hometown of Haverhill, MA.'He was hit by a 40 rounder,' according to the note. Wentroth was with a group sent out to bury the dead. When he found Warren, he turned him over and recognized him. Warren had been lying on the battlefield long enough that his body was deteriorating, but rather than bury him on site, Wentroth fashioned a huge box and sent the body home to Warren's mother in Haverhill 'and he was buried in the northwest churchyard.' That's all we know, though we have tried to learn more. We feel Warren may not be listed as deceased since Wentroth did something out of the ordinary rules by sending the body home.
We very much wish to discover more but have been unsuccessful in that quest. Robert Moore---randrmoore@adelphia.net
