Henry Wesley Bucey - Private   
Although Henry Wesley Bucey was not a blood relative, he was the husband of my g-g-g aunt, Margaret Roe Bucey.

Henry first enlised in the 15th OVI, Company B for three months.

Then, re-enlised into the 1st West Virgina Infantry, Company C, October 1861. Henry was mustered out July 17, 1865.

Taken from the book, ''''''''History of Jefferson County'''''''' (Ohio):

''Although he was almost constantly in danger and took part in such important battles as Bull Run, Winchester and Cedar Creek, and was so brave in his actions that he was promoted to be sergeant of his company.''

I could not find any other reference to his being promoted to a sergeant. He is listed as ''Private'' in other records.Nor could I locate any information as his units being in any of the battles listed above. Only in the battle of Philippi.(online)
