Stewart Donohue - Private   
Enlisted at age 55. It has never been determined whether Stewart was deserter or not. The family contends that he was not a deserter but was home on furlough. When he arrived home he was warned by neighbors that the Home Guards, who were made up of 'ne'er-do-well's' of the community, were looking for him as a deserter. Stewart placed his carbine in a tree stump near his house and went unarmed looking for the Home Guards. When he came upon them, he volunteered to go with them to Cottageville where the matter of his desertion would be further discussed. On the way he was shot in the back by Job Snyders either by accident or murder. I believe it was the latter.
