James O Champlin - Sergeant   
Sgt. Champlin, my great-great grandfather, was wounded at Shiloh and was missing in action at Corinth. His body was not identified and is presumed to be buried in an 'Unknown' grave at Corinth National Cemetery.

The following is a deposition given by an infantry officer in support of a pension application for Champlin's orphaned children. This oath was given at the Office of the Clerk of the Circuit, on January 15, 1864. The original was penned in longhand and has been transcribed exactly as written.

State of Wisconsin
County of Green Lake

George Graves having duly sworn upon his oath says that he is 2nd Lieutenant of Co. A. 16th Regt. Of Wisconsin Volunteers, and was with said Company at the Battle of Pittsburgh Landing, fought on the 6th & 7th days of April 1862, and the Battle of Corinth fought on the 3rd day of October of the same year. Deponent further says that he was personally acquainted with James O. Champlin one of the sergeants of said Company; that the said James O. volunteered at the City of Berlin at the time of the organization of said Company; they then fought with the said Company at the said Battle of Pittsburgh Landing and also at the Battle of Corinth whereas this deponent verily believes he was killed by the enemy. Deponent further says that the reasons why he believes that the said James O. was killed at the Battle of Corinth as aforesaid are the following.

On the day of the battle said Co. A. was detached from the Regiment and marched out towards the enemy to support skirmishers; that while thus detached they were attacked by a large force of the enemy and driven back; that while said attack was made by the rebels the said James O. was in his place in said Company; that the said Co. was lying down when attacked, the said James O. with them, that the place where they were lying was swept by a terrific crossfire by the rebel troops but a short distance from them; that the Co. was forced to retire and when they did so the said James O. was missing and has not to the knowledge of this deponent, not to the knowledge of any one of the Co. so far as this deponent can ascertain been seen or heard of since that time. That at the time of said attack one of the members of said Co. was taken prisoner and remained with the rebels a prisoner for two or three months; that said soldier stated to this affiant that said James O. was not taken prisoner as then believed. That the killed after the battle were buried by negroes.

Deponent further says that the said James O. was a faithful and brave soldier and a true patriot; that he fought bravely at the Battle of Pittsburgh Landing, was wounded and sent home until he should recover from his wounds; after his recovery returned to his regiment and discharged his duties promptly and efficiently; that he knows as well as he can know such a fact that the said James O. did not desert, and that he has no doubt that he was killed in battle as above stated.

I corresponded with the Wisconsin Veterans Museum regarding the type of rifle issued to the 16th Wisconsin in 1861. I was told that they received the Dresden Rifle Musket. This firearm was manufactured in Liege, Belgium, and sold in Dresden, Germany, hence the name. The rifle was .58 caliber, 53-inches long, and weighed about 9-pounds.

Wilhelm Ludwig Ferdinand Kollhoff - Private   
Wilhelm ' William' Ferdinand Ludwig Kollhoff;
Birth: Dec. 21, 1840
Gramzow, Uckermärk, Brandenburg, Prussia (Germany)

Death: Nov. 30, 1918
Sioux City,Woodbury County,Iowa, USA.

Written April 2017. This is my 2x great grandfather. He was born Wilhelm Ferdinand Ludwig Kollhoff , but after the Civil War used the name 'William'.
His father was *Friedrich Wilhelm Ferdinand Kollhoff (born April 1811 in Bertikow, Ukermark, Brandenburg, Prussia) .
His mother was *Fredericke ( SUHR) Kollhoff. Friedrich & Fredericke were married on Feb 30, 1839 in Bertikow Prussia.
*Friedrich is pronounced 'Free-Drick' and his wife's name was pronounced
'Fred-er-eek-Ahh' in the German language.

Wilhelm was born in the village of Gramzow, Brandenburg, Prussia (Current day; Germany).
He immigrated to America in July of 1850 at the age of 10 years old. He traveled with both parents and 4 of his siblings on the ship 'Universe' from the port of Beenz, Brandenburg,Prussia. They arrived in NYC port, on July 23, 1850. His youngest sister Julia was born in Butler County, Illinois USA.
Wilhelm served in the Army as a Private in company A,16th Wisconsin Infantry Regiment in the Civil War from July 12,1863- Jan 1865. He was in the Carolinas Campaign and the Battle of Bentonville. Both particularly brutal fights. In the Civil War he was at Battle of Shiloh
Battle of Corinth
Vicksburg Campaign
Battle of Kennesaw Mountain
Battle of Atlanta
Atlanta Campaign
March to the Sea.

After the war, he went by his more Americanized name of 'William'. He bought and farmed land in Butler Township in Illinois. It is there that he meet and married his only wife Caltha (Shannon) ~born in Liberty Township, Warren County, Indiana. They married February 4,1869 in Ford Co. Illinois. Caltha's parents & Wilhelms parents lived next door to each other. Caltha later in life is seen using the more Americanized name of ' Catherine'. Caltha's younger sister Johanna Shannon married Wilhelm's oldest brother Ernst Kollhoff. Later, Caltha & Wilhelm, with Ernst and Johanna are seen in the Census sharing a house together as newlywed couples. Wilhelm & Caltha they had 5 children together. Caltha was a trained Midwife, and worked on and off through out the years doing so. In 1880 they moved and farmed in Centerville, Nebraska(USA).This is aprox.10 miles Southwest of Lincoln, Nebraska. I see from the NE State Census, that his brother Earnst is already living on a farm in Centerville, when they arrive. In the 1880's there was a large German population in Centerville. Even an all speaking German Lutheran Church and community. They arrived as homesteaders. After 5 years of unsuccessful farming due to a terrible drought, Wilhelm and Earnst moved their families to Sioux City, Iowa area to farm until his advanced age. In his later years, he spent as an 'engine tech' for the Union Pacific Railroad, and retired on a pension. He son Charles was a Conductor for the railroad as well.

Shortly after Wilhelm death, Caltha is living in Los Angeles,Los Angeles, California with their son William (Jr) . Wilhelm is buried in Graceland Cemetery in Sioux city, Iowa- but Caltha is buried in Hollywood,California.

William Scranton - Private   
My gg grandfather, William Scranton,joined the 16th Inf in Feb. 1864. At the time, he lived in Springwater with his wife Jane [Coats] and 4 small children. I have searched for years for his burial site. All we have ever heard is he was buried in the South. His NARA medical card shows he died July 8, 1865 of typhoid in Brown USA Hospital in Louisville. His widows pension file shows date of death as July 24. The Wisconsin Red and Blue books have him mustered out July 11, with no discharge furnished. ?? Considering he died at the end of the war in a hospital, there must be a record of what they did with him. Any help appreciated. Thanks, Ken

We gained the rebel work but with the loss of many brave men....Give my respects to father,mother,and the rest. Tell them to look at Fredericks death as lightly as possible. He died for his country and he now rests in peace.' He was 17 when he died.

Thomas Handley Tupper: DOB: 27 Sep 1831; POB: Cornwallis, Kings County, Nova Scotia, Canada; Passed On: 16 Nov 1862; Place Died: Grand Junction, Mississippi; Thomas' parents: father: James Henry Tupper (1808-1892); mother: Mary Ann Gates (1809-1899).

Thomas Handley Tupper married Elizabeth Augusta White on 24 May 1853 in Jefferson County, Wisconsin, USA.

Spouse: Elizabeth Augusta White: DOB: 13 Jan 1838; POB: Augusta, Kennebec County, Maine, USA; Passed On: 26 Jun 1916; Place Died: Stevens Point, Portage County, Wisconsin, USA.

Children: Harriet Evelyn Tupper: DOB: 17 Mar 1856; POB: Polk County, Wisconsin, USA; Passed On: 21 Jan 1936; Place Died: Stevens Point, Portage County, Wisconsin, USA.

James Henry Tupper: DOB: 13 Aug 1858; POB: Belmont, Portage County, Wisconsin, USA; Passed On: 8 Feb 1910; Place Died: Darrington, Snohomish County, Washington, USA.

Alice Almeda Tupper: DOB: 10 Feb 1861; POB: Wisconsin, USA; Passed On: 30 Oct 1944; Place Died: Nisqually, Thurston County, Washington, USA.


This letter was written by 29 year-old Thomas H. Tupper (1832-1862) who enlisted as a corporal in Co. H, 16th Wisconsin Infantry. Due to the loss of men, companies H and I were consolidated into Company I in early November 1862.

Tupper wrote the letter on 17 March 1862 to his wife from Cairo while enroute to Pittsburg Landing on the Tennessee River where Gen. Grant hoped to concentrate his forces for a move on the rebel stronghold at Corinth. The 16th Wisconsin was as yet, without drill and untested, when they were instantly thrown into the melee of battle when Beauregard’s army lunched his surprise attack on the Union encampment in the early dawn of April 6th—three weeks after this letter was penned.

To say that the 16th Wisconsin was in the thick of the fight at Shiloh may be an understatement. Miraculously, the entire six-man color guard were all killed on 6 April 1862, the regiment fighting from 5 o’clock in the morning until 3 o’clock in the afternoon, without rations no less. Tupper survived this ordeal by fire only to die of disease at Grand Junction, Mississippi, on 16 November 1862, leaving behind a wife, Elizabeth, and two children, Harriet and James, ages 6 and 3.

Cairo [Illinois]
March 17, 1862

Dear wife,

I now take an hasty opportunity of address a few lines to you to let you know how I am getting along so far. I am getting better and if nothing happens to prevent, will be well in a few days. We are now in Cairo but will not stay long. We are all on board of the boat yet. We have been aboard of cars or boat ever since we left Madison. We do not know where we are going.

The boat has now started out again and we are going up the [Ohio] river but perhaps not far. I have not time to write much now. I want you to write as often as you can and let me know how you get along and how much money you have received. Tell me in every letter until I write back that I heard from your money.

I have no more time to write, I have to send it ashore to the post office.

From — Thom. H. Tupper
