Civil War photo of Henry Andrew Matthias - Company G 54th Pennsylvania Volunteers. This picture was taken while at Camp Curtin in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania ca. December 1861. Henry Matthias was born about February 1828 in Germany. He lived in Northampton Township, Somerset County, and Married Elizabeth Anna Cook, the daughter of Adam Cook, and Elizabeth Shoemaker, on January 23, 1859. He died on January 21, 1885 and is buried at Temple Cemetery, Larimer Township, Somerset County, Pennsylvania 32k Feb 2002 Brian Mathias
Francis May is my GGG Grandfather. He was born on 5 June 1830 and died on 24 Apr 1892. He appears to have lived his entire life in Upper Turkeyfoot Township, Somerset County, PA. He initially enlisted on 12 Nov 1861 with Company H of the 85th Regiment of Pennsylvania Volunteers (unsure of enlisted length and service record for this enlistment). Enlisted for a second time with Company G of the 148th Regiment of Pennsylvania Volunteers on 1 Sep 1863 for a period of three years. Lost right arm below elbow due to gunshot wound received in battle (amputated in the field on the day of battle). Pension file records mention battle occurred on 31 March 1865 near Hatchers Run, VA ("Battle of South Side RR, VA" or "Battle of Adams Run, VA"; apparently prior to engagement at White Oak Road), which was part of the Appomattox Campaign, just days prior to Lee's surrender on 9 Apr 1865 at Appomattox Courthouse. At the time, he was serving as a Private with Company G of the 148th Regiment of Pennsylvania Volunteers. He may have transferred to Company B, 53d Regiment of the Pennsylvania Volunteers on 1 Jun 1865 (no confirmation of this note). He was honorably discharged on 28 Jun 1865 due to the wound. If you look closely at the photo, you can see that the right arm appears "fake" -- because it is! I found this photo in July 2002 while searching through my grandmother's old boxes. It is a tin-type photo, and the image was reversed (the number on his hat was backwards, so that gave it away). 26b July 2002 Scott & Roxanne Boyd

William F. MORRISON and Virginia Lucinda LICHTENBERGER Nebraska, circa 1870. Notes: This photo hung in the home of Josiah Morrison and Gertrude Morrison of Callaway, Nebraska. I believe it is Josiah's parents: William F. MORRISON and Virginia Lucinda LICHTENBERGER, formerly of Somerset Twp., Somerset county, Pennsylvania, who migrated to Bradshaw, York, Nebraska around 1860. The photo was probably taken around 1870. I would like to find someone who has the original photo and verify the identification of it. 33k Apr 1999 Lana Archibald
