Eleazer Carpenter – [Plot B-35; Barely Readable] ADOPTED

Carpenter_Eleazer_SM.jpg

 

Buried 11/01/1864.

 

6) Records of Loudon Park Cemetery, Baltimore, Maryland

 

This E. Carpenter is Eleazer "Eli" Carpenter, born c1816 in Hancock Co. GA. Eleazar Carpenter was a son of John Carpenter who was born c1770-1780 and died in 1839 in Upson Co. GA. Eleazer was captured by Federal troops at Petersburg VA on or about 17 Jun 1864. He and his compatriots were first imprisoned at City Point VA, then transferred to Elmira NY, where he was paroled on 11 Oct 1864. He and other invalid prisoners were to be taken to Point Lookout MD for exchange, but Eleazer was too gravely ill and on 13 Oct 1864 when the train reached Baltimore, MD, he was admitted to the Army's General Hospital. He died there 18 days later, on 31 Oct 1864 and was interred on Confederate Hill on 1 Nov 1864. He left a wife and seven children in GA.

On the 31st of October 1864, Eleazar Carpenter died. He was buried on the 1st of November 1864, in the Confederate lot, grave B-46, in the Loudon Park Cemetery, Baltimore, Maryland.

 

In 1861 in Upson County, Georgia, Hamilton Carpenter,(bro.) acting as agent for Eleazar, paid twenty-five cents poll tax for him. Eleazar was listed as owning thirty-five acres. This is the last record we have of him till he enlisted in the Confederate Army.

 

At Camp Cooper, Macon, Georgia, on the 8th of April 1863, Eleazar Carpenter volunteered for service, and was mustered into Company B, Sixty-Fourth Georgia Regiment, Infantry, of the Confederate Army. His rank was private, and he received his first and possibly only pay of $50.00.

 

The Sixty-Fourth was sent to Camp Cobb at Quincy, Florida. They arrived there by the 20th of April 1863. Their orders were to "arrest deserters, skulkers, punish and drive out plunderers and Yankees, collect cattle for the Confederate Government, and help the farmer when possible". During April, May, June, July and August, many of the men of the Sixty-Fourth deserted. The regiment was still stationed at Camp Cobb for Christmas 1863.

 

On the 20th of February 1864, the Sixty-Fourth, with other troops, were in the battle at Olustee, twelve miles from Jacksonville, Florida, at the Florida Atlantic and Gulf Railroad. 2,000 Confederate troops faced 9,400 Federal Troops. The Confederate soldiers were forced to retreat. J. W. Evans, Commander of the Sixty-Fourth, was severely wounded in the right thigh. Total Confederate casualties that day were 7 officers and 86 men killed, 49 officers and 798 men wounded, and 6 men were missing.

 

The Sixty-Fourth, now commanded by Lieut. Colonel T. W. Brevard, remained in Florida till the 18th of April 1864, when they received orders to proceed to Savannah, Georgia, via Callahan, Florida, Traders Hill, Georgia, and Tebeauville, Georgia. They traveled by train, which was probably slow, with numerous delays enroute. Before they could reach Savannah, they were ordered on to Peters burg, Virginia.

 

The First Georgia Regiment was scheduled to go to Petersburg, and the Sixty-Fourth was to replace them in Savannah. But the First Regiment, who were heavy artillerists, were deemed necessary to the defense of Savannah, ***so the Sixty-Fourth was sent to Petersburg in their place***.

 

The trip from Florida to Savannah, Georgia, and then to Petersburg, Virginia was slow. The railroads were crowded with supplies and troops, all desperately needed somewhere. The Sixty-Fourth had not arrived in Charleston, South Carolina by the 27th of April 1864, but according to one message, "they would be sent on as soon as possible".

 

An order was sent the 15th of May 1864 for the Sixty-Fourth to report to General Hill as soon as they arrived in town. In a letter to General Beauregard, dated 19 May 1864, Major-General Whiting wrote, "We have now but the Sixty-Fourth Georgia Regiment on Swift Creek and the Militia, with Colonel Tate (Sixth Regiment, North Carolina), in town."

 

Special Orders No. 10 was issued on the 11th of June 1864, by Assistant Adjutant-General James H. Pearce, to Headquarters in Petersburg, stating, "the invalid Corps will be stationed at the forks of Baxter and Jerusalem roads. The Sixty-Fourth Georgia Regiment will be stationed from Battery No. 16 to No. 27 inclusive, and Archers Militia from No. 27 extending to the right as far as they will reach". Late in the afternoon, on the 15th of June 1864, 13,700 Federal Troops commanded by General William Smith, attacked Petersburg, Virginia.

 

General Smith received two more Federal Troops on the 16 of June 1864, giving him a total of 48,000 men. General Beauregard's troops were also reinforced, giving him a total of 14,000 Confed erate soldiers. The Sixty-Fourth had probably arrived with this group of men. The Confederates again managed to hold off the Federal Troops.

 

The next day, 17th June 1864, the battle continued with the Confederates coming under heavy artillery bombardment. Eleazer Carpenter, Captain T. J. Pritchell, and many other Confederate soldiers were captured by the Federal troops. These prisoners were first taken to City Point, Virginia, arriving there on the 24th of June 1864. On the 25th of July 1864, they were transferred to Elmira, New York.

 

Before a Confederate could be paroled, an Oath of Allegiance to the United States was required. On the 30th of September 1864, Eleazar Carpenter made his oath, stating he had volunteered in the Confederate Army to avoid conscription, he was 48 years of age, claimed to be a Union man, and had opposed succession. He was paroled the 11th of October 1864, with otherinvalid (sick and wounded) prisoners. They were to be taken to Point Lookout, Maryland, for exchange.

 

Eleazar Carpenter, sick and suffering from chronic diarrhea, never made it to Point Lookout, Maryland. On the 13th of October 1864, when the train reached Baltimore, Maryland, he was admitted to the U. S. A. General Hospital, West's building. There he was treated with the customary remedies: tonics, astringents, and stimulants. Medications that would have only made his condition worse.

 

On the 31st of October 1864, Eleazar Carpenter died. He was buried on the 1st of November 1864, in the Confederate lot, grave B-46, in the Loudon Park Cemetery, Baltimore, Maryland

Col. George Washington Carter – [Plot G-34; Unreadable] ADOPTED

 

George_Washington_Carter

 “(ca. 1828-1901). George Washington Carter, minister and educator, Confederate colonel, legislator, and diplomat, was born in Virginia about 1826. He became a minister in the Methodist Church when he was twenty-one years old. He served congregations in the Richmond, Petersburg, and Fredericksburg, Virginia, districts and in 1858 received an appointment to the University of Mississippi as professor of ethics. In January 1860 the Texas Methodist Conference invited him to become president of Soule University at Chappell Hill, Texas. After participating in the Secession Convention in 1861, Carter resigned his position and returned to Virginia, where the Confederate secretary of war authorized him to recruit a regiment for the army. He returned to Texas, raised three regiments instead of one, and planned to arm his recruits with lances. The regiments-his own Twenty-first Texas Cavalry, Franklin C. Wilkes'sqv Twenty-fourth Texas Cavalry, and Clayton C. Gillespie's Twenty-fifth Texas Cavalry-became known as Carter's Lancers. When the force arrived in Arkansas in the autumn of 1862 the Twenty-fourth and Twenty-fifth Texas withdrew from Carter's command, leaving him with only the Twenty-first Texas; this regiment joined a brigade under Col. William Henry Parsons.qv Throughout the war Carter claimed that he should have had command of Parsons's brigade because his commission as colonel came from the secretary of war and predated that of Parsons. This dispute was not settled until the Twenty-first Texas left Parsons's brigade early in 1865. At times during the war Carter did command portions of the brigade, and when it was under him it was known as Carter's brigade. He led this force with Brig. Gen. John S. Marmaduke into Missouri in 1863. Although both he and Colonel Parsons participated in the Red River campaignqv in 1864, the brigade was placed under Brig. Gen. William Steele.qv After the war Carter moved to Louisiana, where he was a controversial figure in Reconstructionqv politics. He served in the legislature as speaker in 1871-72. He was minister resident to Venezuela from June 30, 1881, to May 16, 1882, and in his later life was a lecturer. Carter was married and divorced three times. He died at the Maryland Line Confederate Soldiers' Home in Pikesville, Maryland, on May 11, 1901, and is buried at Loudon Park Cemetery in Baltimore. BIBLIOGRAPHY: Anne J.

          Death of Dr. G.W. Carter

Lived in Texas Before the Civil War and Subsequently Held a Diplomatic Office

Special To The News

Washington, May 13-Dr. George W. Carter, formerly a prominent member of the Virginia conference, Methodist Episcopal Church, died Saturday at the Confederate Home in Pikesville, Md. Preceding the Civil War Dr. Carter was stationed in Texas and at the outbreak of the war served in the Confederate army from that State.  At the close of the war he removed to Louisiana, where he figured prominently in Republican circles in the reconstruction days.  He was appointed Minister of Venezuela by President Garfield and after his return to this country was readmitted to the Virginia conference from which he retired several years ago, making this city his home.  Dr. Carter was a native of Loudon County.  Interment will be at his old home.

  R.D. Gage of Texas and J.W. Zeverly of the Indian Territory are here.

 

 

Springfield Republican, 13 May 1901, News Article

END OF A PICTURESQUE CAREER

Death of Rev. Dr. George W. Carter-Twice Divorced and Fought Two Duels.

   The death in Washington Saturday of Rev. Dr. George W. Carter removes a picturesque and remarkable character.  Dr. Carter, who for many years was an eloquent Methodist divine, probably had the most varied career of any man in the ministry in this country.  He was 75 years old, had been divorced twice and  married a third time, was a prominent figure in politics during “carpet-bagger” days in Louisiana and Texas, and was a temperance advocate.  Dr. Carter’s first wife was from Loudon county, Va., and divorced him for abandonment.  After that he went to Louisiana and married a widow with three children, who also obtained a legal separation from him on the ground of abandonment.

   About that time the doctor took an active part in the stirring political events in Louisiana.  He became secretary to Pinchback, the senator from that state, and later was appointed to a consulship under the then republican administration.  He became a member of the Virginia Methodist conference, and one of the most brilliant pulpit orators of the country.  His wild career, however, caused his retirement from the ministry for a time.  About a dozen years ago he was readmitted to the conference and resumed pulpit work.  About six years ago he married Miss Virginia Stalhan, a beautiful and highly-connected girl of 20 of Lynchburg, Va.  This marriage resulted in a demand of the doctor for an investigation by the Virginia conference.  It was insisted that, being a divorced man for unscriptural causes, he had no right to contract another union.  The old man insisted upon an investigation, which resulted in a complete victory for him.  He prepared his own defense, in which he gave a highly interesting history of his career.  For some years Dr. Carter had been engaged in literary work at the national capital.  He had fought two duels during his life.

            CAPT. JAMES L. CLARK DEAD

Succeeded To Harry Gilmor’s Command In Civil War

   Capt. James L. Clark, 70 years old, died Sunday at the Confederate Home at Pikesville.

   A son of Major M.M. Clark and Ann M. Johnson, of Frederick county, Maryland, he was born in Savannah, Ga., December 26, 1840, and spent the early years of his life in Washington and Baltimore.  He was a student at the University of Virginia in 1859.

   In 1861 he entered the Confederate service as quartermaster of the First Maryland Infantry.  After serving in the valley campaign under General Jackson he resigned and was assigned to special service by Secretary Judah P. Benjamin.   In the spring of 1863 he was appointed captain and aid on Gen. James E. B. Stuart’s staff participating in the battle of Brandy Station and other engagements.

   In June 1863, he succeeded Major Harry Gilmor, who had been promoted as captain of Company F, Twelfth Virginia Cavalry, and with that company was assigned to special duty, taking part in the Gettysburg campaign.  When Captain Clark returned to Virginia he rejoined the Twelfth and took part in the fights east of the Blue ridge in 1863, and in the Wilderness fights in 1864.

   He resigned from the Twelfth Virginia Cavalry in 1864 and organized Company F, consisting of Marylander’s for Major Gilmor’s battalion, and took part in the raid around Baltimore, in the burning of the Gunpowder bridge and the capture of General Franklin.

   Captain Clark was captured at Moorefield, Va., in July, 1864, and sent to Camp Chase prison, Ohio, but in February, 1865, he was exchanged and took command of Major Gilmor’s battalion.  Major Gilmor having been captured.  He kept the battalion together until May, when hearing that Gen. Joseph E. Johnston had surrendered it was disbanded.

   Captain Clark lived in Baltimore until about 20 years ago, when he went to Colorado.

   Services will be held in the Confederate Home at 2 o’clock today.  Burial will be at Loudon Park.

Lt. Col. J. Lyle Clarke – [Plot B-101; Barely Readable] ADOPTED

 

J_Lyle_Clarke

Colonel J. Lyle Clarke, of Catonsville, was born in Richmond, Va., December 16, 1833, reared in Gloucester county to his fifteenth year, and afterwards was a resident and business man of Baltimore.  As soon as it became certain that the South would be invaded, Captain Clarke left Baltimore May 8, 1861, for Richmond, where his original Company B, Maryland Guard, was attached to the Twenty-first Virginia infantry. In December, 1861, his company was assigned to Stonewall Jackson's command, and it fought under the leadership of that renowned general until disbanded in May, 1862. Pro­motion to the rank of major with assignment as adjutant­general on the staff of General Loring was the well-de­served advancement won at this juncture. General Loring was at that time commanding in the department of Nor­folk, with headquarters at Suffolk. Major Clarke served with Loring until Norfolk was evacuated, and then went with him to the department of West Virginia. A field of activity opened to him here, in command of six com­panies of sharpshooters, the Thirtieth Virginia battalion, with promotion again to the rank of lieutenant-colonel. He was later advanced to the rank of colonel. Colonel Clarke was engaged in the following actions: Fayette Court House, Montgomery's Ferry, Charleston, Union Station, Strasburg, Blaine's, Tenn., and Cumberland Gap. Returning to Virginia he participated in the bat­tle of New Market under Breckinridge; joined Lee at Hanover, and was in the engagements of Totopotomoy and Second Cold Harbor; and was with Early on his raid through Maryland in 1864. By a singular accident, the falling of a limb from a tree, his leg was broken at this date, which terminated his career in the field. Col­onel Clarke stayed in Halifax county entirely disabled until the war closed, and still on his crutches for a year longer awaited slow recovery. He took charge of his father's farm in Gloucester, Va., for two years, then returning to Baltimore engaged in business. In Decem­ber, 1894, he was appointed superintendent of the postal station at Catonsville, a position he held until his death in January, 1898. Colonel Clarke was mentioned in general orders for gallantry at the battle of New Market. At Orange Court House, after the battle of Gettysburg, General Lee asked Colonel Clarke if he had his battalion as well drilled as his old company, remarking immedi­ately after to General Horton that Company B was the best drilled company he ever saw in action. One brother of Colonel Clarke was assistant surgeon in the Mexican war in the regiment commanded by Colonel Tyler.  Another brother was captain of “the flag of truce exchange boat” on the James river.  Two other brothers were in the Confederate service; one a quartermaster in the general department at Gloucester Point, the other lieutenant-colonel of ordinance and after the war professor in Baltimore City college.

DEATH OF COL. J. LYLE CLARKE

In Charge of Catonsville postal Station And A Well-Known Confederate Veteran

 

Col. J. Lyle Clarke, superintendent of the postal station at Catonsville and a well-known Confederate veteran, died at 1:30 A.M. this morning.  He had been sick for three weeks with catarrh of the stomach and general weakness. He was born in Richmond, Va., December 15, 1833.

 

He had been in the postoffice service since the fall of 1893, when he was named by Postmaster Johnson to take charge of the sub-station then established in North Baltimore. When that station was abolished under Mr. Warfield, Colonel Clarke was transferred to Catonsville.

 

Colonel Clarke entered the Confederate service at the beginning of the war as Captain of the Maryland Guard. These comprised one hundred Baltimore militiamen who had belonged to the Maryland Guards, which was formed in this city in 1860. They  were mustered into service at Richmond on May 24, 1861, and five days later were ordered to the south side of the James river at Petersburg. After a brief campaign in that locality the command was ordered to join Colonel Gillan’s Twenty-first Virginia Regiment. After a year’s serviced in Northern Virginia it was disbanded in May 1862, it’s enlistment period having expired.

 

Captain Clarke had been promoted to be major in 1862 and when his command disbanded he was commissioned to serve as assistant adjutant general to Maj.-Gen. W.W. Loring.  He was again promoted to lieutenant-colonel October 5, 1862, and appointed to command the Thirtieth Virginia Battalion of Sharpshooters.  He was disabled near Staunton on Early’s march to Maryland, in 1864.  One of his associates in service was Mr. R. Curzon Hoffman.

 

After the was he returned to Baltimore and engaged in business as a wholesale liquor broker and commission merchant. At one time he was in partnership with William G. Webb as Webb, Clarke & Co.

Robert Brent Crane – [Plot D-32; Readable] (Private Burial) ADOPTED

Crane_Robert_Brent(sm)

 

R. Brent Crane, now a well-known educator, residing at Towson, Md., is a native of St. Mary's county, born March 19, 1842. He was educated at St. Timothy's Hall, Baltimore county, but hardly passed that period of his life when he was urged by the stirring events of the time and his devotion to principle, to enroll himself with the other young Marylanders who were rallying under the battle-flag of the South. Early in the struggle he entered the service, enlisting in the gallant Company A, of the First Maryland cavalry, as a private. In the winter of 1862-63 he served in the brigade of Gen. William E. Jones, and in the spring of 1863 participated in the raid into western Maryland, and was in the attack of the First Maryland upon the Federal station at Greenland Gap, W. Va. Both rank and file of the regiment suffered severely in this hot little battle, and Mr. Crane had the misfortune to be severely wounded, losing an eye. For some time after this unfortunate event he did not serve upon the field, and was assigned to detached service~ but returned to his regiment in May, 1864. After the last charge had been made, and the last gun fired, Mr. Crane returned to St. Mary's county and became engaged as a teacher and professor in the schools. In pursuit of the duties of this profession he was called to Towson, which has since been his home. Professor Crane has a well ­deserved reputation in his profession, and is a promi­nent and influential man in the community.

Crouch_Frederick(sm)

 

Frederick William Nicholls Crouch, A. M., F. R. S., Mus. Doc., for many years a resident of Baltimore, known the world over as the author of "Kathleen Mavourneen," was a man of many careers. He traversed the gamut of life, from prosperity to bitter adversity, from the ease of a court favorite to the toil of a smokebegrimed gunner in the batteries of the Confederate army, in the days of its desperate struggle against fate. He was born in London, July 31, 1808. Son of a famous musician, he played as a boy of nine years in the orchestra of the Royal Cobourg theater. Encountering adversity even in childhood, he went to sea for two years in the merchant service. Subsequently he was admitted to the Royal school of music, and was thence appointed to attend the coronations both of George IV and of William and Adelaide. Leaving the metropolis he taught music in Devon and Cornwall, and wrote" Kathleen Mavourneen" upon the banks of the Tamar. At this time, prospering in his affairs, he embarked upon the management of a mammoth music salon and art gallery, but suffered failure. He then resumed his profession as teacher, author and composer, and upon the death of King William was called to attend the coronation of Queen Victoria. Subsequently he determined to go on a lecturing tour, and after a visit in Ireland and Wales, landed in New York in November, 1849, and after a short connection with an operatic venture in that city removed to Portland, Me., and later to Philadelphia, following the profession of teacher and musical director. About the time of the inauguration of President Buchanan he went to Washington and conducted an academy of music and officiated as choirmaster of St. Matthew's.  Thence he went to Richmond, Va., became connected with St. Paul's church, and was earning an ample income, but as soon as Virginia was invaded he enlisted as a private in the Richmond Grays, with which he served at Norfolk.  Later he was transferred to the First company Richmond Howitzers, and was stationed before Leesburg. From that time until the end of the war he served, despite his advanced age, with all the spirit and endurance of youth, never losing a day from sickness, though several times wounded. The crippled old gunner to the last bitter day was proud of his station, and used to take great satisfaction in telling that he was number one man at Dumber one gun of the First Howitzers, First battalion, First regiment light artillery, First army corps, army of Northern Virginia. After Appomattox, the author of "Kathleen Mavourneen" tramped to Buckingham Court House and hired out as a gardener until he was able to return to Richmond, where he was for a time engaged with Pollard upon the Public Opinion. Removing to Maryland he settled at Baltimore, worked at the bench for seven years in a furniture factory, and when the shop shut down and he and his family were face to face with starvation, took up his pen again and managed to keep the wolf from the door. In 1896 a testimonial was arranged for him by friends in Baltimore, and world-wide attention was attracted to the veteran musician, composer and soldier of the Confederacy.

Born 07/31/1808, England; Died Aug. 18, 1896, Baltimore City, Maryland, USA --- Acclaimed composer of over 2000 ballads and two operas. Born in England in 1808, he emigrated [sic] to America in 1849 where he found employment at Richmond, Virginia's St. Paul's Episcopal Church. At the start of the Civil War, he joined the Confederacy and he was in the Confederate Army throughout the entire war, serving with distinction. It was during this time of war that Crouch composed his most famous and haunting song, "Kathleen Mavourneen" which quickly became a favorite of the Confederates and was sung around the soldiers' campfires almost nightly. The song was featured in the 1994 film "Gettysburg" and it was sung in the Confederate camp the night before Pickett's Charge. It is still heard frequently to this day. Following the war, Crouch went on composing and he also taught music and singing. There has been controversy about the authorship of the song "Oh how I hate to get up in the morning", some saying that Irving Berlin composed it and others equally adamant that Crouch had the honors. Recent research has shown, however, that Crouch was the actual composer, writing the song to cheer up his fellow Confederate soldiers. Frederick Nicholls Crouch was buried with honors on Confederate Hill in Baltimore's Loudon Park Cemetery.

“KATHLEEN” HIS REQUIEM

Prof. Crouch’s Famous Song Was Sung at His Grave After the Burial in Loudon Park

 

The funeral of Prof. Frederick William Nicholls Crouch, who died Tuesday at Portland, Me., took place yesterday afternoon from his home 609 West Lombard street, this city [Baltimore, MD]. The burial was in Loudon Park.

 

Friends and relatives of the composer of “Kathleen Ma_o_rneen” thronged the house while outside the crowd was so large that it was with difficulty that Deputy Marshal Fannan and a number of policemen cleared the way for the funeral procession. Hundreds of others had gone to the cemetery early in the afternoon to be present at the interment. The floral offerings were numerous.

 

The service of the Protestant Episcopal Church was read both at the house and at the grave by Rev. Robert _. Paine, of Mt. Calvary Church.

 

The body, the family and a number of friends were taken the cemetery on the combination carriage of the National Burial Company, the use of which was offered a few days ago to the Confederate Society which had the funeral in charge.  Professor Crouch was a member of the society.

 

The singers and pall-bearers followed in other carriages.  The pall-bearers chosen from the Confederate Society were: Messrs. F.M. Colston, J.M. Keeler, James H. Wheeler, Daniel L. Thomas, Robert M. Blundon and Dr. J. G. Wiltshire.  Messrs. Hugh McWilliams and Daniel A. Boone, of the society, were also present.

   

Under the leadership of Mr. F.X. Hale, of the Cathedral choir, a number of singers rendered at the house the hymn “Just as I Am” and at the cemetery the hymns “Nearer, My God to Thee,” and “Abide With Me.”

 

After the burial “Kathleen Mavo_rneen” was sung.  During it’s rendition many of the ladies around the grave were in tears.

 

The singers were Joseph H. Plunkett, P.A. Kries, D.J. McCloskey and Ferdinand Kaiser, tenors; J.W. Sh_ffer and M. Hanley, first bas_os, and Joseph R. Cain, A.J. May, Jeremiah Lawler and Dr. G.P. Kemp, second ba__os.

 

Among the members of his family present from out of town were Miss Rose Crouch, who is playing with the Nellie McHenry Company at Long Branch, N.J.; Frederick Crouch, a son of the professor, who is employed by the United States Express Company at New York; Walter Crouch, of Washington, another son; Mrs. C. Mawdaley, the professor’s eldest daughter, and her daughter, Mrs. Batton, with seven of Mrs. Batton’s children.
