Frederick H Henry

Name

Bates (1) has Frederic H Hentz. Since (3) clearly has Frederick H Henry promoted to first sergeant of company G, and the only other first sergeants Bates lists in company G are J A Langerbartel and William Spangler, I am assuming that Bates' 'Hentz' is a mistake for 'Henry'.

Before the war

He was born in October 1840 (10, 15; 8 (21 in 1861), 12 [73 in 1914], 14 [38 in 1880], 15 [59 in 1900], 16 [69 in 1910]). He was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (8, 14, 15, 16).

When he enlisted, he was a carp[enter] (8).

Description

When he enlisted, he was 5 feet 11-1/2 inches tall, and had a light complexion, grey eyes, and light hair (8).

During the war

He also served in company B of the 20th Pennsylvania Infantry and in company B of the 4th Pennsylvania Infantry (9, 13).

He enlisted and was mustered into service on 9 September 1861 (1, 6, 8, 13). He was enlisted for three years, at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, by Captain McAuther (8). He was sergeant in company G (1, 19).

On 19 March 1863, he returned to duty from Brigade headquarters (4).

He was wounded on 3 May 1863 at Chancellorsville, Virginia (1, 5, 17 [killed], 18 [killed]).

He was promoted to first sergeant on 26 December 1863 (3, 6).

He was discharged at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on 26 or 27 August 1864 on surgeon's certificate of disability (1 [26 Aug], 6 [27 Aug], 7 [27 Aug], 8 [27 Aug], 11, 13 [27 Aug]). He was then first sergeant of company G (1, 19).

After the war

He married Kate [unknown family name] (12).

On 10 October 1864, he applied successfully for a pension (9, 13).

In 1880, he was living at 1858 Eleventh Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (14). He was living with his wife Kate E Henry, daughters Annie and Tillie, father-in-law David Griffenberg and his family, and a servant (14). He was a carpenter and builder (14).

He attended the 1884 meeting of the 91st's Survivors' Association (2).

In 1900, he was living at 2534 [?] 31st Street, ward 28, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (15). He was living with his daughter Tillie and two boarders (15). He was widowed (15). He was a builder (15).

In 1910, he was living at 3738 Frankford Avenue, ward 45, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (16). He was living with his daughter Matilda and her family (16). He was a real estate salesman (16).

He again applied for a pension in October 1910 (13).

He died on 17 April 1914, at Erie, Pennsylvania (10 [18 April], 12 [17 April], 13 [18 Apr, Philadelphia PA]). The funeral was held on Tuesday, at Horace T Beers funeral parlor (12). Post 2 of the GAR was invited to attend (among others) (12). He was buried in West Laurel Hill Cemetery, Bala Cynwyd, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania (10, 12).

[Although the order is dated 26 Dec 63, it is between orders dated 16 Feb 64 and 22 Feb 64, and the order number fits in the 1864 sequence, but not in the 1863 sequence. It was therefore probably issued in February 1864.]
