The location of death is Weir City. MD is Dr. Headley. However, the Cherokee Co Death records show HC as having died of Bright's Disease (applied to a number of kidney disorders resulting in Kidney failure). Those records do not list a parent either. He is listed in the official Crawford County summary as "Halfield" as the T is not crossed. He is buried in Hosey Hill Cemetery, Wier Ks WWW.Findagrave.com/cgi-bin?page=gs His Weir Obit says he was a Mason.

Total 240.   -----   Source: Mansfield Daily Shield, November 24, 1895.   Title: The 32nd OVI: Colonel Thomas H. Ford Its First Commander     Last Sunday the Shield gave a very concise account of the veterans from Richland County and what they did in the three months service. It is the purpose today to give a partial account of what was done in the three years' service.   The First regiment organized was the Thirty-second. When it was organized, Thomas H. Ford was made colonel; E.H. Swinney, lieutenant colonel; S.M. Hewett, major; R.F. Jackson, adjutant; and R.H. Bentley, quartermaster. September 3 the Thirty-second received orders to repair to Camp Dennison. Though not quite full the colonel left recruiting officers behind to fill the quota as fast as possible. Early Tuesday morning the regiment left Camp Buckingham, near this city, and marched to the depot where 16 passenger cars awaited them into which they went and were soon leaving home. This was the first regiment that left Richland county for the three years' service. War was a reality now. They were leaving home, many of them forever, others to come back only in the body, while the spirit had gone to its maker from some lonely glen or dale; others, maimed for life, while others, who are yet living, came back in the full vigor of manhood to recount in story and song their life in the camp, on the march and in the field.   Arriving at Camp Dennison the regiment was completed, armed and equipped for service and spent some time drilling and preparing for active duty. September 15, 1861, the regiment left Camp Dennison for West Virginia. As was the case with most, if not all of the first regiments from Ohio, they were poorly equipped and armed with the almost useless old smooth bore muskets of bygone days. The regiment was moved by railroad and arrived at Grafton, Sept. 18, and marched the next day for Beverly, West Virginia, where it arrived the 22nd. At this point Col. Ford reported for orders to Brigadier General Reynolds, then commanding the district of Cheat Mountain, with headquarters at Huttonsville, and was assigned to the command then stationed on Cheat Mountain summit with Col. Nathan Kimball of the Fourteenth Indiana Volunteers, commanding the post.   The Thirty-second had been hurried to the field without discipline of any kind; in fact it was hardly organized. Here upon the rugged heights of Cheat Mountain, amid the wild scenery of the Alleghanies, the regiment received its first lesson in the art of war. October 3, 1861, the Thirty-second, under orders, made a forward movement and led the advance of the army against Grenbrier, Virginia, through the mountains and pines of that region by midnight. The regiment remained at Greenbrier during the fall of 1861 engaged in watching the movements of the enemy, who were commanded by that afterwards renowned rebel, General Robert E. Lee.   December 13th part of the Thirty-second, under command of Captain Hamilton, accompanied General Milroy in his advance on Camp Alleghany. In his report General Milroy complimented the regiment very highly on its charge into the camp of the enemy. The loss of the regiment in the engagement was four killed and 14 wounded, some severely. On the return from this expedition it was ordered to Beverly, where it remained the rest of that severe winter. The time was profitably spent in still further disciplining and organizing the regiment, which made necessary some changes in the roster. The following named officers retired and there places were filled from the ranks; Capt. J.A. Lacy, company A; W.M. Stanley, company K, and J. Dyer, of company I; Chaplain Nickerson, first lieutenants, C.C. Brandt, J.W. McLaughlin, A.J. Spaulding and C.C. Nichols; second lieutenants, John Vanmeter, H.H. Fickel, B.F. Guck, R.F. Jackson, (adjutant) George F. Jack, W.H.H. Case and D. Stambaugh; surgeon John N. Mowery also retired and was succeeded by Dr. J.G. Buchanan of Wellsville, Ohio.   Still retained in Gen. Milroy's command, the regiment took the advance of the expedition under that officer which resulted in the capture of Camp Alleghany, Huntersville, Monterey and McDowell. About May 1, a further advance was made to near Buffalo Gap, seven miles from Staunton, Virginia. The enemy was met at this point and after some severe fighting, the national forces fell back to the main army and camped at McDowell in the Bull Pasture Valley where Generals Schenck and Milroy had united their forces numbering about 7,000 men. The regiment then went through a number of fiercely contested battles until Sept. 1, 1862, when it participated in a bloody fight at Harper's Ferry and after losing 10 men was surrounded by a superior force and captured. The regiment was paroled and sent to Annapolis, Maryland, whence it was transferred to Chicago, Illinois.   In the defense of Harper's Ferry the regiment lost some gallant officers and brave men. Captain S.R. Breese, Company H, who succeeded Captain Baer, was killed by a musket ball. Captain W.W. Worden lost a leg. Lieut A.G. Hostetter was severely wounded in the foot and Lieut. E.B. Adams of Company F lost a hand. Col.d Ford was placed under arrest and sent to Washington for trial by jury commission on the charge of having neglected his duty in the defense of Maryland Heights. This trial resulted in his dismissal from the service November 3, 1862, by order of the War Department. The evidence afterward adduced proved almost conclusively the correctness of Colonel Ford's position and that he was not, as he asserted, in any case to blame for the day's disaster. That he was made a "scapegoat" to shield the blunders of a superior officer was pretty well established and he was afterward reinstated by President Lincoln, but he declined to serve.   At Chicago the regiment became almost completely demoralized. It had not been paid for eight months, and many of the men took French leave and went home to look after their families. Capt. B.F. Potts was sent to Columbus to ask Gov. Todd to procure an order from the War Department, transferring the Thirty-second to Camp Taylor near Cleveland. This application was successful, and the Thirty-second, or all that was left of it, 35 men, arrived at Camp Taylor on December 1, 1862.   In December, Capt. B.F. Potts was appointed by Gov. Todd, lieutenant colonel of the regiment and that energetic officer went immediately to work reconstructing the regiment. Within 10 days order prevailed and 800 men had reported for duty. This happy result was not attained however without decisive action in the case of several officers, who were charged with exciting dissatisfaction and revolt among the men. Secretary Stanton of the War Department ordered their instant dismissal, which ordered was consummated on Dec. 23, 1862. The men were paid in full and Jan. 12, 1863, were declared to be exchanged or "fell from their parole." Jan. 18 orders were received to proceed to Memphis, Tennessee. In reorganizing the regiment, Lieut. Col. Potts was made colonel, quartermaster R.H. Bentley, lieutenant colonel; Capt. A.M. Crumbacker, major; Assistant Surgeon Brundige, surgeon; and George Sinclair, captain. The regiment left Camp Taylor on Jan. 20, reached Memphis on Jan. 25, 1863, and was assigned to Logan's division, Seventeenth Army Corps. At the battle of Champion Hills the Thirty-second made a bayonet charge and captured the First Mississippi rebel battery - men guns, and horses - with a loss of 24 men. For this gallant achievement the battery was turned over to the regiment and was manned by Company F during the entire siege of Vicksburg. The total loss of the regiment during the entire campaign and siege of Vicksburg was 225, rank and file. It participated in the battles of Port Gibson, Raymond, Jackson, Champion Hills; was in the extreme front of Logan's division when Vicksburg surrendered and was assigned to post duty under Logan.   In August, 1862, the regiment accompanied Stevenson's expedition to Monroe, Iowa, and McPherson's expedition to Brownville, Mississippi, in October of the same year. It was also with Sherman in February, 1864, at Meridian and lost 22 men at Baker's Creek, Mississippi, Feb. 5, 1864, in which last engagement Capt. W.A. McAllister was severely wounded while gallantly leading the advance.   Col. Potts had been assigned to the command of the Second Brigade, Third Division, Seventeenth Army Corps, in the autumn of 1863, and was thereafter but seldom in command of the regiment. In December and January, 1863-64, more than three-fourths of the regiment re-enlisted as veterans and March 4, 1864, was furloughed home. The regiment rejoined the army at Cairo, Illinois, April 21, with its rank largely augmented by recruits. The only change made while at home was the addition of of Dr. T.P. Bond of Champaign County, as assistant surgeon. The regiment joined General Sherman at Ackworth, Georgia, June 10, 1864, and Adjutant General A.G. Phillips of Mansfield was killed and Captains Huber and Potts were severely wounded on September 22, in one of the battles before Atlanta. After the fall of Atlanta, the Thirty-second moved with the army in pursuit of Hood, after which it rejoined General Sherman and accompanied him on his march to the sea. The regiment was present at the surrender of Johnston's army on May 1, 1865, and was mustered out of service July 20. It proceeded to Columbus, where the men received their final discharge on July 26, 1865.   The Thirty-second entered the field Sept. 15, 1861, 150 strong, and during the war received more than 1600 recruits. Only 565 remained at its muster out. It is believed that the regiment lost and recruited more men than any other from Ohio. ---------------------------------------- Name: Henry C.
