8/9/2004 LAURIE I AM LOOKING FOR SPOONER RELATIVES
7/23/2004 George Hunter I don’t know how much info you have, but I have the following on your relative as recorded in the regimental history of the 27th: James W Spear enlisted at the advanced age of 38 on January 14, 1864 – residence listed as Amherst, Mass. While it would have appeared from the date and place of death (July 6, 1864, Petersburg, VA) that he succumbed to wound(s) acquired in that battle, this was not the case. According to the records, he was wounded in the left thigh during the Battle of Drury’s Bluff on May 16th 1864. At some point thereafter, his leg had to be amputated and this is listed as the cause of death. At the Battle of Drury’s (or Drewry’s) Bluff, the Union line was outflanked with many captured and sent to Andersonville Prison. This was the case with my ancestor, Hugh Dolan (Company E) who died in Andersonville. Hope this helps.
7/15/2004 Brian Spear If anyone has any pictures or information regarding my ggg grandfather James W. Spear of D. co. I would like to hear from you. Thanks.

2/22/2004 R. Brown I have been researching my g-grandfa Pliny Wood of the 27th Infanty, Co. F. Have found his entire record from National Archives.

Any info much appreciated.

11/11/2003 Julian Minard My GGrandfather Justus Lyman served in CO A from Sept 11, 1861 through June 26 1865, first as a SGT and mustered out at New Berne as a 2ndLT (that info comes from a Ancestry.com site and I cant corroborate it or raise the poster). He (Lt Lyman) was apparently captured in the Bermuda Hundred and sent to Libby Prison, but I only know that from my grandmother. He is not listed on your site under any of the companies. I would like to have him there, along with all the other Lymans, his cousins and some who were not. What kind of records do you need? Not sure that I have any records other than a photo of him and his wife just before he went to war. Any chance you made a mistake? Julian Minard

3/21/1999 Marti Spalding The following text is an extract from "The History of Amherst," by Carpenter and Morehouse, 1896. Twenty-Seventh Regiment Sept. 3, 1861, Horace C. Lee, city clerk of Springfield, a man of experience in affairs connected with the state militia, received written authority from Gov. Andrew to recruit a regiment in the four western counties of the state. Sept. 10, recruiting offices were opened in Northampton, Amherst, Greenfield, Athol, Ludlow, Chicopee, Springfield, Westfield, North Adams and Pittsfield. The companies raised at Northampton and Westfield had their ranks filled by the 15th. Sept. 17, the companies from Amherst, Adams, Cbiconee, and Ludlow were ordered into camp about one mile east of the armory at Springfield. The Amherst and Pittsfield companies arrived at Springfield Sept. 19, and owing to a lack of camp equipage made use of the armory of the City Guards for the first night. Tents arrived the following day, and Sept 20, the Amherst, Westfield and Pittsfield companies took up their quarters at "Camp Reed". Sept. 27, the men were mustered into the United States service, to serve for the term of three years. Sept 29, Rev. C. L. Woodworth of Amherst conducted divine services at the camp, assisted by a choir organized by J. L. Skinner of Amherst. Rifles and Uniforms were issued to the troops Oct.10. To the Amherst Company was assigned the company letter D. The Line officers were: Captain, Timothy W. Sloan of Amherst; 1st lieutenant, Ami R. Dennison of Amherst; 2nd lieutenant, John S. Aitcheson of Chicopee. The Regiment broke camp Nov. 2, and went by Boston & Albany railroad to Hudson, N.Y., thence by boat to Jersey City and from the latter place by rail to Annapolis, Md. Here the regiment was attached to the 1st brigade, Gen. John G. Foster commanding, of the troops assembled for the Burnside expedition. The regiment sailed from Annapolis, Jan 11, and took part in the capture of Roanoke Island. Altho Amherst troops were engaged in the battle they suffered no casualties. At the battle of New Berne, March 14, the 27th regiment suffered severely, having seven men killed and 78 wounded. Ten men were wounded in company D, including six from Amherst. It was in this battle that J. E. Cushman lost his arm. Rev. C.L. Woodworth joined the regiment as chaplain, May 1. Dec. 14, the regiment assisted in the capture of Kinston, and a little later took part in the battle of Goldsboro. In the latter part of March and the first part of April, 1863, the regiment was besieged for 18 days at Washington, N.C., by an overwhelming rebel force, but held the place until the siege was abandoned. April 28, companies D and E assaulted and carried an intrenchment at Dover X Roads. The Amherst Company was first in the works. During the charge Sergeant Edmond Boltwood was severely wounded in the leg. May 22, the regiment aided in the capture of the rebel fortifications at Gum Swamp, N.C. Two men, one of them Wheaton Lovett of company D, captured a lieutenant and 26 men. The remainder of the year the regiment did provost duty at New Berne, Norfolk and Portsmouth.

2/9/1998 JAN SCOTT ALDRICH Excellent! Your home page is definitely of interest to me and two Aldrich soldiers are listed: Hiram W. Aldrich Co.'I' on the Roll of Honor and Bennett Aldrich of Co'F'. One source stated that a Silas Aldrich also died at Andersonville,Ga. Co.'unknown'. I have not been able to identify from the family books as to this soldier's family. Whether this was misinformation or a check of the known soldiers interred at Andersonville,Ga. would verify this as being correct. At any rate, I enjoyed your summary of the 27th. Thank you. JSA

10/14/1997 John B. McGowan I am host of the Hyde Co., NC GenWeb Pages and I'm currently working on setting up a Civil War Page. In doing so, I am interested in the regimental histories of those Federal units stationed in the area. Hyde County was "behind the lines" but were unoccupiedm although there were several Confederate units in the area shipping the produce of the farms here to the army in Virginia. There were several Union army expeditions into the area. John

9/1/1997 1SG Dennis Walker, U.S. Army (Ret) Thank you for the information that your site has provided.
8/21/1997 Stef Adams Thank you so much for taking the time to put this information on the Web. Thanks to your work, I was able to get the pension records for my gg-grandfather, Thomas Clifford, of Company G. He went by his middle name, Charles, and I thought his middle name was Thomas, but took a chance based on your information and the fact that he was the only Clifford from the right area and family tradition said he served in the war. The pension records verified a lot of information for me and gave me some new stuff to work with. THANKS!

8/9/1997 Skip Rivard Have been researching my great-grandfather for several years. He was born and was buried as Joseph C. LeBel. I knew he volunteered in MA. I was finally able to locate him on this site in Co. D as Joseph C. Bell. I asked my mother if her grandfather was ever referred to as "Bell" and she nonchalantly replied, "I think his name was changed during the Civil war." Thanks for your help! (You too, Mom) Very informative site.
