Obituary of Martin Ashcraft [1840OH—1932IN]

A Civil War Veteran and Prisoner of War Classification: Obituary


THE BLOOMFIELD NEWS, Bloomfield, Greene County, Indiana, Thursday, July 21, 1932,Volume LVI, Number 38, Page 1, Column 1, "PIONEER AND WAR VETERAN ANSWERS TAPS" Martin Ashcraft, Aged Ninety-One Years, Passes At Home of Daughter in Bloomfield.[Transcribed July 16, 2003 from the original newspaper on file in the Office of The Recorder of Greene County, Court House, Bloomfield, Indiana.]

Martin ASHCRAFT, aged ninety-one years, one of Jackson Townships pioneer citizens, died Friday, July 15, at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Emery SARGENT, in South Bloomfield, following a short illness.

Funeral services were held at the home of his son, E. Kirby ASHCRAFT on South Franklin Street, at 8:30 o’clock Sunday morning, and the body was taken to Owensburg and laid to rest in the HATFIELD Cemetery.

Following is the obituary of Mr. ASHCRAFT as furnished by the family:

Martin ASHCRAFT was the son of Elijah and Elizabeth ASHCRAFT, one of the sturdy and highly respected pioneer families of eastern Greene County. He was the ninth child of a family of eleven, being born in Muskingum County, Ohio, December 5, 1840. He came with the family to Greene County in October 1847 and settled on their homestead east of Koleen. He remained there on the farm until the Civil War and then joined the ranks of COMPANY C, REGIMENT 43 of INDIANA VOLUNTEERS and served the country for three years and ten months While on the Red River Expedition in Arkansas he was captured and became a prisoner of war at Tyler, Texas. During his incarceration, which lasted ten months, he suffered many hardships but was humanely treated by General Kirby SMITH, commander of the prison. After the war we went to Owensburg, where he was in the mercantile business with Captain Elijah EDINGTON.

In 1867 he married Genira HATFIELD, the daughter and youngest child of Emanuel HATFIELD, another well known pioneer of Greene County. To this family eight children were born, five of which grew to manhood and womanhood three having gone to the beyond in early childhood. His wife preceded him in death July 4, 1923, and since that time he has made his home in Bloomfield.

In the passing of “Uncle Mart,” as he was familiarly known, the last leaf on the tree left the bough of two large pioneer families. Of the ASHCRAFT family of eleven children with all the in-laws and the HATFIELD family of fourteen with all the in-laws, he was the last member.

Mr. ASHCRAFT was an unusual and remarkable man in many ways. He was not schooled in terms of college and diplomas, yet he was educated and was a marvel to those who knew him for his power of memory and his shrewd observation of things both past and present. He had strong convictions relating to the affairs of government, social relations and religion. He was a strong advocate of our constitution, laws, and our democratic form of government. Being of a philosophical turn of mind he had worked out a philosophy of life and was happy with it. His cardinal principals were honesty, truthfulness, justice and friendship. It is a great testimony to a father when children say that they never knew him to do or intimate an unfair dealing with a neighbor. Out ward rough spots, truly, might be found but Mr. ASHCRAFT was fine enough in his feelings. He loved children, men and flowers.

Mr. ASHCRAFT would have been ninety-two on his next birthday, December 5. He had lived a long life, but with a logical calmness met the end and was happy and resigned. Five children survive him, Mrs. Ora SARGENT and E. Kirby ASHCRAFT, both of Bloomfield; Mrs. Anna CORBIN, Jasonville; Mrs. Clyde BRINEGAR, Oolitic, and Forney F. ASHCRAFT, Santa Monica, California. There are also eleven grandchildren and three great-grandchildren and a host of friends who will miss him.

Obituary of Denton Manford Long [1844IN—1929IN], A Civil War Veteran


THE BLOOMFIELD NEWS, Bloomfield, Greene County, Indiana, Thursday October 24 1929,Volume LIII, Number 51, Page 9, Column 3

Manford LONG, son of Israel and Millie (FLYNN) LONG, was born September 29, 1844 in Center Township, Greene County, Indiana, and died at Cincinnati, Indiana, October 15, 1929, at the age of eighty-five years and sixteen days. He was of a family of twelve children. All have preceded him in death, except one brother, W. A. LONG, of Harrisonville, Missouri.

The departed spent almost his entire life in eastern Greene County. When the dark war clouds of 1861 threatened to destroy the Union, Manford, then a mere youth, marched away with many other brave boys to defend our noble flag He and three of his brothers were in COMPANY H, 31ST REGIMENT INDIANA VOLUNTEERS. He united with the M. E. church at Hobbieville in early life and lived a devoted Christian until the end.

On September 15, 1863, he united in marriage with Carline MEREDITH, and after he was discharged from the army, they went to housekeeping on what is known as the S. W. LODER farm.

To this union there were born twelve children, but one by one the little blossoms were plucked away to bloom in heaven, until there was only one son, Elmer, left.

On December 10, 1889, his wife Carline, died leaving him the care of the little son, Elmer. On July 3, 1890, he was again united in marriage to Sarah SHARR. She was all that anyone could wish to care for Uncle Mant in his declining years. To this union was born one daughter, Edna, who grew to be a beautiful child and was a great comfort to father and mother. At the age of thirteen God saw best and called Edna home. Elmer, the son of the first marriage grew to manhood and was married. He died on the eighteenth day of March 1907, leaving three small children.

Besides the widow and brother, the departed is survived by three grandchildren. They are Emerson LONG, of Hobbieville; Myrtle HOLMES, of Popcorn, and Ethel MAY, of Avoca; also four great-grandchildren and a legion of relatives and friends.

He was of a pioneer family and knew what the hardships of pioneer life was. Uncle Mant was never considered a strong man and had many bad spells of sickness. He remained active in mind and body until his last sickness, which lasted three days. His schooling was very little, but he read and studied for himself and could converse intelligently on any subject. He was justice of peace in Center Township for four years.

During all of hardships and sorrows he never lost his faith in God. He was a great Bible student and could readily give his ideas on any scripture question that was asked him. On arising in the morning he would read his Bible until his wife called him to breakfast. His faults were few and his good qualities many. He was seldom out of humor and never abusive. His many friends grieve to give Uncle Mant up, but what is more beautiful than one who has lived the life of the just and ready to leave this world of sorrow and enter a home of rest where all is joy and peace.

James H. QUILLIN, died at Indianapolis, March 20, 1902, being stricken with apoplexy, from which he never regained consciousness. His remains were interred at Gosport, March 22, under the auspices of the Lyons Lodge of I.O. O. F. of which he had been a member for thirty years. The funeral was preached by William BAKER, he being a warm friend of the deceased and a relative by marriage.

James H. QUILLIN was born September 23, 1843, and was fifty-eight years, five months and twenty-seven days old at the time of his death. He was the second child of William T. and Nancy A. QUILLEN, and was born and raised on the old farm in Taylor Township. At the beginning of the late rebellion he enlisted in the 14TH INDIANA REGIMENT, CO. C under Capt. E. H. C. CAVINS. At the time of enlistment he was seventeen years and six months old. He went into camp at Terre Haute at Camp Vigo. After a short time the regiment was sent to the front and the first battle he was engaged in was the battle of Green Brier on Cheat Mountain. They had many small battles and skirmished with Col. Nathan KIMBELL as their leader. He was wounded at the battle of Winchester on March 23, 1863, at about 1 oÂ’clock in the afternoon and lay on the battlefield until dusk before he was removed from the field. He was shot just below the knee joint on the right leg, breaking the limb and injuring the knee joint. He was taken to the hospital at Craney Island, where he was kept until discharged and sent home in September of the same year. He was at home until the next fall, and then went to New Orleans and joined the 1st HEAVY ARTILLERY under Capt. William BOUGH and served until the close of the war. The last fight was the battle of Mobile Bay. He was discharged with the regiment and located in Greene County on what was then known as the Island, just east of Island City, and on a piece of land lying next to and joining the Daniel FIELDS place on the east, and cleared up a farm as it was all woodland then. At this period he married Joicy WAGONER, a daughter of Noah WAGONER, and to this union were born four children—Samuel N , Rhada, Nancy and Virgil—all of whom have grown to manhood and womanhood. He sold his farm on the Island and bought one near Lyons. There his wife died, leaving him and his four small children. He then took an agency for a monument firm and worked at that for a time. He afterwards married his surviving wife, she being the daughter of Samuel WAGONER and a niece of his first wife. To this union there are no living children. After a short time they sold the farm near Lyons and went into the drug business at Lyons, which business he continued for a few years and then sold out to Riland CRISS. He then turned his attention to the hotel business, which business he followed up to the time of this death.

This sketch was written by his only surviving brother, R. S. QUILLIN, of Dugger.

Obituary of George Ledgerwood [1859-1918]


THE BLOOMFIELD NEWS, Bloomfield, Greene County, Indiana, Thursday, October 10, 1918, Volume XLII, Number 47, Page 8

Once more amid life’s changing scenes another soul has taken its journey to the Great Beyond.

The subject of our sketch, George D. LEDGERWOOD, was born in McCameron Township, Martin County, January 9, 1859. He was the youngest child of the late George D. and Lydia (LYLES) LEDGERWOOD, and was one of eight children all having gone on but Mrs. Margaret CATRON, Rebecca J. LEDGERWOOD, Mrs. Drucilla HOSTETTER, Joseph M. and David of Canada.

Mr. LEDGERWOOD was born on the same farm from which his body was brought to be laid beside the forms of those who have gone before. In his young manhood he identified himself with the Baptist Church at Scotland. For the last thirty years he has been a resident of Oklahoma and of Lawton, Oklahoma since 1901. Since leaving his early home he has bade three or four trips back to the home of his childhood, there to look upon its familiar scenes, the hills, the pebble brook, the old orchard and the friends of his youth. Mr. LEDGERWOOD was never married but made his home most of the time with his sister, Rebecca. In following his request his body was laid to rest in Scotland Cemetery.

He had been in failing health for the past two years, first having been stricken with paralysis and later with leakage of the heart, and for the last six weeks he had been confined to the hospital at Lawton, Oklahoma, where all that human hands could do or medical skill suggest was of no avail and on Sunday, September 29, at 3 p.m., the spirit went home; aged fifty-nine years, eight months and twenty days.

The old family circle is growing smaller; from the same home two years ago last July on Sunday morning “Uncle Jake” went home.
