Military Monday: Daniel Russell Woodward in Co. E, 16th N.H. Regiment

My Great Grandfather Daniel Russell Woodward served with Company E (Captain Jonathan P. Sanborn’s Company) in the 16th New Hampshire Regiment, N.H. Volunteers. According to his Certificate of Disability found within his pension application [file #WC-711-973, National Archives, Washington, D.C.]. Daniel R. was enlisted by Sanborn on 12 September 1962 to serve 9 months. Following an accident in camp where he fell on a tree stump, he was listed as unfit for duty and and given a certificate of disability for discharge on the 27th April 1863 at New Orleans, Louisiana, where he received a disability discharge from A.W. Smyth MD.

    Hello Linda:

    I came to this site looking for information on the 16th NH where two of my distant uncles on my mother’s side, Luther and Lucius Stone, served in Co. A. (Luther died in New Orleans in July of 1863, and my siblings and I plan to search for his grave during a trip next month, most likely his first visitors in 150 years).

    Imagine, however, my surprise to find all the Woodward information here too, and I look forward to perusing it. We are of the NH and Massachusetts variety. My grandfather, Albert S. Woodward, was a school teacher and principal in Southboro, MA, where there is currently an elementary school named for him. I don’t know of any connection to Daniel R. Woodward of the 16th NH, but there may be one. I will put the question to my brother who is far more conversant with the family history than I am.
