    • William was a private in Co. G, 51st Reg. of PA Vol. He was mustered into service 17 Oct 1861, at Harrisburg, PA. He died 25 Nov 1862 of chronic diarrhea.

              Pension papers for William provided proof of the death date for his father, also contained signatures of John and Catherines son and daughter-in-law, John L and Mary Ann, signatures of Wm Strong, son-in-law, and the mark of son Peter and Daniel, Jacob Breon, and Catherine herself.

              It is believed this letter was written by someone other than Wm as the spelling and punctuation are more correct than any of the other letters.

            On Board the Steamer Cossack
            Off Roanoke Island, SC
            March 7th 1862

            Dear Mother,
            I now seat myself to infrom you that I am well at present hoping this may find you the same. We left Camp Union on the 9th of Jan, and arrived at Ft Hatteras about a week after lay there about three weeks. We then sailed for Roanoke Island. We arrived near the Island on the 7th of Feb, The rebels had three forts on the island and our gun boats bombarded one of their forts the whole days on the 7th. In the evening we landed on the island and on the morning of the 8th our men commenced firing and drove the rebels behind their masked battery. About 10 o'clock we entered the action and were led through swamps to flank the rebels. We wadedmud and warter up to out waist. The rebels seeing that they were going to be surrounded left their battery and ran a few miles but our men followed them up and took them all prisoners. We staid at the battery all night and the next day we move on where the rebels had built barracks. We staid there over three weeks and while there I had the mumps but I am entirely cured of them now. We got on board the     Cossack again on the 3rd. We do not know where we are going - but we all expect to be home before long as we all thin the war will be over before long. I sent you $20 in tow letters when we left Annapolis. I would like to know wheather you got it or not. I will close by asking you to write soon and left me know how you are getting along and wheather you recived the money I sent you.
            Your affectionate son
