Search for your ancestors! George Pease Civil War soldier


Camp Arnold~Pensacola Florida--July 10, 1862

Dear Friend:

I now take my pen in hand to write you a few lines to let you know how I get along. I am well at present and I hope these few lines will find you enjoying the same good blessings of life. You may think [it] strange to get a letter from me--but this afternoon, I got a thinking about you and I thought I would write you a few lines to let you know that I am in the land of the living yet, but I can't tell how long I may be living down here among the Rebels.

I haven't heard anything from you since I saw you in Auburn--till Aunt Rhoda wrote to me and she said you was a living in Sawyers yet and she said you was just as merry as ever now. When you write to me, I want you to write all the news they [sic] is a round there to write--that is if you think it worth while to answer this scribbling, I want you to write how Dan and Charles get along this summer and tell them that they must write to me, and then I will write to them. I want you to wirte and let me know how well Butler gets along this Summer and write and let me know how you enjoyed the fourth of July. And when you see Rhoda Tinker, you may give my love to her and so you may to Nett Butler and kep a good lot for yourself now when you get this this letter.

I want you to read what you can and guess the rest. You must excuse bad writing and spelling for i wrote this in a hurry.

So no more this time and if I get an answer from this the next time I write to you, I wll write a good long one....Mr. George W. Pease. Whe you write to me, Direct your letter to Pensacola Florida in care of Capt. John Choate, Co. H, 75th Regt., NYS Volunteers. Remember me when this you see, wrote by my hand, and it will stand when I am dead and gone.

George W. Pease.

Corporal Pease mustered into Company "H", 75th New York Volunteers on November 26, 1861. The 75th, also known as the Auburn regiment, was composed mainly of members from Cayuga and Seneca counties, New York, and was mustered into the service of the United States at Auburn, for a three years' term on Nov. 26, 1861. It embarked for the south on Dec. 6, 1861, and was stationed at Santa Rosa island and Fort Pickens, Fla., during its first winter in the service, and formed part of the garrison of Pensacola during the summer of 1862. While here, Company "K" joined the Regiment, which was ordered to New Orleans in September. It was assigned to Weitzel's reserve brigade, which had a brisk fight a Georgia Landing. Pease mustered out at Savannah, Georgia, on August 31, 1865.

Brian Brown, author of In the Footsteps of the Blue and Gray: A Civil War Research Handbook which can be purchased from ABE Books kindly sends the following information:
Pease, George W., Company H, 75 NY Infantry Regiment. age 24. Enlisted 9/29/61 at Sciopio (Cayuga Co.) NY. Mustered in 11/26/61. Promoted corporal. 8/3/63. Reduced to private 9/15/64; promoted to corporal again 1/4/65 and to sgt. 7/1/65. Mustered out 8/31/65 at Savannah, Georgia. In 1875, his widow Abby K. applied for a pension and received widow's pension certificate #150817. An individual named Geo. W. Pease married Abigail Sincerbox about 1857 in Cayuga, NY. I imagine this is the same person, but I am not 100% positive.
