91st PA: George A Cline

George A Cline

Before the war

He was born in 1842/43 (3 (21 in 1864)). He was born in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania (3).

When he enlisted, he was a mason (3).

Description

When he enlisted, he was 5 feet 8 inches tall, and had a dark complexion, brown eyes, and dark hair (3).

During the war

He enlisted and was mustered into service on 2 February 1864 (1, 3). He was enlisted for three years, at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, by Lieutenant Shipley (3). He was mustered in by Lieutenant Burke (3). He was a private in company D (1, 6, 7). He had a written consent from his parents, and was sworn as to his age (2).

He was absent without leave on 11 March 1864, having failed to report when the regiment was ordered to return to the army (2). Because Sinex then reported that he had written consent from his parents to enlist, and was sworn as to his age, someone seems to have raised a question about his age (2).

He was wounded on 18 June 1864 at Petersburg, Virginia (1).

He was mustered out on 10 July 1865 with his company (1). He was a private, in company D (6, 7).

After the war

On 20 November 1869, he applied successfully from Pennsylvania for a pension (4, 5).

He died on 26 February 1899 (5).

On 11 October 1909, his widow, Mary A Clime, applied successfully from Pennsylvania for a pension (4, 5).
