91st PA: Conrad Eisenhart

Conrad Eisenhart

Note

I am not confident I have correctly identified Conrad Eisenhart in the census records.

Before the war

If I have identified the correct Conrad Eisenhart, he was born in November 1841 (10; 5 (21 in 1865), 7 [73 at death in 1920, if that's the correct Conrad Eisenhart], 8 [see 7], 9 [39 in 1880], 10 [58 in 1900], 11 [68 in 1910]). He was born in Germany (5, 9 [Pennsylvania], 10 [Pennsylvania], 11 [Pennsylvania]).

When he enlisted, he was a segar maker (5).

Description

When he enlisted, he was 5 feet 9 inches tall, and had a dark complexion, hazel eyes, and dark hair (5).

During the war

He was a substitute for Patrick Roche (1, 5). He enlisted and was mustered into service on 27 March 1865 (1, 5). He was enlisted for one year, at Chambersburg, Pennsylvania, by Captain Eyster (5). His service was credited to the Seventh Congressional District (5). He was a private, in company G (1, 12).

He received clothing worth $38.33 (5).

On 15 June 1865, he was promoted to corporal, effective 7 June 1865 (2, 4).

He deserted on 25 June 1865 near Washington DC (1, 3, 6). He was a corporal in company G (1, 3, 12).

After the war

In 1880, a Conrad Eisenhart was living at 519 West Philadelphia Street, York, York County, Pennsylvania (9). He was living with his wife Martha, and children Milton, Maggie, Mary Ann, and Henry (9). He was a carpenter (9).

In 1883/1884, Conrad Eisenhart married Ottilia Q [unknown family name] (10, 11). In 1900 and 1910, she had had three children, all of whom were alive (10, 11). This was his second marriage, and her first (11).

In 1900, a Conrad Eisenhart was living at 234 Park Place, York, York County, Pennsylvania (10). He was living with his wife Ottilia, and children Bessie, Theodore, and Chauncey (10). He was a carpenter (10).

In 1910, a Conrad Eisenhart was living at 232 Park Place, York, York County, Pennsylvania (11). He was living with his wife Ottilia, children Theodore and Chauncey, and mother-in-law Sophia Beaver (11). He was a carpenter (11).

He may have died in York in December 1920 (7, 8). If so, he was survived by his wife and three sons (Wesley, Theodore, Chauncey), and two brothers (7,8).
