91st PA: Adam C Guthrie

Adam C Guthrie

Before the war

He was born in August/September 1816, in New Castle, England. [sources: date: 2 (44 in 1862), 4 (49 yrs 8 months in May 66), 5 (44 in 1866), 8 (44 in 1863), 8 (45 in 1865), 9 (33 in 1850), 10 (46 in 1860). place: 2, 4, 5, 8, 9, 10]

On 20 November 1841, he married Sarah A [unknown family name], at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She was born in 1815/16, in Pennsylvania. They apparently had at least these five children:

[sources: 8, 9, 10]

In 1850, he was living in ward 3, Kensington, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He was living with his (presumed) wife Sarah, and (presumed) children Ann, Mary, William, and James. He was a blacksmith. [source: 9]

In 1860, he was living in ward 23, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He was living with his (presumed) wife Sarah A, and (presumed) children Ann, Mary E, William R, and James A. He was a blacksmith, and owned $100 in personal property. [source: 10]

In 1860-1861, he was a blacksmith, living on Orchard, near Church, Frankford, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. [source: 3]

In 1862, he was a blacksmith, living at Orchard near Green, Frankford, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. [source: 3]

When he enlisted, he was a blacksmith. [source: 2]

Description

When he enlisted in 1862, he was 5 feet 6 inches tall, and had a light (or fair) complexion, grey eyes, and grey hair. In 1863, he was 5 feet 5-1/2 inches tall, and had a light complexion, grey eyes, and grey hair. [sources: 2, 8]

During the war

On 24 November 1862, he was enlisted, at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, by Lieutenant J A Gregory. He was a private in company B. Lieutenant Mason (Acting Assistant Surgeon, USA) certified that he was physically capable of serving as a soldier. [sources: 1, 2]

He is listed on a Muster and descriptive roll of a detachment of US volunteers forwarded for the 91st regiment Pennsylvania infantry, dated 27 November 1862, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. But he was not taken up on the rolls of any of the 91st's companies. [source: 2]

On 16 March 1863, he was discharged at Convalescent Camp, Virginia, on surgeon's certificate of disability, because of organic disease of heart, contracted since enlistment. The Fifth Corps examining board recommended him for discharge. He had been unfit for duty sixty days in the previous two months. He was rated two-thirds disabled. [source: 2]

In 1863, he was a blacksmith, living at Orchard near Church, Frankford, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. [source: 3]

On 15 July 1863, he enlisted as a private in company I of the 26th Pennsylvania Infantry. He was drafted from the 4th district, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. [sources: 8, 14, 16]

He was transferred to company F of the 99th Pennsylvania Infantry. [source: 16]

On 17 [?] April 1863, his son, James Adam Guthrie, died. He was buried in Odd Fellows Cemetery, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. [source: 5]

From 1864 through 1866, he was a blacksmith, living at Orchard above Tacony, Philadephia, Pennsylvania. [source: 3]

About 8 March 1865, he was 'taken with a fit in camp near Petersburg Va', three or four days after developing a severe cold from exposure while on picket. This was followed by paralysis of his right side. Before that, 'he was a good and efficient soldier'. [source: 8]

On 18 March 1865, he was sent to Emory US Hospital, Washington, DC. [source: 8]

In April 1865, he was sent to the US Hospital at Turners Lane, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. [source: 8]

In May 1865, he was sent to McClellan US Hospital. [source: 8]

In July 1865 (or 20 May 1865), he was sent to Mower US General Hospital, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. [source: 8]

On 23 August 1865, he was discharged, on surgeon's certificate of disability. He had improved slightly with treatment, but still had 'partial hemiplegia'. (A later examination said that he '[h]ad paralysis of bladder and rectum at time' he was paralyzed; perhaps the tense suggests that had improved.) He was rated as 1/2 disabled. He was a private, in company F of the 99th Pennsylvania Infantry. [sources: 8, 15-16]

After the war

On 1 September 1865, an examining surgeon determined that he was totally incapacitated from earning a living by manual labor, because of right-side hemiplegia, which was probably permanent. Guthrie claimed he was '[s]omewhat stronger'. [source: 8]

On 13 September 1865, he successfully applied from Philadelphia for a pension, based only on his service in the 99th Pennsylvania Infantry. His post office address was Orchard Street, below Church, Frankford, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. His application was accepted on 26 January 1866, and he received $8 per month, retroactive to 23 August 1865. [sources: 6-7, 8]

On 21 May 1866, he died, at 4231 Orchard Street, ward 23, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He died of apoplexy. He was a blacksmith. On 24 May 1866, he was buried, at North Cedar Hill Cemetery, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. His (apparent) son James Adam, and an unnamed child, were reburied there, from Odd Fellows Cemetery, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Members of the Rising Sun Lodge, International Order of Odd Fellows, and the 99th Pennsylvania infantry, were invited to the funeral. [sources: 4, 5, 8, 11]

On 29 August 1866, his widow, Sarah A Guthrie, successfully applied from Philadelphia for a pension. Her post office address was 4231 Orchard Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Her application was accepted on 6 January 1868, and she received $8 per month, retroaactive to 21 May 1866. As far as I can tell from the pension file, the surprisingly long delay was caused by her not having sent Adam's invalid pension certificate to the Pension Office. [sources: 6-7, 8]

In 1867, his widow, Sarah A Guthrie, was living at 4231 Orchard Street, Frankford, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. [source: 3]

In 1870, his widow, Sarah Guthrie, was living in ward 23, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She was living with her (presumed) daughter Annie. [source: 13]

On 12 February 1891, his widow, Sarah A Guthrie, died. She died of paralysis. She was buried in North Cedar Hill Cemetery. [source: 12]

On 4 June 1891, the Pension Office decided to pay $27.60 of Sarah's unpaid pension as reimbursement (presumably of funeral expenses or of expenses of caring for her during her last illness). [source: 8]

Note on identification

I have not found another candidate for being the Adam Guthrie who enlisted in the 91st. Since the other documents I have found match that Adam in birthdate, birthplace, and occupation, I assume they are all the same person--but I have no other evidence for that assumption. And the fact that the Adam Guthrie who served in the 99th didn't mention his prior service when he enlisted, or when he applied for a pension, is at least slightly troubling, but perhaps explained by his not wanting to admit he had been discharged because of disability.

GUTHRIE.--Suddenly, on the 21st instant, Mr. A. GUTHRIE, in the 5th [sic] year of his age.


We saw his sufferings, heard his sighs,
With throbbing hearts and weeping eyes;
But now he's calm, and sleeps at last,
All grief, all pain, all suffering past.

The relatives and friends of the family, also the Rising Sun Lodge, No. [illegible], I.O. of O.F., and the members of the Ninety-ninth Regiment, P.V., of which he was one, are invited to attend his funeral, this (Thursday) afternoon, at 2 o clock, from his late residence, No. 4231 Orchard street, Frankford.
