91st PA: John A Langerbartel

John A Langerbartel

Before the war

He was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in about 1821/25. [sources: date: 7 (37 in 1861, 8 (39 in 1863), 14 (44 at death in 1866), 16 (35 in 1860), 19 (44 in 1866). place: 7, 8, 14, 16.]

On 13 April 1850, he married Ellen Dillon. She was born in June 1826, in Ireland, and immigrated to the United States in 1841. They were married by Reverend George Chandler. They had three known children:

All the children were baptized in St Augustine's Church, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. [source: 11, 13 (4 children, all alive)]

In 1860, he was living in the 12th ward of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He was living with his wife Ellen, and their children Elizabeth, Rebecca, and John. He was a painter. [source: 16]

When he enlisted, he was a painter. [sources: 7, 8]

Description

When he enlisted, he was 5 feet 7-1/2 inches tall, and had a light complexion, grey eyes, and light brown hair. [sources: 7, 8 (5'8", brown hair)]

During the war

He enlisted and was mustered into service on 12 October 1861. He was enlisted for three years, at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, by Captain Gilbert. He was a private, in company G. [sources: 1, 7, 11, 21, 22, 23, 24]

He was present on the muster rolls through 30 April 1863. [source: 11]

He was under treatment in the regiment for diarrhea, dysentery, hemorrhoids, catarrhal [illegible] and [illegible] fever, from March 1863 to January 1865. Franklin B Osborne was his tentmate. Osborne and Daniel Foltz later testified that Langerbartel contracted bronchitis in March or April 1863. [source: 11]

He was then reported present at least July through 31 October 1863, and possibly for all of 1863. [source: 11 (see pages 21-22)]

He was promoted from private to corporal on 26 December 1863. [source: 2]

He reenlisted and was mustered in as a veteran volunteer on 26 December 1863. He was enrolled for three years, at Bealton, Virginia, by Lieutenant Swan. He was 40 years old. He was a painter. He had grey eyes, light brown hair, a light complexion, and was 5 feet 7-1/2 inches tall. [source: 1, 4, 8, 11]

He was present on all muster rolls in 1864. [source: 11]

On 5 November 1864, he was promoted to sergeant, effective 1 November 1864 by special order 104. [source: 3, 6, 7, 8]

On 19 February 1865, he went on a furlough, which ended on 6 March 1865. On the January-February 1865 muster roll, he was reported absent with leave, for fifteen days. He returned on 5 March 1865. [sources: 5, 11]

He was reported present on the remaining muster rolls. [source: 11]

On 27 April 1865, he was promoted to first sergeant, effective 1 April 1865 by special order 25. [sources: 1, 4, 6]

He mustered out on 10 July 1865 with his company. He was a sergeant, in company G. [sources: 1, 11, 21, 22, 23, 24]

After the war

In 1865, he was living at 5 Calvin Place, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He was a painter. [source: 15]

He died on 24 December 1866, at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, of chronic bronchitis (11) or consumption (14 [22 December]). He contracted it while in the service. He was treated by Dr M M Lewis, in 1865 and 1866. He was a house painter. He died at, or was buried from, his late residence, 5 Calvin Place, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. On 26 December 1866, he was buried at Mechanics Cemetery. [sources: 11 (bronchitis), 14 (consumption, 22 Dec), 19 (22 Dec)]

Probably in fall 1868, Ellen Langebartel was living at 5 Calvin Place, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. [source: 17]

In 1870, Catharine [sic] Langarbottle was living in the 13th ward of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She was living with Elizabeth, Rebecca, John, and William. The coincidence of the children's names suggests that this may be Ellen Langebartel (perhaps with a nephew or other relative William?), or perhaps the children may have been living with another relative. [source: 18]

On 30 October 1872, his widow, Ellen Langerbartel, successfully applied for a pension. He attorney was Joseph E Devitt & Company, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. [sources: 9, 10, 11]

In 1873, she was living at 809 North 7th Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She began receiving a pension of $8 per month on 28 March 1873, plus $2 additional per month because of her son John. [source: 11]

In February 1876, a Pension Office Special Agent investigated whether she and her witnesses had made the statements ascribed to them, which they had. He concluded that payment should be resumed. [source: 11]

When John turned sixteen, on 14 March 1876, she was scheduled to stopped receiving the extra $2 per month. [source: 11]

In 1880, his widow, Ellen, was living at 2208 Jefferson Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She was living with Thomas and Elizabeth Ducketh (presumably her daughter and son-in-law), along with (probably) their children Thomas and Charles, and Arthur A (presumably their son John). [source: 12]

In 1900, his widow, Ellen, was living at 1726 Alden Street. She was living with her daughter Rebecca George and Rebecca's family. [source: 13]

His widow, Ellen Langerbartel, died of dysentery, on 1 May 1901, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. On 7 May 1901, she was buried, in American Mechanics Cemetery, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. [sources: 11, 20 (1 May)]

PROOF AS TO SERVICE
Decr 4 1872

The Adjutant General U.S.A. reports name on rolls as John A. Langerbartel also the rank, company, and regiment, and the dates of enrollment and discharge as stated on preceding pages. He also reports mustered as a veteran December 26, 1863, and mustered out with his company Ju[ly] 10th 1865.


PROOF AS TO DEATH.
Adjutant General has no report of his death. The Surgeon General has not been called on for a report as there is no indication that Soldier was in any hospital while in the service.

Evidence filed April 28, 1874
The Surgeon General reports him as John H. Logabartil, was under treatment at Regt from Marc[h] 1863 to January 1865 (when last returned to duty) for diarrhea, dysentery, hemorrhoids, catarrhal [illegible] and [illegible, begins 'int'] fever. Name also appears as Langabot[rest cut off], Langabottel, Langabart [??], John Langburttle, John Langerbottel and John Langabertle.
[After a blank space, the text appears to begin in the middle of a sentence]
quence at the time, and continued affected during whole period afterward, until deponent's connection w th regiment ceased (he was discharged Nov 19 1864) Also that affiant advised the said Langabartel not t[o] re-enlist as his disease had become chronic.

Filed Mar 28 1873
Franklin B. Osborne, shown to harve been "presen[t]" March + April 1863 testifies substantially as above. that he was a "tent mate" with Soldier. That the said Bro[n]chitis continued to affect him until he was discharg[ed].

Filed Mar 15 1873
M M Levis M.D. shown to be a highly reputab[le] physician testifies that he was called to attend the soldier in July 1865 and found him suffering fr[om] Bronchitis, very severe, that he continued to attend him and that the soldier continued to [illegible]

[page 6]

until the 24th of December 1866, when he died of Chronic Bronchitis. That during the whole of the time from his discharge to his death he suffered fr[om] Bronchitis, was completely broken down, and unable to perform manual labor to support himself. That the disease was not aggravated by intemperan[ce] or any bad habit.


Filed Dec 15 1873

Dr. R. J. Lewis corner of Arch and 13th [?] Sts Philadelphia testifies [?] that the soldier J. Langerbartel was attended to [by] Dr. M. M. Lewis in August 1865, and attended him until his death Dec 25 1865, and that Dr. M. M. Lew[is] died December 28 1872.


Filed Dec 6 1873.

The claimant testifies that she has made due and proper efforts to obtain the certificate of some comm[is]sioned officer, but owing to the fact that several of them have been killed, and the others she cannot now find, that she has presented the evidence of his tentmates who knew the history of his disease, which is the best evidence sh[e] can obtain, that these witnesses are sufficiently in[tel]ligent [?] and thoroughly in [illegible] the facts.


Evidence filed since Feby 4 1874

Dr. R. J. Lewis testifies that the records of the late Dr M. M. Lewis show that he attended the soldier in 1865 [and?] 1866.
