91st PA: John A Mootheart

John A Mootheart

Before the war

He was born in 1839/43, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, perhaps to Henry and Elizabeth Moothart. [sources: date: 5 (21 in 1861), 6 (19 in 1861), 15 (7 in 1850), 16 (21 in 1862), 14 & 17 (39 in 1883), 20 (17 in 1860), 21 (36 in 1880). place: 15, 16, 17, 20, 21. parents: 15, 20]

In 1850, he was living in ward 5, Northern Liberties, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He was living with Henry and Elizabeth Moothart (presumably his parents), and with William, Charles, George, and Elizabeth (presumably siblings). He had attended school within the year. [source: 15]

In 1851, his father, Henry Moothart, was living at 10 Brook Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. [source: 12]

In 1860, he was living in ward 13, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He was living with his (presumed) brother George and George's family, and his (presumed) mother Elizabeth. The census lists no occupation for him, but George was a chairmaker. [source: 20]

When he enlisted, he was a chairmaker, and was living in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. [sources: 5, 6; see also 16]

Description

When he enlisted, he was 5 feet 7 inches, and had a dark complexion, gray eyes, and dark hair. [sources: 5, 6]

If he is the John A Moothart who enlisted in the Navy in September 1862, he was 5 feet 5-1/2 inches tall, and had a dark complexion, blue eyes, and black hair. [source: 16]

During the war

He enlisted and was mustered into service as a private on 16 November 1861. He was a private in company B. [sources: 1, 4 (14 Oct 61), 10-11]

In May 1862, he was tried by court martial. [source: 9]

He deserted. He returned to duty under the presidential proclamation. His return was recorded on 24 April 1863. [source: 3]

During this desertion, he may have enlisted in the Navy. At least, a John A Moothart enlisted as a Landsman in the Navy on 16 September 1862, at Washington, DC. He was a chairmaker, and had been born in Philadelphia. [source: 16]

He was detailed for duty in the brigade hospital on 9 September 1863. [sources: 2, 4]

In 1863, he was a chaircaner, living (with his brothers Charles, George, and William), at 872 Darien Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. [source: 12]

He reenlisted as a veteran volunteer on 25 December 1863, at Bealton, Virginia. He was enlisted for three years by Lieutenant Carpenter, and mustered by Lieutenant Swan. [sources: 1, 5, 6 (26 Dec)]

He deserted on 1 March 1864. He was dropped from the rolls as a deserter on 3 July 1864. He was a private, in company B. [sources: 1, 6, 7, 10-11; see also 8]

After the war

Perhaps he is the John Moothart who was convicted of counterfeiting in August 1866.

... it appears that on the night of July 2d the accused called at the public house of Michael Maguire, Dillwyn and Willow streets, and left in the possession of the proprietor a box, which, upon examination, proved to contain the bogus plate and other matters incidental to the counterfeiting business. Mr. Maguire at once repaired to Alderman's office and lodged information. The services of two officers were secured, and after being secreted in the hotel until the afternoon of the 4th, arrested the defendants. Upon the person of Foster the officers found two hundred and seventy-seven counterfeit fifty cent notes, in an unfinished state, and a few counterfeit twenty-five cent notes.

On John Moothart was found a single twenty-five cent note, and six or seven dollars in good money. Charles Moothart was arrested almost immediately, at the adjoining house, but upon his person was found no money, either good or bad. Charles said that he had been robbed. John Moothart said that the box was intended for and belonged to a man in Blackberry alley

He was convicted, but Charles was acquitted. Perhaps Charles is the notorious horse thief, who had a brother William who was also a notorious horse thief. [sources: 13, 23]

In 1869, he was a caner, and was living at 872 Darien Street, with his brother George. [source: 12]

In 1873, he was a chairmaker at 876 North 9th Street, and was living with his brother George at 872 Darien Street. [source: 12]

Perhaps he is the John Moothart who was arrested by William Babe Jr on 8 November 1879 as 'a notorious horse thief'. [source: 22]

In 1880, he seems to have been living as a lodger at 631 Pine Street. He was a bartender. He was married, but not living with his wife. [source: 21]

On 3 December 1881, his wife, Kate, died, at 3d above Spruce, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She died of phthisis. On 6 December 1881, she was buried, in the family plot, in Odd Fellows' Cemetery, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The funeral was held from George Moothart's residence, 872 Darien Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. [sources: 14, 18, 19]

On 12 February 1883, he died, at 872 Darien Street, ward 13, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He died of apoplexy. He was a salesman. On 15 February 1883, he was buried, in the family plot, in Odd Fellows Cemetery, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. [sources: 14, 17]

...

The United States vs. Charles Moothart, John Moothart and James Foster. The defendents were indicted for having in their possession a plate for the printing of United States postage currency notes of the denomination of fifty cents, with and for the intent to use the same in counterfeiting United States currency, were [sic] being tried today.

From the evidence given, it appears that on the night of July 2d the accused called at the public house of Michael Maguire, Dillwyn and Willow streets, and left in the possession of the proprietor a box, which, upon examination, proved to contain the bogus plate and other matters incidental to the counterfeiting business. Mr. Maguire at once repaired to Alderman's office and lodged information. The services of two officers were secured, and after being secreted in the hotel until the afternoon of the 4th, arrested the defendants. Upon the person of Foster the officers found two hundred and seventy-seven counterfeit fifty cent notes, in an unfinished state, and a few counterfeit twenty-five cent notes.

On John Moothart was found a single twenty-five cent note, and six or seven dollars in good money. Charles Moothart was arrested almost immediately, at the adjoining house, but upon his person was found no money, either good or bad. Charles said that he had been robbed. John Moothart said that the box was intended for and belonged to a man in Blackberry alley.

John Mootheart and Jame Foster were convicted, and Charles Moothart acquitted.

The Number of Prisoners Liberated
DEATH WARRANTS ISSUED

Accompany the Governor's message to the Legislature, published elsewhere in to-day's issue, was the annual report of the action of the Executive during the year 1870 in the matter of parson. Altogether sixty-two pardons were granted during the year, or five per cent of the number of applications, which reach 1240. In 1869 the number of pardons granted by Governor Geary was precisely the same.

...

6. Charles Moothart. Philadelphia, May 13, 1867. Larceny. Three years in County Prison. Pardoned January 25. Recommended by William B. Mann, J. O. Galton, Thomas Ashton, Richard B. Ott, Robert S. Garison, David Banks, Henry L. Smith, George Carson, George Faber, Rev. Thomas Barry and others. Reasons:--Moothart, according to the certificate of the physician and superintendent of the prison, "is far advanced in consumption and cannot live through his term if confined in prison." Three months and eighteen days remitted. (Since reported dead.)

The prisoner was taken to Delaware county, where he is charged with the theft of horses.



['Out and in', Philadelphia Inquirer, Saturday 22 April 1876, page 2]
[transcribed 31 January 2015, from GenealogyBank]

OUT AND IN.
OLD JAIL BIRDS RETURNING TO ROOST.

Charles Moothart, whose sentence to the Eastern Penitentiary for a term of five years was recorded a day or two ago in our columns, is an old criminal, and is known to the police as one of the most expert horse thieves in the State. Mootheart had served four previous terms in the Eastern Penitentiary, and was liberated only last August, since which time he has been in the County Prison for a couple of brief terms. He has a brother William, who is now serving a twelve years' term at Norristown for the same offense, horse stealing, which seems to be the family weakness.

Beck, who was sentenced with Charles Moothart, is also an old affender, and has been in Cherry Hill before. Beck, however, does not appear to be as accomplished in the horse-stealing line as the Mootharts. He lacks their ingenuity and boldness of design, and consequently works "second fiddle" to these more "gifted" thieves.
