He was born about 1835/1838, in Paris, France, to George Augustus Hengiston Oldmixon and Francis Margaret [unknown family name]. [sources: date: 7 (29 in 1864), 8 (42 in 1880), 22 (about 1838), 47 (1834). place: 8, 22, 47 (Saxony)]
He was baptised on 21 September 1838, at Paris, France. [source: 24]
In March 1861, he graduated from Jefferson Medical College. [sources: 21, 46]
He was living in Chester County, Pennsylvania, when he enlisted. [source: 7]
He was appointed assistant surgeon on 28 April 1864. He enlisted and was mustered into service as an assistant surgeon on 22 May 1864, in the field. On 9 June 1864, he was reported assigned to duty in the regiment. [sources: 1, 5, 7, 13, 43]
On 27 October 1864, he went on a furlough because of a disability, which was to expire on 16 November 1864. He returned by 17 November 1864. [sources: 6 (citing SO 268, 5th Army Corps, Army of Potomac), 15, 16]
In February 1865, he returned to the Surgeon in Chief, 3rd Brigade, a request for information about James Thompson. [source: 26]
He was probably the assistant surgeon the author of an anonymous contemporary account reports as helpful and successfully treating him with Tincture of Iron for exhaustion. [source: 2]
George Oldmixon was the surgeon at Fort Yuma for many years. He experimented on Gila Monsters, concluding that they were not poisonous. [source: 14]
In October 1875, he was ordered to report to the Department of Arizona, for orders. On Thursday, 30 September 1875, he arrived in Arizona City, Yuma County, Arizona Territory, having travelled from San Francisco by Steamer. He was assigned to duty as Post Surgeon, Camp San Carlos, Arizona Territory. Some time in 1875, a picture was taken of him at Camp Apache, Arizona. [sources: 20, 32, 40, 41]
In January 1877, he was granted a leave. [source: 19]
Effective 30 June 1877, his contract as Acting Assistant Surgeon General was annulled. [source: 18]
In 1880, George S Oldmixon was an Acting Assistant Surgeon, in the US Army. He was living in Camp Bowie, Pima, Arizona, commanded by 2nd lieutenant Augustus Blockson. (His father, Captain George Oldmixon, died in April 1880. His mother and brother were living in West Caln Township, Chester County, Pennsylvania.) [sources: 8. family: 25, and 1880 US census microfilm series T9, film 1114, page 79 C = 19 handwritten]
In June 1881, he was ordered to go to San Francisco, California, and report to First Lieutenant P H Ray, for duty with the expedition to Point Barrow, Alaska. [source: 39]
Dr George Oldmixon, from the United States Army, was part of the International Polar Expedition to Point Barrow, Alaska, from October 1881 to October 1883. This expedition, sponsored by the United States Army Signal Service, and led by First Lieutenant Patrick Henry Ray, established a permanent station for various observations (including weather), and collected specimens of animals, plants, and minerals. Ray also did ethnographic studies of the Point Barrow Eskimos. This was part of the United States' contribution to the International Polar Year of 1881. Oldmixon seems not to have had much medical work to do: [sources: 9, 10, 11]
"During the whole period all the members of the expedition enjoyed excellent health, not having a single man on the sick report for two years." [source: 11, p.379]
A George S Oldmixon was a physician in Luzerne County, Pennsylvania, according to a 1893 history. He was a veteran. [source: 12, 35]
On 8 April 1889, he died, in Plymouth, Luzerne County, Pennsylvania. [source: 22, 23, 47 (9 Nov 1889)]
A George Scott Oldmixon, who may be the person who served in the 91st, married Corinne Rhodes. She was born in July 1844, in Buenos Aires, Argentine Republic, and immigrated to the United States in 1849. She was probably born to William A Rhodes and Louisa [unknown family name]. They apparently had the following children:
Louise Oldmixon, daughter of 'Dr Oldmixon', became an actress because her family experienced 'one of those reverses of fortune that all families have had administered to them'. [sources: 28, 29, 36, 37, 38, 47]
In 1870, Cath [sic] Oldmixon was living with William and A Rhodes. She also apparently had three children living with her, Pauline, Daisey, and Harriet. [sources: 37]
Corinne Oldmixon continued living at 2049 Chestnut after her father (William A Rhodes) died, through about 1875. [source: 27]
In 1885, George S Oldmixon was a surgeon, living in Plymouth, Pennsylavnia. He had practiced in Pennsylvania since 1871. [source: 46]
In 1900, Corinne was living at 53 Everett Street, ward 3, Newport, Newport County, Rhode Island. She was living with her stepdaughter Sophie M Hume, and a servant. [source: 30]
On 27 May 1901, Sophie Hume, daughter of W S Oldmixon, of West Philadelphia, was divorced from Waltomar H H Hume. [sources: 33, 34]
In 1910, Corinne Oldmixon was living at 2210 Pine Street, ward 7, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She was living with her daughter Sophie Hume, and a servant. [sources: 27, 31]
She continued living at 2210 Pine Street until about 1913, when she moved to 905 South 48th Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She lived there through at least (approximately) 1916. [source: 27]
In 1920, Corinne was living at 4701 Baltimore Avenue, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, with her daughter Sophia O Henderson. [source: 44]
On 12 April 1932, Corrine Oldmixon was buried, in Woodlands Cemetery. She was buried in the 'family vault'--apparently the Rhodes family vault, and not an Oldmixon family vault. [source: 45]

I am not at all confident that all these records are of the same person.
The meager facts I know from Civil War records are that he was a surgeon, was 29 when he enrolled in 1864, and was living in Chester County, Pennsylvania. [source: entry 7 in the sources above]
A George A Oldmixon (Captain, born 1796/97, in England) was living in West Caln Township, Chester County, Pennsylvania in 1870 and 1880, with his wife Francis Margaret (born ca 1821/22, England) and son Chester (born 1856/57, Pennsylvania). According to an entry in the LDS International Genealogical Index, George A and Francis had a child George Scott, born about 1838, in Paris. [sources: entry 22 in the sources above; see also 1870 US census, Pennsylvania Chester County, West Caln Township, microfilm series M593, film 1325, page 124 = 31 handwritten, and 1880 US census, Pennsylvania Chester County, West Caln Township, enumeration district 73, microfilm series T9, film 1114, page 79 = 19 C handwritten]
The fact that that George S Oldmixon, son of George A and Francis, was born in France links him to the George S Oldmixon living in Arizona in 1880. [source: 8]
Further, a George S Oldmixon seems to have died in Luzerne County, Pennsylvania. The IGI record links him to the son of George A and Francis, and a late newspaper report indicates that he was a veteran ('MD USA'). [sources: 22, 23, 35, 37, 42]
Further, a George Scott Oldmixon married Corinne Rhodes. They had four children, including Francis Pauline Scott Oldmixon, who died on 27 September 1877, in Providence, Rhode Island. One fact suggests that this George Scott Oldmixon is the one who served in the US Army after the Civil War--the 1874 Philadelphia directory lists George S Oldmixion [sic], "u.s.a.", as living with Corinne's mother Louisa, at the address Corinne lived at before and after 1874. [sources: 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 34, 35]
The George Scott Heynges Oldmixon in the Ancestry family tree (source 47 above) was married to Corina, with the above-listed children, but according to the tree lived in the Channel Islands in 1871, and died on 9 November 1889 in the US. (They cite the National Probate Calendar of England and Wales as evidence for his death; I have not seen it. But they also cite a Plymouth city directory, which lists '8 April 1889' as his death date.) I don't know what to make of that evidence.
In my summary above, I have assumed that all these George Scott Oldmixon's are the same person, but that is very uncertain. I have not found any evidence that shows they are different, but I would not be at all surprised to find that they are.

'Only two sections of the United States enjoy what might in the strictest sense be termed a tropical climate; namely, the southernmost extremity of Florida and that part of Arizona that lies for a distance of 100 miles on either side of the Colorado and Gila rivers. The first is a rather mild tropical climate, but the second is all and more than one could expect in the sultriest region under the equator.
'Among those now resident in this city who formerly lived in this region is Mr. Rodney Vedder, of 11 Fourth Street southeast, a clerk in the War Department, and for many years an army paymaster stationed at Fort Yuma. In conversation recently with a Post reporter he said:
'"Like most places that are far removed from the centers of civilization, the valley of the Gila and the Colorado is but little known. For instance, we have in that region around the mouth of the Gila River a very peculiar reptile that for some reason has received the grotesque name of the Gila monster. Up until quite recent years this reptile was comparatively unknown, and I remember seeing along about 1874 a picture in a magazine that one would not suspect of such things, of an Indian in moral combat with one of these Gila monsters, the 'monster' being as large as a full grown buffalo.
'"Nowadays, however, the Gila monster, which some kind-hearted naturalist should take in hand and rechristen with a better and kindlier name, is fairly well known, although the question of whether or not this lizard is poisonous is still an open one. The popular notion is that this reptile is as dangerous as a rattlesnake, but the proof thus far gathered seems to indicate that it is as harmless as an eel. Dr. Oldmixon, who for a long time was the surgeon at Fort Yuma, and who afterward accompanied the Point Barrow Expedition, made a number of experiments with the Gila monster during the years from 1870 to 1890, with the result that he became convinced that it was not poisonous.'Worse Than a Bulldog.
'"The reptile has a wonderfully powerful pair of jaws, and when it come to biting, he can beat the worst bulldog that ever lived. What is more, when he clamps his jaws on anything or anybody, he holds on with a determination and tenacity that is little short of astonishing. To be bitten by one of these reptiles is, of course, very excruciating, and doubtless those who know something of the reptile's qualities have jumped at the conclusion that because the Gila monster was a most ferocious biter, he was also extremely poisonous.
'"While I was in the Southwest, I did not pay very close attention to the habits and beliefs of the Indians, and am not able to say what view the Papagoes, Pimas, Yumas, and Maricopas take of the Gila monster, or what their views and beliefs are on the question of whether the reptile is poisonous, but I do know that the Mexicans look upon it with horror, and will go out of their way to avoid localities where they happen to be numerous. I was stationed at Fort Yuma from 1865 to 1880, and in all that time I did not see any one die of the bite of a Gila monster. I have, of course, heard a great deal about such things, and the soldiers, cowboys, and greasers about Fort Yuma have told me stories without end of persons whom they knew and had seen die of the bite of these lizards, but in every case the party telling such stories had either himself received it second hand or else had seen some one die from what was alleged to have been the bite of a Gila monster.
'"During the years that I served at Fort Yuma it was a common thing for the government to send troops to Yuma from San Francisco on board a steamer, around by way of the Gulf of California and up the Gila and Colorado rivers to their destination. This was especially the case before the building of the great transcontinental lines of railroad, and even in the early day the fame of the Seris, that ferocious and little-known tribe of Indians living on Tiburon Island, in the Gulf of California, had gone abroad in the land. On our way south from San Francisco to Mazatlan, Mexico, the steamer made a number of stops, but after we left that point until we reached the mouth of the Gila River we steered clear of land, and especially of Tiburon Island.'Regarded as Cannibals.
'"You see, in that day every one had an idea that the Seris were cannibals, and if it so happened that for any cause whatever, either through stress of weather or breakage of machinery, the vessel carrying troops had to come to anchor anywhere near Tiburon Island, an extra guard was put out, and every precaution taken to prevent any of the soldiers from leaving the ship in its boats. Nor were these precautions unnecessary, for the Seris are continually prowling about the Gulf of California in their light grass boats or balsas, in search of something to kill or eat. Reaching the mouth of the Colorado River, the troops brought around from San Francisco were transferred from the steamer to a river packet, that did not draw over 28 inches of water, and from there they made the rest of the trip up to Yuma.
'"Although Fort Yuma had its draw backs, it had one great advantage. Scattered up and down the Valley of the Colorado and the Gila are the Maricopas, Pimas, Papagoes, and Yumas, Indians who are self-supporting and peaceful and who are all agriculturists. Being of this character, they were, of course, the natural enemies of the Apaches and the Seris, tribes that have long been the scourge of the Southwestern country, and while it is true that the first-mentioned tribes are peacefully inclined, they have, nevertheless, been able for centuries to more than hold their own against the Apaches. As a result of this the Apache has always entertained a wholesome fear of the Gila Valley tribes, and in their raids the Apaches have always taken good care to give the region occupied by the Maricopas, Papagoes, &c., a wide berth.
'"While New Mexico and the country to the east of what is known as Maricopa Wells has from its earliest settlement suffered continually from the depredations and raids of the Apaches, all the region west of Maricopa Wells to the Pacific coast has enjoyed peace and immunity from the horrors and turmoil of Indian warfare.'Robbed of Water Supply.
'"The peaceful tribes that I have mentioned were able to carry on agriculture by means of a very primitive system of irrigation, obtaining their water supplies from the Colorado and Gila rivers. Recently, however, since this country has begun to fill up with settlers and the government has undertaken to supply them with water, these peaceful tribes that have so long remained the friends and protectors of the white men have been robbed of their water supply. When you rob a man of his means of irrigation in the Southwest it simply means starvation for the party thus treated. Consequently they are in rather sore straits, but the government, recognizing their value as a protecting element, has come to their rescue and is now supplying them with provisions until other arrangements can be made whereby they will again be self-supporting.
'"Another remarkable feature of the country which one does not encounter in any other section of the United States is the rivers that flow for some distance until they strike the desert, where they disappear, to again reappear at a considerable distance from where the waters sank into the sand. The most remarkable example of this sort is that of the Santa Cruz River, which, rising in the Mexican state of Sonorra, flows north to a point not far fromTucson, where it disappears, to again rise to the surface at a point eight miles distant, from which latter spot it continues on its course, finally emptying into the Gila. The locality where it sinks into the sand resembles a broad expanse of marsh and is one vast quagmire of quicksand.
'"One other locality concerning which a great deal of nonsense has been written is the famous Death Valley of Southern California, not far from the border of Arizona. I remember reading once a story about this place in which it was stated that the bed of this valley was far below the surface of the sea; that it was the hottest place on the earth's surface, and that it was filled with venemous serpents of the most repulsive and disgusting character; in short, a regular Dante's Inferno.
'"As a matter of face [sic], the bed of this valley, while very low, is not below sea level, and as for the heat, the temperature of this depression is about the same the year around as at Fort Yuma and other places that I might mention in the Southwest. As for serpents, Death Valley is as barren and destitute of life as the inside of a copper boiler. What, then, you ask, makes it so dangerous? Simply this: Death Valley is situated in the middle of the Colorado Desert and is about sixty miles broad. In no part of the depression is there a drop of water, and it is simply this lack of the life-giving fluid that makes any attempt at crossing the valley extremely dangerous."'['Late military orders', [Arizona] Weekly Journal Miner 22 June 1877, page 3]

NEWPORT, R.I., May 27.--Sitting in the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court to-day, Judge William H. Douglas granted decrees of absolute divorce to Mrs. Sallie Hargous Elliott, Mrs. Augusta Floyd Bowen and Mrs. Sophie M. F. Hume. No one of the cases occupied more than fifteen minutes of the time of the court.
Mrs. Hume is the daughter of the late W. S. Oldmixon, of Philadelphia.['Divorce follows after 13 weeks of matrimony', Philadelphia Inquirer, 28 April 1901, section 1, copy of page 7]
NEWPORT, R.I., April 27.--Another interesting society divorce is on order for trial at the May term of the Supreme Court, the petitioner being Mrs. Sophie M. Hume, a woman of rare personal charms, and the respondent being Waltomar H. H. Hume, a prominent insurance man of New York, who represented the Mutual Life Insurance Company at the Paris Exposition.
Mrs. Hume is the youngest society woman who ever sought divorce in Newport, being only 23. Mr. and Mrs. Hume were married in New York in September, 1898, and lived together only thirteen weeks.

WEST PHILADELPHIA society will be interested in learning that Miss Louise Bampfield, now with Mme. Janauschek's "Harvest Moon" Company, at the Arch, is a star from their own firmament, being no other than Miss Louise Oldmixon, daughter of Dr. Oldmixon, formerly prominent in that section of the city. Miss Bampfield, to call her by her professional name, has adopted the theatrical profession from the highest motives that can overcome a young lady's natural reluctance to come before the public. Her family experiencing one of those reverses of fortune that all families have had administered to them, she availed herself of her acknowledged histrionic ability in the hope of giving a more favorable turn to fortune's wheel. With Tennyson she has learned to say: "Thy wheel and thee, I neither love nor hate." Her friends, of whom she has many in the home of her girlhood, will be glad to find that her success has fully justified her choice of a profession. Her reception in this city has been deservedly kind, the critics all admitting that of her very inadequate part she develops all the capabilities. In such a role, requiring her to personate a young, lovely and accomplished lady, she at least has reality in her favor to start with.['Army articles', National Republican [Washington DC], 27 June 1881, p.1]
