Albert Judson Quick

Before the war

He was born in 1840/41, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, perhaps to Charles Quick and Jane [unknown family name]. [sources: date: 5 (20 in 1861), 11 (23 at death), 12 (9 in 1850), 13 (23 at death). place: 5, 12. parents: 12]

In 1850, he was living in New Market Ward, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He was living with Charles and Jane Quick (presumably his parents), and with 9 other Quick's (presumably siblings). He had attended school within the year. [source: 12]

In 1860, he may be the Albert S Quick living in South Ward, Lewisburg Borough, Union County, Pennsylvania. He was an apprentice baker, living with Richard Cooper, who was a baker. [source: 15]

When he enlisted, he was a confectioner. [source: 5]

Description

When he enlisted, he was 5 feet 7-1/2 inches tall, and had a light complexion, grey eyes, and light hair. [source: 5]

During the war

He enlisted and was mustered into service on 21 August 1861. He was enlisted for three years, at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, by Colonel Reiff. He was a private in company A. [sources: 1, 5, 17]

On 5 September 1861, he was married, to Anna Davis Young. They were married by Reverend Charles W Quick, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She was born in 1837/41, in Pennsylvania. They had one known child:

[sources: 11, 14, 16]

On 25 February 1863, he was detailed as brigade baker. [source: 3]

He returned to duty on 24 April 1863. [source: 4]

He fought at the Battle of Gettysburg. [source: 9]

On 24 December 1863, he reenlisted, at Bealton, Virginia. On 26 December 1863, he was mustered in as a private, and veteran volunteer, at Bealton, Virginia. [source: 14]

He was wounded on 12 May 1864 at Spottsylvania Court House, Virginia. He died in the US General Hospital (Nicetown Hospital), Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on 22 June 1864 of those wounds. He was a private, in company A. [source: 1, 2, 5, 6, 10, 11, 13 (8 May), 14, 17]

On 27 June 1864, he was buried in Mount Moriah Cemetery, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He was buried from Forty-first street, above Hutton, the residence of his mother in law, Mrs S A Young. [sources: 1, 11, 13]

After the war

On 24 October 1864, his widow, Anna Davis Quick, applied successfully for a pension, from Pennsylvania, under the Act of 14 July 1862. Her post office was 41st above Hutton Street, West Philadelphia. Captain F H Gregory provided evidence in support of her application (dated 20 July 1864). Her application was accepted on 22 March 1864, and she received $8 per month retroactive to 22 June 1864. [sources: 7, 8 (21 Oct), 14]

On 27 May 1867, his widow, Anna D Quick, applied for an increase in pension under the Act of 25 July 1866. Her post office address was 1225 North 10th Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Her application was accepted on 28 October 1867, and she received an additional $2 per month as long as Albert Quick was less than sixteen years old, retroactive to 25 July 1866. [source: 14]

In 1880, his widow, Anna Quick, was living at 119 South 34th Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She was living with their son Albert. He was a clerk in a glass factory. [source: 16]

On 4 March 1890, Anna Quick was dropped from the pension rolls. The file does not indicate whether she was dropped because she had died or because she had remarried, and does not give her last address. [source: 14]

In 1917-1919, and again in 1937-1939, several people from New York City asked for information about Anna Quick, which the Pension Bureau supplied in part. [source: 14]
