pictures and documents from the papers of William C Reiff (thanks to Susan Stickles for sending these to me!)

Before the war

He was born on 13 November 1845, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to John Boyer Reiff and Beulah Ann Tice. (Beulah was his second wife; his first wife was Elizabeth Ziegler Tyson (1807-1841), with whom he had seven children.) [sources: date: 4, 5, 6, 19 (17 in 1861), 21, 40 [Bucks County PA], 41. place: 4, 19, 21. parents: 5, 6, 40, 42]

In 1850, he was living in Montgomery Township, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. He was living with his parents, John and Beulah Rieff, and with Pamella F Maclintock. He had attended school within the year. [source: 35]

On 10 November 1861, he and William Shaw ran away from their home in Millville, New Jersey, to enlist. When he enlisted, he was a pumpmaker. [sources: 19, 44]

Description

When he enlisted, he was 5 feet 5 inches tall, and had a light complexion, grey eyes, and brown hair. [source: 19]

During the war

He enlisted and was mustered into service in company H on 14 November 1861. He was enlisted at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, by Captain Gilbert. He had rifle number 80. [sources: 1, 4 (on his 16th birthday), 19, 29 (13 Nov 61), 46-47]

His half-brother Josiah C Reiff served as Adjutant of the 15th Pennsylvania Cavalry. His half-brother Jacob B Reiff (born 1841) died at Andersonville Prison in 1862, and is buried at the Antietam National Cemetery. [sources: 29, 42]

In March and April 1862 he was a sentry at the Old Capital Prison, in Washington DC. [source: 2]

He was present after the Battle of Antietam, and had a "ghastly adventure", which he later described in a letter to the National Tribune. [source: 17]

He was present at the Battle of Gettysburg. He and Jim Thompson were detailed as pickets on the night of 2 July 1863. They were placed about 125 feet in front of the wall the regiment built, and quickly built their own wall from loose rocks. Because they were having trouble staying awake, despite rubbing onion juice, pepper, and tobacco in their eyes they requested temporary relief. The officer of the guard, Joseph Jones, granted their request, and returned with Stephen Whinna (H) and George S Phillips. Reiff and Thompson slept for two hours, before being awakened about 2 AM and standing the watch until the sun rose. Thompson was ordered back before Reiff, who had to run a gauntlet of shot and shells back to the regiment's line. [sources: 3, 20, 23, 26]

He also brought coffee to the members of his company--with more dirt than coffee, because of a Confederate shell! And on the third day, he observed a cavalryman grab a Confederate by the hair and carry him toward their lines. [sources: 3, 30]

Bates does not list him as a veteran, but the dates suggest that he was. [source: 1]

During the Battle of the Wilderness, he could not remove the ramrod from his gun because he had shot so many times. Joseph T Jones told him to jam it against a tree, to try to force the bullet down. But when he tried that, the ramrod broke. Reiff was apparently so upset that he 'cried like a child'. Jones suggested that if he waited a bit, he would be able to get a gun, and in a few minutes he did. [source: 43]

On 8 August 1864, the commander of a detail of musicians ordered to report to the Fifth Corps Hospital at City Point asked why Reiff hadn't reported. On 13 August 1864, Tayman replied that the original order did not mention Reiff. And on 13 September 1864, Sellers was still trying to deal with the confusion. However, on 16 September 1864, Sellers suggested that he be detached for duty in the Fifth Corps Hospital at City Point, Virginia. [sources: 8, 9, 10]

On 15 October 1864, he was detailed by Eli Sellers as orderly in the second brigade headquarters. [sources: 11, 16]

He was promoted on 15 May 1865 to sergeant, perhaps effective 1 May 1865. On 31 May 1865, he was promoted to sergeant, effective 31 May. [sources: 1, 14, 18]

On 3 July 1865, he was promoted to 1st sergeant, effective 1 July 1865. [sources: 1, 15]

He mustered out on 10 July 1865 with his company. He was a private, in company H. [sources: 1, 46-47]

After the war

He joined the Baptist church in 1865. [sources: 4, 5]

His brother, Josiah C Reiff, 'educated him, and took him into his office until his health failed, when he had to seek other employment'. [source: 29]

He graduated from the Crittendon Business College, and from the Pennsylvania State Normal School. [sources: 4, 5]

He was prevented from becoming a missionary to Japan by throat problems. Instead, he primarily worked as a teacher or superintendent. [source: 4]

In 1870, he seems to have been attending the Pennsylvania State Normal School, in Millersville, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. [source: 37]

He married Sara Ann Curl on 15 September 1874, in Philadelphia Pennsylvania. She was born on 9 September 1850, in Bristol, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. They had three children:

[sources: 4, 5, 6, 21, 22, 39, 40]

On 21 June 1876, he successfully applied for a pension. [source: 24, 28]

His daughter Beulah married H C Robb, and they had one living child when William Reiff died, William Preston Robb. His daughter Mary married Joseph McMillen, and they had one living child when William Reiff died, Mary Helen McMillen. [sources: 5, 42]

They lived in Indiana for two years. When they returned to Pennsylvania, he was a superintendent of schools for two years. [source: 5]

They moved to Marion County Kansas in 1878, where he taught in 1887. He then worked in real estate. [sources: 4, 5]

In 1885, he was living in Gale, Marion County, Kansas. He was living with his wife Sarah A and their children Mattie and SBM. He was teaching. [source: 37]

In 1888, he visited Philadelphia, and talked with Eli Sellers and others. [source: 20]

In 1890, he wrote to the National Tribune, describing George Black. Reiff was living in Marion, Kansas. [source: 45]

They moved to the Pecos Valley in 25 October 1892, because of his ill health. He was active in the schools. They lived in Hagerman for one year (about 1895), taking up a desert claim there. He later taught at the first school in Miller Station (later called Artesia). He worked in real estate for years, and eventually had to give that up because of ill health; for the last five years of his life he could not work. [sources: 4, 5, 30]

In 1895, he was living in Eddy, New Mexico, and expressing pessimism about young people's lack of attention to public affairs. [source: 31]

In 1900, he was living in Eddy County, New Mexico, in a house he owned (but which was mortgaged). He was in real estate. He was living with his wife, Sarah A Reiff, and their daughters, Martha, Sarah [sic], and Mary. [source: 21]

On 24 May 1907, he wrote the South Carolina Adjutant General, asking for information about Lieutenant Colonel Johnson, formerly of the (Confederate) 6th South Carolina Cavalry. Johnson had engaged in a hand-to-hand sabre fight with Reiff's half-brother Josiah C Reiff in April 1865. Unfortunately, the records on which Reiff was relying were wrong; Johnson actually served in the 3rd South Carolina Cavalry. The Adjutant General sent the letter to the South Carolina State Historical Commission, and it was published on 3 June 1907 in the Charleston News and Courier. Johnson had, apparently, died, by January 1897. [source: 33]

In 1910, he was living in Carlsbad, Eddy County, New Mexico, on a farm. He was not working. He was living with Sarah, Beulah (who was a public school teacher), and Mary. [source: 22]

On 16 June 1910, he wrote Joseph T Jones; Jones replied on 2 July 1910. Among other things, Jones said,

You always were a good soldier while I was a member of the 91st and you did your duty as honestly as any young man could do it and I have often thought of you but I have forgotten the names of most of the boys.

[source: 43]

In 1911, he was living in Carlsbad, [Eddy County,] New Mexico. [source: 29]

According to a funeral oration by his friend C H McLenathen, he was patient and never complained, although he was in pain because of his poor health. [sources: 4, 5]

He died in Carlsbad, New Mexico, on 4 April 1913, and was buried somewhere he had selected, "next to the grave of Rev. S. R. Wood, who was a valued friend of the deceased". (He had said that because he couldn't be buried on Little Round Top, he didn't care where he was buried.) He is now buried in Carlsbad Cemetery, Carlsbad, Eddy County, New Mexico. [sources: 4, 5, 20, 28, 41]

On 5 May 1913, his widow, Sarah A Reiff, succesfully applied from New Mexico for a pension. [sources: 24, 28]

In 1920, Sarah A Reiff was living in Tyrone Township, Grant County, New Mexico. She was living with her daughter Mary and Mary's family. [source: 25]

In 1930, Sarah A Reiff was living in San Gabriel Township, Los Angeles County, California. She was living with her daughter Beulah, Beulah's husband, and several other relatives. [source: 27]

In 1935, Sara A Reiff was living in Pasadena, Los Angeles County, California, as was her granddaughter Margaret A McMillan. [source: 38]

In 1940, his widow, Sara A Reiff, was living in ward 2, Carlsbad, Eddy County, New Mexico. She was living with her granddaughter Margaret A McMillan, and a lodger. She owned the house, which was worth $2,500. [source: 38]

On 10 December 1940, Sarah Ann Reiff died, in Monrovia, California. She was buried in Carlsbad Cemetery, Carlsbad, Eddy County, New Mexico. [sources: 39, 40]
