91st PA: John Blazo

John Blazo

Before the war

He may be the John Blazo who was born on 8 April 1831, in Parsonsfield, York County, Maine, to John Blazo and Nanzy Towle. [sources: date: 12 (Apr 31), 13 (8 Apr 31), 14 (18 Apr 31); 4 (18 in 1861), 7 (18 in 1861), 8 (19 in 1850), 9 (9 in 1860), 10 (38 in 1870), 11 (49 in 1880), 15 (74 years 6 months 11 days at death). place: 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 14, 15. parents: 8, 13, 14, 15]

In 1850, he may be the John Blazo living in Parsonsfield, York County, Maine. He was living with his parents, siblings, and two others. He was a farmer, and had attended school within the year. [source: 8]

In 1860, he may be the John Blazo living in Parsonsfield, York County, Maine. He was living with his wife Harriet, children George and Hannah, and a medical student. He was a farmer. [source: 9]

He may be the John Blazo who, on 28 March 1855, married Hannah F Hodgdon. They had one child:

[sources: 9, 14]

He may be the John Blazo who, on 9 May 1858, married Harriet Burley Burleigh, in Effingham, New Hampshire. They had three children:

[sources: 9, 10, 11, 14]

During the war

He enlisted in company H of the 6th New Hampshire Infantry, on 19 October 1861. On 28 November 1861, he was mustered in as a private in company H. [sources: 1, 4 (at Portsmouth, Va [sic], 5, 7 (at Keene NH)]

On 31 December 1861, he was taken sick to a hospital in Georgetown. [source: 7]

According to a later report, on 2 January 1862 he was returned to duty. However, on the January-February 1862 muster roll for company H of the 6th New Hampshire Infantry, he is reported absent sick at Georgetown Hospital, Washington DC, since 30 December 1861. [source: 7]

On the March-April and May-June 1862 muster rolls for company D of the 91st Pennsylvania Infantry, he is reported present. The March-April muster roll reports him 'Transfd by regtl order Washington Apl 9 /62 from 6 N.H. Vols.'. [source: 6]

Apparently the 6th New Hampshire didn't receive the notice that he was transferred. Their muster rolls from March-April 1862 through September-October 1864 report him absent sick at Georgetown Hospital. Eventually, they reported him discharged on 27 November 1864 because his term of service had expired. He was due $100 in bounty. [source: 7]

He is listed on the company D 91st Pennsylvania muster roll for July-August 1862, but not reported as present or absent. [source: 6]

On an 18 August 1862 Special muster roll, he is reported present, as a private in company D of the 91st Pennsylvania Infantry. [source: 6]

On 1 September 1862, he deserted at Camp near Clouds Mills, Virginia (also reported as on 20 August 1862 or 22 August 1862). He was then a private. [sources: 1 (20 Aug), 2 (22 Aug), 3 (no date, Alexandria VA), 4 (20 Aug, Alexandria VA), 5, 6 (20 Aug 62 (muster-out roll), 1 Sep 62 (Sep-Oct 62 muster roll))]

After the war

In 1870, he may be the John Blazo who was living in Parsonsfield, York County, Maine. He was living with his wife Harriet, children Hannah, Nancy, and Laura, and a laborer. He was a teamster, and owned $700 (?) in real estate, and $500 in personal property. [source: 10]

On 6 April 1877, the Adjutant General's Office, Washington DC, reported:

Was admitted to Seminary Genl Hosp'l Georgetown, D.C. Dec. 30, 1861 and ret'd to duty Jan'y 2, 1862. Investigation fails to elicit further information.

[source: 7]

In 1880, he may be the John Blazo who was living in Parsonsfield, York County, Maine. He was living with his wife Harriet, children Hannah, Ida, and Laura, and sister-in-law Comfort Burley. He was a farmer. [source: 11]

In 1900, he may be the John Blazo who was living in Parsonsfield, York County, Maine. He was living with his daughter Jennie and her husband, and his sister-in-law Comfort Burleigh. He was a farmer. He owned his farm, which was not mortgaged. [source: 12]

He may be the John Blazo who, on 19 October 1905, died, in Parsonsfield, York County, Maine. He died of syncope. He was a farmer. [sources: 14, 15]

Note on identification

Assuming that Charles Blazo (D) is his cousin (son of Robert T Blazo and Mary Polly Freeman) is very tempting. Assuming that Charles would come to Philadelphia to enlist seems extravagant--but the coincidence is remarkable otherwise. (See the Stoyle-Towle tree on Ancestry for more about Charles--but it does not mention any military service.)
