91st PA: Charles W Clime (or Cline)

Charles W Clime (or Cline)

Note

According to Bates (1) and the Pennsylvania Archives card (5), he was wounded before he enlisted! I don't know which date is wrong.

Before the war

He was born in 1842/43 (4 (21 in 1864), 5 (21 in 1864), 6 (21 in 1864), 10 [26 at death in 1870]). He was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (4, 5, 6) or Montgomery County, Pennsylvania (10).

When he enlisted, he was a wire worker, and was living in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (4, 5, 6).

Description

When he enlisted, he was 5 feet 5-1/2 inches tall, and had a light complexion, blue eyes, and dark hair (4, 5 [5'5-1/4", light complexion, blue eyes, brown hair], 6 [light complexion, light eyes, light hair]).

During the war

He enlisted and was mustered into service on 9 September 1864 (1, 4, 5, 6, 7). He was enlisted for one year, at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, by Captain Stretch (4, 5, 6). He was mustered at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in by Captain Stretch (4, 5). He was a private in company D (1, 11, 12).

He was wounded on 12 May 1864 at Spottsylvania Court House, Virginia (1, 5). (This is obviously problematic, given the date he mustered in.)

He was discharged by general order 26, War Department, in the field near Washington DC, on 30 May 1865 or 2 June 1865 (1 [30 May], 2 [2 Jun], 3 [no date], 5 [30 May]). He was a private, in company D (11, 12).

After the war

On 19 August 1870, he successfully applied for a pension (8, 9).

He died, of consumption of lungs, on 26 October 1870, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (10). He was then a stairbuilder, and was married (10). He was probably living at, or died at, 1704 Edwin Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (10). He was buried on 28 October 1870 at Odd Fellows' Cemetery, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (10).

On 15 March 1871, his widow, E Clime, successfully applied for a pension (8, 9).
