91st PA: Noah Mallen

Noah Mallen

Before the war

He was born in 1829/30 (5 (31 in 1861), 6 (31 in 1861), 9 [46 at death in 1875]). He was born in Staffordshire, England (5).

When he enlisted, he was living in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (6).

Description

When he enlisted, he was 5 feet 5-1/2 inches tall, and had a dark complexion, dark eyes, and dark hair (5).

During the war

He enlisted and was mustered into service at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on 10 September 1861 (1, 6). He was enlisted for three years, by Charles Brown (5, 6). He was mustered in as a private in company H (1, 6, 18, 19, 20, 21). He had gun number 61 (5).

On 6 January 1863, he and about five hundred other sick and wounded soldiers arrived in Philadelphia (17). Most had been wounded at the Battle of Fredericksburg (17). They were taken to the Chestnut Hill Hospital (17).

On 8 September 1863, Sinex reported that he was in Philadelphia and able to rejoin the regiment, and requested his return (2).

Because of wounds, he was transferred on 3 or 13 November 1863 to the Veterans' reserve corps (1 [3 Nov], 3, 4 [13 Nov], 5, 6 [13 Nov]). He was a private, in company H (18, 19, 20, 21).

After the war

On 8 April 1865, he applied successfully for a pension (7, 8).

Probably in fall 1866 and fall 1867, he had a saloon, at 1906 Amber Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (10, 11).

Probably in fall 1869 through fall 1873, he sold liquors, at 2249 Tulip Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (12, 13, 14, 15, 16).

On 11 May 1875, he died, at Philadelphia Hospital, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, of typhoid pneumonia (9). He was buried at the Alms House (9).

On 8 February 1876, his widow, Sarah Mallen, applied unsuccessfully for a pension (7, 8).
