Adopt a Civil War Veteran !

Slip into the past and visit the brave soldier's who fought for their belief during the Civil war that tore our nation and families apart. Listen to the tales of hardship, family sacrifice, bloodshed, miracles, and the valiant men coming home to their loved ones.

Be a Volunteer!


The Henderson County KyGenWeb is recruiting volunteers to select a HENDERSON COUNTY CIVIL WAR VETERAN and do some research on him and prepare an essay. The essay's content should tell a story that includes, Name, rank, Regiment, Company, Commanding officer, what campaigns or battles he participated in, where he joined, age of enlistment, Union or Confederate, or any other highlights you wish to include like pension data etc. Also include at the end how you're related to the veteran and your full name. If you are fortunate enough to have a photo of this veteran in uniform that would add a special touch. Please contact Tina Hall if you would like to volunteer.

This information is provided by the following volunteers in honor of their family members or a special someone. Please remember that they own the copyright to their prose. Ask them for permission to use their listing exactly as written, or put it in your own words in order to document that person in your files.

Born 9 September 1835 in Henderson county, Ky and died 20 February 1915, Henderson County, Ky. He married Amanda Pepper born 5 April 1850, New Philadelphia, Tuscarawas Co., Oh who died 22 Oct 1936, Henderson County, Ky. She was the daughter of Albert Reardon Pepper and Charlotte Johnston.

James Madison CHEANEY felt that slavery was a great wrong even tho his father and relatives owned slaves. When the war came in 1861, he had a deeply-held feeling tht war was wrong, but he believed in the Southern cause. Instead of enlisting in the Confederate Army, he decided to work as a spy and as a carrier of needed supplies like Quinine and othr drugs for the troops. He had several narrow escapes; once he was forced to hide under a counter in a store while being pursued. Finally he was caught and sent to Johnson's Island.

Failing to recruit the necessary number of men, Captain Cooper's company was merged into Colonel Shackelford's Twenty-fifth Kentucky Infantry. Upon the formation of the regiment, young John was made Commissary of Company "F", and then Orderly Sergeant of Company "D". The Twenty-fifth after the battle of Shiloh, was consolidated with the Seventeenth Kentucky, Colonel John H. McHenry commanding, and young Johnson was made Second Lieutenant of Company "E". About this time he was stricken by partial paralysis of the left side and was sent back to Kentucky. He was placed on detached duty of Park Barracks, Louisville, as Adjutant. He was frequently engaged on special duty in bearing messages and detective service. In August, 1862, finding his health still impaired, he tendered his resignation, and, for seven months, filled the position of mail agent on one or the other of the then Louisville and Henderson mail boats.

NATHANIEL A. KITCHELL, M. D. Starling's History of Henderson County, Kentucky, page 670 In April, 1860, he began the practice of his profession with Dr. Rufus Linthicum, of Henderson County, and continued with him to the fall of 1861, whom led by all his sympathies to side with the people of the South, he entered the Confederate army and went to war. He enlisted with Colonel Adam Rankin Johnson and was with that distinguished commander in most of his engagements with the enemy, notably the terrible battle near Owensboro. He was with Morgan in his Indiana and Ohio raid in the summer of 1863, and was captured in Ohio. After his capture, the Doctor was sent a prisoner to Fort Delaware, where he was confined until the seventeenth day of the following November, when he and other physicians of Morgan's command were sent to City Point, on James River, Virginia, and there exchanged for an equal number of Federal surgeons. Upon reaching Richmond, Dr. Kitchell was detailed by the Surgeon General to take charge of the Federal sick in Hospital No. 21. During the winter he availed himself of the opportunity offered, attended the Richmond Medical College, and was awarded a Confederate diploma. In March, 1864, he rejoined the remnant of his command, but was soon after taken sick, and, in May, his health being so much impaired, he returned to Kentucky and again commenced the practice of his profession at Robards Station, Henderson County.

MARRS, Paul Jones Capt. CSA
At the breaking out of the war Mr. Marrs sold his interest in the drug house of Cromwell & Marrs, and in the later part of 1861 enlisted as a private under Colonel Adam Johnson, Confederate Army. During his army life Captain Marrs was engaged in many skirmishes and several battles. On 1862 he with orders, was captured and sent to prison at Evansville; from Evansville he was sent to Camp, Morton, Indiana, where he remained for one year, from thence he was sent to Johnson's Island, and a short time thereafter to Fortress Monroe, where, in 1863, he was exchanged and returned to his command. At the close of the war he returned to Henderson, surrendered himself to Captain Platter, then in command to the post, took the oath, and from that day to this has remained loyal to the Government, and proven one of the most successful of business men.

MERRITT, Montgomery - C S A
HON. MONTGOMERY MERRITT

In May 1861, under the huzzas of the South for separation, his hot young blood was kindled into a flame, and, without regard for his tender age, enlisted in the First Kentucky Infantry, Confederate service, for one year. At that time he was only sixteen years of age. He was engaged in many minor contests, and, in the fall of 1861, was discharged from the service on account of physicaol disability. He returned to his home and remained until the fall of Fort Donnelson, when he rejoined the army, this time with General John H. Morgan. He accompanied Morgan in all of his raids, and, in a sanguinary engagement at Russellville, was shot by a Minie ball in the shoulders. He was with Morgan on his Indiana and Ohio raid and was captured at Buffington's Island, 21 July 1863. He was sent a prisoner to Camp Douglas, Chicago, and from there, in February, 1865, on to Richmond, Virginia, for exchange. He surrendered at the disbandment in 1865.
