122 Regiment, N.Y.V.

122 Regiment, N.Y.V.

Submitted by Kathy Crowell September 25, 1998.

The following lists of surviving members (as of 1888) of the 122nd Regiment appeared weekly from February 2, 1888-April 5, 1888 in the Veteran's Column of Fayetteville's "Weekly Recorder" newspaper.  Serious coverage of Civil War veteran news began in 1888, under editor Maj. Andrew Wilkin, a former member of the122nd Regt., and was continued into 1892 under  Howard Beauchamp.

Several names are probably not  correctly spelled, while in other cases, the microfilm copy was too light to read.  If anyone has corrections, please feel free to e-mail me at: [email protected]


February 2, 1888

Where Are They?  What Are They Doing?

Hereafter one column of the RECORDER will be reserved for the veterans of the 122d Regiment N.Y. Vols. and we hope through the assistance of the members of that regiment to make it useful and entertaining.  It will enable us to keep track of each other though widely separated, and when we need each other's assistance in any way a letter to the RECORDER will surely bring a prompt response.  The Editor was one of the "boys" and has undertaken this enterprise in the belief that it will be a source of pleasure not only to himself but a benefit to all concerned.

We publish below a list so far as we can obtain the data, of the surviving members of the Field and Staff of the 122d N.Y. Vols. and also of Company A with their present post office address where known.  If comrades in reading the list find any errors in the address they will please notify us at once, giving the correct address.

To shine untarnished on the roll of fame,
And add new luster to the historic page."

A, 122 N.Y.V., is now a resident of Arcadia, Nebraska.  He is numbered among the prominent and well-to-do stockmen of that vicinity and has a large ranch near the town.  He is a member of T. T.

Cap. Cornell Crysler, Independence, Mo.
Maj. Davis Cossitt, Onondaga, N.Y. (In a 7/31/1890 issue, a letter from George Amidon reports Davis Cossitt as a prosperous farmer too well known to need further mention.  See also "Bios").
Edward P. Luther, Onondaga, N.Y. (corrected 3/8/1888 to:  Maj. E. P. Luther of "D" Co. was taken with a severe stroke of paralysis on Tuesday last while trading at a store in Syracuse, and was taken to the residence of his niece, Mrs. Frank Harris of 11 Johnson St., Syracuse.  His left side is paralyzed and much of the time he lies in an unconscious state.  He received five wounds at the battle of the Wilderness and while lying on the field was taken prisoner by the rebels.  The injuries received at this time and poor care while in the hands of the rebels undermined a naturally strong constitution and his present illness is therefore all the more serious.  It is doubtful if he ever recovers.  His faithful wife who has tenderly cared for and watched over him since he came home from the army was taken from him by death last summer, and he has now no near relatives living.  His old comrades will do what they can to make smooth his pathway to the grave which cannot be far distant; corrected on 3/15/1888 to:  "Died at the home of his niece, Mrs. Frank L. Harris, in Syracuse, on Wednesday the 7th inst., Edward P. Luther, late Capt. of Co. "D" 122 N.Y. Vols.  In the same issue is this obituary:  Major Edward P. Luther.  On Saturday last, we gazed for the last time on the features of our old friend and comrade, Edward P. Luther.  His constitution, weakened by wounds and exposure while in the field, could not throw off the fatal disease which prostrated him, and on Wednesday last he died.  His funeral was attended by many of his old comrades-in-arms who carried him to his last resting place beside the body of his wife, in the cemetery at Onondaga Hill.  No braver man ever wore the blue, and no more faithful and steadfast friend ever shared his ration with a comrade, than Edward P. Luther.  Time obscures his faults, if he had any, and death brings out in bright relief the many noble qualities of the man.  Peace to his ashes.".)
George Amidon, Onondaga, N.Y. (see "Bios")
Oscar Adams, Onondaga, N.Y. (In the 7/31/1890 issue, a letter from George Amidon notes that Oscar Adams resides at Onondaga Hill, and is as genial and cheerful as of old.)

In the  2/23/1888 issue is a correction that mentions William B. Cardell (not Carroll) Kansas City, Missouri.  Maj. J. H. Davis writes:  Wm. B. Cardell -- you have it "Carroll"--is a "rustler"--a drummer for a big wholesale tobacco house, or was a year or two ago.  His P.O. is Kansas City, Mo.--or was when I saw him.  He came here and we had a nice visit.  He tells some pretty tough yarns.  I think he was a non-combatant most of the time, belonged to the hospital corps, or else got detailed on court martial or some other soft place.  He laughs over it now."
