Ancestor Bios A-F

The veteran ancestors of our Charter Members are in red.

All Ancestor Bios were created using documents from the individual Tent members' files. The primary documents used were the DUVCW applications, but additional information came from the Civil War veteran's Pension file or Military Records that were found in the Tent member's file, unless otherwise stated. If you would like more information about any of our ancestors, please contact, Peggy Munson, our Senior Vice President and Registrar.

John Baptist Clunk 

John Baptist Clunk was one of the 15 children born to Anthony Clunk & Anna Elizabeth Elder of Adams Co, PA.  The Clunk family moved from PA about 1825 to Columbiana Co., OH, based on the birth locations of John’s siblings.

About 1846 in OH he married Julianna Kibler, d/o Adam Kibler & Catharine Comer from Mt Calvary Shenadoah, VA.  Her family moved from VA to Carroll Co., OH during the 1830’s. 

John & Julianna had 7 children, the oldest being James (my 2nd Civil War Veteran - see above).

On May 12, 1864 John signed up for the OH National Guard. This group became Co. K of the 143rd Regiment of the OH Infantry.  The group was organized for 100 day’s service under Col. Wm. H. Vodrey, it at once moved to Washington City.  The Regiment performed garrison duty until June, when it was placed in the trenches at City Point and afterwards Fort Pocahontas.  It was relieved the last of August and returned to OH for muster out on Sept. 12, 1864.

Records indicate that August 3 -7, 1864 John was in the Fort Hospital at Wilson’s Wharf, VA with a Bilious disease & Malaria.

August 18, 1864 he was in Post Hospital, Fort Pocahontas, VA with constipation & Malaria.

A story taken from his pension files reads as followsOn the march between Washington City and Ft. Slocum, he came down with Rheumatism and was unable to carry his gun or knapsack.  He could not walk.  His Major gave up his horse and took him to the hospital at Ft. Pocahontas where he remained until his discharge.  He served as a hospital nurse for a short time, but was unable to rejoin his regiment.  He mustered out Sept. 13, 1864.  He attributes rheumatism to rain at Camp Chase in Columbus, where the water was inside of the tents and the soldiers were required to sleep on the wet ground.

His military pension was granted in 1887 because of his rheumatism.

On a trip to OH approximately 10 years ago, Gene & I visited a rural cemetery and located the grave of Julianna Kibler Clunk.  The only thing to indicate that John was buried there was a metal flag maker, but the marker was for WWII, which we knew was incorrect.

Julianna had passed away in 1884, and a year later John married a widow Elizabeth Swogger Degarmo Haines.  When John died in 1901, Elizabeth collected his civil war pension until her death in 1918, but she is buried next to her first husband, Mr. Degarmo.  Pension records indicate she was almost penniless, thus the reason for no tombstone for John Clunk.

With the help of the Lisbon City Cemetery officials, I was able to contact the Veterans Administration and they prepared a marker for John Clunk, which the son of the Lisbon City Cemetery administrator placed for me.  He provided photos of the plaque, so now the graves of both of my 3rd Great Grandparents are marked.
