Civil War

The American Civil (1861-1865) War, widely known in the United States as simply the "Civil War" as well as other sectional names, was a civil war fought from 1861 to 1865 to determine the survival of the Union or independence for the Confederacy. There were 34 states in January 1861 when seven Southern slave states individually declared their secession from the United States and formed the Confederate States of America.

The Confederacy, often simply called the South, grew to include eleven states, and although they claimed thirteen states and additional western territories, the Confederacy was never diplomatically recognized by a foreign country. The states that remained loyal and did not declare secession were known as the Union or the North.

The war had its origin in the fractious issue of slavery, especially the extension of slavery into the western territories. After four years of combat, which left over 600,000 Union and Confederate soldiers dead and destroyed much of the South's infrastructure, the Confederacy collapsed and slavery was abolished. Then began the Reconstruction and the processes of restoring national unity and guaranteeing civil rights to the freed slaves.

One of the lesser-known facts of the Civil War was that many Conferate states had organized groups who fought for the North. These people were more interested in preserving the union of all the United States than they were in seceeding. One of these groups was the 1st Alabama Cavalry Regiment. It was a cavalry regiment recruited from Southern Unionists that served in the Union Army. It was the only all-white Union regiment from Alabama. Of the 2,678 white Alabamians who enlisted in the Union Army, 2,066 served in the 1st Alabama Cavalry. Fernando (Frank) Cortez Burdick (I1171) was one of the union officers who led the regiment.

The U.S. National Park Service (NPS) has produced a database of people who were involved in the war. It includes not just the well-known names of officers and politicians, but individual soldiers, sailors and civilians. The database includes 585 soldiers with the last name Burdick.

  • (cont) He applied for a pension (#463519) on October 30, 1862, based on a disability. According to his pension papers 'he was greatly disabled and was compelled to resign his position as Captain.' His widow, Nancy Margaret Feltman Burdick, and the older children were away from home when he died. She applied for a widow's pension (#292479) on September 26, 1888 which was denied on the grounds that the soldier's death was not the result of military service. The claim was referred for special examination, and several depositions were taken and affidavits obtained.
  • (cont) In April of 1927, Probate Judge John B. Weaver wrote to the U.S. Pension Department on behalf of his 'door neighbor' Nancy M. Burdick to inquire if she was not entitled to more than $30.00 per month in pension benefits. A June 13, 1927 response from Winfield Scott indicted she would be entitled to no such increase as she was not the wife of soldier during his period of service.
  • (cont) Fernando 'Frank' Cortez Burdick was left behind in the surgeon's tent after having contracted the disabling condition. He was treated by the post surgeon in his tent for 27 (or 37) days, being unable to leave it. Between his illness and apparent paperwork confusion of mustering out of the Illinois regiment to accept a promotion into the First Alabama Cavalry, he somehow wound up being reported 'deserted' August 27, 1862, though another roll reports him left sick in Tuscumbia, Alabama on August 27, 1862. A War Department communication dated May 11, 1888 reports 'The charges of desertion of August 27, 1862, and on Regtl return for December, 1862, against this man are removed as erroneous.'
  • (cont) He received his discharge December 23, 1865 and remained in Alabama which began the Burdick family there. He was a clerk, teacher, county clerk, and probate judge of Winston County; and he assisted in re-establishing postal service in northwest Alabama. See also, petition to Brig. Gen. Wm. Smith on behalf of Fernando 'Frank' Cortez Burdick to be appointed Register of Votes, by loyal and true Union Men formerly of the 1st Alabama Cavalry.
  • (cont) Among his friends were the Feltman brothers from Walker County in Alabama. When he obtained his army discharge in 1865 he remained with his Feltman friends and married Nancy Margaret Feltman and they made their home in Winston County, Alabama.

Mustered out 1863 SEP 13 at U.S. Hospital New Orleans, LA due to death from Dysentery. This was my Great Uncle who died at the age of 19 during the Civil War. All records show that he was buried in New Orleans. There is a monument in Hillcrest Cemetery in DeRuyter, NY, but he is not buried there. He died at the US hospital at what was called The Jackson Barracks in New Orleans. It appears that those buried there were moved to Chalmette National Cemetery after Hurricaine Katrina in 2005 he is not located there. The National Archives and Records Administraion (NARA) has not been able to not come up with anything other than the DeRuyter site.

He was mustered in 14 August 1862. From there his service kind of disappears. He shows back up at the Battles of Port Hudson. He is then taken to the US Hospital at the Jackson Barracks suffering from 'Morbid with Dysentery about three days and died at New Orleans LA Sept 13 1863'. The form goes on to say that he is buried in New Orleans, LA. As to where in New Orleans, that is still a mystery. I know there was a cemetery at Fort Jackson that was badly flooded during Katrina and the bodies were moved to Chalmett National Cemetery but their records do not show him there. There are quite a few Unknowns burdied there from the Jackson Barracks and it is possible he is amoung those. Maybe someday they will find him., but at least I now know he is in New Orleans.

Stennett Clarke Stillman (I1001229) (23 JUL 1835 - 1914)
  • res. Scott, N. Y.
  • He served in the Civil War
  • The Sabbath Vol 78, No 8, p 255, Feb. 22, 1915: Stennett C. Stillman was born in Homer, N. Y., July 23, 1835, and died in St. Luke's Hospital, Utica, N. Y., January 22, 1915, aged 79 years, 6 months, and 29 days. In early life, while attending the DeRuyter Institute, he made a profession and joined the Seventh Day Baptist church of that place. In May of 1860, he was married to Theresa Clarke, and to them were born three children. The oldest, a daughter, died in California in her early womanhood; while two sons, Alfred, of Alfred, N. Y., and Paul, of Brooklyn, survive him. Mrs. Stillman passed away in 1902 and he was married again, in 1904, to Mrs. Elizabeth Maxson, who with his two sons, their wives, and his only living brother, Stewart Stillman, of Rochester, N. Y., were with him, to comfort and sustain him in the last trying hours.
  • (cont) Brother Stillman, while serving his country, did not forget his service to his God, as may be seen from his diary kept during his service. Let us note two records: 'Sabbath, May 29, 1865. - strolled out through field and wood to empty fort, to commune with God, in its hidden recesses . . . June 10, 1865, - Take my letter to mail for wife. Go to woods to read and pray. Find comfort in casting my care on God.'
  • (cont) Brother Stillman, in a letter to his wife, dated June 7, 1865, tells of being urged to take a position in the U. S. Treasury, which he would not accept because it would require work on the Sabbath, choosing $16 and field service, with obedience to conscience and God, rather than $100 and disobedience; and for the same reason he refused office at the hands of a license party, choosing to suffer (shame and contempt) with the people of God, rather than enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season. Would that the mantle of Brother Stillman's conscientious rectitude might fall on many Seventh Day Baptists and especially the young. Truly we can say, a good man has fallen, and many mourn the loss.

Nathan Burdick (I10111004) (9 SEP 1827 - 1912)
  • Homer Burdick note: Nathan was my g-grandfather, and I have my family tree traced back to him, but I have been unsuccessful in finding records of his father, Nathaniel. Nathaniel must have died somewhere between 1840 and 1850, as his daughter, Susan, was 10 years old in 1850, but Nathaniel was not listed in the 1850 census.
  • Homer Burdick note: My family history starts with Nathan Burdick, my g-grandfather, dating back to a census of 1850. I sent an outline of my work to distant cousins, who are also descendants of Nathan (their grandparents were siblings of my grandfather, who was the eldest son of Nathan) We became e mail friends and discovered we were searching for the same ancestor. My cousins, as well as I, were told by our parents that our gg-grandfather was married to an Indian princess (my Dad may have embellished the story), which would make me 1/16th Native American. If I could confirm that, in New York State, I would not be charged sales tax. and hence the beginning my search.
  • (cont) Another cousin mentioned our gg-grandfather's name was Nathaniel, and , according to the mentioned 1850 census, his wife could have been named Philena. Still another cousin had the story that Nathaniel's wife died in childbirth on the ship coming to America, that he took an Indian maiden as his second wife, and that Nathaniel was Scottish-Irish. I estimate that Nathaniel would have been born circa 1800, that he would have been married circa 1820-1825, as his son, Nathan was born 1827. He listed as 26 years old in 1850, and Philena (his mother) is listed as 46 years old, but there is no reference to Nathaniel.
  • 1850 census records list a Nathan Burdick, age 26, Joshua, age 22, Susan, age 10, and Philena, age 47 in Frewsburg, NY.
  • Homer Burdick email, 9/29/2018: Nathan Burdick and James Baskin fought in the Civil War at Gettysburg. Nathan had a son Robert, and James had a daughter Gertrude. Robert married Gertrude, and they had a son, Robert Jr. (I10111009), my father. Both of these Civil War Veterans, Nathan and James, are my great grandfathers. Both were in the 83rd Pennsylvania Infantry, and were in the skirmish at Little Roundtop. James was killed in a later battle. Nathan was wounded but returned to duty. He drew an army pension and died 1912 in Forest County, PA.

  • In 1850 Albert's wife is dead and all his children are living with a relative Abby Atwood.
  • In 1860 Albert is living in Providence RI. On the census his wife's name is given as Hannah. This is likely a Census takers mistake. In 1875 Albert and Maria are living in Providence RI.
  • On the 1870 census Albert is found living in a boarding house in Providence, without a wife. It is assumed his wife Mary had died by then. On the 1880 census Albert is found living with a wife named MARIA. This leads to the assumption that Albert was married twice. The Maria who was Albert's second wife was the wife of his brother Charles who died young.

Sanford Langworthy (I11371260) (15 SEP 1830 - 4 MAY 1896)
  • Hal Langworthy note: The dates for Sanford's birth and death are are taken from his gravestone, which says he was born Sept 15, 1830, and died May 4, 1896. In her application for a widow's pension, Sanford's wife Elizabeth gives the same date of death, so she was probably the source for both records.
  • (cont) Other sources, like censuses and pension applications, give birth dates a year or two earlier or later.
  • (cont) There is one source, though, that has significantly different dates: The 1896 death register for Newaygo County says he died April 30, 1896, aged 76 years, 3 months and 5 days, which works out to Jan 26, 1820, and it says that his parents were John and Jane Langworthy. No such couple is known that could possibly have been his parents. This register is a compilation done in each county of the deaths which had occurred in the previous year. My guess is that in this case, some creativity was used to fill in the blanks....
  • (cont) There is no proof that Sanford was the son of Ira (ca1799), but there is a male of the right age in Ira's household in the 1840 census, and the 1850 census shows that one of Ira's sons (Job) was living in Sanford's household. Also, it's reasonable that Ira would name a son after his father, Sanford, and that Sanford would in turn name his first son after his father Ira.
  • (cont) Sanford, though a resident of West Monroe, Oswego Co., NY, enlisted in the Civil War at Cavendish, Vermont. He served in the Second US Sharpshooters, but was wounded in the hand at Spotsylvania, resulting in a permanent disability. He then served in the 4th Vermont Regiment until July 1865.
