tive campaign of his regiment ought to have resulted in fame
for the colonel.
As we know he accompanied the regiment only to Belle Plain,
and some recall seeing him and the lieutenant colonel going
down to the boat which bore them to Washington. It was our
last view of the graceful, pleasing officer, at least in regimentals.
He returned to Lyons and to the practice of his profession, and
very likely his leadership of the Wayne county bar was never
seriously disputed. Later he went to Rochester, or at any rate
opened an office there, and for a number of years was as suc-
cessful as he had been in his Lyons practice.
As age crept upon him he felt its weight, and giving up his
practice both in Rochester and Lyons, he retired completely
from his old associations, spending the later years of his life in
Delaware, dying finally March 19, 1897, in a Philadelphia hos-
pital. His age was given as seventy-six years, which would
practically agree with that stated in the muster-in roll of 1862,
where he was down as forty years old.
Colonel Welling was an exceedingly well read man, and pos-
sessed a large and carefully studied library. As a member of
the social circle, few men were more popular. He had a bound-
less source of wit and anecdote, making him the life of the
place in which he might find himself. His wife and daughter
who accompanied him to the camp near Fort Simmons won the
tliorough respect of all. The latter, now Mrs. Lane, resides with
her widowed mother in Lyons.

H. H. Wheeler, was lonfi an honorod citizen. He had entered
Anilierst ('oliege before his enlistment in Company A, and
when the war was over, he came back and finished the course
in the class of 1S68. Afterwards he taught school in Vermont
and Massachusetts, was in Coluiubia Law School for a time,
and studied law with Gov. P. T. Washburn and Judge James
Barrett at Woodstock, Vt. Again he taught school^ was in
business, was clerk in Superior Court, Chicago, and settled in
Lincoln, Neb., 1876.
There he has been assistant attorney general; department re-
porter; clerk of Supreme Court, and state librarian. He was
assistant to the attorney general and had charge of the Land
Department of Idaho in 1890-"93. He is the author of the Com-
piled Statutes of Nebraska, 1881 to 1899. He has seen a deal
of variety in life, but, apparently, is only a little older grown
from the very young man who was by the writer's side at
In 1885 he was married to Miss Grace, daughter of Chief
Justice O. P. Mason, and is the proud father of two sons and a
John W. Whitbeck. â€” Every one in Company A remembers
the Whitbeck boys. After the war, George wandered across
the sea and became a soldier in the British army. Dr. John W.
is a prosperous dentist in Watkins, N. Y., looking almost as
youthful a.< in the days of Virginia tramping. Evidently life
does not wear upon him as it does on some of his old associates.
Anson S. Wood. â€” "Colonel" Wood, one of the best known
figures in the county if not in the state, was born in Camillus,
Onondaga county, Oct. 2. 1834. His father, Alvin, was of Eng-
lish descent, while the family of his mother, Fanny Wood-
worth, was from Xew England. In the childhood of Colonel
Wood, the family removed to Butler, in whose schools and in
the Red Creek Academy his early education was had.
He began the study of law in Syracuse in 18.53; later he was
in the offices of C. D. Lawton and Judge L. S. Ketchum of
Clyde. During his law studies he taught school one winter, and
in the fall uf 1855 he attended the Albany Law School; in De-
cember of the same year he was admitted to the bar. Residing
in South Butler, he was elected, early in 1850. town superin-
tendent of schools. In July of that year he removed to Lyons,
where he formed a law partnership with the Hon. William
450 NINTH NEW YORK HEAVY ARTILLERY.
Clark, with whom and the Hon. DeWitt Parshall he practiced
law till September, 1862, also serving as town clerk in 1858
When the 138th Regiment was projected, he was one of the
early volunteers and was commissioned 1st lieutenant of Com-
pany D. Later he served as adjutant, and in May, 1863, he was
promoted to the captaincy of Company M, and was on detached
service in Elmira in connection with the draft rendezvous there :
for a time he was assistant adjutant general of the post. In
May, 1864, at his own request, he was returned to his command
and was with the regiment throughout the campaign upon
which it was then about entering.
In October he served on the staff of General J. B. Ricketts,
commanding the 3d Division, 6th Corps, and after the general's
severe wounding at Cedar Creek, Captain Wood continued on
the staff of General Truman Seymour as judge advocate, Sey-
mour having succeeded Ricketts. Promoted major, he returned
to the regiment and partook of its vicissitudes till after the
surrender. Then considering the war over, he resigned his com-
mission in May, 186.5, with the brevet rank of lieutenant colonel.
Having purchased a farm in Butler, he immediately became
prominent in local affairs, and in 1866 served the township as
supervisor; the following year he was assistant assessor of inter-
nal revenue,and continued to hold the positiim till the fall of '69,
when he resigned to accept the nomination for Assemblyman
in one of the Wayne county districts. He was elected, and the
following year he was sent again. In the mean time he had
resumed the practice of law, locating in the village of Wolcott.
In January, 1872, G. Hilton Scribner, secretary of state in
Albany, made Colonel Wood his assistant or deputy, and he con-
tinued to hold this place for two years. Then with General
Joseph B. Carr, he served in the same capacity six years from
1879. In 1883 he was one of the secretaries of the Republican
State Committee. In 1885 he was unanimously nominated sec-
retary of state, but with all the names on the Republican ticket
Then followed a single year in Albany, after which he re-
sumed his law practice in Wolcott, having his residence on
Wood's Island in Port Bay. At present he is associated in his
profession with the Hon. George S. Horton. At all times Col-
onel Wood has been a prominent man in local affairs. He has

been justice of the peace, trustee of the Wolcott Union School,
president of the village and supervisor of Huron. He has many
times been a delegate to Republican state conventions, and as
a speaker in political campaigns he has few rivals in popu-
larity. His old comrades-in-arms believe that the future has
yet many honors in store for him.
He was a prime mover in the formation of the G. A. R. Post
in Wolcott, of which he has repeatedly been commander, and he
has been a member of the New York Department staff. In 1898
he received the honor of election to the command of the depart-
ment, and for the ensuing year went up and down the Empire
State looking after the interests of this great organization, re-
flecting credit upon himself and the regiment that had sup-
ported him so loyally. For a number of years he has been at
the head of the Wayne County Veteran Association, which
holds an annual meeting in the month of August at Bonnicastle
on the eastern side of Great Sodus bay, and he has succeeded
in giving to the same a reputation which goes far beyond the
confines of the county. His extensive acquaintance throughout
the state has enabled him to present a large array of talent
from year to year, which the dwellers in this lakeside county
William Wood. â€” "Major"' Wood, as he is best known in regi-
mental circles, was born in that part of the town of Butler
where the people go to Westbury for post office favors. His
father was Horatio N. Wood, long one of the most prominent
and respected farmers in the town. He sent the future major,
who was born Aug. 1, 1830, to Union College at Schenectady,
where he was graduated in 1856 along with the famous writer^
Fitz Hugh Ludlow, the late Maine Congressman Seth L. Milli-
ken, and many others who in the intervening years have
The next year he was graduated from the Albany Law School,
and for two years practiced law with the Hon. Jacob E. Decker,
who in 1858, '59 and '60 was district attorney. But the genera-
tions of soil-tillers behind him drew the lawyer back to the
paternal acres, and there the war found him. No man was more
efficient in the raising of Company G, and he was naturally its
first captain, a position that he worthily filled till he was called
to a higher grade. As major, commanding one of the battal-
ions of the Ninth, be was ever conspicuous for his attention

to duty and for meritorious services. He came home with a
brevet lieutenant colonelcy; indeed Goveruor Feuton, Dec. 27,
1804, commissioned him as lieutenant colonel, but he was never
Since those troublous times he has dwelt quietly on the farm,
always finding time to attend the regular Ninth reunions and to
rear his family of five children. In 1886 his fellow citizens
thought so well of him that they sent him to Albany to repre-
sent eastern Wayne in the Assembly.
To-day, in a green old age he looks back over times of peril
and forward to a happy reunion with the many who have pre-
ceded him to fame's eternal camping ground. For ages, history
has sung the praises of Cincinnatus; America's story has that
worthy multiplied by thousands, and in that proud number we
include the name of our Butler farmer and lieutenant colonel.
"It is an old belief,
That on some solemn shore
Beyond the sphere of grief,
Dear friends shall meet once more.
"Beyond the sphere of time
And sin and fate's control,
Serene in changeless prime
Of body and of soul.
"That creed I fain would keep;
That faith I'll not forego.
Eternal be the sleep,
If not to waken so."
Roster of the Ni.nth New York Heavy Artillery.
The basis of the data given is the material, preserved in the
office of the adjutant general in Albany, described as trans-
cripts of rolls now in the custody of the War Department,
Washington. To insure accuracy, every name should have been
compared with the latter collection, but this privilege, though
earnestly sought, was unqualifiedly denied. Each company roll,
however, has been submitted to the inspection of one or more
members of the same; in this way numerous corrections have
been made; notwithstanding this, they must still abound in
errors. The sole comment in sending out the compilation is
that under the circumstances it is the very best jiossible.
In the record of transferrals to the 2d N. Y. H. A. it is
thought unnecessary to name the company to which transferral
is made, it being remembered that Company I of the 2d was
made up of men from I, B and C of the Ninth; K of those of K,
F, E and H; L took the "left overs" of L, A and G, in part,
while M had M. D and the remainder of G.
The original K^srh N. Y. Infantry, with the exception of Com-
pany B and the field and staff, was mustered into the U. S.
service Sept. 8, 1862. The exceptions, as above, were mustered
in September 9.
In taking data for officers, read the date following promotion
as that of Muster-in; the next, or that of rank, explains itself.
For privates and non-commissioned officers the name is fol-
lowed by age; next date of enlistment and town to which en-
listment is ascribed; then date of Muster-in and period if for
less than three years (unless otherwise stated the soldier is
mustered in as private); next, any incident in service, as
wounded, taken jirisoner, or promotion; finally date and manner
of leaving service, thus:

This company owed its orifjin largely to the force aud energy
of its first captain. James W. Snyder, ably supported by Lieu-
tenants Hyde and Campbell. August titli, 1862, a large meeting
of citizens was held in front of the Red Creek Hotel, presided
over by Abel Lyon, and the Hon. T. M. Pomeroy of Auburn
spoke to nearly 2
captain and later commander of the regiment, who made an
impassioned address. Nearly half the company was raised
there and then. Over $5,000 was subscribed to help on the
bounty fund, the ladies contributing liberally. The majority
of the men came from that part of the town of Wolcott known
as Red Creek. Almost all the others came from Huron and
Butler, to which towns Lieutenants Hyde and Campbell, re-
spectively, belonged. Before the company left for the seat of
war. admiring fellow citizens gave to Captain Snyder a beau-
tiful sword in testimony of their regard and appreciation.
