REPORT.



The task of compiling a complete and accurate account of the
Soldiers of Danvers, is an impossible one, but careful and effective
work has been attempted by your committee in the hope that their
report will be received as a fair testimonial of their services, and
as a lasting memorial to the brave men who have claimed Danvers
as their home.

That two years should be needed to prepare a report such as
this is, is not to be wondered at, when it is considered that nearly
if not quite one thousand letters of varying character have been
mailed, that but a very small percentage of the persons addressed
have paid any attention to the questions of the committee, and,
that in the records of the State and National Departments exist er-
rors innumerable.

The records of the town have been carefully consulted for in-
formation leading to any suggestions of error on the records of the
adjutant-general's department* at the State House, and whenever
such have been found, from any source, that department has will-
ingly and promptly requested information from Washington, which
has as promptly been supplied. By these means many errors and
omissions have been corrected at both those offices. That mistakes
should have occurred was unavoidable. It is strange that they
were not found in greater number. That there are numerous in-
stances in the report we make to you is probable. Cases will be
found where men were credited to towns entirely without their
knowledge, and so erroneous is the record of bounties that the com-
mittee have omitted that item entirely in the printed report, but
the amounts can be examined by any proper person, in the origi-
nal manuscript.



*Thanks are especially due to Mr. John Baker of that department whose ac-
quaintance with the various records in his charge is remarkahle.



VI



The greater part of the expense contracted by your committee is,
of course, accounted for by this report, and we pride ourselves that
it has been so slight, considering the variety, remoteness and mis-
cellaneous character of the records consulted.

The committee has held twelve regular meetings at each of which
except upon rare occasions, all of the members have been present.
Several informal gatherings of the committee have been held, and
throughout our existence as a committee the utmost harmony and
combined effort has prevailed. The greater part of the labor of pre-
paring the record has fallen upon the chairman, who from his profes-
sion and knowledge of the sources of information was selected to
collect and arrange the material, which, however, has been carefully
inspected in detail by the several members of the committee.

It was thought best to add as an appendix some account of the
soldiers of Dan vers in other than our late war*, and we have en-
deavored to present a record of our men in the Indian and French
wars, the Revolution, the War of 1812, Mexican war, and some
account of our early and present militia organizations.

A feature of this report is the preservation of the family records
of our soldiers. Here we may have made some errors and crave
your indulgence, but that in the generations to come, the same
honor and veneration will be paid to the men of 1861 as is now
paid to the heroes of 1775 is undoubted, and our descendants and
successors will thank us for placing on record some account, how-
ever fragmentary, of the families and lives of the soldiers.

It is earnestly hoped that every person having knowledge of any



The number of enlistments in the Union Army was 666, of whom 552 were
native born. The places of nativity of the men as far as can lie ascertained are as
follows: Danvers, 125, of whom four were of Irish parentage; other towns in
Essex, lis, of whom one was of Irish parentage; other places in Massachusetts,
39, of whom three were of German parentage ; New Hampshire, 43; Maine, 45;
United States, 202, of whom eightwere negroes, and thirty-live (if Irish parent-
age (probably many in this division are Danvers born); Canada, 30, of whom
twenty-seven came from the Maritime provinces: England, 15; Scotland, 13;
Ireland, 17; Germany '.'.

There were at least thirty-seven Danvers men in the naval service, and forty-
nine additional records are appended, of men who have lived or died in
Danvers. Thus the records of 796 separate individuals, who served in the Rebel-
lion are printed.

We have gathered information relating to 139 French war soldiers in addi-
tion to the names given in the historical sketch; and some 300 Revolutionary
sol. Hers in addition to an equal number of Lexington Alarm men. Mention will
also be found of others who were probably in the service for longer or shorter
periods.

< >ver 1800 names of soldiers or sailors born or resident at some period in
Danvers are printed in this report.



REPORT. VII

soldier born in or credited to Danvers will inspect this report,
will note the various records, and send to your committee, or to
the town clerk, all corrections and omissions, however gross or
slight, that, as nearly as possible, a correct record may in time be
obtained by the town.

We cordially extend to all of the many persons who have con-
tributed aid and information, our grateful acknowledgments; to
the great interest exhibited by a few, is, indeed, due the accom-
plishment of our task.

Danvers has had in the past a great history and has given birth
to a race of warriors. She has had no occasion to be ashamed of
her men ; an intensely military and patriotic spirit has always in-
' rluenced her citizens, as the record will show. It behooves us to
place upon record both in print, and on stone and brass, memorials
to those of her citizens who have fought for and guarded the na-
tion.

Respectfully submitted,

Eben Putnam,
Walter S. Lovejoy,
John W. Porter,
Malcolm Sillars,
Andrew Nichols.
