a. Ezra Loyd E.^, b. May 4, 1874; m. Genella Maud Hartz-
ell, Oct. 22, 1899.

Ezra L. E. in 1898 served nearly seven months in the Spanish-
American war as a private of Co. M, 8th Reg't of Ohio V. I. He
wisely kept a daily journal, a thing too often neglected by men at

arms in Uncle Sam's service, and from his carefully kept record
we make up the following account of his army life — regretting
that limited space obliges us to take no notice of many jottings of
interest. Though he escaped the test of death-dealing battle with
the enemy, he nevertheless experienced nearly all the trying
ordeals incident to active army life. For a brief period he at first
seemed to think he was having a "picnic." While at Camp Alger,
near Washington, D. C, Company M was part of the detail to do
guard duty at Dunn Loring, the supply station of the camp. His
turn here for duty only came every eighth day, and all the rest of
the time he enjoyed making pedestrian excursions throughout the
neighborhood-, and to the city, visiting all the government institu-
tions, and acquiring all the knowledge available. Among the
many notes of interest in his diary we may cite the following as an
example: "June 4th. Visited the Capitol building. Vvhile
passing through one of the lobbies several of us met the Hon.
Thomas B. Reed. He immediately straightened up like a regu-
lar, came to attention, saluted us and said, "How are you, boys?
Where are you from?" When we said Ohio he remarked, "That
is a good state, and only good boys come from that state." Per-
haps he thought different when he learned that some Ohio boys
scratched their names and regiment on the bronze doors of the
Capitol. I am glad that no boys of the 8th did this mean thing.
The guilty ones were arrested, but President McKinley inter-
ceded for them, and they escaped being severely punished. It is
safe to say that they will never be caught at such a vandalic act
again."

But this agreeable way of soldiering soon ceased, and the ser-
vice became more serious and exacting. July 5th his command
left for New York, and on the 6th the boys marched with their kits
aboard the great flying cruiser St. Paul and at once started for the
island of Cuba. The voyage, he says, was uneventful, but the few
days spent on the ocean gave him and his comrades a fresh and
pleasing experience. On the loth they arrived near Santiago and
saw Samson's fleet of iron-clads, the discomfited Vizcaya, and
other stranded vessels of the for several months much dreaded but

now vanquished Spanish armada, and they thought that things
began to seem warhke. The troops a few hours later landed at
Siboney, a few miles east of Santiago, and went into camp in a
little valley a short distance to the right of the landing. The next
day Ezra had an opportunity to visit Panaderia, a village on the
slope of a mountain about three miles from the landing, where he
saw hundreds of the destitute and unhappy reconcentradoes
crowded into narrow, filthy, and uncomfortable quarters, women
and children and feeble old men, whose homes, and the homes of
tens of thousands of their compatriots- — iii fact tens of thousands
of the wretched inhabitants had already been starved to death —
had been burned, their live stock driven away or killed, and their
crops destroyed, by order of the infamous Gen. Weyler of the
Spanish army, and the boys began more fully to realize the mean-
ing of war, and the Spanish tyranny that had so strongly appealed
to the moral sense and courage of Americans, to come to the relief
of the oppressed Cubans in their brave but unequal struggle for
freedom and independence.

On the 1 2th the order came to break camp and march to the
front near Santiago, and take position on the right of the firing
line. The boys now felt that they must soon face the stem reality
of cruel war. Fierce fighting had been going on at the front for
days, heavy losses had been sustained, and now their turn had
come to try the fortune of arms, and, as they understood, in the
most exposed position on the line. It was a long and wearisome
march through rain and mud, in the heat, over mountain, and
without water to quench racking thirst, but they had come from a
far-off land to serve in the cause of outraged humanity, and the}
were resolved to do their duty. All along the route from Sib-
oney to San Juan Hill the famous Rough Riders under Gen.
Young and Col. Theodore Roosevelt, the regulars and other troops
had fought the Spanish back step by step to their Santiago strong-
hold, and now the lion was tO' be faced in his den. The boys of
the Eighth Ohio were ready, only they did not overmuch fancy
having the old Springfield rifles and common black powder, when
the other fellows had smokeless powder and Mauser and Krag-

Jorgenson rifles. But before they reached the front, however, an
aid came in haste with orders for them to go into camp, and to do
so thev were, if possible, even more wilHng — as they were tired,
and the heat was almost unbearable. And with the welcome or-
der there came also a rumor that they hoped would prove to be
true.

The American General had at noon on the nth instant sent a
flag of truce into the town to see if the Spanish General would
agree to surrender, and on the 12th the truce was continued, the
Americans kindly offering to convey his troops back to Spain with
their arms if he would peaceably capitulate. Seeing that more
troops had been landed, with additional batteries of artillery, and
reflecting that his own soldiers were already feeling the want of
proper nourishment, and that his supply of ammunition was also
getting low. General Toral wisely and humanely concluded that
resistance was useless, and tO' save life and prevent needless suf-
fering agreed to give up and accept the proffered terms.

Ezra's journal contains many notes of interest, of which the
following are taken at random as mere examples. Under date of
the 13th he wrote: "Scores of starving Cubans passed our camp
to-day. I saw men, women and children pick scraps of meat and
crumbs of hard tack out of the mud and greedily devour them."
On the i6th, after having again changed camp, he said: "In
camp on Seville Hill, overlooking Santiago. It is much healthier
here than down in the valley. While in the valley we had a trop-
ical thunder storm ; it was sublimely terrible ; one continual flash of
lightning and one incessant peal of thunder, and the rain fell in
'tubfuls,' as the boys put it." On the 17th this note: "The
Spaniards laid down their arms and marched out of Santiago at 12
o'clock to-day." On the i8th : "Fine morning. Saw a native
have a pig in a large sack. Its head protruded from a hole, and
it was doing its level best at squealing." On the 19th: "It has
rained some every day since we landed in Cuba. It has been so
regular that I have not made notes of it."

But here, in the valley below and in the camp on Seville Hill,
an insidious enemy more dreaded than Spanish bullets had ap-



128 The Gernhardt Family History.



peared, and had to be combatted That stealthy, stalking, mys-
terious foe was believed to be none other than the universally
dreaded Yellow Jack. Whether yellow fever, or in the great ma-
jority of cases, the more common malarial fever, it was a fearful
scourge, and caused a panic even among our army doctors. They
so alarmed the authorities at Washington that the latter were
afraid to bring the army back North for fear of spreading the dis-
ease here ; but the alarm was groundless, as not one case followed
the return of the troops. But the foe was nevertheless real and
menacing, and there was cause for the fright. Numbers suc-
cumbed to the scourge, and the whole army was seriously threat-
ened. At one time there were not enough well men in Company
M to furnish a detail to stand guard. Ezra contracted the fever
on the 20th, and from that time on he never again reported for
duty. For want of enough wagons to transport food the men at
times had to lay down to sleep hungry. The tropical fruits, as
cocoanuts, limes, mangoes, grape fruit, could be had, but eating
freely of these alone made many of the soldiers sick. But worse
yet, the climate was very trying to the unacclimated troops. It
was the rainy season, and every day the men were drenched to the
skin — and as a rule were sweltering by day and shivering through
the night. The wonder is that more did not die. If the accli-
mated Spaniards could have held out a few months longer, the
fever — yellow or malarial: — as their effective auxiliary, might have
made their defeat a very difficult if not impossible task.

On the 2d of August Ezra made this record : "There are so
many of the boys sick that the field hospital was soon filled, so
each company takes care of its own sick. The bo}'s built a shack,
such as the natives live in, of poles, covered with grass, with
bunks of the same material, which, when we put our blankets on
them, made very good beds. Private Simpson, who died last
night, lay next to me, and when they carried him away I won-
dered if I would be the next. I told some of the boys I would not
die in this country if I could help it."

On the nth of August the Eighth Ohio broke camp and
marched to the heights of San Juan, the strong position of the

Spaniards that was so gallantly charged on the ist of July by the
dismounted cavalry under Sumner and by the Rough Riders under
Wood, and where our now invalid relative could at his leisure look
over the battlefield and learn of the disposition and movements of
the contending forces. A few days later they once more and for
the last time broke camp. A minute in the journal says: "Our
days in Cuba are now numbered, thank God." On the i8th the
regiment boarded the Mohawk — a cattle transport that had just
come from Porto Rico, where it had delivered a cargo of mules —
and left Santiago harbor homeward bound, passing the sunken
hull of the Merrimac with only a few feet of her smoke stack vis-
ible, and when steaming by the frowning Morro Castle, wonder-
ed how in the world Hobsoti ever got past its many great guns.
The condition of the cattle-ship contrasted unfavorably with that
of the magnificent and cleanly cruiser Saint Paul of the Interna-
tional Navigation Company, chartered and fitted up by the govern-
ment, on which the boys had been taken to Cuba. And besides,
the rations were ill-suited for sick men. Neither' will they ever
forget the sad service of burial at sea. Under date of August 30
the journal says: "Arrived home at noon. Harry Sotzen took
me out home — and the old place never looked so good to me as it
did that day."

VI. CLARISSA GARNET3, b. Aug. 10, 1809. Her mother
having died when she was an infant, she was committed to the
care of a family in the neighborhood by the name of Blosser.
When she was four years old her father died. She missed the
tender mercies of considerate parents, and was made so much of a
menial, doing a man's work on the" farm, that she was not even
allowed to attend school a single* day. But a happier life was in
store for her. January 19, 1826, when seventeen, she married a
steady and appreciative young man by the name of Gotlob D.
Wichterman, the son of a Lutheran clergyman, and was soon
taught by him to read, and she found that her life mission was
more than to make hay, lay fence rails, husk corn and cut fodder,
however useful and honorable the faithful performance of such



130 The Gernhardt Family History.

hard work ma^■ be. Two years later she and Gotlob moved to the
vicinity of Lockport, N. Y., where they bought a piece of land.
In four years more they sold out at a bountiful profit and bought
several hundred acres of the "Holland Purchase," in the town
(township) of Royalton, eight miles east of Lockport. Gotlob
had learned the trade of weaving, and Clarissa also soon became
an expert w^eaver, and wove all the fabrics of wool and flax needed
to clothe her family. She had a large family, and there was al-
ways plenty of work, summer and winter, but it was very far from
being like the pitiless and unrequieted drudgery of her early life.
It was the kind of toil that conduces to contentment, independence
and happiness. She died Dec. 25, 1883. Gotlob died April 8,
1887. They had thirteen children :

' N. Y.

Like many other young men during the great rebelhon who
went forth in defense of the Old Flag, Chauncey — then a student
at the High School at Lockport — dropped his books and went
into the army. He was enrolled as a musician Sept. i, 1862, for
three years or during the war, in Co. H, 151st N. Y. Vol. Infantry,
and was discharged with the regiment at the close of the war,
June 26, 1865. The 151st being a part of the ist Brigade of the
3d Division of the 6th Army Corps of the Army of the Potomac ,
his destiny was to see some rough service in the bloody campaign
of 1864, under the fearless and inspiring Gen. Phil H. Sheridan.

Chauncey's recollection after almost forty years is quite vivid
of the time when Sheridan, near the close of the campaign of '64,
had set his camp along Cedar Creek, just above the North Fork,
and had hurried off to Washington on some urgent war business,
and the Confederate army under Gen. Early made a sudden and
impetuous attack before the break of day, Oct. 19, driving our
entire army back about four miles, taking 1,400 prisoners and 24
pieces of artillery, and menacing it with a complete and disastrous
rout. Sheridan had just at the critical moment of impending
calamity arrived at Winchester from Washington, when, hearing
by the noise of the heavy guns that his troops were
having a serious time, he dashed off to the front with his escort as
fast as the horses could run. Chauncey, standing close to the
road on which the dashing General came, remembers the very
moment when he arrived, leading his escort at some distance, hat
in hand, covered with dust, his fiery black charger panting and
foaming all over with a lather of sweat ; how he was hailed all
along the wavering lines with vociferous shouts of delight and
applause ; how he shouted something in language, as he dashed
by, that would not look well in print, but which stirred his men
to the highest pitch of enthusiasm ; and how, inspired by his words

and presence, the pressed divisions and corps were soon again
compactly united, ready and eager to meet the expected renewed
onset of the now exulting enemy. But there was no waiting.
The ebb tide for the foe had now set in, and there was no prevent-
ing the recession. At Sheridan's command the whole line ad-
^'anced with a fervor and firmness that was irresistible, that soon
compelled the Confederates to give way at all points and changed
their fierce and sudden moniing assault into one of the most de-
cisive routs of the whole war ; and that closed Sheridan's campaign
of '64 with a glorious victory, retaking the 24 lost guns, and cap-
turing 24 Confederate pieces in addition, besides many other
trophies, and in turn taking as many prisoners from their ranks
as they had taken from us and hurried away to rear in the morn-
ing.

As a musician Chauncey did not directly participate in the
frequent clash of arms, but when the conflicts raged the import-
ant duty he was required to perform made him familiar with the
risks and horrors of war. His special service was to help gather
up the wounded as they fell, and carry them from the field 011
stretchers to places of safety, where they could receive surgical
attention. The list of battles in which the 151st N. Y. regiment
was engaged is a long one, and a full history of Chauncey's three
years' service would furnish material for a book. His descend-
ants will regret, as he now himself regrets, that he did not keep
a journal during these eventful years of service and make daily
records of his duties and impressions.

As the owner of three farms, on one of which he is living,
Cousin Chauncey properly regards himself as a farmer, but he
has at times been engaged in various occupations besides soldier-
ing and farming, as teaching school, serving as town assessor, six
years as supervisor, a number of years as an insurance agent and
dealer in real estate, twelve years as a justice of the peace, several
terms as a notary public, and for a number of years as secretary
of a cemetery association. Is the parent of ten children :
