SEACORD, WILLIAM B.--Age, 21 years. Enlisted at Cortland, to serve three years, and mustered in as private, Co. G, October 12, 1861; deserted, January or February, 1862, at Cortland. This is my great grandfather's brother and we have a story in a family book, published in 1955, about William B. Seacord's military service.  The purpose of my writing to you, is to correct the note in your entry that William deserted.  According to the book, William B. Seacord, who was born February 18, 1841, in Bovina, NY, was not of age when the war began but he enlisted in the Volunteers.  His father through the court, had him discharged.  In Septmeber, 1862, he enlisted in the NY Cavalry.  When the 3rd Battalion of the regiment was completed in January, 1863, William was ordered to the front and joined his regiment in VA.  He fought with his regiment for 18 months when he was shot through both thighs.  My great grandfather found him, dressed the wounds as best he could and got him into an ambulance that took William to White House Landing where he was put on a boat and taken to Davids' Island, NY.  Three months later, in September, he reported to duty to the surgeon in charge at David's Island and was pronounced unfit for field duty and was sent to Washington for light duty about the capitol.  Williams wanted to get back into the fighting and he watched for a chance and boarded a steamer loaded with recruits bound for Virginia and stole away to the army.  We reported at the Army camp in Va and was sent to the dismounted camp of the Calvary Corps, where he was order back to Washington.  I didn't and went back to his regiment.  It sounds like he disobeyed the the camp surgeon, who was concerned for him due to William's wounds and went with his regiment to the day's battle and was captured and taken to Salisbury, NC.  He was at a prisoner-of-war camp in Salisbury and his wounds became worst and he died sometime in November 1864.  In Preston's History of the 10th NY Cavalry, William Seacord is mentioned with praise and honor 5 times.  According to family records, William may have also died of starvation and his body was never located.  My great great grandfather obtained the certificate of death and William is supposed to be listed at a grave in Salisbury for unknown soldiers.

A report of his wound is in the Medical and Surgical History 

CASE 269.--Corporal C. H. Smith, Co. K, 76th, New York, aged 20 years, was wounded at Gettysburg, July 1, 1863, by a conoidal ball. He was admitted to the Seminary Hospital from the field, where he had been treated in a private house, and was afterward transferred to the Citizens' Volunteer Hospital at Philadelphia, where he was admitted on October 3d. He was transferred to Germantown-March 14th, and admitted to Cuyler Hospital on the same day, with "gunshot wound of abdomen, perforating cavity and injuring intestines." He was returned to duty October 14, 1864, and discharged the service October 24, 1864. Pension Examiner Horace Lathrop, of Otsego, New York, reported, August 30, 1866: "Ball entered left side just above the crest of the ilium, two inches above the anterior superior spinous process, passed downward and backward through the wing of the ilium, and out near the last lumbar vertebra. There is now an opening in both localities, and the anterior one discharges faecal matter. The colon is probably wounded. He requires constant assistance from another person; his other wounds are healed; disability total." Pension Examiner S. H. Case, of Oneonta, reported, September, 24, 1866: "Has received several gunshot wounds in the vicinity of the pelvis; but the principal, if not the only, disability at present of much account is owing to a wound in the left side. He alleges that faeces, wind, and food escaped from the wound through both openings made by the ball, at first, and occasionally now from the wound of entrance. The injury evidently caused an abscess in the loins between said wounds, which opened by ulceration, and from which a large offensive and ill-conditioned discharge now constantly escapes, and at present disables him more than the loss of a hand or foot."

Regimental History and tombstone have his first name as "Ellis". Smith died in 1931 and is buried in the New Woodstock, NY, Cemetery. Smith seems to have inflated his rank somewhat in his post-war memories. Note that his tombstone has him as "Captain" Smith - the Regimental History says he was "sixth corporal" in Co. G.

From the Cortland Gazette and Banner correspondent "JFP" - letter of May 2, 1862
"These men, with a single exception or two were discharged, not for disobedience or unmanly conduct, but because their health would not permit them longer to remain with us. And they are deserving of no less honor, than though they had traveled through rivers of blood. They return to their homes and friends, regretting that they could not stay with us as a regiment, and share our privations, trials and fortunes to the end. Of one in particular we would speak, because we have known him more. We refer to S. N. Stone, of company A, for a short time a clerk at Cortland. During his connection with the 76th regiment, he conducted himself as become a soldier and a man, uncomplaining at duty or hardships, and always willing, nay, anxious to have his comrades far better than himself. The fruit of such noble acts, was his being compelled to abandon his soldierly career. "


Stone died August 8, 1888, and is buried in Cortland Rural Cemetery.
