Stearns, Martin Phillip

Martin Phillip Stearns - photo contributed by Wanda Huisman

Private Co. C, 21st IA Inf Volga City 1828-1867; buried in Hillcrest cemetery, lot 73. My gg-grandfather, Martin P. Stearns was wounded at the battle of Vicksburg, A musket bullet hit his belt buckle and ruptured the abdomen cavity and fecal matter passed out the wound. Dec 10, 1867 he died from this wound. The family has passed down that until his death the fecal matter passed out of this wound; so he likely died of infection; really a miracle that he lived for four years that way. As a result his children received a Civil War Pension. Martin's sister was Susan Keeling & her husband got control of the children's money, possibly because his wife Catherine (nee Tinkham) couldn't write. On a document she signed, her name was an X. The receipts in the courthouse are records of how the children's money was spent. One indicates that each of them put in an equal amount & bought their father's tombstone. A son, John Thomas, was born 7 Feb 1867 and died 19 Oct 1867 was listed on the same tombstone as Martin. I think the original picture of Martin was a charcoal drawing, now lost. Records show he served in Iowa 21st Company C. Age 33. Residence Volga City, nativity England. Enlisted Aug. 12, 1862. Mustered Aug. 22, 1862. Wounded May 22, 1863 Vicksburg, Miss.
