This is a wonderfully useful site, but I'm certain you misses a soldier who served in the 1st MHA, at least according to the Adj. Gen. Report of 1861. The man is Carver, Everett: Milo, 23, single, son of William and Sarah (Sally) Wells Carver. Rejected and not mustered in to Co. A ("Brownville Rifles"), 6th Maine Infantry. Enlisted in 1st Maine Heavy Artillery Dec. 2, 1863. [Not listed in Shaw’s history.] Mustered out May 13, 1865. [AGR, 1861, p. 60.] [Mundy, No Rich Men's Sons, p. 225.]

I was glad to find this resource on the Internet. I would be interested in finding more information or photos about Maj. Charles House. He was my great-grandfather.

Great site! I've learned a lot about the 1st Maine Heavy Artillery since I found it a couple of weeks agao.

My g-g-grandfather, Daniel McCurdy, is among the soldiers of the 1st MHA. According to Historical Data Systems, he enlisted on 21 Aug 1862. The data base also lists him as "mustering out 18 June 1864 at Petersburg." He is among the casualties in Co. A noted on pg 13 of a compilation of THE MAINE BUGLE published in 1894 (

Daniel's wife Hannah applied for a widow's pension 7 Aug 1865 (app # 104681, cert # 69192). She later is listed as receiving a widow's pension of $8.00 a month in Douglas County, Kansas.

Daniel's son, Andrew Carleton [Carlton] McCurdy also served in the 1st MHA, Co. M 1863-1866.

Before I order military and/or pension files, and the book by Shaw, can any one direct me to any other sources I might check for additional military information regarding this family?

Thanks in advance.

Thank you for your great work. I live with my wife and daughter in the Bay View, WA home of Edward C. Osborn, Pvt., Co. A, 1st Maine Heavy Artillery. Edward enlisted on July 10, 1862 and was discharged on June 6, 1865. He eventually came out west to farm a few acres in the Skagit Valley. He spent the last 10 years of his life in the Washington Veterans' Home in Kitsap County. Edward died January 27, 1928. He was buried in the Bay View Cemetery, just 3 miles from his home.
