From Ontario Republican Times 8 January 1862

We observe that our esteemed and patriotic townsman, Charles E. Emory, has returned home on furlough. It will be remembered that Mr. Emory is 3d assistant engineer on the U. S. Frigate, Richmond, which has been in several engagements and received injuries which made it necessary to return to the Navy Yard for repairs. We learn that Mr. E. will return to his post next week.



From Geneva Gazette 31 January 1862

Returned from the War - Hugh J. Dunnigan,
of Rushville, attached to Capt. Baird's company, 38th Reg't., who was shot through the thigh and taken prisoner at the battle of Bull Run, arrived here last week on a furlough to visit his friends.  He was exchanged about a month since, and having recovered from the effects of his wound, immediately joined his company, to which he will shortly return.

William Ross, of this village, also badly wounded and taken prisoner at the same battle, was in the last batch of exchanges, and returned home a few days since.  He is badly crippled, and has, we believe, received an honorable discharge.

John Lamphier, of this village, who was reported by Capt. Baird as missing after the battle has not been heard of since.  He was probably killed.



From Geneva Courier 19 February 1862

Our citizens, with the exception of a few Rebel sympathizers, were wild with excitement on Monday afternoon last, on the reception of the glorious news that our army had been successful in the capture of Fort Donelson.  All the bells in our village were rung, men and boys were shouting, flags were run out, the cannon, guns and pistols were heard on every corner.  Mr. B. F. Keyes, who has two sons in the army, we believe was the first to unfurl the good old Stars and Stripes.

From Geneva Gazette 17 October 1862

Little Edward (son of Henry Savage), who went as a drummer boy with the 126th regiment, returned home from Chicago on Wednesday last.  He has been ill for some time with camp fever, having barely strength to reach home.  It was a sad sight to see the little fellow, whom we remember to have seen with the drum corps, marching with firm and elastic step at the head of our gallant regiment, now but a mere wreck, and so feeble as to require to be carried from the cars to the carriage, and from the carriage to the house.  We hope, however, now that he has the kind and constant nursing of devoted parents, that he will soon recover his wonted health.



From Geneva Courier 8 July 1863

From Ontario Republican Times 15 July 1863

On Thursday night last, Judge J. C. Smith, left town for the battlefield of Gettysburg, for the purpose of securing the remains of the gallant young Capt. Wheeler, who was killed in the recent battle at that place. The last reports from the Judge were that he and Judge Folger were upon the battlefield but had not yet found the spot of the Captain's burial.

Mr. Levi Herendeen has also proceeded to the scene of action to remove his brother, Capt. Orren Herendeen, who was also killed in that battle. Much difficulty has been experienced by those who have gone to the field in getting there. It is to be sincerely hoped that the remains of both these young men can be reached and returned to their friends. Their fate is sad but their record is glorious.



From Ontario Republican Times 5 August 1863

We are pleased to hear that Andrew J. Cady, of Co. K, 126th Regiment N. Y. S. V., who was reported killed in the battle of Gettysburg, is still among the living. He has written to his parents in this village informing them that he is a prisoner, and slightly wounded. The letter was written from Williamsport, Md.
