U.S. Private, Company A, Pennsylvania 20th Infantry Regiment (for 12 days), Sheppard Ogden CARMAN (1844-1865)

* father: James Henry CARMAN, Sr. (1820-1901). James, Sr. marries the widow Rebecca P. (Brown) (Collier) CARMAN (1822-1886) in 1840; they have seven? children. James, Sr. works as a saddle tree maker, then a teamster, then sells flour, feed & grain from his own business "J. H. Carman & Son" at 674 North Broad Street, Philadelphia, (Philadelphia), Pennsylvania, USA. James, Sr.'s son Florence is later listed as a flour & grain dealer. James, Sr.'s last occupation on record is as a casemaker. As a widower, James, Sr. remarries Frances M. (Parker) CARMAN (unknown-unknown).

* mother: Rebecca P. (Brown) (Collier) CARMAN (1822-1886). Rebecca's first husband was William Henry COLLIER, Sr. (unknown-1838); they had one son William Henry COLLIER, Jr. (1838-1916). With second husband James, Sr., Rebecca has seven? more children.

* Sheppard is born March 9, 1844; Philadelphia, (Philadelphia), Pennsylvania, USA.

* Sheppard (age 5) is Christened January 6, 1850; Gloria Dei (Old Swedes') Church, Philadelphia, (Philadelphia), Pennsylvania, USA.

* Sheppard is one of seven siblings:
1.) U.S. Sergeant, Pennsylvania 106th Infantry Regiment, Wooldridge's Company Sappers & Min., James Henry CARMAN, Jr. (1840-1893) marries Selina (McCollum) CARMAN (1849-1884); they have three sons. As a widower, James, Jr. remarries Anna M. (Howe) CARMAN (1856-1899).
2.) U.S. Private, Company B, Pennsylvania 72nd Infantry Regiment, Charles Florence CARMAN (1842-1870) marries (and divorces?) Susannah Florence (Whartnaby) (Carman) RESTINE (1840-1899). Susannah remarries Frederick C. RESTINE (unknown-unknown) in 1868. The Pennsylvania 72nd fights at the Battle of Gettysburg at "The Angle" defending against Pickett's Charge. At this time, I do not know if Charles was present at Gettysburg.
3.) self, U.S. Private, Company A, Pennsylvania 20th Infantry Regiment (for 12 days), Sheppard Ogden CARMAN (1844-1865) marries Mary? Elizabeth S. B. (Cree) (Carman) (Shuster) HOHENSTEIN (1847-1917); they have one daughter Rebecca P. (Carman) HARTLEY (1866-1907) born after Sheppard dies. As a widow, Elizabeth remarries Philip SHUSTER (unknown-unknown/before 1889); they have one daughter Lillian U. "Lillie" (Shuster) VIRTUE (1879-1942). As a widow again, Elizabeth remarries Harry HOHENSTEIN (1859-1914).
4.) George S. CARMAN (1846-1914) dies at 68 years old from a trolley car striking his head. Is listed as a widower, but I cannot find whom he married.
5.) male, Florence Ogden CARMAN (1850-1918) marries Kate Elizabeth (Pindar) CARMAN (1852-1928); they have three sons.
6.) Annie (Carman) REIGNER (1852-unknown) marries Howard Y. RIEGNER (1848-unknown); they have five children.
7.) Charlotte A. CARMAN (1872-1877). May or may not be related. Her parents are listed as James H. & Rebecca CARMAN of 812 East Norris Street. Possible mother Rebecca was fifty years old in 1872, which is possible, but that address seems away from other known CARMAN addresses.

* September 18, 1862; Pennsylvania, USA
Sheppard (18) enlists as a Private in Company A, Pennsylvania 20th Infantry Regiment to fight against the Confederacy. His service lasts twelve days.

* September 30, 1862; Harrisburg, (Dauphin), Pennsylvania, USA
Sheppard (18) musters-out of military service after only twelve days of service. I do not know why yet.

* February 15, 1864; Church of the Evangelist (Catholic), Philadelphia, (Philadelphia), Pennsylvania, USA.
Sheppard (19) marries Mary? Elizabeth S. B. CREE (16). Sheppard works as a salesman, a Union soldier, a driver, then as a teamster. Sheppard's late residence is 513 Washington Avenue, Philadelphia, (Philadelphia), Pennsylvania, USA.

* Sheppard dies December 23, 1865; Philadelphia, (Philadelphia), Pennsylvania, USA.
21 years, 9 months, 14 days
Cause of death: We think it says "compound fracture of femur."

* Sheppard is buried December 26, 1865; "Sweeds Ground" which I assume is now called Gloria Dei (Old Swedes) Church Burial Ground, Philadelphia, (Philadelphia), Pennsylvania, USA.

* Sheppard dies and is buried six months before the birth of his one daughter with Elizabeth:
1.) Rebecca P. (Carman) HARTLEY (June 18, 1866-April 10, 1907) marries Howard Jerome HARTLEY, Sr. (1868-1929). They have eight children. As a widower, Howard remarries Sarah J. (Goldschmidt) (Hartley) McVEY (1880-1952); Howard has two more children with Sarah. As a widow, Sarah remarries Joseph F. McVEY (unknown-unknown/before 1940).

* I am still trying to locate any family buried near Sheppard.

* Sheppard's parents and brother are buried together in a family plot in Mount Peace Cemetery, Philadelphia, (Philadelphia), Pennsylvania, USA, in Section K, Lot 139. There is also a Sheppard CARMAN listed as buried in this family plot which makes for two possibilities: 1.) Sheppard was removed and reburied with his parents, or 2.) Sheppard is still in Gloria Dei, and the Sheppard buried in Mount Peace was a nephew named in his honor.
