Darling J Vincent

Birth: 1825
Wayne County
New York, USA
Death: Jun. 29, 1864
Hopewell City
Virginia, USA

Darling J. Vincent was born in 1825 in Lyons, Wayne County, New York. He was a son of Ezra and Lydia (Freeman) (Hamblen) Vincent. His family, originally from Maine, resided in New York from 1815 until 1834 when they pulled up roots again and emigrated to Ohio - settling in the area around Clyde in Sandusky County. Vincent became a school teacher and was teaching in Hamilton, Ohio at the time the war broke out. I am not sure how Darling wound up joining a Pennsylvania unit but he enlisted as a Sergeant in Co C, 21st Pennsylvania Cavalry (182nd Regiment) in Feb 1864 and was killed in front of Petersburg just 4 months later. He may have been among the 79 members of his unit wounded in heavy fighting on 18 Jun and he probably died in the Depot Field Hospital at City Point a few days later. It is unlikely that he was married as he was single at the time of the 1860 census and his father was the only beneficiary of his outstanding pay and allowances following his death.
