Pvt James Lockwood Canfield
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1823
Denmark
Lewis County
New York, USA
Death: Dec. 11, 1862
Nashville
Davidson County
Tennessee, USA

Son of Norton and Sarah Clossin "Sally" (Lockwood) Canfield. Husband of Permelia (Webb) Canfield. Father of Charles Norton, Jenny, Lydia, Gershom, Eva May, Myrta, and Alice Canfield. Died of pneumonia while on active service in the Civil War.
The U.S. Registers of Deaths of Volunteers 1861-65 records that Pvt. James L. Lockwood, Co. I, 75th Ill. Infantry Regiment, died of pneumonia on Dec. 11, 1862, in G.H. (general hospital? government hospital?) No. 12 in Nashville, Tennessee. The family notes that I have say that he was buried in the Nashville National Cemetery. There is a joint headstone for him and his widow in the Grove Hill Cemetery in Morrison, Whiteside, Illinois. His widow had remarried and died in 1921. The date of his birth on this headstone is erroneously given as 1825 (vice 1823) and the year of his death is erroneously given as 1865 (vice 1862). I think that the erroneous dates might indicate that the headstone was not errected until some years after his death. I think that he was likely disinterred from his grave in Nashville after the war, and his body was returned to Illinois for reburial. Based on the foregoing, I have moved his memorial to the Grove Hill Cemetery in Morrison.
