Death: Jun. 9, 1916

Johnson Fleagle, a former resident of Gettysburg, and a veteran of the Civil War, died at his home in York last Saturday following a long illness caused by cancer. He is survived by his wife who was Miss Catherine Izer of Adams County, and three children, Robert of Philadelphia, Beatrice McKendrick of York, and Martin at home. He also leaves three children by his first marriage as follows: Charles, John and Frank Fleagle. The funeral services were held in York.-Gettysburg Compiler 17 Jun 1916

Note: Last Name is documented both as Flegel and Fleagle. There is some question on place of birth: 1850, 1870, 1880, 1910 Census list PA, 1900 Census lists MD, PA Death Certificate says MD but informant does not know parents names/place of birth so I am not sure of the reliability. I have gone with family tradition which states PA.

"A Civil War veteran, he enlisted and mustered into federal service at Emmittsburg October 20, 1862, as a private with Co. C, 1st Maryland Potomac Home Brigade Cavalry. He was captured in a skirmish near Halltown, (West) Virginia, November 14, 1862, incarcerated in Richmond, Virginia, and paroled at City Point December 12, 1862. He supplied his own horse and associated equipment for which he received a $.40 daily stipend. He suffered a shell wound to the left leg July 17, 1864, at the battle of Snicker's Gap, Virginia, and was hospitalized at Frederick and ultimately in Emmittsburg, where he requested and received a thirty-day furlough. He returned to the regiment but spent much of his last days in service as the company cook. He discharged by general order June 28, 1865 at Harpers Ferry, West Virginia. His surname is spelled "Fleagle" in his compiled military service records." Courtesy of Dennis Brandt (#47232334)
