Andrew J. Tomlin
Birth: Mar. 15, 1845
Death: Nov. 1, 1906

Civil War Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient. He was a Sergeant in the United States Marine Corps. His citation reads "As a corporal of the guard on board the USS Wabash during the assault on Fort Fisher, 15 January 1865. As one of 200 Marines assembled to hold a line of entrenchments in the rear of the fort which the enemy thereatened to attack in force following a retreat in panic by more than two-thirds of the assaulting ground forces, Cpl. Tomlin took position in line and remained until morning when relief troops arrived from the fort. When one of his comrades was struck down by enemy fire, he unhesitatingly advanced under a withering fire of musketry into an open plain close to the fort and assisted the wounded man to a place of safety." (bio by: Don Morfe)
