Birth: Mar. 20, 1847
Indiana, USA
Death: Dec. 4, 1921
Los Angeles County
California, USA

Husband of Adaline Goff
Husband of Maria I. Vandertact(1843-1919)

From Ada Elizabeth (Layton) Lewis to Elizabeth Arlene (Brickley) Eversole in a letter dated 9/25/1972. Ada and Elizabeth were cousins, their mothers were Victoria Ady Brickley and Dora Ady Layton.

William E. added 2 years to his age on the military records, saying he was born in 1845 and stuck to his story in all the pension papers, etc. William married Adeline Goff on January 1, 1868 in Indiana. He left his wife in Indiana and went to Oregon and then to northern California. He married a second wife in northern California and they were divorced; then about 1912 he married a 3rd wife in Colorado Springs, Colorado. She evidently died before he did. If I interpreted the papers right, he died in a disabled soldiers home in Sawtelle, California on 4 December 1921. Stella (Foughty) Bodine lived in Sawtelle, California when he died and is listed as next of kin. Stella was his step sister - same mother.

Enlisted in the Civil War on January 28, 1864 in Kokomo, Indiana; 130th Indiana Infantry, Company F. Discharged on 12/2/1865 in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The Sawtelle Veterans Home was a care home for disabled American veterans in what is today part of the Los Angeles metropolitan area in California in the United States. The Home, formally the Pacific Branch of the National Home for Disabled Volunteer Soldiers, was established in 1887 on 300 acres of Rancho San Vicente y Santa Monica lands donated by Senator John P. Jones and Arcadia B. de Baker.
In 1865, Congress passed legislation to incorporate the National Asylum for Disabled Volunteer Soldiers and Sailors of the Civil War. Volunteers were not eligible for care in the existing regular army and navy home facilities. This legislation, one of the last Acts signed by President Lincoln, marked the entrance of the United States into the direct provision of care for the temporary versus career military. The Asylum was renamed the National Home for Disabled Volunteer Soldiers in 1873. It was also known colloquially as the Old Soldiers Home.
In 1900 admission was extended to all honorably discharged officers, soldiers and sailors who served in regular or volunteer forces of the United States in any war in which the country had been engaged and who were disabled, who had no adequate means of support and were incapable of earning a living.
