Thomas F. Mahan enlisted from Cooper Co., Missouri on the 9th day of November 1861 to serve three years and was mustered into the United States service as a Private in the 11th Independent Battery Ohio Volunteers Light Artillery.

The men who composed this battery were enlisted from Cincinnati between Aug. 20th and Sept. 17th 1861.

Thomas was sick in the hospital at Memphis for about three months but at all times he was with his command during its service.

They arrived before Little Rock on Sept. 9th 1862 and immediately became engaged with the enemy and drove them from the river. The officers and men received commendations for their ability and accurate fireing.

The battery remained at Little Rock until August 1, 1864 then moved to Pine Bluff, Arkansas when it performed garrison duty until ordered to Ohio for muster out. He mustered out on the 5th of Nov. 1864.

His brother, D.P. Mahan, served in Company G, 9th Missouri Calvary.

Thomas Mahan was a carpenter and went West before 1881. He lived in Kalama, Washington and he influenced his inlaws Andrew and Naomi Barngrover to come to Washington. He moved to Seattle, Wa. before Andrew Barngrover's death.
