Elisha Painter
Birth: May 27, 1836
Greene County
Missouri, USA
Death: Feb. 5, 1922
Pierce County
Washington, USA

The son of Jacob Painter and Betsy Compton; he married twice. His first wife was Mary Jane Ingram (with whom he is believed to have fathered 16 children - of which four have been identified). His second wife was Myra Amelia King.

Extracted from his application for Disabled CW Vet:

On 3 Jun 1899...Elisha Painter, aged 62 years, a resident of the Marionville, Lawrence County, Missouri...declares that he is the identical Elisha Painter who enrolled on the 15 day of August 1862, in Company D of the 72 Regiment of EMM commanded by Capt. Jarred E. Smith and was honorably DISCHARGED at Springfield MO on the 31 day of January, 1863; that his personal description is as follows: height 6 feet 0 inches; complexion, dark; hair, dark; eyes, dark.

That while a member of the organization aforesaid, in the service and in the line of his duty at Springfield, in the State of Missouri, on or about the 8th day of January, 1863, he was wounded in the right heel while in the line of duty in Battle with Rebels and while his company and all of the militia forces were under the command of General E. B. Brown, a united states officer. . . .

The initial application was not approved since he was assigned to a Home Guard. He fought for the pension until 1918, at which time he was already living in the Soldiers Home.
