Sgt Stephen Bolin
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Feb. 19, 1842
Death: Oct. 21, 1863


Andersonville (Georgia) Prison Camp, where over 13,000 POW's perished,

Libby Prison in Richmond was comprised of three 4-story warehouses, which were dismantled piece by piece after the war and reassembled in Chicago. When torn down, a farmer named Davis bought some of the timbers and built a massive barn in Hamlet, in LaPorte County, Indiana. The timbers still bore the assembly marks such as "Third Floor E" and names carved by prisoners...

Sergeant Edwin Bolin was a member of the 35th Indiana Infantry and died 8/17/64 at Andersonville of Diarrhea. Records state that he was buried in grave #6018, but that record was changed by the QM in 1913, to reflect that he is not buried at Andersonville.

Stephen and Edwin Bolin were brothers - two of the three sons of Elisha and Mary (Miller) Bolin.
Stephen Bolin was born February 19, 1842 and died October 21, 1863 in Chattanooga TN from wounds sustained in the Battle of Chickamauga. Muster rolls list his rank as sergeant beginning February 28, 1863. Medical records show him treated as follows: "Oct 1 to 21, 63, GSW (gun shot wound) fracture right thigh upper third, wounded Sept. 19, with ball in right thigh entering anteriorly four inches below groin ligament and passing out at near same level posteriorly. Fracture. Oct. 18 acute pneumonia of right lung, died Oct. 21, 63"

A third brother, George Wesley Bolin, also served in the same Company and, like Edwin, was captured at Stones River and Chickamauga. He was confined at Andersonville where he was admitted to the hospital August 4, 1864 with scurvy. He was returned to prison November 2, paroled at Savannah, Ga on Nov. 21 and discharged February 7, 1865. He returned to Wabash Co., married in 1868 and in 1893 moved his family to Castle Rock Minnesota where he died April 8, 1913.
