Chilton Times of August 16, 1914:
CIVIL WAR VETERAN DIES
Tuesday afternoon marked the passing of another veteran of the civil war. At five o'clock on that day Joel B. Bancroft died at his home in the town of Charlestown at the age of seventy-nine years, ten months and six days.
Joel B. Bancroft was born at Hamtramack, Wayne County, Mich., and when a child was taken to New York state with his parents where he grew to manhood. He followed farming until the civil war broke out when he enlisted April 27, 1861, in Company E of the Fourteenth New York volunteer infantry and served three years and then re-enlisted and served to the close of the war. On the last day of the seven days battle he was wounded in the knee and taken prisoner. He was conveyed to the hospital annex of Libby prison and shortly afterward was exchanged and for nine months was in the hospital. After recovering his health he again took up farming.
In 1872 he came to Wisconsin and located in the town of Charlestown where he was married in 1874 to Lucy E. Allen. Mr. Bancroft was a quiet, unassuming man, one who attended strictly to his own affairs. He was a devoted husband and father and no better or more obliging neighbor than he could be found in any community. He was a man who was posted on the passing events and enjoyed discussing same with his friends who visited his home.
Some five years ago his health began to fail and for the past year his condition was such that it needed the constant attention of his family. For the past two months he had been unable to leave his bed and death came as a relief. Death is attributed to old age and paralysis.
He is survived by a widow, four sons, Allen, Barrett, Trubert, George and two daughters, Miss Victoria and Mrs. Howard Losey of the town of Charlestown.
The funeral was held on Thursday morning from the M. E. church in Gravesville, Rev. A. O. Nuss of Stockbridge officiating.
