RE: Samuel Gohn

Here's what I found:

SAMUEL GOHN was born in November 2, 1820, in York County, Pennsylvania, and married Elizabeth A. Sweeney. He worked in a tannery.

People's Advocate and Press, Bloomfield, Perry County, Pennsylvania; August 17, 1904
Samuel Gohn, Sr., after an illness of six months died on the evening of the 14th inst., aged nearly 84 years. Deceased was a veteran of the Civil War and was a member of the 173d Reg. And also of the 208th Reg., and served until the end of the war. His wife died some years ago. He leaves two sons and four daughters, Samuel and Miss Emma residing in Liverpool, Edward, Mrs. Geo. Sechrist, Mrs. John Zeigler and Miss
Rebecca, residing at Harrisburg.

Samuel is found in the June 1890 Special Schedule for Liverpool Township, Perry County, Pennsylvania, Census. He has the noted disabilities of wound ruptures and heart disease. Samuel also served as a private in the 173rd Regiment Pennsylvania Volunteers, Company E (November 2, 1862 August 17, 1863). He applied for a pension on May 23, 1877. Samuel died on August 14, 1904, and is buried in the Liverpool Cemetery, Perry County.

Additions or corrections would be appreciated.

Samuel Gohn
Hi Craig,

I transferred Samuel to your care.

I would appreciate any biographical data you might have regarding Samuel. I've been researching the lives of the men who made up the 208th for a number of years.

Thanks and best wishes,
