From the memoirs of Frank Dumm:

"The fourth child of James and Elizabeth Young Minteer was a son, Samuel Alexander, who was born Feb. 4, 1839. His mother died the day he was born. He grew up on the farm and remained at home until he enlisted as a soldier in Co. K 78th Regiment Pa. Volunteer Infantry in the summer of 1862. He was in the battles of Stone River and Murfreesboro Dec. 31, 1862 - Jan. 2, 1863. In June 1863 he took Typhoid Fever and died June 26, 1863 in the Military Hospital in Nashville. He is buried in the National Cemetery there. His grave is in Section E -- No. 568. In 1937 I visited the National Cemetery there and hunted up Uncle Samuel's grave. On the plain marble marker is inscribed "S.A. Minteer 568 Pa." The cemetery is a beautiful and better kept "City of the Dead" than those in their native state of Pennsylvania where his brothers and sisters sleep."

(He was mustered into the service on September 13, 1862.)
