Marion Amos Fairchild
Learn about removing the ads from this memorial...
Birth: 1825
Washington County
Ohio, USA
Death: 1865
Eagle Pass
Maverick County
Texas, USA

Amos worked for Mr Hunter, government clerk and was taking correspondence west when caught at Eagle Pass by Duff's raiders and hung for refusing to join their Conferate Band. His family from Illinois all belonged to the Union Army and some had been killed, so his loyalties could not belong with the Confederates, especially the renegades that roamed this part of the country at that time. His wife, Lucretia was pregnant with their last child, Amy.

Although not a uniformed member of the armed forces, there's significant enough written evidence to suggest that Marion Amos Fairchild lost his life defending freedom and the Union cause during the Civil War.
