Louis Gatchell Harlan

Birth: Jul. 26, 1831
Death: Dec. 3, 1902

Louis Gatchell Harlan was born July 26, 1831 - despite what the tombstone may claim - the son of Samuel & Eleanor (Gatchell) Harlan. He married Isabella Grant c. 1853 in Cecil County, Maryland, and fathered Samuel John (b. @1853), Joseph Grant (b. 03/??/55), Ella E. (b. 09/02/58), Millard Fillmore (b. 02/25/60), and Frank L. (b. 09/17/69). In 1860, he was a tobacconist living in Cecil County.

He enlisted in Cecil County September 14, 1861, mustered into federal service September 18 at Pikesville Arsenal as a private with Independent Battery B, Maryland Light Artillery, and honorably discharged at term's end November 19, 1864. In 1900, Isabella still lived in Cecil County, Maryland.

I see no indication that he ever lived in Steelton, but it's possible that he moved in with one of his children late in life. I note that researchers in the Maryland area cannot find Louis's date of death or burial location, which may indicate they didn't know where he went. I guess they never looked in Pennsylvania. By the way, no Louis Gatchell served with either Independent Battery B, Pennsylvania Light Artillery or Battery B, 1st Pennsylvania Light Artillery. (Courtesy Dennis Brandt)
