John H. Pardington

A resident of Trenton, Wayne, Michigan. At 23 years old, John enlisted on 8/6/1862 at Detroit, MI as a Private. On 8/13/1862 he mustered into 24th Michigan Volunteer Infantry, Company B--the Iron Brigade. He was Killed on 7/1/1863 at Gettysburg, PA.

John H. Pardington was born in Cheltenham, England on Jan. 1, 1839. He immigrated 14 May 1850 with his parents and sibling aboard the "barq Solway." On the 29th of December of 1860, John married Sarah Ann Knapp, daughter of Benjamin Fairchild and Sarah Ann (Pattee) Knapp of Brownstown, Michigan. John and Sarah settled in Trenton, Michigan. On June 11, 1862 they had a baby daughter, Maria Ann Pardinton (the later Mrs. Frederick Arthur Peel).

Before his enlistment John Pardington was a store clerk in Trenton and was listed as a grocer upon immigration. He enlisted in Captain Isaac Ingersoll's Company, company B on August 6, 1862.; Although listed as a musician in the roster, none of the eighty-five letters he sent to his wife mentions playing an instrument of any kind. He was promoted to Corporal in January of 1863. On the first of January he turned twenty-four, the same day the Emancipation Proclamation became law.

He fought in the battles of Fredericksburg, Fitzhugh Crossing, and Chancellorsville, and was also involved in the smaller engagements of the Regiment.

Ultimately and tragically, he died July 1 at Gettysburg along with many other members of the 24th. He was shot through the right lung and killed. His body was never identified and he is buried somewhere either in an unmarked grave, or as one of the "unknowns" in the National Cemetery.
