Columbia Spy (Columbia, Pa.), Saturday, December 13, 1884, p. 3:
“Francis E. E. Grove, a son of the late Samuel Grove, died on Wednesday, aged about 43 years. He served for several years in a civil engineer corps, but for some time past has not engaged in any particular occupation.

He served for eighteen months during the war in Captain Stevenson’s Battery A, Third Pennsylvania Heavy Artillery, Colonel Joseph Roberts commanding. He enlisted January 29th 1864, and was discharged June 29th 1865. He participated in a number of engagements on the James, Chickahominy and Nansemond rivers, and also in the capture of Fort Fisher. While serving with a detachment under Captain John Krause, on the gunboat “Bombshell,” at Plymouth, North Carolina, on April 17th 1864, the boat was sunk, and the captain and twenty-one enlisted men fell into rebel hands. The prisoners were sent to Andersonville, where most of them died. The deceased was transferred to prison on the fair grounds near Charleston, and from there to several other prison pens. He suffered all the horrors of prison life, and was half-starved, half-famished, and when he arrived at Annapolis, for exchange, he was a mere skeleton, and only a shadow of his former self. These exposures and privations permanently affected his health, and no doubt had much to do with his subsequent life, habits and early death.

He joined Gen. Welsh Post, No. 118, G.A.R. early in 1882, and during 1883 served it as sergeant major.

His remains were buried in Mt. Bethel cemetery on Friday afternoon, at 3 o’clock. the funeral was attended by Columbia Lodge, No. 286, F. and A. M., of which he was a member. A detachment of Posr 118 was also present.”
