Barton T. Blackmer, resident of Hubbardton, enlisted as a Private in 2nd Battery, Light Artillery on February 29, 1864, mustered in March 02, 1864, and on March 01, 1865 he transferred to 1st Co. Heavy Artillery and was reported killed on 22 May 1865.
In the Vermont Civil War - Cemetery Data Base, it shows a Barton Blackmer from the first Heavy Arty as being buried in the National Cemetery at Port Hudson. This is definitely in error since, on March 04, 1878, Barton applied for a pension (No. 249,767) in recognition of his service in the above company during the Civil War. It may be that another soldier was mistaken for him and this might have caused the confusion. A similar situation occurred with Dr. John Blackmer.

He married twice (Sisters):

18 Mar 1872 Mary J. Smith 1856-1877
11 Jun 1878 Francetta L. Smith 1859-1901
