F/F/Fs Who Served in Illinois Units

Any F/F/Fs that were called out in the Newsletter have now been noted within the various individual state pages with links to the particular Newsletter pages in which they were mentioned.  Whenever possible I have also linked the official history of that individual’s Unit was well. 

   Note:  This symbol (the symbol for “transformation” I understand … which also looks a bit like the WWII USAF symbol) will be used to indicated anyone who died as a consequence of the war.

Interesting statistics …. if true:

On this page http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=califia1&id=I1660   the genealogist Bill Boggess gave the following information regarding the Civil War:

“There were 50 [fifty] Floras who volunteered in the of 1.05 million CSA [Confederate States Army] members and 117 [one hundred and seventeen] Floras of the 2.21 million USA [United States Army] members.”  I haven’t seen this mentioned before but I find it interesting (if true) as I have not run across any Floras in my lines who served as part of the armed forces of the Confederacy in the 1861-1865 conflict.

Anyone with information to add to any of the F/F/Fs noted, please contact me and I will add it to the individual’s paragraphs in the appropriate state.  (Email me at:    floras@netspeed.com.au   for passing along such things as photos, additional information, etc.)

Flory, Henry Taylor   Co. A, 21st Regiment, Illinois Volunteer Infantry  (Union)  Private

Alternate Name in USG Records:  Florey, Taylor

Note:  Based on Information Received from Jon Florey:  Andrew J., Robert and Taylor Florey/Flora were brothers and descendants through their father Israel to John Florey and to Nicholas Adolph Flohri (Flory). Jon Florey adds:  “The 21st Illinois became Grant’s first Civil War command.  Taylor was very young, seventeen-years-old, when he joined,  He was captured at Chickamauga and sent to the notorious Andersonville priosner of war camp where about 30 percent of the inmates died.  Taylor survived but was never healthy after the war and died at age 32 in 1879.  He was buried in Santa Clara, California where many of the Floreys settled after the Civil War.”   Jon also adds that his full name is “Henry Taylor Flory”.

The following interesting obituary for him is to be found on the “Find-a-grave” website (Memorial 58154310)     If anyone can add anything to verify the “Israel de Fleury” portion mentioned in the Macon County, Illinois paper, it would be most interesting …..

Birth:  Apr. 19, 1847, Macon County, Illinois, USA
Death:  Jan. 31, 1879, San Jose, Santa Clara County, California, USA.  Son of Israel Florey and Elizabeth Bell.

FLOREY, Henry T.  “DIED – In Santa Clara, Cal., of consumption, on Friday Jan 31, at 1 o’clock pm in the thirty first year of his age, Henry T. Florey.”Henry T. Florey was the fifth son of the late Israel – or more correctly – Israel De Fleury, of the De Fleurys of France. His father, at one time was a wealthy land owner in this county, but through disastrous speculations his children were thrown upon their own resources, and at the age of twelve Henry entered the Gazette office, as an apprentice to the printing business. After staying in the office for about 2 yrs at the age of fourteen he enlisted as a recruit in the 21st Regiment Ill. Infantry, at that time under the command of Grant. Enduring all the privations and dangers of a soldier’s life without a murmer, he was with the regiment at the battle of Chickamauga, where, upon retreat of the regiment, he was urged to fly. “I’ll die first”, said this boy hero – and reloading and firing, he stood until surrounded and made prisoner. The admiration for his bravery was such that he was not harmed by his captors; he was sent with other prisoners to Richmond and from there, from prison to prison until he reached Andersonville, where for fifteen months he endured the horrible privations with which we are all too familiar.

“Towards the close of the war, through an exchange of prisoners, he was released with a constitution ruined forever. Upon his return home, being then but eighteen years old, he entered the land agency business in Vicksburg, Miss. in company with his brother, Robert, who died of consumption twelve years ago. After his brother’s death, Henry removed to Beulah, Miss., the town’s name being changed to Floreyville in his honor.

“There while applying himself to the study of law he was proprietor of the Floreyville Star, a weekly newspaper and for several years was clerk of the circuit and county courts, in the bitter political contest of 1876, being the only Republican elected to office on the entire ticket.

“His health failing after trying the southern climate, about two years ago he settled up his affairs in Miss. and went to Calif. From the first his health failed rapidly, and although he attempted to engage in business in San Francisco, he was obliged to resign all hope of health. Going to Santa Clara, where two of his sisters reside, he was watched over with all the tender solicitude of sisters who idolized him, and all that wealth and affection could be to turn aside death was done. But Andersonville had done its work.

“His last words to his sisters who were with him were: “Are you afraid?” Upon her reply, “No”, he turned, and looking from the window for the last time on earth, upon the pleasant world, he closed his eyes and without a struggle passed away. A truer gentleman, a kinder son or brother never closed his eyes upon earthly scenes. With a brilliant, well stored mind, with a kindly courtesy, and a gently reserve which made him thoughtfully regardful of others – while being intimate with few – he was loved and respected by all with whom he came in contact. “Brave and gentle always” writes his sister “he thought of others even in his last moment”.

“Thus passed away in early manhood one whose ambition even as a boy, aimed high, whose logical mind, trained by extensive reading and travel, together with his manners, full of dignity, fitted him for the highest positions in life. And the gentle breezes of Santa Clara valley sigh above the grave where lies buried the hopes of many loving hearts.”     Decatur Daily Republican, Nov., Feb. 17, 1879.

Roeder, Johann Heinrich (Henry)  Co. C, 29th Illinois Volunteer Infantry (Union)

From Daniel Flora:  “Johann Heinrich Roeder was born in 1846 in Speckswinkel, Hesse, Germany to Johann and Anna Roeder.  In 1862 at 15, Henry (as he was known in the U.S.) immigrated to Eden township Eagle, LaSalle County, ILlinois.  In 1864 Henry, at 17, substituted for Daniel Roobe and joined Co. C, 29th Illinois Infantry.  Henry saw action at Spanish Fort and Fort Blakeley, Alabama [the last fought April 9th, 1865].  After the war Henry married Anna Ploch in 1867.  One of their children (John Daniel Roeder) is my Great-grandfather.  He married Zoe Trusheim of Buckley, Illinois.  Of their children, Chappelle Roeder is my Grandmother.  Chappelle married Alvin Kuhlman, who was born in Lowell, Wisconsin.  Their daughter, Kay Roeder Kuhlman, is my mother and she married Brian Flora (of the Flora Line A through Thomas Flora from Maryland.”

Portrait of Johann Heinrich Roeder “The portrait must be post war … he was Infantry and that is a cavalry jacket, so he probably, at 18, just wanted a memento of his service.”
