F/F/Fs Who Served in Kentucky 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.)

Flora, John Jiles    Co. H, 52nd Kentucky Volunteer Mounted Infantry (UNION)  Private

Alternate Name in USG Records:  Florid, John

(Information from S.B. Flora)

John was born in 1831 in Warren County, Kentucky and was the son of George Flora (1786-1858) and Permelia Rhodes ( ? – 1848).  [George was born in Virginia, a son of Nicholas Adolph Flohri from that immigrant ancestor’s first marriage].  He was mustered into service at Franklin, Simpson County, Kentucky on the 3rd March 1864 into Co. “H”, 52nd Kentucky Volunteer Mounted Infantry for one year.  He was mustered out of the Army on 11th March 1865 at Bowling Green, Warren County, Kentucky.  He died in 1912.

Unit History      (The Union Regiments of Kentucky, Vol 3, by Capt. Thos. Speed, Courier-Journal Job Printing, 1897, pgs 650-656 ) [I find some of the comments in this unit introduction very interesting and indicative of some of the less than savory types of incidents that probably occurred in the rather terrible guerrilla warfare that took place in Kentucky during the Civil War.]

“The 52nd Kentucky Mounted Infantry was organized under the authority of the Act of Congress dated February 7, 1863, authorizing the Government to raise 20,000 troops for the better defense of Kentucky. Company’s A, B, C, and E were mustered in at Scottsville, KY on September 10, 1863 and Company D on October 17, 1863. Company F was mustered in on November 12, 1863, and Company G December 21, 1863 at Franklin, KY. Company H, I, and K were mustered in on March 3, 1864 at Franklin, KY.”

“This regiment was raised for 12 months service and under the provisions of the Act, were to be employed within the limits of the State of Kentucky in repelling invasion, suppressing insurrections, and guarding and protecting the the public property. For the purpose of enabling it to cope more readily with the guerrillas that infested the State, it was mounted and stationed in the lower and central protion of KY and rendered efficient aid to the Government in protecting the line of communications with the Army at the front.”

“Being raised in a section of the country where the life of the Union man was constantly in jeopardy from the heartless guerrillas, many of the members of this organization had private grievances to correct that may have led them to commit excesses upon those receant Kentuckians who fostered the guerrillas and pointed out their homes for destruction. Still their services were efficient and appreciated by the Government they had sworn to defend.”

“In the many fights and skirmishes in which it engaged, the bearing of both officers and men sustained the gallant record so bravely won by all Kentucky troops during the Rebellion.”

“..March 23d, (1864) the 52nd was ordered by Gen. Hobson….to move from Scottsville to Bowling Green….April 19th it proceeded to Irvine, KY; April 30th, in the organization of the Dept. of the Ohio, the 52nd was in Col. Chas. S. Hansom’s brigade, in Hobson’s division. June 6th Col. Grider was sent with part of the 52nd … to Pound Gap to obstruct the passes.  Another portion of the regiment fought Morgan at Mt. Sterling, June 10th and at Cynthiana, June 12th… Immediately afterward, the Federal forces…including the 52d, pursued the enemy as far as the Cumberland river, moving a distance of 470 miles in 11 days…

” In July (1864) the 52d had returned from the eastern part of KY and was in the western part July 18th….In August the regiment was ordered to Uniontown …. August 21st a portion of the 52d was in Hopkinsville …. August 26th the 52d was ordered to Lexington. August 30th the 52d was ordered to Bowling Green …. It proceeded into Tennessee through Nashville. October 1st it was in Tullahoma, … operating against Forrest and Wheeler. In October it proceeded to Athens and Huntsville, Ala ….. December 5th it was again in Bowling Green and went into Western Kentucky to aide in resisting the invasion of the Confederates under Gen. Lyon. ”

“After the destruction of Gen. Hood’s army at Nashville, in December, 1864, the 52d was not so actively engaged and was mustered out of service in January and March, 1865, having made a splendid record as a useful and gallant regiment.”

WBFPhoto of William B. Flora some time after 1865

William was born to John W and Isabel Flora in Kentucky. At age 19 in 1863 he enlisted in the 51st KY Infantry (Union) the regiment not being able to be completed he was transferred to Co H 37th KY Mounted Infantry. William was promoted corporal. The regiment was sent to Cynthiana [Harrison County]  and Glasgow [Barren County] Kentucky, and was active along the Kentucky-Virginia border. The main action was a battle at Saltville, Virginia. William was detailed as the color bearer of the regiment. In 1864 he was discharged and returned home.

William B Flora wrote a Personal war sketch for his GAR [Grand Army of the Republic] Post in Paxton Illinois (he served as the Vice Commander of that post) in which he listed the regiment’s main activity [during the war] as patrolling against raids from Confederate “bushwhackers” (the Confederate raiders Morgan, Forrest and others were active in Kentucky [during the war]. His one major battle was the Battle of Saltville, in the western panhandle of Virginia. It was the Confederacy’s principal salt works and several mounted Union infantry regiments (including U.S. Colored units) rode from Kentucky and Ohio to try to take it out. They were defeated, and many of the wounded and captured Colored Troops were massacred.  He went out to Oklahoma after the war.  He was tough and served in a regiment which suffered many casualties.   William Flora lived long enough to ride in the Oklahoma land rush in 1889.

Official History of the 37th Kentucky Mounted Infantry (UNION) from The Union Regiments of Kentucky by Capt. Thomas Speed (1897): “The 37th Kentucky Volunteer Infantry (Mounted) was organized in the summer of 1863 in response to military operations in South Central Kentucky by Confederate guerillas. Companies A through C were mustered into United States Service on September 17, 1863. Companies D through G were mustered at the same place October 24, 1863.Company H was originally intended to join the 51st Kentucky Infantry, but was consolidated with the 37th at Covington, Kentucky on September 4th. The final two companies of I and K were sworn into service at Glasgow on December 21st and 22nd respectively. Right in the middle of the regiment’s initial organization, Col. Hughes led a Confederate force against the undermanned regiment on the night of the 6th of October. One hundred and forty-two men of the regiment were captured. Major Martin, the ranking officer on station, fought his way free of the encircling rebels and rallied the remaining companies. They pursued Col. Hughes and his precious cargo of Union soldiers and caught up to him just south of the town of Tompkinsville, retaking most of his men, horses, and weapons. The regiment largely back to strength, they marched to Columbia, Kentucky and joined the 13th Kentucky Cavalry for a movement to East Tennessee. Col. John Hunt Morgan, that famous Confederate raider, led his fast moving cavalry on a thrust into Kentucky in June of 1864. The 37th, along with other units, moved to stop his advance, and at the small town of Cynthiana broke Morgan’s command and released the prisoners he had taken. They then drove him from the state. Early in September of 1864 the 37th moved East to Saltville, Virginia and participated in the battle there in which their brigade commander, Col. Hanson, was wounded and captured. The 37th returned to Kentucky after the battles at Saltville and after safeguarding the state from partisans, its soldiers were discharged in December of 1864.”

In a related rather melancholic story, Vincent Flora (son of William B Flora) enlisted at age 22 in 1898 in Co L of the 3rd Illinois Infantry in Kankakee, Illinois (for the brief Spanish-American War?). While the Regiment was in Chattanooga, Tennessee Vincent became sick.  Doctors originally diagnosed typhoid, but it was really pneumonia. William and Mary went to see him and were with Vincent in Chattanooga when he died. They brought his body back to Paxton,  Illinois where Vincent’s funeral was one of the largest ever seen in the town.
