Unit & Rank:  148th, Co. H 

Death:  1864  Washington 

Cause/Notes:  Taken sick at City Point.  Died in hospital after discharged from regiment.

Addenda -  TRUMAN, Haze (Hayes Truman) - Belpre Twp.  His Name should be HAYES TRUMAN. He is often mistakenly listed as Truman Haze because of an error by C. E. Dickinson in his "History of Belpre, Ohio," 1920. He transposed the first and last Names and changed the spelling.  Hayes Truman was the first husband of my great grandmother's sister, Catherine Sanders "Kit" Clark Truman of Belpre Township.  Hayes contracted tuberculosis during the war and died in 1864 in Washington D. C. and is buried in Arlington National Cemetery. The Trumans' three-year-old son, Frank, also died in 1864 of scarlet fever, and another son, William Austin Truman, died at the age of 24 in 1884. Aunt Kit remarried, moved to Illinois and had a second family. Jacob Clark of Belpre Township, killed at Cross Keys, Virginia, was Kit's brother. A lot of tragedy for one woman to bear. Happily, her two daughters from the second marriage lived to ripe old ages, including one who passed the 100-year mark. -- Submitted by Shelby Ruch
