Name:  Murphy, William

Unit & Rank:  6th Kentucky Cavalry   Private

Death:  1863

Cause/Notes:  Shot through the head

Addenda - MURPHY, William  (Fairfield Twp.)  This Name was very hard to do research on in trying to determine WHERE he died. According to Williams' History of Wash. Co., Ohio, he enlisted in 1861 as a Private, and was with the 6th Kentucky Cavalry, died 1863, shot through the head.  According to the information provided by the National Park Service, Civil War Soldiers & Sailors System, there were 2 William Murphy's that was in 2 different 6th Kentucky Calvaries.  One was Union, the other Confederate.  When doing a search on him in the American Civil War Database, the only William Murphy that inlisted in 1861, and killed in 1863 gives this info: William Murphy:  Enlistment Date July 27, 1861;  Side Served: Union;  Service Record: Promoted to Full Corporal (Acting Color Corporal). Enlisted as a Corporal on July 27, 1861.  Enlisted in Co. I, 5th Infantry Reg. Kentucky on Sept. 9, 1861.  Killed on Nov. 25, 1863 in Missionary Ridge, TN.  There were no William Murphy's in 6th Kentucky Cavalry on the Confederate side that was killed in the Civil War. This same William Murphy is buried Section C, Site 1153 at the Chattanooga National Cem. in Chattanooga, TN.  The date of death and rank matches the one in the Civil War Database, but is listed as "Infantry" not Cavalry. (Dept. of Veterans Affairs National Cemetery Administration)  I am not sure that this is the same one from Fairfield Twp., but this is the closest match to the William Murphy from Wash. Co., Ohio that I could find.

Unit & Rank:  196th, Co. F   Private

Death:  Apr. 27, 1865

Cause/Notes:

Ohio, he died on Apr 27, 1865 of Typhoid fever, but did not give the place of death.  Died on June 26,1865 in Cumberland, MD.  I believe that this date is an error.  Jacob Pennock of Co. F. 196 OVI is buried at Site 1143 in Antietam National Battlefield Site in Sharpsburg, MD.  His date of death is listed as April 26, 1864.  Date of Interment is unknown.
