Pennsylvania Civil War VeteransLt. Eugene D. Dunton

Eugene D. Dunton - Lieutenant, Adjutant, 95th Regiment Pennsylvania Volunteers  Killed at the Storming of St. Marye’s Heights (Near Fredericksburg) Virginia, May 3rd, 1863.

Joseph W. Dunton - Discharged on Surgeon's certificate, infection of the eyes, July 21, 1861. Dunton, 20, was a farmer from Avoca, N. Y., employed near Columbus at time of enlistment. Thomson-Rauch does not list this man. Bates gives his date of muster into service as Aug. 14, 1861. Apparently, after Dunton's medical discharge, he re-enlisted on that date in the Raftsmen's Guard (by then Co. D, 1st Rifles) and was again medically discharged, Sept. 19, 1861.

Stephen B. Dunton - Discharged on Surgeon's certificate, "consumptive tendency with general debility," Aug. 5, 1861. Dunton, 24, was a farmer and wagon maker from Avoca, N. Y., who enlisted in Columbus. The 1860 Census of Warren Co. finds him in the borough of Columbus working as a cleric and living in the household of Henry Saggs, merchant. Thomson­Rauch, confusing his service record with that of Joseph W. Dunton, musters him into the Raftsmen's Guard Aug. 14, 1861 ; Bates omits Stephen B. Dunton. This man who was unfit for soldiering lived to a great old age in Penn Yan, N. Y., probably outliving every other Raftsman. He died in 1934, only three years short of his hundredth birthday.30

He was soon after assigned to duty in the Invalid Corps stationed at Washington, until December, when he joined his command, near Petersburgh, and remained in active service up to Lee's surrender, near Appomattox, and was promoted to rank of corporal. In the engagement at the Wilderness his artillery horses were all shot and all of his drivers wounded, and they were obliged to abandon their guns. After the surrender, in April, 1865, they were ordered to report at Washington, and on the march accidentally cut his foot severely, and narrowly escaped the loss of his foot by gangrene getting into the wound.
