John H. Bartlett - Private   
In a letter written by L. to the newspaper dated -

“Newbern, N.C. March 31st, 1862.
“… In the hospital appropriated to the wounded in this city, two men died on Saturday last from injuries received in the recent battle. One, John Bartlett, [Bartlett, 24th Mass. Infantry, died of wounds in an aid station near Newbern, N.C. March, 1862. 'Bartlett, John H. — Priv. — Res. Holyoke; 18; farmer; enl. Sept. 30, 1861 ; must. Oct. 2, 1861 wounded March 14, 1862, Newbern, N. C.; died of wounds, March 29, 1862, Newbern, N. C.] from Holyoke, belonged to the 24th Mass.; and the other, Willard Steere, [Private, D, March 29, 1862, died of wounds received at Newberne, N.C. Gunshot wound] from Burrillville, R.I., belonged to the 4th Regiment from that State. They were both great sufferers, and while everything was done for them that the nature of their wounds admitted, it was a cause of congratulation when death came to their relief. Our other wounded men, with few exceptions, are in a hopeful condition – many of them in a far more promising state than the Surgeons dared a few days ago to hope.”

“War Correspondence.
In our Saturday’s issue we made mention of the death of Lieut. Wm. Thorne, of Co. F, 24th Mass. Vols., formerly engaged in the Photographic business in this town. Since then we have received a letter from an officer in the regiment, speaking in terms of commendation of Lieut. Thorne, from which we make the following extract:
‘At the outbreak of the Rebellion he enlisted in the 24th Regt. Mass. Vols., and was at once appointed Sergeant. Rising by various gradations from Third to First and then Orderly Sergeant, he was for some time in command of the Company, and as soon as a vacancy occurred he was nominated as Lieut. by his Commanding Officer. At the Battle of New Berne, in March 1862, he displayed marked bravery, and in all the battles in which the 24th Mass. Were engaged he was always on hand, and ever in the front. During the long and arduous siege of Fort Wagner Lieut. Thorne was every third night in the trenches, and was always the same, cheerful and quiet. Lieut. Thorne was in command of his Company on picket, during the late advance, and was sitting behind the entrenchments, when a sharpshooter stationed in a tree, fired the shot, which entered his breast, and descending, caused a fatal wound. He lived but a few days, and died without pain.
Would that the Country had more such men.’”
