William H. Penrose - Colonel   
Penrose, of the 15th, is Dead.
Colonel, and Brevet Brigadier-General William H. Penrose, U.S.A., retired, died on Saturday in Salt Lake City, Utah, where he has been living for several years. Veterans of the Civil War throughout the country and in the State especially, knew the gallant soldier. Upon the retirement of Colonel Samuel Fowler of Newton from the command of the Fifteenth New Jersey Regiment in April, 1863, Penrose was commissioned as colonel of volunteers and commissioned to the vacant command. He was afterward assigned to command the First Brigade, First Division, Sixth Army Corps, Army of the Potomac. He received wounds at the battle of Cedar Creek, Oct. 19, 1864, which put him out of active service for three months. Upon the mustering out of the volunteer service he returned to his old regiment in the regular army and served until 1896, when he reached the age limit. Since his retirement he has followed mining engineering. Colonel Penrose was warmly admired by the veterans of the Fifteenth Regiment, which was organized in Warren, Hunterdon and Sussex counties. He was present at their reunion in Washington a few years ago. Many survivors of this regiment are still living in this vicinity.
