[3--064] Department of the Interior, Pencion (sic) Office ~ Washington, D. C. dated July 19, 1884

Sir,
A claim, No. 300, 328, has been filed in this Office by Nancy E. Sams, as Widow of Asa W. Sams, who was a Private in Co. “K,” 5th Reg’t., U.S. (Rebel) Vols., and is alleged to have died at Camp Wardwell - 1866. Will you please to furnish with the return of this Circular, a copy of such evidence as may be in your possession relative to the date of the Soldier’s last payment Report of the Abs. inclosed (sic).
Very respectfully,
Wm. W. Danstery, Commissioner
The Second Auditor, Treasury Department

§ § §

Asa W. Sams' U.S. Army records show that he was 5 feet 11 1/2' tall, had blue eyes, brown hair, fair complexion and that his occupation was farmer.
In a U.S. Army Certificate of Disability For Discharge dated March 9, 1866 and signed by Asa W. Sams' Commanding Officer, Captain R.D. Palmer, the following is part of a statement made by Captain Palmer.
'During the last two months said soldier has been unfit for duty for '60' days. 'By reason of Hernia which has physically disabled him to such an extent as to render him totally unfit for Service.' On that same certificate, Acting Surgeon in Charge, D. G. Wilson, states: I certify that I have carefully examined the said 'Asa W. Sams' of Captain Palmer's Company and find him incapable of performing the duties of a soldier because of 'Inguinal Hernia which has totally unfitted him for active service. The said Hernia was contracted in the service.
In a War Department, Adjutant General's Office document, it is stated in part that he 'was ordered to rejoin his reg't July 10, '66 from Ft. Morgan, C.T. failed to rejoin his reg't, and investigation fails to discover what became of him.''
In an untitled document handwritten and signed by Justice of the Peace Lyle Carpenter in the state of Kentucky, County of Laurel and dated Aug 5 1884, he states, in part, as follows: 'John W. Hall who Being Duly Sworn depose & says that the Last Letter he Received from Asa W. SAMS was writen (sic) at Collorado (sic) Hospital and he stated in his letter as follows, that his papers for discharge had come back disapproved and was ordered to Join his Command and was about a hundred miles through a very Dangerous Rout'…….

§ § §

Notations found on various said NARA documents show the following:
1. Asa W. Sams was assigned the duty of Hospital Steward/
Acting Ward Master at Camp Wardwell upon his appointment to 1st Sergeant on April 18,1866.
2. Camp Wardwell, Colorado Territory, was renamed Ft. Morgan on June 23, 1866.
3. A Pay Department document dated June 5, 1866 shows that, on that date, Asa W. Sams was 'paid in full from Feb 28 1866 to April 30 1866.'
4. A Hospital Muster Roll of U.S.A. Post Hospital, Ft. Morgan, Colorado Territory, indicates that Asa W. Sams was returned to duty July 10, 1866.
5. U.S. Army Muster Roll, Fort Leavenworth, KS, for 'Jany & Feby, 1866;' 'Asa W. Sams' Company K, 5 Reg't U.S. Vols. Present or absent ….'absent.'
Remarks: 'Resigned position as 1st Sgt on Jany 1, 1866. Sick in hospital Camp Wardwell, C.T. since Jany 1, 1866. Promoted from Private April 18, 1866.'

Among Sams researchers, it was thought for a period of about thirty years that Asa Washington Sams died somewhere in Indian Territory after he was absent for Muster, listed above in Number 5 of the NARA notes. Asa Washington Sams has been found alive and well long after his hospitalization in Camp Wardwell, Colorado Territory. He went to Colorado and married three more times, after leaving his wife and five children in North Carolina.
I also have Asa's obituary, considered 'THE find' of the last three decades. I want to personally thank everyone for their generous time and effort to 'bring Asa Washington Sams finally home to rest. The obituary is found in The Telluride Journal Newspaper (Colorado) dated 30 Mar 1911 on page 4.

Asa Washington Sams is my Great Great Grandfather.
