Thomas H Brown - Musician   
born January 1850
died March 17, 1916
son of James P. and Hannah Johnson Brown of Brown's Ridge in Buchannan County VA census 1860. Just above Richlands and Indian (Cedar Bluff), VA.

Had uncle Patton J. Brown, his father's younger brother, who served in the 16th VA Cavalry Co. C Jonathan Hankins Co. from Indian, VA.

Married Olivia McGlothlin, daughter of Robert and
Rebecca Ann Correl McGlothlin, after the war March 2, 1870 on Robert McGlothlin's Farm.

She was the sister to John C. McGlothlin 1st Corp. of the 45th VA Inf. who died in Wytheville Camp Jackson July 19,1861 and James P. McGlothlin of Jonathan Hankins Co. C 16th VA Cavalry, who served along with his uncle Patton J. Brown.
Sometime around 1870's he moved to Boyd Co. Ky With Father in Law Robert, and Brother's in Law James P. McGlothlin and Tolbert 'Bird' Elswick.
'Bird' Elswick married Olivia's and James' older sister Margaret McGlothlin and Bird also served in the 16th VA Cavalry co C along with Patton Brown and James P. McGlothlin.
They moved to Ky after the war because there was nothing left of the farm they had in Tazewell. (maybe they lost all they had because of the reconstruction laws.)

45TH VIRGINIA INFANTRY REGIMENT, CONFEDERATE STATES ARMY
(1861 - 1865)

BROWN, THOMAS: Co. A. Enl. 2/9/64 at Hayters Gap. Present on final roll.

I have information that listed a Thomas Brown age 14 or so enlisted on Musician Rolls (Drummer?). This enlistment and location would be the same Name, general location and age of our Thomas Brown.

It is quite possible that Thomas after reaching his 14th birthday after January 1864 walked from his Grandfather's Homestead in Richlands down Russell county through Hayter's Gap to enlist in the Winter Camps at Russell Co.on February 9,1864. Because of his age they would have put him in the Musician corps where 'young men' would be placed usually as 'signal drummers' until they reached the age of 16.

Introduction to the Roster

This roster contains the names of 1,947 men who are known to have served with the 45th Virginia Regiment. The primary source used to compile a roster for any Virginia unit is 'The Compiled Military Service Records.' This is part of Record Group 109 in the National Archives, Washington, D.C. The task of compiling the Confederate service records began in 1903 and took 26 years to complete. Grouped under each man's name are cards containing information taken from muster rolls, pay records, hospital rolls, and prison and parole records, together with other information such as letters and requests for supplies and clothing.

Bethel, Elizabeth and Scott, Craig R. Preliminary inventory of the War Department collection of Confederate records (Record Group 109). Washington, D.C. : National Archives and Records Administration, 1994.
CD 3026 .A3 no.101 1994

The month-to-month status of an individual soldier is best obtained from the muster rolls. These rolls were taken every two months and stated whether or not the soldier was present or absent. Unfortunately the records that survived the war for the 45th Virginia are very poor. Muster rolls are available for the first year of the war without gaps. In 1862 the only record that exists is a field return dated July 1862. There are no rolls available for 1863 and the final roll that exists for the 45th Virginia was taken in April 1864. The absence of these rolls causes the record of the individual soldiers to be very incomplete.

Since the heaviest fighting of the war for the regiment took place in the summer of 1864, many of those who were killed or wounded during that period have no record of the event.

The lack of muster rolls also makes it difficult to determine if a soldier deserted the regiment or was simply late in returning to camp on one of the few rolls that exist. It is possible that a soldier's available record could end in July 1862 as AWOL when he in fact he later returned to the unit and fought through the remainder of the war.

Due to the poor quality of the compiled service records much information had to be taken from postwar records. When such is the case the entry for that soldier identifies the source. Postwar records include county histories, pension applications, cemetery readings, postwar rosters, and information supplied by descendants of the veterans.

p828 thru p830 summary: Judy McLaughlin affidavits of 17 February 1848 and 10 June 1858 by Judith McLaughlin, widow of John, deceased, late of Tazewell County, VA. She knows that few persons spell the name McLaughlin, as it is commonly spelled McGlothlin or McGlathlin. For example, in the 6th pension census in 1840, the Marshall spelled her husband's name McGlotholin using two 'o's' - but that her surname in her husband's pension application declaration being spelled McGlathlin or McGlothlin arose from the fact that few persons spell the name the same way. Judith explicitly stated in her affidavit that those who prepared the pension application affidavits for him were not familiar with the correct spelling, which is McLAUGHLIN. She stated that long term neighbors of theirs were George Steele, James Kindrick and John Brown. (All from Richlands, Cedar Bluff, VA)

Son of My Ancestral Grandparents..
Son of Robert Emmit McGlothlin and Rebecca 'Polly' Ann Correl of Indian (Cedar Bluff), Tazewell VA. Born cir.1843 died July 31, 1861.

McClothlan* John C. 45th VA Inf Co. C* Enl. 5/29/61 at Wytheville Promoted to Corporal He died in Wytheville 7/19/61. ~ J. L. Scott ~ The Virginia Regimental Histories Series ~ 45th Virginia Infantry
* as the name and Company appear in the Book

This entry in the mentioned book seems to be in error.

I went to Virginia Tech Library and looked up the Microfilm of Compiled Regimental Service Records of Virginia Confederates Group 109 of the National Archives and found John McGlothlan.
The General Index card has only one John C. McGlothlan Co. A 45 Virginia Infantry.
Obviously the transcription for the foregoing book is in error.
His Service Records indicate that he enlisted as a Private and was promoted to
1st Corporal. (posthumously?)

No record of his promotion date is given.

....Somebody obviously thought something of John McGlothlan. Someone was paid for for his services at his new Rank posthumously. In the earlier stages of the War for Moral purposes officers allowed the enlisted men to elect those Sgt. and Corporal's that they would follow orders from. A Practice carried over from local militias allowing men from a locality to elect men to the rank of Officer for Capt of a company.

There was a Regimental Return Muster record that repeated his death date of July 19, 1861.

December 20, 1860 South Carolina voted to secede the Union.
Virginia Governor John Letcher called a special session of the Virginia General Assembly January 7, 1861, to determine the commonwealths’ role in the events that were moving the states toward armed conflict.
As the next several months passed it became clear that if the union was to dissolve it would not be due to the actions of Virginia. Virginia's peace conference to heal 'dissention's then prevailing' failed and the north and south were destined to war.
April 12, 1861 Southern Guns fired on Fort Sumter in Charleston Harbor South Carolina. Three days Later President Lincoln, who was not elected by the South by the popular vote, called for 75,000 troops to be organized to suppress the rebellious Southern States.
Governor Letcher of Virginia replied to Lincoln's request for Virginia Troops. A portion of the letter reads:
' In reply to this communication, I have only to say that the militia of Virginia will not be furnished to the powers of Washington ... You have chosen to inaugurate civil War, and having done so, we will meet in a spirit as determined as the administration has exhibited toward the south.'

April 17, 1861 five days after the firing on Fort Sumter,SC., the Virginia Session Convention voted for an Ordinance of Session. Virginia was a War and was ill prepared. The troops that were organized were local militia, most of them poorly armed and clothed in uniforms of their own design. Many of the Militia companies had been organized for almost two years since John Brown's raid on Harper’s ferry in October 1859.
Governor Letcher's first action was to muster troops in Strategic areas of the State.
Southwest Virginia answered the call to arms and the companies began to organize.
Former Virginia Governor John B. Floyd, from Thornspring, Pulaski VA, husband of Lettia Preston of Smithfield, Blacksburg VA., was commissioned Brigadier General on May 23, 1861 and was assigned the task of defending the western counties of Virginia.
Gen. Floyd who also served as the Federal Secretary of War in President Buchanan's administration was accused by the north of transferring arms to the south from the northern arsenals during his tenure.
(John B. Floyd and Lettia Preston also settled in Burkes Garden in Tazewell Co. on lands originally belonging to Col. William Christian, and then her father Col. William Preston. This is where he received his orders to raise and lead the militia to Wytheville. Lettia Preston Floyd's will is recorded in Tazewell County Courthouse.)

The troops organized in Southwest Virginia were ordered to Wytheville, where men could drill and the companies could be formed into regiments.

The army was organized in Wytheville due to the town's central location and easy access to the new 'Virginia and Tennessee Railroad' completed in 1856.

Henry Heth, a west Point Graduate of 1847, was ordered to Wytheville to assist Gen. Floyd. The muster of Companies and assignment to regiments was apparently a simple task. Heth wrote that ' as companies reported for duty I mustered them into service.... when ten companies reported, a regiment was formed, and it received its number from Richmond.'
Can you imagine the number of men that were mustering in the Valley at Wytheville? Most companies consisted of the average of 90-100 men. When the 45th was mustered into service Richmond already had 44 other infantry assignments and more would be assigned to infantry after the 45th, including the confusing 45th Battalion Infantry, which people mistaken for the 45th Virginia Infantry, Yes Virginia, there were two 45th's.
Muster rolls show that the ten companies that formed the 45th Virginia were all mustered into service on May 29, 1861. The Ten companies consisted of approx. 900 men not counting the administrative ranks that were to support the 45th. They had a full complement of Quartermasters, Commissaries, Cooks, Ordnance, Surgeon Corps, Chaplin Corps, and Musician Corps.
The Ten Companies were as follows
Co. A Floyd Guard From Tazewell Co.,
Co. B Mount Airy (Rural Retreat VA) and Readys from Wythe Co.,
Co. C Grayson Rifles from Grayson Co.,
Co. D Minute Men from Wythe Co.,
Co. E Rough and Readys from Carroll Co.,
Co. F Sharpshooters From Bland Co.,
Co. G West Augusta Rifles from Tazewell Co.,
Co. H Tazewell Rangers from Tazewell Co.,
Co. I Reed Island Rifles from Carroll Co.,
Co. K Tazewell Boys from Tazewell Co.

The average recruit in the 45th was from a farm background and their average age was just less than 24.5 years.

Heth wrote that he 'taught them, or tried to teach them, how to make out their muster rolls, issued to them tents, knapsacks, etc.
Night Schools for the officers were organized, and tactics given them to study, but I found that some could not read, so schools were abandoned.'
According to the 'Compiled Military Service Records' of Confederate Virginians part of Record Group 109 in the National Archives, Washington DC, a John McClothlan Enlisted in Co. A of the 45th on May 29. 1861 and was promoted to 1st Corporal.

This has to be our John McGlothlin. Family sources said he died in Wytheville Virginia in the Civil War and the following information might go to substantiate that fact.
First this John McGlothlin was listed with Co. A from Tazewell. A couple of facts should be noted.

Maybe he had shown some merit while at Camp Jackson during drill in order to receive the Promotion.

A look at the actual archival records will help.
This would align John McGlothlin to the proper Company from Tazewell.
When the new recruits of the 45th Virginia came to Wytheville they were examined by Doctor Hobson Clark. Those recruits pronounced fit for duty began to drill at Camp Jackson.
Many of their lessons were 'hard learned'.
James S. Peery from Indian, VA Co. A Floyd's Tazewell Floyd's Guard wrote in a June 26 letter that:
'... several dead bodies have passed down that was killed accidentally. I think four passed down yesterday that was shot by sentinel ... one of our sentinals shot at a private the other night.... the sentinal ordered him to halt, he replied he was going through and ran by, the sentinal shot at him running but did not hit him, he was very much frightened.'
The men were soon introduced to what would become one of the main hazards of the war.
Shortly after the regiment was mustered disease began to spread through the camp. At least 70 others from the regiment met the same fate before 1861 came to an end.
Due to the close unsanitary conditions and the low immune systems of men unaccustomed to living in large groups, disease spread easily through the early military encampments.

On July 10, Gen. Floyd ordered Col. Heth to ready the 45th to move to the Kanawha Valley. The quartermaster furnished transportation on the 'Virginia and Tennessee rails' to Salem, Va. The men were told to make ready three days rations.
On the 12th of July the 45th began to move toward Covington, VA after taking railcars on the 'Virginia and Tennessee' to Salem the men were marched west over the mountains.
The regiment reached Camp Bee in Alleghany County near Sweet Springs, where the men waited for the remainder of Floyd's troops, the 45th, to arrive.
The numerous diseases that had plagued the regiment required nearly 200 of the 900 recruits to be left behind when the 45th Virginia left Camp Jackson.

Sergeant Joseph B. Cox wrote home concerning the impending move and what the others hoped would be the results of their first campaign:
'... I am coming home if I live if no sooner I will come home when my year is out if I dont stay one weak I hope that we can kill the damned Yankees all in half that time....'

Again it must have been an impressive sight, almost Religious zeal, to look out at camp and see the throngs of men mustered together for one cause, to protect the boundaries of Virginia soil that would edify and motivate such a feeling among those in camp.

Floyds' Men, Co. A the 45th, under Col. Henry Heth command finally 'saw the Elephant', the phrase used during the war to denote a soldier's first combat.
Troops met Federal Skirmishers at Tyree's Tavern near Big Sewell Mountain on August 12, 1861.

Corporal John C. McClothlan (McGlothlin) however did not ever see combat per se.
Archival Confederate Records indicate he died at Wytheville July 19, 1861. He was one of the groups of 200 men that were left behind.
Did he die of Sickness is not known. Most other muster records tell if the men died because of sickness.
Did he die of wounds from the 'lessons hard learned' of Perry's letter, during preparation of combat maneuvers.
A look into the Archival records might help answer.

All we know is that Corporal John C. McGlothlan of the 45th died on July 19, 1861. Record Group 109 does not tell us what he died from.
Traditional Family History reports that John McGlothlin died at Wytheville during the Civil war and list his death date as July 31, 1861.

The events time and place are too close to ignore the fact that this was our John McGlothlin.

Some of the foregoing account was taken mostly ver batem from the book by J. L. Scott ~ The Virginia Regimental Histories Series ~ 45th Virginia Infantry and was used here to help enlighten family history, with added perspective about John McGlothlan based on National Archival Records interlined by Rick Brown September 7, 2004

Camp Jackson, Wythe County, VA
According to the book Wythe County Virginia During War Between the States 1861-1865,
'Camp Jackson was located in the west end of Wytheville, north of the 'Virginia and Tennessee Railroad tracks', now the Norfolk and Southern Railroad. It extended to the Raleigh and Grayson Turnpike, presently Main Street, and occupied several acres on land that was referred to as the 'old fairground.' Its easterly and westerly expansion was from 18th street to 26th Street.

There they was to try to keep the Union army of General George Crook from suceeding their task of burning down the New River bridge near Radford,Va. The 45th was placed to the far right and seen the heaviest fighting .At one time the fighting was so fierce that the gun blast set the dry leaves on the ground on fire and the Union soilders was pinned down by the heavy gun fire ,that some of the Union soilders were burned alive . Amanition finally ran out for the 45th Va, so they had to use bannets or hand to hand combat ,with using knives and fists . This was said to be one of the bloodiest battles of southwest,Va. that the creek they fought next to ,''Back Creek ' flowed red from the blood that was shed.

DENNIS S. HOWERY - Private   
PVT. DENNIS S. HOWERY, SR. C.S.A., CO. K. 45TH VA. INF.

His life began in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Southwestern, Virginia, in Floyd County, June 1826. His father, Michael Howery was a primitive Baptist minister. He was born in Botetourt County, Virginia, on October 15, 1795. His mother was Elenor Howery, formerly Miss Sheridan. She was born in Franklin County, Virginia on May 8, 1786. Dennis was born in Floyd County, Virginia, but later moved to Tazewell County, Virginia. He ventured into Tazewell County in the late 1840's, either to search for employment or to visit other Howery's who already lived there. He worked as a carpenter, building cabinets, houses or anything he could. He did not know it yet but he would later meet and fall in love with his first and only love. Her name was Mary Ann Six, a native of Tazewell and the daughter of William and Mary Six. They lived in Thompson Valley and operated a rather large farm for a mountain county such as Tazewell. So it goes, they married and Dennis took on farming as well as carpentry. The record of the event is recorded at the Tazewell County Courthouse in Tazewell, Virginia. It reads as follows: Dennis Howery married in Tazewell County on March 7, 1855 to Mary Ann Six. It lists the parents of Dennis Howery as Michael and Elenor Howery, and the parents of Mary as William and Mary Six. It states the birth place of Dennis as being Floyd County, Virginia and the birth place of Mary Ann Six as Tazewell County, Virginia. It futher states the broom as a cabinet maker. They were married by David Young.
Everything looked bright for the Howery family and by 1860 they were expecting the birth of their third son which was Reese W. Howery.
Storm clouds gathered and in 1860 the country was divided. There was for Dennis, like thousands of other Southerners but one choice, that being, to fight for their families, their homeland and the ability to govern themselves. After all they were being invaded by federal forces which were garnishing their very rights that the constitution had provided them. They were backed into a corner and felt their very existence may be at stake. Dennis did as his brothers, Wilson, Michael Jr., Isaac and Caleb and answered the call to arms.
Dennis served a total of four years in the Confederate States of America Army. He last enlisted as a private in Company K of the 45th Virginia Infantry. His enlistment with the 45th Virginia Infantry began on January 27, 1863. He was sworn into Confederate service by Capt. Yost at the Tazewell Courthouse. He was listed on a muster roll of privates on April 1, 1864. He fought in several battles like White Sulphur Springs on August 26-27, 1863. He managed to survive at Cloyds Farm on May 9-10, 1864, where the men of the 45th were engaged in brutal hand-to-hand combat with the yankees. He fought a good fight only to be captured at Piedmont, Virginia, on June 5, 1864, by General Hunter's forces. He appeared on a list of prisoners under guard at Staunton, Virgina, on June 8, 1864. He arrived at Camp Morton, Indianapolis, Indiana prison for southern prisoners of war, on June 21, 1864. He would suffer hunger, humiliation, filthy living conditions and possibly the object of cruel games by the hands of his captors. By the grace of God, he survived and was paroled on February 26, 1865, at Camp Morton, Indianapolis, Indiana and forwarded to City Point, Virginia, via Baltimore, Maryland, for exchange. Having spent eight months in a northern hellhole, Dennis was in mortal need of medical attention. He was on the register of Wayside Hospital in Farmville, Virginia on March 15, 1865. He recovered and after being released from the hospital found his way home.
As could be imagined his wife and family were very happy to have him home again. His son Reese W. Howery was born at the beginning of the war and was now five years old. Dennis now turned his thoughts towards the care of his family, although he would never forget his service in the Confederate Army. It would be tough, the reconstruction years would prove to almost rival the war itself. There were yankees who would profit from southern suffering and others who wanted to punish the south more than could be imagined.
Somehow the Howery's, like so many other mountain families survived the nasty foul yankees, despite their efforts to snuff out southern pride, it still exists today.
Dennis Howery and his family was on the census of 1870, recorded at the post office at Knob, Virginia, located in Maiden Springs Township. Recorded as follows: Dennis Howery, age 44, Mary A., age 34, Michael, age 14, William age 13, Reese W., age 10, Andrew J., age 8, Polly A. age 6, Dennis S. Jr. age 4 and Edward J., age 1.
Dennis was listed on a Roster of Ex-Confederate Soldiers and Sailors, which was the census of soldiers of Tazewell County, Virginia. It was made by L.H. Laird, Commissioner of the revenue, under provisions of Act of January 25, 1898. It listed Dennis Howery, age 71, as a Pvt. in CO. K 45th Virginia Infantry, Enlisting 1861, time in service 4 years. Dennis was on the Maiden Spring, Tazewell Co. Census of June 15th, 1900, stating that his birth was in June of 1826. He was age 73.
He died at his home in Thompson Valley, Tazewell County, Virginia in 1902. He rests there along with his wife, Mary and some of their children.
Bobby Gene Howery, Jr. along with his father Bobby Sr., and grandfather Luther James Howery, not to forget Bobby Jr.'s children placed a Confederate headstone on the grave of PVT. DENNIS S. HOWERY, CO. K. - 45TH VIRGINIA INFANTRY, C.S.A. It was placed there on June 23, 1993.
