James B. Ireland - Private   
Private James B. Ireland (ca. 1829 - 1897) served in Company E of the 29th Wisconsin,under the Company Command of Joshua A. Stark and Executive Officer, Charles E. Eggleston.

James was wounded May 1st, 1863. He was engaged in battle at the Battle of Port Gibson-Sabine Cross Roads during the siege of Vicksburg. He was taken to Magnolia Church where James documented in his pension file, “I remained a few days when I was removed to the General Hospital at Grand Gulf. I remained here a few weeks when I was returned to my Regimental Hospital near Vicksburg, the ball that wounded popped in at my side and lodged in my back.”

Later in his life he claimed to the War Department Pension Agency that he suffered from a fractured breast bone from a passing cavalryman’s horse. However, the War Department noted in the pension file that there was no record or treatment of this in his service discharge. Simply, there was no satisfying evidence for the wound and the pension increase application was dismissed.

The wound that James suffered in his back, troubled him the rest of his life. He had great pain from stooping, standing and walking. He applied several times for pension increases but was never awarded an increase in pension. He died a poor man because he was unable to do manual labor. His wife and daughter helped to make ends meet by taking in laundry.

This man lived in Courtland, Columbia Co., Wisconsin when the Civil War started. He was fair haired man with a sandy complexion and blue eyes. He stood about 5''9''. He also lived in New Hampton, Chicksaw Co., Iowa; Big Spring, Dixon, Co., Nebraska and finally lived in Centerville, Turner/Lincoln Co., South Dakota.

On June 29, 1854, at Benton, Luzerne Co., PA, he was married to Miss Rhoda A. Hartson in Pennsylvania. The were both born in Pennsylvania.

Their known children (still researching) were:

Almira E. Ireland - married Walter C. Hinkley in 1879

Mathias Hammes - Private   
I was given two middle names, the first being my maternal great great grandfather's given name, and the second being his surname. It may sound cheesy (at least, it kinda does to me) but I feel a certain amount of sentimental attachment to him because of this.
