George Stanley Lockwood, Company H, 74th Illinois Infantry

My great-grandmother’s brother (on my father’s side) was at Franklin. His name was George Stanley LOCKWOOD.

George enlisted in the 74th Illinois which was mustered in at Winnebago County, Illinois.

The 74th Illinois was part of Opdycke’s Brigade. George was in Company H. He was born 27 Sep 1843 and died 25 May 1888.

The 74th Illinois engaged in battles at: Perryville, Stone’s River (Murfreesboro), Tullahoma Campaign, Chickamauga, Missionary Ridge (Chattanooga), Atlanta Campaign, Spring Hill, Franklin, Nashville – It is amazing to me that anyone could have survived all those battles.

My great-great grandmother’s second husband (on my mother’s side) was also at Franklin.

His name was Washington J. Smith. He was in the 8th Iowa Cavalry Regiment. Washington was born 28 Aug 1836 and died 4 Mar 1903.
