Edward TOWNS       (ID #I36360)

(male)
Father: Edward TOWN (b. 12 SEP 1756, d. bef 1830)
Mother: Nancy MCDOUGALL (b. ABT 1775, d. aft 1850)

Family 1 : Eliza Ann HAYWARD (b. 01 DEC 1813, d. 08 AUG 1897)
  1.  Elizabeth TOWNS (b. abt 1831)
  2.  Caroline TOWNS (b. MAR 1833, d. 12 JUN 1916)
  3.  Mary Ann TOWNS (b. abt 1841)
  4.  Martha Ellen TOWNS (b. 19 FEB 1844, d. 11 JUN 1940)
  5. +William Wallace TOWNS (b. 19 JUN 1848)
  6.  Electa Adelaide TOWNS (b. 12 JUL 1853, d. 09 MAY 1931)

Most of this children were born in Canada, at least two in Clarke Township, Durham County, Ontario. The family seems to have left Canada about 1863, settling in Michigan (Sanilac Co.?). Although he was much older than most of the soldiers in the Civil War, some descendants say he served in Co. I, 3rd Michigan Volunteer Infantry, and died in a military hospital in Nashville, Tennessee after being wounded and captured in 1865. Eliza A. Towns apparently obtained a pension (certificate number 230327, file not yet examined). As unlikely as it seems, the pension file gives Eliza's maiden name, and the names of their six children, of which only two were under the age of 18.

An interesting account of the Town/Towns family was published in the newsletter of the Towne Family Association (Shirley Drury Patterson, 2005, "Edward Town and the McDougalls", About Towne, 25:64:71). In a personal communication, Shirley mentioned that a niece of the present Edward, Martha (Town) Marcy, born in 1842, provided detailed information about this family to Charles A. Towne, an early Towne researcher, apparently from family or bible records. The children of Edward Towns and Eliza Ann Hayward from these sources are Edward, Elizabeth, Caroline, Mary Ann, Martha, William Wallace, and Electa Adelaide (born in 1853, but on the 1861 census of Clarke Township, Durnam Co., Ontario, she is listed as Pheby, a fact that no one seems to have noticed or explained).

The Ontario census of 1842 shows Edward Towns in Darlington Township, Durham County (images 13 and 14 of 22, on FamilySearch.org). If we have decoded the columns correctly (not a simple matter, as the schedules are quite messy), he had been a resident of Ontario since about 1835 and had 7 children in the household. While there is no way to be certain that all of these children are in fact those of Edward and Eliza Ann, the census data suggest that at least 4 sons may have died before the 1860's—and there appears to be an older, unmarried woman in the household, over the age of 45, perhaps the mother of some of the older children. A John McDougall appears in the "supplement" pages (images 21 and 22) of the same schedule, but he appears to be from Scotland, age 21-30, with only 2 children, and had been a resident of Ontario since about 1834, thus apparently not our John McDougall.

The only citations of military service that we have seen that seem authentic are the following:

Towns, Edward. Enlisted in company I, (reorganized) Third Infantry, Sept. 23, 1864, at Pontiac, for 3 years, age 34. Mustered Sept. 23, 1864. Deserted at Stephenson, Ala., Jan. 17, 1865. (Record of Service of Michigan Volunteers in the Civil War 1861-1865, vol. 3., Kalamazoo, Mich., Ihling bros. & Everard, printers, 190-, p. 200).

General Index to Pension Files, 1861-1934 (images on Ancestry.com and FamilySearch.org, from National Archives microfilms) : Edward Towns, Co., I, 3rd Michigan Infantry, dependent widow Eliza A. Towns; filed 15 jun 1865, widow's claim, application no. 98,025, certificate no. 230,327. No other information noted on the index card. (We have not examined the original pension file and military service record.)

The only discrepant statement in the military records is that the soldier (some descendants call him "Civil War Ed") was age 34 when he enlisted. Could it be that he convinced the recruiter to falsify the record, so that the recruiter could make his quota and Civil War Ed could fight the rebels? Or, is the figure 34 simply a clerical error in the report published by the State of Michigan?

By 1865, Nashville had long been under the control of the Union forces, and at least 10 military hospitals had been established there. It might be that Edward Towns' unit lost track of him on 17 jan 1865, after which he ended up as a casualty in one of these hospitals, and that fact was never communicated to his unit.
