DANIEL STALLARD, who is a veteran
of the late war, with an honorable record for bravery and devotion to
the cause of his country, won in some of the hardest fought battles of
the Rebellion, is a very successful business man of Dyersville, and was
born in Geneva, Switzerland, August 5, 1840. There is something of a romance
connected with the early life of our subject, his real name being Pasture,
but his father dying when he was a mere lad, his mother married a man
who bore the name of George Stallard, and he assumed that name. Some time
after their marriage Mr. and Mrs. Stallard went to England to live, leaving
our subject with an aunt who afterward came to America, when he was eight
years of age. She settled in Brooklyn, where the mother of our subject
had located some time previous. Later he went to Oneida County, New York,
but being compelled to fight his own way through life he soon turned his
face toward the setting sun, and settled at Elgin, Ill., where he worked
at the harness trade. In the year 1856 he removed to Dyersville, where
he continued at this occupation till the breaking out of the late Civil
On the 21st day of August, 1862, Daniel Stallard was enrolled in Company
E, of the Twenty-first Iowa Infantry, as a private and was mustered in
at Dubuque. Soon after the regiment was sent south to Benton Barracks
at St. Louis, thence to Rollo, the same state, and from there to Houston,
Tex., where they spent the winter. The following spring they started for
Springfield, Mo., to reinforce the troops at that place and on the way
participated in the battle of Woods Forks, where they fought the rebel
forces under Marmaduke and Price. This brave command of nine hundred men
held their lines against the enemy of more than five thousand, after which
they made a forced march to Lebanon and then a distance of sixty miles
to Houston, Mo., taking them thirty hours. It is said on good authority
that during this march our subject absolutely went to sleep as he continued
to march. Soon afterward they started for the Ozark Mountains, under Brigadier-General
Davidson of the Second Brigade, Second Division. We will not attempt to
follow him through all his hardships, but next find him at Vicksburg.
Later, at Fort Gibson, he was struck by a piece of shell in the right
arm, while supporting a battery, but after having his wound dressed, he
again took his place in the ranks, participating in the battles of Champion
Hills, Baker's Creek, Black River Bridge and the Siege of Vicksburg. Our
subject was on the Red River expedition and while on picket duty at St.
Charles was taken sick and sent to the hospital at that place. Soon afterward
he was granted a furlough home and was discharged on account of disability,
June 16, 1865, at Mound City,
On his return home Mr. Stallard engaged in the harness business on his
own account, in which pursuit he has successfully continued ever since.
Two years later he was united in marriage with Miss Lucy Pimm, who was
of English extraction. Mr. and Mrs. Stallard adopted a son, who died when
eight years of age. Our subject's aged mother is now a member of his household.
He has been a lifelong Republican in politics and is a prominent and leading
Grand Army man. He also belongs to the Knights of Pythias and the Masonic
fraternity, having been Senior Warden of the latter lodge. He and his
wife are active members of the Episcopal Church at Dyersville.
