No. of Application, 258,372

State Massachusetts    County Middlesex

            Post Office Lowell,  April 16, 1881

 

I hereby certify that I have carefully examined Kearon Hogan, late a Private Co B Reg’t Mass. Vols. in the service of the United States, who is an APPLICANT for an invalid pension by reason of alleged disability resulting from wound right arm left leg and rupture.

In my opinion the said Hogan is some incapacitated for obtaining his subsistence by manual labor from the cause above stated.

Judging from his present condition, and from the evidence before me it is my belief that the said disability did ?may?originate in the service aforesaid in the line of duty.

The disability is wounds thigh and rupture.

A more particular description of the applicant’s condition is subjoined:

Height 5.9; weight 160; complexion, dark; age 38; pulse 76; respiration 18.

Oct 19, 1864 at Cedar Creek, VA Hogan received two slight flesh wounds in right fore arm and in surface in left thigh upper part small piece of bone coming out -  no permanent injury or real disability, but a small rupture in the right groin caused he says by some strain in this battle. Know he immediately applied a lump -  has always arm me since - helping in back no out disability.  might have small pension if he can prove the cause of this rupture in the war.

I hereby certify that I have carefully examined Kearon Hogan, late a Private Co B Reg’t Mass. Vols. in the service of the United States, who is an APPLICANT for an invalid pension by reason of alleged disability resulting from rupture rt side, gsw left leg and rt arm.

In my opinion the said Hogan is Three fourth (3/4) incapacitated for obtaining his subsistence by manual labor from the cause above stated.

Judging from his present condition, and from the evidence before me it is my belief that the said disability did ___ originate in the service aforesaid in the line of duty.

The disability is temporary.

A more particular description of the applicant’s condition is subjoined:

Height 5 ft -9 1/2 in.; weight 165; complexion, light; age 41; pulse 100; respiration 20.

I find a large direct reducible internal hernia of right side. Rupture large enough to admit the index finger. Tamer with difficulty retained to admit of any heavy work. Disability – one half (1/2). Gun shot wound of left thigh upper third, ball passing transversely through the thigh anterior to femur, wounding the bone. At present some atrophy of thigh and loss of strength. Wound well healed. Complains of pain after standing and in damp weather. Disability one fourth (1/4). Two simple flesh wounds of right fore arm, well healed and no disability.

History of the Battle of Cedar Creek, VA – October 19, 1864

From the National Park Service “Honor America’s Veterans at Battlefields and Military Parks Preserved in the National Park System.” http://www.nps.gov/pub_aff/veterans/Honor_Veterans.pdf

 

Page 8:

Cedar Creek & Belle Grove National Historical Park, VA: The park preserves the site of the Battle of Cedar Creek, or Belle Grove, fought on October 19, 1864. It was one of the final, and most decisive, battles in the Shenandoah Valley Campaigns of 1864 during the American Civil War. This victory by Union forces had major political implications, as well in contributing to the reelection of President Abraham Lincoln. The Plantation of Belle Grove was at the center of the decisive battle of Cedar Creek. In addition to the battlefield itself, the Belle Grove Plantation permits the story of the battle, the Shenandoah Valley, and the way of life in America before, during, and after the Civil War. The site also includes a significant Manor House and a slave cemetery, among many other important elements.
