Stephen R. Malcomb, died yesterday. He enlisted on April 24,
1861, at Morris, Ill., as a private in Company F, Eleventh Regiment Illinois
Infantry for a period of three months. He was mustered in on April 30 and
mustered out July 30. He re-enlisted on Aug. 27 as a private in Company
C, Fifty-fifth Illinois Regiment for three years. On March 31, 1863, he
was appointed a sergeant and on Oct 30, 1864, he was discharged at Chattanooga,
Tenn. Mr. Malcomb re-enlisted Feb. 22, 1865, as a corporal and on Feb.
22, 1896, he was discharged at Elmira. While at Atlanta, he was taken a
prisoner and sent to Andersonville prison. At the close of the war he came
to Syracuse and married Mary A. Weston.
He is survived by eleven children, one sister of Harrison,
N. J., and two brothers in Kansas. The children are: Mrs. C. M. Kingsley
of Santa Barbara, Cal.; Mrs. C. M. Bockoven of Chicago; Charles Malcom
of Syracuse; Walter Malcomb, Memphis, Mrs. G. Fellows, Annie Malcomb, Mrs.
George Batzer, Fred Malcomb, Miss Jessie Malcomb, Miss Satie Malcomb of
Note from Dorothy Cate Frisbie:
I've never understood why he came to Syracuse from Elmira instead
of going home to Illinois; he married Mary Ann only one month or so after
I don't know which of his sisters is the one in Harrison, N.
J., but the two brothers in Kansas were Charles and Thomas. I have done
research on both of those families.
The married female children referred to are: Mrs. C. M. Kinglsey
is Mabel; Mrs. C. M. Bockoven is Ella, who married 3 times; Mrs. G. Fellows
is Grace (my grandmother); "Annie" is Amy who later married C.
Frank Drumm); Mrs. George Batzer is Minnie, who adopted her sister's son
Milton after Fred Fellows deserted the family. Jessie married Clarence
Patchett and Satie married Dana Wells.
