122 Regiment, N.Y.V.
Submitted by Kathy Crowell September 25, 1998.
The following lists of surviving members (as of 1888) of the 122nd Regiment
appeared weekly from February 2, 1888-April 5, 1888 in the Veteran's Column
of Fayetteville's "Weekly Recorder" newspaper. Serious coverage of
Civil War veteran news began in 1888, under editor Maj. Andrew Wilkin,
a former member of the122nd Regt., and was continued into 1892 under
Several names are probably not correctly spelled, while in other
cases, the microfilm copy was too light to read. If anyone has corrections,

OUR OLD COMRADES
February 2, 1888
Where Are They? What Are They Doing?
Hereafter one column of the RECORDER will be reserved for the veterans
of the 122d Regiment N.Y. Vols. and we hope through the assistance of the
members of that regiment to make it useful and entertaining. It will
enable us to keep track of each other though widely separated, and when
we need each other's assistance in any way a letter to the RECORDER will
surely bring a prompt response. The Editor was one of the "boys"
and has undertaken this enterprise in the belief that it will be a source
of pleasure not only to himself but a benefit to all concerned.
We publish below a list so far as we can obtain the data, of the surviving
members of the Field and Staff of the 122d N.Y. Vols. and also of Company
A with their present post office address where known. If comrades
in reading the list find any errors in the address they will please notify
us at once, giving the correct address.
"Enough of merit has each honored name
To shine untarnished on the roll of fame,
And add new luster to the historic page."

writes us from Arcadia, Neb.:--The copies of the RECORDER you sent me were
a glad surprise. It seemed like a resurrection. I have seen
but two members of the old regiment in 22 years. I have been trying
to make a success of farming. I have succeeded in starting quite
an army of infantry, of which my 'better half' and myself are in temporary
command--a poor man's property and comfort. I came from Minnesota
to this State fourteen years ago very well fixed. The first two years
we were here the grasshoppers took everything we tried to produce on the
farm, so I thought I must do something for a living and went trapping with
a party of neighbors. On my way home in January, 1876, I froze my
feet so badly that I had to have them amputated. You can see how
well I have got along at farming. Oh, how I would like to be at one
of the regimental reunions!" The 12/19/1889 issue reports that
"Alonzo Fradenburg Co. A, 122 N.Y.V., is now a resident of Arcadia, Nebraska.
He is numbered among the prominent and well-to-do stockmen of that vicinity
and has a large ranch near the town. He is a member of T. T. Dow

E. P. Luther of "D" Co. was taken with a severe stroke of paralysis on
Tuesday last while trading at a store in Syracuse, and was taken to the
residence of his niece, Mrs. Frank Harris of 11 Johnson St., Syracuse.
His left side is paralyzed and much of the time he lies in an unconscious
state. He received five wounds at the battle of the Wilderness and
while lying on the field was taken prisoner by the rebels. The injuries
received at this time and poor care while in the hands of the rebels undermined
a naturally strong constitution and his present illness is therefore all
the more serious. It is doubtful if he ever recovers. His faithful
wife who has tenderly cared for and watched over him since he came home
from the army was taken from him by death last summer, and he has now no
near relatives living. His old comrades will do what they can to
make smooth his pathway to the grave which cannot be far distant; corrected
on 3/15/1888 to: "Died at the home of his niece, Mrs. Frank L. Harris,
in Syracuse, on Wednesday the 7th inst., Edward P. Luther, late Capt. of
Co. "D" 122 N.Y. Vols. In the same issue is this obituary:
Major Edward P. Luther. On Saturday last, we gazed for the last time
on the features of our old friend and comrade, Edward P. Luther.
His constitution, weakened by wounds and exposure while in the field, could
not throw off the fatal disease which prostrated him, and on Wednesday
last he died. His funeral was attended by many of his old comrades-in-arms
who carried him to his last resting place beside the body of his wife,
in the cemetery at Onondaga Hill. No braver man ever wore the blue,
and no more faithful and steadfast friend ever shared his ration with a
comrade, than Edward P. Luther. Time obscures his faults, if he had
any, and death brings out in bright relief the many noble qualities of
the man. Peace to his ashes.".)

in hospitals, he reached home with a broken constitution and an unhealed
wound, from which he has since been a constant sufferer. He is unable
to perform manual labor, and this appointment will make life easier for
him. His comrades will all rejoice to hear of his good fortune.
He is thoroughly worth and competent to fill the place, and Judge Northrup
is entitled to the thanks of the veteran soldiers for this recognition
of one of their number.")

Wm. B. Cardell -- you have it "Carroll"--is a "rustler"--a drummer for
a big wholesale tobacco house, or was a year or two ago. His P.O.
is Kansas City, Mo.--or was when I saw him. He came here and we had
a nice visit. He tells some pretty tough yarns. I think he
was a non-combatant most of the time, belonged to the hospital corps, or
else got detailed on court martial or some other soft place. He laughs
over it now."
