Muscroft, S.J. -- MUSCROFT -- At his home near Mansfield, January 2d., 1884, S.J. Muscroft, author of Drummer Boy of Shiloh, aged 45 years. The subject of this sketch was of English parentage and was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, January 19th., 1838. Death removed his parents when he was at the tender age of 4 years, leaving him to be nurtured and cared for by relatives. The child growing into boyhood, soon manifested a courageous spirit. His self-reliance and determination grew with age. Having soon acquired habits of industry and thrift he was always self-supporting. As a soldier, he enlisted at Mansfield, August 6th., 1862, in Co. B., 102d. O.V.I., serving with credit and distinction in several battles, the hardships of a soldier's life soon told on his health -- being sent to Athens, he was captured by Gen. Forrest and sent with other sick comrades to Cahawba, Miss., where suffering the hardships of a prison for 9 months, he was exchanged at Vicksburg. Mr. Muscroft was widely known as the author of "The Drummer Boy of Shiloh". His fertile brain and sympathetic heart doubtless caught inspiration from the pathetic story of the finding of the little drummer boy on Shiloh's field, his tender care by little innocent hands, &c. which, coupled with his own experiences and hardships, his genius wove into the beautiful and pathetic drama of the "Drummer Boy of Shiloh" performed and appreciated all over the land. Mr. Muscroft was married to Mrs. E. Baker, daughter of John Hull, Sr., May 17th., 1875, the issue of said union belong three daughters, who survive him and mourn the departure of a kind and affectionate husband and indulgent father. That he had talent and genius none will gainsay. Of a kind and generous nature, he was always more ready to give than receive. His charity was boundless as his fidelity and integrity were tried and true, which qualities of head and heart far outshone his faults which were but human. His death was not wholly unexpected by his neighbors and friends, who so kindly and willingly nursed him through a long and painful sickness, which he bore with a calm and Christian fortitude so meekly. His requests were fully carried out, his remains being escorted to the Episcopal Church, after appropriate and impressive remarks, were made by Rev. Dr. Doolittle, Venus Lodge of the Masons, of which he was a worthy member, took charge and buried him according to the beautiful ritual of that Order. The deceased was also a member of the Knights of Honor and of the Grand Army of the Republic, which latter organization paid a beautiful tribute to the memory of their deceased comrade by turning out a large escort to the cemetery in very inclement weather. Thus have we buried our Brother, comrade and friend. Farewell. As we drop the sympathetic tear we also deposit another flower on thy new made grave.  [MANSFIELD HERALD, 10 January 1884, Vol. 34, No. 8]

Muscroft, S.J. -- The funeral of Mr. S.J. Muscroft, late of the 102d.
