William H. Burrill, son of William G. and Elsie B. Burrill
     William Henry Burrill, son of William Gordon Burrill and Elsie Buck Blood, was born on 7 December 1841 at Dedham, Hancock, Maine.1

     William Henry Burrill was in Military Service on 4 November 1861 Regiment: 11th Infantry Regiment ME Date Mustered: 02 February 1866 Regiment Type: Infantry Enlisted Died of Disease or Accident: 7 Officers Died of Disease or Accident: 115 Enlisted Killed or Mortally Wounded: 4 Regimental Soldiers and History: List of Soldiers

Regimental History MAINE ELEVENTH INFANTRY (Three Years) Eleventh Infantry.--Cols., John C. Caldwell, Harris M. Plaisted, Jonathan A. Hill; Lieut.-Cols., Harris M. Plaisted, William M. Shaw, Robert F. Campbell, Winslow P. Spofford, Jonathan A. Hill, Charles P. Baldwin; Majs., William M. Shaw, Robert F. Campbell, Winslow P. Spofford, Jonathan A. Hill, Charles P. Baldwin, Henry C. Adams. The ten preceding regiments had been raised at the expense of the state, under the act of the legislature of April 25, 1861, and the captains and subalterns of the organized companies elected the field officers. The 11th was the first to be raised at the direct expense of the general government, and the colonel, lieutenant-colonel and major were chosen before the companies were organized. The regiment was organized for active service Oct. 11, 1861, and mustered into the U. S. service on Nov. 12, to serve for three years. It left the state the next day for Washington, where it remained encamped until March 28, 1862, when, as part of Casey's division, it proceeded to Alexandria, thence to Newport News. Here on April 6 it was detached from its brigade (Naglee's), and went to the mouth of Warwick creek, where it was under the fire of the rebel gunboat Teazer. On the 17th, it rejoined the division and brigade and proceeded to Yorktown, where on the 29th it was in a sharp engagement with the enemy. Later it took a prominent part in the battles of Williamsburg, Seven Pines and White Oak swamp. From Aug. 16, to Dec. 26, 1862, it was at Yorktown, and on the latter date embarked with Naglee's brigade for Port Royal, S. C., where it landed on Feb. 10, 1863. Gen. Naglee, having been promoted to the command of a division, issued a spirited order on leaving the regiment, of which the following is a part: "Yours is the honor of having been the first to pass and the last to leave the Chickahominy. And, while you led the advance from this memorable place near Richmond, you were the last in the retreating column, when, after seven days' constant fighting, it reached a place of security and rest at Harrison's Landing." The regiment remained in the South until April, 1864, during which time it participated in the unsuccessful attack on Charleston, and was engaged for a long time as artillerists, shelling Sumter and the Confederate works on Sullivan and James' islands. In April, 1864, it joined Gen. Butler's command at Gloucester Point, Va., and during the remainder of the war saw almost continuous fighting. On Nov. 2, 1864, about 130 of the men left the field for Maine, as their term of service had expired, and were mustered out at Augusta on Nov. 18. The next day, Nov., 3, the rest of the regiment went with Gen. Butler to New York to assist in maintaining order in that city at the presidential election, after which it returned to the front. The total casualties of the regiment during 1864 were 363, killed, wounded, missing and prisoners. It received 549 recruits, also a full company of volunteers--the 8th unassigned infantry. During the first three months of 1865, it formed a part of the 3d brigade, 1st division, 24th corps, and was stationed near the New Market road, 10 miles from Richmond. On March 27, it crossed the James and Appomattox rivers, engaged the enemy at Hatcher's run on the 31st, and was almost constantly exposed to the fire until April 2, losing meanwhile 3 enlisted men killed, 2 officers and several enlisted men wounded, and 1 officer and 15 enlisted men captured. It participated in the assault and capture of Forts Gregg and Baldwin, losing 25 enlisted men killed and wounded, and on the 3d moved with the army in pursuit of Lee's forces. At "Clover Hill" on the 9th, it lost 6 enlisted men killed, 2 officers and 29 enlisted men wounded. It remained in the vicinity of Richmond until Nov. 24, and on the 26th, moved to Fredericksburg, where it remained, doing patrol and other duties until the middle of Jan., 1866, when it was ordered to City Point, Va., to be mustered out. It was mustered out on Feb. 2, 1866, in accordance with orders of the war department, and left on the 3d for Augusta, Me., where the men were paid and finally discharged. The regiment saw an unusual amount of hard service, and left a splendid name for intrepidity and heroism. Source: The Union Army, vol. 1 Battles Fought Fought at Williamsburg, VA.

Regimental History
MAINE
FIFTEENTH INFANTRY
(Three Years)


Fifteenth Infantry.--Cols., John McCluskey, Isaac Dyer; Lieut.-Cols., Isaac Dyer, Benjamin B. Murray, Jr., Pembroke; Majs., Benjamin Hawes, Franklin M. Drew, James H. Whitmore, John R. Coates. This regiment was raised principally in Aroostock county, and was organized at Augusta, Me., from Dec. 6 to 31, 1861, to serve for three years. It was mustered into the U. S. service on Jan. 23, 1862, and embarked from Portland March 6 for Ship island, Miss., at which date it numbered 962 men, rank and file. The regiment remained encamped at Carrollton, La., from May 19 to Sept. 18, during which time it suffered much from malarial diseases. In September it went to Pensacola, Fla., where it remained until June 21, 1863. Here the health of the men so improved that the number in hospital was reduced to less than one-quarter. During the first year of its service the 15th lost by desertion, discharge and death 329 men, although it had never been in battle. On its return to New Orleans in June, 1863, it joined Gen. Banks' expedition to Texas and rendered conspicuous service in the capture of Fort Esperanza, in Matagorda bay. While at Matagorda peninsula, from Jan. 17 to Feb. 28, 1864, three-fourths of the original members of the regiment reenlisted for another term of three years. Returning to New Orleans in March, the regiment formed a part of Gen. Banks' Red river expedition, during which it marched more than 700 miles in two months, and participated in the battles of Sabine cross-roads, Pleasant Hill, Cane river crossing and Mansura plains. In June, 1864, it was ordered to New Orleans, and on July 5 embarked on transports for Fortress Monroe, Va., where it arrived on the 17th. Six companies were then ordered to Bermuda Hundred, and the remaining companies participated in the campaign up the valley in pursuit of Early's army. The command was reunited at Monocacy Junction, Md., Aug. 4, when the veterans of the regiment who had reenlisted received a 35 days' furlough, returning to the field Sept. 27. In October it went to Martinsburg, where it remained until Jan. 7, 1865. The original members of the regiment who had not reenlisted were mustered out on Jan. 18, 1865, but the reenlisted men, recruits, volunteers, drafted men and substitutes forwarded from Camp Berry, Portland, were sufficient to reorganize the regiment, which was ordered to Washington in April, and went to Savannah, Ga., on June 4. On the 13th, it embarked on transports for Georgetown, S. C., where it was assigned to the 3d separate brigade, Department of South Carolina, and remained here until the date of muster out,
July 5, 1866, whence the men went to New York, where they were finally paid and discharged.

There were four drafts between 1863 and 1865, which included 3.175 million records. Historically, the 1863 draft was one of the most tenuous moments in the Union outside of the battles fought on Northern soil. Most of the concern was due to the draft riots that took place in New York in 1863.

    These records include 631 volumes of registries and are basically lists of individuals who registered for the draft. The records are split into two different classes, Class I are those aged 20-35 as well as those 36-45 and unmarried. Class II is everyone else that registered.

    The registry contains information including:•Class•Congressional district•County•State•Residence•Name•Age on July 1, 1863•Race•Profession•Married status•Birthplace•Former military service•Remarks
    The actual draft registration records are available in NARA regional archives and sometimes contain more information than the consolidated lists.

Alfonso Seth Davis1

M, b. 28 February 1854, d. 4 June 1923
Relationships
Great-grandfather of Dianne Elizabeth Smith
Great-grandfather of Ellen June Smith
Alfonso S. Davis, husband of Jennie L. Smith
     Alfonso Seth Davis, son of Edward Davis and Abigal P. Staples, was born on 28 February 1854 at Maine.1,2 As of 1860, Alfonso Seth Davis was also known as Seth A.3

     Alfonso, married Jennie L. Smith, daughter of Samuel T. Smith and Elizabeth A. Reed, circa 1888. The story of getting together has to be most wonderful. To think, the best of travel during the 1880's would have been much to be desired. Jennie in Pembroke, Dennysville, Marion area and Alfonso living in Wellington. The distance between being, at least 170 miles. Of course, train service was not available at this time.

     Alfonso and Jennie were in this photograph, with Marion Elizabeth Davis, Horace S. Smith and Marcia C. Smith, which was taken circa 1910 This photograph was not dated, however, it is assumed to have been taken about 1910.4

     According to the 1912 Wellington Town report, Alfonso, was paid a sum of fifteen dollars for fighting a fire.5

     Alfonso Seth Davis was soon to be witness to the fate of a large ocean liner.

The RMS Titanic was a British registered four funnelled ocean liner built for the transatlantic passenger and mail service between Southampton and New York. Constructed at the Harland and Wolff shipyard in Belfast, Ireland Titanic was, on her maiden voyage, the largest vessel afloat. On April 10th 1912 the Titanic sailed from Southampton with 2,200 passengers and crew. The RMS Titanic's original wireless transmissions, began at 11:55 PM Newfoundland Standard Time [1 1/2 hrs. later than EST, 3 1/2 hrs earlier than Greenwich]. Prior to that time, 8 iceberg warnings were given. Mr. Frederick Fleet was the deck crew member as "Lookout". Shortly after he sighted an iceberg the Titanic collided and started to sink sank. Three hours later, 1500 people died and 700 survived.
Ellen was unaware of the upcoming, following day news, letting the world to know, of the sinking. For most people, the news really wouldn't travel fast, due to the lack of radios in family homes., on 14 April 1912.6

Alfonso Seth Davis left a will on 15 April 1913 Alfonso's "Last Will and Testament" was stated as follows:

"That I, Alfonso Davis of Wellington in the county of Piscataquis and the State of Maine.... FIRST: I give bequeath and devise, all of my estate real, personal and mixed wherever located and however and wherever acquired to my daughter, Marion E. Burrill, to have and to hold to her and her heirs and assigns forever. SECOND: I name my said daughter, Marion E. Burrill sole executrix of this my last will and testament, hereby revoking all former wills by me made and I direct that no bond shall be required of her.
An inventory of Alfonso's holdings included $400.00 in real estate, $300.00 in goods and chattels and $6424.68 in rights and credits, for a total of $7124.68.7

     Alfonso Seth Davis died at age 69, on 4 June 1923, at Dover Foxcroft, Piscataquis, Maine.8,9 He was buried in Mt. Hope (Bangor) Cemetery at Bangor, Penobscot, Maine.10,11

     Alfonso Seth Davis appeared on the 1920 Federal Census of Wellington, Piscataquis, Maine, in the household of Clarence E. Hanson and Maud E. Foss. A review of 1920 US Census, Alfonso Davis, was listed as a border with the Clarence Hanson household. His occupation was listed as a retired farmer, in Wellington, Maine. His age was 64. I can only imagine, considering his wife Jennie passed away in 1912, why not spend the rest of your life on a farm, back in your hometown, helping someone else. A look at a land deed showed Alfonso selling his farm to Clarence.17

Jennie L Smith, wife of Sanford B. Smith and Alfonso Davis
     Jennie L. Smith, daughter of Samuel T. Smith and Elizabeth A. Reed, was born on 4 July 1859 at Marion, Washington, Maine.1

     Jennie L. Smith witnessed travel from Bangor, to Calais, Maine in the 1800's was limited. Some people called one route the "Airline". It was ninty odd miles through the woods, and the shortest way from Bangor to Calais. A stage coach line took the name Airline Stage Route to distinguish it from its competition, shoreline. The Airline route could save travelers almost a day's time. However, the travel took passengers through some wild, unsettled country. There were reports of holdups, attack by wolves to name a few problems. The Airline Stage Route was discontinuined in 1887, when steamboat service entered as competition for travel from Bangor to Calais.2

     Jennie, at age 17, married Sanford B. Smith, son of John Smith and Elizabeth Blackwood, on 31 March 1877 at Pembroke, Washington, Maine, by Rev. James Hiram.3,4,5,6,7

     Jennie L. Smith was a cograntee with an unknown person in the purchase of one hundred fifty-four dollars from Sanford B. Smith on 31 October 1881.

His goods and chattels included: 1 wagon, $40.00; 1 sleigh, $3.00; 2 sleds, $10.00; 3 tons hay, $40.00; 1 cow, $12.00; 1 calf; $1.00; 2 sheep, $4.00; 8 chairs, $3.00; 2 beds and bedding; 1 table and knives, forks and dishes. Total $133.00.9,10

     Jennie L. Smith, with the passing of her husband, Sanford, was faced with selling the homestead. It appears Jennie may have been residing with her parents since the sale indicated she was of Plantation #14, County of Washington, State of Maine. In consideration of $160.00, sold to Albert Anthony at Pembroke, Washington, Maine, bounded Southerly by the County road leading to Dennysville from said Pembroke: Westerly by land of Parker F. Cushing: Northerly by land of John Antone (lately owned by Geo. Antone) and by land of H. C. Brown: and Easterly by land now or formerly owned by C. H.

According to the record in Volume 178, page 116, the deed was discharged based on full payment, 16 September 1905.

.11

     Jennie, married Alfonso Seth Davis, son of Edward Davis and Abigal P. Staples, circa 1888. The story of getting together has to be most wonderful. To think, the best of travel during the 1880's would have been much to be desired. Jennie in Pembroke, Dennysville, Marion area and Alfonso living in Wellington. The distance between being, at least 170 miles. Of course, train service was not available at this time.

     Jennie and Alfonso were in this photograph, with Marion Elizabeth Davis, Horace S. Smith and Marcia C. Smith, which was taken circa 1910 This photograph was not dated, however, it is assumed to have been taken about 1910.12

     On 23 August 1910 Marcia sent a post card to Jennie . You will notice, the post card is addressed to Mrs. Alfonso Davis, in Harmony, Maine. It appears Marcia has left home to work in another town. She tells her Mom, (Jennie) her work keeps her busy. And, on the back of her card shows how busy, with a bee after a bear.13

     On 31 December 1911 Jennie sent a letter to Marion . In this letter she discusses the weather and Marcia's health.13

     Jennie L. Davis was soon to be witness to the fate of a large ocean liner.

The RMS Titanic was a British registered four funnelled ocean liner built for the transatlantic passenger and mail service between Southampton and New York. Constructed at the Harland and Wolff shipyard in Belfast, Ireland Titanic was, on her maiden voyage, the largest vessel afloat. On April 10th 1912 the Titanic sailed from Southampton with 2,200 passengers and crew. The RMS Titanic's original wireless transmissions, began at 11:55 PM Newfoundland Standard Time [1 1/2 hrs. later than EST, 3 1/2 hrs earlier than Greenwich]. Prior to that time, 8 iceberg warnings were given. Mr. Frederick Fleet was the deck crew member as "Lookout". Shortly after he sighted an iceberg the Titanic collided and started to sink sank. Three hours later, 1500 people died and 700 survived.
Ellen was unaware of the upcoming, following day news, letting the world to know, of the sinking. For most people, the news really wouldn't travel fast, due to the lack of radios in family homes., on 14 April 1912.14

     On 15 May 1912 William sent a letter to Jennie . (William is the man that was planning to marry Marcia). From reading his letter, Mr. Brown was very much in love with Marcia and obviously very saddened hearing of her death.13

     On 31 May 1912 Jennie sent a letter to Marion . The vertical writing reads on page 5 is as follows:
"Aunt Hannah is up to Franks but she can't come up here she is in such bad shape she has failed so much since she come that Charlie is coming up to take her back. Grammie went down to see her yesterday she is losing her mind dreadfully got up yesterday morning and put her corsets on outside of her dress and had her teeth in upside down. I pity her so.”.15

     On 23 June 1912 Jennie sent a letter to Marion . The letter discusses how the garden's are doing,a proposed meeting in Bangor and a comment about Clifford's injured finger.15

     On 9 July 1912 Jennie sent a letter to Marion . Jennie is expressing how hot it is there. And, of course, its just the time to be haying. The lack of rain is making so many things dry but humid.13

     On 11 July 1912 Jennie sent a post card to Marion . Jennie gives Marion a little guidance on planting cucumber plants.15

     On 14 August 1912 William sent a letter to Jennie . (William, Mr. Brown, was the man planning to marry Marcia.) He was thanking them for sending Marcia's ring back. He also discusses his involvement with farming. And, there are some comments about a wedding present to Marion and Clifford.15

     On 24 August 1912 Jennie sent a letter to Marion . Jennie comments on her return trip to Harmony. She expresses how the place was kept while she was gone. Jennie expresses her feelings of the toll last spring. Jennie has been looking through a book Horace made. You can feel the sadness within Jennie.15

     On 30 September 1912 Jennie sent a letter to Marion . In this letter, Jennie talks about a trip over the mountain that was cancelled. Also the health of several visitors.15

     On 4 October 1912 Jennie sent a letter to Marion . In this letter, Jennie is discussing her trip to Dexter to get some cola syrup to make sweet pickles. She also expresses she isn't feeling very well and that Lizzie has now left for the winter. Lizzie was a great help for Jennie this past summer.15

     On 17 October 1912 Jennie sent a letter to Marion . As you read this letter, you can tell Jennie is of failing health. She is a strong woman in her writing. She explains the several visits from the doctor. And, how the doctor first indicated her lungs were alright, then on the next visit he didn't like the sounds coming from them.15

     Jennie L. Smith died at age 53, on 6 November 1912, at Wellington, Piscataquis, Maine. Jennie's cause of death was listed as exhaustion due to abcess of left lung.16,17 She was buried in Mt. Hope (Bangor) Cemetery at Bangor, Penobscot, Maine.18,19
