Camp Andy Jackson March 17-1862 Dear Father I received your kind letter of the 1st with pleasure I was glad to hear that you are getting your usual health again. I am now in my usual health though I had a severe cold some time ago which was the first time I was unwell in the service we have very (many?) drill times in camp now as we have no drill since we left camp Wood and we get but few papers now to read there was another death in our company last Friday the man's name that died was Joseph Stark a son of Rev. Stark who used to preach at crooked creek there were two brothers of them in this company both are now dead; the one that died here died by his own imprudence having eaten about a pound of crackers at a meal he took sick that night and never had a passage after March 18. My writing was interrupted yesterday by an order to move when we packed up and started to go ahead again but we are now stopt again within half a mile of our old camp the weather is quite pleasant with occasional light frosts the season don't seem to be so much earlier as might be expected as the peach trees are only just coming in bloom. (End of front of letter, the rest on the back page)
I received the box Thomas sent me last Friday and I appreciate good butter now if ever I did the contents are all very acceptable though the butter is rather the best.
We are likely to stay here or in this vicinity for a considerable time as our Brigade is guarding Nashville now our Brigade is said to be removed from McCook's division and that it will be attached to Grant's division as there is very little to write I must bring my letter to a close Your affectionate son William Young Direct your letters to Wm Young C(are?) of 78th Regt. Negl(illegible) Brigade Tenn (Source: Courtesy of Sylvia Heath per e-mail 01 September 2000..."The text of the Civil War letter is as follows...(It is written with very little punctuation, so I have transcribed it in that way, putting in only those periods, commas, capitals, etc. found in the letter) but the script is very neatly written and mostly still legible.")

According to Jenny Zinn Solida William had his blacksmith shop in his barn. (Source: Courtesy of Sylvia Heath)
After William's wife Nancy Jane died of a heart ailment all the Youngs and the Spangs got together to have a meeting on how to raise the younger children. William was a member of the Odd Fellows, so they decided to send them to the Odd Fellows Home. When Sadie heard this she ran upstairs and crawled in the cradle (she was eleven) covered up her head and started to cry. William went looking for her and when he found her he asked "Sadie what's wrong?". She said "I don't want to go to a home, I want you to raise me." He replied "Well bless you I will." He then arranged for his sister, Sarah, to come and she lived with them for several years. (Source: Sylvia Heath, story from another Young family member)

Aged Woman, Following Long Siege of Illness, Strangles Herself to Death on Attic Stairway.


She Was a Native of East Sharpsburg and Had Been a Resident of Altoona for the Past 38 Years.

Mrs. Annie M. Butler, wife of John H. Butler, a blacksmith employed by the Pennsylvania railroad, ended her life at the home of her daughter, Mrs. I.W. Lytle, 1815 Twenty-third avenue, shortly after 10.30 o'clock this forenoon by strangling herself with a short rope. The gruesome discovery was made by the daughter but a short time after the act had been committed.

Mrs. Butler who was 56 years of age, had not been in good health for several years and has spent several periods of convalescence in hospitals. She fell victim to influenza several years ago and had recurrences of the malady, the last time early in March. She had made but tedious progress to recovery and it is believed that her physical condition so preyed upon her mind that she determined to end it all.

About 10.30 o'clock this forenoon, Mrs. Butler went upstairs, the daughter being engaged in her household duties. A small grandchild was sent to call for grandma but when there was no response, the daughter went to the second floor to ascertain if anything had happened.

Finds Mother's Dead Body.

Not finding her mother on the second floor, Mrs. Lytle opened the door leading to the attic and there in the stairway, she was horrified to see her mother dead. She had taken a short rope, and placing it about her neck, grasped the ends with her hands and pulled until it choked her and cut off her breathing and she died, probably in a few minutes. She had been out of the daughter's sight but a short time.

Mrs. Lytle summoned neighbors who in turn notified the husband who was at work and Coroner Chester C. Rothrock was called. The coroner upon investigating the story of the suicide deemed an inquest unnecessary and Undertaker Otto Gilden was called to take charge of the body.

Since her health failed her, Mr. and Mrs. Butler have been making their homes with their daughter. They have lived in Altoona for the last thirty-eight years, coming here from East Sharpsburg where Mrs. Butler was born. Her maiden name was Spang. She was born 56 years ago.

She is survived by her husband, one son, C.R. Butler and a daughter, Mrs. Lytle and a grandchild, all of this city, and the following brothers and sisters: Mrs. William Shiffler and Mrs. J.E. Shoenfelt of this city, Mrs. W.H. Price of Youngstown, O., George P. Spang of Los Angeles, Calif., H.M. of Minneapolis, Minn., R.W. of Pittsburgh and F.M. of Oakland, Calif. She was a member of the Grace Reformed church.

Regimental History

Emergency Troops of 1863.

Early in the summer of 1863, rumors were constantly afloat
concerning a threatened invasion of border states by the
Confederates and in June two new departments were established
by the war department -- the Department of the' Monongahela and
the Department of the Susquehanna -- in order that the state
might be protected from any such movement of the enemy.

Volunteers were called for by Gov. Curtin to serve "During: the
pleasure of the president or the continuance of the war."

Slow to believe that their homes were really endangered, the
greatly reduced number of men available for military service
hesitated to respond. On June 12, the governor published the
notice that the troops requested would be mustered into the
service of the United States for six months, or during the
existing emergency, as they should themselves elect.

In a short time eight regiments were mustered in for the
"emergency" and became the 20th, 26th, 27th, 28th, 28th, 30th,
31st and 33rd emergency regiments. Other companies and
organizations volunteered their services and need for them was
soon found.

The Confederates had occupied Chambersburg and Gettysburg and
when it was discovered that the main body of their forces had
actually crossed the Potomac, another proclamation was issued
by Gov. Curtin on June 26, calling for 60,000 men at once to be
mustered into the state service for a term of 90 days and to be
discharged as soon as the danger was over.

To this urgent message twenty-eight regiments responded and
were organized in the two departments previously mentioned, at
Huntingdon, Reading, Philadelphia and Harrisburg. A force
under Gen. Knipe approached Chambersburg, but found it in the
hands of the enemy and was obliged to retire gradually before
the advance of Johnson's division of Ewell's corps.

The Confederates reached Oyster Point, but were withdrawn to
Gettysburg on account of the advance of the Army of the Potomac
and within a few days was fought the battle of Gettysburg.

A portion of the militia joined the Army of the Potomac in
Maryland after the battle, but were soon afterward returned to

The emergency regiments were mustered out soon after the battle
of Gettysburg, the regiments of militia a little later, various
duties within the state requiring their services for a short

Some were employed at Gettysburg, some at Philadelphia in
preserving order, and at other points they rendered valuable

Isaac Spang, plasterer, residing at 1116 Cedar Avenue, was found dead in the meadow, along the embankment of the Cornwall railroad between Cumberland and Chestnut Streets, near Donaghmore station on Thursday about noon. He is aged about 56 years. From witnesses who saw Spang, it was learned that at about 11 o'clock Thursday morning Mrs. Spang was seen leading her husband, evidently trying to get him home. While walking along the embankment of the Cornwall railroad, near Donaghmore station, he was seen to fall to the ground. Mrs. Spang left her husband lie and hurried home in order to secure assistance of neighbors with a view of removing her husband home. When she arrived at the scene she was shocked to find that her husband had died during her absence and became grief stricken. Word was sent to the police station and Deputy Coroner Charles D. Weirich was notified. He at once proceeded to the scene and after viewing the remains directed their removal by the family. Spang was a veteran of the Civil war and his body was removed to the residence by several Sons of Veterans, who were near when death occurred. Deputy Coroner Weirich selected a jury as a precaution in case Coroner Shultz decided to hold an inquest later. Death is said to have been caused by heat prostration and alcoholism. Spang for some years resided in the Second Ward. He is survived by a wife, Caroline, and those children, who are at home: Lenora, Beulah, Albert, Isaac and Carolin; a son resides at Reading and another at Pittsburgh. [Lebanon Daily News]

ANNA MARY (McCANN) ALLEN , was born June 13, 1851 in Conersville, Ind. When but 4 years of age she came with her mother to Ill.

She was united in marriage to Walter W. Allen Sept. 1, 1869 in Morrison, Ill. There came into this home nine children, Della I. Spang of Hartely, Iowa., Rollo D. of Millidgeville, Clara M. Hahn of Sterling, Ill., Louis J. of Milledgeville, Gertie, deceased; Edith Imel of Fair Haven, Eva Todd of Milldegeville, Orville and Laura of Millidgeville.

The deceased leaves to mourn over her departure beside her husband and father, two sisters Mrs. Ed. Duffy of Eagle Point and Mrs. June Barnhart of Chadwick, also the following half brothers and half sisters; Samuel Murray of Milledgeville, Mrs. Amos Schryver of Milledgeville, Mrs. Wm, Dieterle of Sterling, John Bracken of Milledgeville and Thomas Bracken of Sterling. Mrs. Allen resided in this town for 16 years and died Friday evening, Oct 18 (1912) at the age of 61 years, 4 months and 5 days. She was a member of the Baptist church here in Milledgeville, having united with that body March 17, 1895. For several years she has been attending the Brethren church when she could. Sometimes she would venture out when her physical condition was in a weakened state. On the Sunday evening of Oct. 8. She was present at the services on last Tuesday evening. Her interest in the service of the master was of comfort to her. The predominating element in the departed was her service for others and for her family. She virtually poured out her life for those about her, and it seems that she poured it out rapidly. She was kind and affectionate to her husband and family.

Her work on earth is done, so far as we can see, yet the good deeds that she did ought to be a lasting lesson to all her children and many friends. Funeral at the Brethren church at 10:30 Monday morning, conducted by Z. T. Livengood assisted by Rev. W. A. Garber. Interment in South Elkhorn cemetery.

Barbara's will was dated 10 May 1906. She left her 53 acre farm, which was located in Bethel Twp., Armstrong Co., Pa. to her son, Isaiah, with a unique condition. Isaiah had to accept the bequest within 30 days after the appraisement; otherwise the farm would be sold along with her personal property and the procedes divided equally among her seven children. The appraisement and inventory of her personal property, two days after her death, showed a value of $490.30. When the time came for the division of the estate among the heirs, in March 1910, there was only $185.00 in the administrator's account, or $26.43 per child.The will originally provided that, aside from the farm, her children were to share equally. Since her daughter, Nancy, was deceased, she bequeathed her share to four of her eight children --- Robert, William, Samual Young and Barbara Eckman ---after $35.00 was spent for a tombstone for the deceassed daughter. On 27 January 1907 Barbara amended her will to provide that nancy's other four children were to share in their mother's portion of the estate. Each child received $3.31/ $3.30, which was not mentioned in the 1907 change. By the time of the final distribution, Barbara's daughter, Leah Shotts was also deceased. The result was that each of her nine children received $2.94 / $2.93 from their grandmother. Barbara left nothing to her stepchildren, the children of her husband and his first wife, Elizabeth Riggle.

Cain, Eileen Jean 92 04/04/1918 12/21/2010 Eileen Jean Cain was born in Franksville, Wis., to Ottilia and John Spang. She was the youngest of six children. Eileen graduated from nursing school at Milwaukee County General Hospital in 1939. From 1942 to 1946, she was a nurse anesthetist in the U.S. Army Nurse Corps. While she was stationed in Big Springs, Texas, she took care of an Air Force bombardier, Bill Cain, whom she married in 1946. They had six children between 1947 and 1957. When the youngest of her children entered elementary school, Eileen returned to nursing as an administrator and as a consultant. After moving from San Antonio to the first addition of Lake Oswego in 1993, Eileen joined the Lake Oswego Adult Community Center where she worked on many fundraising projects. She also became a parishioner at Our Lady of the Lake Catholic Church where she participated in the 49ers. Volunteering, advocacy and charitable giving were necessary and rewarding parts of Eileen's life and she found many occasions to apply her varied interests. Eileen was an adventurer who understood that adventure could be found not only in kayaking in Alaska at the age of 80, but also in a walk around the block. She loved to travel and hear about others' travels. She had a deep appreciation of nature and spent time hiking, gardening and watching the birds visit her feeders. Her abiding faith was the foundation upon which she built a long, productive, happy life. In 2005 Eileen moved to Mary's Woods in Lake Oswego where she lived until her death. At Mary's Woods she enjoyed painting classes, poker, dancing and golfing. She volunteered on the Residents Council and the Health Committee. She was grateful to live in a community of exceptional people who became her friends. Eileen leaves behind many friends and family including her daughters, Candice O'Denver (Robert Feinberg), Colleen Cain (Philip Miller) and Patricia Cain (Rick Johnson); and sons, John Cain (Becky) and Kevin Cain (Kim). Her indomitable spirit will survive in her 10 grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren. In addition to her husband, Bill, Eileen was preceded in death by her daughter, Mary Cain. Eileen's family would like to thank Dr. Mark McKinstry, the community of Mary's Woods and the staff of the Marie Rose Center for their support and care. A memorial service will be held in February in the chapel at Mary's Woods, Lake Oswego. Eileen's family will gather this summer to spread Bill's and her ashes in Big Elk Meadow near Estes Park, Colo., where the two fell in love. In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to the Lake Oswego Adult Community Center, 505 G St., Lake Oswego, OR 97034; or Mary's Woods Resident Fund, P.O. Box 411, Marylhurst, OR 97036.

CHARLES FREDERICK SPANG was born in Berks Co., Pa. in 1809. His great-grandfather, the progenitor of the family in this country, was HANS GEORGE SPANG, who emigrated in 1751 from Rotterdam, Holland, to America, and settled in Greenwich Twp., Berks Co., Pa. Of HANS? six sons, LEONARD and GEORGE served in the war of independence; the former died a prisoner of war in Trenton, N. J.; the other went to Europe with Gen. Kuyphausen, who had commanded the Hessians, and became the resident of Bremen, where he acquired a large fortune, and died without immediate heirs in 1826. A portion of his distant relations in America are now claimants of the estate. Another son, FREDERICK SPANG, became the owner of the Oley furnaces at Semple, Pa, one of the oldest works of the kind in the U. S., having been erected in 1772. He left this property to his son, HENRY S. SPANG, afterward moved to Huntingdon Co., Pa., where he established iron-works. The Pa. canal was opened about this time to Huntingdon, thus offering a market in Pittsburgh for their products.

CHARLES FREDRICK SPANG, the junior member of the firm, came with his father to Huntingdon, and was an active assistant in the conduct of the business...The formation of the firm of H. S. SPANG & Son, and the erection of the Etna Iron-works on the site of a sickle-factory that had been built at Etna in 1817. The firm was destined to take a prominent place among the manufacturers of the west. The son, now 19 years of age, became the business manager and a resident here. On the death of H. S. SPANG, the firm became SPANG & Co. (CHARLES F. SPANG and James McAuley). The business was conducted under this style till 1858, when the present firm of SPANG, Chalfant & Co. was formed, consisting of CHARLES H. SPANG, John W. Chalfant, C. B. Herron and George A. Chalfant. In 1878 the SPANG Steel & Iron Co. (limited) was organized as a branch of the above. Its officers are Campbell B. Herron, president; John C. Porter, treasurer, and George A. Chalfant, general manager.

In the year 1858 MR. SPANG moved to Nice. France, where he has since resided, making occasional visits to his native country. He was a pioneer in the iron business here, and was the first manufacturer of iron tubing west of the Allegheny mountains. He was one of the early directors of the Bank of Pittsburgh, one of the founders of the Western Pa. hospital, and a corporator of the Allegheny Cemetery, and a vestryman of Trinity Church.

CHARLES H. SPANG, son of C. F. SPANG, and a member of the firm of SPANG, Chalfant & Co., was born in Pittsburgh. He was educated in the city, and succeeded his father in the business. NORMAN SPANG, the second son, who is connected with the business, resides in Pittsburgh.

Charles F. Spang Dead.

Charles F. Spang of Pittsburg died last Thursday at Nice, France, after a long illness.
He was a pioneer iron man in the Pittsburg district and the first manufacturer of iron tubing west of the Allegheny mountains. Mr. Spang was prominent in the business life of Pittsburg until his removal to Nice, France, many years ago. He came to Pittsburg with his father in his youth and was associated with him in the business of H. S. Spang and Son, whose works were at Etna. On the death of his father Mr. Spang organized the firm of Spang and Company, having James McAuley for a partner.
In 1858 the present firm of Spang, Charles F. Spang taking the place in Chalfant and Company was formed, the business formerly held by his father in the old firm. Mr. Spang then removed to Nice, making occasional trips to this city.
SPANG, Charles Frederick (I227)
JACOB EICHELBERGER, one of the prominent farmers and respected citizens of
Lower Allen township, and a descendant of an old and honorable family of this
locality, was born Dec. 20, 1835, in East Pennsboro township, this county, a
son of Jacob and Elizabeth (Spong) Eichelberger, and is of German ancestry.

Jacob Eichelberger, father of our subject, was born in East Pennsboro
township, on a farm which adjoined one he later owned. He was a son of
well-to-do parents and enjoyed the advantages of a district school education,
but was also taught all the practical details of a farmer's life. He cleared
up many acres of timber land and dealt extensively in cattle. In young
manhood he married Miss Elizabeth Spong, sister of Joseph Spong, who was the
father of Lemuel R. Spong, of West Fairview, of whom a sketch will be found
elsewhere. Mr. Eichelberger continued to farm up to within ten years of his
decease, and then moved to Wormleysburg, where he died in the summer of 1889.
His first wife died on the farm many years before and Mr. Eichelberger
subsequently married Mrs. Elizabeth Rodabough, who also preceded him to the
grave. Our subject's parents were both devout Lutherans and the father was a
liberal contributor to St. John's Church, at Shiremanstown, to which he
willed a large amount at his death. In politics he was a supporter of the
Republican party.

The children of Jacob Eichelberger, Sr., by his first marriage, were as
follows: Adam (deceased), who married Susan Wormley; Sarah, Mrs. John
Rodabough, of East Pennsboro; Jacob, Jr., of this sketch; Mary, Mrs. John
Bixler, of Wormsleyburg; Joseph, a farmer of East Pennsboro township, who
married (first) Jane Fortney, and (second) Elizabeth Miller; Martin, who
married Mrs. Kate Phillips and resides in Sunbury; and Katherine, Mrs. John
Kenmore, of Wormleysburg.

The paternal grandfather of our subject was born in Germany and died in
East Pennsboro township. His children were as follows: Adam, a farmer, died
near Camp Hill; George resided near Hogestown, in this county; John resided
near Slate Hill, this county; Jacob became the father of our subject; Jonas
is deceased; Mrs. Neilhorner is deceased; Mrs. Fred Sheely is deceased;.
David married Susanna Sheely and died in East Pennsboro township.

Jacob Eichelberger grew up on the farm and attended what was known as the
Bowman district school, his remembered instructors being of this
neighborhood, and one of them was the well known Bailey Mateer, a favorite
and successful teacher of that time and locality. His father believed in
early industry and he was put to farm work young, assisting his father in
clearing up many acres. of timber and in the cultivation of much land. He
remained with his father until his marriage, which took place in 1854, in
East Pennsboro township, and was to Miss Susan Rupley, of East Pennsboro
township, a daughter of George Rupley, who was a prosperous farmer of that
section. After his marriage the father divided the farm between himself and
his brother Joseph and generously built the former a home on his half of the
100 acres. Mr. Eichelberger continued here, actively engaged in farming until 1903,
and engaged in wholesaling milk for twelve years. Here his first wife died Aug. 12,
1887, a devout member of St. John's Lutheran Church, of Shiremanstown, and in
1889 he married (second) Miss Annie Danner, who was born near Lewisberry York
county. In her infancy her parents removed to East Pennsboro, where she grew to
womanhood, and in Middleton township she went to school with Miss Isabella
Benner, now Mrs. J. Zeamer, and later was instructed by Jere Zeamer, in the
old oak schoolhouse in North Middleton township. Mrs. Eichelberger was a
daughter of Peter G. and Anna (Brady) Danner, both of whom were born and
reared in York county. Her father died at the home of his son Lewis C.,
keeper of the toll-gate at Bridgeport, the mother passing away a few months
previously. The children of Peter G. Danner and his wife were as follows:
Reuben married Adeline Nisley, and died at New Cumberland in May, 1903;
Abraham married Rebecca Hess, and lives at Riverton; Charles died young;
Eliza Mary, deceased, was Mrs. Harry Lewis; John, of Riverton, married Rachel
Garret; Lewis C., toll-gate keeper and merchant, married Carrie Naylor; Tillie
is Mrs. Charles Green, of Steelton; Annie is Mrs. Eichelberger; Clara is Mrs.
Benjamin Eichelberger, of Lemoyne; and James, of Allegheny City, married
Christina Hostetter. The paternal grandfather of Mrs. Eichelberger was Tobias
Danner, who married Elizabeth Groff, of German parentage. Her people were
wealthy and left a large estate, but owing to lack of legal evidence those
most interested have never been able to secure it.

Mr. Eichelberger had the following children by his first marriage: John,
deceased, married Hannah Martin; Jacob, of Sparrow's Point, married Mary
Good; Harry, of Wormleysburg, married Kate Lucas; Flora, deceased, was the
wife of John Orris; George, of Lemoyne, married Fanny Eshelman; Fanny married
J. D. Hipple, of Wormleysburg; Frank, deceased, married Jessie Albright;
Milton, of Wormleysburg, married Susan Brown; Benjamin, of Lemoyne, married
Clara Danner. The children of the second union are Charles, Walter, Paul,
Nestor, Verna, Robert and Lena.
