Military Monday: George Herzog






Today is Military Monday from Geneabloggers. Today I want to introduce you to my great-great grandfather, George Herzog!  
George Herzog Immigrated to America from Germany in 1860 and stayed with his brother, Charles.

He served in the Civil War, after he had immigrated to America. He was a Corporal in the Regimented Calvary Co. B., out of New York. His papers state that he enlisted January 2, 1864. I do believe that the last time he enlisted was the second time and I am still working on that.  I have his enlistment and discharge papers attached.  Also there is a photo of him in his War uniform.  My Cousin, Cary has his metalsthat were on that uniform!  My parentsmet up with him the last couple of years.  While he was in Tennessee, he met his wife, Sara Satira Outlaw.  From what I understand, they were true to their name and called Outlaw for a reason……ha!  Oh the pandoras box that we open when we do genealogy!  He was a gifted painter and very artistic!  Below you see a color copy of one of his beautiful paintings!


Nevertheless, heres his statement from his claim of a pension:

He states the following in his Claim for Pension:

I was discharged from the service in 1865. At Albany, New York, I then went to Purely, TN, first. Afterwards, to Camden, near Bethel, TN. I remained there some over seven years. After that time, I went to California, where my brother and nephew are residents. 

People in general, at the time, I lived in TN, where there were a great deal Prejudiced against Union soldiers. Consequently, after I came away from that State, I have never corresponded with any person from there, nor do I know of any one that could or would testify in my behalf. After my arrival in CA, I lived with my brother in Yreka for some time. Afterwards, I made residence on Bogus Creek, 22 miles north of Yreka and been living there ever since. 

Some of the oldest settlers that lived on Bogus for the first three years of any residence there, and could testify to me, have left here years ago and their whereabouts is unknown to me at present. 

I do not know of any names of officers, surgeons since discharge who would be able to Testify.


Signed, 
George Herzog

I am a granddaughter of Cicero Herzog. My Aunt Esther passed away recently, and I came across several documents, letters, and documents that belonged to or concerned George Herzog. I would be happy to provide some photocopies that could fill in some gaps.
