               3 M        ii.  James William PARKHILL  was born on 29 Nov 1843 in Guernsey Co., Ohio. He died on 28 Jan 1865 in Pocataligo, South Carolina.  The cause of death was gunshot wound. He was buried in Beaufort National Cemetery, South Carolina.

James enlisted into Company "A",  78th Ohio Volunteer Infantry Nov 22, 1861 enlisting as a Private.  On January 5, 1864 the Federal Government offered the unit a bounty of $400.00 per man to re-enlist, they then became a "veteran" unit and continued in the war. He would later attain the rank of Corporal.  James died as the result of a training accident while in camp at Pocataligo, South Carolina. The unit may have been in the area about two weeks when the accident occured. He had been playing ball with some men when a shot rang out resulting in a gunshot wound to the lower back.  James died about 8 hours later.  An investigation revealed that the shot came from a soldier attached to another Ohio Regiment who had fired the shot during a drill in error, the guns were supposed to be empty.

The 78th Ohio was organized under special authority of Ohio Governor Dennison in Zanesville, Ohio under Command of Colonel Mortimer Dormer Leggett on 30 October 1861.

   Deaths dark angel visited this home and ____ spread its wings in flight and snatched the fair _______and the brightest ornaments of our lives.

  Dear brother, we now bid you our last farwell. No more will we see you in the accustomed walks of life, the ones that have known you will know you no more. Oh shall we meet you where the wearied ones rest; where no _____ of dispair chills affections fond breast.

Oh, Henry, through excitment you  ____ even a little while here was given, you planned your wings for flight and soared away to heaven."

(grave unfound yet)

     REF VA file XC02 668 000, and Indiana Archives:  George was a Union soldier during the Civil War. He served as a Private in Company "D", 120th Regiment, Indiana Volunteer Infantry. He enlisted Jan 13, 1864 in Gibson Co., Indiana for a period of  3 years.  Later on March 8, 1864 he would formerly muster in for service. He stood 5'08", fair complexion, blue eyes, light colored hair, occupation was farmer. He was issued an Enfield rifle with bayonet. Residence at time of enlistment; 1st Congressional Dist, Montgomery Twp, Gibson County, Indiana. Among the officers he served under was Captain Albert KNOWLES who later lived in Moberly, Missouri in 1885.  George was paid a bounty of $60.00 for his enlistment. Following the end of the war he was mustered out January 8, 1866 in Raleigh, North Carolina to return home.

    Origins of the 120th Indiana; "During the month of September 1863, Indiana Governor Morton received authority from the War Department to raise eleven regiments of three years volunteers. Under his authority the following infantry regiments were organized: 120th, 123rd, 124th, 128th, 129th, 130th. Their organization having been perfected, they were armed, equipped, and turned over to the command of Brigadier General Alvin P. Hovey, who had been ordered from Chattanooga, by Major General Sherman to proceed to Indianapolis and take charge of the forces. General Hovey at once organized the above regiments into a division. In the month of April this division was sent by rail to Nashville, and from thence joined the 23rd Corps in East Mountains until Summerville was reached, when further pursuit ceased.   On the 30th of October the 23rd Corps was detached from Sheridans Army, and ordered to report to General Thomas at Nashville. The regiment marched with it's corps by way of Chattanooga and reached Columbia, Tennessee on the 24th of November..."

     According to a letter from son George Monroe Mitchell dated March 10, 1952 to the VA the elder Mitchell's Army discharge papers were stolen in the 1910s from the family home. The senior George's grave was unmarked and the son was attempting to obtain a marker for his father.  It is unknown if a marker was ever procured as no records exist in Saline County about the death or burial.  It is possible that he actually died or is buried elsewhere in one of the surrounding counties in Southern Illinois or perhaps across the line into Indiana. Update 9/2003 according to the National Archives no file exists between 1895-1960 requesting a marker for George M. Mitchell.

    Place of marriage to Maggie Parkhill was the brides fathers home, per marriage certificate, singed by " W. R. Burton , Justice of the Peace".  George may have been living in Owensville, Gibson Co., Indiana at time of marriage. 1880 Census; the family lived in Robb, Posey Co., Indiana.

    A pension was approved for him as a Union Veteran of the Civil War in May 1886 due to a disability caused by sickness during the war.  He was awarded $2.00 a month for 1/4 disability. He later filed for an increase due to his inability to work because of the bronchitis.  Years later after his death his widow, Maggie C. (Parkhill) Mitchell would collect a pension.  One signer of an affidavit for pension was Henry C. CREEK, a former Union soldier who had served with George in the war.  According to family legend George was buried in a glass topped coffin. Researchers in Saline and Hamilton Counties, Illinois have been unable to locate the burial plot.  It is most likely an unmarked grave.
