Aikins, Ichabod—Powell, Catherine—Bond
Source: LEST THEY BE FORGOTTONby J. Arnold Dowd II
Ichabod enlisted in Company F 49th Illinois Infantry on November 17, 1861 to serve in the Civil War and mustered out on January 9, 1865.
Company “F” captured a desirable rebel officer.Somehow this rebel managed to break loose and mount a horse.Ichabod realizing that the rebel was wanted for questioning alive, and that here was a shortage of horses, promptly drew one of his fine Remington revolvers.He took aim and the .36 roared and t he rebel fell to the ground along with his saddle.The only damage done was a split saddle due to Ichabod’s precise aim at the pommel of the wood framed saddle.The result of this heroic, quick-thinking act was that Ichabod was promoted to the rank of Sergeant.
When his youngest son was old enough to travel he packed up his family leaving Fayette, Illinois and headed for the Osage Indian Mission Area in Southeast Kansas.
Ichabod was a rifle smith building the famed Kentucky type rifles.When his youngest son Lawrence was old enough, he not only taught him to hunt, but he also built him a rifle.
