Thomas Coggin Scholes was my 3rd Great-Grandfather.He was married to Harriet Cora (Happing) Hopping (born 2/24/1831 in Wainscott, Long Island, NY) (Died 4/27/1885 W. Burlington, Ia).I have learned that Thomas was in the Civil War at the battle of Shiloh but I do not know where he served (what ship!)He was Third Engineer on the Union Ironclad USS Indianola that was sunk by the confederates.He was in Libbyville (perhaps Libby, Va) prison for 4 yrs.
Thomas remarried R.E. Twentyman but I have no info about that marriage.
Thomas' parents were George Scholes born 1801 in Leeds, Yorkshire and Mary Cogginborn 1805 in Lincolnshire--they married 8/31/1817 in Nottinghamshire, Saint Mary, Nottingham, England.
Thomas died 9/19/1906 in Dunsmuir, California.
