Notes for Byron Stanbery: BYRON STANBERY Byron was born Jan.1, 1846 in Sandusky, Ohio the son of Moses Andrew and Alena Mackey. He died Jan.3, 1930 in Deerfield, Mich. Moses died when Byron was seven years old, leaving behind his wife and two small children, Byron and sister Frances. His mother remarried and they moved to Michigan. He enlisted in the Army Jan.12, 1861 at Whitford, Mich. He was 5'3", had brown hair and listed his occupation as farmer. Believe he must have lied about his age as he was only fifteen, not the required sixteen years of age. However this was easily fibbed, as it was common to write the number sixteen on a piece of paper, place it in the shoe, and then swear they were "over sixteen". Perhaps he did this. He served with the Michigan 15th Infantry Company H under 1st Lt. Charles Bisbee. He saw action in the Western campaign including Shiloh, Siege of Atlanta , Sherman's March to the Sea and the Grand Review of the Troops in Washington, DC. He was promoted to Corporal and then to Sgt. At the Battle of Corinth Miss. he was knocked down and run over by the wheel of a caison of a Flying Battery, injured in the chest. He was discharged Oct. 13,1865 in Little Rock, Arkansas. He returned home to Michigan. On Oct. 19, 1873 he married Mariah Diver, daughter of John & Nancy Diver of Deerfield. They were married in Petersburg by J H Gage, Justice of the Peace. They took up residence in a log cabin built on 40 acres of land that lay in the middle of section 35 northwest of Deerfield behind the Diver farm. Both their first and last born died many miles apart on the same day, April 25, 1918. It is said that Mariah's heart was broken and that she never fully recovered from the tragedy. Mariah died Aug. 19, 1922 in Deerfield, buried in the Deerfield Village Cemetery. Joining her in the family plot are Byron, Elwood, Mazie, Lena and Gertrude. Mariah's parents are also buried in the Village Cemetery. Byron was Postmaster of the Village for many years and a Justice of the Peace. Family tradition states he was quite a colorful speaker on the Civil War. 1846 January 1st Eire Co Ohio Byron born believe in Sandusky 1850 Father Moses A Stanbery & wife Lena operating a tavern & boarding house in the new village ofLansing MiIt was built in the fall of 1847 and was not completely finished, rooms on the first floorstill needed to be plastered, three floors several rooms 1851 April-Family moves back to Perkins Twp, Eire Co, Ohio 1850-52 Sister Frances born unk if in Lansing or Ohio 1852 August 29th Moses dies-Byron only 6 1/2 years old 1855 Mother, Lena remarries to Lorenzo YoungMariah born in Monroe Co 1856 Half sister Ellen (Ella) born Ohio 1858 Half sister Leota (Lottie) born Ohio 1861 Half brother Lewis born Ohio 1862 January 12 Byron enrolled in 15th Michigan VolunteerRegiment under Col.
