For more than fifty years, Chas.
Wells, who was born in Beachlake,
on Washington's Birthday, February
22, 1837, has wandered all over the
United States In quest of health.
Last Summer the longing to return
to his native heath and seo whether
any of the home folks, whom he had
not seen for more than half a cen

living, became too strong to be re

came to the county seat where he
was overjoyed to find his brother,
Stephen Wells, hale and hearty, and
living at 47 Prospect street.
'Mr. Wells has had a remarkable
career. He has travelled over near

This is his story as he told it to a
Citizen man on the Court House

said. " My father's name was Geo.

a big family. There were eleven of

three years. I had the asthma so
badly, I had to move about from
place to place for twenty-two years.

I stayed there about two and a half

Mrs. Clarinda Bunnell, who lives
with Mr. and Mrs. Ulysse3 F.- Beers,
at No. 303 Fifteenth street, In our
borough (Mrs. Bunnell being her
daughter), has the distinction, so far
as can be ascertained, of being the
oldest pensioner of the Civil war now
living. She is In her ninety-sixth
year, Having been born on March
7, 1816. She is the widow of Zebu-
Ion Pike Bunnell, who died some half
dozen years before the war opened
In August, 18G2, a company of In

for service in the Union army; Its
members being chiefly from Hones

MRS. CLARINDA BUNNELL,
Tho Oldest Living Civil War Pension
er Ih tho United States.
Captain James L. Mumford, of
Honesdale; First Lieutenant Joseph
Atkinson, of Hawley; Second Lieu
tenant Charles M. Ball, of Hones
dale; and Wm. Mulr,-of-Hawley, was
orderly sergeant. Among the pri
vates was Ellery J. Bunnell, a son of
Mrs. Clarinda Bunnell, then in his
twenty-first year. His parents were
opposed to his enlistment, but he
told them that he would be of age In
a short time, having been born Nov.
15, 1,841, and would then enlist
either with or without their consent.
With this prospect ahead they con
sented, and he was mustered into
the service on August 15, 18C2.
Having reached Harrlsburg, the
company was mustered into the ser
vice as Company G, 141st Pennsylva
nia volunteers, and a little later this
regiment was placed In the first bri
gade, first division, third corps, Army
of the Potomac. The brigade was
commanded by Gen. Robinson; the
division by Gen. Blrney; and the
corps by Gen. Stoneman. While on
the way to Washington by rail, in the
latter part of August, the 141st
could hear the cannonading during
the second Bull Run campaign.
The regiment went through the
Fredericksburg campaign, in Decem
ber, 18C2, and the Chancellorvllle
campaign In May, 1863. After the
former campaign, Gen. Robinson was
promoted to the command of a di
vision in the first corps, and was re
placed by Gen. Graham as brigade
commander; while Gen. Stoneman
was transferred to a cavalry com
mand, and was succeeded by Gen.
Sickles as corps commander. At
Chancellorvllle, the 141st lost, In
killed and wounded, more than half

number of prisoners. Capt. Mumford
was killed, Lieut. Atkinson was
wounded in the shoulder, and Lieut.

bullet. Considerable sickness follow

dent to this campaign, and among
those who suffered was young Bun

his furlough was extended. Mean'
time the Confederate army under
General Lee set out on an Invasion
of tho North. On learning that they
had entered Pennsylvania, Bunnell
resolved on returning to his regi
ment. He was not yet fit for duty.
and his family tried to dissuade him
irom returning, as he was under no
obligation to go; but he determined
not to be absent from duty when
the enemy was on Pennsylvania soil.
The battle of Gettysburg opened on
Wednesday, July 1. 1863. The third
corps was then at Emmitsburg, about
twelve miles southward. Early In
the afternoon. It received an order to
hasten to the scene of action, and set
off at double-quick. The 141st was
the rear guard on that day, and with
tho duty of picking up stragglers,
and keeping the line moving, Its
march was not so repaid. About
duBk, it joined the brigade near the
western slope of Cemetery Rldne.
about two miles south of Gettysburg.
On Thursday morning, while pre
paring for action, young Bunnell ap
peared before Orderly Sergeant Mulr,
saying, " I roport for duty, and I
want a gun and ammunition." Tho
Sergeant renlled. ' I havo no suns:
there are only the guns the men are
carrying. Besides, you have no busi
ness here; you are on Blck furlough.

care about that," said Bunnell. "I

came here to help the boys out, and
don't want any furlough while the
rebs are 1n Pennsylvania. All I
want is a gun and ammunition, and
I'll do duty, furlough or no fur
lough." His comrades tried to dis
suade him from this, saying, ' You
are not supposed to be here; you are
supposed to ibe home on sick fur
lough, and nobody will have a right
to blame you for staying out. You
are a fool to take the chance of be
ing killed when you are not required
to, and it is your business to stay
out, when you have a right to." But
all to no purpose. The young man
went on a search for a gun and am
munition, and somewhere in the first
corps found them among men who
had been wounded during the pre
ceding day. Before the action be
gan, he took his place in the ranks.
His regiment was stationed on a
sunken road running from the Em
mitsburg road to Cemetery Ridge, on
the northern edge of the historic
Peach Orchard. After a short ar
tillery fire, a body of Confederates
began to move at double quick from
the Emmitsburg road toward Little
Round Top, about 200 years south
of the sunken road. The conforma
tion of the intervening ground was
such that the cannon could not be
depressed so as to reach them, and a
'line of infantry, among which was
the 141st Pa., was hurried to a posi
tion south and east of the peach or
chard, where they opened a mus
ketry fire on the Confederate column,
which was pushing on a double
quick toward Little Round Top.
The Confederates paid no attention
to this, but some of their Infantry
or sharpshooters along the Emmits
burg road opened a scattering fire
on the Union line. One of tho first
Union soldiers killed by this fire wis
