  • Notes 
    • 1850 Census Taylor, Owen, Indiana as Ja???Gette.(the question marks are part of the interpretation)
      1870 Census Mariposa, Jasper Iowa states as Lafayette ALLOWAY; born in Indiana.
      1880 Census Dexter, Furnase, Nebraska as Lafeyett ALLWAY
      1900 Census Oxford, Furnas, Nebraska he states he was born in Indiana
    • His farm was 9 miles NE Beaver City, Nebraska.
      His daughter, Alma Thorntons, death certificate states he was born in Pennsylvania. My grandmother, Viola Thornton, was listed on the document as the informant for information given. As she was 71 at the time I feel she misrepresented the place of birth. It should be Indiana. Her grandmother Hanna's father was born in Pennsylvania and I feel she confused that fact.

    • Regimental History
      Twelfth Infantry INDIANA
      (1 year and 3 years)


      Twelfth Infantry. Cols., John M. Wallace, William H. Link,
      Reuben Williams; Lieut.-Cols., William H. Link, Reuben
      Williams, Solomon D. Kempton, James Goodnow, Elbert D.
      Baldwin, George M. Trotter; Majs., George Humphreys, Solomon
      D. Kempton, James Goodnow, Elbert D. Baldwin, George M.
      Trotter, Samuel Boughter, Henry Hubler.

      This regiment was organized at Indianapolis in May, 1861, for
      one year, was mustered in May 11 and left for Evansville June
      11, to take the place of the 11th regiment for blockade duty.
      It left the state on July 23, for Sandy Hook, Md., where it
      was assigned to Abercrombie's brigade, Banks' Army of the
      Shenandoah. Lieut.-Col. Link was promoted to colonel, when
      Col. Wallace resigned, Maj. Humphreys was made lieutenant
      colonel, and Capt. Henry Hubler of Co. E became major.

      The regiment was in camp at Pleasant Valley and Hyattstown
      until Sept. 11, when it moved to Williamstown, where it was on
      picket and outpost duty by companies, with frequent
      skirmishes, until March, 1862. It then marched for
      Winchester, skirmished near there on the 11th, and was the
      first regiment to enter the town the morning following its
      evacuation.

      It engaged in various movements until April 3, was then in
      camp at Warrenton until May 5, and was mustered out at
      Washington on May 14. Its original strength was 788; it
      gained by recruits, 244; total, 1,032. It lost by death, 22;
      desertion 83; unaccounted for, 1.

      The regiment was immediately reorganized at Indianapolis for
      the three years' service, and was mustered in Aug. 17, 1862.
      It left the state a few days later, to meet the threatened
      invasion of Kirby Smith, and participated in the battle of
      Richmond, Ky., where it lost 173 in killed and wounded. Col.
      Link was mortally wounded, most of the men were taken
      prisoners but were paroled and were exchanged in November.

      After the exchange the regiment moved for Holly Springs,
      Miss., and marched to the Tallahatchie River in December. It
      was stationed at Grand Junction in Jan. 1863, and in the
      spring was placed on duty at Collierville, Tenn. It was
      assigned to Logan's (15th) corps, Army of the Tennessee, and
      moved to Vicksburg in June, remaining in the trenches until
      the surrender.

      It then moved to the Big Black River, where it remained until
      Sept. 28, then went to Memphis and participated in the march
      to Chattanooga. In the battle of Missionary Ridge it lost 110
      in killed and wounded, then joined in pursuit of Bragg to
      Graysville, GA, where it was ordered to the relief of Gen.
      Burnside at Knoxville.

      It remained in camp at Scottsboro, Ala., from Dec. 26, 1863,
      to May 1, 1864. In the Atlanta campaign it was engaged at
      Resaca, New Hope Church, Dallas, Kennesaw mountain, and
      Jonesboro, losing 240 men killed and wounded between Dalton
      and Atlanta. It joined in pursuit of Hood through Georgia and
      Alabama and on Nov. 14 moved for Savannah.

      After the surrender of that city the regiment joined in the
      campaign of the Carolinas, being engaged at Columbia and
      Bentonville. It then marched to Raleigh, Richmond and
      Washington, and was mustered out at the last named place June
      8, 1865, the recruits and drafted men being transferred to the
      48th and 59th regiments.

      The original strength of the regiment was 948, and it gained
      by recruits, 384; total, 1,332. Loss by death, 293;
      desertion, 8;unaccounted for, 13
