  • Notes 
    • Joseph Tuers is the 2nd great grandfather of Richard Mann.

      Marriage certificate of his daughter held by Richard Mann
      National Archives information has supplied everything except for his name. Civil War pension was applied for 3/5/1907 per the Act of 2/6/1907. Mann holds a copy of the application and the Act. The application shows that he was 79 at the time of the application and it was witnessed by Edward Kimble and Peter G Speer who stated they knew him for 20 years. The Notary who signed the application was Henry Speer of Upper Montclair, NJ.
      Enlistment papers show that he enlisted in the Army in Paterson, NJ on 9/1/1862. He was a Private in K Company, 25th Regiment, NJ Volunteers. He was discharged 6/20/1863 in Beverly, NJ. He is shown as being 5' 91/2" tall with blue eyes and sandy hair. His occupation at the time of enlistment was blacksmith. I have a copy of his service records dated 6/22/1889. His preliminary pension application dated 3/18/1898 showed his wife's name, marriage date and location and the names living children with names and birth dates. The minister that performed the marriage was Rev Domine Bogardus. The widows application shows the date of death but not the year. Based on the Widow's Act the year could have been 1907 or 1908. I have used 1908 because it appears they were very quick about taking advantage of the pensions when they were approved.
      The location of the burial is from the cemetery information. They show the cause of death as a Fistula. He was living in the Soldier's Home at the time of his death.
    • Civil War pension was applied for in 5 Mar 1907 (2nd great granson, Richard Mann, holds copies). Witnesses were Edward Kimble and Peter G Speer, who knew him for over 20 years. He enlisted in Paterson, Nj on 1 Sep 1862. At the time of enlistment, he was 5 feet, 9 inches tall, had blue eyes and sandy hair.

      He was living in the Soldiers Home at the time of his pension application and death.
