Indiana Democrat - May 7, 1962



Casualties incurred on Edisto Island, South Carolina.


The recent letter published in the Harrisburg Telegraph, gives the particulars of the skirmish on Edisto Island, South Carolina, in which the gallant 55th Regiment, commanded by Colonel Richard White, composed almost entirely of Indiana, Cambria, and Bedford county men, were engaged.

The following is the list of casualities to wit:

Killed: William Cunningham, Company F

Wounded: John Steffe, Company F, and prisoner

Prisoners: Company F: Lieut McIllheny, Corporal Samuel Moorehead, Privates: Abram Coy, Robert H. Kritzer, Samuel Campbell, Nicholas Cameron, John L. Taylor, Andrew Faren, Noah Fisher, & L. L. Thompson.

Company K: John Saupp and Jonas Ritchey

Company H: Sergeant Silas Gollipher, Walter E. Garlinger, Isaac Ream, Whitaker, John Mars, Thomas Lockard, and John Warning.

Twenty one prisoners and one killed.

We are well acquainted with Messrs. Saupp (who has since been found dead), Gollipher, Garlinger, Richey and Ream, all Bedford County men. They were noble young men, and we are sorry to hear of their sad fate.
