WYANT, Henry - Private, Co. G. Born about 1822 in Armstrong Co., PA, son of Martin & Christina (Booher) Wyant. Married 1856 to Elizabeth Hartzell. Mustered in 10 Jan 62 a 40 year old Laborer.

Died 15 June 1864 at Andersonville, GA. Grave #1977. There is some conflicting info regarding the exact date of his death. 28 Nov 1864 NY Times states his death as June 15, 1864. 3 Dec 1864 Pittsburgh Dispatch states that he died July 15th. Widow, Elizabeth, applied 20 Feb 1865 for a pension. #83626/111781. It contains a deposition by a comrade who stated that he saw him dead and laid out, and died about July 4 but not positive. 6 Aug 1885 National Tribune contains an article from a former POW, who was an medical assistant at Andersonville Hospital. He described the hospital and listed deaths in his diary - H. Wyant, G, 103 Pa. Died “June 17”. Believe that the 15 June 1864 death date is probably correct.
