Joseph Warren Roberts1

b. 3 February 1834, d. 16 May 1864
     Joseph Warren Roberts was born on 3 February 1834 at Albany, VT.1 He was the son of William Roberts and Nancy Hoyt Bean.1 Joseph Warren Roberts married Margaret Caroline Rice on 5 May 1854 at North Granby, Hartford Co., CT.1 Joseph Warren Roberts died on 16 May 1864 at Drury's Bluff, VA, at age 30.1

Joseph was a shoemaker. On September 1861, Joseph Warren roberts and his brother Chalres Watson roberts enlisted from Granville, Massachusetts in company F, 27th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry. They wre mustered on 20 September 1861. At the time of their enlistment, Charles gave his age as 21 and Joseph as 27. Joseph evidently displayed natural leadership qualities; he was made a corporal at the time of hi senlistment, and on 1 January 1862 he was appointed sergeant.

The 27th Mass. engaged in a number of battles during the next two and a half years but was not to meet its biggest test until May 1864. On 15 May the regiment was ordered to the extreme right of the Army of the James near Drury's Bluff, Virginia. The Reigment's historian, W. P. Derby, a participant in the battle that followed, notes that there were "thousands of acts of personal bravery of which we cannnot speak." We do not know what such acts Joseph, as a leader of company F., may havae performed before he was overcome, but his service record shows that the "was killed in Action on the 16th Day of May 1864 near Fort Darling Va." 2

Ham Allen Barnes1

b. 1834, d. 18 June 1864
     Ham Allen Barnes was born in 1834 at Granby, Hartford Co., CT.1 He was the son of Allen Barnes and Emmeline Loomis.1 Ham Allen Barnes married Adelaide Sarah Roberts, daughter of William Roberts and Nancy Hoyt Bean, on 14 October 1855 at Southwick, Hampden Co., MA.1 Ham Allen Barnes died on 18 June 1864 at Mt. Pleasant Hospital, Washington, DC.1 He was buried on 30 June 1864 at East Hartland Cemetery, East Hartland, Hartford Co., CT.1

On 2 August 1862, Ham enlisted in Company E, Sixteenth Connecticut Regiment Infantry, the same unit his brother-in-law, John Obadiah Roberts, had joined the week before. At the time of his enlistment, Ham gave his place of residence as Hartland, Connecticut, his age as 28, and his occupation as farmer. Ham was mustered in on 24 August 1862.

The new unit, without the benefit of drill or training, was immediately ordered south and soon met its biggest test. On 15 September, the federal army, led by General McClellan, outnumbered some 18,000 Confederalt soldiers on the high ground behind Antietam Creek by a margin of two to one. Yet through McClellan's ineffective military tactics, the fight which began on the Confederate left remained a stalemate as the two sides clashed in the woods, the cornfield, Bloody Lane, and Dunkard Church -- some of the bloodiest fighting of the entire Civil War.

Shortly after noon, the left side of McClellan's line, including the 16th Connecticut, took up the battle with General Burnside in command. It ook nearly three long hours to cross Antietam Creek as Burnside attempted to get this men across a narrow structure that has gone down in history as "Burnside's Bridge." By mid afternoon, the 16th, presumably including Ham Allen Barnes and John Obediah Roberts, had reached the high ground overlooking Sharpsburg and had begun heading for the town itself.

Defeat for Lee's Confederate army seemed imminent when suddenly reinforcements arrived from Harper's Ferry after a forced march, surprising the untrained Union troops. Ham Barnes was wounded in the ensuing fighting and was apparently taken to a temporary medical facility set up in a nearby barn. Finally, Burnside pulled his men back, and the battle ended in an apparent draw.

Ham Barnes returned home to his family and was officially discharged for disability 26 October 1863. However, on 23 November 1863 the War Department created the Second Regiment, C.V. Heavy Artillery from what had been the 19th Connecticut Regiment Infantry and amended the recruitment qualifications. Ham met the new standards for Aritllery and volunteered to serve his country once again. On 5 January 1864, he enlisted and was mustered into the Second Regiment.

The regiment joined the Army of the Potomac near Fredericksburg on 20 May 1864 and was assigned to the Second Brigade, First Division, Sixth Army Corps. On 26 May it was assigned to tear up railroad track near Noel's Station, Virginia. The History of the Second Connecticut Volunteer Heavy Artillery briefly describes Ham's fate:

"Ham A. Barnes. Wounded or injured at Noel's Station near North Anna River, May 26, 1864, while tearing up railraod track. Died at Mount Pleasant Hospital." 2
