Corwin Gregory (d. 1862)

Corwin Gregory was from Prescott when he enlisted on August 13, 1862.  He served in Company F of the 30th Wisconsin Infantry.  He died December 13, 1862, at Camp Randall, Madison, Wisconsin.

A letter from another soldier in Company F of the 30th Wisconsin Infantry, then in training at Camp Randall, gives the news of the death of Corwin Gregory.  The letter was printed in The Prescott Journal of December 24, 1862; following is only the portion related to Gregory.

CAMP RANDALL, MADISON, WIS., }
December 14, 1862. }

This Sabbath is a sad one here; a feeling of loneliness pervades the Camp, and a veil of sadness seems to hang at the threshold of every heart.

Death has again knocked at the door of our camp home and demanded the spirit of one of our most promising and best comrades.

CORWIN GREGORY was one of the best of soldiers; ever good-natured and friendly, he has never failed to win the warmest sympathies and friendship of every man in the company.  He had been in the hospital but three days before he died.  Yesterday morning, about seven o’clock, Chaplan Green came down and requested that we should go to the Hospital, as he feared CORWIN was dying, which was the first intimation we had that he was dangerously ill.  He died with apparent ease, and seemed to have his senses.
