Samuel S. Mock
1828 - 1907

Nancy Fisher submitted the following information from the National Archives Records on Samuel S. Mock, Civil War Veteran from Bedford County:

Samuel was drafted and mustered into service in Chambersburg, PA on September 21, 1864
as a Pvt. in Co. B., 91st Reg't., Penn. Infantry.

Samuel was 36 years old and a shoemaker by trade.

Notice that Samuel had to pay for his gun and accoutrements.
(Nancy has explained that Samuel had lost his gun and accoutrements and it was for this
he had to pay for the second allotment.)

Discharged by General Order No. 94.

Samuel was mustered out of service on May 30, 1865.
Notice that Samuel was never paid for his apparel (payment to which he was entitled),
until after he was mustered out.
Something about this seems strangely familiar today, doesn't it?

Thanks to Nancy Fisher for supplying this information about Samuel S. Mock's Civil War service.
