Pvt. John William Bangle (1844 - 1925) 106th N.Y. Co F. Captured; Wounded at “Battle of Monocacy”

+3 votes

Private John William Bangle is a civil war veteran having served with the 106th New York Company F. When he was just 18 years of age he enlisted to serve his country at Massena, New York on July 27, 1862. He was captured in action and paroled April 29, 1863 in Fairmont, Va. John was wounded July 9, 1864 during  the “Battle of Monocacy”  and mustered out July 13, 1865 at Finley Hospital in Washington D.C. 

We need help adding sources and connecting him to the Wikitree family. 

See his Find A Grave

Category: 106th Regiment, New York Infantry, United States Civil War

Note: His brothers Joseph and Lewis served in Company F and died during service. Levi Bangle served with 32nd New York Co. A and survived. Upon further review he was in the 92nd N.Y.  Need Levi’s enlistment date with muster out date. 

A civil war family that needs updating. Any help is appreciated.

Looking over the excellent sources you found. I can see he had many impairments disabilities listed from the war. I wonder what the abbreviation “GSW” is interpreted as? 

Thank you Chris smiley

Standard medical abbrev  for ''Gun Shot Wound''
Thank you I’m not good with abbreviations lol

I don’t think Joseph Bangle Jr or Lewis Bangle were ever married. No wives or kids.

5 boys from the family served. The two who died in service I doubt were married or had kids although possible.
Well then, GSW is your learn something new everyday- for today!

New York has a great Civil War resource; http://dmna.ny.gov/historic/reghist/civil/

His regiment's unit history is found here: http://dmna.ny.gov/historic/reghist/civil/infantry/106thInf/106thInfMain.htm

Then scroll down until you find the Unit Roster link, click on it and it will download a PDF of the service records of all members of the regiment, in alphabetical order.

Suggestion mother was Mar Ann Sucese (Soucy?) but can’t find sources

The mother has her name engraved her on grave stone as a Mary A.S. and inscription says wife of Joseph Bangle but I’m having a hard time sourcing her. 

I added cemetery categories to the 5 sons they sent to the civil war and created the new cemetery Sybil Lake cemetery in Vergas Minnesota for Alexander (Elick) as none had been on wiki. 

A huge civil war family! 

Thank you Marion smiley your source cited is definitely the Bangle family of this group
