Newspapers

1862-Oct-25, “Ashtabula Weekly Telegraph”

The 105th. — A letter from Capt. Crowell to J. D. Ensign, which appears in the Sentinel says that the loss of tbe Regiment in tbe Perryville fight was very heavy — over sixty killed, and one hundred wounded. I have lost three killed — Asa B. Spaulding, Delos S. Piper, and F. Levitt — my wounded at least fifteen — and total loss as a company is twenty-one in killed, wounded and missing. I brought off the only company that returned from the strife as a company. I had nineteen men of my own and as many more of other companies. We followed Col. Hall and Gen. Terrill. My men fought like tigers, and with Company E, Capt. Canfield, were the last I saw on tbe field of our regiment. I am without injury. Capt. L. D. Kee of Wayne, is dead, also Capt. Wilson of company H.
My wounded are not dangerous if I except J. L. Smith, of Conneaut, who is twice or three times wounded. The Jefferson boys are sound, except J. S. Christy, who is wounded in the leg but not seriously. Lieut. Spaulding is slightly scratched in the leg. Our field officers are all right. The three highest officers in our division were killed, and Col. Hall commands the division. Some of my wounded are thus:
Serg't. Brayman, acting Orderly.
Corp's Gage and Wheaton.
Privates, Frank Baldwin, E.J. Baker, J. L. Christie, D. Lobdell, J. L. Smith, B. Whipple, Wm. Waterman, A. Waterman and W. H. Gaut, S. N. Abbott and — Giddings[2], missing. I took, rank and file into action, fifty-four men.
We have in addition the following names of those killed, but in what camps we are not informed. They were handed in by friends — Harrison Fobes, Plymouth, Fred. Garner, late of Saybrook, Fred Gettes, of Geauga. [3]

W. B. Brayman Dead.
Wm. B. Brayman, for many years a leading attorney In Paola, but since 1890 engaged in the practice of his profession at Pittsburg, Kas., died at his home there last Monday, after an illness of about two weeks. Mr. Brayman was born in Ashtabula-co., Ohio, in 1837. At the breaking out of the civil war he enlisted in an Ohio regiment and served until he received a wound at Perryville, Kentucky, which disabled him from further service. He then took up the study of law and graduated at the State university at Ann Arbor, Michigan, in the class of 1869. He was married to Miss Hannah E. Coonradt, daughter of the late David Coonradt, of Paola, in Michigan, and immediately after graduating from college came to Kansas and opened a law office in Paola. He was elected county attorney of Miami-co. in 1876 and served two years. He was also elected and filled the offices of mayor and councilman of Paola several terms. He established the Paola Times in 1882. He opened a law office in Pittsburg and for several years filled the office of justice of the peace in that city. His first wife died in Paola in 1892 and in 1895 he was again married at Pittsburg, where his second wife died last summer. He was a member of the Masonic fraternity, the G.A. R. and several mutual benefit associations. He leaves three daughters and two sons, Mrs. Clarence Deo, at Girard; Mrs. Ed Atkinson, In Nebraska; Miss Nettie and Ed Brayman, at Pittsburg, and Charles Brayman at McCune. Burial took place at Pittsburg. [5]

1904-Mar-4, “The Western Spirit”

W. B. Brayman died in Pittsburg, Kansas, Monday night February 29th, aged 66 years. Death came of grippe and nervous prostration. He was sick only a short time. Mr. Brayman lived in Paola from 1870 to 1885 when he practiced law and dickered in politics as a Republican. He once got together considerable property here but he lost it all chiefly through the starting of a newspaper, the ill-fated Times, to “get even” with opponents in politics. He was buried in Pittsburg on the 2nd inst. [6]
