Sally Jane Barnes
George Page was born in WI in August 1840. His parents were Hiram (born in NY) and Sally Jane (born in Ireland). His siblings were Horace (1836), George, Levi (1843), Charles (1846), and Philp (1850).
Page joined the WI 15th Infantry, Company C. The men of the company called themselves the “Norway Bear Hunters,” but they were also known as the Color Company because the regimental Color Guard was attached to their company. His brother, Levi, also served with the WI 15th.
The army listed him as living in Waterford, Racine County, WI, age 23, and unmarried. He enlisted for three years on November 25, 1861 at Waterford, and mustered at Madison, WI on December 2, 1861 as a Private (Menig). He was sick at Mississippi River Island No. 10 on June 11, 1862, became unfit for service, and was discharged in Jacinto, MS on July 25, 1862.
After the war, he remained single and worked as a farmer. He resided last in Chippewa Falls before moving to the Veterans Home in Wauwatosa, WI. He was still living there in 1910.
