Stories

He won the Kearney Cross at the battle of Chancellorsville; this was a medal awarded to enlisted men who showed exceptional merit. His company was one of those cut off at the Hazel Grove. He retired as a Corporal after completing his two-year term a few days later. The 38th had a hard war, and apparently George was wounded, as he claimed that scar tissue obstructed and finally destroyed the vision in his right eye. His parents were Philip C. Traver, an inventor and maker of pianos who died in 1853 at Newburgh NY; and Sarah ----, a native of Ireland, who survived him.
