Pvt. Samuel H. Pipes

Company "B" of the 43rd Ohio Infantry ( November 1861 -July 1865)

Samuel H. Pipes was born February 22, 1843 in Greene County Pennsylvania. His parents were William Pipes and Nancy Hayden. William was a son of Joseph Pipes and Susannah McVey. We do not know much about Samuel's service except that he served for 4 years and filed an invalid pension request in 1875 and his widow Nancy A. Nickerson Pipes filed a widow's pension application in September 1909 right after his death. We do not have those pension applications but when we do they will be added here. He passed away from a heart attack on Sept 5th, 1909 in Washington County Pennsylvania and is buried in Washington Cemetery.

We assume from the application as an invalid in 1875 that he was wounded or injured during the war.

Samuel and Nancy were married in 1865 and had one daughter named Alice R. Pipes born in June of 1866. Alice married John Hunnell, had a daughter named Pearl and then John died and she married Abraham Rodgers. Abraham signed Samuels Death Certificate in 1909.
