Benjamin Franklin Edy, Erie Regiment

Serving with Edwin in Co. C, 111th Pennsylvania Volunteers was his step-brother, Sgt. Benjamin Franklin Edy (1836-1917) who is mentioned frequently as “Ben” throughout Edwin’s letters and he has added a note in one or two of Edwin’s letters to his mother. There is only one letter written exclusively by Benjamin and this was written very early in the war when he was a private in Co. G of the “Erie Regiment” under the command of D. W. Hutchinson. This regiment mustered in on 21 April 1861 and disbanded after 3 months service.
