It started, as good quests always do, with a family tale.

Levi McBride (Susannah, William, Jr, William) was born in Orange Co, New York, about 1820, to parents Susannah Faulkner and Archibald I McBride.

Levi married Hannah S Millspaugh (born about 1823) on September 29th, 1848 in Goshen, Orange Co, New York.

The couple had 2 children:
  • Harrison McBride b. 4 Mar 1848 d. UNK m. Elizabeth LNU
  • Melancthon McBride b. 19 Dec 1850 d. UNK never married

Levi enlisted as a private in the 56th Regiment, Company 'C',  NY infantry September 9th 1861 for a period of three years or during the war. Levi became seriously ill and died at the Convalescent Hospital near Harrison's Landing, VA on October 11th 1862.

Hannah McBride received a widow's pension of $12.00 a month until her death on June 14th 1893. She never remarried.

Levi was originally buried at the Convalescent Camp in Virginia. His remains were later transferred to Alexandria National Cemetery. Private McBride rests in section A grave 544. His widow Hannah is buried at the Brick Church Cemetery in Orange Co, New York.
