Isaiah E. Davis
105th Pennsylvania Volunteers
Source: Brookville Republican, July 6, 1864;
We are pained to learn from a letter written by Chaplain Truesdale to Mrs. Davis, that her husband, Sergeant I. E. Davis, Company I, 105th P. V., was killed on the 19th inst. Mr. Truesdale writes that while he was sitting quietly in camp, he was shot in the back of the head; he lived a few hours, but was unconscious. The ball which struck him was the only one fired by the rebels in that direction during the day. Mr. Davis was one of the best citizens of Knox Township, where he leaves a wife and four children to mourn the loss of a fond husband and father. He was one of the very best men in the 105th, and in his death the service has lost a noble soldier.
