Henry Warden Thornton, was born 1 October 1825, Culpeper Co., Virginia. His family moved to Gallia Co., Ohio when he was about eight. On 11 October 1864, Henry enlisted as a private in Company K of the Ohio 78th. On a march through Georgia, Henry grew ill and was unable to keep up with the regiment, which subsequently left him behind! Back home, Henry had served as lay leader of a Methodist congregation. And now, resting on a fence in the countryside, he prayed to God saying, "If I am so unworthy as to be left behind, amen to it". Isaiah 41:10 came to his mind: “Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness”. With renewed strength, Henry was actually caught up with his company! Henry was discharged on 2 June 1865 at a Camp Dennison, Ohio hospital and returned to his home, family and church. He died 20 August 1918, age 92.

Lenhart Leasure was a cousin of my direct line. We have letters from him throughout the war. One at least one site I have seen him listed as a deserter, not sure of the details behind that, but we have letters from him toward the end of the war with the 16th Illinois Cavalry.

Admin reply: Could you send me the info you have for the website? I would very much appreciate it. Thanks. -- CJD
