E.H.D. Pue

Edward Hill Dorsey Pue, of Bel Air, Maryland, was wounded on eleven separate occasions during the Civil War. It reminds me of a quote by Oscar Wilde, "To lose one parent may be regarded as a misfortune; to lose both looks like carelessness." The man must have been absurdly dogged. In spite of it all, he survived the war to live another four decades. He is buried at Saint Mary's in Emmorton, Maryland.

EHD Pue may be listed in "Biographical Record of Harford and Cecil Counties, Maryland," I can't remember for sure. It was published in 1897 and reprinted in 1989. He is mentioned in W.W. Goldsborough's "The Maryland Line in the Confederate Army," published in 1900. "Pue, Edward H. D. Promoted as Lieutenant. Held No. 1 right of the line of First Virginia Cavalry for three years. Wounded at Gettysburg, Spotsylvania, Ream's Station, and in the Valley of Virginia."

Does anyone know if Ferdinand C. Pue (buried in St. Mark's Episcopal Church Cemetery in Highland, MD) ever served in the Civil War.

There are two Listings for an F. C. Pue at the National Park Service Civil War Soldiers and Sailors System: one for first regiment Maryland Cav. CS and one for 1st Reg. VA. Cav. CS. I imagine that's Ferdinand C. Pue. http://www.itd.nps.gov/cwss/
