Private Enoch Aurand

Company E, 34th Ohio Infantry

Aurand was born on November 9, 1842. He enlisted and was mustered in the regiment on February 26, 1864. Aurand served about 11 months with the unit before transferring to Company E of the 36th Ohio Infantry. The transfer was due to consolidation of the regiments on February 22, 1865. Aurand served 6 months with the new unit and was mustered out on July 27, 1865 at Wheeling, West Virginia. For unknown reasons, Aurand used the name “Enoch Anson” while he was a member of the Ohio units.

During Aurand’s enlistment, the regiment was part of General Sheridan’s Shenandoah Valley Campaign (August 6-November 28, 1864). The unit lost 13 soldiers, 25 were wounded, and 2 were taken prisoner at the Battle of Winchester on September 19, 1864. The consolidated regiment was sent to West Virginia and remained there until the conclusion of the Civil War.

Aurand died on April 10, 1929 at the age of 86 years. He is buried in the Chapman Cemetery in Chapman (Merrick County), Nebraska. He was the last member of the Elder Post (#158) of the Grand Army of the Republic in Chapman.
