Ladd of Lowell (born in Alexandria, N. H.), Charles A. Taylor (of unknown residence but enlisted in Boston), all belonging to Co. D, and Sumner H. Needham of Lawrence (born in Bethel, Me.), a member of Co. C. It is a curious fact that, while the bodies of the three other soldiers were brought home with honor and buried with municipal services in Lowell and Lawrence, that of Taylor was buried in an unknown grave in Baltimore, he being taken for a civilian, because of the absence of uniform. His loss was not even known until his overcoat was forwarded to the captain of his company by one who saw him fall. No trace of his family or friends has ever been discovered . . . though a box was received from Boston a short time after the regiment left Baltimore. Hanson's 6th Regiment, p. 48. Gove
