    John C. Southmayd, farmer and contractor, P. O. Eau Claire, was born in Ossian township, Allegany county, N. J. January 9, 1837. He is the grandson of Robert Southmayd, of Connecticut, and a son of Samuel and Martha (Rathburn) Southmayd, of the same state. He attended the district school until he was sixteen years old, and at the age of twenty began life for himself, working as a farmer and contractor. In September, 1862, he enlisted in the army, Company H, One Hundred and Sixtieth Regiment of New York, and served his country a little over three years, being discharged November 1, 1865, at Savannah, Ga. On November 1, 1863, he was promoted from a private to a sergeant. The battles in which he fought were as follows: In 1863 - Gun Boat Cotton, January 13 - 14; Fort Bisland, April 13 - 14; siege of Port Hudson, May 26 - July 8; before Port Hudson, June 11 - 14; surrender of Port Hudson, July 8; Donaldville, July 15; Sabin Pass, Tex., September 8; Cassion Crow Bayou, La., October; 1864 - Sabin Cross Roads, La., April 8; Pleasant Hill, La., April 9; Cane River, La., April 24; Mansura Plains, La., May; Snicker's Ford, Va., July; Winchester, Va., September 19; Fisher's Hill, Va. September 22; Cedar Creek, Va., October 19; New Market, Va., September 24; Newtown, Va., November 12. After receiving his discharge he returned home, and in 1866 came to Eau Claire county, Wis., and rafted lumber until 1871, when he purchased his present farm of eighty acres in section two, Union township. Here he has carried on general farming and stock raising. In 1878 Mr. Southmayd injured his foot so badly at Badger Mills that it was necessary to have it amputated. He was married in 1862 to Miss Lucinda Phillips, daughter of Wilson and Eliza Phillips. She died in 1885, and in 1888 he married Miss Elizabeth Jane Leland, of Union township, daughter of Robert and Maria Leland. The children of the first marriage were Leona L., Blanche Janette, Grace Eliza and Floyd. The issue of the second marriage is Mildred Minerva. Mr. Southmayd is a member of the Eagle Post, G. A. R. and for thirteen consecutive years has filled the office of town treasurer. He is a republican in politics.
