     MILITARY: 16 Simeon (son of Daniel), 21, born in Trimble Co, KY, enrolled in Company B, 54th Mounted Infantry Regiment of Kentucky Volunteers on 29 Sep 1864 at New Castle, KY for one year. He was 24 years old, a farmer, with gray eyes, light hair, fair complexion, and six feet tall. In Oct through Dec 1864 he was in the hospital at Lexington [KY?]. He was mustered out on 1 Sep 1865 @ Louisville, KY. He was due pay from enlistment, was given $30.50 clothing allowance and was due $66.66 for bounty.

     WIDOW'S PENSION: 16 Pauline applied for a pension [claim 319.202, certificate 242.995] based on Simeon's military service. William R and Daniel F Garriott were listed as only children under 16 years of age when their father, Simeon, died. In an affidavit, William Walker states, "That on or about the 1st of January, 1865, at Camp Nelson and Lexington, State of Kentucky, said Simeon Garriott was disabled in the line of duty just off a raid after the Rebble and destroying their supplies he complained of cold, pain in left side and back. He was laid up in hospital in Lexington, KY and in the summer as late as June 1865 said Simeon Garriott was sick. He had a yelo color and was disable to perform duty, and was excused from duty several weeks."
     AFFIDAVIT: In a general affidavit Joseph F Butler, age 45, claims he was in the same company as Simeon Garriott and was well acquainted with Garriott and saw him occasionally after discharge. "At one time about Christmas 1864 our company got divided..... and Garriott was not in part of company I was in. We united about March 1865 and Garriott rejoined the company at Bardstown [KY?] and remained with the company until discharge at Louisville. Garriott was never well after returning to the company at Bardstown.... even after our discharge. Garriott was a resolute man, and one not likely to complain unless he was suffering considerably."
