Richard Hohsfield (Horsfeld, Hohsfeld). Co. F. Private

Richard HOHSFIELD served in Company F as a Private throughout the war. Alternative names are Richard HORSFELD (CWSS Record) and Richard HOHSFELD. Richard was a German immigrant who was wounded at the Weldon Railroad in Petersburg, VA, and returned to marry his fiance Theresa and have several children. The family legend is that when he returned to Brooklyn, NY and showed up at Theresa's home, she could not recognize him. She thought he was there to beg for food. It was only after showing her a birthmark on his back that she knew it was Richard. Much of this information has been provided by Richard HOHSFIELD's great great grand-daughter Anna Maria Lavin.
