In the fall of 1927, Nathan Hathaway, a corporal in the battery during the war, wrote to the government pension office in Washington, enquiring if any of his comrades were surviving, and if so, their place of residence. The reply he received listed the following:

James Adrian                         Lorimar, Iowa
John C. Goodwin                    Waterloo, Nebraska
Hannaniah W. Hemingway     Champaign, Illinois
Isaac N. Lewis                        Boscobel, Wisconsin
Price A. Richards                    Big Cabin, Oklahoma
Charles W. Wuetig                  Blue Island, Illinois
