    Funeral of Lieut. Buss
    Clinton, July 24, 1863
    Mr. Editor:---Thrice during the past eight days have our citizens been called upon to follow to the grave the remains of friends, who have fallen either on the field of battle, or by reason of wounds there received. Today funeral solemnities have been held over the remains of Lieut. Elisha G. Buss of Sterling, but long a resident of Clinton. When the 15th regiment first went out he left as a private in Co. C. As a reward for valiant conduct and bravery he was promoted to a second lieutenancy, and a short time previous to the battle of Gettysburg, he received a commission as first lieutenant.
    He fell on that bloody field pierced by four bullets. Being carried to a hospital he appeared to be reviving, and anxious to see his new England friends again, he was taken home. But the journey was to fatiguing to him to endure, and he rapidly failed, and about a week after his return he calmly breathed his last, having offered up life as his sacrifice for his country’s good. He died July 23, aged 30 years.
    Ever relying upon his own energies and abilities, his rapid advancement in the pathway of military honor is all the more creditable to him. this dependence was not upon the favor of others of more extended influence, but upon himself. as a citizen he was universally beloved and respected; as a officer hw had few equals in like position to his own, as his superior officers will testify.
    Faithfully has the family circle to which he belongs fulfilled its duty to our country in this its hour of calamity. One son has just ended a period of service; another is still at his post of duty in the army; a third fell at Antietam; while we have this day laid the remains of the fourth and last in a soldiers grave in our own cemetery, in accordance with his final request.
    The funeral services were attended at the Baptist church this afternoon. A large audience were in attendance, including many members of the “immortal fifteenth.” Several officers from out of town were present, among whom we noticed Lieut. Col. Studley of the 51st, formerly of the 15th, and Capt. Walter Gale of Northboro. Rev. Mr. Bowers conducted the excercises of the occcasion, alluding in fitting terms to the high esteem in which the deceased was ever held by his townsmen and friends, and to his many virtues, which rendered him so truly an object of affectionate regard.
  • The Worcester County, Massachusetts, Probate Index for 1863 gives his residence as Clinton and shows that there was an official administration of his estate.
  • On 24 Aug 1863 Elizabeth Buss received a pension to surviving family member based on Elisha's service; his mother, received certificate number 8136.
  • Elizabeth, his mother, outlived Elisha and died on 7 May 1876 at Plaistow, Rockingham County, New Hampshire, and it was registered in Clinton at age 75.
  • On 4 Jun 1879, Elizabeth Goddard was dropped from the pension rolls this is apparently her being dropped from the rolls.
  • In 1896, Elisha was included in "The History of Clinton, Massachusetts."
  • Credits: Primary photo above by permission of the Worcester Historical Museum, Ward Collection.
  • From Ford's history -
    Lieutenant Elisha G. Buss was a native of Sterling, but had been for some years a resident of Clinton when the war broke out. He enlisted as a private but had been promoted on account of merit, so that before the battle of Gettysburg he had received a commission as lieutenant. He fell pierced by four bullets. As he seemed to be reviving after he was taken to the hospital, those in charge assented to his ernest request to be taken home. The journey was too much for him to bear in his exhausted condition, and about a week after his arrival, he died, July 23. Many of the former soldiers of the Fifteenth attended his funeral on the 24th. Rev. C. M. Bowers conducted the services and expressed the high esteem in which he was held by his townsmen and comrades."

    Dear mother
    I write these few lines to you hoping to find you you in good health as this leaves me in at present. I was paid yesterday. I received two months pay. They did not stopit. I am going to send you 12 dollars in this letter.
    You can tell Thomas Harral that I wrote a letter to him sometime ago and got no answer.
    They owe us three months pay yet. I would have sent you more but I had to buy something to eat. I lost that medal and ??? I want you to send me another.
    No more at present.
    George Buttler.

He has however been improving slowly, and his friends here were believing that he would soon be able to return to his home, when suddenly the information reached his wife a few days since, that he was dead. Under the circumstances, his death is indeed a sad blow to her; and we are sure that she has the sympathy of our entire population. This adds another to the list of Webster’s martyred sons, sacrificed upon the alter of country and liberty.
    We publish below a letter received by the wife of the deceased, a fortnight before his death. It possesses especial interest in being the last token of affection she can ever receive from him.

    Smoketown Hospital
    Oct. 21, 1862
    My dear Wife:
    I have got a friend to write you a few lines, to let you know that I am yet in the land of the living, although suffering a severe wound received in the Battle of Antietam. I was struck by a ball in the right thigh, close to the hip joint, the ball passing through the limb, fracturing the bone, and has proved very painful, but is doing as well as can be expected under the circumstances. We are very well situated, and have as good care as can be expected. It will doubtless take some time for my wound to heal so that I can be moved: but as soon as it is considered safe I shall be sent home. I hope the time is not far distant when we shall meet each other again, in that happy home where we have spent so many days: and may it be our lot to enjoy a renewal of those scenes which have been so ardently enjoyed by us and our friends. For the realization of all this prospective happiness, we must trust that Being who doeth all things well. Don’t borrow any trouble about me, you nor mother, for I feel pursuaded that we shall yet enjoy a long life together, after separation for a few weeks or months longer. I think I shall then know how to appreciate a home, and the presence of those I hold dear.
    I will Write again as soon as circumstances will permit; when I am able to write myself, I will give you a full account of all that occurred during the battle, so far as relates to myself. I shall anxiously expect an answer to this, which do not delay unneccesarily. I have not received any pay for six months, wages for that time being now due. It cannot be long before payment will be made.
    From your affectionate husband
    Henry Butler.
