About (USA) Nathaniel Simpson Siggins

Served as a musician (fifer) in Co. C, 83rd Pennsylvania Infantry Parent of Estella May, Luella, Harry, Percy W. and Merta S.

1890 Veterans Schedule: Siggins, Nathaniel S. Musician; Company: C; Pa. Inf.; Enlistee 8-6-1861; Discharged: 9-20-1864; served 3 years one month and 14 days.

Nathaniel, the fourth son, was one of the first to enlist when the call came for volunteers for the Civil War; he served his country well for three years; he was serving in the capacity of a musician, having a decided talent for the use of the fife and drum and he loved martial music and folk songs, and was always ready to do his part in caring for his wounded companions. He carried his brother James (147) from the battlefield on one occasion at the risk of his own life. He did much to keep up the spirits of his comrades; his fund of wit and humor seemed exhaustible. His letters to his betrothed, Amanda M. Switzer, whom he married at the close of the war, were models of poetic composition, portraying the pathetic and tragic incidents of his family life at the front. His stories and poems written for the local papers were of genuine literary merit. He enlisted in Company C, 83rd Infantry Regiment Pennsylvania on August 29, 1861 and was discharged on September 20, 1864.

While he carried neither gun nor sword, as a rule, his service was none the less conspicuous and efficient. He enjoyed the distinction of being the best known man, personally, in the regiment, except the colonel. In battle he slipped the fife into his pocket and shouldered and fired his gun with the best of them. He died at Bradford, Pa. on January 26, 1893.
