Fishers: (This may be the stray David Shatto you mention born about 1840)
I found a David Shatto, of 7th Regiment Company B, who seems to fit the
story handed down by family member, but for the part of his being a prisoner
who starved to death in Libby prison. See the two somewhat discrepant
records below that I found on the GENWEB. One record has him buried 3 Oct
1862 in the Military Asylum Cemetery, Washington, DC. The other has him
dying 4 Oct 1863 in Washington, DC. The units can be reconciled if Regiment
7 is the 7th Reserve of record one. The dates are discrepant but so
similar they could be the same person with the discrepancy due to faulty
transcription of written records. It very well could be that this David had
been captured, starved and repatriated with a prisoner exchange - and then
died in Washington before he could recover.
I would suspect he is the son of John Shatto and Sarah Shade. They have a
David, who according to the 1850 census household (send out by Theresa Berg
earlier - courtesy of Bob Morton), who would have been born in 1842-3.
Also, it appears there were at least two other brother in the Civil War:
George Washington Shatto (who died - also a prisoner), Alexander P.
Would very much like to hear more about this David Shatto family. It is new
