Sorry for getting back on this almost a year later. The only thing we have on William H. Prouty is from our genealogy. There are around 200 more Prouty's that fought in the Civil War and it is truly a pain to track them all down.
We have found pensions for 132 of them. We know which ones were killed, wounded, captured etc.
We are very blessed to have such an outstanding genealogy. My grandmother passed that on to us about 4 years ago. It was a complete shock. I would have just been happy to have had 1 family member in the war. The genealogy goes back to 1081AD in England. The first Prouty (Proute), how it was spelled at the time) was a 14 years old boy, alone and he left Bristol (Rodmarton) England and arrived at Plymouth, Massachusetts in 1667. Some local Indians attacked the settlements around 1668 for Richard was 16 and able to "Bear arms".
Richard had 21 kids, a few died as babies, but enough survived that by the time of the Civil War (190 years later) just about every state North and South had Prouty's on rolls. Even out west, California, Oregon, Denver, Nebraska, Kansas etc. Never found a Prouty in New Hampshire, New Jersey and Delaware.
They are all on the National Archives soldier/sailor website. I took that information, our genealogy book and the state adjutant records at the LOC and they matched pretty well. That's just one side of the family, the Prouty's put out the most soldiers. For the South they fought in Texas and Georgia. A few of them are mentioned in the OR's.
PS. Yes that is very accurate according to our genealogy book on William H. Prouty. We do know that his company flag was not captured in West Virginia early in the war. Several other 1st Georgia (Ramsey) company flags were captured.
Have a good morning,
