Surname Saturday: Krise

The Krise family actively participated in the Civil War. Brothers Stephen, Daniel and Henry, along with brothers-in-law, Joshua Cretin and Daniel Brand; and nephews William Ryan and John Albert Nagle all served with Union forces. Joshua fell at Antietam, William in 1863 and Daniel is buried in Alexandria National Cemetery having died in August 1864.
Daniel & Henry serving with the Pennsylvania 11th Company A fought and were captured during the Battle of Gaines’ Mill June 27, 1862. They were held at Belle Island until the Regiment was exchanged August 5, 1862.

My great-great-grandfather Steven Krise served as a Private in the 3rd Maryland, PHB. This is his discharge paper from the Union Army.
