An Interesting Story of the War Facts that are
Stranger than Fietion.
There is now living in Cincinnati a family
the history of which forms something so ro
mantic as to constitute a most interesting
In the summer of 1859, Charles Geroux
became a graduate of a college in the south
ern paat of this State. He wa3 the descen
dant of an aristocratic family who lived in
Louisiana, and, to be brief, he -was then a
full embodiment of the " chivalry," just hav
ing entered his majority. While attending
college he had formed the acquaintance of
Clara G , who attended a college for
young ladies in this city, which acquaintance
ripened into attachment and love, and, just
before the breaking out of the rebellion, they
were married, and removed South. JHiss
G was an orphan, possessed ot a consid
erable property, which was held in trust by
her uncle, a Southern minister, who had
raised her from infancy, and personally su
perintended her education. In addition to
the endowments of a collegiate education,
she was possessed of a strong character, bor
dering almost on the masculine, but tempered
with a sweetness and mildness not often
combined in the same person. She was at
once handsome and womanly.
Within a year after their marriage and
settlement in the South, came the fierce, wild
blasts of war from Sumter's parapet, and
there was none more ready to enter the deadly
fray than Charles Geroux. His political tu
tors were practical secessionists, and he en
tered upon the war with a fervor and zeal to
command the admiration of his friends, and
which secured him a major's commission.
His wife opposed his mad scheme with all
the power of a woman's eloquence, but to no
avail. She openly espoused the cause of the
Union, and steadfastly refused to co-operate
with her new friends and neighbors. Not
withstanding her love for the old flag, and
open Unionism, her husband loved her, and
while her husband was at home the neigh
bors respected her. Geroux invested all his
ready 2m,"rty, which included his wife's
fortune, in Confederate bonds, placed them
in her hands, gave her a kiss for a short
farewell, assuring her that tiie war would
soon be over, and, marching at the head of
a victorious column of his country's defen
ders, she would be proud to welcome him.
After his departure, her treatment by his rel
atives and neighbors became almost intoler
able because of her hatred of secession.
After two years of service in the Confede
rate army, he was captured a prisoner by the
victorious Sherman, ia his march to Atlanta,
and sent to Camp Douglas.
This was good news to his wife, who
could no longer endure the persecutions she
received at the South, and she resolved to
make her way North and rejoin him in his
prison home, and if she could not secure his
pardon, to at least stay near him. Her Con
federate bonds were worthless, and she was
penniless; she made her way to the Mississip
pi river, and took passage on the ill-fated
steamer Sultana for the North ; she sold some
jewelry for money sufficient to carry iier to
Chicago. Arriving at Memphis, her child
was taken very ill, and by the advice of the
captain of the Sultana, she remained there to
secure medical aid for the child. Within
twenty-four hours thereafter the boiler of the
Sultana exploded, and twelve hundred lives
Geroux fared ill at ease in Camp Douglas,
and made many stratagems to escape. He
finally succeeded in bribing a raw sentinel to
let him pass; and to avoid pursuit, a resort
to deception became necessary. A comrade
of his was on the point of death. His iues3
dressed the dead soldier in the Major's uni
form, and conveyed him to the dead house,
and gave his name as " Major Charles Geroux,
Third Louisiana regiment, Confederate States
army." The next morning the body was
taken away and buried, and the rank, name,
regiment, and place of burial, were duly, re
corded in the register of Camp Douglas lead
by C. H. Jordan, the undertaker for the
Government at Chicago. That night Geroux
escaped. His absence created no inquiry, as
ha was reported dead. For the purpose of
avoiding public roads and conveyances, he
took a horse from the pasture near Camp
Douglas, belonging to J. L. Hancock, for
merly President of the Board of Trade of
Chicago, and by avoiding public roads as
much as possible, reached Momence the next
day. His actions excited suspicion, and he
was arrested on suspiciop of having stolen
the horse, and was lodged in the Kankakee
jail. He was taken out on a writ of hahcas
corpus, and no proof being found to hold him,
he was discharged.
Coming thence to this city, he obtained a
situation in a wholesale grocery house.
After the usual delays in passing letters
through the lines, he learned that his two
brothers were killed in the battle of the Wil
derness, that his father's estate had been
confiscated to the United States Government,
and his father had voluntarily exiled him
self to Mexico. Of his wife and child, the
only information was that they had sought
to get North, and took passage on the Sul
tana, since which they had not been heard
of, and no doubt remained that they had
perished. His true position bad been studi
ously concealed, and he avoided his former
acquaintances. Shortly after he received
this intelligence from the South. Sherman
had started on his grand march from Atlan
ta, and Graut marshaled his grand army be
fore Petersburg, and the Confederate States
army vanished almost as a vision. During
the past summer, Geroux returned to the
South, and was fully confirmed in the infor
mation he had received about his family, and
that his real estate had also been confiscated..
He gave his wife and child up as lost, and
returned to Cincinnati.
Alter his wife and child had remained in
Memphis, and escaped the disaster of the
Sultana, she started for Chicago, and reach
ed Camp Douglas. Impatient at the delay,
she hastened there with expectations high to
meet him who was dearer to her than life.
The reader can picture to himself the agony
of this sad wife. A stranger, destitute of
money, carrying iu her arms a weakly child
not yet recovered from a servere illness, and
she herself worn out with fatigue and anxie
ty, when she learned that her husband was
dead. There was no doubt of his death ; the
registry kept at Camp Douglas showed it,
and the grave was pointed out to her, which
bore this description on a pine board :
"Majoh. Chart.es Gerocx,
Third Louisiana Infantry P
' The same grave this day is neatly sodded
over, and at its bead grows a rose-bush.
Broken-hearted and bowed down with
grief, she wended her way on foot to the
great city ot Chicago not knowing why she
went. A stranger among strangers, with no
one to aid or pity her, save the good God,
who, in her inmost lieart, she believed had
She was taken in and cared for by the
Sistera of Charity until she could hear from
her friends in Ohio, from whom she had re
ceived no intelligence for the past four years.
A letter was received, stating that immedi
ately after the war her uncle had died, and
that soon after his widow had removed to
Iroquois county, Illinois, to live with her
married son. Mrs. Geroux was supplied
with money to enable her to find her friends
in Iroquois county, where she has since re
sided. Geroux returned to his situation at Cin
cinnati, and was sent by his firm to collect a
debt due in Iroquois county. While there,
he sought out the attorney who had him
discharged on the habeas corpus to learn the
whereabouts of the horse that did him such
good service, and to secure his assistance in
collecting his debt. He soon made himself
known, and while they were discussing about
the stolen horse, a lady and child entered the
same office. There was a momentary pause,
and husband and wife were in each other's
arms. We shall not attempt to describe the
scene which followed. The husband found
a wife and child whom he firmly believed
to be dead, and the wife found a husband
over whose grave she had shed bitter tears
Mrs. Geroux was visiting the sahie attor
ney to find out about her husband's confiscated
property, and to apply to the Government to
have his property restored to her. Cincin

30th of July, lsiil, and used without a stamp, it
cannot afterwards be cUectually stamped. Any

ment to appropriately stamp it, renders him lia

When two or more persons join in the execution
of an instrument, the stamps to which this instru
ment is liable under the law, may be affixed and
cancelled by one of the parties.
In conveyances of real estate, the law provides
that, the stamp affixed must answer to the value
of the estate on interest conveyed.
No stamp is required on any warrant of attor
ney accompanying a bond or note, when such
bond or note has atlixed thereto the stamp or
stamps denoting the duty required, and whenever
any bond or note is secured by mortgage, but one
stamp duty is required on such papers, such
stamp duty being the highest rates required for
such instruments, or either of them. In such a
case a note or memorandum of the value or de
nomination of the stamp affixed should be made
upon the margin or in the acknowledgement of
the instrument which is not stamped.
