"Daniel Mundon, son of John and Sarah Mundon, was born 5 Aug. 1834 in Wareham, Mass. He enlisted at Medway early in May, and was musterd in to the United States service at Camp Andrew, West Roxbury, 25 May 1871, for three years, as a private of Co. E, 2nd Regt. Mass. Vols. He was detailed as company cook 23 June 1861 to 1 July 1862, and afterwards as an orderly of Lieut. Patterson of Co. E, by whom he was sent out for bread, while on the march from near Frederick MD, over the South Mountain, towards Antietam Creek, 14 Sept. 1862, when he deserted." NFI. He may have fled out west, as teh only refuge available. Apparently Arthur Colburn Mundon was raised by Charles S. Clark after his mother died of tuburculosis (and his father apparently disappeared after deserting from the Union Army!).
