Pvt. Henry Dent, USCT 19th Regiment, Company K

HENRY "Private-USCT" DENT
HENRY DENT was born around 1825 in Bryantown, CHARLES CO, MD. He died 12 May 1883 in Baltimore, MD. HENRY was owned by THOMAS OWEN BEAN, and then given to his daughter, LUCINDA BEAN as a Wedding Present when she married WILLIAM HENRY GOUGH on 30 JANUARY 1844 in CHARLES COUNTY, MARYLAND. THOMAS OWEN BEAN, LUCINDA BEAN, WILLIAM HENRY GOUGH went to church at TRINITY PARISH CHURCH in Charles County, Maryland.

At age 24, HENRY married JULLIANNE SMOOT on 11 Nov 1849 in TRINITY PARISH, CHARLES CO, MD, Register #3, 1830-1852, p. 107. JULLIANNE was born 1832 in Charles County, MD. The cite specifically says "Henry, servant of W. H. Gough to Jullianne, servant of Theop. Smoot on November 11, 1849." So, we see that Jullianne was owned by THEOPHILUS SMOOT (who attended ALL FAITH PARISH CHURCH in St. Mary’s County, Maryland). She died 1868 in Charles County, MD. They had the following children:
+ 15 M i. JAMES HENRY DENT-53 was born about 1851. He was baptized on May 7,

MARCILLA was born 1860.

19 M v. ADDISON DENT-52 was born 1862 in Charles County, Maryland. ADDISON

was baptized on 3 May 1863 in ALL FAITH PARISH EPISCOPAL CHURCH ,

which is recorded in their COLORED BAPTISMAL RECORD, HUNTERSVILLE,

MARYLAND, p. 73, "On May 3, 1863, Adson, infant of Julia Ann, servant

(slave) of T. SMOOT was baptized." ADDISON was also found in the 1880

Charles County, Bryantown census with SOPHIA DENT (1864).

20 F vi. SOPHIA DENT-51 was born 1864 in Charles Co., Md. She shows up in the

1880 Charles Co., Md census.

"Maryland Dept." mdx@mail.pratt.lib.md.us Subject: Slavery in Maryland
"In 1860, the state still had 90,000 slaves. During the Civil War Maryland remained in the Union. Legislators refused President Abraham Lincoln's offer of compensated emancipation, although many slaves escaped to freedom by claiming their masters were disloyal. The state was not included in the 1863 Emancipation Proclamation; however, after it was promulgated the federal government began massive recruitment of African Americans into the Union Army--first free blacks, then the slaves of consenting owners. Eventually at least one third of Maryland's enslaved black men fought in the military. In 1864 Maryland took up the question of abolition. With the aid of a large soldier vote, slavery was narrowly abolished. However, the state passed a stringent Black Code, limiting African Americans' freedom of travel and forbidding court testimony. Slaveowners retained control over at least 2,500 children under the "apprentice" system, and through them their parents. Also, judges routinely sentenced blacks guilty of minor offenses to terms of slavery. Only federal civil rights laws and black activism in succeeding years ended these abuses." The Enclyclopedia of African-American Culture and History, edited by Jack Salzman, David Lionel Smith and Cornel West, Volume 3, page 1707, 1996, MacMillan Library Reference USA Simon & Schuster MacMillan, ND

Abraham Lincoln gave his approval for recruiting slaves, thusly, in Washington on October 2?, 1863:

"To recruiting free negroes, no objection.

To recruiting slaves of disloyal owners, no objection.

To recruiting slaves of loyal owners, with their consent, no objection.

To conducting offensively, while recruiting, and to carrying away slaves

not suitable for recruits, objection.
The 19th Regiment of Infantry, United States Colored Troops, Maryland Volunteers, was organized on December 15, 1863 by Brig. General Birney, U.S.V., at Benedict, Maryland. It was composed largely of colored men from Southern Maryland and the Eastern Shore of Maryland. After training at Camp Stanton, Benedict, Maryland, the regiment was assigned provost duty at Baltimore, ordered there on March 1, 1864. "It acquired great proficiency in discipline and drill, and performed provost duty at Baltimore City, which notwithstanding the prejudice against the colored troops, their bearing and military qualities, challenged, merited and obtained general approval and great credit. "

He was LUCINDA BEAN GOUGH’s Foreman. He moved up from being her carrier driver. Leslie Howard Owens in her article "The Black Slave Driver" describes the foreman as one "among those slaves most important to the functioning and harmony of plantation life, the slave driver (foreman) held a slight edge. His hut, perhaps a little larger and better furnished than those of his neighbors, sometimes stood in the center of the slave community. On farms with only a few bondsmen, although there might be no slave known officially as a slave driver, there was usually one who served from time to time as a field lead. His duties in the fields could have considerable impact on the behavior of fellow bondsmen and were crucial to the economic well-being of the slaveholder. One master wrote: "A man would do better to have a good Negro driver, than to have an overseer.....Another noted: "The head driver is the most important negro on the plantation." What manner of men were these foremen? One ex-driver said simply: "I allers use my sense for help me `long; jes' like Brer Rabbit. `Fo' de wah ol Marse Heywood mek me he driber on he place......Slaveholders' comments provide some other insights. "Nearly every large plantation further South," wrote J.D. B. De Bow, "has a driver, who is a negro advanced to the post from his good character and intelligence." Good character meant any variety of things depending on the situation; most important, however, the driver maintained his position only if he also had the ability to extract work from fellow slaves. James Henry Hammond of South Carolina noted in his plantation book that the driver "is to
be treated with more respect than any negro by both master."

In JANUARY 1864, HENRY DENT was sent to the store by his slaveowner LUCINDA BEAN GOUGH. He was abducted and enlisted in the 19th Regiment, Company K of the U. S. COLORED TROOPS against his will on January 16, 1864. After a few days in the USCT, HENRY managed to get a message back to LUCINDA that he wanted her to come get him out of the service. LUCINDA sent her son to fetch him back. The Regiment officials gave her son papers that she could take to the government to collect the Bounty for him. However, Wm Birney denies that slaves were abducted into the US Colored Troops some 12 days later.

ENDORSEMENT BY THE SUPERINTENDENT OF MARYLAND BLACK RECRUITMENT TO THE BUREAU OF COLORED TROOPS

Camp Stanton {Md.}, Jan. 28, 1864.

No slaves whatever have been mustered by me against their will; and no free persons. Every person prior to muster has full opportunity to say whether or not he will enter the service or not. I do not keep my recruits under guard.

Slaveholders have frequently offered me their slaves, provided I would take them by force. I have uniformly declined having any thing to do with forcing them, although if the slaveholders had brought the men to me, I should have taken them, the orders recognising their right to enlist them.

Nine owners out of ten will insist upon it that their slaves are much attached to them and would not leave them unless enticed or forced away. My conviction is that this is a delusion. I have yet to see a slave of this kind. If their families could be cared for or taken with them, the whole slave population of Maryland would make its exodus to Washington.

Wm Birney
From the U.S. COLORED TROOPS, 19TH Regiment, Company K, Pension and Military File, we get this description of HENRY DENT:

He was described as being age 37, 5 feet 7 1/2 inches - 6 feet tall, 150 lbs., dark complexion, black eyes, black hair, born in Charles County, Maryland, Occupation - Farmer. Enlisted January 1864 in St. Mary's County, by Lt. Phelps; Mustered out of U.S. Service January 15, 1867 at Brownsville, Texas while absent sick by Capt. Lockwood. Later another paper says he was due $300, and that the total amount of clothing drawn was $36.07.

After training at Camp Stanton, Benedict, Maryland, the regiment was assigned provost duty at Baltimore, ordered there on March 1, 1864. "It acquired great proficiency in discipline and drill, and performed provost duty at Baltimore City, which notwithstanding the prejudice against the colored troops, their bearing and military qualities, challenged, merited and obtained general approval and great credit. "

While walking guard duty between January 16, 1864 and March 1, 1864, HENRY became ill. Just a few months later, HENRY DENT was absent sick from roll call from March 10, 1864 until his discharge much later. He was taken from Camp Stanton, St. Mary's County, Md. by boat to MCKIM's HOSPITAL in Baltimore, Maryland. He never made it to Camp Birney.

EMANCIPATION for the Maryland slaves came November 11, 1864. However, many slaves were not freed on that date. HENRY DENT was mustered out or discharged on AUGUST 14, 1865 in Baltimore, Maryland from MCKIM's HOSPITAL, almost a year after the Emancipation, with a Soldier's Certificate of Disability for Discharge. Three (3) years later, HENRY DENT was mustered out of the U.S. Service again on JANUARY 15, 1867 at BROWNSVILLE, TEXAS while listed as being absent sick by Capt. Lockwood. Later, another paper in his pension file says he was due $300 Ordinary Bounty, and he drew a total amount of clothing of $36.07.

Henry applied for his pension in 1865. He had other people vouch for his reputation for "truth and varacity which was above reproach", and that he had a "good, stout, strong body" before he entered the service against his will. DR. HEZEKIAH H. BEAN, LUCINDA’s brother; THOMAS B. GOUGH (1846), LUCINDA’s son; J. HENRY DENT, HENRY DENT’s son; his friends: WILLIAM WOODLAND (1826), MARY A. WOODLAND (1838/40), CATHARINE BURROUGHS (1832), ELIZA BRISCOE (1859); JOSEPH TURNER, HALEY/HEALY H. CURTIS, MARY R. BROWN (1848), JAMES W. PINCKNEY, WILLIAM J. TAYLOR, SYLVANUS THOMAS, CHAPMAN DORSEY, AMANDA HOOPER, CATHERINE BURKE gave depositions for HENRY. DR. HEZEKIAH H. BEAN testified that he had been HENRY DENT’s doctor since 1847.

Prominent white citizens in Southern Maryland, such as DRS. THOMAS BARBER and THOMAS A. CARRICO; WILLIAM H. BRAWNER, and Charlotte Hall’s Postmaster, THEOPHILUS HARRISON (July 5, 1826 - March 19, 1882), who was appointed twice on June 12, 1852 and June 29, 1865, also gave depositions for HENRY DENT.

THEOPHILUS HARRISON (widower, merchant) married MARY E. DENT (1846) on August 14, 1865.
He was a relative of the Amelia Harrison who married THEOPHILUS SMOOT, the slaveowner of JULLIANNE SMOOT, HENRY’s wife. THEOPHILUS HARRISON attended the same church that HENRY DENT and JULLIANNE SMOOT had their son baptized in.

Both WILLIAM H. BRAWNER and THEOPHILUS HARRISON said that they knew HENRY DENT from the community in which they lived. THEOPHILUS said the he knew HENRY when he was a little boy, and that he would see HENRY when he visited the neighborhood. THEOPHILUS HARRISON, LUCINDA BEAN GOUGH, and HENRY DENT were approximately around the same age.

On AUGUST 15, 1865, HENRY started to receive $2 a month pension. However, he was not a freed man as far as his former slaveowner was concerned. LUCY GOUGH drew her 1st payment of $50 Bounty Roll money for HENRY DENT on July 1864. However, LUCINDA "LUCY" (BEAN) GOUGH MANUMITTED him retroactive to the date of his being taken and inducted into the U. S. Colored Troops on August 26, 1865. She went to the CLERK OF CHARLES COUNTY and registered this act in the LAND RECORDS LEDGER BOOK. On AUGUST 31, 1865, LUCINDA GOUGH wrote a LETTER OF CERTIFICATION that she OWNED HENRY DENT prior to him being taken by the soldiers.

Even though HENRY was receiving his $2 a month pension as of AUGUST 15, 1865, on SEPTEMBER 26, 1865, he took an OATH OF IDENTITY for his pension, and answered questions to help fill out a form labeled "INVALID'S ARMY PENSION." HENRY'S application for a PENSION is dated OCTOBER 10, 1865.

His wife JULLIANNE, former slave of THEOPHILUS SMOOT, died around August 1868 in Charles Co., Md. At least, HENRY had 3 years with JULLIANNE after his release from the US Colored Troops before she died.

On MARCH 11, 1868, HENRY's pension payment was advanced to $4 a month. Over a year later on NOVEMBER 9, 1869, DR. H. H. BEAN testified for HENRY DENT'S Pension File.

Two years after JULLIANNE’s death on APRIL 24, 1870, at age 45, HENRY married SARAH DOTSON-DODSON on Apr 1870 at "THE GLEBE", Charles County, Maryland. Sarah was born in 1853 in Charles County, Maryland. They were together when the 1870 CHARLES COUNTY CENSUS, 4th DIST., P.O. BRYANTOWN, MARYLAND, #412-412, pp. 65-66, line 40 to line 6 of the next page, was taken. HENRY DENT declared that he had $100 PERSONAL PROPERTY. Later in 1871, HENRY migrated to BALTIMORE with his new wife only. He left his teenage children by themselves in CHARLES COUNTY, MARYLAND.

Henry and Sarah had:

Your family history is interesting. The detail is incredible. I have gone through all the names and have come to the conclusion that Henry Dent was probably moved to Louden Cemetery as there is information that the graves of civil war soldiers were moved or he is in a grave here that is marked unknown. Sorry I couldn't help you more. Let me know if any of my information would be of interest to you.

" Clothing for slaves was ordered by the gross, muslim and calico for hot weather and linsey-woolsey for winter. Some masters dressed their slaves in homespun garments woven and sewn by the slaves." "Rough leather shoes were made by the plantation cobbler, or stiff broughans were bought in only two or three sizes. Both types rubbed blisters on the feet, one reason slaves went barefoot as much as possible. Cato a slave in Alabama remembered how he cried when his master brought him "red russetts from town" for he didn't want to wear no rawhide shoes." Alabama THE HISTORY OF A DEEP SOUTH STATE, PP98-99
