      Death of William Click
      Independence Tribune
      William Click, one of the old pioneers of Havana and the last of his class died on last Saturday. He was a fine citizen, a hard working farmer and strictly honest. He located in that township early in settlement of the country and was a neighbor of the late Mark Horner and George Ripley, who long since passed to their reward.

      The 10th Ky. Cavalry was raised by Col. Joshua Tevis, and organized at Maysville during the summer of 1862. That section of the state had already put six infantry regiments in the field. In July, August and September the 10th was at Covington. At that time the invasion of Kentucky by Gens. Bragg, Kirby Smith and Humphrey Marshall occurred, and the 10th was with the advance, which protected the country about Covington. It did not encounter the enemy prior to the battle of Perryville. After that battle, October 8th, the Confederates retiring from Kentucky, the 10th participated in the pursuit, following Gen. Humphrey Marshall's men through the mountains, capturing prisoners, horses and arms. It remained on duty in Kentucky during the principal part of its service, though in the work of driving the enemy from the state it once entered Tennessee and was once in Virginia. The 10th was employed in the latter part of the year 1862 by battalions. The officers commanding these battalions were Maj. John Mason Brown, Maj. Wm. A. Doniphan, Maj. James M. Taylor, Maj. James L Foley. The services of the 10th Cavalry, while almost altogether in the state, were continuous during its whole term. It was used for the protection and defense of Eastern Kentucky, and during the summer of 1863 was all the time active. It had numerous engagements with the enemy, in which it suffered loss. Among them may be mentioned Elk Fork, Tenn., Glasdesville, Va., Mt. Sterling, Ky., Triplet's Bridge and Lancaster, Ky. It participated in the pursuit and rout of Pegram and Scott; in the course of its service it was rarely at rest, being on active duty all over Eastern Kentucky, and into East Tennessee and West Virginia. It was mustered out of service September 17, 1863, at Maysville, Ky.

      He was captured by Confederate Colonel Clark in 1863 at Mt Sterling, Kentucky and released with a promise of not fighting anymore. Later his records show him in prison camps; 1st at Camp Chase and then at Camp Dennison, Ohio, the largest Civil War encampment in Ohio. Camp Dennison was established as an induction and training center about 18 miles northeast of Cincinnati near the town of Milford.

      Mount Sterling - Montgomery County - Mar 21, 1863 (William captured 1863)
      Confederate forces took the town, gaining 428 prisoners, plus wagons and mules. On December 1st Confederates burned the courthouse. Morgan captured town and approximately $60,000 from the Farmers Bank on June 8, 1864.

      The only engagements fought on Ohio ground occurred during the Morgan raid in the Summer of 1863. The Confederate Cavalry leader, General John Hunt Morgan, and his raiders were defeated by Union Troops at Buffington Island (Meigs County) near Portland and surrendered near West Point, South of Lisbon. For a number of years prior to and throughout the war, however, Ohio was the scene of a bitter struggle between leading abolitionists and arden Southern sympathizers.

      His Civil War pension file states that after he left Tenn he spent time in (1866) Missouri and (1868) Arkansas prior to settling in Montgomery Co. Kansas in 1870. It also divulges that he had a sun stroke which resulted in difficult times for him in the heat. He was a prisoner of war, captured by the Confederates.

      He was not heard from by his family in Tenn until after the death of his father in 1881. He did have visits from his brother, James Gray Click, and during those visits James came by train. Gary's father could remember the visits and while Uncle Jim was there "they had their totties"
