Lt. James S. Develin
DIED
Develin--At Jefferson City, Missouri on the evening of the 24th Nov.,
Lieutenant J.S. Develin of the 3rd Indiana Battery, from the effect of
wounds received in action at Lone Jack, Missouri, August 16, 1862.
The remains of Lieutenant Develin were taken to his home at
Cambridge City, for interment, when they were followed to the grave
by a large circle of sorrowing friends.  The action in which he received
the wounds that resulted in his death, was one of the hardest fought
of the war.  Two guns of the 3rd Indiana Battery, supported by about
six hundred men, fought over four thousand of the enemy,
commanded by Quantrel and other noted guerrilla chiefs.  The
cannoneers were literally hacked to pieces at their guns.  Twice they
drove back the overwhelming tie, and the guns were only taken when
men and horses were all disabled.  The enemy left the wounded on
the field, and thus Lieutenant Develin and his bleeding comrades were
enabled to reach their friends.  He lingered from August 16th until
November 24the, when the gallant young soldier sank to his final rest.
