GOTHARD, Gustavus Augustus Henry Co. C, 16TN Cav. Bn.; Co. A, 4TN Cav.
The Gothards were originally from Pendleton District, S.C., and they moved to Rhea Co., TN, in 1810. His parents were M. Larkin and Louise Taylor Gothard. Louise Taylor was the daughter of Robert and Katie Sevier Taylor, who lived at Watauga in the Washington District. Born April 10, 1844 at Sale Creek, he ran away from home to enlist at Knoxville, June 16, 1861. Later he transfered to Rucker's Legion, 16TN Cav. Bn., to serve alongside his father, Larkin Gothard. He fought at Fishing Creek, Perryville, and Chickamauga, and was wounded at Philadelphia, TN, then captured and held at Chatt. until the surrender. Henry Gothard often served as a scout and, if apprehended, he was still so youthful that he could say he was out looking for the family cows. He actually had been sent away after the cows when he first ran off to the army. At Philadelphia, TN, Oct., 1863, Henry Gothard was severely wounded when he was hit in the head with artillery shrapnel and bled profusely. He was left for dead on the battlefield, but he was rescued by two young women. He was nursed in nearby homes and by slaves in the woods, then a silver piece was inserted in the back of his head where a bone had been shot away. He rejoined the army and fought with Vaughn's Brigade in the Shenandoah campaign, at Cedar Creek and New Market. In early 1865, Gothard was given permission along with two companions to deliver the unit's mail back to Rhea Co. His boat overturned on the Clinch River, and he was captured and imprisoned at Chatt. A family historian said he ""was falsely accused, along with others, of the murder of the Federal provost marshal at Athens, TN He was also falsely told that Gen. Lee had already surrendered. He was given a choice of taking the oath to the United States or hanging immediately for the murder. He had no way of knowing that Lee had not yet surrendered, but he knew he was innocent of the murder (Records show that he had not been near Athens in many months). So he took the oath on March 2 and walked to his home in Rhea Co. Because of the bitter feeling against ex-Confederates, Gothard went west and spent several years in MO, GA and TX before returning to HC where he married Nancy Louisa McKeown. They resided for many years at St. Elmo, where he was the gatekeeper at Forest Hills Cemetery. He died Oct. 7, 1932 and was buried at FH.
