Sgt. Samuel H. Brougher, Co. C

Samuel H. Brougher was born in Upper Turkeyfoot Twp, Somerset County, PA in 1844. He was one of nine children born to Peter and Elizabeth (Hauger) Brougher. Samuel enlisted as a sergeant in Co. C 142nd PA Infantry on Aug 25, 1862, and died in a hospital in Philadelphia on April 4, 1865, mere days before the surrender of the Army of Northern Virginia. He was laid to rest at Mt. Moriah Cemetery in Philadelphia.
