Those I Have Met, or Boys In Blue, by Harden, 1888 pgs 434, 435, 436, 437, 438, 439 Hon. Charles T. Doxey Was born in Tippecanoe Co., Ind., July 13, 1841. Father's name, William Doxey; Father died in 1844. Mother's name, Catherine Doxey. He was md. in 1864 to Clara, dau of William and Margaret Craycraft; wife died in Sept 1876; md. again in 1878 to Minnie S., dau of Thomas N. and Winnie C. Stilwell; Mother moved to Avoca, IL, about 1854, where Charles bound himself, about 1856, as an apprentice to learn the cabinetmakers trade; worked one year; during good weather made rails, built fences and drove oxen in breaking prairie; rainy weather worked in shop; by mutual consent, apprenticeship released. About 1857 family moved to Goodhue county, Minnesota, where he worked on a farm for $13 p/mo. in summer and in winter worked in a livery stable in Zumbrota. Went back to IL c1858; went to school at Avoca; engaged board at $2.50 p/wk; bought school books on time, and chopped wood at .50 p/cord, nights and mornings, and in timber on Saturdays to pay board & expenses. remained at school 9 mo's that yr. In 1859 he succeeded in getting a situation doing chores, nights and mornings at Fairbury, IL, for board, with Judge W. C. McDowell; remained with McDowell for 2 yrs; went to school 9 mo's each yr; during 3 mo's vacation, usually done job work or work by the day, cutting saw logs, digging wells, making rails, &c. Quit school to enlist; enl. as a pvt in Co A, 19th Ind., at Anderson, Indiana; was made Orderly Sgt. for a few days after enlistment; 3 mo's later was commissioned as Sgt Maj of the 19th Ind.; in Feb 1862, was comm 2nd Lt. in Co I, 19th Ind; Feb 28, 62 resigned as 2nd Lt and helped recruit the 53rd IL Regt at Chicago, IL; had recommendations for Majorship of that regt, but the regt was ordered to the field before filled and before Major was commissioned; was with that regt in the battle of Shiloh as a private soldier, though not at the time enlisted. The regt not being full, and no appt. to be made as Major on that account, he returned to Attica, Ind, and hired to work in a grain warehouse at $13 p/mo. worked about 2 mo's and received a comm from Gov. Morton as 2nd Lt., and ordered to recruit a company for the 72nd Ind. The Co was raised and Doxey elected Captain, and on going to camp the co was transferred to the 16th Ind, which made the regt full, and was then ordered to Richmond, Ky. 10 days after leaving Ind. the battle of Richmond, Ky was fought. Nearly 1/3 of the regt were either killed or wounded and a large number taken prisoners, Capt. Doxey being among the prisoners. The prisoners were parolled the next day, and then returned to Camp Morton, where they were regularly exchanged in about six weeks. The regt was then ordered to Memphis, Tn, then to Vicksburg, and was engaged in Sherman's 1st attack on Vicksburg and at Chickasaw Bluf; next at the battles of Port Gibson, Raymond, Laurel Hill, Champion Hills, Black River Bridge, May 22, charge on Vicksburg, and through the seige to t he surrender of Vicksburg. During the seige was detailed to organize the 4th Mississippi colored regt, and tendered the Colonel's commission. He preferred to stay with his Co. as a Captain. In the fall of 1863 the regt went to New Orleans, and remained there during the winter. In the spring it started on the Red River campaign. In the absence and detail of field officers, Capt Doxey took command of the regt. About March 25, 1864, he was ordered with the regt to gain the rear of Munson's Hill, where a camp of rebels was stationed, by making a night march; succeeded in capturing the picket posts, entered and surprised the camp, captured 450 men of the 2nd La. Regt., the 4th Ms Battery, camp supplies, &c. The next engagement of most moment was on Apr 8 at Sabine Cross Roads. Was ord to protect the right of the Federal line with the 16th Ind, 6th Mo, and a sect. of artillery, and held the position, repulsing a severe cavalry charge. On the next day following, at the battle of Pleasant Hill, he was wounded in the left knee early in the engagement. Later on he was wounded again with a gun shot wound in the face with a Minnie-ball. In this battle they captured the battle flag of the 19th Texas, with many prisoners. In the acct of the battle from the field to the New Orleans "Picayune", Capt Doxey was complimented as being the "young hero of the battle of Pleasant Hill". The conf. flag was presented to Capt Doxey by the regiment for his gallantry on that occasion. He was hauled in an ambulance to the river, and then by boat to New Orleans where he remained in the hospital about 30 days, when he was sent home on leave of absence, totally disabled for 6 mo's. He was then appointed upon Court Martial at Indianapolis, and served on the Board 5 or 6 mo's, then discharged on account of disability, his wound not permitting him to talk. For a year he was compelled to communicate everything by writing. In 1865 he returned to Anderson and went into the brewery business, then in the retail grocery business, and then in the heading and stave business. He remained in the latter bus. about 10 years. He was commissioned in the regular army in 1865 by Secretary Stanton, but the honor offered was declined. After closing out the heading business he engaged in business in Chicago for 3 yrs. returned to Anderson, built the Opera house, and engaged in the banking business; was elected State Senator for the co's of Delaware & Madison in 1876; served 6 yrs as a member of the City Council; was elected to Congress in 1882; eng in bus in New York in 1885, and cont in the same for 2 yrs; ret to Anderson, and is still living there. He was md. in 1864 to Clara, dau of William and Margaret Craycraft; wife died in Sept 1876; md. again in 1878 to Minnie S., dau of Thomas N. and Winnie C. Stilwell; resides on N. Main st, in Anderson, Ind, where he has loved so long and done so much, for thousands of dollars has he invested here in building up its interest. The Doxey music hall will long be an ornament to his enterprise, costing 75 thousand dollars, and built in 1882, which was burnt. Not discouraged, he rebuilt it again, with great splendor, the following yr. All over the city may be found buildings and evidences of his great enterprise. Thousands of men all over the county willingly testify to his liberality as to the wages he has paid to them in the varied pursuits. The Doxey corner, corner of Meridan and Anderson streets, built in 1887, is another monument to his memory. This building is 144 ft by 36 ft, and 2 stories high, stone front, costing $25,000 and is acknowledged to be one of the finest business rooms in the state. His residence is one of beauty and comfort, where he and his accomplished wife delight to welcome their many friends. Mr. Doxey ranks among the most successful business men in the west., and nowhere is he more respected and prized than at his home in the city of Anderson. While his term in Congress was of short duration, it was marked by industry and fidelty, so much so that he was renominated for a 2nd term, with and under great odds against him. He was defeated a few votes by Thomas B. Ward, who he defeated a few months previous in the same district. He is at this writing (1888) engaged with other capitalists in piping natural gas from Madison Co., to Richmond, Ind., requiring great capital and labor. But this only in part illustrates his desire and ability not only to develop the resources and interests of Anderson, but other parts of his country. On the stump Mr. Doxey is logical and deals with facts and figures from a business standpoint, often eloquent, and si listened to with great interest. Perhaps his best effort on the rostrum was at the Doxey music hall, just before the election in 1884, when thousands of his fellow citizens flocked to hear him on the eve of his 2nd candidacy for Congress. It is with great interest to me to thus notice here, however poorly it may be, Mr. Doxey as a citizen, ex-soldier and statesman, and we are glad that the city of Anderson has its **Doxey.** p. not numbered "Doxey House Shoe Store"
