Nice bright vignette image ID as Corporal John D. Mahoney. He wears a dark frock coat with Corporal chevrons visible on each arm. Bottom of mount has “J. D. MAHONEY 4TH N. H.” in modern pencil. ID is confirmed by another on-line photograph.

Image has excellent contrast and clarity. Mount and paper have some light surface dirt but nothing of any consequence.

Reverse is blank.

From information gleaned from his grave stone it appears that John D. Mahoney was born in Killarney, County Kerry, Ireland and at some point immigrated to the United States.

He was living in South Berwick, Maine when he enlisted as a Private in Company A, 4th New Hampshire Infantry and was later promoted to Corporal.

The 4th was first assigned to the 10th Corps in the Department of the South. Its first major action came at Pocotaligo, South Carolina. The regiment then moved to take part in the siege of Charleston where it as engaged at Fort Wagner.

Moving to Virginia the regiment saw heavy action at Drewry’s Bluff on May 16, 1864. During this action Corporal Mahoney was captured. He was confined at Libby Prison and Andersonville before being paroled after ten months in captivity.

He was mustered out at Raleigh, North Carolina on August 23, 1865.

John Mahoney died in Lynn, Massachusetts on February 23, 1884 and is buried there in Saint Joseph Cemetery.

Mahoney’s obituary says that he “was of a genial disposition, generous nature and beloved by all that knew him. He served his time in the late war, was a prisoner of war ten months. He faithfully executed every duty required of him in aiding to quell the rebellion. There were none among the noble hearted boys in blue more ready or willing to sacrifice their lives for their beloved country then he.”
