   Mar: 1 Apr 1843 at Dearborn IN to Hamilton, Mary 20718. S. F. Covington, now residing at Cincinnati, and John B. Covington, of Rising Sun, are the sons of

   Robert E. and Mary Covington, and the only children, except one son who died in early infancy. 

  

   Hon. Samuel F. Covington, who has won considerable distinction in Cincinnati, Ohio, is a native of Rising Sun.  His early boyhood and manhood were passed

   in the village, as were his maturer years.  He received the benefit of the excellent schools which Rising Sun was fortunate in having, then completed his

   education at Miami University, located in the town of Oxford, Ohio, 

  

   In early life he was employed as a clerk in some of the village stores, for a time was clerk on a steamboat, edited and published a weekly newspaper styled the

    Rising Sun Blade, and subsequently the Madison Courier.  As editor of the Blade he played a conspicuous part in affecting the division of Dearborn County,

   and the formation of Ohio County.  In the absence of the sheriff, as deputy, Mr. Covington was the officer who organized the new county, and served as its first

   auditor. 

  

   He later represented the legislative district, composed of the counties of Switzerland and Ohio, in the State Legislature.  He was admitted to the bar at Rising

   Sun, in 1845.  While a resident of that place, he was for a time engaged in the Ohio River trade, and was connected with the Rising Sun Insurance Company.  

   His name is identified with the growth and improvement of the city which he yet retains great interest in, and most kindly feeling for her citizens.  To such an

   extent is this the case that he keeps up his identity with the place, and is probably better posted in the history of Rising Sun and the surrounding country, than

   any  man in it, as the reader of the foregoing general history may infer from the copious quotations from his writings.

  

    He married his wife in Rising Sun, who was a Miss Hamilton, a daughter of one of the merchants of the village.  Of Mr. Covington's more recent life, reference

   can be found in the chapter on journalism, in the history proper of this volume.  ("HISTORY OF DEARBORN AND OHIO COUNTIES, INDIANA-1885" )

   Jun 1865 at US Civil War aged 20. "Lieut George B Covington, adjutant of the Seventeenth Indiana Volunteers (Wilder's Mounted Infantry). was wounded in an

    engagement near Dallas, Ga., on the 24th of May.  The regiment was forming in the line of battle, and Lieut. Covington was engaged in correcting the line

   when he was shot by a rebel sharpshooter.  The ball entered the left breast, passed through the left lobe of the lungs and lodged in the spinal column.  The

   surgeon pronounced the wound inevitably fatal, and the only hope was that he might possibly live to see home.  Wheeler's rebel cavalry had made a raid in the

   rear of our army, so that he could not be started home till the 30th.  He had to be transported in an ambulance a distance of thirty miles, to Kingston, where he

   was put on the cars for Chattanooga.  While on the cars, between Dalton and Resaca, on the 1st of June, he died. 

  

   The detail which had started home with him had, under instructions of Col. Wilder, in event of death on the way home, the body embalmed at Chattanooga and

   brought on to Nashville, where they were met by Lieut. Covington's parents.  The body was brought to this city and interred on the 9th inst.   George B.

   Covington was born in Rising Sun, March 28, 1845, so that he had but a short time since entered upon his twentieth year. 

  

   He first entered service on July 4, 1861, and went to West Virginia with Col. (now General) Hascal, then commanding the Seventeenth.  He afterward returned

   home, but rejoined the regiment, then under Col. Wiler, September, 1862, and was with Col. Wilder at the several days battle at  Mumfordsville, and was, at the

    surrender of that place, made a prisoner.  He was exchanged at the same time with Col. Wilder, in November, and proceeded with him to the front, and was in

    various engagements proceeding the battle of Stone River. 

  

   The brigade commanded by Col. Wilder, being mounted, was assigned hazardous duties, and was engaged in a great many skirmishes, some of which, in

   other times, would be set down as battles of considerable importance.  It was Wilder's brigade that checked the rebel advance at Chickamauga when Davis'

   and McCook's divisions fell back, and dealt such deadly shots into the rebel lines.  The brigade being armed with Spencer rifles, six-shooters, felt themselves

   competent to cope with six rebel brigades, and they did even more at Chickamauga.  It was for gallant conduct at this battle that Col. Wilder had Lieut.

   Covington promoted to the adjutancy of the Seventeenth.  Lieut. Covington fell at his post and in the discharge of his duty.  H made no complaint of  his fate. 

  

   During the several days he was detained in starting home, after being wounded, the battles were continued, and he was within hearing the roar of cannon and

   the rattle of musketry.  He several times remarked that he wished he was able to be with his regiment. He met death calmly and quietly, as he had often braved

    dangers.  He felt that he was about to die in a holy cause and in the conscientious discharge of a noble duty.  His last words, sent through Col. Wilder to his

   friends at home, were 'Tell father and mother that I have tried to do my duty, and that I die a Christian soldier.' 

  

   The large and solemn concourse that attended his funeral asserts the estimation in which  he was held here, the place of his birth, and the fondness with which

   his memory will be cherished by those who knew him."  On the day of his funeral at Rising Sun, both the circuit court and the commissioner's court, both of

   which were in session, adjourned to attend the funeral, , and that, on motion of Judge Downey, suitable testimonial to his character was placed upon the

   records of the circuit court, and a like testimonial, on motion of Henry Brown, one of the commissioners, was placed upon the records of the commissioner's

   court. ("HISTORY OF DEARBORN AND OHIO COUNTIES, INDIANA-1885" )

   Mother Ref: 6817.  Died: 7 Dec 2003 at LaPorte IN aged 94.  Mar: 25 May 1938 at Cadcade IA to Bisenius, Catherine Mary 6822. 2nd Mar: 8 Apr 1972 at

   LaPorte IN to Niewiadomski, Helen Joan 11008. Was born at 194 Cedar Street, Anamosa IA (is now a parking lot). Went to Anamosa High School  1 Sep

   1923 and graduated on 30 May 1927. Later the same year he moved in with brother Neil Yates and his wife in Freeport IA and his first job was with the

   Burgess Battery Co. He then worked at the Freeport Electric Shop. He says he then "faked" his way to being an electrician first class and moved to Aurora IL

   and worked for the May Electric Co.

  

   His next move in 1930 was to Gary IN where he worked for the National Tube Co, but was laid off as the depression hit in 1932 so at age 23 he returned to

   Anamosa IA where he did some odd electrical jobs and cut wood at the local timber yard. In 1933 he worked for Metcalf Electric Co, before joining the Civilian

   Conservation Corps at their camp in Maquoketa IA on 2 Apr 1934 at a salary of $30 per month.. The camp moved to Cascade IA on 12 Aug 1934 and it was

   here that he met Catharine Bisenius who was to later become his wife. On 17 Oct 1934 the camp moved to a new location at Sigourney IA.

  

   The depression was lifting by 1935 so he decided to leave the U.S. government and he was discharged to take up work at Hall Mfg Co. This was temporary

   and on his 26th birthday he began work for the local Sears store as a radio and refridgeration repair man travelling an area of about 75 miles around Cedar

   Rapids.

  

   They married at St Mary Church in Cascade IA with Msgr. Albers performing the ceremony. The reception was at her parents home and they took a short

   honeymoon trip to Canada via Detroit for one week. They returned to Cedar Rapids.

  

   Sears transferred him to the buying offices in Chicago on 24 Jun 1940 and they lived with her sister and her husband Harry and Hilda Rupkey prior to moving

   into an apartment in Oak Park IL. By 1948 they had 3 children and needed a bigger home so bought a new house under construction in Brookfield. They

   moved in 15 Nov 1948.

  

   He finally retired from Sears after 35 and a half years on 31 Jan 1972. His second marriage took place at the Sacred Heart Church in LaPorte IN. He sold the

   home in Brookfield and also his 2nd wife's home in Laporte IN using the funds to buy a new model home in Cougar Drive in 1972. In 1973 he purchased an

   unimproved property at Bella Vista AR on a large lake retirement area.

  

   He and Helen travelled extensively from 1974 to 1985 all over the U.S. actively seeking information about his early Covington relations. Even after Helen's

   death in 1985 he continued to travel and wintered in Florida until 1992. He had suffered a stroke on 19 Mar 1984 which by 92 was affecting his equilibrium and

    this ruled out long driving. Walking with a cane was satisfactory until 20 Aug 1994 when the use of a walker was made necessary.

  

   His work on the Covington History has been catalogued in a number of volumes: Vol 1 - Runion, Drake, Ross, Howell and Yates. Vol 2 - The Covington

   Families. Vol 3 - The Lisle Covington Family. Vol 4 - Copies of ol diaries including The Rising Sun Covingtons by John Covington Williams, Sauel F Covington
