The Lowell Star, Aug. 17, 1872, page 5, column 3, had a list of soldiers who were supporters of Grant in that election. Among them was a Perry Hathaway, listed as having served with the 73rd Ind. This may or may not have been the same man as the W. Hathaway from the 73rd IN Inf. that is listed on the Three Creeks Monument. However, since people often used middle names in place of first names, it could be that the W. Hathaway on the monument and the Perry Hathaway in the newspaper are the same man.
