Private Henry E. Grippen was my great grand uncle.  He is listed everywhere else as Grippen.  I think the problem is how they made their handwritten "p" years ago, it was fancy and reading it nowadays it is difficult to determine "f" from "p."  

I am from Massachusetts and Henry was from Lanesborough, Massachusetts.  

Henry's regiment, the 49th Massachusetts, was from Pittsfield the next town to Lanesborough.  Most of the privates enlisted for 9 months, so having enlisted on Sep 6, 1862 it looks like he was killed about 2 weeks after his enlistment expired.  He had a brother (Nelson N. Griffin, also misspelled) in the 10th Massachusetts Regiment who was killed at Malvern Hill, and another brother, Sidney Charles Grippen, in the 47th New York Regiment who died in 1887 from the affects of the war.
