      John Hayford Smith was born April 7, 1847 in Atkinson, New Hampshire, the son of Samuel and Lois (Noyes) Smith. He was 15 years of age when he enlisted on Sept. 2, 1862 and was mustered into service that same day as a Private in Co. H, 4th New Hampshire Infantry. Smith stated he was an 18 year-old Farmer at the time of his enlistment. At the time of his muster the 4th N.H. was garrisoned at Beaufort, SC. In the spring of 1863, the Regiment was involved in the attack and capture of Morris Island. It remained at Morris Island until Sept. 1863, when Union forces began the siege of Charleston, SC, an action that lasted for the 4th N.H. until January 15, 1864. Smith, who was struck by illness, was discharged due to disability at Morris Island, SC on October 5, 1863.

      Smith enlisted for a second time on April 22, 1864 and was mustered that same day as a Private in Co. A, 19th Massachusetts Infantry. Two months to the day of his second enlistment, on June 22, 1864, Smith was captured and taken prisoner at the siege of Petersburg, VA. Smith was four months past his 17th birthday when he died at Andersonville on August 15, 1864 due to Debilitas.
