Simeon Bishop Anstey American Civil War Hero

We have uploaded to the pre-World War One Conflicts Roll of Honour a biography of  Simeon Bishop Anstey of the Devonport Ansteys, who fought during the American Civil War (1861-1865) on the Union side, and died a couple of months after being injured at the Battle of Prairie Grove in 1862. Simeon was also an American Anstey Pioneer, becoming the patriarch of the Kansas, America Ansteys. Anybody who has information they would like to add to this biography, please contact us at

Anybody who has researched their Anstey ancestors’ wartime heroics in pre-World War One Conflicts and wishes for their findings to be uploaded to the Anstey story project website, feel free to contact us.
