Johnson, Sidney
Saunders Loses Four Men
Its Soldiers Die of Disease – Sidney Johnson Last Victim

Wahoo, Neb., Oct. 4 – Although Saunders county has no company in either of the three regiments now in the field, she has suffered more than her share of the disasters of war. Within the past week four of Saunders county’s best young men have given up their lives, the victims of disease. W.F. Primley, Jr., a member of company J, Second regiment, died at Omaha a few days ago. Will Hodec and Orr Simpson, both of the Third regiment, died on Friday of last week at Pablo Beach, and this morning the sad intelligence arrived at Wahoo that Sidney Johnson of company K also had passed away at Pablo Beach.
All of the latter three were members of the Third regiment, and were among the best young men of our county. The remains of Will Hodec will arrive this evening and the funeral will be conducted under the auspices of the Grand army post of this city.
The remains of Sidney Johnson will probably be shipped here for interment, but the date of the arrival is unknown at this time. Sidney Johnson was a son of Captain Eric Johnson, proprietor of the New Era, and was clerk of his company. W.F. Primley, Jr., was a son of W.F. Primley of the Mead Advocate of the town of Mead. Will Hodec has a windowed mother in Wahoo. By his industry he had paid off a mortgage on his mother’s home and was in every way an estimable young man. Others of the Second regiment are here on sick furlough.
