      Couch also had a son in the Army of the Potomac who fought with a
      Massachusetts regiment IIRC, and was presumed killed at Cold Harbor
      in 1864. At least, he was never heard from again following that
      battle. Maybe Couch took a leave of absence at this time, before
      heading west (just speculating).

      outside of the scope of this group, but for what it is worth when
      Couch took command his headquarters was at Chambersburg and the
      Department consisted of all of Pennsylvania east of Johnstown. By
      the end of the month headquarters was at Harrisburg. Subsequently
      the western half of the state and part of Ohio was added to the
      Department. When Cadwalader took over headquarters was announced as
      being at Philadelphia.
