Death: Mar. 12, 1863, Mexico

Married Sophie Katherine Dorothea Tays on 22 Mar 1855 and they had four children: Louise Born 1856, Hermann born 1858, August D. born 1861, and Emma born February 1863.

He was shot in the body below the shoulder by Confederates while crossing the Rio Grande River into Mexico on 18 October 1862. His brothers, Johann Charles "Carl", Heinrich Daniel, and Wilhelm Jakob who all survived, dragged him across the river to the opposite shore.
