Death: May 8, 1901
Cook County
Illinois, USA

Albert Banfield Capron enlisted as a corporal in the 33rd Illinois Infantry at the outbreak of the Civil War. He later was transferred as a captain to the 11th Cavalry under his father's command, and was elevated to the rank of colonel. He returned to his adopted hometown of Winnetka and raised three children -- Horace, Albert, and Florence. He died of pneumonia in 1890.

So many Capron family members joined the military that they were collectively known as the "Fighting Caprons".
