From Find-a-Grave contributor Dennis Brandt:
"In 1860, he was a brick layer living in Marion County, Indiana, and stood 6' 0" tall with light brown hair and light brown eyes.
A Civil War veteran, he enlisted and mustered in Indianapolis, Indiana, April 22, 1861, as a private with the three-month organization of Co. A, 11th Indiana Infantry. He re-enlisted with the three-year unit and mustered at the rank of 2nd lieutenant, assuming command of the company March 10, 1862. Promoted to 1st lieutenant April 1, 1862, he assumed command of the division supply train May 17, 1862, and returned to the regiment August 26, 1862. He resigned at Helena, Arkansas, by reason of failing eyesight. His individual pension index claims he served with the 11th Iowa Infantry, but the organizational pension index correctly claims the 11th Indiana Infantry.
His wife's name was Margaret."
