Death: Jun. 25, 1876
Little Big Horn Battle Site
Big Horn County
Montana, USA

Pvt Stuart-Forbes, Company E, 7th US Cavalry, was killed at the Battle of the Little Bighorn. Stuart-Forbes was reportedly born a "noble," in Rugby England. Because of unknown issues, he allegedly had to flee Enland for the United States. On January 20, 1872 he enlisted into the US Army in New York NY under the alias of John Hiley. His listed civilian occupation was clerk. Stuart-Forbes was described as 6'0", hazel eyes, brown hair with a fair compplexion. Just before Stuart-Forbes departed on the campaign that would lead to his death at the Little Bighorn, he recieved a letter from his mother. The letter informed him that his reason for fleeing England would soon be resolved. Therefore, he would be able to return home after his enlistment expired in January of 1877. Soldiers killed at the battle were first buried where they had died. In 1881 remains of these soldiers were re-buried in a mass grave on top of Last Stand Hill.
