Civil War Service
Isaac PARKS served in the Civil War. There is a Pension record for him. The 1890 Veteran's census enumerates two Isaac PARKS' in Todd County, MN (Birchdale and Kandota Twps) (one spelled Isaak). Isaak PARKS shows service in the Cavalry (1861-1862). The other is in Company E of the 6th Minnesota Infantry. (no dates of service). There is a small notation on the edge which appears to connect the two but the spelling cannot be made out.
His Service record taken from the Internet- Minnesota Civil War Soldiers show Isaac Parks who served in the 1st Minnesota Calvary (Mounted Rangers) resided in Stearns County. Service from 16 Oct 1862 to 4 Nov 1863. Most likely this Isaac PARKS.
The "other" Isaac PARKS does not have service dates but is enumerated in the same Census. . Minnesota Civil War soldiers shows a Isaac Parks - Service in the 8th Minnesota Infantry Regiment. Company E is the same.
It is possible Isaac Parks enlisted and served in two regiments - One Calvary and the other Infantry
Margaret PARKS Pension Record shows Issac Parks serving in Company E of the 8th Minn Infantry. Crossed out in the Index card is service in Company D of 1st Minn Calvary.
This is further proof that Isaac PARKS may have served in both the Calvary and the Infantry.
Best guess he was in the Calvary and in Co E of the 8th MN Infantry.
