|Birth: ||Jul. 15, 1844|
Ira came to Iowa in 1856, and settled in Iowa City in September 1863. He enlisted as a Private in Company "B", 44th Iowa Infantry on 14 May 1864, and mustered out 15 September 1864.
The 44th was a "Hundred-Day" regiment, one of many created in the Spring of 1864. Like other such units, the 44th mostly performed garrison and railroad protection duties. This allowed more seasoned troops to assist with combat operations in the field.
"Admitted to the bar in January, 1869, he has practiced law since, studying under Judge W E Miller, of Iowa City. He left the State University and read law on year under Hon. Rush Clark, and then went into Judge Miller's office. He was married June 8th, 1882, to Miss Julia Buttles, youngest daughter of the Hon. J. B. Buttles of Iowa City. He is a member of the Episcopal Church of Iowa City, and a republican in politics." ("History of Johnson County", p. 777).
