Birth: Mar. 11, 1838

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

Montana, USA

Private, Company C, 7th US Cavalry. Killed in action during the Battle of the Little Big Horn, along with General George A. Custer and most of the 7th Cavalry.

During the Civil War, he served in the US Navy, with the rank of Master's Mate. At age 35 (his Army records list his birth year as 1840), he enlisted into the US Army on 22 August 1873, in Boston, listing his previous occupation as a machinist. He was 5 feet, 6 1/2 inches tall, with brown eyes, dark brown hair, and a dark complexion. He was unmarried. During the Battle, his unit was with Captain Thomas Custer, near Last Stand Hill, and was wiped out by the Indians. His mother, Jane Wyman, received a pension of $8 following his death. Originally buried where they fell, in 1877 the bodies of the soldiers were reinterred in a mass grave on Last Stand Hill, now marked with the Battlefield Monument.
