Husband of Sarah Jane/Ann Crull. Children: Sarah, Rebecca Jane, Thomas M., Minnie Alice, Nancy Jane Elizabeth, William J., Bessie C., Anna P., Lillian M.
Info from Dennis Brandt:
He married Sarah Jane Crull January 2, 1859, in Kennedy Valley, Perry County, and fathered Rebecca Jane (b. 02/13/60 - married Joseph Alexander Warner), Thomas M. (b. 02/22/62), Minnie Alice (b. 09/08/63 - married Charles Wesley Robert Morrison), Nancy E. (b. 04/25/66), William J. (b. 06/20/69), Bessie Catherine (b. 07/03/72 - married Brady J. Warner), Phoebe Anna (b. 10/07/73), Lillian M. (b. 06/05/76), and Sarah C. "Sadie" (b. 08/10/79).
A Civil War veteran, he was drafted in Perry County, and mustered into federal service August 17, 1863, as a private with Co. I, 149th Pennsylvania Infantry. Oddly, his stated age at conscription is twenty-seven. A shell fragment struck him in the right side at the battle of Laurel Hill May 10, 1864, and he did not advance with the regiment after the injury. He returned to active duty and honorably discharged with his company June 24, 1865, at Elmira, New York. He is on the company register as "Garland."
Acquaintances described him as "a big, lusty man" at enlistment and a "skeleton" just before his death at age 46-7-20. He possibly died from an infection that began in the sole of one of his feet. In 1892, Sarah lost their house and its contents to fire.
