Birth: Nov. 27, 1830
Death: Mar. 11, 1931

During the Civil War, Frederick enlisted in the Union Army on February 16, 1865, serving as a private in Company C 185th Regiment, Ohio Volunteer Infantry, through his discharge on September 26, 1865.

"Less than 24 hours, after he reached the front at Cumberland Gap, F. N. Wilcox, (age) 97, 338 Nineteenth Avenue, was given a horse, a gun and a bag of dispatches and ordered to make his way to Louisville, 120 miles away. He got through all the dangers that beset his way and safely passed through country occupied by the rebels. During the next few weeks he repeated this journey nine times.

Born in Massachusetts in 1830, Mr. Wilcox enlisted in Company C 185th Ohio Volunteer Infantry, toward the close of the war and served until peace was declared."
