Birth: 1829
Death: Mar. 19, 1882

From Astoria, Queens, enlisted as a private in the 67th New York Infantry, Company F. He was steadily promoted: to corporal, sergeant, sergeant major, then re-enlisted, was promoted to second lieutenant, and then transferred into the 65th New York in 1864.

Obituary that appeared in the Brooklyn Daily Eagle on March 20, 1882.

He passed through the entire period of the war until March 25, 1865, without injury, when after the capture of Fort Steadman, in an attempt to advance the picket line, he received a gunshot wound in the left temple, which penetrated the brain. After several weeks he succeeded in obtaining a furlough, reached home in safety and placed himself under the charge of Dr. Johnson, of Henry Street, who, after considerable difficulty, succeeded on the 8th of May in removing the ball, which weighed one and a quarter ounces, from his head, it having been in his brain for six weeks and two days.
