Birth: Aug. 24, 1846
Armstrong County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: 1870
Armstrong County
Pennsylvania, USA

His boyhood was spent on his father's farm until his fourteenth year, when he slipped to the recruting station in Kittanning and offered himself to his country. His widowed mother broought him home. That night the embryonic soldier crept out of the window and started for Kittanning. After following the company to the south he was accepted as a real soldier and enfolled with Company D 103rd Regiment, Pennsylvania Volunteer to serve three years as a musician. He was discharged June 2, 1865 at Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. In subsequent years he has an aversion to talk "war," but one experience he has dared to tell--that when he was captured and sent to Andersonville Prison he weightd 180, and weighed 80 when he got out and was two years in the invalid corps as a consequence.
