The son of William Henry & Susan (Silks) Liddick, his reported birth years range from 1839 through 1842, and his stated ages at enlistment don't shed any light on that subject (see below). In 1860, he was a farm laborer living with his parents and siblings in Buffalo Township, Perry County, Pennsylvania, and are on the census as "Lidich." He stood 5' 10" tall and had light hair and blue eyes.
A Civil War veteran, he was drafted in Perry County October 21, 1862, at the stated age of twenty-eight, which appears to have been a clerical error. He mustered into federal service at Harrisburg November 2 as a private with Co. E, 173rd Pennsylvania Infantry (aka "Drafted Militia"), and honorably discharged with his company August 17, 1863. He is in the company register as "Lydick." He also enlisted in Perry County August 31, 1864, at the stated age of twenty-three, mustered into federal service at Harrisburg September 3 as a private with Co. I, 208th Pennsylvania Infantry, and honorably discharged with his company June 1, 1865.
He married thirteen-year-old Sarah A. E. Miller July 2, 1865, in Watts Township, Perry County, and fathered Sophia Catherine (b. 12/26/66 - married John Sherman Branyan), Charles E. (b. @1867), Frances A. "Fannie" (b. 03/10/68), Harvey (b. 01/04/73), Wister T. (b. 05/21/76), and [SURPRISE!] Hilda (b. 08/??/92). Several Maxwell children are listed in the 1880 census as living with them.
