Death: Jul. 2, 1876
Montana, USA

Corporal, Company A, 7th US Cavalry Regiment.

He enlisted into the 7th Cavalry in October 1872, and reenlisted on October 2, 1875, in Pittsburgh. He had hazel eyes, brown hair, a fair complexion, and was 5 feet, 10 1/2 inches tall. He was appointed Corporal on June 1, 1876. During the Battle of the Little Bighorn, on 25-27 June 1876, his company was assigned to Reno's Column, and made the attack into the river valley. Stopped by overwhelming Indian numbers, Reno's column of three companies retreated back over the river and up to a steep bluff, now called Reno's Hill, where they made their stand. King was wounded that evening, in the left shoulder. After the battle, he was evacuated to the steamer "Far West", to be returned to Fort Abraham Lincoln, ND, when he died at Pease Bottom, Montana Territory. He was buried on Pease Bottom, Montana, next to the Yellowstone River, and in 1917, his remains were dug up and reburied in the Custer National Cemetery.
