Birth: Aug. 29, 1861
Blair County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: May 11, 1887
La Crosse
La Crosse County
Wisconsin, USA

Professional baseball player in 1884. Played for the Baltimore Orioles.

Note: According to the June 11, 1887 issue of the "Herald-Despatch" of Decatur, Illinois: On June 4, 1887, fisherman discovered his body when their hooks snagged onto his clothes. Due to the condition of his remains, it was reported that he was immediately buried.

So he may be buried in an unmarked grave in or near La Crosse, though his mother wished he was moved to Altoona.
