Birth: 1832
Cortland County
New York, USA
Death: Oct. 6, 1864
Winchester City

Civil War Union Brevet Brigadier General. Served in the Civil War first as a 1st Lieutenant in the 3rd New York Volunteer Infantry. Promoted to Captain, he was initially assigned to the 64th New York Volunteer Infantry, but was never mustered in at that rank. However, he eventually became the Lieutenant Colonel of the 75th New York Volunteer Infantry after spending some time as the Acting Assistant Inspector General for the Department of the Gulf's Cavalry Division. He was mortally wounded at the 3rd Battle of Winchester, Virginia on September 19, 1864. He lingered until October 6, when he died. He was posthumously brevetted Brigadier General, US Volunteers (backdated to September 19, the date of his wounding) for "conspicuous gallantry at Winchester, Va.". (bio by: Russ Dodge)
