LTC Walter Farnandis Biscoe
Birth: May 14, 1816
Baltimore County
Maryland, USA
Death: Sep. 2, 1863
Sacramento County
California, USA

From the Sacramento Daily Union, Saturday, September 5, 1863

The funeral of Walter F. Biscoe took place yesterday, and was numerously attended. In the earlier days of Sacramento, the deceased was a well-known member of the firm of Watson & Bein, hardware merchants. In 1855 he was the Democratic candidate for sheriff against W.F. White, who ran on the Native American ticket. At the time and until his death, the deceased lived in the county, some twelve or fifteen miles from the city. At the commencement of the war with Mexico, he enlisted as a private among General Games' three-month men, at New Orleans. On the expiration of the term of service, he returned to New Orleans and raised a company for the war, which connected with the First Louisiana Regiment. During the campaign he was promoted to the position of Lieutenant Colonel, and returned at the close of the war to New Orleans with the remnant of his regiment.
