Birth: Aug. 28, 1841
Washington Place
Marion County
Indiana, USA
Death: Oct. 25, 1877
Nemaha County
Nebraska, USA

My 3rd great Uncle Milton served with his brother Wilson and brother-in-law, Henry Pittman, in the Twelfth Regiment Kansas Volunteers - Infantry, Company C, mustered in Osawatomie, KS Aug. 22, 1862; Mustered out with reg. June 30, 1865.

Married Lucinda June Smith, Aug 8, 1872.

"He served in the Civil War from the state of Kansas in 1862 on the Union side. I have a map of the complex that he drew to show his family where he was. Even the 'Out-house' was on the map, but, it wasn't called an 'out-house' - it was much more of a functional name! I also have a copy of his Army discharge papers that were among Lucinda's belongings when she died.

"Milton and Lucinda moved to Nebraska when Nora, their oldest daughter, was 2 years old. This would be 1875. They had my 2nd great Grandmother in 1876 and Lucinda was pregnant when Milton died, October of 1877, in Nemaha County, Nebraska. This was 2 months before Eda Jane, their 3rd child was born. He was only 36 years old." Cheri A. Storlie-Schmidt, 2001

He lived only 36 years, 1 month, 27 days.
