Civil War Veteran, G.A.R., Company K, 5th Kentucky Infantry
His Civil War records found on Footnote.com contained the following information:
** Enrolled at the age of 18 on 24 September 1861 at Camp Muldrow TN; was mustered in at Camp Nevin TN on 31 October 1861.
** He was absent from his unit May through September 1862, first a patient at the hospital in Corinth, Mississippi and then moved to a hospital in Nashville, Tennessee.
** On 01 November 1862 he was mistakenly declared a deserter by the hospital's administrators.
** But added to his record by the A.G.'s office of the War Department was the following notation dated 12 June 1886: "The charge of desertion of November 1, 1862 is removed. He was admitted to No. 1 General Hospital, Louisville, Ky., June 17, 1862 with hypertrophy of the heart and discharged the service August 12, 1863 for disability. The record of discharge of August 12, 1862 is cancelled. He was absent on discharge furlough from August 11, 1862 to November 18, 1863, when he was discharged on surgeon's certificate of disability by the Commanding Officer, Louisville, Ky."
** There is also a copy of his disability discharge papers which state he was released from duty due to cardiac disease - there being hypertrophy of the right ventrical. There is also a copy of the 18 Nov 1863 discharge papers verifying he did not desert.
