Birth: Nov. 8, 1838
Death: Aug. 4, 1923


At a meeting of the members of Company H, 88th Reg't. P.V. held at Camp on the battlefield of Antietam, Md., October 11th, 1862, the following resolutions were adopted and ordered to be published in the Reading Times, Journal, Gazette and Adler.

Whereas, Marks Ringler, Frederick Ferner, James Hinnershitz and John H. Britton, of this Company were killed in the late Battles of Bull Run and Antietam, while fighting for the perpetuation of our glorious Union and in defence of its glorious flag. Therefore it is

Resolved, That we have lost in the above stated men, true brave and honest comrades, endeared to us by those ties only one soldier can feel for another, friends in need and deed.

Resolved, That while we bow in submission to the will of God, in removing from among us the men we loved, we cannot help but feel that our loss is great; but His will, not ours, be done.

Resolved, That we sincerely sympathize with the friends of the dead, and hope God will be with them in their affliction, and especially do we sympathize with the widows and orphans who have been bereft of their protectors and supporters.

Resolved, That we who are left will try to emulate the example the dead have set us in the steady, un--- performance of every duty and by the endurance of every privation, so that should we have to lay down our lives on the altar of our country, our friends may say, "he has done his duty," the proudest boast a soldier has.
