He was described as being 5 feet 7 inches tall with blue eyes and sandy hair. His age was incorrectly listed as 38 (he was 28 at the time).
His enlistment shows he traveled 70 miles to the rendezvous and provided a horse worth $125 and equipment worth $20.

Most of his service was in Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana. He was engaged in several actions during the war including the Battle of Yellow Bayou. His comrades said that he was one of the truest and bravest soldiers in the company.
