Born about 1827; died after 1885

During the Civil War, Frederick served with Company A, 3rd Regiment, Vermont Infantry. He was commissioned as 1st Lieutenant on May 21, 1861, then promoted to Quartermaster. He mustered out February 2 1866.

Some sources suggest he was promoted to Captain, and in March 1865 was promoted to Brevet Major, "for faithful and meritorious service". However, he is listed in the "Proceedings of the Reunion Society of Vermont Officers" 1885 as Assistant Quartermaster. The Vermont Historical Society also lists him as Quartermaster.

In "History of the Town of Springfield, Vermont", G.H. Walker & Company, 1895, authors Charles Horace Hubbard and Justus Dartt state Frederick died November 6, 1871. (t has been suggested that Frederick died after 1888; the 1885 Proceedings of the GAR indicate Frederick had passed away by that meeting.
