Birth date calculated from the date of death on his headstone. (Cemetery note: John's birth date is different on every single document we have for him but we do know he was born in Maryland.)

26th Regiment United States Colored Troops. (Company C on his headstone, Company B on his muster roll abstract)

Unsure if he is brother/friend to Samuel Smith (#215948771) in this cemetery, also from Maryland, and served in the 26th Regiment as well. Later in life, Samuel Smith's wife was associated with John through the Lincoln League in Newburgh.

NOTE: NYS Death Index has John dying on the 5th but the headstone says the 6th.
