Civil War veteran; he enlisted for the Union as a Private in Company F, 19th Indiana Infantry, on July 29, 1861. This regiment was part of the Iron Brigade of the West, or "Black Hats Brigade," which fought in many of the major battles in the eastern theater with the Army of the Potomac. At the time he enlisted, he was a native of Marion County, Indiana. On October 18, 1864, he transferred out of Company F and into the 20th Indiana Infantry regiment at Petersburg, Virginia. After the war, he married Anna Grose and apparently settled at Florence, Kansas, where his son Grant was born on September 9, 1870.
