Julius A. Bills was born in 1837 (see Caveat, below). He was 33 years old and resided in the town of Mendon, Monroe County, New York when he enlisted in the 108th Regiment New York Volunteer Infantry at Rochester, Monroe County, New York to serve three years. On July 25, 1862 he mustered in as a Private in Company ‘C'. He was with the regiment when it left Rochester for the seat of war on August 19, 1862. He was a Private when he was discharged for disability February 21, 1863 at Falmouth, Virginia. He died May 4, 1906 and is buried in Section G, Row 24, Site 7 at the Bath National Cemetery in Bath, Steuben County, New York.

Caveat: The website* for the Bath National Cemetery states Julius was born in 1837 and another source** states he was age 33 at his time of enlistment. He could not have been born in 1837 and also be age 33 in 1862 when he enlisted (1837+33=1870). At the time of his enlistment in 1862, he was either age 33 (born in 1829) or he was born in 1837 and was age 25.
