Pvt.B Co. 32nd NY Infantry.

Descendant of the Fuchs-Fox family of Montgomery County, New York.
Son of Jacob C. Fox (born 1794 in Montgomery County NY; no known memorial) and his wife Nancy Wells Fox (born 1804 in Montgomery County NY; no known memorial)

Aaron is a laborer living in Palatine NY when he enlists as a private in the Union Army on 25 Apr 1861 in the town of Albany NY. He is 27 years old and single.

There is a discrepancy as to the date Aaron passes away. Aaron most likely dies Nov 24 (two sources) or Nov 25 (several sources, mostly in conjunction with his re-interment from Hagerstown ND to Antietam National Cemetery in Sharpsburg MD), 1862 based on multiple sources whereas there is only one source for 25 Sep 1862.
1) 25 Nov 1862 is the most likely death date as it is cited on multiple sources.
2) 24 Nov 1862 in Maryland per New York, U.S., Registers of Officers and Enlisted Men Mustered into Federal Service, 1861-1865 for Aaron Fox, Vol 6: Volunteers Who Have Died While In Service, when Aaron Fox of Palatine NY dies, he is 28, single, who had enlisted as a volunteer in May 1861 in 32nd NY as a private, also dies while serving in the 32nd NY as a private and dies of sickness acquired while in the service at Seminary Hospital in Hagers. The column called parents dependent has an "F" in it (I do not know what this signifies). He left no children.
2) 25 Sep 1862 in Hagers Town, Maryland per New York, Town Clerks' Registers of Men Who Served in the Civil War, ca 1861-1865 - Aaron Fox lived in Palatine NY when he enlists as a private in the 32nd NY on 25 Apr 1861 in Albany NY for 3 years. A town (Palatine? Albany?) paid a bounty of $50. He is single and the son of Jacob and Nancy Wells Fox. He died in the hospital at Hagers Town, Maryland.

Aaron was originally buried in Hagerstown MD but was re-interred in 1867 at Antietam National Cemetery, Grave Site: 562-E-25.
