In 1860 he enlisted in the army and served his country faithfully during the four years' struggle. He was one of the soldiers martyred by imprisonment in the Andersonville prison. After the war he settled in Illinois, removing from there to Sioux County, Iowa, where he married Mrs. Elma Howard, who survives him. He afterward removed to Sheldon, O'Brien county, Iowa, where he successfully conducted a wagon shop and a furniture and undertaking business.
