cemetery records: Ed. J. Garlick Sr.
7th Cav G Co
By trade he was a laborer.
He enlisted in the 7th U.S. Cavalry on 14 April 1876. He was placed in Company G under Donald McIntosh. Company G was one of the companies that was under Marcus Reno at the Battle of the Little Big Horn in June 1876.
However, Garlick who was a 1st Sgt. in Company G was on a furlough at the time, and possibly that saved his life.
