Blacksmith, Assigned to Company L, 7th US Cavalry. Killed in action during the Battle of the Little Big Horn, Montana.

Born in Copenhagen, Denmark, he enlisted on 19 July 1872, in Yorkville, South Carolina. He had gray eyes, brown hair, a dark complexion, and was 5 feet, 7 ½ inches tall. There are many variations of spelling of his last name in official records. He was killed on Last Stand Hill, along with all of the soldiers of Custer's Column, and was initially buried where he fell. In 1878, the bodies of the soldiers were removed from their field burials and reinterred in a mass grave at the top of Last Stand Hill, where his body remains today. He was not married.
