He was born in 1832/33 (4 (22 in 1865)). He was born in Cardiff, Wales (4).

When he enlisted, he was a tailor, and was living in Bucks County, Pennsylvania (4).

Description

When he enlisted, he was 5 feet 4-7/8 inches tall, and had a light complexion, grey eyes, and brown hair (4).

During the war

He enlisted and was mustered into service on 1 March 1865 (1, 4) or (I suspect) 1 March 1864. He enlisted at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (4). He was mustered in, at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, as a private in company I (1, 4, 5).

He deserted on 9 March 1864 or 1865, from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (1 [1865], 3 [1864], 4 [1865]). He was a private, in company I (5).

He may be the Dempsey whom Sinex asked on 27 April 1864 be sent to the regiment (2).
