In 1860, he was living in the 14th ward, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (4). He was living with Charles and Elizabeth Gebler (presumably his parents), and with Charles Gebler (presumably his brother) and Mary Smith (4). He was a bricklayer (4).

When he enlisted, he was 6 feet tall, and had a dark complexion, dark eyes, and black hair (3).

He enlisted and was mustered into service on 8 October 1861 (1, 3). He was enlisted for three years, at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, by Colonel Zinn (3). He was mustered in as a private in company H (1, 7).

He deserted in 1861 at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (1, 2, 3). The company H descriptive roll refers to his being arrested (3). Unfortunately, I can't determine what happened to him, because the rest of the line is illegibly light in my microfilm copy (3). He was a private in company H (7).
