[sources: 7, 8 (8 children, 4 alive, in 1900), 9 (6 children, 3 alive, in 1910), 18]

When he enlisted, he was a cordwainer. [source: 3 (cordwainer), 13 (shoemaker)]

When he enlisted, he was 5 feet 5 inches tall, and had a dark complexion, dark eyes, and dark hair. [source: 3 (5 5, dark eyes, dark hair, dark complexion), 13 (5 4-1/2, blue eyes, dark hair, light complexion)]

During the war

He enlisted and was mustered into service on 26 February 1864, at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He was enlisted for three years, by Charles Snyder. His enlistment was credited to the 7th ward, 2nd district, of Philadelphia. W G Keir, Assistant Surgeon of the 91st Pennsylvania, was the examining physician, and J A Gregory was the recruiting officer. W H Chandler (D) witnessed his declaration. He was a private in company A. [sources: 1, 3, 4, 6, 11, 12, 13 (27 Feb 64)]

He is listed on the company muster roll for January-February 1864; whether he was present isn't stated. [source: 13]

He is listed on a muster and descriptive roll of a detachment of US volunteers forwarded for the 91st Pennsylvania, dated Philadelphia, 10 March 1864. [source: 13]

He is also listed on a muster and descriptive roll of a detachment of US volunteers forwarded for the 91st Pennsylvania, dated Philadelphia, 19 March 1864. He had received $60 of the bounty, and an additional $13. [source: 13]

He is listed on the company muster roll for May-June 1864, as present. He was owed $50.00, as the second installment of the bounty for recruits. [source: 13]

He is listed on the company muster roll for July-August 1864, as present. He was owed $160 as the first, second, and third installment of the bounty for recruits. [source: 13]

After the war

In 1870, he was living in ward 3, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He was living with his (presumed) wife Eliza, and their (presumed) children Maggie and Robert. He was a laborer, and owned $100 in personal property. (Since Eliza's name doesn't match the name of his wife in later census records, and since the 1880 census reports a large gap between Robert, born about 1868, and Agnes, born about 1879, I'm tempted to wonder whether John Legg was married twice. But the 1910 census clearly reports his marriage to Margaret as his first marriage, and the 1900 and 1910 censuses have John and Margaret married about 1864.) [source: 15]

In 1880, he was living at 1 Browery Place, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He was living with his wife Margaret and children Mary, Robert, and Agnes. He was a boltmaker. [source: 7]

In 1890, he was living at 744 South 12th Street, Philadelphia Pennsylvania. He was a boltmaker. Also living at that address were Robert Legg (lithographer), Arthur B Melville (clerk), and Clarence Tricker (salesman). [sources: 1, 4, 5 6]

He applied successfully from Pennsylvania for a pension on 7 October 1890, under the Act of 27 June 1890. [sources: 4, 10, 16]

In 1900, he was living at 817 North 15th Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He was living with his wife Margaret, and children Robert, Edith, Mary, and Frank. He was a stationary engineer. He was a naturalized citizen. [source: 8]

He applied again for a pension on 15 February 1907, under the Act of 6 February 1907. He received $12 per month, retroactive to 15 February 1907. The pension certificate was dated 30 April 1907. [sources: 4, 16]

In 1910, he was living at 1623 Parrish Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He was living with his wife Margaret and daughter Edith. He was a boltmaker, in a factory. [source: 9]

Effective 18 May 1911, his pension was increased to $15 per month. The pension certificate was dated 5 June 1911. [source: 16]

Effective 18 May 1912, his pension was increased to $20 per month, under the Act of 11 May 1912. The pension certificate was dated 7 August 1912. [source: 16]

On 30 November 1914, his wife, Margaret M Legg, died, at 1430 Poplar Street, ward 15, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She died of uremia (7 days duration), with chornic interstitial nephritis contributing On 4 December 1914, she was buried, at Mt Moriah Cemetery, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. [source: 18]

He died on 23 April 1918, at 1712 North 16th Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He was widowed. He died of uremia (25 days duration), with myocarditis (6 months duration) contributing. On 26 April 1918, he was * buried, at Mount Moriah Cemetery, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The funeral was held from his late residence 1712 North 16th Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
