I am not confident what his name is, because I often find distinguishing an 'l' from a 't' hard.
He was born in Germany (5, 6), in Prussia (12, 13). He was born on 4 March 1835 (11; 5 (28 in 1863), 6 (28 in 1863), 12 (35 in 1870), 13 (45 in 1880)).
He may be the Frederick Stolta who filed a declaration of intent on 22 February 1858, and was naturalized on 3 October 1860, in the district courts of Allegheny County, Pennsylvania (10).
When he enlisted, he was a laborer (5, 6).

On 22 July 1864, they were transferred to company K, following brigade orders to assign them to the smallest company (3). He was then present, as a private (3). He was a private in company K (1, 3, 15, 16-17).
He was absent, on furlough, when the regiment mustered out (1). He was a private, in company K (16-17).
In 1870, he was living in East Birmingham, Allegheny County, Pennsylvania (12). He was living with his wife Caroline, children August, Mina, and Frederick, and a domestic (12). He kept a tavern, and owned $5,000 in real estate and $1,500 [?] in personal property (12).
In 1880, he was living at 31 Grant Street, Pittsburgh, Allegheny County, Pennsylvania (13). He was living with his wife Carolin, and children Gusta, Minnie, Fredrick, Emma, and Ada (13). He kept a saloon (13).

There is another Frederick (Fred, Friedrich) Stolte married to Caroline in the US--in the 1880 census, they are at microfilm series T9, film 328, page 318C--he was born in Germany (ca 1838), living in Maxfield, Bremer County, Iowa, and living with Carolina, and his children Mina, Sophia, Mary, John, Lena, and Fred. The fact that the children don't match indicates that these are two different Frederick Stolte's; also Find a Grave has him dying on 14 May 1892 (and Caroline on 5 October 1918), and buried in the Saint Matthew's Cemetery, Readlyn, Bremer County, Iowa.
