He was born in 1841/42 (2 (19 in 1861), (45 in 1880), 4, 5, 6 (38 in 1870)). He was born in Pennsylvania (2, 6).
When he enlisted, he was a laborer (5).
When he enlisted, he was 5 foot 2-1/4" tall, and had a light complexion, gray eyes, and light hair (5).
He enlisted and was mustered into service as a private on 30 September 1861 at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (1, 4, 5). He was enlisted for three years, at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, by Captain Dye (4). He was a private in company A (1, 7-8).
On 4 October 1861, he was transferred to the 108th Pennsylvania Volunteers, also known as the Eleventh Pennsylvania Cavalry (1, 3, 4, 5, 7). When transferred, he was a private, in company A (7-8). (The Eleventh Pennsylvania Cavalry was also known as Harlan's Iowa Cavalry, according to the Official Army Register.) This was on the order of Major Samuel Wetherill, because he had "deserted from the cavalry" (3, 4). (Major Samuel Wetherell, of the 11th Pennsylvania Cavalry, mustered out when his term expired on 30 September 1864, according to the Official Army Register.) Perhaps he was the Adol[ph?] Muckenfuss who enlisted in the 108th Pennsylvania on 19 September 1861, and deserted on 29 September 1861.
