He was born in December 1843 [?] (26; 14 (18 in 1862), 24 (25 in 1870), 25 (35 in 1880), 26 (56 in 1900), 28 (59 at death in 1902)). He was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (14, 24, 25, 26, 28).
When he enlisted, he was a laborer (14).
When he enlisted, he was 5 feet 6 inches tall, and had a dark complexion, dark eyes, and dark hair (14).
He enlisted and was mustered into service on 26 September 1862 (1, 13 [2 September 1861], 14, 16). He was enlisted for three years, at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, by Lieutenant Gregory (14). He was a private in company D (1, 30).
On 26 September 1863, he was reported returned from hospital for duty (9).

He was living with his wife Sarah Elizabeth, children Henry and Sarah, two boarders, and a niece (25).
