He was born in Delaware County, Pennsylvania (4). He was born in 1840/41 (4 (23 in 1864)).

Description

When he enlisted, he was 5 feet 7 inches tall, and had a light complexion, grey eyes, and dark hair (4).

During the war

According to Bates, he reenlisted as a veteran volunteer (1). However, the information in the company I descriptive roll (4) suggests that this is a mistake.

He enlisted and was mustered into service on 27 January 1864 (1, 4). He was enlisted for three years, at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, by Lieutenant Brooke (4). He was a private, in company I (1, 5).

He was promoted to corporal, perhaps on 1 March 1865 (1). But on 27 April 1865, he was promoted to corporal, effective 1 April 1865 (2, 4).

On 13 June 1865, he began a furlough, which expired on 28 June 1865 (3). He returned on 24 June 1865 (3).

He mustered out on 10 July 1865 with his company (1, 4). He was a corporal, in company I (1, 5 (pvt)).
