  • Notes 
    • Went in the service in 1 Jan 1863 with the Co. 4-32nd REG. INF with the Home Guards. He was stationed at Camp Burnside, KY as a PVT. He enlisted as a Volunteer. He served until July 1863. They released the home Guards and he never went back to get his discharge papers. Therefore he was termed a "deserter" and Celia (his wife / widow) could never draw a pension for him. [1, 2]
