On October 12, 1905 he was admitted to the US National Home for Disabled Soldiers in Los Angeles, Ca (Sawtelle Pacific Branch) with partial paralysis of his left side. He died August 14, 1907 of paralysis and is buried at Western Branch.
I don't know how he fits into my family. Perhaps at some time or another he was a neighbor. Maybe in Missouri. I just don't know. It was fun though learning about him. Here is what I learned about his military unit.
6th Infantry Regiment, Company H, 1864-1865 (Military Unit Designation)
Date of Organization:
March 4, 1864
Date of Disbanding:
October 25, 1865
I will research him more. I wonder if 100 years after I am gone, someone will try to know me. :-)
