Remarks: Pension and 1890 Census confirm both units, as does CMSR. Desertion charge in 3rd VT INF vacated and record amended to show date of discharge as 9/14/62, War Department Records and Pension Officer, 2/12/1901

Webmaster's Note: If this soldier enlisted before 9/1/62, and was with the regiment on 9/13/62, he would have briefly been taken prisoner along with the entire regiment at Harper's Ferry. Read the blue section of the unit's Organization and Service for details.
