Notes

It appears he was in action in May 1864 where he fought as part of Burham’s Brigade and was wounded in the arm per an article in the Plattsburg Republican which cited a report dated May 17, 1864, from Chaplain C.L. Hagar. U.S. Civil War Soldier Records and Profiles, 1861-1865 include the following two entries:

Age, 32 years. Enlisted at Plattsburgh, to serve one year, and mustered in as private, Co. H, March 2, 1865; transferred to Ninety-sixth Infantry, June 13, 1865.

Enlisted in as Private, Mustered out on 12 Jun 1865. Transferred to Company D, New York 96th Infantry Regiment on 12 Jun 1865. Mustered out on 06 Feb 1866 at Richmond, VA.

He later moved to Vermont sometime before 1900 to live with his son George Neddo in Barre where he died in 1901. As Vermont residents, his widow Victoria applied to continue the war pension he originally applied for in 1884.
