Steve also notes: Database of Illinois Veterans list his birthplace as Harvard, McHenry Co, IL, the same place as his residence when he enlisted 4/13/1862. Must in 4/26/62; Must out 4/25/1865. Find a Grave listing (see above) used the same birthplace from the same database. All census records (in Wisconsin, Iowa, and Colorado) show birthplace as Vermont.
