References & notes
Thanks to Barry Truluck for details above from his research in the US Census (1850, 1860), his Compiled Service Records (CSRs, via Fold3), and the Roll1 for Company A. Both the CRSs and Roll show him wounded and dying at Sharpsburg, but the CSR has his death on 15 September; if that's correct, it's more likely he was wounded and died on South Mountain. His gravesite is on Findagrave.
