References & notes

Basic service from the Roster,1 which says he died of his Harpers Ferry wound on 18 January 1863 at Vicksburg, MS. His memorial is on Findagrave, with a death date of 16 November 1863, which suggests he died there of a later injury or illness rather than his Harpers Ferry wound. This seems the more likely possibility.
