By 1870 to at least 1880 he was a carpenter in Shiloh Township, Iredell County, NC, and lived between his father Henry's and his brother Jacob's farms.

His service from his Compiled Service Records,1 via fold3 and the Roster.2 Personal details from family genealogists and the US Census of 1870-1920.

He married Martha Mary "Mattie" Bridges (1843-1922) in October 1865 and they had 8 children.

His son Henry Ernest Lollar (1872-1948) lived in Boone County, Indiana after 1900, which may be why H.L.S. Lollar was buried there.
