    Notes 
    • He was a carpenter by trade and in 1861, enlisted in Company E of the Twenty-Seventh Iowa Infantry. He was in some of the early campaigns of the Mississippi Valley and finally at the siege of Vicksburg. He fell a victim not to an enemy's bullet but to the disease which ravaged the northern armies in the swamps and bayous of the Mississippi and died at Vicksburg in 1863, soon after that Confederate stronghold fell. He was a Whig in politics and a consistent member of the Methodist Episcopal Church. (A Standard History of Kansas and Kansans, written and compiled by William E. Connelley, Secretary of the Kansas State Historical Society, Topeka.)
