He came with his family to Nebraska City in 1857 and in 1862 enlisted in the Second Nebraska Cavalry. When the members of that regiment were mustered out, he enlisted in the First Nebraska Regiment. Altogether he served five and a half years. He was captured and for a while was confined in Andersonville Prison. He died at the home of his daughter, May 18, 1923, being past 80 years of age.
