Born & died in New Castle, New Hampshire [death date from s64: NC Records, Vol. 13, pg. 9. Father's name found same, Vol.3, pg. 221 & Vol. 11, pg. 58]
NOTE: Birth was 21 March 1808 - changed because of his marker
Served at Fort Constitution in Capt. Jos. G. Hadley's Company, 25 February 1861 - 09 May 1861.
Married on 23 July 1849 in New Castle, New Hampshire [S42, 64 & 36 NC RECORDS]. Wife was born in March 1830 in Portsmouth, daughter of William & Fannie (HARVEY); She died on 20 July 1889, aged 59.
Both were buried at the New Castle Cemetery - he was 54 [marker]
Was a butcher & baker [Source 66]. He's listed as a Shoemaker in the 1850 New Castle Census.
NOTE One source has his death at age 56; another says he was 58. Simple math using the dates above comes up with 54. Also, New Castle Records & others list him as the son of Abe (#296). I think this was based mainly on 'the name game'.
