(If there are state digraphs above, this soldier spent some time in a state or national soldiers' home in that state after the war)

Remarks: Listed as pow/mia at muster out of regiment, but a War Department review confirms his death as 12/15/1864 in Andersonville, not 12/24 as listed on probable cenotaph in Rhode Island Cemetery. (Compiled Service Record)

Webmaster's Note: If this soldier enlisted before 9/1/62, and was with the regiment on 9/13/62, he would have briefly been taken prisoner along with the entire regiment at Harper's Ferry. Read the unit's Organization and Service for details.
