Moved from Maryland to Kentucky betwen 1823 and 1830.  Served in Bussey’s Scouts during the Civil War, died during or shortly thereafter.  Hard to find info, as the powers that be destroyed all military records for the Commonwealth in 1874.  The official reason was tht it would make it easier to process Civil War pensions if they didn’t have to go through old records, but in truth, it was in order to protect union soldiers who had used the war as an excuse to cheat, steal and kill.
