Civil War Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient. He served in the Union Vay as a Landsman on board the "USS Magnolia". He was awarded the CMOH for his bravery during the attack on St. Marks, Florida on March 5 and 6, 1862. His citation reads in part "He served with the Army in charge of Navy howitzers. Throughout this fierce engagement he made remarkable efforts in assisting the transport of the gun. His determination in standing by his gun while under enemy fire, was a credit to the service to which he belonged". His Medal was awarded to him on June 22, 1865.  (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
