Thank you

Hello Doug,

We can put a face on this man! He was a graduate of the U. S. Military Academy at West Point, Class of 1850. A career biography of him is given in entry #1484 in Cullum's Biographical Register of the Graduates of the Military Academy; it is online at

Kind regards,
Bill Thayer
