His parents afterwards removed to Paw Paw Grove, Lee Co., Ill. In 1866 the subject of our sketch came to Kossuth county, and located on section 2, township 95, range 28, Irvington township. He has 160 acres of good land, and is one of the substantial farmers of the township.

After being mustered in at Dixon, he went to Chicago, and from there to New York city, where he took a steamer to Morehead City, N. C. Going from there on foot through the swamps to Raleigh, N. C., he went from there to Richmond, Va., and then to Washington City, where he witnessed the grand review.
