  • Notes 
    • He was a farmer and a boatman on the canal. He served in the 174th PVI Co A., in the Civil War. When William joined the regiment he was with Capt. Geisinger's Company B., from Milford, N. J. I don't, as yet know when he transferred to Company A. The 174th never had to fight in a battle, their tour of duty was in Beauford, N.C., Beauford, S.C., St. Helena Island, Moreshead City, Charleston and Hilton Head. This troupe seemed to have had a very good time . William died on January 29, 1904. Sidney Ann died on February 11, 1891 at the age of 70 years and is buried in Milford New Jersey. William married Mercie (surname unknown) about 1897.
