William F. Paulisch was born in Germany and was a musician conducting orchestra in Hartford (See Obituary on profile). He was a Civil War Veteran. He died November 30, 1900 in Wethersfield, Connecticut. 

Need help with his civil war sources (enlistment date and muster out dates) adding to his profile and his family lineage. 

Any help is appreciated. 

Thank you wikitree family

I took photos of his gravestone as you can see stone needs cleaning but somewhat legible.
