Leavitt B. Austin was born abt. 1829 in Bangor, Franklin County. New York to George Austin and Abigail McWain. He married Sarah Flemming July 4, 1849. Leavitt enlisted at Malone, New York August 11, 1862; was promoted to Seargent and was wounded July 9, 1864 at Monocacy, Maryland. We need help connecting him to the wiki family tree and obtain a muster out date and more info on his civil war service. Is there a NPS record of service? Any obituary? Need help categorizing his civil war service.

Anyone know how many men were in Company H?

See Category: 106th Regiment, New York Infantry, United States Civil War

Thank you

Beautiful! That gives a discharge date of 12 May 1865.
Excellent source!

You guys are amazing !

I see he was a Tin Smith and now we have a muster out date. It even gives a physical description how cool is that!

This was a tough battle for Company H. My 3rd great was wounded also here
Thanks Andrew.

Edited to remove information you already have

He received an invalid's pension in 1866, and his wife received a widow's pension in 1895, so his pension file at the National Archives is bound to have lots of good information on him (once the National Archives in DC open up again).
