Captain Samuel Parker was wounded in action at the “Battle of Fishers Hill” September 22, 1864 and died of his wounds October 1, 1864. He is a veteran who died gallantly in battle of the glorious 106th New York Regiment Company C. The obituary has a word I can’t read legibly “engaged in getting out ???? Doors” I think it says sash? Need help interpreting for clarity. Also any collaboration in the 106th is appreciated all the men of Companies A, B, H have been added. Much work to be done in connecting the 106th N.Y.V.

Thank you

The sash doors makes sense.  In the 1860 U.S. Census, he is listed as a "carpenter." 1860 U.S. Census, Ogdensburg, Saint Lawrence County, New York, pop. sch. 330, dwell. 1346, fam. 1287, and a sash door is one with windows.
