Discharged for general disability on 16 Apr 1862 at Goldboro, at which time he was stated to have been "unfit for duty the last two months". He was described as 5' 10 1/2" tall with a dark complexion and blue eyes and black hair. Occupation was listed as farmer. He was specifically listed as having rheumatism. [1]
