In 1900 and 1910 he was living in the National Home for disabled Soldiers in Milwaukee, WI. It's listing his mother and father's birthplace as NY.
not sure about this, see picture of headstone, note says: I do believe there is a mixup with the military records and the spelling of the surname.
Grave marker next to him states Ellen S Tatu, wife of Peter J Tatu, which I believe is Justin Peter Tatu.
