Well, I know he lived in WIsconsin, or most likely did, just beofre the CIvil War, because he joined the Wisconsin volunteer infrantry. I don't exactly when he went to Minnesota, but I know he ended up in the Soldiers Home. I also found a death reference in his pension file - Apr 13, 1910 death. He also has statement in his file about his birth and he says he was born in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. It does not say the town, but it does have his birthdate.
There was no record in the MN Death site. I am pretty sure he died at the Soldiers Home. Thanks for the links. I will check them out. Jerry
