Samuel E. Alden was age 26 in 1865. He was born Medina, Ohio.In n 1865 at St. Paul he went into co. F, 1st Reg heavy art. for one year. He had blue eyes, brown hair, Sandy complexion, 5 ft-7. He was mustered in at Fort Snelling. The family story is all four sons went to enlist, the smaller was turned down as too small. (42 inches) I tried to get the pension papers, but they could not find them. Anyone find them? I believe he married, but the census did not tell relationships, so may have been a family member in the household. His Parents moved to MN.
