Fred Fetterly, Military musician, Idaho late 1800s
I think this book likely talks of Idaho TERRITORY before it became Idaho STATE in 1890.
Taken from "History of Idaho, The Gem of the Mountains," James H. Hawley, Editor; Volume I; Illustrated; Chicago, The S. J. Clarke Publishing Company; 1920; Pages 566-574: COMPANY "F"(1870-1890 period ?) This company came from Shoshone County and was mustered in with the following officers and enlisted men: Max J. Linck, captain; William J. Kipp, first lieutenant; Isaac M. Busby, second lieutenant; Alfred J. Dunn, first sergeant; William D. Gillespie, quartermaster sergeant; Peter R. Nelson, Louis H. Pohle, Abel R. Knight and Thomas Proctor, sergeants; Alexander H. Rambo, Arthur Brown, Felix Keenan, William Caffe, David McEwen, John H. Reed, William Smith, Fred C. Skinner, Marcus White, Louis B. Beach and Charles Gabriel, corporals; Fred L. Fetterly, musician; William G. Kuch, artificer; Gus Becker, wagoner. _________________________________________________________ Who was the musician Fred Fetterly in Idaho in the last quarter of the 19th century ? And what instrument did he play (I am guessing the bugle) ? Is he related to anyone posting here - maybe a "missing sibling" in the jigsaw puzzle ?
