This was an old posting of Jaimie, I hope you are still on line.
I have info on your Alfred, I believe. My Alfred enlisted in the Civil war in May of 1861.He served as 1st Lt. in the 60th NY Co. E, was with 1st VT Inf. from May-Aug 1861. Was discharged, re-enlisted in the 60th NY and was wounded on picket duty by his own gun (shot off third finger of left hand).Promoted to 1st Lt; discharged 17 Jul 1865. PO address Bloomingdale, D. 1910, and is buried at Vermontville NY.Appears on the 1865 list for Brighton NY.
His wife was Mary E. Pay.
Is this your Alfred?If so, I have a photo of him and would be willing to share it.
I have as Alfred's father David and Hannah.Not sure if this is accurate or not.
