August Schill b. 1842 Germany
My gggrandfather August Schill (Shill) was born in Baden Baden Germany in 1842.His mother sent him to America in 1853 to keep him from the Kaiser's army.He fought in the Civil War with the TN Cavalry and lost a leg from an injury he received.He married Mary Davis and had children Peter Schill and Hattie Caroline Schill (my ggrandmother). He was a naturalized citizen but I have no further information.Any leads?
Thanks, Jeannette Goeke
