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 ?
