Where are you getting the "23rd Infantry" information from?
History of that unit aqs I find it on web.
"The 23rd Infantry Regiment was brought to life on September 21, 1866 after the 2nd of the 14th Infantry was reflagged as the 23rd Infantry Regiment. Following the Civil War the regiment was stationed in several western states. Among these were Idaho, Oregon, Washington, Arizona, Wyoming, Nebraska, Montana, Kansas, and Texas. While assigned in these areas, the regiment won the following campaign credits during the Indian Wars: Arizona 1866, Idaho 1868 and the Little Big Horn 1876.
On 3 July 1869, Company E, 23d Infantry became a part of the Military Department of Alaska, making it one of the first United States Army units to serve in the area. The company served a two year tour and returned to regimental control in June 1871.
With the advent of the Spanish American War, the 23d Infantry, still located in the western United States, was called upon to participate in Admiral Dewey's attack on Manila.
The Spanish defeat and the approaching cession of the Philippine Islands to the United States caused a rapid deterioration of Philippine American relations. During the ensuing native revolt experience gained by the regiment in the Indian Wars proved invaluable in suppressing the insurrection of the Philippine guerillas. Campaign credits awarded to the regiment during the Philippine insurrection were Manila, Malolos, Mindanao , Jolo, and Jolo 1903.
The regiment returned home after the Philippines Campaign via the Suez Canal and the straits of Gibraltar, becoming the first United States Army regiment to circumnavigate the globe."
Maybe he is credited with the "Philippine Resurrection War" for servoce records. Have you tried the OH National Guard Archives?
