When the Civil War began he was named captain of Co. G of the 4th Tn Infantry and he was killed in battle at Shiloh, Tn on April 6, 1862. his widow remarried after the war to a veteran, Frank M. Sinclair, in 1867. Sinclair killed himself in Lauderdale Co Oct 1879 and the family relocated to California to live with relatives.
