religion - Quakers didn't believe in war
disability - physical or mental
wealth - the family may have been wealthy enough to get their son into a non-fighting position
ideology or fear - they may not have believed in the war for one reason or another, or were scared of killing or being killed

I'm sure there are other reasons too.
