Text

"When claimant found he had to go into the service in 1863 he volunteered in a horse Company so as to keep out of the Infantry and continued with Rebel Service over a year.

This service was inconsistent with loyal adherence to the cause of Union and the government of the United States and we therefore reject the claim."
