Notes

John (also known as Jacob or Jehue) Wilson served in Company D, 165th Pennsylvania Infantry. Records indicate that he deserted shortly after enlistment. Wilson is listed as white on some records and black on others, so it is possible he had a very light complexion. His death was recorded in the Star and Sentinel on August 15, 1890. On some records, his birthplace is listed as Pennsylvania, but on others (two of his daughters' death certificates), it is Carroll County, Maryland.
