find them at:
The search is in the left frame. You can search a bunch of books at once by
using the SEARCH SELECTOR to choose.
You might also want to check books.google.com

In the one surviving letter, he says he's with the Union Blockade Squadron
(Mobile Bay) on board a ship which led me to believe he was in the navy.
However, someone pointed out that he may have been WITH, not necessarily
the navy as troops were transported by ship.
I've spent time looking for rosters, ship logs etc on USS Monongahela -
ship he was on when he wrote the letter (not dated but guessing about
I've written to NARA twice and no luck.
I don't think he survived the war as his family (at time of father's death
in didn't know what had happened to him).
So perhaps the government didn't either.
P.S. he was born about 1830 in England of Irish-born parents.
