Hubert A. O'Bladen, Company L and K, 1st Iowa Cavalry (listed in the Iowa Rosters as
Hubert A. O. Bladen). Looking for any information about my ancestor before he served in
the Civil War, during, and especially after he was mustered out on 9 Sep 1864 at
Davenport, Iowa. At age 28, as a resident of Anamosa, Iowa, Fairview Township, Jones
County; nativity Germany; he enlisted 13 Jun 1861; was mustered 17 Aug 1861; promoted
Fifth Sergeant 1 Sep 1861, and to Fourth Sergeant 4 Mar 1862. Among other places, served
at Camp Warren, Burlington, Iowa on 30 Sep 1861; Camp Carrolton, Arkansas on 14 Jan 1863;
and a camp near Tolla, Missouri on April 1863.
His brother 1LT Franz H. J. O'Bladen also served in the Civil War from WI with the
34th Wisconsin Militia Infantry and settled in Wisconsin after he was mustered out.
Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Tom Prost
