*It may be worthy of mention, that a stray bullet, carelessly fired from the camp of the 44th Cincinnati Volunteers, struck the shovel from this man's hands, passing directly through the broad part of the shovel handle, and within a few inches of his head.  The brave fellow never flinched, but gaily proceeded with his day's work, as if he enjoyed the smelling of gunpowder.

*** This worthy man was accidentally killed.  A large tree he had nearly chopped down in clearing obstructions from before the guns of Fort Shaler, swayed by the wind, fell upon and crushed him, a day or two only before the colored men were relieved from duty; after their return to Cincinnati he was buried by his late companions and the officers of the Black Brigade - much honored and lamented.
