George Garner

George Garner was born in 1838.

George was 23 year sold and probably living in Muskegon County, Michigan, when he enlisted in Company H on May 10, 1861. (Company H, formerly the “Muskegon Rangers,” was made up largely of men from the vicinity of Muskegon and Newaygo counties.)

He was wounded on May 31, 1862, at Fair Oaks, Virginia, and died of his wounds probably on June 19, 1862, in Chesapeake hospital at Fortress Monroe, Virginia. George was originally buried on the grounds of Chesapeake hospital, and was possibly among the unknown soldiers reinterred in Hampton National Cemetery.

No pension seems to be available.
