Cornelius Moll

Cornelius Moll was born in 1843 in the Netherlands, the son of Magiel (?).

Cornelius’ family immigrated to America and eventually settled in western Michigan.

In any case Cornelius stood 5’8’ with blue eyes, red hair and a light complexion and was a 19-year-old farmer possibly living in Spring Lake, Ottawa County or in Saranac, Ionia County when he enlisted with his father’s consent on February 22 or 28, 1862, in Company I at Saranac for 3 years, and was mustered the same day.

He was reported sick in the hospital (probably Chesapeake) at Fortress Monroe, Virginia, in March and April of 1862, until he was discharged for disease on June 18, 1862.

No pension seems to be available.
