I thought this would make a nice conversation piece. The image has a piece of paper glued to the back with his signature so we know who it is. The "captain" comes from his civilian occupation. He was born in Hanover in 1834 and immigrated to Galveston in 1854. Enlisted in 1862 in Company B 1st Tx Heavy Artillery and transferred to the Marine Dept. Served on the "Diana" "Morning Light" "Flash" and "A.C. Shelton". He was my great-great grandmother's 2nd husband. They divorced in 1890. He died May 1905 and was buried in Lakeview Cemetery in Galveston. He has a Confederate marker. Based on other photos he wore that chin beard most of his adult life.
