    Blacksmith 
    Military 1864  Lancaster, Dallas Co., Texas Find all individuals with events at this location  [10

    • This is likely not completely true. All indications show that he might have worked at the armory, making pistols maybe, but was not in charge.

    • Listed as a gunsmith

      He does not appear in the 1870 Agricultural schedule or manufacturing schedule. There is no industry schedule, which is where I would have expected to find him.
