He enlisted in the One Hundred and First Regiment Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry, 101st Regiment, at the beginning of the civil war, and served until honorably discharged on account of defective hearing. Later he re-enlisted and served until the close of the war.

He married Elizabeth Morganstein, and six months after the birth of their first son, Jacob, came to the United States. Children: Jacob, born in France, in 1847; Elizabeth; Peter; Emma; George W., of further mention; John; Ella; Henrietta.
