U.S., Civil War Pension Index: General Index to Pension Files, 1861-1934 about Frederick Herbst
Name: Frederick Herbst
Widow: Catherine Herbst
Roll Number: T288_213

Applied for 28th March 1863, Frederick was in the New York Infantry.

I have checked online birth records for Bayern, Bavaria, no record turns up for Frederick, I suspect that his father was Albert and mother Louisa.

There are 8 different registration districts in Bayern, I suggest you contact Joanne who is an expert on Bayern records.

Brendan In my search there was a third child Franz Rudolph Herbst. Did you happen to come across him? Bill

Hi Bill,

He does not turn up in the 1860 census with the family, he may have been born between 1860 and 1864, I will have a look for him.
