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.
