Sirell was my gt-gt-grandfather. He also served in the Civil War in the 8th Vermont Infantry (St. Albans Company F). He was wounded during the Siege of Port Hudson (Louisiana). He later applied for, and was granted, an invalid pension. You can obtain his service and pension records from the National Archives. He gave a Georgia, Vt address when he reenlisted in Hancock's First Army Corps (7th Regiment, Co. I) after the war. The family eventually settled in Albany, NY after brief stops in Connecticut and Cohoes, NY. When his health began to fail, he entered the Soldier's home in Bennington, VT, where he died on 9 May 1901.
