Three Rivers / Trois-Rivières Quebec

In Reply to: Alexander Cheney - Killed at Shiloh by Roger Wright of 1923

Three River is the English name for this area of Quebec if that helps identify this soldier's family:

"Trois-Rivières is a city in the Mauricie region of Quebec, Canada, located along the densely populated Quebec City-Windsor Corridor at the confluence of the Saint-Maurice and Saint Lawrence rivers. It was founded in 1634, the second permanent settlement in New France. The current city was created in 2002 from the merging of six towns : Cap-de-la-Madeleine, Pointe-du-Lac, Sainte-Marthe-du-Cap, Saint-Louis-de-France, Trois-Rivières and Trois-Rivières-Ouest. "

If this Alexander Cheney was born in Germany I have no idea where it might be.

How or when he arrived in Davenport Iowa before enlisting into the 14th Iowa Infantry is unknown. If anyone has a guess or clue to his family, or suggestions, any help is welcome.
