Solomon Peck - Private   
Solomon is a Great Great Grandfather on my Mothers side. Mustered in Sturgis Michigan, trained and marched to Nashville, Tn. He got ill in Nashville Tn. and was transferred to a hospital. He was listed as a desserter after being in the hospital for so long. Got out and married shortley there after. Because of his status as missing in duty he had a hard time proving an honorable discharge and had to fight for his pension papers. He eventually won. They later moved to Wessington Springs, SD where he had passed away in the early 1900's. I am looking for unit pictures of the 13th as all I have of him is a picture in his very later years wearing military vest. Also have a picture at his grave site burial w/full military funeral Prospect Hills Cemetary, Wessington Springs, SD.
