If you have access to the census files on Heritage Quest through your
local library, you may want to seek your relative in the census for
1860, 1870 and 1880. Often the first place an immigrant lives is
with relatives. You will also find out about his occupation and
other personal data.
You might also want to check out the online site about Jewish Civil
War participants (on both sides). I assume he was of conscriptable age.
