John Anderson

My great grandfather, Solomon ANDERSON (1856-1930), was born in
Poughkeepsie, New York. I know he was a member of the Old Guard
regiment of NYC since an obituary notice placed by the Old Guard of
the City of New York refers to him as Captain Sol ANDERSON. He died 07
Mar 1930, and the funeral was in Temple Emanu-El on March 9. I also
have a photograph of him marching down Broadway with his regiment
dressed in the full Old Guard regalia (beaver hats, etc.).

I have never been able to confirm this, however, despite many years
searching. Does anyone have any suggestions how I can get information
about his service?
