Has a wife, Elisabeth, and a 4-year-old son, Jacob, who are on the company rolls and follow the regiment. They are currently missing in the confusion of the retreat to Corunna.
(As a sergeant with a wife on the rolls he probably has been with the Regiment a while. He likely joined in Nova Scotia in 1803 but hasn’t seen battle with the Regiment until Fifth Battalion reached the Penisula last year, when he was injured and caught the eye of someone higher up. He may have been a soldier in another British regiment in North America before 1803.)
