Henry was a Civil War soldier in Company 2nd, Massachusetts 2nd Infantry, the 62nd Mass and the 4th unattached MA. We believe this photo was taken in the 1860's when he was a soldier in Saint Louis, although more work needs to be done on his service and the retravels of his regiment. He seems to have lived in the areas of Chicago Illinois, Massachusetts, Iowa and Missouri in his long life. He died at age 85, unusual in those days. He was listed as a bookseller when young. Any help or correction appreciated, email Debra here.
A beautiful image and early autographed Civil War CDV photo on Henry in his twenties. It was found in Brimfield, Hampden County, Massachusetts, not far at all from his place of birth. Sawtelle is another spelling of this surname.

Note: Hello from ~debra. I have spent years collecting over 10,000 ID’d lost family photos & paper from US flea markets & antique shops. I do the best gen research I can, but am always open to corrections. This is an original antique item, not a reprint. A new high quality rigid sleeve is included for extra protection, especially during shipping. You may buy a piece alone, or large intimate 300 dpi scans of the front and back sent immediately via email, or both. Please search carefully, as they are often found together and many may be related. I also invite you to join me at Ancestorville Genealogy on facebook. Thank you, enjoy! ~Debra Clifford (contact info on top bar)
