Jacob Geary - Civil War Soldier

Jacob Geary was born 10 Feb 1847, the son of Adam Gary and Susan Nicklow. Jacob enlisted as a soldier in the Civil War at the age of 17 in Company E, 107th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry. He served in several Virginia battles. He was discharged June 1865 in Washington, DC. During the war he suffered from exposure to the cold and was treated repeatedly for rheumatism, deafness of the left ear, and chronic diarrhea. In 1890, he was declared almost totally disabled because of his wartime service, and received a federal pension.

If anyone has copies of Jacob's pension file, I would be happy to include it.
