I do have his record from the Civil War Pension Index but unfortunately the NARA did not have it in their files. They did say in their response that it should be in their collection and that they would try to acquire it sometime in the future. They referred my request to the Veterans Administration who have then forwarded it to a couple of different VA offices. I'm still waiting to hear if they have been able to located the records.
