Dear readers,

Please help us keep DeadFred alive. 90% of our expenses are supported by donations averaging $5. Not many visitors contribute. If each visitor reading this right now gave $2, our fundraiser would be done by the time you finish reading this. That's right, the price of a large can of soda would do it.

If DeadFred is helpful to you, please take a moment to help us. We are a very small group of volunteers serving thousands of readers daily with very little outside support. DeadFred is a place to share and discover the faces of your ancestors. The funds we receive go toward maintaining and improving your chances of discovery. Please help us so we can continue to help you.

Thank you,
Joe Bott

He was buried in Rose Hill Cemetery, Hagerstown, Washington, MD. Milford Schindel knew John Brown, and he witnessed the invasion of Virginia in 1861 by the Federal 90-Day men. In 1863 he was a detached courier in the Army of Northern Virginia, Confederate States of America. In 1864 he served in the cavalry fighting against General Sherman's Union forces in the Shenandoah Valley. He participated in the burning of Chambersburg, Pennsylvania. After the Civil War, Milford Schindel ran guns from San Antonio, Texas to the Republican forces of Juarez in Chihuahua, Mexico fighting against Maxmillian. Schindel became the aide-de-camp to General Ortega. He held the rank of colonel in 1867 and was at Queretaro, Mexico when Maxmillian was executed. Milfrod Schindel returned to Texas and was foreman of an outfit of Vaqueros on the Rancho Santa Gertrudes of Captain R. King. Becoming ill in 1869, he returned to Maryland. Upon recouping he went to Kentucky, returning to Maryland in 1876. He then became manager and chemist for Huyett & Schindel's Commercial Fertilizer Mills. Later he turned to farming.
