b. 26/11/1841 Indiana. d. 18/03/1914 Indiana.

 

DATE OF MOH ACTION: 09/05/1864 Varnells Station, Georgia.

 

Ferrier was born in Indiana on 18 March 1914. He enlisted into the 2nd Indiana Cavalry. He died on 26 November 1841 and his remains are interred at the Nebo Cemetery in Camden, Indiana.

 

MOH CITATION:

 

While his regiment was retreating, voluntarily gave up his horse to his brigade commander who had been unhorsed and was in danger of capture, thereby enabling him to rejoin and rally the disorganized troops. Sgt. Ferrier himself was captured and confined in Confederate prisons, from which he escaped and, after great hardship, rejoined the Union lines.

 

BURIAL LOCATION: NEBO CEMETERY, CAMDEN, INDIANA.
