    Shorpy Historical Photo Archive :: Private Michael Maloney: 1864

  • Nichelle Lei

    Perhaps a relative....My great grandfather was Michael Maloney (not the same one pictured). The man in this pic shares some features with my own father, Gregg Maloney, in my opinion. Another pinner wrote: "He emigrated from Ireland to Minnesota, where he was drafted into the Union Army in 1864. His regiment served mainly in Georgia. He survived the war and died at age 54 in 1884."
