53 Ancestors in 53 Weeks - #5 Frederick William Kosack
Frederick, Edward and Otto joined the union army in Baltimore, Maryland September 1861. Frederick was a private in Co. K, 2 Reg't Maryland Infantry. His last name has various spellings while in the military. Kosack, Kossack, Cossick and Kosak. He was discharged with a medical problem February 1863. He returned to Baltimore but was living in Bladensburg, MD in the 1880 census.
He married Augusta Wanda Kleinstuck, who I profiled last week, 25 July 1876 in Washington, DC. Frederick was a woodcarver by trade. He died 28 March 1911 of TB and is buried at Rock Creek Cemetery in Washington, DC.
My goal is to find out exactly where they came from for sure. There are several different notations as to various places where the family originated.
