Zindle, Daniel

Perhaps the most remarkable men from the town were the Zindle brothers. They were born in Monroe, of American parents, of German ancestry.

Daniel served three months in the Sixty- ninth Militia in the spring of 1861, and on return enlisted for three years in the Seventy- fourth Regiment. He was wounded in right arm at Williamsburg, May, 1862, but continued in the field until removed. His arm was amputated, but before the stump was healed he took the field at Malvern Hill, where he received six balls; one in the upper part of his forehead came near causing his death, one in the thigh shattered the lone of the left leg. Some eight inches of the bone from the hip- joint downwards was removed, and a silver tube inserted, around which the muscles and flesh reformed. Though considerably shot to pieces and a wreck; he would not have left the field at his own desire.

John Zindle, Fifty-sixth Regiment, had arm shot off at Fair Oaks, and died of the injury July 14, 1862.

Jonas Zindle enlisted in the Eighteenth Regiment, and was transferred to the One Hundred and Fifty-eighth.

Nelson Zindle, in the Seventh Heavy Artillery, was taken prisoner in June, 1864.

Monroe N. Zindle enlisted Feb. 9, 1864, in Seventh Heavy Artillery, and was reported "missing in action, June 10, 1864.
