Lafayette Hale

Lafayette Hale was born in 1845 in Washtenaw County, Michigan.

Lafayette was working as a farmer stood 5’2” with blue eyes, black and hair and a dark complexion when he reportedly enlisted in Company H, Third Michigan infantry, for three years, on December 29, 1863, at Corunna, Shiawassee County, and was mustered the same day.

There is no further record and only the Muster and Descriptive roll card (dated Grand Rapids, Michigan, February 8, 1864) in his military service record at the National Archives. Nor does it appear he entered any other Michigan regiment.
