          Ambrose Lafayett (A.L.) Precise and John F. Precise are on the ADAH Civil War Service Database. A.L. record is definitely worth a read. Be sure to read all three of his. Just enter precise in the search engine.

          John F.'s record is for a pension so there should be good info on his pension application. You can check with NARA if they have it.
