The man with the vest and drum, seated front row, is Charles Montgomery Andres, a Union soldier with the 9th Connecticut Regiment. He was born Charles Adrien Jean Baptiste Andree in New Orleans, went to an orphanage at age 4, served in the civil war as Charles Andre and arrived in what was then Hempstead County in 1967 as Charles Montgomery Andres. He married Nancy Ann Waddle, daughter of Archibald Waddle n 1970 and had seven children, six boys and a girl. There has been a book on his life published -- Reveille, A Story of Survival, War and Family -- written by his great-grandson George S. Smith, of the Sutton Community.
