Hi

This is only a guess on my part, but it seems to me the photo shows him in a Civil War uniform which is why I asked when he might be born. I did a Google search and I'm thinking it was a Calvary uniform. If you look closely you can see the number 8 on the hat. I searched the site below and there is one possibility from Pennsylvania who served in the 8th, but I have no idea if that could be him:

If it was the Civil War there is probably more information out there for him. I wasn't able to come up with anything good in Minnesota at this point, but I suspect someone from the Military message board can probably add more information. If you do get more post that information and maybe we can fill in more pieces for you
