His actual name was Balthasar Boeniger. He arrived in New York from Switzerland May 6, 1861. I am especially searching for pension record information because he had a son named Adam whom I believe received a pension as a result of Balthasar's service. From records I have located not related to Civil War records, I think the pension was $4 a month. The son's name was Adam Buenniger and the recipient of the pension was Christian Jacob, his guardian.
I will very much appreciate any help.
