    Notes 
    • Per the research of Ray Leidinger, "James Sebastian served in the Civil War, in the north's Potomac Home Brigade, Maryland Cavalry. He was a Private in Company K, 1st. Regiment. James fought at Antietem, and his horse was shot out from under him. He fell and his head hit a stone. He was in the hospital for quite some time. He continued to have problems with this injury until his death. In 1889, he was committed to the Sylvan Retreat, which was a facility here in Cumberland for the mentally ill. He died there in 1902."

      "James Sebastian enlisted in the union army at the same time his cousin, John William, enlisted. John William was Sarah (McKenzie) McKenzie's brother. Apparently, James and John were close friends. James and John died within weeks of each other in 1902. Both are buried in the St. patrick's Cemetery, Cumberland."

      Per Ray Leidinger, James Sebastian was christianed on 19 Dec 1873, and married 30 Dec 1873, both events in St. Patrick's Catholic Church, Cumberland, Maryland by the Rev. Edward Brennan.
