Re: Alonzo BENTLEY~ Buffalo Soldier?

On the 1910 Census he was 24 years of age and he resided with his father and mother Anderson and Jane Bentley in Fulton county Georgia, the South Bend District.

I hope this is helpful in solving this puzzle.....it seems he was too young or too old for any of the wars I know about but the census records the number "5" in the Veteran column which I take to mean he served the country for five years.

Of course the whole thing could be a recording mistake but I am hoping it isn't.
