Note: Georg Andreas Platt used. The "History of Sauk County" (under August Platt,p. 837) gives his name as Andrew, as do his Civil War records. O. R. Clement's mother (August's daughter), on the other hand, gives hisname as George, as apparently does the 1870 census. Andrew Platt lived with his family at Rodheim, near Giessen, Germany. After losing his wife by death in Germany, he emigrated to the United States in 1852 with his six sons and settled in Baraboo Township. Herehe engaged in agricultural pursuits until his death in 1871. While he was past the age of military service, he fought for the landof his adoption during the Civil War. He enlisted on 17 Oct 1861, andserved in Company 'K', 2nd Wisconsin Infantry Regiment, until illness causedhis discharge on 20 Apr 1862. Note that he served in the same company withhis son Conrad, who was killed in action four months after his father's discharge. (Andrew's service records list his name as 'Andrew Plott'and his home as Freedom, Wisconsin.) Andrew always showed himself to be a good and public-spirited citizen.His son, Henry, succeeded his father on the home farm.
Note: O. R. Clement (Oct 1997) notes that his sources differ on the name
