He was enlisted on January 15, 1872, in Chicago, Illinois, by Captain Samuel Young.  His previous occupation was laborer. He was discharged on January 15, 1877, upon expiration of service, as a corporal of excellent character. He had a sandy complexion, grey eyes, light hair, and was 5’8” tall.  He was baptized ‘Jens Mathiasen Móller’ but enlisted under the name of Jan Moller.  On pension records he is listed as Jan Moller and elsewhere as John Muller, James Muller, or James Mullen. His gravestone at Mount Moriah lists his name as Jan Mollar and that is what I am using here. While living in Deadwood in 1927, he resided at 63 Stewart Street.  He was wounded in the right thigh during the siege on the hilltop on June 25, 1876. He was later transported to Fort Abraham Lincoln on the steamer Far West.
