Son Daniel P was a soldier in the Civil War, Wisconsin 10th Infantry. He died of typhoid fever.

The Ancestry.com database "Wisconsin Marriages, pre-1907" has this marriage record:
  Daniel P Sedgwick, 18 Nov 1862, Dodge Volume 02 Page 0264
That date is not possible, as he had died in 1861. He and Adelia are together in the 1860 census.
