He wears the classic uniform that the regiment is known for, a dark pillbox style cap with a stamped brass wreath on the front and the regimental number “3” at center, dark triple-breasted shell jacket with light trousers that have a wide dark leg stripe. Davenport is posed standing at the position of “ATTENTION.”

Contrast and clarity are excellent. Mount has moderately trimmed corners. Paper and mount have light surface dirt.

Reverse has a photographer’s imprint for E. P. MASTERSON… PORT JERVIS, N.Y. Top has an old pencil ID that reads “JOS DAVENPORT 119 PROSPECT ST, KINGSTON, N.Y.”

Joseph A. Davenport was born in 1838 in Colesville, New Jersey. He enlisted as a private in Company B, 3rd New Jersey Cavalry on January 13, 1864 and was mustered out on August 1, 1865.

All that is known of his post-war life is that he moved to Ilion, New York in 1916 and died at his daughter’s house in Utica after a four month illness on May 29, 1918 and is buried in Ilion’s Armory Hill Cemetery.

The 3rd New Jersey Cavalry was raised in 1864 and served with the Cavalry Corps of the Army of the Potomac and were engaged at Winchester, Opequan, Fishers Hill, Tom’s Brook, Cedar Creek, Five Forks, Sailor’s Creek and Appomattox.  [ad] [ph:L]
