Aaron enlisted as a private in Company E. 4th Infantry Regiment Ohio, on 16 Apr 1861 at age 23. A few weeks latter upon hearing Abraham Lincoln's call for 'three years men' was made public, the majority of the regiment reenlisted for three years. He was discharged on 18 Oct 1862, after which he transferred into the Regular Army, 4th Regiment Artillery. He mustered out on 13 Feb 1864 at Fort Washington, MD as a private. Aaron married ca. 1873 Maggie (maiden name unknown) in Ohio and they had no known children. They lived in the Archibold, Ohio area from about 1880 onward.
