    New development! George Channell was in the US Army, briefly. According to a Register of Enlistments, teamster George W. Channell of York County, Pennsylvania enlisted in Baltimore, Maryland on 24 May 1880, at the age of 24. He served as a Private in Company F of the 5th Artillery before being discharged on February 11, 1881 due to a disability suffered in Atlanta, Georgia. He also appears in the 1880 Federal Census, living in Fawn Grove, Pennsylvania in June, so maybe he didn’t ship out immediately.
