Carlo Piepho was born (most likely) in Germany about 1822. After coming to America he settled in Cincinnati, OH.
On 13 Jun 1861 he enlisted, as a Sargeant, in the Ohio infantry. On 30 Jul 1862 he re-enlisted as a Captain in the 108th Regiment Volunteer Ohio Infantry.
By November 1863 he was a lieutenant colonel and participated in the Battle of Chattanooga, November 23 through 25, 1863. His chain of command during that battle was:
Union Army Major General Ulysses S. Grant
He survived the battle but after that I have no data for him. He does not appear on any US Census. It is rumored that he had a noble lineage in Germany and was the source of the Piepho family crest.
