LAUMAN, Jacob Gartner, soldier, born in Taneytown, Maryland, 20 January, 1813; died in Burlington, Iowa, in February, 1867. His early days were spent in York county, Pennsylvania, and he was educated at the academy there. In 1844 he removed to Burlington, Iowa, where he engaged in commerce. He was commissioned colonel of the 7th Iowa regiment in July, 1861, served under General Grant in Missouri, and was severely wounded at Behnont, 7 November, 1861.
