CUYLER, John M., surgeon, U. S. army, born in Georgia, about 1810; died in Morristown, New Jersey, 26 April 1884. He entered the army as assistant surgeon in 1834, being among the first to pass the rigid examination instituted in 1833. He was actively engaged in the Creek war of 1838, and the Seminole war of 1840, and served with distinction through the Mexican war, receiving promotion as major and surgeon on 16 February 1847. From 1848 till 1855 he served at West Point. As senior medical officer at Fort Monroe, during the first years of the civil war, his services were invaluable in organizing the medical department of the armies congregated there. He served afterward as medical inspector and acting medical inspector-general. He served on examining boards, and sought to uphold a high professional standard among army surgeons. He was promoted lieutenant colonel and medical inspector on 11 June 1862, brevetted brigadier-general on 13 March 1865, and promoted to the rank of colonel on 26 June 1876. After the war he was medical director of important departments until his retirement, 30 June 1882.
