Jacob Vreeland - Yeoman

Petty Officer Jacob Vreeland, Yeoman, appears on the U.S.S. Tecumseh casualty list for the 5 August 1864 Battle of Mobile Bay [1], [2].

I am unable to locate Vreeland on any Naval Rendezvous return from 1855 to 1864 or locate a rendezvous index card for those years with his name on it. His name is most likely an alias he enlisted under.
