Reason for unfinished term:
It appears he resigned to serve in the United States military. A note in the St. Paul Pioneer and Democrat, January 7, 1862 confirmed that he resigned. His term end date is uncertain due to the fact that we don't know his official resignation date. The date listed is the day he enlisted in the military. He was listed in the 1861 Senate Journal through the end of the 1861 session.
