Zacheus traveled to Indiana in 1838 at the age of 4, arriving in Evansville, Indiana, after riding down the Ohio River on a raft built by his father. Zacheus’ family was in Gibson County for at least a short time.

His father died a few years after moving to Indiana but the rest of the family was intact when the 1850 census was taken. Six years later, Zacheus married and by 1860 most of his family members had died, including his first born daughter, Lesteria.

Zacheus joined the Union 8th Cavalry, Company H, in Henderson, Kentucky, on 13 September 1862 and mustered out on 23 September 1863, at Russellville, Kentucky. By 1870 he had moved his family to Ash Hill Township, Butler County, Missouri. He farmed there and had a cotton gin in 1875.
