Biography or Information of Interest: David is a bit of a mystery. While he died just after the war, it is not clear from what little information I can find if he died from a war-related injury or illness, although I suspect that is the case. Since I currently don’t have access to his pension records (for his wife and orphans), I don’t have the necessary details.

Buried: Spring Creek Cemetery, Emmet Twp., McDonough Co., Illinois
