Illinois, USA
Death: Apr., 1900

E. F. Isbell died at Lundy last week, aged 60 years. (Walker Lake Bulletin (Hawthorne, NV), 4/11/1900)

*****
Note: Mr. Isbell was a Civil War veteran, received approval for a pension a short time before his death. He had made his application for it in 1898.

Civil War Service Record:
Private, Co. M, 17th Illinois Cavalry

*****
Cautionary Note: Mr. Isbell might have been taken to the Mono Lake Cemetery for burial, or to Bodie or to Bridgeport. The Lundy cemetery, if it can even be found today, was not in very good condition when I saw it in the late 1990s.
