The following biography was written by a previous manager, likely the creator listed below:

"William Henry Dodd is the son of Charles Scott Dodd and Mary Templeton JONES Dodd.

William Henry Dodd was a Private. Residence of Loaami. Date of Muster was 8/21/1862. Comapny "I" 73rd Illinois Infantry. Died at Perryville, Ky 10/8/1862 from wounds.

The Union dead were first buried in regimental plots, but these troops were moved to the short-lived Perryville National Cemetery. Finally, these soldiers were interred in Camp Nelson National Cemetery, in Jessamine County, Kentucky. Of the more than 1,000 Union soldiers initially buried at Perryville, only 300 of them had their identification intact by the time they got to Camp Nelson. By World War I, the U.S. Army adopted what we now call "dog tags" to help identify dead soldiers. Since these were not used in the Civil War, many of the troops killed at Perryville are unknown soldiers."

*managed by a descendant of Charles Scott Dodd and Mary Templeton "Polly" (Jones) Dodd. William Henry Dodd never married and had no descendants. I will pass this memorial on to any descendant of one of his brothers or sisters.
