In the Decisions of the Comptroller of the Treasury (Illinois), Vol. 13 published c. 1903, it appears that later in the war, that Jacob L. Fahnestock re-enlisted on February 24, 1865 in Co. B of the 7th Regiment of Illinois Volunteer Infantry. His name is, however, not found on the records of this company in the Adhutant General's Reports. However, the Comptroller saw enough evidence that he awarded bounty money that Jacob L. Fahnestock for his time in the service, which he did not receive at that time. During his time with the 7th, Jacob served as a Sergeant in Co. B. It is not known when Jacob joined the 7th, but, the 7th participated in the Battle of Bentonville, North Carolina on March 19-21, which sealed Confederate General Johnston's fate, thus helping to bring the war to a close. The 7th then participated in the occupation of Goldsboro March 24, and of Raleigh April 14 and was present at Bennett's House April 26 for the surrender of Johnston and his army. They then marched to Washington, D. C., via Richmond, Va., April 29-May 19, participating in the Grand Review on May 24, 1865. They then moved to Louisville, Kentucky in Juneof 1865 and did duty there until July. It appears the majority of the regiment was mustered out on July 9, 1865, however, it appears that Jacob L. Fahnestock was not mustered out until July 15, 1865.
Jacob L. Fahnestock was employed as a Government Gauger for some time.
Mr. and Mrs. Brazena have three children: Grace, born November 20, 1885; Cora, born May 15, 1889, and Myrtle, born June 25, 1895. Mr. Brazena is a conservative Democrat, and is Postmaster at Wolcott.
