SERGEANT URIAH B. LINDSEY, aged thirty-three, born in Cass county, Illinois, married, carpenter, enlisted from Bath, was chosen sergeant at the organization of the company, and was transferred to the Veteran Reserve corps September 1, 1863. At the close of his service he returned to Bath, Ill., where he died February 28, 1898.

Company D was enrolled by Dr. Charles W. Houghton, residing at Bath, Mason county, and was recruited between July 18 and August 8, 1862. At the organization of the company, the following commissioned officers were elected: Charles W. Houghton, captain; Comfort H. Ramon, first lieutenant, and Charles H. Chatfield, second lieutenant.

This company was mustered in with 95 officers and men, of whom 5 were killed in action, 3 died of wounds, 1 was accidentally killed and 15 received wounds in battle which did not prove fatal while in the service, 13 died of disease, 22 were discharged for disability, 1 was transferred, and 40 officers and men were mustered out with the regiment.

Under the careful training of Lieutenant Chatfield this company became very proficient in the skirmish drill, and upon all occasions performed its duty with zeal and energy.
