**I believe an honest mistake was made when the military marker for Wm T. Hudnall was ordered to be placed in Astoria Cemetery. Application: They gave the fathers birth and death dates and the initial T when it was ordered. But the regiment applied for was the 85th Illinois Infantry, which was the unit his son Wm C served in.
Wm T Hudnall served with the 11th Illinois Cavalry.
So the Wm Hudnall military marker seen here was ordered for the father but has the son's regiment on it. It is the grave of the father.
The son Pvt William C Hudnall and his family are buried in Forest Lawn Cemetery, Omaha NE. His memorial number is 61110983.

WILLIAM C. HUNDALL was born in Russellville, Logan county, Kentucky, November 25, 1843, removed with his parents to Illinois in 1849, and settled in Astoria, where he was a clerk when he enlisted. He served with his company until the spring on 1864, when he was mounted and served at brigade headquarters until the close of the war and was mustered out with the regiment. Returning to Astoria he became a harness maker, and was tax collector in 1892. He resides in Astoria, Ill., but is sadly afflicted with catarrh of the head, which baffles medical skill.
Recruiting for Company H was commenced on July 31st, and by the 6th of August, 1862, the first of two companies enlisted at Astoria had been enrolled. As with Company G, this company stands on the record as having been enrolled by the FHon. S. P. Cummings. At the organization of the company the following commissioned officers were elected: Nathaniel McClelland, captain, Luke Elliot, first lieutenant, and William Cohren, second lieutenant.
During the three years' service 29 of this company were hit with shot or shell, 4 of whom were killed action , 1 died of wounds, 24 received wounds from which they recovered or were discharged, 6 officers resigned, 11 men died of disease, 24 were discharged, 6 were transferred, and 45 were present at the final muster out.
Of Company H it may be fairly said that it performed its full measure of duty, bore its full share of hardships and suffered it full proportion of loss. The record of the regiment was made brighter by its harmonious action in camp and field, by its steady, soldierly bearing in battle, and its prompt and intelligent response to every call for duty.
