85th ILL Inf Co I

History of the 85th Illinois Volunteers
Illinois Volunteer Infantry
by

1901

CHAPTER XXXV.
Pages 470 - 481

CORPORAL WILLIAM A. GRAHAM, aged twenty-three, single, farmer, born in Washington, Fayette county, Ohio, and enlisted from Duncan's Mills, Ill. He was promoted to be corporal; served with his company to the close of the war, and was mustered out with the regiment.
Company I was enrolled by William H. Marble under date of August 1, 1862, in that part of Fulton county bordering on the Illinois river. The records of the company show that there were carelessly kept, and are very defective in many respects.

The company was organized at Marble's mills by the election of the following commissioned officers: William H. Marble, captain; David M. Holstead, first lieutenant, and Hugh McHugh, second lieutenant.

One man was killed in action, and 12 were wounded who lived beyond the close of the war, 4 officers resigned, 2 were mustered out with the regiment and one was promoted, 18 men were discharged, 11 died of disease, 5 were transferred and 21 returned home at the close of the war.

In the individual sketches which follow an attempt is made to give a concise statement of the history of each member of the company, each of whom may look back with pride upon the results of the war, and rejoice in the fact that it was his privilege to bear an honorable part in the great struggle for freedom.
