HENRY BEAL, aged twenty, born in Schuylkill, Schuylkill county, Pennsylvania, removed to Illinois, and enlisted from Bath. He served to the close of the war and was mustered out with the regiment. He returned to Illinois and resumed farming in McLean county, where he died in about 1880.

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.
