|Death: ||Nov. 23, 1862|
On the tombstone:
"Age 18 yr 8 mo 9 da
Co. E. 85 Ill. Inf.
Remains near Bowling Green, Ky."
NOTE: There is a Daniel/David Armstrong at the National Cemetery in Nashville. Is the name wrong on the tombstone?
Daniel is mentioned as David in the 85th Inf. book by Henry Aten and the Nashville Cemetery records at http://www.bonps.org/natlcem/natlcem.htm states "ARMSTRONG DAVID N 10932 12/5/62 IL PRIVATE" but the stone I found at the cemetery says differently. The archives states "ARMSTRONG, DAVID, PVT, E, 85 IL US INF, PETERSBURG" as well. There isn't a Daniel listed in the Illinois State Archives database. I believe that Daniel and David are the same person. He died at Bowling Green and was buried in the nearby National Cemetery in Nashville.
