In a paper written by Capt. Tilmon Kyger:

"I certify on honor, that Enoch Smith, a private of Capt. T. D. Kyger's Co. C of the 73rd Reg't of Infy Vol. of the State of Illinois, born in Vermilion Co., aged 27 years, 5 ft. 8in. high, fair complexion, hazel eyes, auburn hair, & by occupation a farmer, having joined the company on its original organization at Georgetown, Ill. July 21, 1862 & enrolled in it at the muster into the service of the United States at Camp Butler on the 21th day of Aug. 1862 to service in the Reg't for the term of 3 years & having served Honestly, & Faithfully with his Co. in the field up to the 20th day of September 1863 when making a charge in the Battle of Chicamauga, Ga. (in which he was repulsed) he was missing & dropped from the rolls May 22, 1864 as "Killed."
.
Pape Mortuary, Danville, IL lists Enoch as being buried in McKendree Cemetery,Georgetown, IL. Enoch is not actually buried in McKendree. He was buried at the site of the battle where his death occurred (Chicamauga, GA). There may be a marker with his name on it in McKendree.
