History of the 85th Illinois Volunteers
Illinois Volunteer Infantry

CHAPTER XXXII.
Pages 420 - 432

HENRY HENFLING, aged twenty, farmer; enlisted from Spring Bay. His health failed early in the Kentucky campaign, and he died at Harrodsburg, Ky., October 24, 1862.

Company F was enrolled by John Kennedy at Pekin, Tazewell county, between June 15th and 21st, 1862, in anticipation of a call for additional troops. This was almost a month earlier that the enrollment of any other company in the Eighty-fifth. Unfortunately the enlistment roll of this company does not always definitely fix the birth-place of the men. At the organization of the company the following commissioned officers were elected: John Kennedy, captain; Robert A. Bowman, first lieutenant, and Richard W. Tenney, second lieutenant.
During the three years' service 25 of the company were struck by bullets or shell in battle, 9 of whom were killed, 7 died of wounds and 9 recovered, 4 were accidentally killed, 10 died of disease, 23, were discharged, 4 were transferred and at the final muster out there were but 30 present.
The company was always bravely commanded, and never failed to do its full duty toward the preservation of the nation's integrity.
