Taken from the Illinois Veteran's Commission list of 1956
The books contain a list of veterans by cemetery. Information given is: the war in which they served; their rank; branch of service; and unit.
Most times it gives the date of death. Sometimes it gives the grave#, lot, block, and section. It also denotes if they have a government headstone. Because many cemeteries have been vandalized and many stones are now unreadable these books may be the only place you will find the information of a veteran's death and burial.
