This database on the Illinois State Archives site, lists the names of 
male residents of the Illinois Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Home 
admitted from its opening in 1887 through September 1916 and female 
residents from 1908 through September 1916.

"In 1885 the General Assembly created the 
Illinois Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Home at Quincy 
to provide subsistence and a home for honorably discharged and 
disabled veterans of the Mexican and Civil Wars. 
In succeeding years Illinois veterans of all wars and veterans’ 
wives, mothers, and daughters became eligible for admission. 

In 1973 the General Assembly changed the home’s name to the 
Illinois Veterans’ Home. Since 1976 the Department of Veterans’ 
Affairs has administered the home."

Listed here are those residents from Jefferson County. 
I will add the remaining records that are not linked ASAP
