Admission of Mexican War & Civil War Veterans

1887 - 1889

Section #1

The late Lowell L. Volkel indexed this volume in 1975. The book consists of actual copies of the printed records of the Soldiers' & Sailors' Home in Quincy.

The preface in the book includes the following information: "The Soldiers' and Sailors' Home was established by an act of the General Assembly, June 26, 1885, "to provide a home and subsistence for honorably discharged ex-soldiers and sailors who enlisted from Illinois in the U.S. Army or Navy, during the war of the rebellion and the Mexican War, and who have since become and are now residents of the State of Illinois, and who may have become disabled through ... such service, or who by reason of old age, or other disabilities, are disqualified from earning a livelihood...."

The commission appointed by Governor Oglesby to locate the home under the provisions of this act, selected a tract of 140 acres just outside the northern limits of the city of Quincy. Building operations began in May, 1886. The home was formally opened in March, 1887.

This book contains copies of pages from the Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, and Seventh Biennial Reports of the Board of Trustees and Officers of the Illinois Soldiers' and Sailors' Home. Only those pages listing admissions to the Home were copied. Much additional data about the operation of the Home may be found in these reports. Copies of the full reports are in the Illinois State Library.

Each soldier or sailor was assigned a "Registry Number" upon admission to the Home. These numbers were assigned in consecutive order beginning with the number eleven. If a discharged veteran was later readmitted, he kept the number initially issued to him. Many names in these reports are obviously misspelled. A researcher should check the index for various spellings of a name.

The records of the Quincy Home are in the Illinois State Archives, Springfield, Illinois. You may receive photocopies of a soldier's file by writing to the Archives. When making a request, be sure to state the soldier's name, his regiment, and his registry number as found in this book. There may be a nominal charge to cover the cost of the copies.

This volume covers 4,418 separate admissions to the Home between March, 1887, and June 30, 1898. Many re-admissions are also noted. All of the men listed in this book served their country in the Mexican War or the Civil War. Beginning in 1899, Spanish-American War soldiers also became eligible to enter the Home. Projected future volumes of this series will include Spanish-American soldiers as well as veterans of the earlier wars.
