Company D, 32nd Illinois Infantry
- My Third Great Grandfather, John Montgomery
Gearhart, fought for Company D, of the 32nd Illinois
Infantry. He was wounded three seperate times in battle. I
know very little about him, or his battles. His
brother was Levi Gearhart, who died at Andersonville
Prison. Both were Union Soldiers. Levi fought for another
Illinois Infantry. I'm looking for anything on them and on
their participation in the Civil War. Both were from
Athensville, Illinois. Any help would be appreciated.
- Hey Peg, <br><br>Wow. Sounds like you've really
got your family history down. Do you have any
pictures or personal effects of your soldier
ancestors?<br><br>The William Grigsby I found was in the 103rd Illinois
but was killed in TN. Sort of ironic. I shot a few
pictures of some of the old graves at the cemetery. I'd be
happy to email you a copy of William Grigsby's marker.
(I promise I'm not as dark and morbid as I sound!
:)<br><br>Hope all is well!<br>Respectfully,
